You know what every gaming site overlooked in their reporting of the Activision/Bungie deal? Microsoft, after letting Bungie split off, had the right of first refusal for new properties coming from the developer. So whatever this new IP is Microsoft looked at it and said no thanks.

Hey 'Bat-crash, strangely relevant article for you nerds:

http://egotvonline.c...n-man-villains/

I think it's funny that they couldn't come up with 10.

Also I think Wombat should serenade Cheapy with "Your body is a wonderland" on episode 200. anything less will be a total disappointment!

I only have one thing to say about the Bungie/Activision deal:

Who wants to take bets that sometime in the next 10 years, one of them sues the other one for breach of contract?

That is all.

Yup, I don't see how an independent minded bungie is a good fit when they fired the infinity ward guys for "insubordination."

most people probably had an issue with justins laugh on that past podcast it was really grating on the nerves especially if youre wearing heaphones to listen to the show. but he was ok in the role he played but its good to have shipwreck back because i like facts and in depth info when it comes to talking about games not just apethetic musings from someones somewhat biased point of view. no offense. oh yeah btw cheapy if youre not sure if something like a game or demo is on psn or not check out friskytanukis psn store thread he updates it regularly that way youd know that the demo you were referring to was on psn.

First it's Stravinsky's inferno dance from the firebird suite, now it's Holst's planet suite....and its not even Mars or Jupiter, but the rather obscure Uranus!


Is CheapyD really classing up the podcast?! :applause:

I'm suprised that you got that far on the iPhone app without first securing Amazon's pricing feed.

I imagine they are saying no because they are going to launch their own app, maybe just for premium members or something and have full control over how their prices get distributed.

I see how Wombat's role is continuing to grow. He's becoming good at knowing when to jump in and when to back off on a point.

One thing I admire about Wombat is that he is an original thinker. He looks at a situation and gives some thought to it and adds to the conversation vs regurgetating what he reads (i.e. CheapyD).

I think Capcom is trying to find that balance between making money off DLC and still providing something for everyone else. SSFIV is $40 MSRP and including unlockables that do not require purchase.

You know Cheapy that the DLC from Street Fighter 4 works on SSF4, right? Also, the majority of the DLC for SF4 are strategy videos that people who would be interested in seeing already know how to use those strategies effectively. And if you mean Super, it's mostly themes and gamerpics, not actual in-game content (which is still on the disc).

Wolverine and The X-men had a really neutered wolverine but the series was actually good, especially with the dystopian future stuff and The Age of Apocalypse that would have been season 2. Spectacular Spider-man was probably better overall, least favorite being the campy Brave & the Bold.

CheapyD, That Amazon policy sucks, but what if every cag member sent an email, or wrote a letter to Amazon, would that help any? Just a thought. love the show, keep your chin up, you will find a salution to this iphone app problem. Remember we got your back Cheapy. just let us know where to send our email or mail, and its as good as done.

If wombat played bass around the late 90s he must've been in the NY scene, wombat did you see Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, The Movielife, and The Rookie Lot as they just started playing? Nice podcast nice to have Shipwreck back and CheapyD if you build it they will come XD... CAGCAST CAGCAST PARTY TIME EXCELLENT XD

I think they're trying to find a balance between completely screwing over the consumer and making an assload of money.

This is an ultimate nod to comic book geeks.

I'm looking forward to Marvel vs Capcom 3, as I'm interested to see who Capcom decides to include. Will we be seeing Bayonetta, Super Joe, or the Dark Void guy?!

A quick note on Wombat's Sony/WB/DC Universe Online conspiracy theory: Kotaku has been posting semi regular updates on the character designs. And toys for the game were announced at Toy Fair in February.

Here's a link.

This is really just a off hand question to Cheapy. It's been asked before I'm sure so feel free to ignore it. I am nearing the end of my 90 days here in Japan. 11 of the weeks were spent doing some intense conversational study(not to mention living with a Japanese family) so I think I should at least have survival level Japanese down if not more. That said, are there any adventurous/interesting things to do in Tokyo in a short period of time?

It's a bad question in that it's highly general and Tokyo is massive but I will only have a few days in Tokyo at the tail end of my mega week of traveling so any little notable things you might know, I wouldn't mind hearing.

Again, this is just a off hand question so don't feel obliged to answer, I should find things to do one way or another.

Comic fans are probably more fickle. Fighting game fans are more concerned about mechanics and movesets over appearances or stories.

Wolverine would never lead the X-Men. He hates taking a leadership role. Storm had to threaten him to temporarily assume command during The Fall of the Mutants.

Professor Wombat in the house for this show! Is there someone listening this week that you are trying to impress? Or are the press junket and Fox Business appearances by your cohosts causing you to step up your game?

I did enjoy the Simpsons reference though. Keep up the good work guys!

For the love of all things holy cheapy, please curtail wombat's rants on random topics. When you or shipwreck talk about anything wombat is slightly disinterested in (for more than 15 seconds) he does everything he can to sabotage the discussion. You and shipwreck need to take a page out of his book. Right now, the two of you are too polite.

One of my favorite parts of the show was cheapy ending wombat's rant with a clearly disinterested: "Food for thought". It was pretty apparent that he had tuned out the last three minutes while looking at standard definition porn.

Having said that, wombat's refusal to read any negative comments about Justin was classy.

Good show, but please guys, next time stop saying the show will be bad. Cheapy loves to praise about how professional the show sounds in the audio department, so let's make it professional in the content also ;). Keep up the good show.
The most difficult game of all is life: 1up, no pause, no save-feature, no strategy guide. Just pray you can get someone to play co-op.
