Great job with the Cheapy, Wombat, and Ship dynamic. It adds a bunch to the show, plus it helps since there is pretty much no more CAG Foreplay. I miss that show!

Good show, Shipwreck is a great addition as Cheapy and Wombat clearly dislike each other too much these days, the show has a better atmosphere with a guy in the middle.

Question to Cheapy: What are you going to do when digital distribution renders cheapassgamer.com useless in 5-10 years? Or do you think that will never happen?

Great show this week guys. I don't know what's sadder, the fact that the Japanese version has that cover art, or the fact that if the U.S. version had it, I'd be 10x more likely to buy it...

Really enjoyed the show, hearing about Demon Souls is pretty cool. I too play games for fun, and if they are that frustrating, I won't go near it, maybe watch a video on youtube or something to either laugh or marvel. The south park tower defense game really isn't that bad, better than I thought it would be.

Loved the show! I'm like Cheapy in that if I'm really frustrated with a game, I'll just turn it off and not play it again. I play to have fun, not get nerd rage!

Awesome show guys as always! Especially the ones with Shipwreck

CheapyD: There is a documentary about that book you mentioned. Under and Alone it was called and it's on Youtube right here:


It's awesome!!!! I saw it on TV a few weeks ago. Pretty damn interesting.

Wombat I love that your daughter is going to be an Ewok! We saw that costume in a cataglog and joked about dressing our 2 year old up in it. But seeing as she's already 2, I figured she'd want more input into what she's going to be, so she'll be dressing as a kitty instead. Much more likely to convince her to wear a kitty costume for a day.

I think you guys may have scared me away from demon souls too.

Another great episode.

I hate to give Wombat anything to further inflate his ego, but, as a child of the 80s, I'm still laughing a day later about the "100 men or more" comment on the review copies for whatever that game was.

And there is a movie in the works. I'm listening to the podcast now and the book sounds really interesting. I already reserved a copy at my library (I'm also a cheap ass reader). I really enjoyed Hunter S. Thompson's Hell's Angels book. It's a must read if you're interested in biker gangs or just like really interesting journalism.

Now, talking about companies re-releasing games with extra features unavailable to owners for the original release, it sucks. Of course with Fallout 3, you can add all the content via DLC. Some games require you to buy the new retail release to get everything, which is pretty crappy. In an age where it's easy to update products, these game companies should make that an option. The reason there's a new special edition coming out with extra content is because people bought it early on. I understand why they want to release a new edition with bonuses to lure in more customers, but there should be a $10 or $20 download for all the people who made that release possible.

Of course I don't do much online gaming anymore. I used to, but now I play more for the single player experience. As a result, I don't buy anything at launch. I generally wait awhile. This gives me the ability to wait for a nice price drop or a special re-release that includes more content at a lower price.

Awesome podcast as usual. Shipwreck should be a regular.

Also, I thought MUA2 was fun, but not worth playing through again. I put Demon Souls on my Gamefly list to see how ridiculous the difficulty is based on Shipwreck's impressions. Keep up the good work guys.

I would love a copy of Badman for the PSP. The demo was fun but I can't bring myself to spend the cash for the full version. I am taking the Cheap Ass lifestyle to heart as I try and pay off my debt.

Agreed, Ship should be a regular, but only if he speaks like the last 2 episodes. Otherwise, sorry Ship, I'd rather have you pumping out the awesome reviews!
The most difficult game of all is life: 1up, no pause, no save-feature, no strategy guide. Just pray you can get someone to play co-op.

Regarding the PSPGo, I'd like to see online sales for the downloadable codes for games. Whether that's in the form of a "card" that's actually mailed to you (like the 1600 MS points card, for example) or sent directly to you after purchase confirmation like Amazon's Xbox Live online codes selection.

I'd love to be able to get deals on these downloadable PSP games (like the TRU B2G1 free deal) without having to buy the actual UMD version. Anybody know of places selling PSPGo (Code Cards or otherwise) games?

Hey good job this time guys. It seems like you talk about video games much more when Shipwreck is on the show. Perhaps he is a good influence.

The philosophical gamer in me wants to disagree that a game that is too hard is necessarily "not fun." But I usually stay away from games that are too hard. Also, I was definitely on Cheapy's side during the RE5 unlock code controversy. Capcom is trying to squeeze money out of fans but the developer's seem genuinely interested in making games that people want to buy.

I agree with Shipwreck on the Fallout 3 discussion. I was so hype for Fallout 3 but delayed purchasing b/c I knew a GOTY edition was pending. I'm very happy I waited and as soon as my Best Buy Reward Zone points hit for my cpu, I'm going to pick it up. That or Magna Carta II. :)

I, too, enjoyed Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. I thought the game, while missing something from the original, is still entertaining in its own right. I beat both games and just finished game on Legendary. I still prefer MUA over MUA2.

Great show yet again guys. Ship definitely adds some personality to the show and should definitely be on more often.

I've also been looking for the Pinball Hall of Fame game in a few GameStops around me and none of them have it. I guess you guys persuaded a lot of people!

Great show again guys!

Cheapy - I think the handle from the E3 2005 Microsoft keynote you've been alluding to was 'VelocityGirl'. I'd say J Allard got it half right though - while paid user-created content hasn't come of age yet, smaller casual downloadable titles (XBLA, PSN, etc) are big business.

Props to Wombat for the Toto references - as a child of the '80s they gave me a big goofy grin.

I picked up a PSPgo (had a number of justifications) and have been enjoying it. The only downside I can complain about is how easy it is to buy games for it.

Definitely looking to get my hands on Demon's Souls too!

As usual, a good job well done on the show. On the topic of the Sarah Palin autographed Xbox console, I ask you Cheapy, Wombat and I am pretty sure Shipwreck will not answer this question, but how much do you think a box of Sarah Palin autographed Tampons would go for on Ebay?

Cheapy: You nailed most of what's great about having Shipwreck on the show - he's certainly knowledgeable about games, but he's also enthusiastic about gaming. Obviously you and Wombat like games, but shipwreck seems to be able to go into just about any genre of game with an open mind and review it without any pre-existing bias. That's just my observation.

Also, any guy who gets his wife to play games with him is doing something right. Mine is much more interested in burning through my credit after I trade games into amazon than she is in anything else to do with gaming.
