Also, Cheapy

let John know that he needs to view his trophies from the Trophies list in the Games section of the XMB for them to appear on his PSN card.

It's kind of weird but the trophies need to be viewed to Sync with the PSN Card.

I thought WTF too when I did not see mine appear but viewing the list should clear it up.



^this, and also, here's how you delete all your incoming messages:

find the "Message Box" icon (above your Friends' List), hit "X" to open to the 3 message boxes, scroll to the "Received" box, press "TRIANGLE", then select "Delete All". Done!

See, deleting all those messages on your PS3 is much easier than you realized!

I'm not sure why John the programmer would be whining about his trophies when a few people offered up fixes for his problem in the SSHD thread, so if he didn't listen, it's his own fault. There's no reason to hate the trophies if you don't take suggestions to fix his problem.

Is this 2006, Cheapy, with the Qore install whining? You have to install stuff on the PS3 now? When did that happen?

First of all I'd like to say I've only recently started listening to the show, but I've almost listened to all the episodes. Love the show and what Cheapy/Wombat are doing for the gaming community.

Recently though I've noticed the energy level isn't what it used to be. In fact even though Cheapy was probably just trying to be funny, I noticed he and Wombat seemed really disappointed in the Diggs/iTunes reviews they've gotten or the lack there of.

I for one have dugg up the Cagcast on Digg. I referred a friend to the show. And today I started to review them on iTunes until I realized Apple wants a credit card just for the privelage of having an account. Yes I know they won't charge it unless you buy something. But I refuse to give them that kind of information if I have no plans of buying anything from the store.

Anyways the point of this post is to go out of my way to tell Cheapy/Wombat how much I love the show and hope that they know there are fans making an effort to help out.

Lastly, I hope to help cheapy understand why there aren't more people writing reviews on iTunes. I doubt it's just me that for one never had a desire to have an account on iTunes even though I own an iPod. And I also imagine most people that have no plans of buying from the iTunes store would want to provide a credit card to Apple, afterall we are cheapassgamers right? :lol:

concerning what raistlin said about listening to all the episodes in a short period of time, i did the same thing. This was definitely the most enjoyable podcast experience i've ever had. CAGcast was and still is great.

I don't mind wombat's comments on the 360. It really is pathetic that Microsoft can not fix this problem. i love my 360 and will be really disappointed when it dies.

Wombat, i wish you good luck with the birth. You seem like the kind of guy that will be a good father. You have a good sense of humor and a firm moral grounding.

Cheapy, have you thought about doing some live blogging with your Mac Book on your blog, instead of worrying about doing a podcast, since you think you'll have no time?

Wombat you should complain at the Microsoft event about your 360 problems.

Also, is the general consensus that none of the chipsets have helped the red ring? I bought mine last August, right when the HDMI ones came out, and it works still.

I totally agree with the Aerosmith complaints you have. I mean i played through it twice and found it fun, but the were some songs in there that were not needed like Uncle Salty.

another stellar show guys. Even rushed CAG is my favourite podcast out there.

Wombat expressed some conflicting emotions regarding the apparant disbanding of the LucasArts internal development.

I'm not just trying to give you a cop out to buy the game but one position you didn't consider is what if by buying Star Wars: Force Unleashed we send the message to LucasArts that we like their internally developed games. What if by the luck of the straw this game sells so well LucasArts reconsiders closing down development? By that logic you almost have to buy Force Unleashed and have to refused to purchase anything else they do afterwards.

E3 prediction. Nintendo will announce new DS hardware redesign.

I don't think the DS needs a redesign. I keep reading about how 'Nintendo loves redesigns' but if you do the math I don't think it happens as much as everyone seems to imply. (Gameboy; Gameboy Color) (GBA; GBA SP) (DS; DS Lite) The micro came so late in the game you can barely count it. However distasteful I would have found it for ANOTHER design of the DS. At this point I say NO way. now with Guitar Hero DS requiring the GBA Slot. If you're not taking out the GBA slot there's no need for a redesign.

Master chief is not dead?

there's a working theory that links the end of Halo 3 to the Marathon series.

And today I started to review them on iTunes until I realized Apple wants a credit card just for the privelage of having an account.

I guess you haven't caught up on all the episodes yet this issue was brought up a few eps ago. Yes Apple asks for a credit card, but you can sign in with an AOL account and give a review that way as well. An AOL account is free and easy and doesn't require a CC.

I agree that we do not need a lead character for Halo. Nobody really cares who is the lead, they just want to play multiplayer. Halo 3 is called Backtrack by me and my friends. In that game you do not care about the characters you care about the weapons.

Cheapy, next time E3 or PAX or any other big event pops up in the gaming industry, and it's a bit too big for 1 or 2 guys to cover, get a couple of highly trusted CAGs in on it, give them a "reporting" assignment, and have a CAG team cover a gaming event together.

As you said, it's not like CAG is a major hub for gaming event information, but that's all more the reason to get a team of people together (that can be trusted and work for cheap) so you can relax a bit and enjoy the event, rather than trying to take Wombat's coveted title of "Hardest Working Man in the Video Game Industry".

CAG may just be an internet forum, but we're also a community. I imagine there will be a few CAGs available at most events that can toss in a decent reporting job or interview, and help the site grow.

Hell, if we're trying to set up a panel of CAG game reviewers, why not a panel of CAG interviewers? I'm sure that out of the thousands that visit this site daily, there are a few clean-cut people capable of handling an interview without teabagging the guest.

I agree with some points from both Cheapy and Wombat with the 360 marketshare situation.

The RRoD hurt them big. They shouldve been putting nails in PS3's coffin early, with the idea being that they would end up like the XBOX/GC scenario: Lose in Japan, win worldwide.

The ceiling on 360 marketshare is a larger issue that affects the PS3 as well, and that issue is that is it catering to a niche crowd, relatively speaking.

The last issue is price drops. The effect that the price drop has depends on your marketshare position. They have never been able to reverse the fortunes of a console.

For instance, when XBOX and GC had a price drop, the boost was temporary.
Meanwhile, when the PS2 dropped, it had much more success and served to widen the gap between it and their competitors.
***
Another point on developer/publisher conduct. Yes, it does matter to some people. I will not be buying games published by Gamecock anymore because their people are dicks in public, the worst of which being the SpikeTV incident. I'll have to go used, which is unfortunate, because they look like they are publishing some decent games. EA has been doing much better as far as corporate conduct, but their games still are lacking to me so it doesnt matter.

I read on a forum once, and it makes sense, that the problem is that MSFT can't really fix it because if they do they are admitting that there is a serious design flaw. And if they do that, then all 360's would than have to be recalled and fixed. And that would cost a lot more money than what they are doing now. However, I get the feeling eventually it will have to be done.
