Unrelated but i'm liking CheapyD's Audiboo. Randomly appeared in my iTunes feed. Although I already listened to some from your twitter.

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.

Nice to have the crew back together. Cheapy, I think you took the E3 show complaints too seriously. You mentioned beforehand you wouldn't cover the show. Just ignore them, we don't need the giant boring rant at the beginning of the show. **** the haters.

Great show!

Cheapy, I don't get why people are giving you and Shipwreck such a hard time about the lack of E3 coverage during the show. As far as I'm concerned, you don't "owe" anybody any coverage, since this site is more about bringing people deals rather than breaking news and hands-on coverage. When you do talk about games we listen because we value your opinion, but to me it just seems like E3 is just like any other vacation you might take.*

Hopefully Wombat can make it out to the show next year. I looked for you and Shipwreck on the show floor and didn't see you. I guess my ability to spot tall, baked bald men has diminished over the years. Anyway, thanks for doing the CAGcast (mostly) each week. It's on my short list of must listen shows.

I appreciated the coverage of E3 for what it was from you guys. A lot of sites do comprehensive coverage of every title, but you guys pick the good stuff and give an honest opinion in an entertaining way. Great job!

I've never felt the need to comment on the show, but god damn cheapy, please stop with all the weed talk.

I love the CAGcast (most of the time), but the constant weed talk is driving me insane. It all seems so immature to me, and I can't imagine bragging about it with kids.

Just to let you know Cheapy. I know you think you are the main aspect of the show... but, you are not. It is the dynamic between you and Wombat that makes it good. Without Wombat they show is nothing- vice versa. As you can tell from the previous, Shipwreck and Cheapy show.

You are no more important than Wombat!

P.S. I had a Exhibitor badge, yet I still did a ton of work/interviews. Not all green badges are Best Buy employees...

The original Left 4 Dead was a rippoff at a $60 game. But I bought it since valve has always been good at adding content to a game afterwards. The original game lacked enough content to be a full priced game. So i guess that is why people are kind of mad at valve for pushing out L4D2 which looks like its more of the same.

Yea, I could not imagine buying that game for 60 bucks (I got it for 20 on that halloween sale)... it is a great game, but it is definitely lacking in content. Games are already way to expensive as is...

they completely turned the game around, so thats a 360, also wasn't I talking about Splinter Cell?


* Maybe it was splinter cell, turning the game around would be considered a 180, going the opposite direction of sucking - 180. You don't turn the game around by doing a 360, that would be turning completely around and heading back in the original direction of sucking - 360. I believed they even covered this in a Seinfeld episode.

I was just about to post about this. Kiddvid is right. It's a 180*

Also, I agree with those who say that there's too much weed talk in the last episode. Christ, Cheapy, you really do sound like a teenager when you talk about smoking weed. We're not impressed.

**I do agree with Cheapy, Wombat, and Shipwreck about the beatles game being a rip off, 45 songs thats it and then annouce albums right after launch, FU RB, at least give the same amount of songs like RB1 and RB2, man I will wait till I can get the game used b/c RB will milk this the same as GH.**

Should have renamed the show to the Weedcast for this last one. Cheapy, you smoked a s#*t ton of weed during E3, we got the idea the first time you brought it up in the show. Didn't need it brought up again and again and again.

I wish I could've gone to see the show in person, but Cheapy was right in saying that everything is accessible online. The only things I was interested in was Uncharted 2, Just Cause 2 and Natal, the first two of which I saw online, and Natal on Jimmy Fallon show. Oh, and booth babes...but that's what the Internet was built for. *

As my name suggests, I am a White Sox fan, and blah blah blah makes a good point.......


You know, I am not a big baseball fan, but I know that there is a Red Sox and White Sox team so I can not really tell that you are a White Sox fan from your name, its kind of a toss up.

I do think that its funny that some people are upset with the no in-depth E3 coverage and instead we hear stories about weed and shopping at Macy's. Thats just the equivilant of reading Hustler and Swank for in-depth hard to the core news stories. If cheapassgamer is anyway indebted to their audience it should be consumer price alerts and news (wich they did cover well). Good job pointing out the DLC for Rockband Beatles and laughing about Activision and Natal. This website is here primarly for pricing details of stuff, not current news coverage for games.

It's obvious that Cheapy was very happy about his *weed smoking experience*. I'm curious if Mr. D will use his wealth and power to help legalize marajuana all around the world. What say you Cheapy D?

Cheapy, don't listen to the haterz. The weed talk is typical of the honesty and humour of the CAGcast and it would be a lesser experience if you start editing yourself.

Posted 14 June 2009 - 03:22 PM

Yeah I'd agree, Cheapy made a choice about his personal life and since the CAGcast is very personal expect things like weed and poop stories...hey it's what makes the show the show

I guess you guys can put a warning in the OP?

Cheapy,
It makes me laugh that people don't know what they are getting from you, the CAGcast, and CAG's E3 coverage by now. You said it as plainly as can be last year and again this year. Your honesty and hilarious stories is one of the reasons I have been listening so long. Don't change a thing. *

Sounds like you guys had fun. I'd proably be more like Ship trying to see as much as possible.

A little more weed references than I would like, but otherwise a good show. *

I wasn't quite sure if Cheapie smoked weed at E3 after listening to the podcast. He beat around the bush too much and didn't talk about it enough. Next time just say I smoked weed. And say it more than once. Say it more than 20 times. Try to say it more times than the characters in House of Dead Overkill dropped (the videogame world record number of) f-bombs. Otherwise your audience is left dazed and confused.

Wombat- enough with the jealousy. You are a critical player in the CAGCast. You make the show great. But if you left, there would still be CAG, there would still be a CAGCast. On air, can you please reckon with the fact that you didn't start the website, Cheapy did. And he has give you a great opportunity to discuss one of your passions publicly, one you would have been unlikely to have had otherwise. You are the Jackie Martling of the show. A critical player, and nobody (umm, not me at least) wants to see you leave. But if you left, the show would go on. Yes, you helped start the show, credit is due. From there, you have to have the humility to accept that it's Cheap's coat tails you're riding, and your opportunity. I hope that something good in the gaming industry comes of it for you- again.

And why do you have to call Cheapy out on the friends thing? Seriously, Cheapy is the professional here, not getting pissed about that. I would have been furious that you brought that up on air, even if it rings true.

Enough Wombashing.

Who turns off the CAGCast to turn on 1up (see above post)? I can't listen to any other gaming podcast, if just because the production values suck. A travesty for companies or divisions of companies 10-20x larger than CAG. Not to mention the content is rambling and dull.

I do sometimes get sick of some CAGCast topics. I heard enough about Lobster munching this episode.

It is just that I hear enough about weed from my friends. That is all they talk about/do. I don't particularly like it, or think it is a healthy life style and I hate how people act like it is the greatest thing in the world and never shut up about it. I've lost a lot of friends over that junk and I just don't want to hear it in my podcasts as well. I'm still going to listen - just need to let Cheapy get his E3 Weed extravaganza out of his system first.
