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?


Lol @ this.

Justin is the man. Fucking hilarious, cannot wait to listen to this. Joystiq + Cag = legendary! Two out of my big three (Bombcast, CAG , and Joystiq)!

Yeah I agree with you. Sorry CheapyD but I can't stand Justin's voice. It sounds like he has a cold and has an apple stuck in his throat or something. Then the snort as a laugh just tops it off. I still like him though, really nice and funny guy. I'd like to see him on it more. Justin was a nice addition to the CAG Cast :)

Nice show though.

Wombat is a Samoan Jew :bouncy::lol:

Sufferin' succotash! I thought Shipwreck's voice was annoying, McElroy's voice sounds like pennies in a garbage disposal. I guess I'm just spoiled by the velvety voices of Cheapy and Wombat.

Yo, Cheapy, are you no longer uploading the episodes to the Zune Marketplace?

The last two episodes haven't been on there...

Jeff Gerstmann talked about how the trip to Hawaii for Captivate was on the Giant Bombcast. He said the view from his hotel room was great, and otherwise it was like any event you ever attend where you're stuck working in a hotel all day everyday. Some journalists evidently stayed longer on their own dime, but he didn't.

It sounds to me like the whole junket shame thing is overblown.

I enjoyed this week's show and thought Justin was quite humorous.

I feel that wambat hasn't given Heavy Rain a fair chance. If you have reached a real decision making moment and you see why this game is different.And it has more freedom than you have given it credit for. Wambat you are a movie fan so why not enjoy the "QTE game" the way it was designed for?

I'll admit that I had never heard Justin talk before and when I first heard his voice I was a little taken aback. However, after listening to the CAGcast I really enjoyed his humor. I actually went and listened to both episodes of MBMBAM and was thoroughly entertained.

I love CAG and the guys that run it, but with all due respect, it is the most BORING game podcast in world wide world. Justin McElroy is just what the doctor ordered. I'm a fan of the Joystiq show so I thought I'd give the old CAG another try. That dude is like salt on food. He just makes everything better!

I loved the CAGcast this week. I'll be honest, I've never heard his voice before today, at least not that I remember, and nothing about it stood out to me in any negative way. I have no idea what previous posters are talking about. Justin was a great addition and this appearance has not only convinced me to subscribe to My Brother, My Brother, and Me, but I've already watched some of The Time Belt. Great show, and if you guys ever need a stand-in again, please ask Justin first.

I realize how overly positive this post has been, so to head off anyone before they ask, my last name is not McElroy.

Goddamn that Wambat. Goddamn him straight to hell!

:D

I loved the inclusion of Justin on the show. I just started to listen to the Joystiq podcast in the last month and have added their show to my weekly downloads. The Time Belt is awesome, but the YouTube captions make it a-may-zing!

"It's like watching a whole different movie!"


Justin's trip to the stripclub sounded very similar to a strip club place I went to in 2007. Tiny Tina (perhaps the same midget stripper that Justin saw) was performing, and I showed up with a group of friends. As soon as I walked in, I was immediately hit with the incredibly thick stench of exploitation. Even for strip clubs, the level of perversion was set ungodly high.

Tiny Tina was actually too small to actually work the pole (her sausage fingers incapable of gripping the bar), so I watched as she shimmied around it while people threw wadded up dollar bills at her. Whoever tossed the bills into her cup ended up "winning" a free signed Poloroid picture with Tina (otherwise she charged $10).

Then, some black dude ate chocolate chip cookies off her ass.

...

I drank pretty heavily that night.

Just watched the first five parts of The Time Belt. When can we expect the blu-ray release? And hopefully a collector's edition with full size, replica time belt!

Great show gentlemen.

I really think Joystiq is full of shit on this one. Stop being a bunch of little bitches and take the goddamn trip! Jesus motherfucking Christ.
Oh, we don't do it because the public ends up paying for it...personally, I wouldn't feel any differently about the fine folks at Joystiq if anyone of them decided to accept the trip to Hawaii. Hell, I'd actually be happy for them.

One of the best episodes in a long, long time. Justin's guest spot was money. I was crying laughing at his Ebert joke.

I was a bit surprised at all of the discussion on press junkets. I do agree that there's more than likely some ulterior motives when it comes to game companies flying out journalists on their dime, but it doesn't seem like that big of a deal. As was previously mentioned, Jeff Gerstmann talked about it a bit on this week's Bombcast and he made it sound like a fairly ordinary time. It was mostly work, with a lot of time spent in an ordinary hotel room (save for the supposedly good view).

Just my two cents, fantatic episode none-the-less. Joystiq and CAG make for quite the dynamic duo.
