No need to worry about me. I got plenty of love despite the fact Cheapy decided to read those glowing comments about me on the show. He's a bastard like that. :)


i want you in every single CAGcast, if possible.

Wow 900 dollars Cheapy? Every time I withdraw money I make sure to be paying full attention

Take it as a lesson man!

Hey Wombat when you pulled your groin how did your wife react? Was she angry? relieved?

:P

To be completely honest, I'm utterly sick of hearing about the 1up crew losing their gig... it's on just about every single gaming website and podcast.

That's fine if you were a fan of it and are disappointed that it doesn't exist the way it used to, but I mean seriously - people have sent them $12g in donations for getting laid off from a job where they could essentially do whatever they want whenever they want? It seems like people are crying a river over something that just isn't that significant. It's become too big of a deal.

:whee:

Sorry - had to vent, I just can't believe people are so sad for a group of frat boys.


Also wanted to say that was an excellent ending to the podcast "I think we just did one"

The interview was good, and RockSolidAudio was a good sport about it. Wombat probably didn't mean to come off like a douche, but that is how it sounded.

Great show Cheapy and Wombat! Nick Suttner was great as a guest. Wombat and Cheapy's stories keep escalating in their disgustingness and awesomeness (though nothing can beat the Drunk Pizza Guy!)

Though the best part of the episode for me was the very begining with the opening song by Justice (One of my favorite music acts), which started the episode strong for me!

If I lost $900, I'd have to just write it off and not let it ruin my week. Id just pretend to enjoy my new imaginary TV or something.

My wife, on the other hand.... well I don't even want to think about her reaction.

I'm 32 and while we wouldn't be screwed, there'd be some drama.

First of all people aren't sending them money for being laid off, people are donating money to help them get their new project and website off the ground and running. Secondly, EGM closing is actually very significant. It was one of the pioneers of gaming publications. Many of us grew up with magazines like EGM being our main source of gaming news and reviews. Thirdly, the former 1UP employees weren't just a bunch of frat boy losers who could do whatever they wanted. They were people working a job like everyone else. They had deadlines to make and standards to uphold just like all other employees.

When people listen to podcasts regularly (if they are like me) they kind of develop a relationship of sorts with the cast and the people involved with the shows. I loved listening to GFW Radio and 1UP Yours, it was a highlight of my day. Not having that anymore really sucks. The same thing applies to the Cagcast, how would you react if tomorrow you found out that the cagcast was over, gone forever without a send-off show or anything? This whole situation is bad for everyone who gave a shit about any of this stuff. Talking about it with other people who feel the same is a good way to help deal with it all.

The show really lives up to its title. Periods, groin pulls, orgasm comparisons, drug deals...good stuff, hilarious as always :lol:

The interview with Nick was insightful and I wouldn't mind hearing more interviews like that in the future. Maybe Cheapy could find a random hardcore Japanese gamer on the streets of Akihabara to give us insight into the Japanese gamer's mind.

If Cagcast went away my life would continue like normal. If you've been a podcast listener for any amount of time and are over the age of 13, you realize shows come and go. Yeah, it sucks but I agree people are taking it a bit too far.

EGM closing is another matter. That deserves the attention.

p.s. Sounds like you need to have better days.

The truth is I actually pulled more positive comments than negative ones for reading on the show. The interview with Nick went longer than expected so I really tried to keep the show moving for fear of a 2 hour monster.

Here are the positive ones I planned on reading:

sickenmcsluggets
Great show...loved shipwreck in it, such a perfect mix of really different personalities. Porn or DS game was great. Ship really seemed to be getting
into it!

Froogin
I've gotta say that most of my favorite shows so far are the ones with shipwreck on it, I just enjoy the way the show moves along with a third person, it gives the show a fresh feel and it sounded like Cheapy liked not having to keep the entire show moving along on his own. Also, Wombats the shit.

aknowlesjr
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.

also Cheapy- never have Shipwreck on the show again or I'll send you a bag of poo.

Cheapy, heard you mention some religious documentaries, check out Deliver us from Evil. My wife didn't want to finish watching it because the guy is so nonchalant about what he did.
Not enough time to beat any games, dammit!

I hope you are not insinuating that I am some kind of emo 13 year old just because I am bummed about the whole 1UP thing. I was just describing my feelings towards the situation, the podcasts specifically. I'm not depressed about this, if my previous post sounded that way I didn't mean for it to. It's just something I liked for a long time that's not there anymore and never will be again, at least not in the same capacity.

Just because you don't give a shit about the people who bring these podcasts to you every week doesn't mean none of us do. I'm know I'm not alone in my thinking here, both on this website and others.

Cheapy, do you really need to worry about the length of the show? people can pause the shows you know. i don't mind if you went on for 4 hours! it's not a live show anyways, why are you guys worried about that? :-k

So the Asian version of Afrika has full English support? Including the menus?

I ask this because I imported Pro Baseball Spirits 4 from PlayAsia and while I enjoyed the game I had to get rid of it because I don't know a damn word of Japanese. ;)

Thanks for reading my disturbing question on the show about Japanese orgasms. Cheapy I can't believe you asked your wife that. O_o;

Anyway I'll try to keep the questions more Video game related in the future.

Keep up the great work!

I am insinuating you are some kind of 13 year old because you are acting like one.

Look, I enjoyed 1Up yours and GFW immensely (the 1UP show was crap) and I will miss listening to them but some people act like their mother died*. Maybe I'm jaded but there have been many podcasts I've listened to over the years that have gone kaput. You just have to enjoy them while they are around and archive the ones you want to keep.

Besides a good many of these people will resurface on other or new shows.


*just to be clear I am talking about the listeners. Losing a job especially one you love sucks. IMO, any employee that was laid off in this mess have every right to act like their mother died.

Interesting interview, not sure I cared enough as I was not very concerned about 1up being dismantled. I of course feel for those involved, losing your job is horrible no matter what you did, how easy or hard it was. However, I completely understand shuttering their podcasts, the production quality was bad. The personalities were overplayed and generally annoying. I find it humerous that they actually plan to keep retronaughts, I loved the topic of the podcast but couldn't listen to it because the sound quality and production value was terrible and the people on it had voices that made me want to run into traffic. I would much rather read the transcript than listen to the terrible podcasts on 1up. They were interesting but impossible to listen to for me.

I found this episode to be one of the best CAGCasts in quite some time. Although it may not be interesting for all of those listening to delve into the personal life of Nick Suttner, I however found it fascinating to hear a personal account of what so many people are facing in this economy. Nick seems to be a consummate professional, and I really enjoyed his interview.

If expressing my thoughts on this matter in a somewhat articulate manner makes me a 13 year old then I guess I am guilty as charged. All I know about you so far is that your username is "usickenme" (if that's not a 13 year old username I don't know what is) and you seem like a douche bag. Otherwise we are good.
