Its funny how the Cagcast a few episodes ago was knocking a IGN US reviewer about rating a soccer sim coaching game and giving it a 2. You guys where saying that he rated it as a soccer game and not as a coaching sim game. Now everyone on the cagcast (mainly Shipwreck) is ripping on LBP in the same way, you guys just say that it is a bad game without comparing it to anything in its genre out there. The only other 2D platformer out there this year that I can think of is Braid, but they are still way different. In order to say something is aweful or bad, you need to have something to compare it to. Just because it may not be your type of game, does not mean that it is a horrible game. I hate Saints Row 2 because its a sanbox game, but I am not going around to people like Cheapy and telling them how horrible it is.

This is full of spoilers so skip this post if you dont want to know.


here is the issue with the two face ending, throughout the movie Harvey is the enemy of the Mob and vows to take them down any way possible. You also have the Joker plot, part of his plot line is how Gotham "deserves a better class of criminal". The Joker also charges the mob 50% of all their money.

The idea of half the money is important, foreshadowing. What does he do when get his half, he burns it. Half burnt, sounds familiar, more foreshadowing.

Harvey knows where all the money is also, because Eric Roberts tells the police so they can get the Joker. The police never make it because of the whole hospital thing.

Harvey wanting revenge on Gordon doesn't fit, the Joker also doesnt really plant that seed when he is in the hospital. Harvey needs to go after the mob. It should end with Harvey taking down the Mob the only way he really can. By becoming the mob (like he does in the comics). It should end with harvy half burnt standing behind the half burnt giant pile of money. Its the twisted ending, where everyone wins.

Harvey does take down the mob, and the Joker gets his new wave of criminal. Its a better ending. I can go into more detail but this post is long enough.


Shame on people like Shipwreck :shame:

Cheapy,

About your love of documentaries .. I'd like to suggest you watch Off The Grid: Life on the Mesa. It's a very interesting documentary about people who live in a 15 square mile area of the Nevada desert. This area is free to anyone to live and there is basically no government control. With that, there is also no running water or electricity. The people that live in this area are very "unique" to say the least.

Quote of the show: "I have 2 people I'd like to get on, and he's one of them". Priceless.

Great show as always. I busted out laughing when you guys read the dressing up as santa question. Though i guess it could be somewhat pertaining more to Cheapy considering Tai is a Japew (i know Japanese isnt a religion, but i dont quite know what Mrs Cheapy is)

Ive been a bit of an audiophile lately, so after the last show, hearing cheapy's review of the Turtle Beach X4's, i dropped $150 + a $25 GC on them @ Amazon. Yes I know its not cheap, but i've been doing good thanks to flipping, I also donated $125 to Child's Play earlier in the week.

thanks guys for a great podcast. I do have a question though. I was listening to the Cast on my drive home. I was having problems where the loudness of Cheapy was so much higher than Ship or Wombat that I had to fluctuate the volume levels every time some one talked.

My track was muted a little because my headphones were leaking into my mic so you could hear Cheapy and Wombat on my track as well. I didn't catch this in testing, so Cheapy did his best to adjust my track in the post-show editing so that you couldn't hear them in the background.

Also Cheapy is a loudmouthed shnook

he does have the best mic so his silky smooth baritone comes in the best quality where everyone else if muffled by weaker quality microphones. ha.

I liked the way the Dark Knight ended, I guess I am in the minority here. I felt it tied everything together pretty well in the movie.

I Loved the combination of all three of you guys (Cheapy, Shipwreck and Wombat). Awesome chemistry and most of all extremely entertaining. You guys should do this at least one a month. Also... is it possible for one of you to try and Coax Shipwreck into dropping an F-Bomb since Foreplay is more of a Rated G podcast where the CAGcast is rated NC-17? Loved this episode... I too could help but laugh out loud during th emushroom sgement... WTF is with you guys and having these moments ALWAYS play when I am on the bus and ppl look at me funny because I look like I am laughing at the most Hilarious thing ever? This is like the 4th time... Just the time and because I chose to Listen to CAG podcasts while I am on Public Transit.. lol. Keep up the good work guys... oh and you too WOMBAT... Don't Whine... I mentioned your name! Look I even wrote your name in caps thus giving you Attention!!! lol jk
