I'm confused as to why Wombat thinks not being able to go inside of buildings in Infamous is a big deal. What could you possibly want to do inside of a building that the lack of it makes it not fun?

Infamous sold as well as a game without much hype can do, which is only worse than four other games in May on an off year for sales. Killzone 2's US sales I can see some disappointment in since it was hyped greatly for four years or so.

Good show.


well, Wombat had a point about Zeke's rooftop home. that doesn't make much sense. :)

Hey Wombat I'm a black listener and I'm still here. Maybe if CheapyD should start an ad campaign to attract more black listeners.

Hi Cheapy and Wombat, loved the show. Just had a correction for you guys. The Black College Football experience would not have had black athletes having sex with white women. This is because there are very few if any white women that attend historically black colleges. I graduated from a black college and found that the white kickers had the better experience. Why? because they were able to take advantage of some of the most delicious black booty that I had ever seen. You should have seen these guys. Both of them just happy as larks like they had hit the jackpot. As a result, the other football players actually had to go across town to other campuses in order to get their fill of white women. Why stay on campus. Granted you get all the booty you wanted but it did come with the price of high drama. Anyways, keep up the great work guys.

Black is a color.

Great show.

You guys seriously doubted that Wombat was jealous of CheapyD when you read my question from the last show. Without having the inclination to create a cogent arguement by listening to the show again, I can only give you the kind of arguement that I give my wife. That is just my impression. Wombat often (although not during the latest show) seems to want to bring Cheapy down a notch by pointing out his flaws as an internet space pimp (hate the game not the playa), as a host, and as an operator of a web empire. Whether it's point out that he doesn't provide good E3 coverage, or whether Wombat is pointing out that Cheapy didn't use the word 'friend' to describe his offer to fly out Ship or Wombat.

Listeners seem way too sensitive about any use of the word black, and far too willing to label someone a racist. Calling someone a racist is very insulting. It's hardly worth defending yourself.

I am a jew!

And I do really enjoy the podcast. I commute a lot and this is pretty much my #1 podcast. Almost everything else I listen to routinely is an NPR podcast (Marketplace, Fresh Air, This American Life). I wish there were a few more podcasts in the tech/gaming sector that were as good as the Cagcast, but usually they just have snorting sniffling nasal nerds rambling on a soapbox without concern for entertainment. Buzz Out Loud is ok, I guess. I think that Cheapy's actual interest in radio (that is, being a Stern fan) is a boon.

Just finished watching the "Vice Guide to North Korea". Very funny and fucked up at the same time. Thanks for the recomendation Cheapy. Any other documentaries you would recomend?

I finished watching a documentary called "Frontrunners" recently on Netflix instant watch. It's about an election at a prestigious highschool in NewYork City. It was really good and I would recomend it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the "Vice Guide to North Korea" as well. I would recommend checking out the other videos of that series, check out the Pakistan one and the Shanghai one as well (featuring David Cross!)

I dont know what people are bitching about , i dont know why people cant let cheapy have a weekend brake . I know this is a gameing website but everyone needs a brake or two from work , e3 is his brake to get away and smoke some weed , thats kool with me .

And the whole wombat thing about him thinking he is so good for the show , i think if either of them wasnt on the show that it wouldnt be a hit like it is now , i like to listen in for there personality and they both feed off of each other.

Anyways awesome show guys i hope when you both are old and cant talk anymore that you both would let your kids take over the show.

I'm amazed there are people out there who never drink alcohol, or smoke cigarettes. I mean, that would be the only way you could really speak from your pedestals about the evils of marijuana without being a complete hypocrite. It's a shame people only see marijuana users as your stereotypical stoner, sitting around all day ranting about how awesome pot is.

Most of us have jobs, lives, and families to support as well. Have you ever come home after a hard day at work and cracked open a beer to wind down? Replace that beer with a joint and all of a sudden it's wrong. Some people sicken me.

Halo 3 is 39.99

LBP & Fable 2 were released around the same and were both big exclusive holiday titles, from a retail standpoint I would say the comparison is quite valid.

What game has more paid content Gears 2, Fable or LBP?


Yes but Halo 3 has been out since September of 2007, is it not also valid to point out that this should be a Platinum Hits by now? Same with Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare, why is this game still retailing for $10 less than Call of Duty 5? Its because they are big blockbuster games and sell well. X-Box is known for shooters like Halo, Gears of War and that is why those games are still expensive. Platformers and RPG's do not appeal to the 360 demographic core audience like shooters do. That is why with platformers and RPG's they cut the price to move more units and hope the consumer takes a chance on the franchise.

