I'm getting tired of Wombat giving Shipwreck so many nicknames in one show. It's annoying.

Cheapy and Ship should have a list of nicknames for Wombat on the next show...

I thought I said it on the show, but it wasn't my list, the names came from listeners that follow me on twitter.

CAGcast hit a new low, IMHO. So now you guys have to PSN game share $3.49 games? Seriously douchey move. Critter Crunch was made and self-published by a very small independent studio called Capybara Games. How about supporting small devs?

I felt bad for Shipwreck - Wombat was at his most annoying in this episode and not funny at all. If he were more animated/interested he could just do a better podcast by himself instead of having to get only 5 words in every Cagcast...after all, he is the only one who knows what he is talking about.

In the closing Wombat called ShipWreck: "Day Walker", and you were all confused.... it's from South Park Season 9 Episode 11.
Eric referred to red heads without freckles as Day Walkers.

I'm glad that you guys talked about Blood Bowl. I'm a pretty big fanatic for the board game version of it and have been debating if I wanted to get the new video game. I did hear that the 360 version is ass compared to the PC version. It was released in Europe last year and most people hate the 360 port. Maybe once the PC version drops in price to $20 or so I'll grab it.

Anyway, Wombat didn't really do justice for the description of the game. It is more similar to rugby than American football as play continues until the half is over or a team scores, rather than resetting after every play. I don't think there are a huge number of novels on just Blood Bowl, but the Warhammer universe does have a lot of books written in it.

Also in this version of the video game you can play in either turn based or real time. I have heard that the turn based is the only way to play as the real time is unbalanced. Everything points to this game being one that only fans of the board game will really enjoy it.

Also thanks for the warning on the spoilers for Dark Void, Shitwreck. As much as the game will suck I'll want to like it anyways.

I agree with the Ipad sentiment. Im a mac user and love most of their products but the Ipad was underwhelming. If it was a macbook pro with a tablet screen, I'd be in but I have no need for this abomination. Btw, Wombat's ass is too big to share his chair with Ship unless he sits on his lap. Just kidding, good luck with the diet.

RE: Calorie counting/weight loss iPhone apps


I'm currently using the Livestrong iPhone app in conjunction with the Daily Plate portion of the LiveStrong website.

It allows you to input what you ate and your activity for the day and does a nice breakdown of your daily intake. You get to see the amount of calories, fat, carbs, sugar, protein, etc, that you take in per day. You set a goal and it gives you a calorie target to stay beneath. And just about any food that I can find around here is already in their system so I do not need to actually input the calories/fat/etc manually for each thing I eat.

The bad thing is that the iPhone app doesn't show all the same stuff the website does, it does show how you are doing in terms of your daily calorie goal, and you can input all the same stuff, but it is more like a simplified version of the website. The other negative of the entire system is the max weight loss you can select for your calorie goals is 2 pounds a week (any more loss per week than that they consider unhealthy). Also the fitness options you track are pretty generalized and may not be completely accurate in the amount of calories they say it burns.

The Daily Plate website is free, so that is cool. But if you want to use the iPhone app in conjunction with the site I think the app costs $2.99.

I've been using this system for a little over a week, and I like using it as a food diary. I have to monitor what I am eating for other reasons besides weight loss, but trying to lose weight at the same time. So it may not work for you guys as it does for me, but the website is free to check out. I'm liking it so far just thought I would share.

"Project Shitbox" as a name is pretty eff-in funny. They will probably hit the 50%-60% for 360 owners getting s Shitbox, Problem is the 360 numbers are inflated with failure replacements, so 50% of 360 owners having the Shitbox is probably only 10% of the 360s ever sold.

If Microsoft wants to do something with Far East penetration for the 360, strike a damn deal with Sega (like they should have done in '2000). Only NA and EMEA give a shit about the XBOX.

P.S. - Hi-Def porn is great, it's the closeups that suck. Very few directors have changed their styles from the Betamax/VHS days where you NEEDED to zoom in to see anything. No need to zoom in and see a 42" 1080penis on the screen.

Let me comment about the God of War 3 Collector's Edition comment. Apparently an edition that's 40 bucks more that appeals to fans of the series in a huge way, and is more than just a box is...ridiculous to you?

Oh, but 250 dollars spent on plastic instruments based off the beatles is totally fine right? That's not ridiculous at all! Especially when you have one or more of the plastic guitars, drums and mics lying around.

Great show and everything, but I've been listening to some Stern for the first time in a long time and I realized something.

Cheapy on the Cagcast is very similar to Stern. As far as how they sound, their personalities, even down to the jokes they make are almost uncanny. It's pretty weird, but I suppose Cheapy would take a few keys from Stern's show seeing as how he's a die-hard fan...

Also, Wombat is definitely the Robin of the cast.

Lastly, where does Wombat get off interrupting Boat Crash during his description of Mass Effect 2? Shipwreck is a professional reviewer that's been in the business for at least a few months, he knows where the limit for spoilers are. All he was about to tell us is that the Citadel is much smaller than it was in the first game. OMGWTF SPOILERS ONE AREA IS SMALLER THAN THE OTHER.

BTW. Only jerks eat cereal from bags.

Wombat's constant needling of Shipwreck is getting old. Maybe it's just me, but Wombat's tone seems to reflect some real animosity towards Shipwreck. Is it because Shipwreck's presence diminishes Wombat's role on the CAGcast?

Inglorious Bastards was great. Different type of movie than Pulp Fiction. Almost more a more mature film.

I liked Pulp Fiction, too, but was more impressed than I expected to be by Inglorious Bastards.
