I'm in the same boat of - "My Wife/GF LOVES Prison Break".

Hence my post.

You'd save me a few pennies from having to buy this game if you choose me.

THANKS WOMBAT!

I went through and actually read through that CAGs Most Ordered thread and it was like 4-5 posts in that the fanboys came out of the woodwork. That's amazing really. It wasn't just PS3 fanboys either you had the 360 ones in there is well. Craziness. Why do people care that much to get into an argument about something so trivial?

Fear. The people who go beyond preference and leave all logic behind, i.e. fanboys, are scared shitless they made the wrong choice. Nobody wants to be the guy who bought a Sega Saturn. So they try to convince others, but really themselves, that they made the right choice. That's why in every console generation the system that's in last place has the most unreasoning, nutso fans. A few shows ago, the Giant Bombcast made this observation and they all groaned at the memories of e-mail they used to get from GameCube owners.

Just finished listening to CAGcast #195, great job as always. I am still a bit confused about what day it is, err I mean was, umm or what ever.

I would imagine the problem when CheapyD is not the size of the dump but the size of those Japanese toilets. Maybe I have missed it but I haven't heard any story's from Cheapy on the public restrooms in Japan yet. Every time I talk to someone who has visited Japan the first thing they always talk about are the public restrooms.

Entertaining cast as always gents.

...Shipwreck did some great reviews (he still hates the PS3 though)

..."CheapyD's Toilet Misadventures - Tokyo Drift" should be a flash game - imagine having to shoot and chip away at some "American"sized 'logs' in a toilet bowl so they fit down the drain before it flushes! The 'logs' could be made of different food items and random quotes from the CAGcast and Robocop movies! "I'd buy that for a dollar!"

...Wombat, I WANT one of the Prison Break soaps! It will complete my ensemble of "Fight Club" soap and "Dunder and Mifflin" robe.

Thanks and keep doing the Cast - it puts the other gamepodcasts to shame.

Nice show guys. Nothing like hearing about CheapyD's adventures in poop while on the bus to work.

I think DLC is damned if you do, damned if you don't with you guys. You complain that they should have put out the ME 2 DLC earlier. However, if they did that, I guarantee you all would have been complaining about early DLC just being withheld content that was released separately to squeeze more money out of consumers. If they expended more time and resources to make bigger DLC and release it much later, they would lose potential customers that had moved on to newer releases.

I think releasing DLC when they did is a reasonable compromise, not so new to irritate cynical gamers but soon enough to rekindle interest in people who have recently played the game or to attract people who waited for a price drop and may be willing to use the "savings" to purchase DLC for it.

And shipwreck, you have to watch King of Kong. It's not just a great video game documentary, it's just flat out a great documentary. Even my wife, a total non-gamer, enjoyed it.

Good entertaining show but I honestly don't understand how you guys love to obsess over Apple products and flash games on your ipod touch but PC gaming? NO WAAAAAAY

Oh those confusing mouse and keyboards! HOW DO THEY WORK?! I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW I CAN USE THE KEYBOARD TO MOVE MY CHARACTER.

Backing away from making fun of Wombat on that point, i'll give you an example of why PC gaming is better in certain spots. It's not always better but here's a game where it is.

Just Cause 2, it's a fun game on consoles, but on the PC, you can download a simple mod where you can have UNLIMITED dual hooks and unbreakable ropes. Plus the many other modifications like extended grapple and seaplanes, etc. It makes the games 10x better than the vanilla version. And the PC version works flawlessly with a 360 gamepad. It's awesome to make a chain of enemies hanging from your Helicopter with a car at the end of it.

But you guys will never ever try it because, well I don't even know. Cheapy has been promising to get a gaming PC for 3 years now, Wombat doesn't have the income and Shipwreck straight up doesn't want it.

You'd think out of 3 people , ONE would be a PC gamer or try to be so it's more than mindless guessing/constantly repeating you're not a PC gamer.

Love the poop stories by the way.

Entertaining as always, and I love how Wombat gets a kick out of the name Jean Snow being dropped. As soon as Cheapy said "my friend Jean" I JUST KNEW that a Wombat interjection would be inserted and a giggle would ensue.

Keep up the good work guys.

