Just to comment on the buying Porn.

Sometimes getting quaility requires buying.

Sure I could find a rip of it, but then it won't have all the special features :wink:

Good show otherwise, alot of games discussed which was great!

A) I'm glad to hear Wombat is gettin' his Dead Space groove on! I think that game is completely revolutionary as an over-the-shoulder shooter, and the story is also top-notch. (I put the movie on my Netflix queue yesterday.) Dead Space suffered from coming out between Fallout 3 and Fable II - if it had come out a month away on either side, I think it'd have done miles and miles better. CheapyD and Shipwreck (and anyone else who doesn't own it), go buy this one so EA knows to make Dead Space 2!

B) Regarding the Playboy DVD buyer - well hey, sometimes Internet service gets interrupted. Or the guy just moved in and it wasn't set up yet. Or his computer crashed or something.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

This is the first podcast I have listened to. Yes I have been living under a rock for the last few years, but I enjoyed listening while I worked today. Looks like I'll be tuning in more often in the future! Thanks Cheapy, Wombat, and Shipwreck!

A note on Deathtank. The game cannot be compared to Worms, Scorched Earth, Gunbound, or Pocket Tanks since it's in real time. The gameplay is completely hectic when you get 5 or more players together and really fun. Shipwreck made it sound really bad by saying that you enter coordinates, but really you just have an arrow above your tank. Point it in the direction you want to fire and adjust the length for velocity, all done with the left stick.

Snowblind did an excellent job remaking this game for XBLA. I am a huge fan of Death Tank Zwei which was a hidden game on Duke Nukem 3D for Saturn. My friends and I still play it to this day. I feel cheated that the game costs $15 though because nobody will buy it and there won't be anybody to play with online.

Excellent show guys! I'm glad to hear Shipwreck was there, even if he didn't speak too much.

Not really much else to say, only that it was very entertaining as usual, and I'm looking forward for the next show! The CAGcast might be late, but it always delivers ;).
The most difficult game of all is life: 1up, no pause, no save-feature, no strategy guide. Just pray you can get someone to play co-op.

Wombat's artery-strangling outrage over the idiocy behind the KZ2 demo/preorder thang is something I share. I find it boggling from a marketing perspective. But I didn't get bent about it, and (I noticed Wombat was suspiciously silent following this comment), like Cheapy, spent a whopping 3 minutes to make a UK account and downloaded the demo.

And the whole Left 4 Dead - PS3 money going to marketing theory is pretty fascinating, since it relies on the assumption that all PS3 releases are not profitable to publishers, as well as overlooks (intentionally?) the idea that Valve has been quite outspoken in their disdain for the PS3 itself (meaning that they aren't codeveloping two console versions of the game, just like EA had to outsource porting of Orange Box, which adds a whole new layer of dynamics and development costs to this particular title that is simply not the case for most other multiplatform titles).

I mean, I know you think it's adorable to try to raise the ire of "PS3 fanboys." But please stick to facts plausible to the real world when doing so. Hackneyed, not-good-enough-to-be-half-baked theories are the realm of...well, podcasts are suitable outlets for opinionated, uninformed schmucks, so I guess I can't complain. You're in the right place.

I thought the podcast was great, I like the addition of Shipwreck. I agree with the sentiment about the Killzone 2 demo, why in the heck would you require pre-order of a game to play the demo? Hurray for Valve for getting Microsoft to agree to the free L4D content.

Wow, no CagCast or Foreplay for 2 weeks and we get a virtual gloss-over new releases for the Wii from Shipwreck? I'm disappointed. I expect that from Cheapy, but not from the game guru.

No Deadly creatures, no House of the Dead Overkill, Ultimate Shooting Collection, or Rygar? At least Wombat, who just happened to be in an enclosed space where there were some unavoidable Wii games, remembered to report on something for that little white box no one likes.

