Semi off topic, but I use GoDaddy. About to renew a lot of domains, but the last coupon - the $8 domain - is not working. May be since I'm renewing.

I wanted to say something about the DLC topic. For example the Alan Wake DLC, sure it might be too late for those that picked up the game at launch, but for those who get the game in about a month or so, that DLC is perfect. And then you also have cases for games like Mass Effect 2, in which people might want to replay it before Mass Effect 3 comes out, and once again the DLC is right there if you want to get it. Same goes for some sandbox or sports games, in which you might replay it and feel like getting it.

I'm surprised out of all the video game podcasts out there to hear you chose to listen to A Life Well Wasted. It's not bad by any means, and the production quality is top notch, but for some reason I find it sort of dull. Not to mention he only releases one every 6-8 months. I much prefer the best of the weekly stuff (like the Bombcast).

Great episode, though.

Jesus Wombat.. why don't you just go and buy a nice pretty dress on cheapyD’s dime to make yourself feel better. You had a hissy fit last E3 wrap-up show as well. Do you menstruate yearly?

I enjoyed this show. I am giving it my official seal of approval. Its nice to see everyone getting along again.

@Cheapy - I recommend Doug Loves Movies podcast. Look for the one with Craig Robinson from the office, he's super high the whole time and hilarious.

Been listening since Episode 1, this is the first (I think) time I've been inspired to write in, but Wombat sure knows how to drive a point right into the fucking ground.

Hey, I got a mention on the CAGcast! Go me! I spit out my soda when you thought I was the guy who talked to Wombat. Hilarious!

Like Cheapy said, I met all three of you at e3 (in the case of Cheapy and Shipwreck, for the second time) and thought all three of you were pretty great. Then again, I might be a little biased, since Cheapy bought me lunch and I have "Wombat Liberation Army" tattooed on my arm. My girlfriend, also met you, and is less biased. She offered this insight:

Cheapy D: Seems nice, and very generous, but also seems shy and very aware of his own height (probably from living in Japan). Snappy dresser, but needs to stand up straight.

Shipwreck: The Favorite. Shipwreck was cute, and very personable. Ship was the most friendly of the three.

Wombat: It was very brave of him to wear his Bakugan jacket into a bar full of smelly dudes. Wombat was the most outgoing of the three, but she wasn't sure why anyone would put a furry on their card.

So there you go. You're all good people, but apparently Shipwreck is the best. Good thing for me that he's married, or we'd have to have a good old-fashioned West-Side-Story rumble.

Regarding the Move, Kinect battle. I am not saying that the move will sell better than the Kinect, but it has 2 HUGE things going for it.

First it can be advertised as a starting price of 50 dollars. While this might not seem like a huge deal to everyone who follows various gaming news sites. This is a great ending to the commercials. Think how Mircosofts 360 commercials end "Xbox 360 starting at $199."

That is how Sony will be marketing their product "Playstation Move STARTING at $50"

Second, almost everyone seems to forget the big deal that sony signed with Coke-Cola. It is being called the biggest marketing promotion in Coke-Cola history. This along with get the Move in peoples minds.

Overall I think the fact that the move is very similar to the wii, plus the Blu-ray capabilities of the PS3 and the things mentioned above will allow the move to have great market penetration. I don't know how much the move will sell, but it will sell well.


Move has a bunch of major issues it needs to address:

1) It needs to differentiate itself better from the Wii. Why do you need Move if you already have a Wii?

2) Multiple configurations are going to confuse the hell out of casual consumers. Some games use one Move controller, some use two Move controllers, some use one Move controller plus one sub controller. Add in the camera and it's a major issue. Probably half the people that bought a Wii required help to even connect the system to their TV. This is a huge barrier for these people.

3) Cost. There's no way Sony will advertise it starting at $50 because of the consumer backlash they'd face. It will be expensive as hell to get a family of four playing Sports Champions.

4) It lacks a killer app. Wii has Wii Sports. Dance Central at least shows promise of this for Kinect. What is the Move killer app?

5) Consumer noise and lack of focus. Sony is going to be advertising 3D, exclusive titles, exclusive content and Move all at the same time this fall.