I was actually at my crappy office job taking a deuce when I was listening to the beginning part about that very same subject matter; it was very meta, lol :)

Nice to hear some coverage on Crysis 2. I know you guys aren't PC gamers, but I still maintain a (sort of) current gaming computer and Crysis was a really solid and wild game. I may have been only one of about 100 people that bought the game retail instead of stealing by way of torrents or whatever, but I think that is part of why they are spreading the love to consoles. Anyone who has the opportunity to play the first one should try it out if you are a fan of FPS games - I still think that is the best looking game I have played, and has some really epic (in the true sense of the word) battles, sets and cut-scenes.

As always, keep up the laughs and great show, guys!

I've noticed that it's only Shipwreck and Mrs. Shipwreck that have their real names mentioned almost every episode now.

Shipwreck has his own Game Room now? Does it get better support than Microsoft's Game Room?

Cheapy, you should definitely do the most pre-ordered/sold amazon games lists every month or so and maybe even have contests associated with predicting the top items on the list. I found the thread you were talking about and your chart sucks. It just has games listed along the bottom and a mysterious line that's probably how many people ordered those games, but you offer no numbers to get any idea whether number sold five copies or 500 copies. Also, that thread was completely insane, so it might be better to keep it in the blogs so they will have to work harder to find them.

If you were referring to DPsx7, he's not a Sony fanboy. He's a delusional, Sony-hating PS3 fanboy that hates the PS3's gimmicks (like HD and needing to update to access PSN) and probably should've been banned in that thread since he trolls a lot in that way on the forums. You can read his post history to get an idea of what I'm talking about.

You should really play MLB 10 instead, Shipwreck. Road to the Show is much more polished and addictive version of My Player. Becoming the starter as a rookie for a pro team in 20 games is insane, even for the Reds. I got to the Pros in MLB 10 in my first season by July as the result of lucky injuries and trades that let me get called up earlier than I was ready for it, which is why I'm back in AAA for my second season when the GM had the chance to re-evaluate the depth charts.

Wombat's really on the ball with the news of the pricing of the PSP bundles compared to the PSP Go, which they've done since the Go's launch with a Gran Turismo bundle that was cheaper than the Go. They really need to drop the price of the PSP and the Go, as it's been three years since we've seen a price drop on the normal PSP and it's not doing too well in North America at $169.99.

I know it's easy to just say Sony should've done the PSP Go at launch about six years ago, but the PSP then was nowhere close to the versatile PSP as it is now. Just getting digital games onto the PSP was a hassle as a user when they were available two years after it launched and before they put the PS Store on the PSP two years ago. There was no iPhone, no Xbox 360, and Nintendo wasn't the dominant powerhouse then, so the entire ecosystem wasn't pushing for a digital download system then. The major issues for the PSP at the time was pricing of the software that still hurts it and the bad choice of using disc-based media for games that had a negative effect on loading times and ironically handcuff the PSP Go when people weren't willing to give up the UMDs they hated in the first place.

If the iPhone was the only portable gaming option right now, I probably would've given up on portable gaming all together as a result. There are good iPhone games, but they're good because I didn't pay more than $2.99 for any of them since none of them are worth more than that. I'm much more likely to turn on the PSP or DS when I'm interested in playing a portable game due to the more substantial, engrossing games.

Will the CAG iPhone app be out before Gran Turismo 5?

Shitty show this week.

If I include actual sales numbers, then we will have people busting out their calculators trying to figure out how much money I'm making and I don't think that is going to end well.

I create the graph so you can see the spread between the front and back of the top 50 list.

Love the idea for the contest...thanks!

The next time you do post those Amazon numbers, and post a thumbnail, please make that chart have a little better quality Cheapy. If it was possible to make games jealous of tiny text, you made Dead Rising furious.

Maybe, but seeing how they compare to each other is kind of pointless without the numbers. The graph just basically says #1 sold more than #2 which also sold more than #3 and so on, which we already got from the list. You could just show graphs showing the spread amongst the platforms or maybe the average price of those games for the month to explain why some of them sold that well, which are stuff you don't immediately get from the list.

Not as good of a show as your last... I think what got to me was the incessant complaining from Wombat about what time you were recording. Did like the bit about Boat Crash's trip to NY, glad to see a valued member of the gaming community getting the opportunity to spy us inside news (it's a plus that he is a big part of CAG of course)
