firestorm wasnt in that dc comics movie. it was another guy who was kinda like captin atom and as far as black lightning being a token character and not doing much he created a force field to hold in the radioactive power of the guy in orange while captin atom absorbed it not to mention kicking some ass alongside the other heros on luthors payrole. the movie was alot better than cheapy described it and was loaded with fights and action ( way more than i was expecting) and alot of the jokes between batman and superman were funny.

the show coulda used some shipwreck though.

I heard CheapyD mention that he recently got a Kindle int. I just recently got one as well and figured I'd share a tip. There are a lot of web articles which I never finish because it's too much of a hassle to read them online. Eg the article on Gamasutra about the Last Express (they discussed it some time ago on Idle Thumbs, which was why I looked at it). Converting it and putting it on the Kindle made for a lot more pleasant experience than reading in a browser.

First, get http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/
which is a free (open source) ebook converter for Windows, Linux and Mac. Get the article and save the "print all' version of it and convert with the tool.

So now I'm on the hunt for more good (longer) articles to read, does anyone have any tips on that?

(The Last Express article is at http://www.gamasutra...isiting_an_.php.)

Cheapy, another feature of the Facebook app (although I have no way of verifying it) is that you can view XBL profiles of your facebook friends if they're not on your XBL friends list. So it could be used if you guys wanted to setup CAG game nights easier in the future if you added facebook friends.

Wombat, it was announced that you can share tracks online for Excitebike World Rally. Only 4000 digit friend codes required!

Now that we've seen drunken Wombat on the show, what variations will come next?

PS-> You mentioned before meeting up w/ Him and Tek in NYC, did that happen???

I don't think Wombat should really comment on the number of PC gamers the MW2 shit affects. People on the PC love COD. People on the PC pay money for their hardware and basically what is a more complex experience than consoles FOR an EXPERIENCE they cant get on consoles.

That experience ladies and gentlemen is called dedicated servers, community and mods. Dedicated servers are important because communities have a singular (or many, if a certain community has many) place to go to. That means you basically can play with a group of people you like on a daily basis which wouldnt work with IWnet and simple matchmaking.

How dare Infinity Ward, who started the franchise on the PC, and gave COD4 such robust tools, then spit in our faces. It must be Activision who saw they cant make extra money for Bobby Kotick's plastic surgery and tried to lock down the pc platform to charge for map packs.

It's bullshit and i suggest PC gamers stray far away from it until they fix it. We're not bitching, I'm personally getting it on the PS3, but a console is a console and the PC is a PC, and whats the point of playing on a PC if you get a console style experience.

AND THE GAME IS FUCKING 60 DOLLARS! FOR LESS FEATURES THAN COD4!

Hey Wombat sorry to hear about your grandpa not being well. My mom had hospice at home when she passed away from cancer last year. It's always tough to see a loved one so close to death and not be able to do anything about it.

Since you mentioned the disturbing FatalFarm DuckTales parody video, you should go check out the rest of the TV intros that are on FatalFarm's site. There are a few that are even more... "out there." (for example, the Zoobilee Zoo one)

http://www.fatalfarm.com/tvthemes.html


Thank you! I just had to find out what they were talking about. Man, that video is sure messed up.

Seemed like a less than epic show guys. I would know because I usually listen to each show twice. Your enthusiasm totally died toward the end of this one with the CagBag questions. Next week had better be the super shipwreck spectacular like you mentioned!! Also, I'm still searching for that ducktails video.

Edit: Oh shit I should read the forum before I post next time, thanks mik!

A big thumbs up to Cheapy for admitting he didn't know anything about the removal of dedicated servers for MW2 and then not commenting on it.

There's been a lot of coverage about how no dedicated servers means no mods, but it's a lot more basic than even that. I played about 40 hours of CoD 4 multiplayer on the PC, and most of that time was spent on servers with 20, 30 or 40 other people, with little-to-no lag. The large scale of the battles was a huge part of the fun.

Because MW2 will be using P2P matchmaking, PC gamers who buy it will be stuck with a maximum of 16 players with lag depending on the connection of whoever is hosting the game. Check out what the founder of Infinity Ward had to say about the importance of dedicated servers just before CoD 4 was released:

I was going to suggest exChAnGe as well, pro: CAG Exchange- the word exchange lends itself well to a logo, with the letters CAG inside of it.

I look forward to seeing what Cheapy says about Borderlands. It's a neat game, just started it. I don't find the story compelling, but then again nobody promised it would be. I would like it to have more depth in that respect, even if the jobs are go kill, go fetch.

