And here I was giving up hope for a new Cagcast...

Zelda: Twilight Princess was really good, just not great. Very fun, a solid 7.5-8, but not the worse game ever. However, Cheapy is reacting appropriately to the reviewers' slobbering it with "10/10" reviews. Mario/Metroid games tend to get the 3 point "Nintendo Nostalgia Curve" bump as well.

Archer is fucking hilarious, it's like James Bond with all the drinking and partying and no actual competence. That and "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" are the two funniest shows on the network (although with the other "comedies", that's not that hard to do).

The Wii works as a profit model 'cause it's EVERYONE'S second console. Who on this board DOESN'T have one? It's just a Gamecube with motion controls. MS should have opened the wallet put the aux processor in the Shitbox so the 360 CPU/GPU can focus on high-end graphics. As designed with the CPU drain, you're looking at a flood of games equal to "Kingdom for Keflings" with waggle. You're not having a motion controlled Halo with 30% of the CPU dedicated to tracking hand and dick positions.

Great start on your diet, Wombat!

I absolutely hate checkpoints before unskipable cutscenes. I played through Lost: Via Domus, which had long and boring “previously on Lost” cutscenes, especially since you get them right after you beat an episode while it was still fresh in your head. Having to repeat them if you die during a cheap quicktime or instant kill sequence almost ruined the game for me.

EDIT: Ship, go to the challenge mode in South Park. You can choose from 15 unique characters each with their own stats and powers (they are unlocked as you play through the storyline).

Wombat,

I was listening to the show and am stoked to hear about your diet. It does sound healthy. I'm sure that it will get you down in weight. Then what? Can you stick to that diet forever? Do you want to?

A healthy weight and fitness level requires some form of regular exercise to achieve and maintain.

Besides, its pretty nice to work out a bit every week and be able to eat tasty treats when you feel like it.

Good luck.

Edit: You too, CheapyD.

Hold up, Cheapy. You talk bad about Twilight Princess when you not only didn't finish it, but you didn't play it in your native tongue. Of course you're not going to like it when you barely know what's going on.

Great show guys, Wombat where's my credit for trying to start the beef!

I absolutley agree with shipwreck about the quick looks, they're awsome. I come for them and stay for the other entertaining content such as Endurance run and the podcast!

Also cheapyD, diet tip, i know you hate leaving the apartment so do what wombat's doing and get an exercise bike and just ride it for 45min while you listen to Stern.

My wife was sitting next to me and she disliked it too.

There is good chance that the new apt will have easy (across the street) access to a pool and small gym.

The points was the length of time played and that doesn't change even if you wife was right next to you.



I've learned long ago to disregard Cheapy's opinion on Wii games( actually most games). Do that enabled me to enjoy the podcast much more.

My mediocre comment just comes from the fact that I have begun listening to other audio shows this year, most notably being the stern show. Obviously, cheapy this is better than your podcast and the things that have always bothered me about the show have become more noticeable to me. These include the fact that probable four out of five of wombat's jokes fall flat and end up leading to a ten second pause or when the show's pace is just obviously slowed down by too many unnecessary pauses. These can be charming sometimes but more often than not it's annoying. I know it doesn't really bother you Cheapy and you're happy with the show's quality and so it's not going to change. It doesn't bother me to the point where I refuse to listen because I know what the cagcast is like after listening for so long. Mediocre was definitely too strong a word to describe the quality, so I apologize. Your choices were interesting because they were so different from other mainstream video game news. This doesn't equate to being good though, like Pat Robertson saying Haiti is at fault for the earthquake because they made a deal with the devil. It's interesting but I don't enjoy hearing him say that. Don't read too much into that comparison, it's just the quickest analogy I could think of.


But that one of five, is worth the risk. Nice post though, if you like mediocre comments.

You ingrates. I donate a game from my collection out of the kindness of my heart, and that's the thanks I get!? Eh, who am I kidding, it was the only copy of Lego Rock Band left at the Old Navy Black Friday sale and I have no use for it.

And a note about the whole NBC late night ordeal: ratings for Conan actually do kind of matter for the affiliates, too. Someone on NPR mentioned that the ratings of local morning news shows are affected because viewers tend to watch whatever channel they left it on from the night before, so if someone was watching Letterman before going to bed, they'll be watching the local CBS news channel the next morning.

Of course, despite that, I think it's pretty clear where my loyalties lie in this matter.

Good show guys. Wombat keep up the good work on your weight loss....fatass. :)

I hope they don't make any more Rainbow Six games. The last two have been major disappointments. RSV2 was fun, especially Terrorist Hunt, but the game was so glitchy and buggy that it wasn't worth paying anything more than 20 bucks for. When I bought RSV2 at launch (PS3 version), it was broken for close to a month. The servers were all screwed up and you could not play online, either co-op story, TH, or multiplayer. Essentially the game was worthless during that enitre time because the whole selling point of it were the online modes. No one was buying RSV2 for any other reason. Ubisoft made a bunch of excuses and blamed the gamers, when it was really on their side of things why nothing worked. Bugs from the first RSV (such as the constant sound of gunfire and shooting when no one was actually doing it) were never fixed, and even showed up in RSV2, which weren't fixed either. I refuse to support the Rainbow Six/Ghost Recon games because of Ubisoft's bullshit.

I'm dying for a new Twisted Metal game. I think with PSN it would be amazing. Car combat games are pretty much dead, which is a shame. That's the one genre you really don't see anymore. I'm a huge Twisted Metal fan so I'm hoping we eventually see its return.

I'm looking forward to NBA Jam but I don't think it can live up to the greatness of what the series was back in the day.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is completely one of the scariest kids movies of all time. I refused to watch it in middle school and most of high school. The really kicker was Violet who had to get 'squeezed'.
