I'm waiting on a youtube video where Cheapy tosses his wet gym panties at a random person.

great show as usual.

wouldnt an easy solution to the new game DLC bonus issue be to just put a sticker advertising it on the outside of the plastic wrapper? Who would just open the top of it, then slide it back in the wrapper when they go trade it in?
If its free, its for me!!

Y'know, I went shopping for "WOFENSTEIN" everywhere and just couldn't find it. Google even kept trying to correct me, but I know Ship couldn't possibly be wrong about a title that's been around for almost 20 years that practically created the FPS gaming category. I can see why Amazon is selling that other title for only 13 bucks. Amazon give it up! I'm not falling for that knockoff you're calling "Wolfenstein"!

I took a shower after gym class in high school, granted that gym class was swimming.
The love for Just Cause 2 is making me want the game.Look guys you may have influenced a sale of a product, you are a PR/Marketing shill.

I need a quote in my signature for VesselCollision (Shipwreck). What would be a good quote for him?
Wombat "Someone told me to reboot my face!"
CheapyD "I am having a cucumber day!"

I'm curious why the MW2 maps getting screwed up elicits such a reaction and gets a "MS always screws this stuff up" but something like Sony failing such a basic programing code for a leap year (that turned every fat PS3 into a brick for a day, regardless of connection to the internet) gets a shrug and a "whatever, just don't play your PS3 for a day." I can only think of one or two other times when MS has screwed up a DLC launch (like Game Room and Fallout 3), which hardly qualifies as 'constantly' messing things up.

Not trying to say you're console biased or anything, because I really don't think you are, but Cheapy seems to have a strange lack of consistency for what irritates him.

Great show. Mad love for Wombat! I do a ton of freelance work from home, so I need tons of podcasts to keep me entertained while I work and away from games. You guys definitely do the best job of keeping me entertained while hard at work. Thanks for everything!

Really enjoying the cagcast. Ship is a great addition. Need to bring Mrs Ship on as a guest. I haven't heard any good spaying/neutering stories lately.

Haven't listened to one of these in a very long time. The in-depth discussion in the opening minutes was worth it.

I had to pause the show because i got this image of shipwreck dressed as Hugh Hefner pulling on a little statue, swinging around in a hidden book-case door, which led to a bondage dungeon.

Now you all will see it too.

Wombat is right. PAX is for the general public of gamers. Not for media-only showcases.

Also, CheapyD's comment of "showing a game before it's ready can really sour your opinion of it" hit home with me. I got a chance to play Bionic Commando on the 360 before it was released, and I was just so put off by the alpha build they showed me that it made me completely shun the game. My friends tell me the game isn't all that bad, but I'm still put off by it cause my first impression of it was that it was really awful.

On the modern warfare map pack, I went with my gut and the advice from the cagcast and just went with Bad Company. Good times to be had.

You have good taste.

I'm curious why the MW2 maps getting screwed up elicits such a reaction and gets a "MS always screws this stuff up" but something like Sony failing such a basic programing code for a leap year (that turned every fat PS3 into a brick for a day, regardless of connection to the internet) gets a shrug and a "whatever, just don't play your PS3 for a day."

The PS3 leap year bug was caused by an off-the-shelf ARM Syscon CPU, it wasn't Sony's code that caused the glitch. Other than that you're right, MS rarely screw up except for Game Room and the Fallout 3 DLC. And Modern Warfare 2, of course. Oh, and then there was the time they released all the Mass Effect 2 DLC early and for free, by accident. Also when they released the Midnight Club: LA DLC early, and then pulled it. Come to think of it, that happened with a Gears of War 2 map pack as well. If that doesn't qualify as "constantly messing things up", it comes pretty close.

Geohot was already trying to hack the PS3 and showing off his results before the update, so it's not like the update caused him to start it up.


According to his blog it's the reason he's now developing custom firmware for the system, which is far more of a potential threat to Sony than his previously released exploit.

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.

From what I've read about his early PS3 work, he didn't get much further than anybody else before him, so what makes him so sure that he could get to the next level and put out custom firmware soon after the update?

As far as I know, no-one else had come close to gaining full hypervisor-level access to the processor before his exploit. Who knows if he'll be successful coming up with a software based solution, but I know if I was Sony I wouldn't want him working on it.
