I have a suggestion for the show- I know none of you are PC gamers but could you maybe at least go over some of the PC deals in the weekly deals section of the show? You don't need to include a whole segment for PC gaming like you do for MS or Sony, but to at least point out some of the bigger deals would be great as then the PC gamers would also be able to listen in and learn about deals they may have missed on the forums?

Otherwise great show- actually I've been pretty impressed with the consistency of the shows now, I remember in the past there would be times where almost every other time the show was cancelled/delayed but now it's a lot more regular and that's great!

I'd like to start a fund to hire a guy to go to Wombat's house and smack him in the back of the head next time he starts making annoying noises over the Godaddy ad.

I actually believe that Wombat doing that makes the GoDaddy ad even better. I actually believe he continued doing it this week because people had given it a positive response last week.

Cheapy's been sounding more upbeat these past few shows, like he did when I first started listening.

Great show, little heavy on the wang talk though. Didn't hear if Wombat got sick at PAX, seems to be a common concern at that convention.

Oh Wombat, I love how you sing Herb Alpert over the ads. Please to keep singing such classics.

They used to have "extended demos" back in the day.... it was called Shareware... and it sucked. Great show guys. Keep up the good work. I wish you guys could have a new show every day.

I'm with Cheapy on getting sick of seeing those PAX East hoodie codes on my Twitter stream. Who would want that anyway? It's like wearing a souvenir T-shirt for a concert you didn't go to.

I wanted to hear about all the shit talk about Crecente, he always seems to be very snobby. I don't see what was stopping Wombat, it didn't stop him from talking shit about ifanboy when the guy didn't give him the attention he wanted.

The commercial at the end tickled me. I have a Neo Geo Pocket and never knew you could link the dreamcast to it.

I had one as well and actually linked it to the Dreamcast once. The only game I can remember using this feature was King of the Fighters R2 on the NGPC and the KoF game on the Dreamcast (can't remember which one it was), but the feature was pretty neat for the time.


Another CAGcast down though and it was of course a great one, I don't think I have ever listened to the show and not enjoyed it, I've been listening for years too! I can't believe there are only a handful of shows left until the big #200!

Your show was so awesome. I love Wombat Shipwreck and CheapD! I'm waiting for Just Cause 2 in the mail. CAGcast ROCKS! I downloaded that whole NES DarkSide of the Moon remix. It's great.

Wombat, why tease about the Crecente shit talk? Now I really want to know what people said. And what's the plan for episode 200?

Great show as always.

Also, it's interesting how Wombat repeats jokes from the Giant Bombcast.
ie. The Big Ass Ramp™ reference

I really enjoyed listening to the silly conversation about Penis' in the begging. I just heard the Go Daddy advertisement with Wombat's tune. That was hilarious, keep up the great works guys.

I really hope you guys read some of the messages you received for the April Fool's joke. It was pretty clever. (I don't always sign in when I'm on CAG, and it took me a while before I "found" it (read as: got off my lazy butt and logged in)).

I love how far Wombat has come, too; it seems like just yesterday he was practically begging for games/ industry attention. Now he's hobknobbing with the gaming press at PAX East(well, when he isn't heading to Canada for demos). You know...I think the whole "Xbox Pure" stunt really helped in an odd way...

Plume, your solution to everything is sex. [-(

Hey guys, on the Gamestop lawsuit.

The lawsuit is a mess. It feels like it was written by a lawyer who was having a tough time figuring out how to explain it. It's a class action lawsuit which makes it less heinous and I think they do a reasonable job of making their point, though the "Nature of the Action" is a wreck.

The suit itself really boils down to four things: the box itself, the price and customer trust.
1. The box says something is included, it's not included.
2. The customer trusts GameStop. Trusts that the used game experience is the same as the new, trusts that the clerk would tell them if there was something different.
3. The total price of the game is more than a new game, to get the new game experience.

I'm not sure how on the second point alone they couldn't win, but there's something really powerful in the third point if they realize it. What do GameStop employees say when you bring a new game to the counter? Some variation of "You could get that used for $5 less." You could get THAT [same thing] used for $5 less. That is outright false. I think no matter what GameStop is going to change store policies from here forward, but I think that one sentence would win the class action.

Here's a pdf of the claim from IGN:
http://ps3movies.ign...52/Gamestop.pdf
I'd read it all, or just skip to the "Factual Background" it spells it out pretty clearly.

I wonder how it went down with this guy, to get so ticked off you're gonna sue.
