dear cagcasters,

the chemistry between you two seems to be on a steady decline. I've noticed it in the past few episodes, but never really saw it necessary to post about it. But in a lot of the segments its either Cheapy talking or Wombat talking. The back and forth is almost non existent. its almost as if im listening to two separate podcasts at the same time. For example, whenever Cheapy does the iphone game segment, its just him talking, and Wombats mic might as well be off. I understand that it might be difficult to talk about a game that you haven't played or even heard of, but when you're making comparisons, it'd be nice for Wombat to chime in or ask questions here or there.
And i think its weird that Wombat has his own section. its almost as if the cagcast is just creating this divide within itself. Cheapy seems to be a little better at adding things, but for most of the time it seems as if the two of you aren't really talking to each other, you're just reading news stories...

sorry this was kind of long, and im not meaning to come off as a dick, just trying to throw out some constructive criticisms. still love the cast and listen to it every week.

If someone buys me an Android phone, I'll make an Android version. ;)

Heh, sorry but I don't think I can help you with that part. (I only get phones for personal/professional use at work.)

But if there is anyone wanting an app for Android I could make it. I already do Android development at home and at work so I'm all set with tools and licenses.

Good episode, but I don't think I've heard the word taint used that many times in an hour and a half XD

Cheapy you should sell your underwear on those adult fetish sites. I am sure you could easily get your money back on them, especially since they have been worn lol.

Cheapy, Wombat, I just read the news about the exclusive HOME Batcave you get if you purchase Batman: Arkham Asylum or the PS3. I know it is something you will likely never use, but might be something you would want to have to explore or show off to friends (specially Wombat), does that change your decision on whether you might end up getting the game for PS3 or Xbox360?

Cheapy, if you use "Cheap App Gamer" as the app name, can i get some credit? i was the first to post that suggestion in your thread. DesertEagleXIX is my witness! :)

btw, Wombat's rant about the Star Wars prequels was hilarious! "the force ain't fucking with you!" LOL

OMG, i remember the Animal Olympics cartoon too! i watched the Cantonese dub when i was a kid, hahaha.

for the love of all things holy can someone please hook me up with a MP3 of the theme from "Electric Blue?" I like CheapyD have been looking for that "song" for years. It was a very formidable part of my "growing" years. Anyway, hearing it on the Cagcast brought a "sticky, clear" tear to my eye......from laughter!

Wombat - concerning avatar marketplace on Xbox Live...

Yes, it is ridiculous that they are offering avatar clothing and accessories for sales, and at high prices too. But, I don't understand why you are so surprised by this. This business model has been going on for years in the MMO and other online community games. Consider Gundam, which requires you to use "gold" to buy accessories for your tank/robot, gold that you accrue by winning 4,000 battles or by purchasing it with real dollars. Or how about Club Penguin, one of the biggest online communities where kids and tweens gladly fork over their parents money so that their penguin avatars are wearing sunglasses or funky hats.

Again, I agree that nickel and dimeing us is not cool, but you're not necessarily the target market for this strategy anyway. Plenty of teens are glad to dish out the dough for this stuff. Complain about it all you want, but don't act surprised or confused by this business practice. Plenty of evidence to justify it's prevalence.

Wombat I agree with you about the Star Wars prequels, the way that the force is explained in them...

At any rate, great show. And CheapyD it would appear that x2k-one has a blog you should read about your "CheapyD promise:" http://www.cheapassg...blog.php?b=9999

Regarding Sony's Avatar rewards for Home, there are games that support this such as Street Fighter 4, Resident Evil 5 and Namco Arcade. The new Batman game will 'reward' you with the Batcave just by having the game. In addition just about every mini game in Home rewards the users with items and clothing.

Also the sales for Home items seem to be selling very well. Some of the pre-order costumes can sell on ebay for > $60. (link: http://playstationli...e-heat-on-ebay/ )

Kind of makes the $5 lightsaber look cheap in comparison.

Pepsi Shiso is cool. It has a light minty taste. My GF said it tastes like dishwashing detergent though.

Wombat's Star Wars rant is 100% accurate and 100% hoolarious! When he went off on the midichlorian count and dropped the f-bomb I was dying.

And that Electric Blue theme song has been in my head all day long. It's so awful that it's good.

No no no, you misunderstood. He meant KOALAS.

I love it when the shows are about 90 minutes long. Much longer than that and you guys seem to get so tired you get boring.

I don't know what was more disturbing at the beginning of the show...hearing about CheapyD's underwear or the number of Harry Potter references..

I can't believe Wombat's Star Wars rant.

Lucas ruined his childhood by explaining the force in grester detail.
How old was he when he saw SW? Wasn't he born in '77?

When Obi-Wan tells Luke 'May the force be with you'. I'm pretty sure he meant Luke, not everyone .
He didn't say 'The force shall be with you, and anyone who wants to be a Jedi'.

It's too bad he's the goto guy for Star Wars and comics, because I disagree with his opinion on both, alot.

I just don't have an internet soapbox to stand on.
