Ship,

If you like FiF and BSS, then I assume you've listened to Roper? Roper is (as far as I know) Reece Roper's current band. "Brace Yourself for the Mediocre" by Roper is a really solid album.

Also, have you listened to the newest JoC album "Good Monsters?" It's a real return-to-form for me. Plankeye's "Commonwealth" was one of the two albums (along with Seven Day Jesus' "The Hunger") that got me started into making my own music. It looks like we have very similar musical taste.

What do you think about Shane & Shane and David Crowder?


Yes, I guess I should have grouped Roper and Guerilla Rodeo in there with FIF as well. Good Monsters is good, their new single "Closer" reminds me of their "If I Left the Zoo" album which is one of my favorite albums of all time.

The Hunger is an amazing album as well. They really messed with Seven Day Jesus' sound when their non-5 Minute Walk album came out. If you liked "The Hunger", I'm guessing you would enjoy Black Eyed Sceva/Model Engine as well.

I've actually never heard of Shane & Shane, but I could take or leave David Crowder. I'll give Shane & Shane a listen.

Edit: Oh, one of the "Shanes" is Shane Barnard. Same as Crowder then, take it or leave it. Doesn't really do much for me, they both just sound like the music you hear at a contemporary service. (Which, I know is a weird thing to say since a lot of their songs are used in those services.)

I thought you two would never shut up about fantasy football.I'll watch football if someone else is watching it, but I don't bother following it. I stopped liking pro sports about the time I realized that they would make more money in a year for playing with their balls, than I would make by doing honest work throughout my entire lifetime.
Guitar Praise is something that should be recipient of a lawsuit, but won't because that would be bad press for activision/harmonix. Even though I stopped going to church a long time ago, I might by it if it had full band 4 players like Rock Band and had some Stryper on the setlist.

Wombat and Shipwreck make a fun pair with only one immature host instead of two.

This is indeed a crossover. Cagcast is Superman and Cagforeplay is The Flash, they're both the same company and universe but they don't usually interact and when they do its a crossover event.

Well, I haven't finished the show yet, but awesome so far... I love it when Shipwreck joins the CAGcast and Wombat is always entertaining.

Like someone said above, I did find it odd when Wombat complained about not enough Nordic stuff and being able to change the names of everyone and not know it was Nordic, but then said he skipped the cutscenes... Not sure it's fair to complain about story elements when you skip them.


Oh, and one other thing that it seems everyone on the internet seems to buy into. How is the 360 still just a shooter box? Is there any other console where you can get the same quality RPGs--Western or Japanese? Sure, I have GoW and Halo on my shelf collecting dust, but Fable:TLC, Mass Effect, and Oblivion are still getting play. Fable 2 and Fallout are my short-list for must-buys this Fall. And my buddy just bought Tales of Vesparia (sp?) for us to co-op at his house. The 360 may be a shooter-box, but it's just as much an RPG-box too. Maybe the misconception is b/c RPGs may not sell or be as sexy as the shooters.

Wombat: Was the Fantasy Football league always proposed as the Wombat Football League or was that one of your demands before considering possibly becoming a part of the league?

You can't compare the Wii and the Dreamcast, because the Dreamcast was actually a good system.

And also a great show, good to know there's always a backup when one of you is out of town, Shipwreck's a great replacement and should be on the CAGcast more often.

Well, when the show started, I was a little leery, you guys were kind of rough at first. But you settled into it, and the show ended up being pretty good. I didn't mind the tangential topics, like the fantasy football stuff, but maybe I'm just easily entertained after the horrendous month I've had at work...

This is like the nerdier version of Cagcast.

I don't think Wombat is a hater at all. He likes what he likes. It comes from experience and I bet he has a job, wife and child that don't allow him to play every game that comes along just because it says videogame on it.

