Right there with you BlueSwim. I'm one of the two Zune owners in all of St. Louis and I'm always having to defend it. People think if it isn't an IPod it's crap.

You hit the nail on the head. A lot of Zune hate comes from iPod fanboys who probably haven't even used a Zune once. I can understand knocking a crappy product, but the Zune isn't one. It's not bullshit. Bashing the Zune now for being "bullshit" is like bashing the PS3 now because it only has two good games, it's an out-dated general consensus that no longer applies.

CheapyD talking about his hebrew school experiences? Priceless. Tell us more.

I used to ditch and buy candy at The Market Place (ancient convenience store). I had to be tutored for my Bar Mitzvah. I remember when one rabblerouser got in serious trouble for throwing a macaroon at one of the schoolbuses as it was leaving. The driver pulled over and layed into the kid. Those macaroons were like rocks. And they sold cornnuts at break. Yummers.

Wombat, did you ever get your hands on Sacred 2 for a console? Impressions?

BTW, I buy a lot based on your recommendations on the show. I consider you guys 'influential'.

I seriously think Microsoft has been supporting Cheapy in some form, why else would he want to put so much hate on PS3 titles.

Hey Cheapy,

I can TOTALLY relate to your Hebrew School story. I had an eerily similar experience (happened in regular school though). Same scenario, our teacher (music teacher) asked us all to bring in our favorite songs. I was young and stupid and brought in my Walt Disney World official album to play the Enchanted Tiki Room song. Well, as the teacher started going through everyone's tapes (announcing who brought it in before playing) all the songs turned out to be current, popular radio hits. Tape after tape I began to realize what I was going to be in for. To make matters worse, my cassette stood out from all the others because it was bright ORANGE.

Eventually aftear sweating it out my turn came but unlike your Hebrew School teacher, my music teacher played the ENTIRE song while all the other kids sat there laughing at me.

I don't think I've ever told anyone that story before, but it feels good some 20+ years later to finally get it off my chest.

ps - I think you should start a thread for everyone to share their Bar Mitzvah photos starting with you and Wombat... baroook atah adonoi!!!!!!

I seriously think Microsoft has been supporting Cheapy in some form, why else would he want to put so much hate on PS3 titles. In this episode, Cheapy's comments on Killzone 2 only made me think that he has something against the title. Why Cheapy? do you think Killzone 2 should be a major hit ? are you somewhat dissatisfied that the title only made 600K plus copies ?

I still remember you guys were talking about how much fun you guys had when playing KZ2 multi player on game nights. SO why the sudden turn around?


Yeah, the Wii bashing has been a constant on this show. I think hell will freeze over if Cheapy says one good thing about the Wii.

We all have our favorites. This show wouldn't be worth listening to if these guys were smoothed over opinion free lackeys, afraid to disrupt the flow of freebies from the corporate teet.

There are great games on all three consoles. I doubt that either host would disagree. There are just fewer good titles for PS3 and Wii to talk about. I'm sure that a Metacritic roundup could confirm that.

Cheapy doesn't like the Wii because of the same reasons we don't like it, the lack of great games coming out on a consistent basis and the internet on it is total shit. You know he like Xbox Live and doesn't even like to game on PSN so why would he go to something where you need friend codes?

AND NO ianoid, if you were to look at metacritic for exclusives, i think the ps3 would definitely have the upper hand.

I saw this rediculous show called MANswers and they were explaining about the presidents shit being confiscated and shipped back to the US so the enemies can't analyze it and determine certain pharmecusticals or other abnormalities.

I think this story is alot more interesting/cool than Cheapy's bragging over fecies! Eat it Cheapy

Hmm, so we have 629 Xbox 360 games, with 238 with a metacritic of 75 or higher. That's a favorable percentage of 38%.

We have 337 PS3 games, with 150 with a metacritic score of 75 or higher. That's a favorable percentage of 44%.

The Wii has 403 reviews with only 83 over 75. That's a favorable percentage of 20%.

So I guess you're right by percentages, but then with 88 more favorable games to choose from, it's hard to consider the PS3 a hands down winner. I think I prefer a good selection to a better ratio.

