Good call, Cheapy. I have always chosen a console based on which controller is more comfortable. I thought I was the only weirdo that did that.

I've only listened to a couple of CAGcasts but I remember Cheapy telling a story of how he was listening to a Stern podcast and using an ATM and then forgetting to remove his cash (about $900 if I remember correctly). Now he is spending $10,000 to be in studio for a Stern show. Gay for Stern much Cheapy? And maybe the name CheapyD should be changed to RichyD. A real cheapass would have stopped listening to Stern when you had to start paying Sirius to listen to his show.

And finally, a contest involving cursing...way to eliminate us Latter Day Saints from participating.

Just to clarify:
1.) So, there are rules to douchebaggery? I am an adult. I purchased the light saber for the avatar. Therefore I am the douchebag. Fair enough.
2.) I wasn't being flippant. I give my comments a lot of thought and considered the consequences, as I'm doing now.
3.) What? Even I can't figure out how exactly you can interpret what I said as an attack on you as breadwinner for your family. That's fucked up.

You made an assumption that I spend all my money on comics and videogames, that is by definition being flippant.

Your comment about us calling kids douchebags took our comment to an extreme that was never implied or intended. Your comment had the same effect on me. So I guess we are even.

Great fucking show. I really enjoyed hearing about Xbox Live's banning practices, but kind of felt like the guest's hands were tied when it came to the subject of how they gather data. Still, it was a good listen.

Why the Fuck do idiots keep taking shit from our past like Transformers, G.I. Joe and making these shitty ass movies that suck! It's driving me insane. Really, GI Joe could have been a good movie but... nope. Transformers? They were bad ass! Now what? What is next? Turbo Teen? Voltron?(My personal favorite) So where is the My Little Fucking Pony Live action movie? Or the retarded ass CareBears? Where is the damn Smurfs and Snorks live action movie? They could use the little dude from Willow.

If I don't see a live action Get-a-long Gang movie I'm gonna be pissed.

hah, I just got back from vacation last week in Sandusky, OH. We went to Cedar Point on Wednesday and the lines sucked ass!

The water park is pretty small too.


Who goes to Cedar Point to go to the water park? Bah. I havent been there in over 10 years, but I am going next summer. So many new coasters...

Shadow Complex is fucking great. It actual led me to turn my 360 on. I'm surprised it even works since it hasn't been repaired in the past 2 years.

The parts I listened to were great. Thanks for plugging Shadow Complex, looks amazing. My fucking iPod+iTunes doesn't sync with multiple computers. So I tried downloading Songbird to manually add the CAGcast to it. It worked, but whenever I pause it it goes back to the beginning. I'll be able to listen to it when I get back to my home computer. Damnit.

Fuck you Wombat for not doing anything about the messages. Stephen Toulouse isn't a magician.

That fucking asshole with the loud speaker from Microsoft was boring as shit. Getting banned for being an illiterate parodying Shuli's "Shalom Bitches" is funny though. Honestley, what was with the guy from Microsoft's audio equipment? its fucking Microsoft, they should have this whole internet thing down by now.


Oh and in regards to Shipwrecks inquiries about PS3 transfers:

Every time I hear you mention Howard Stern I can't help but think about the episode of Futurama where Fry is standing in Old New York and can finally say what he had always been thinking, "Howard Stern is Over rated!!" Which of course is funny because Billy West (voice of Fry) was a frequent guest on Stern.

I've got to agree with Cheapy regarding games and length. I used to love putting in a ton of hours into a single game. But anymore I look at a game like Fallout 3 and think Fuck, there is a LOT of content there. When I traded my DS Phat for a DSi at Game Crazy (thanks CAG) I got a set of coupons for one free rental a month for a year. I figured I should probably get something short enough that I could finish in just a few days. I've found that I've been having a great time powering through a lot of shorter games I wouldn't have bought otherwise. 6-10 hour games like Gears of War 2, Resident Evil 5, X Men Wolverine and a few others. I still have Lost Odyssey sitting on my shelf with a save sometime during disk two. It's a great game but it's so big and there's so much to it I just haven't had the drive to actually finish it.

Great podcast, guys. I could feel the chemistry between the three of you today, probably due to overall lower levels of stress. CheapyD and Wombat didn't even have any real fucking sigh-worthy complaints. Awesome fucking show.
Fuck.

Great podcast. Though I have to point out that the batman engine you have been raving about the last two podcasts is just the unreal engine. one of the screens when you start up the demo has a huge unreal engine emblem on it. That explains why everyone in the game looks like juiced football players.