And the whole Left 4 Dead - PS3 money going to marketing theory is pretty fascinating, since it relies on the assumption that all PS3 releases are not profitable to publishers.


It's not necessarily a "not profitable" issue but a less profitable scenario where it makes more since on some projects to allocate those funds to advertising, promotions and free DLC to increase the profitability of a larger release demographic.

Whereas L4D has huge draws for the stereotypical 360 gamer (FPS, largely a cooperative /multilayer experience) it seems to make sense (Gabe Newell's and other coders disdain for the PS3 acknowledged, but aside).

The classic example of mitigating loss/ reassigning funds is the movie theater: During the week days you would think it would make more sense to close than run matinees. However, if you consider that the refrigerators are running for the food, the HVAC has to run because it takes to long for them to control the temperature because they have to condition such a huge volume of air, rent is paid opened or closed . . . it makes more since to stay open and lose some money versus stay closed and lose a marked amount more.

I am not saying I endorse this business practice but it is a proven method in certain situations; Add the possibility of milking the deep MS teet for an exclusive bonus (to mitigate dev. cost) and it is even more understandable.

Thanks for the mention. Yeah, uploading the box art is strangely addicting, lol. I wonder how many I've uploaded... 300-ish? Ah, it doesn't matter, I'll be uploading more later on today anyways, lol. Thanks for another great CAGcast!

EDIT: Well, 300-ish might have been current at the time, but that certainly isn't the case anymore, lol.

EDIT2: ...I have way too much free time... I think I need some hobbies, lol. Any suggestions?

I've been playing flower this week also, and it really is just amazing. SO relaxing... I've been getting all my friends to try it also, gamers or not. And so far EVERYONE loves it! But I agree, its not a game so much as a “game”. It feels sort of like watching fish…

Anyway, Great Cagcast as always guys, and I love having all 3 of you on. Shipwreck always adds that little something extra and I love it.

And here is hoping for some banjo nuts… and if im lucky the bolts too!

Btw, not nearly enough poop talk this time!

Always good to have the Shipwreck voice added into the CAGcast from time to time, adds a bit more to the table.

And I'm sort of pissed because I wanted to go to the NY Comic-Con, but I found out it was happening 2 days before the event, so next year I should obviously keep up with when the hell it is.

You control the wind in Flower. It suppose that could be considered a character. I loved this game since Skate 2 was so frustrating in parts. I would just alternate playing the two. Noby Noby Boy is worth $5 just to figure out what the heck is going on.

Make a European account to play the Killzone 2 demo. Pretty easy, but still dumb that the demo is not available to USA until after the games release. Sony is completely out of it and it is easy to point out why that are last in the console war.

Thanx Cheapy for your critique of the Street Fighter IV problems.

I've been playing the game and I have to wholeheartedly agree that the music to the game is pretty much shameful and the current state of the online battling is without a doubt a disaster.

I have absolutely no idea how none of the 'major review sites' that I've looked at are calling out the online as being an absolute dud.
No 'rematch', wtf?
No 'proper lobby', wtf?
The saving! What the heck is going on? Why it takes so long and why it isn't simply done 'in the background' I'll never know.
And my biggest gripe. . . NOT BEING ABLE TO PLAY VS. SOMEONE ON YOUR FRIEND'S LIST.

Thanx cheapy, wombat and shipwreck for another great CAGcast!


And yet many of the reviews harp on the fact that the training mode doesn't really teach you play theory...weird they'd all mention that and leave out the online stuff.

Most of the reviews I've read use the "online depends on your connection" cop out.

Cheapy, thanks for the SFIV impressions. it sucks that the online mode is kinda nerfed compared to HD Remix. my copy arrives this Friday, wanna play? :)

Wombat, thanks for showing some Dead Space love.

Shippy, always good to have you on this show. man, 300 GI Joes and mrs. shippy didn't run away? she's awesome! my entertainment room sorta looks like what you were describing. except it's all video game and anime figures. shall i take some geeky photos to share? ;)
