Cheapy, just throwing my support behind your position that starting the business is the most challenging and demanding part. I completely agree that you are, at least to some extent, entitled to enjoy the fruits of your initial labor by having others do the grunt work. If it weren't for you, there wouldn't be grunt work to do. It's just that simple.

I disagree, Wombat. :-( I dislike the BioShock PS3 exclusive DLC. I think it's not worth 10 bucks. It would have been nice if the DLC was more relevant to/expanded on the BioShock story.

I hope you wind up digging Fallout 3, Wombat. I think it's the Game of the Year. :mrgreen:

The #1 benefit to loading the games directly to the Hard Drive is now Microsoft will release more multidisk games and not be too worried about being pressed about a BLU-Ray 360. Everyone complains about swapping disks, now for 15mins of install time, play your 10-25 GB game with no delay.



I can see that happening but I feel that the disk swapping complaint is overrated. After playing through MSG4, I would gladly take a disk swap over those damn installs.

Hey Cheapy...

Just curious, what's Osaka Grandma's e-mail address?

And no, I'm not asking so I can send her pictures of her son-in-law shackled to a wall in his socks and underwear with a big goofy grin on his face, nor to remind her that her own flesh-and-blood daughter was the one with the audacity to point a camera at him.

I just wanna say "hi."

$1/costume? In my opinion they'd be better off making them free but limited edition. Like iTunes free download of the week. I'm gonna have to side with CheapyD on this one and say "no dice sony"

I am very disappointed in your coverage of the Beatles game. I am not a major Beatles fan, but even I knew enough from overhearing the press release that Harmonix is not planning on making another RockBand style music game. ...

To defend Wombat. He never said they were making Rockband:Beatles Edition. That was just sort of a code name. Most of this is conjecture. These are the people who brought us Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero II, at least 4 Karaoke Revolution games and then later Rockband it's not too far a stretch to assume that the game will involve playing music in a similar fashion. I have a better chance of winning the lotto than this game not being about playing music. That doesn't mean it has to be limited to music but anyone who hears Harmonix and thinks they're making a platformer starring John Lennon and Ringo Star as P2 is being ridiculous.

You're not the first person to say "Across the Universe: The Game" as a potential basis.. but I'm not even sure what that means. I know AtU. How you gamize it in a way that's not Karaoke is beyond me.

Odd thing is, if Cheapy had just hung around the lobby, I'm sure someone would have mistaken him for one of the Hotel props....

Wii is successful because it's unique and fun and a mainstream experience. The 360 is no substitute for anybody looking for a Wii. The 360 pricecut won't change that.

Good show, Wombat, and Cheapy!

Cheapy, I'm sad to see that you're interest for Little Big Planet has somewhat dimished; especially, it was you who convinced me to try the game out. I have to admit, I was skeptical about the game, but after trying it out, I have to say I love it, and the created levels have been very good. I think its just you got overhyped for LBP.


Wombat, I wish you could be in charge of Sega, they don't know you... But they NEED YOU! Sega has a lot to offer, when they became a software only company, I felt like they would become as strong as EA, they had a sports franchise(s), they had great IP(s), lots of potential. Since becoming software only, I mean, they're performance has been poor. They've managed to lose their sports franchise, Sonic IP has been diminished, and they aren't fully capitalizing on their great IPs. (i.e. Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, online co-op 2D side scrollers in HD, both with redrawn graphics) The success of Castle Crashers is the proof that Sega could do well off some beat em ups. But back to your point, Sega will cater to any and everyone, but the fans.

Sony for the holiday season I feel will do well, will they break even - NO, but you do have to stop the bleeding; Walmart has the 100 dollar gift card deal coming back, and I think that the retailers may come with some creative deals to get the PS3s to move. However, the biggest issue with the PS3 (and this is Sony's responsibility to clarify) is that 399.99 for an 80gb PS3 is not anywhere equivalent to an 199.99 360. A PS3 for 399.99 should come with some free games so it can compete with the xboxs higher end model and not with the base model.

The question that needs to be asked, for 399 whose giving the best deal? Right now I'd have to say its the 360 because it comes with two games, headset AND a bigger harddrive.

Nothing to fear, it must of saved that special code from the last time I visited your Flickr? As when I went to the Flickr page in Internet Explorer the pictures didn't show up and also when I deleted my cache in Firefox.

Just trying to watch your back. ;)

cheapy, when you said that you were getting mirror's edge for ps3 just because people are getting angry just because you play the 360 most of the time i got fustrated .. big deal, for god sakes you have the system isnt that enough for the ps3 "fanboys". just play a game on any system you want. i personally own all 3 and i enjoy them without people telling me what game to play them on. first they bitch that you dont do anything and now they want you to play on a systen they want you to. whats next they decide when you are able to go to the bathroom? i know you are trying to keep your fans happy but damn.

Wombat, regarding the whole P.E.T.A. situation... I think it's a bit different when requesting a company like Sega to get rid of a "controversial" advertisement and having them totally re-haul a game. My point being is that it would of cost Sega a lot more to do one instead of the other. Yeah, Sega basically gave us the finger with Beast Rider, but if they really cared about the opinion of their loyal, old-school customers, they wouldn't of went in that direction to begin with.

Great show as always gentleman. Well as for some feedback on the show i gotta say im defiantly looking forward to a Beatles game seeing as my grandfather was their tailor. So i guess im sorta biased though. I would still prefer it delivered as dlc unless they do like wombat suggested and did Beatles instruments. If you actually read this feedback on next week show i will record myself eating a hat, and put the video on youtube. Have a good week guys.
