I don't know if you all have seen these, but I find it funny that youtube won't let cheapy have his video showing the hotel when it allows these ( not work safe ):

Great Episode, guys! I'm glad Cheapy finally saw Indy 4 and can now put it behind him. I remember how I felt when I saw it only a few months ago. I went in knowing little to nothing, and expecting the same (considering the writing), but I still couldn't help feeling as though this movie was more an opportunity squandered than a genuine sequel.

I'm also with Wombat on Braid. In fact, his logic tends to be how I base my decisions on what I will or will not buy from XBLA. If you check my gamertags you will see that I have purchased no XBLA games, mostly because the games I would like to play cost more than I am willing to pay. Not to mention the backlog that I too have, such as unplayed copies of Okami and God of War 2, among others. For my $10-$20, XBLA would have to offer better than what I have seen. I understand Cheapy said that the demo doesn't really show what the game has to offer, but it still feels like a bad investment for me. Money is tight, time is precious, and I'd rather be finally breaking into my copy of Bioshock than paying $15 for a game like Braid or the utterly busted (but I hear finally fixed) Castle Crashers.

XBLA games like Braid at $10 are completely worth it. So I'm sitting at home bored on a rainy Friday night. I could either spend $5 in gas going to the store to buy a game plus the cost of a game, or spend $10 dollars to instantly get a great game like Braid. Hell, its $10 to rent a game from Blockbuster.

I agree with Wombat that XBLA games don't compare to full games on clearance, but in order to get Star Wars:TFU for $15 I would have to get on gamefly, buy it, and wait 4 business days to receive the game. XBLA is for those times when you need something new to play right now.

I'm sad :cry:. I just broke my MP3 players screen today at school so now my podcasting abilities have been hindered. God bless the listen live button on the homepage. Also I disagree with the other posters. For some reason the intro pissed me off.

Mr Simon was there, too, as well as other Germans who lived through the Berlin blockade like Gerhard Kapito.
"After the war, we looked on the Allies as occupiers," he says. "But after that we came to see them as our friends."

Great show, but it seems that Cheapy can't stop throwing that "internet space pimp" title all over every episode in recent weeks. It's definitely funny, but you don't want to sound too full of yourself is all. CAG definitely needs a few more members for you to properly receive that name. Keep up the good work as always.

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. After all, Wombat could get a good look at a T-bone by sticking his head up a bull's ass, but I'd rather take the butcher's word for it.

If Wombat has actually correctly called the RE5 multiplayer content being on the disc, I will be so very, very pissed off. The saddest part is, he's probably right.

Some sources on the internet comment that capcom states it is not on the disc, and it will cost 5 bucks.
Cagcast was good, but in the end did not feel like you guys talked a lot about games. 2 hours flew by, thanks again for the work!

Cheapy, I cannot agree with you more about this whole political obsession with violent video games. I am so sick of soccer mom sally's blaming the video game industry for their craptastic parenting, and the politicians eating this garbage up like a starving fat kid with cake in front of him just to be elected again. This is a complete waste of time and resources as we are in the worst recession the U.S has ever been in, and it just seems like a giant covor up for people who have no idea how they will fix the bigger issues, so instead they hide their failure with meaningless bull.

great show as always guy, keep doing what you do.

Confirmed. Americans do cockney accents when impersonating English people. Ill take this time to be polictically correct and call all Americans to stop using the term 'British'. Britain consists of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. I am English, not British, because I am not Scottish, Welsh or Irish.

Great show last week guys, it always makes me laugh.

Im also enjoying the hilarious Wombat impersonations, they should become come a new staple of the show, even though Jewbeard and British Cosby are hard acts to follow.

I think it is a little surprising to hear wombat say he got the most value out of Fallout 3 this year. The first show after he got it all he could do was complain about how he didn't understand the game, which weapon to use, and how to use the map.

I can completely understand the confusion with the map at first, it took me a little while to understand that they were including which subways you need to go through in the directions, but I am glad to see that Wombat is willing to stick with a game and learn how to enjoy it.

I really like the idea behind Furious Gamer, and while I don't have an iPhone, I hope they make an app for Google Android, so I can utilize it on the go on my G1.

Another great episode Cheapy and Wombat!

I know. But I much prefer to be called English because I was born and live in England. I think Northern Ireland is British. You have taken that diagram from Wikipedia which also says the Northern Irish are Britons. That diagram means nothing as Britons are still so if it is the British Isles or Great Britain with the exemption of the Republic of Ireland. I could get a quote but its full of dastardly links to appendices.

I thought it was a bit funny Cheapy mentioned that the government should raise taxes on cigarettes before putting a tax on mature video games, or something along those lines. And starting April 1st there is a federal tax increase of $6.20 per carton of smokes.

Guys, I love the CAGcast. I listened to about 30 shows before I started visiting the site, even though I heard of the site before I heard of the show. Long story. I visit the site 'cuz of Wombat's "contributions" to the CAGcast. I wanted to say that when guys talked about Braid not being worth $15. I agreed with both of you in a way. I bought it because of all the stellar reviews that game sites gave it. But I don't think it's worth the price of admission. On the otherhand, I haven't come close to finishing it. So maybe I'd like it much more if I had the time or patience to play it all the way through. Until then I wish I had waited to buy it on sale because I haven't played it much to this point anyway.

I think that the problems with the Xbox guide being slow may come down to whether or not your account migrated from an original Xbox or started with the Xbox 360. I have nearly 100 friends on my friends list and my account started on Xbox and I have always seen it slow. I don't know but it just a hypothesis.

Oh, and I do want to win the Halo Map pack. And Wombat is always right and a gaming intellectual genius. Please, make sure this comment doesn't get disqualified, Wombat ;-)

Cheapy, there is one western that is supposed to be on the horizon besides Call of Juarez 2. It's Red Dead Revolver 2, and the short teaser looked good.

Hey Wombat,
I think the problem with indy IV is that we've all grown older. I personally have the same thoughts as you about the new indy compared to the old ones. Little kids today this the new indy is awesome. This is what I'm hearing from my friends kids.

Staying alive in a fridge from atomic blast is the same difference as the ark melting some evil nazis face. Its just that as kids we believed it and thought it was awesome, where as now, surviving a nuclear bomb in a fridge is just stupid. But I bet if we were kids and watched the new one, it would be super cool.

Just my theory anyway.

cheers.