As for WoW, well you can solo up to level 70 and beyond. I mostly solo-ed in WoW. I would group together with friends when our schedules sync-ed up, but that wasn't too often. The key is to just enjoy the journey and not worry about getting this or that gear. There's always better gear anyway. And the upcoming xpac will only reset all that. And if you do have the very best gear it means your computer chair needs replacing.

You can mange the WoW time if you want to although there's always temptation around the corner.

I like the final fantasy football talk in the beginning of the show. Haha, didn't expect that. After listening to the Too Human bit, I'm kinda interested now, but, I think I'll wait till it turns to a budget title.

Keep up the good work guys. =]

Really enjoyed this show, even though it lacked polish there was lots of substance to it. Liked the talk about Guitar Praise as well, as a Christian Im hoping its solid. Sorry Wombat there's no Jew Hero announcement as of yet.

I liked the show and while I guess I'm in the minority who still plays my Wii, maybe I just move too slowly through the games. I have a ton of games to play. And, since you mentioned it, I threw up a request for the Spider-Man PS1 game on Goozex. Hooray!

Granted their are some great JRPGs on the 360 and I'm very glad I have it for that reason. But I consider Mass Effect a shooter with RPG-lite elements. And I'm sure Fallout will be similar (though I do have it preordered). No one ever said there weren't other type of games, anyway, but the emphasis for all the heavy-hitting releases and the ones Xbox 360 owners seem to give the most attention to are the shooters. If it wasn't for Ship, Vesperia would hardly get a mention on the CAGcast ;).

I think I'd much rather have a CheapyD MsShipwreck show.

After listening to this podcast i listed my Wii on ebay. I thought you guys were joking by saying nothing was coming out for the rest of the year. Then I looked and realized that the only game I would have any interested in is Animal Crossing. Shipwreck was right. Every Nintendo game has already come out for the Wii. I figure I can sell now and then just buy one for maybe 200 new in a year or two when a new Zelda comes out or something.


I'm waiting until X-mas time so I can get top dollah! The wii = massive letdown

Hard to avoid Fantasy Football talk. You hear it on the radio, TV, podcasts, ESPN, blurbs on Madden 09, etc, etc. For me, I find it most annoying when it comes from friends who never seem to shut up about it. They keep trying to coach me on my nonexistent team and asking me who my picks are. I tell them I don't have any picks because I don't wanna do it this year...annnd they just go on about their team.

At least Wombat and Ship kept it to minimum. It didn't resurface too much throughout the podcast.

I think I'd much rather have a CheapyD MsShipwreck show.


That should be the next CAGplay Forecast. Then something crazy like all four hosts. I'll pay quadruple for those issues!

Good to see the other two thirds of team Xbox hook up. I didn't think the show would go on without Cheapy. was the show good? I don't know, I still need to listen to it. But I enjoy all the shows Wombat and Shipwreck have collaborated on.... not perfect, but still good!

I just thought it was funny that last crossover, even Shipwreck sounded weary from Wombat's antics. This was seemed like a bizarro (if we're just going to throw around more comic book references) episode where Wombat professes his love for three Japanese game franchises and Shipwreck comes up with excuses not to play some games that I thought would be day one purchases.

Good work guys. Very solid show. I think this episode should've been titled "Wombat Tries" as he was on top of everything and caught even Shipwreck off-guard with his preparedness.

Shipwreck is awesome and Wombat relishes the "Guy You Love to Hate" role but I have to say the following rule should apply when Cheapy is gone: No Cheapy should = No Podcast. You two had about as much chemistry as President Bush's senior year in college. I like spaghetti, I like ice cream, I don't like spaghetti ice cream. Your own podcast shows are where you belong. Only Cheapy can bring forth the magic and unite the two clans. Until that day shall the airwaves remain silent.

Given the pictures I've seen of you and ship, I'm going with ice cream. ;) Of course, compared to ship, almost EVERYBODY would be ice cream. ;)

Edit: I realized after I posted that it might've sounded mean. For the record, I think there's nothing wrong with being ice cream. :)
