I don't think it would be a good idea to make CAGplay Forecast its own separate podcast, instead just have the episode appear on both the CAGcast feed and Foreplay feed.

Wombat's game of "DS or Porno title" is the most hilarious thing I've heard in a while.

Great show. Nice to have Shipwreck on the cast. He does add some class and respectability. The Foreplay cast is great too though.
The porn website thing was the best. This is classic crazy Cheapy and what brings me back to the CagCast week after week. The dick in a 360 deal was also great. Another example of unique Cagcast humor.
Keep up the great work and look forward to another year of Cagcast. I'll be listening for the second time tomorrow at work. The masses thank you for your efforts.

I'm not going to judge your choices being that they're what you had the most fun with, but I really wish I could have had as much fun with Fable 2 as you guys did. I simply can not get passed the constant bugs, freezings, errors and any other technical difficulties. This is really a shame being that I really was seeming to love the game. It's not my system or my disc as I have tried multiple copies of the game and many other people have the same problems.


I got the animation bug where your character gets stuck and doesn't walk - luckily, it spontaneously resolved itself. Had that been a permanent thing, I wouldn't have played another second of the game. I understand what you're getting at!

The only thing that disappointed me about Cheapy and Ship is that you guys really aren't playing your PS3 enough. You guys missed out on the gems of the console.

The month that PJM came out, the PS3 practically overheated from use. :D

Great Show! I would love to hear Shipwreck join Cheapy and Wombat every week. I also really like the concept of sharing your picks of the games you enjoyed most in 08, because in the end, its not about frame rates, or game length or story lines, its about how much fun you get out of it.

enjoyed the show, guys. great to have you back, cheapy. though, you guys may be shooting yourselves in the foot (feet?) there. now, the people will want shipwreck in the mix all the time.

the porno vs. ds game was great. i actually used to have kelly the co-ed on dvd.

big shout out to ice pirates. i saw that movie only once when i was a kid, yet i've never forgotten that conveyor belt & metal teeth scene.

Anyways, I know Cheapy doesn't think he is biased but trust me, from someone who listens to like 14 different gaming podcasts on and off, the show is definitely biased towards the 360. 360 demo's and Xbox live arcade games are often-times discussed in detail while similar things on the PS3 and Wii are glossed over as if they didn't exist.

I do not list to 14 gaming podcasts; I merely listen to a few. But on all my gaming podcasts, there are two major things I have noticed: the Xbox 360 gets the majority of the coverage, and no one is playing their Wiis. I do not think CheapyD is an anomoly in that he didn't finish a Wii or a PS3 game; I am sure there are other CAGs who are in similar situations.

I understand that Cheapy is a 360 fan but if he's going to do a multi-platform gaming podcast he really should broaden his gaming. I mean you heard the podcast, he didn't complete any PS3 or Wii games the entire year! He couldn't even give a Wii game of the year nomination because he only played 2 games the entire year on it and then admits that it hasn't been plugged in for months. That's ok for a regular gamer but not for someone who is trying to be a icon in the world of gaming.


I have heard this argument before, that it is CheapyD and the CAGCast's job to cover all games equally. I do not agree. I think the job of the CAGCast is to be entertaining. I would much rather have CheapyD talk to me about the games he enjoyed and why, rather than things he is struggling to get through just to make listeners happy. He is better to listen to when he's happy about gaming.

There is only one area that CAG needs to be fair to all systems, and that is deals. If the deal section suddenly became only Xbox 360 games, then I would start worrying. But as long as he covers everything there, I'm good.

I was also wondering what the opening music was, and a google of "you got it mashup" eventually landed at Girl Talk. It's the track "In Step" on the Feed the Animals album there..

Thanks for choosing NGII shipwreck. I feel slightly vindicated knowing that someone else whose favorite last gen game was NGI also saw through NGII's laziness. It shouts "where's my million dollar bonus for DoA4 bitches"

opening track was girl talk edit: beaten

I'm working my way through the podcast right now, but I really admire that you guys not only lamented the end of 1up but gave a whole-hearted endorsement of RockSolidAudio. It has been terrible to watch the guillotine on the 1up staff-- layoffs are always painful to hear about.

Really good show this week. I don't know why, but I just loved this episode. Maybe it was the 'Porno or DS game' segment... you should have more quirky segments like those. gg Wombat

The beta for the new games collection system just sounds odd for just forums.