Getting down to the exclusives is waaay beyond what I have time to dispute. And the last thing I need is to get at odds with a person who favors one system (colloquially referred to as a fanboy). I have all three systems, I play all three systems, and I like all three systems, except for the Wii. Actually, the PS3 is easily the best piece of hardware of the bunch. Doesn't mean it's right for me as often as the 360 is when I sit down to game.

Just a quick point on the whole stocks issue, I actually think, as an influential pundit on the video game industry, it's your ethical duty to disclose your financial investments that could be a conflict of interest. In other words, your dad is completely off-base in my opinion.

As aside, I founded a CAG Stock Market group that's very active so the whole notion that CAG's are not financially sophisticated is quite false.

I've bought a couple games because you guys pimped them on the show. I bought Saint's Row 2 because Cheapy kept talking about it. I had a lot of fun with it.

Cheapy, you should have gotten your ass kicked for playing such a lame ass song.

Ok Cheapy... So I'm driving to my friends house for our weekly gaming session... listening to the CAGcast. It ends and Glory of Love comes on... so at first I'm thinking "wow... how gay must Cheapy have felt when this started playing in class. The next thing I know, i'm driving on I-287 FUCKING BELTING OUT THE SONG at the top of my lungs. I have to say, I really liked that song and I think it's still a great song... I just think it was probably the wrong song for that situation.

Love the site, love the show,
Chris

LOL Cheapy, thank you for at least humoring me and reading my CAGBag question on the show. I was pleasantly surprised that you picked it up since you already addressed the issue of E3 coverage last show including Wombat's decision to not go. To me this is you listening to your fans even if they have crazy ideas so thanks.

While my dream of a CAGCrew @E3 may be just that a dream I still hope you have a lot of fun at E3. I can appreciate how your time is limited and how hard it is to leave family behind; I went to NY for 2 days leaving my wife and son behind and that was hard enough so I can only imagine what it will be like to be away for a week. Be sure to treat your wife to something nice from LA when you get back, I got some Versace perfume and it did the trick!

You hit the nail on the head. A lot of Zune hate comes from iPod fanboys who probably haven't even used a Zune once. I can understand knocking a crappy product, but the Zune isn't one. It's not bullshit. Bashing the Zune now for being "bullshit" is like bashing the PS3 now because it only has two good games, it's an out-dated general consensus that no longer applies.


Exactly. I also own a Zune and love it. It's the best iPod alternative, and it is insanely durable to boot. I can't tell you how many times I've dropped it with the headphones in and it still works fine. It was also submerged in water for a few seconds one time. Still works perfectly.

I also love my Zune, but the software is terrible. I prefer iTunes in that regard, but I dig the Zune device.

I love "Glory of Love" as well. Cheapy, you are no pussy for liking that song. If that were me, though, I would have brought my first tape that I owned, the cassette single of "On Our Own" by Bobby Brown, from Ghostbusters 2. Now that was a great song.

No new CagCast this week? What's the deal? I know that you say that it's just something that you do in your free time, but the CagCast is really the reason that I come to this site, and I'm sure that I'm not the only one. I participate in the forums a bit, but I think that the real glue that holds everyone here together is the 'cast and the personalities of Cheapy and Wombat. When you slack off this much (seems like every other week we're missing a CagCast), I get disinterested in CAG real quick. I can't be the only one that feels this way...

Just got around to listening to this show last night. Entertaining, as always.

A couple thoughts on what you should do for your E3 coverage:

1. Do a nightly podcast wrapping up the highlights of the day. Doesn't need to be long or properly edited, just 15 minutes or so briefly covering the day. Joystiq did this with their GDC coverage and I thought it worked well, except that they tried to be funny and weren't which kind of ruined it. But the idea is good.

2. You gotta take the Pet Pals steak dinner. That right there has the potential to be the best story of E3 from CAG. Most people come here more for the entertainment than the game news coverage, plenty of sites give games more than enough coverage. But who could do a better steak dinner from Pet Pals story better than CAG? No one.
