Thank for this, didnt expect it so it will have to wait until tomorrow morning.

I'm not sure if you guys mentioned it or got word of it but Guru of Gangstarr passed away yesterday and I think it would be pretty damn awesome if Cheapy somehow provided an intro/outro to the next podcast with Guru's music. While we're at it and I'm thinking about it how about one for Nujabes as well?

Very cool. The combination of Justin McElroy and the CAGCast reminded me of the Globetrotters appearing on Scooby Doo. Quite a crossover.

This week's Bombcast was pretty hilarious but if I'm ever running late on my podcasts CAGCast before Bombcast.

video games as art


oh god. if I have to hear Wombat argue that Heavy Rain is artsy for art's sake I think I can skip right over that segment.

God DAMNIT! I cant stand that fucking Justin's voice or attitude. He is the reason I don't listen to the Joystiq podcast. Why the hell is he ruining my otherwise wonderful CAGCast. Do you feel like you absolutely HAVE TO HAVE 3 people now?

The difference in the pokemon games' sales appears to be because people prefer the exclusive pokemon in the Silver version for whatever reason.

You've got some issues, he's probably the nicest guy in gaming media today. Funny as hell, too.

Maybe my perception of is attitude is just skewed by his terrible voice, but there's just something I don't like about it. I don't know, he just sounds like someone who needs to be punched.

Great discussion about the ethics of these paid junkets. It's one thing to go to a party and have a few drinks and finger food, it's another when they pay you to fly out to Hawaii. Cheapy's right when he says consumers ultimately pay for this. Especially when you consider the questionable DLC Capcom charged customers with in 2009. At the very least the press should note that they were flown out to this event in their previews.

Haha, I can't believe that there's people that've never been inside a truckstop! Cheapy and Wombat, you need to visit a Georgia truckstop one day, it's absolutely awesome. You need to visit at midnight, too. It's absolutely magical. Great show, guys. I really loved listening to this show.

I think he has an awesome voice made for radio/podcasts. Sort of like a cartoon character :D

I was looking forward to this, but now that I know Justin McElroy is on it, I'm not quite sure......his attitude, voice, and mic presence are all horrible. He's the reason why I quit listening to the joystiq podcast.

Justin's laugh sounds like a laughing hyena scratching his nails on a chalkboard. My poor stock stereo system in my Jeep is cringing at his every sound. Love Justin, hate his laugh.

Here's to a great year of gaming in 2014   :beer:

Thanks for vindicating my comment from last weeks show, Wombat. Kinda back fired, huh? Just wondering why I went from sounding super nerdy to valley girl to sobbing child in one rant. I actually sound like a young Robert Goulet.
Great show, cheapy!