Now I admit that Sony is taking longer for them to come out with Greatest Hits, though you guys are leaving out the biggest offender here, its not Sony nor Microsoft its NINTENDO!! New Super Mario Brothers for the DS that came out on 05/06 still retails for $34.99. Super Mario Brothers Galaxy that came out in late 2007 still retails for $49.99 as does Mario Party 8, Metroid Prime 3 and Pokemon Battle Revolution that came out in 2007 as well. At least Sony has a Greatest Hits for PS3 and PSP. Where is the "Players Choice" for the Wii and DS?

This was a great cagcast with the hilarious doug willams game joke. As for Cheapy, you should just scrub of your shoulder with the people hating on you for talking weed on cag 162. I bet that they are just jealous that they don't have a big bag of weed of their own.
Keep up the good work.

:raises hand: I did buy a pack of wine coolers by accident (which my ex-girlfriend assures me was hilarious) but still aside from that never bothered with it. I have friends that drink and a few that smoke(both). Long as I don't have to breath the stuff I don't particularly care. Until the laws change there's still a very legal difference between a beer and a joint. I'm not sure what I've stolen in my life (I'm sure maybe something sometime) but if I spent 60% of the show talking about how on vacation from work I hung out with some of my old college buddies and ripped off a mom and pop game store for some 64 carts for kicks I wouldn't care but I would fully expect at least SOME backlash.

dude don't bother i spent like 45 minutes going thru links in that forum trying to figure it out. all evidence pointed to her being one of those underage non-nude models. and then i found myself checking the website and finding nude previews and it was just a mental mess.

Hey there Cheapy and the ever-magnificent Wombat,

After listening to the latest CAGcast it seemed as though there were a lot of people complaining about your "weed talk". I don't understand why people get so worked up over something so insignificant. As a fellow stoner and gamer, I feel that someone should tell you not to let these people hold your thoughts back. It's your show and you dictate the content that is discussed. Like you said, half the show is about poop. People should get off their high horses and stop acting so offended over something which you hardly spend any time talking about. You are an adult which means that you are allowed to make your own choices. I wonder if these people would be as upset if you were telling stories about how you had been drunk?

Also, if I could recommend a documentary avaliable on Netflix, The Union: The Business Behind Getting High is both entertaining and informative. It has a fairly biased approach to the subject matter, but it dispells a lot of misconceptions about marijuana.

Except..you know.. your example isn't a victimless crime. Even as a staunch non-smoker, I can recognize that there is no possible way to harm others if you're hanging out by yourself in a hotel room smoking weed.


Great show guys. I agree with a previous poster that this episode was back on track after a few semi-miss shows for me. I thought the BCE running joke was pretty funny as well.

In addition, I recall there being some mention/complaint of the iPhone camera during the show (if I'm getting my podcasts mixed up, excuse me). An awesome solution for that is the app Darkroom. Instead of snapping a photo when you hit the shutter button, it will wait until the camera is still to capture a photo. Haven't had a blurry picture since I've gotten it. Its free, btw.

Dammit Cheapy, between you and the guys on the Giant Bombcast, I finally broke and paid full price for Red Faction. It's the first time I've paid full price for a game in over a year.

I do have to say though that it is an insane amount of fun!

another great show guys, I think you guys just talked me into buying Red Faction, the last game I remember both of you gushing about at the same time was Rainbow six Vegas 2, which I promptly went out and bought on your suggestion and loved every minute of. Keep up the good work!

Hey Cheapy and Wombat,

I'm probably the only black person still listening to your show, but I just wanted to say I don't think you hate black people. I do think your like a lot of white (not all) males who can be clueless and insensitive sometimes just to make a joke.

Like on the last show when you thought it was funny to make fun of the game, The Black College Football Experience, why you thought it was funny, I don't know, you where just being a clueless asshole.

I also listened to the show when you asked Wombat, was the woman black who asked him to buy her a fish sandwich. Why you asked that question, I don't know, you were just being an insensitive asshole.

That being said, I do like how you say what's on your mind without censoring yourself to much. You sound like a prick sometimes, but that's okay, that's why people tune in.

I will continue listening to your show because I think you and Wombat are funny and very entertaining.:applause: Unless the show starts to become like your idols show, Howard Stern.:bomb: That's when I will say goodbye.

Thanks Slick62

P.S. I love Red Fraction Guerrilla!

Great show guys..I don't get the E3 criticism...boring by the numbers reciting of facts is why I stopped listening to every other video game podcast. Well, that plus I got tired of all of them telling me why LBP was going to change the world. :)
