Im downloading aswell, time to get my fix, been too long!


Ok listening now, first comment: Shipwreck, why does Gerstmann have terrible taste in games? I can understand that you can disagree with him, i do aswell sometimes, but claiming that someone has bad taste is quite juvenile, He problably has different taste from you, that however does not make it bad. I find myself disagreeing with your opinion on games, i still enjoy hearing your thoughts and i don't think your taste is bad, just different, and diversity is great.

I'm not sure why Jeff Gerstmann has terrible taste in games. That is a question only he can answer.

Wombat is a cheater! Fallout 3 doesn't count.

Thanks for the podcast. I like the informal "favorite" game chatter. Very few of us play everything, so it's good to hear people like us.

I will echo Cheapy's sentiments about Bayonetta. Pretty good game, but not a 9 or 10. You can skip the cutscenes, but my problem is that it's not simple to skip them. You have to press 3 buttons to skip them. My main gripes of the game are there's too much stuff on screen and somehow, someway, they made the camera worse than what is in Ninja Gaiden.

Also Cheapy and/or Shipwreck, I present to you a challenge. Play through a single chapter of Bayonetta with a Fight Stick. I guarantee you will be surprised with the results.

And to just to gloat, all Star Coins, all Shiny Stars in NSMBW for me, Shipwreck. Top that!

Gatorade doesn't have that much sugar and G2 has even less.

Wombat- any exercise to go with that diet?

Yay! Show feedback! Hooray!

First things first, congrats on reaching your Childs Play goal yet again, Cheapy and the many CAGS. [edit: words be ganked]

On the DS and PSP mentions... part of me wants to agree with you. I mean DS and PSP were not exactly on par with the bigger consoles, but that doesn't mean they sucked. 2009 had some great titles for both systems. It's just that you HAVE to be paying attention when they drop and with such a great year on the bigger consoles, we really had no chance to check in on the little guys.

And finally, about MAG. I can see why a lot of people hate it. But for me, it's drastically different. This is a PC ass game. Everything about it harkens to titles like Battlefield. It's not going after the MW2 crowd because, quite simply, COD has been a console centric franchise after the second one. MAG's biggest problem, as I see it, is being a PC game put on a console. Console shooters have been holding our hands for so long, a shooter that just kicks you out of a plane with a rifle, a dream, and a mission objective of "kick some ass, soldier" seems generic and plain. But considering the last game we've seen of this type has been Battlefield 2, it's long overdue.

But it's not for everyone. No doubt about that.

This was about as mediocre as a CAG end of the year list could be. That's not a knock against anyone, I know what I'm getting into when I listen to the cagcast at this point.
Some very interesting picks this year from everyone and I definitely appreciate the fact that Cheapy clarified that this wasn't the end all best of list but rather just his favorite games of 2009. I also noticed that Cheapy has pretty big issues with the integrity of game reviewers but maybe this could be a discussion on the next live show.

Wombat, dude, that diet sounds untenable. Instead of complicating things to that degree and denying yourself so many foods, why not just go with the math: eat less, exercise more? I promise that works.

I dropped 55 lbs. last year by simply bringing my daily calorie intake down and walking 40 minutes a day. I didn't deny myself any food that I love--I just made the trade-off. Eat a doughnut and you just lost 400 calories that you could have used on your dinner. Simple. No meat? No sugar? No bread? No fucking way.

Still, best of luck and I hope it works for you, mister.

I thought MUA2 was a million times better than the first one. The original MUA's menus were the worst looking menus ever. I liked MUA2 characters having only 4 skills. It sucked to have to pick and chose 3 skills out of like 8 or 9 in the first one. Plus they replaced the super moves from MUA with the combos in MUA2 which was another vast improvement.

Great CAGcast as usual. I was surprised about some of the 2009 pics but most of them I knew you guys would pick since I've been listening to the CAGcast all year.

Here's to a cheap ass 2010.

Woot!