None of you played Mirror's Edge? I thought Wombat said on the CAGplay Forecast that he was playing it.

I hope you guys played the second episode of Penny Arcade Adventures since it's even better and offers more difficulties if you want that sort of thing. It's $15 and the second episode offers much more replay value. Plus, it's another easy 200 points.

I don't think Mario Kart Wii would win any awards because the series hasn't really improved at all since Super Mario Kart, as I've never been interested or enthralled by any Mario Kart games since SMK.

I never really paid much attention to what World of Goo was supposed to be like, but it sounds a lot like Elefunk on PSN, which is about building bridges for elephants to cross to the goal.

I know you guys think this is the worst game in the world, but LBP also shows you the high score of the friend right above you on your friendlist leaderboard.

Didn't you hype up GTAIV a ton before launch, Cheapy? I'd be interested in hearing about why you put the blame all on everybody else and not any on yourself. I remember you bringing a certain someone on the Live CAGcast before its launch to talk about his "special" version of the game and talk about how life-changing GTAIV was.

Good show, though it sounded like Cheapy wanted to go back to sleep as soon as Wombat and Shipwreck would just shut up.

I was also wondering what the opening music was, and a google of "you got it mashup" eventually landed at Girl Talk. It's the track "In Step" on the Feed the Animals album there..

I really enjoyed this week's show. After the disappointing news about 1up, this was a great pick me up. To all the people complaining about bias, Cheapy and Co. are not professional games journalists. They play what they want and they try to deliver podcast content to the CAG users. If you are looking for an all-encompassing podcast you are in the wrong place. Even as comprehensive as Shipwreck is, even he misses things. Ease up CAG community.

Why buy the Wombat when UGO can milk his jewy nipples for free?
its sad whats going on with the UGO 1up fallout. It was pretty obvious that Ziff was sinking when there was a mass exodus of staffers last year, I even addressed job security on a 1up blog last year and Rocksolidaudio responded with "do you think we'd be hiring if we were shutting down". I hate to say I told you so but I told you so. Best of Luck to the 1up crew. There goes CAGcast's major competition, and its just the beginning of the corporate fat trimming coming this year. Its just more proof that Cheapy has the best job in the industry.

You know you guys should post a video of you and Ship playing. (game has video recording now).
I was playig PJM yesterday and I was showing it to my cousin, the music and the ring menu instantly made him think of Secret of Mana (SNES) - Now every time I play it I think about SoM.

I think that you and ship are going to end up playing more games for the PS3 in 2009. Did you guys ever try out Pixel Junk Eden... that's my favorite.

The picture with the cereal....no it couldn't be....WOMBAT? Now that that's out of the way excellent show fellas. I think you should just merge the cagcast and cagforeplay. The more voices in one show the better. Clearly the ships bring so much to the table so why have 2 seperate shows? I hope my suggestion wont fall on deaf ears.

..i know that literally 98% of it is crap , But you didnt even play MArio Cart, world of Goo wasnt bad either (but its also available on PC) - AND the system didn't Debut at the 'over $500' price point . When the Atari came out in '77 it was $200 the wii was only $50 more ant that was almost $30 years later, THATs technology working for you, YOu call yourself Cheap ASS but you don't mind that most of the new systems cost more than I can buy an old junker car (that runs) for !?

Nice show guys. 8-)

I liked Cheapy's pick of Saints Row 2 as his GOTY because it's based entirely on what game he had the most fun with, not what game looked the best or had the most-engaging story. Videogames are about having fun, so a GOTY should be the one that you had the most fun with.

I know after playing games like GTA IV and Gears 2, and then playing SR2, my first thought was, "Wow, this game is UGLY!". But after I got past that, I enjoyed it quite a bit, almost more than GTA. It's definitely one of my favorite games of the year as well.

It’s not that entertaining to hear about the same games for the same systems week in and week out. Given the amount of positive feedback Shipwreck is getting, it seems pretty clear that the limited gaming palette of the hosts is getting boring. Cheapy himself buys all sorts of shit just to “talk about on the show”, so it seems to the he recognizes that due diligence should be a part of the show (even if he doesn’t always practice it).

That said, everything outside the game talk is great.

It's just the thing about only giving access to a finished section of the site to a small amount of people instead of releasing it for everyone when it's four months past due.