It's funny how both of you CAGhosts have switched to mostly single player gameplay from the online stuff you guys talked about doing more. How do you think that having kids has affect you guys with respect to your gaming habits?

I can say that I cherish solid non-violent games, although there are few of them that I want to play. I also like 'family' games like 'Nintendo' titles for play with the kids. I hate to foreshadow, but when your kids are around 5, you may just play with your Wii or whatever Nintendo console is around at the time. Nooo!

Powergirl for those who don't know (since gentle gamer's photo is dead).

Live action Powergirl ain't too shabby either.

I had something, but it's too late for me to remember. I'll listen to the show again, and repost later on.

It seems they can't win. When they tell too many personal stories, everyone seems to complain that they need to stick to game news and such.

Yeah, that's true. However, I think the CAGcast is more of just a video game podcast. I see of it more as a show about the lives of two gamers. So you're going to hear stories of events in their lives along with mentions of games they're playing and what-not. Instead, this CAGcast was more like two gamers who feel like acting like game reviewers, giving extended reviews on both Borderlands and Forza 3.

Instead of hearing a 5 minute story about Cheapy doing something funny, followed by a short, sweet review of Forza 3, instead we get a very boring and long review of Forza 3. And I'm pretty sure people that were interested in the game already knew about the rewind feature and the marketplace for other users' cars and such. Hell, I have no interest in the game whatsoever and I already knew about them.

Forgot to mention: Cheapy, your Win 7 Whopper video was mentioned on the Giant Bombcast this week. They mention that they watched you trying to eat it and how disgusting the burger looks. Pretty funny.

So Cheapy, it seems the GB guys know who you are. Say hi to them next time. :)

Hi Gents,

Enjoyed the show, as always.

One topic which annoyed me a bit was Cheapy's Rock Band Beatles DLC rant. Cheapy you were complaining even before you got the game that you didn't think there were enough songs, yet you still bought it. Then in your next breath you're saying you'd pay $60 for a RB game with Tommy in it.

If you make the decision to support these games then you need to suck it up dude, until people vote with their wallets, DLC will remain with us.

Re: The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 server controversy. The PC community only has themselves to blame for this. Because no matter what Infinity Ward has said about the matchmaking experience, the whole setup is so that copies of the game will have to check in with IW's servers and check to see if it was a pirated copy. Everybody's forgotten that this was a huge problem for CoD4. The original post by Robert Bowling, Community Relations Manager, has been taken down but lots of news stories still have the quotes.

From January 2008:
On another PC related note, we pulled some disturbing numbers this past week about the amount of PC players currently playing Multiplayer (which was fantastic). What wasn't fantastic was the percentage of those numbers who were playing on stolen copies of the game on stolen / cracked CD keys of pirated copies (and that was only people playing online)," said Robert.

"[I'm] not sure if I can share the exact numbers or percentage of PC players with you, but I'll check and see; if I can I'll update with them. As the amount of people who pirate PC games is astounding. It blows me away at the amount of people willing to steal games (or anything) simply because it's not physical or it's on the safety of the internet to do.

Unfortunately this affects people who bought legal copies of the game, but so many bad apples spoiled the barrel.

Hey didn't see how many people mentioned it but the audio sync was off, don't you edit the shows together from 2 separate audio files? One recorded locally for each of you? Or do you record the skype stream? Either way I'm guessing Cheapy was about half a second or more ahead on the timeline than Wombat, so Cheapy would start saying something literally as Wombat was finishing a word. This is not from Cheapy wanting to cut Wombat off this is a technical issue, I know it's really nitpicky but if you can recognize the cause that'd be great if you could fix it. Never noticed on any other episodes this bad of the problem.

Also terrible name for CAG trading. Cagslist

Cheapy, there is a reason for the multiple use of certain songs in DJ Hero. Each mix in the game is composed of two separate songs. The debeloper still has to pay licensing fees for each individual song that is used in the game. The entire tracklist is composed of 102 individual songs. If the setlist used each song only once, they would have to pay for almost 200 song licenses for the 93 mixes that are on the game.

When you actually get to playing the game, you will notice that the songs are used in completely different ways during each mix. One song wont sound the same when in two different mixes.

Yes 27" imac with 4850 and i5 Quad-core and you won't need a Windows gaming pc. It's only $2k. ORder now. Ships November. Bootcamp for Windows gaming.

There was something that stuck on me from the show, but I forgot what it what was. Ok now I remember. I like your review of Forza where you said "There's just a ton of sht to do."

I can just imagine Wombat calling a game crap and Cheapie saying there's a ton of sht to do or something like that. Ah well there's got to be a joke or angle in there somewhere to go on about.
