I really enjoyed CheapyD's comments about Reggie and the used games.
Also, great picture with Tai and your games! I can already tell he'll be one happy kid... if he enjoys games that is :p. I wish my dad were into computers and games.
Anyway, keep up the good work, I can't wait for next week's show! Hopefully we'll have a new CAGForeplay to keep us going!

I picked this up for $20 at Micro Center and would easily have enjoyed it even at full price. The fun factor is just ridiculously high. Buying new guns, H2H counter-kills and off-color insults has upped the replayability. I have played through on single player once and CO-OP twice now. I am about to play through on hard, and look forward to trying to get all the "Club" style points-based medals.
This is one of the most under-appreciated games thus far. It's fantastic. If you like Dark Sector (like I did) you're gonna love this.
Even someone who only marginally appreciates hip-hop, it's culture, and verve (like myself) will enjoy the game and it's music.
I can't say enough good things about this game.
My Trade list:
Going dark on the internet for two weeks during move.

First Cheapy, now Wombat. I can't help but notice when you guys say "waiting on line" when you mean "waiting in line" for something. Is this a New York colloquialism, like the pronunciation of "Mario"?
ha i noticed this too.
its like sometimes they are speaking a different language.

Specifically when the talk turned to Downloadable games and how its more so about selecting the best place to spend your money and getting the most for your dollar(s) because I know I tend to look into things before I go tossing money into them.
Then later Wombat was talking about the follow the bullet DLC that let you mess around with the footage for the killzone 2 commercial. And the first thing that popped into my head was that does sound cool.
Then later when Cheepy was talking about netflix and their possible desire for an all streaming future, The second thing that popped into my head was an article that I ran across.
http://www.businessw... temp_top story
That covered Time warrner cables plans to limit users bandwidth and charge them overage fees much like going over your cellphone minutes for going over your allotted bandwidth. That from the sounds of it is going to be going into a testing phase in the not too distant future and the looming threat that other ISPs could follow suit.
With things leaning towards an all digital DLC/Streaming future how do you think a potential move like this on the part of the ISP(s) is going to impact for all intents and purposes Everything. When you end up Thinking twice because Streaming that movie over netflix, Purchasing a digital copy of a game (that can easily run upwards of 1gb by itself) or heck even that free game DLC not to mention that 100Mb to 1Gb game demo is going to push you over your bandwidth limit and your going to get stuck with a bandwidth overage bill ?
I tossed a bandwidth monitor on my system just out of curiosity and you would be surprised how fast seemingly small stuff adds up. Just watching some streaming online video from Hulu was running me on average about 150megs an episode. Which still doesn't sound like much until you look at their proposed bandwidth ranges from a mighty 5GB all the way to a awe inspiring 40gb..............
I know if my ISP tried something like that would firstly push me to change ISPs faster than you can say and if it ended up being something that became unavoidable would dissuade me from digital downloads, streaming video and stop game demos dead in their tracks.
Anyhow I would like to hear your thoughts on the subject.

Wombat should've ordered a fish sandwich for himself. Then he could've turned to the woman and said "I got the last one, sucka!"

Also for Dark Sector, I bought the game when it came out and ended up trading it in since I beat it fairly quickly. I kind of want to buy it again since you came get it for like 10 bucks.
