Ship and Wombat you know if you are buying an xbox these days, you can always check the Manufacturing date, anything after the middle of 2003 won't have the Thompson drive. Overall the show was entertaining, nice work guys.

I Like CheapyD's long ass stories. It adds all the more feel that it's a different podcast from everyone else. No offense to Wombat and Shipwreck, but the show was too slow paced and took itself more seriously then it should compared to listening to Cheapy and Wombat banter back and forth at each other.

Good show; not enough racism, hate, sexism and alike though. I guess no Cheapy results in that.

Wombat did you really get a code from Capcom for the Resident Evil 5 DLC? I would not of thought after you've burnt Capcom on the CAG Cast over the last couple of shows.. well actually Cheapy has, you said nice things about Res 5. Maybe they done it to piss cheapy off even more :lol:

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.

I was just thinking my CAGCast needed more Shipwreck. Great show guys, you could talk about food the whole time and I'd be happy ;)

I too like Cheapy's long ass stories though, it's why I listen to him. I don't really agree with his taste in games and usually he doesn't know what he's talking about but damn he's entertaining.

If I wants to know about some games, I'll always listen to Shipwreck first - he knows what's up.

Nice show guys, thank you for providing it for us!

I'd like to make a few observations though, so we can get better shows in the future ;) :

1- I don't really think it helps the show when you say "this one will be terrible". It kind puts me in a bad mood for the rest of the show, maybe I'm not the only one;

2- To me, a successful podcast works like this: Host A present topic, host B comment, host A replies, maybe host A or B say something funny. I think that in the CAGcast, Host A is Cheapy, Host B is Wombat, which is great. Some for CagForeplay: Host A is Mr Ship, Host B is Mrs. Ship. I think Host B needs to be a little more contraversial or funny to work, so, in the CAGForecast show like it is now, Wombat is host A and Mr. Ship is host B, and the show doesn't flow so well. Maybe you guys should flip positions next time!

3- We need more Mrs. Shipwreck... in any show, I don't care! Her voice just make me feel calm lol.

Well, that's what I have to say about this show, some interesting points made by both. Looking forward for CagCast, CagForeplay and even CagForecast!

Wombat should not be allowed to do any other podcast except for the Cagcast. I hate it when he is away from Cheapy and acts like a Podcasting Princess. Wombat is and has always been the CagCast whipping boy and thats where he belongs. Cheapy - put this marsupial in his place!

How old is Mrs. Shipwreck? When they talked about having kids they made it sound like she was really alot younger than Ship.

I am not putting down Skyline nor Gold Star. I mean every time I visit Cinci, I have to eat at either establishment for every meal, at least.

But the best place for Greek-style chili is Acropolis Chili on Calhoun St. Try it.

Oh that age gap is nothing. I thought it was a little bigger.

Happy Birthday for Monday too!

I enjoyed the show. Sure, it wasn't a normal CAGCast, but it was still entertaining to listen to and helped me get through a BORING day at work. I personally don't miss the poop stories. ;)

I didn't see it mentioned here and I guess it doesn't matter that much, but Peggle DS has had a price drop to $20. At $30 it wasn't worth it, but for $20, I'm probably going to try to find it so that when I'm on travel I can have some nice mindless entertainment. Travel and bed. Sometimes, when I'm trying to fall asleep, I want to play something that requires no real brain power.

Do you know if there is a difference between the DS version and the iPod version? I think I paid $5 for the iPod version and love it, but even $20 (as opposed to $30) for the same thing on the DS seems extremely pricey (especially since I don't carry my DS everywhere but I always have my iPod with me.) Are there more levels? Does the touch screen add an exciting new level of play?

The DS version includes both Peggle and the sequel Peggle Nights along with some DS exclusive levels, so $20 is not too bad of a price for it.

Thanks for the show. It did seem you guys were exhausted as the energy level was low. I appreciate wombat and shipwrecks efforts to putting out material when cheapy isn't able to participate. Cheapy's long ass stories are a key to the enjoyment of the CagCast.

As ship said, the DS version has Peggle, Peggle Nights, as well as some DS-exclusive boards, including a couple that use both screens.

I have the iPod version, too, though it drains my battery so I don't play it terribly often. I think the DS version is good, but it really depends on when you'd play. Me, I anticipate playing while on travel (and I'm doing a lot of that right now for work) and I have been playing while trying to unwind right before bed.

My copy of Peggle DS also came with a survey thingie that if you do it, you can get Bejeweled to download to your PC for free. Not that it's that great a perk, but a nice little throw-in.

I posted these in the DSiShop thread, but they're probably the three most interesting DSi Art Style games in Japan so far. Ship mentioned that he enjoyed Intelligent Qube, and Nalaku looks like a similar concept. There's also Art Style: PiCOPiCT, which is like a combination of Tetris and Picross.

http://nintendo.joys...iware-releases/
Nintendo of Europe revealed their April-June Wiiware and DSiWare lineup, and if the US goes the same route, then the next Art-Style game should be Art Style: PiCOPiCT. It's essentially Tetris combined with Picross, NES characters, and remixed NES music from chiptune artist YMCK.


Two more Art Style games, released in Japan but not announced yet for overseas, to look out for are...
Art Style: Nalaku
One day you're the most important guy who ever lived
It reminds me of Intelligent Qube, for the PSOne. That was a fun game, and this one looks good too.

Art Style: Hacolife
Next day you're some schmo working in a box factory
"I heard that."
Nice theme song.

Free is free, thanks, I'm pondering this.

Thanks BTW to you too Ship for the info and FYI, since I just listened to Foreplay #13 (Merry Bioshock Day to One and All) I've added Car Battler Joe to my Goozex list, it sounds really interesting.
