Im from Canada and I want to remind to all the CAG listeners who happen to be from Canada to visit the forums to look for deals AND to post what they want or can offer for trades. The Canadian section of the forums seem to a lot less users than how many Canucks follow the weekly podcast...

Any chance of you guys bringing back the live shows?

And now Cheapy knows why the phrase "jumping the shark" has been replaced with "nuking the fridge."
Hey, that's what this podcast should have been called!
No it hasn't. That phrase is retarded, and only a very small minority of internet people actually use it.

After playing the game the Wii controls work really well, especially for grabbing an enemy and throwing them into spikes. I think that game would get boring quick if you were playing in on the 360 or PS3. The Wii interactivity really makes the game more fun. Even though there are times where the game will ask to you violently to shake the controllers you can just lightly shake them and get the same effect. The commentary is absurd and over the top and the music really fits with the game. Ridiculous hip hop songs are redicilous.

And I disagree with the "woman's steak" cause I've had some really great steak that didn't have bones, and they tasted a lot better than some of Wombat's so-called "man's steak"
And I think the lag you guys are getting from the Xbox Experience is probably due to a high number of friends. I don't have that many friends (like 5 or so) on Live, so it would make sense that I'm not lagging.
Password protection lobbies sounds like a great idea.

I had a Nintedo DS lite before and I did not like it so I got a PSP 2000 instead. I got the Daxter Bundle last year and I loved it. I mainly bought it because I wanted a MP3 player and a Portable PlayStation that could play downloaded PSone games from PSN and good ports of PS2 games like GTA, Hot Shots, and God of War. I love it and still use it to this day.
The only problem I had with the PSP was UMD. UMD was both a great and horrible idea. It was able to store a lot of data but you had the problems of movable parts in a portable console, fragile discs, and long load times. I am hoping if Sony releases a new PSP it uses regular Memory Sticks for games instead of UMDs and a secondary slot for a Pro Duo Memory Stick so I can put downloadable games on that (I dont like built in memory). However if Sony makes a new PSP without a UMD drive I would hope PSP 2 would be able to play UMD games by a download service from Sony or a separate UMD drive hooked up by USB.

Great show and keep it up! Can't wait till next week and I'm running to the store now for some Jello Pudding!!!

hollywood for some weird reason has alot riding on him. theyve been trying to push him as a future cross genre star i guess since he lucked out with that holes film but hes not nor will he ever be a god enough actor to be able to fill those kinds of roles properly. thats why when someone says a movie was horrible they should say it swung with monkeys.
both indy 4 and transformers were monumental turds and its impossible to say which is worse.
and dont worry about seeing walle anytime soon. its probably the most formulaic and predictable of pixar films. you know whats going to happen less than halfway through it and though its a good film the "message" within it is obvious and the climax was a letdown.

Seriously though, great show!

And Wombat, I almost always prefer a nice bone in my steak much like you but that doesn't mean that boneless steaks are only for those with a weak stomach. Wombat, you could get a good look at a T-bone by sticking your head up a bull's ass, but I'd rather take the butcher's word for it.

I like the idea of using twitter during the show to ask a question to the cags or their opinion of an outline topic. Just have a answer or two queued while the cohost is ranting. If you guys can pull if off seamless like the cagbag or itunes reviews it will be a great way to add more user interaction to the show.

1- I 'm sure most of handheld owners don't want to play "normal console" games on their system, only the more hardcore gamers, even though I for one really enjoyed them in my DS before I sold it;
2- Some games do allow for podcast listening, like Fighting games, most XBLA Games, Racing games and pretty much any game that requires grinding, either by desing or for achievements. But, I can see how Cheapy wouldn't be very interested in those :p. But yes, for other games, it's hard to pay attention to the show and pay attention to the game;
3- I want to participate in the contest!!
4- I also learned about CAG through the podcast... I was browsing the iTunes podcast library and decided to give you guys a chance. After a few episodes, I was hooked! So much that I decided to lurk the CagForums and finally growed the nerve to start posting on the forums. What a great move on my part if I can say that lol.
That's it for the moment, CAGcast and CAGforeplay in the same week makes for a great week!

I do have a comment about Cheapy's take on the Legends of Wrestlemania demo, though. While at first I didn't enjoy the new mechanics and controls, after a few plays it started to click in. You get a feel of things and how to progress after a while, you learn how to pull off certain chains and moves. Before getting the hang of that, I was getting my ass handed to myself regularly. I understand that the real-time events (button prompts) break the flow of the game a bit. However, I do feel that there is a strong chance that this game could be a blast to play against human opponents. And if you think the character models were too big, I've got three words for you: Legends. Of. Wrestling. THAT game had ricockulous character models.
As for TNA Impact: Yeah, the speed of the game is good. It's a good arcade-styled wrestler. Too bad it lacks character, though. Was still a good snag when I got it for $10.
The Late Shift:
I have a radio show. A real radio show. Listen, won't you?

Good, there was absolutely no good reason to remove those in the first place. I hope you compared your videos to the more vulgar videos on YouTube that still haven't been banned in your complaint letter, right?

I remember when Penny Arcade nearly killed CAG when some deal broke here and they linked to it on the front page, which was back in the days of weak, puny CAG servers.
The Wheelman demo was pretty cool since it's like a mix of Burnout and Stranglehold.
I got the PSP Media Manager for free, so I'm not sure why you guys couldn't do so, too. I haven't used it yet because I download most of my content over RSS feeds.
Why would the PSP use an SD card versus the memory sticks that it's been using so far, especially since you'd be mucking with BC games and content transfers.
Two buttons for House of the Dead: Overkill (B to shoot and A to reload).

Anyways, great show guys! I think wombats theory is right, I visited CAG after listening to a couple podcast's also.
Wombat, great British accent, and I love your alter ego Jew Beard keep bringing him back.
Cheapy, I agree that the mac mini is really cool and i also perfer I-tunes over going out and getting free music online.
Posted 12 March 2009 - 11:33 PM
Well, yeah, there are things to consider. You can always just get it 'the other way' or actually purchase anything left over when you end your subscription. So meh. I mean, not everything I've downloaded I've loved, so I don't have to live with albums I paid full price for that I never want to listen to. And you can get some random stuff that you couldn't get on torrents. Oh No's Oxperiments and Billy Cobham Hi-Five are some random ones I found on Zune.
I think the problem here is that you're not actually buying the music and it's not actually yours (outside of those 10 "free" songs). You're just leasing it until you discontinue your subscription or Microsoft stops the service/store. Once you stop subscribing, you lose all of that music.
$15 a month is basically "paying" for the right to try before you buy, but that ability already exists if you're willing to bend the law.

Good show guys but I'm getting tired of wombat claiming games are pretentious. How can a game feel self important when a game does not have a self?
you mean a game, twice