Good call on 50 being king of slinging vulgarities while still remaining charming. The only celebrity I think could beat him out is Samuel L. Jackson, but I've never played Afro Samurai, so I'm not sure how much they allow Samuel L. do what he does best. Even "Blood on the Sand" sounds like the title of a Samuel L. Jackson movie.

The law of fucking large numbers! I just read about that in my book on probability and statistics!

Regarding the question of where the price drop of the PS3 will take it: I'm currently playing with some sales numbers going back to 2001 to determine the efficacy of price drops and to build some models for which to map our friend the Triple once the new sales numbers start to hit. I'll post a blog on it eventually.

Shipwreck is a spredsheet whore, right? Maybe he could help or review it if he would like.

Cheapy, there's no Beatles Singstar, you stupid Fuck.

^Contest entry, not an actual comment.
------------------------------------------
Sounds like Microsoft set Wombat up to get shit on by not telling him any of the normal stuff they tell every other Spotlight person.

The Xbox 360 sucks for HDMI people since Microsoft intentionally designed the back of the box poorly so you have to buy the MS cables so they fit properly or rip the plastic case off of the AV cable so it'll fit. Taking out the HD/SD cables is just another attempt to get more money out of people for video cables than before.

I'm not sure why Shipwreck would really care about the GotY edition of LBP or any of the costumes in it since he absolutely hates it, like Cheapy's hatred of MotorStorm.

I don't know if I'm expecting too much of Shadow Complex with all of the hype, but things like absolutely stupid/overly sensitive AI, visual/animation bugs, broken leaderboards, and some bad save point locations. It's a lot of fun, but I kind of expected a bit less of a sloppy experience from the best XBLA game ever.

Good show, though Shipwreck was the bitch for most of the show since it sounded like he could only speak when spoken to.

Cheapy, I don't blame Wombat for zoning out during the damn iPhone segments. I don't have an iPhone, don't plan on getting one, and don't really need another portable system to game on. I end up zoning out too.

That said, the podcast is still pretty fucking entertaining. Nice work with the XBLA moderator guy, that's gotta be a tough line of work.

Cheapy you say there is no such thing as a bad retard. Yet however I beg to differ. While leo Dicrappio is by far the best retard I've seen in a movie. There is a bad actor category too. The winner is Rosie O'Donnell! Check out an older Made for TV called "Riding the Bus with My Sister". There you will see the worst retard act I've ever seen in my life. Granted Rosie already looks retarded by herself so she has that going but well... you have to see it. (Don't ask, my GF was watching before we went to bed when I walked in after playing Mass Effect. Not a good transition.) And yes I had nightmares all night thanks to it.

I have a friend from college who is actually the one who got me into the Xbox and Halo 2 multiplayer. He's the nicest guy, but when he plays Halo he talks shit like you wouldn't believe. He'll single a guy out and yell Fuck you mother fucker i'm going to get you -- and will just go off. Usually he does this to the highest ranked player in the game. He has the skills to back it up, but it's so unlike his normal demeanor I just sit there and laugh.

I'm surprised someone hasn't reported him yet...

I should also note that he's 37 and is an Engineer -- he's a smart guy and has done well for himself. But halo turns him into a punk kid again.

I don't see how Wombat being completely unenthusiastic about iPhone Apps is any different than the two of you being completely unenthusiastic about J-RPGs. Better to keep quiet then attempt to muster some kind of half-hearted, false interest; which is why you guys never talk about J-RPGs on the show.

Great podcast. Ship's mic or voice was too low so it was hard to hear him. It was interesting to hear from someone at Xbox like Stephen T. Anyone here on CAG that we can maybe contact and ask questions?

[entry mode]

I felt bad (yet lol'd) when Shipwreck asked (yet was ignored) "What about me?" when Cheapy mentioned that Wombat would be going along to Howard Stern show. It's always great when Ship's on but it seems like he's treated like shit at times, especially when Wombat makes all these fvcked up comments and just ends up being an asshole to him. I know it's all in good taste and fun, but it really is fvcked up at times.

I can understand why Cheapy was pissed about not receiving a code for Shadow Complex. Now some users were probably thinking:

Spoiler


Well baldy Cheapy here is rightfully pissed.

The reason is simple. Microsoft [Studios] is disrespecting this Internet Spacepimp. It's not about the Gs (this time). It's the fact that he, Cheapy-fvcking-D, did not get something when Wombat... no wait...hell even that Ginger got some while this infamous C-Lister did not. CheapyD is The Shit. He should get whatever he wants.