I love the show and have listened since episode1 and I have to admit, while the segment was funny, having 5 people talk shit about CheapyD was hypocritical and shows that Wombat need to grow a pair and get some thicker skin. It was noticeable that Wombat feelings were getting hurt on the previous show but I don't think Cheapy was being malicious at all, he just took a joke a little too far. I like all three of you and I hope the chemistry isn't lost because Cheapy is being too self conscious about pissing off Wombat.

I think Move is going to be a failure, not only for being WiiHD at its core, but because of the terrible pricing structure.

Kinect has a better chance because it's totally different and as long as MS recognized that and develops new experiences for the technology and not try to shoehorn existing stuff it could at the very least be profitable.


Cheapy, I tried everything for my son to get potty trained. What finally worked was me putting him in underwear exclusively and when he shit his pants instead of going on the pot, have him wear the shit draws for about an hour so he new how uncomfortable it would be. Only had to do that for one day and it worked. Good luck with Tai.

I never really post here, but I'm glad everything is patched up - more or less. If I were Wombat, I'd think twice about opening up about how much fun it was to hang out with these guys. Wombat is a sensitive guy and that's cool. Nothing wrong with that. As for the other two guys, there's a time to give you buddies shit and there are times when you don't.

Right after your "friend" becomes vulnerable and opens up and says how much he likes hanging out with you, that's not the time to harp on his flaws and that you didn't "love" hanging out with him in return.

Especially if your friend happens to be sensitive.

Ha! That's pretty good.. how did you get the idea past the Mom? Still.. that's great. Quality 1960's parenting. None of this 'if you go in your pants you don't get to hear the song that plays from the kiddy toilet'. Love it.. might try that with my kid if 's still a problem when she's older... not sure how the wife would feel though.

Howdy,
I'm glad Cheapy apologised like everyone else is saying, but I don't think he's an arsehole in general.
I caught up with Cheapy last year in Japan when we went to visit and he was very friendly indeed. I'm not a huge forum-ite or anything on here, but he was very forthcoming to my wife and me when basically he had no idea who I was, apart from being a listener to the show.
I'm dissapointed I didn't try and say g'day to Wombat when I was in New York 2 years ago.. oh well.. maybe oneday. 8-)
And lets not forget Shipwreck either... :)

Anyway.. keep up the good work guys and I'm glad things are sorted out...

cheers!

I think Wombat was being a dick in this ep, just as much as Cheapy was in the last ep. The only difference is that come next week, we won't be hearing any apology from Wombat.

Cheapy apologized sincerely right at the start and Wombat just wouldn't let him live it down. He kept making little comments like "nobody likes you" and even pulled out that list of comments.

When someone apologizes you either forgive them or you don't. If you forgive him, you need to let it go and stop trying to get even.

I only mention this because I'm really digging the CAGcast as of late (minus the hosts bickering like old women or teenage girls)

Isn't it time for some PC coverage on the CAGcast? If this podcast is to help grow the CAG community adding some PC talk might help. I know, I know out of the three of you no one owns a gaming PC.

One of you guys need to buy a pre-built system or give a member of the CAG PC community a short segment.

A case without any evidence isn't much of a case.

Exhibit A.
http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=265457
Also known as the most active CAG thread over the past week and a few days.

Exhibit B.
Blizzard is going to have the two top grossing games this year (WOW and SCII) which are both PC exclusives.

Closing argument:
PC gaming on Windows 7 is easier than on the 360 or PS3. If a game comes out broken, games are patched without going through PSN or XBLA approval process which can take months (see Castle Crashers). Steam ensures you get these patches without even having to launch the game. I've heard on previous podcasts that getting games to run on the PC platform just takes too much time. This was totally true 10 years ago, but as consoles have gradually turned into mini-computers and PCs have turned into a more stable gaming platform there really isn't much of a difference.

I could go on about what your options are if a PC component stops working versus if a console component stops working, but I'll leave the jury to ponder that one.

We are much better off having no PC coverage at all from these guys than half-assed PC coverage full of factual errors and weird assumptions. The CAGcast is good the way it is, and I really hope Cheapy didn't blow any cash on a gaming rig if APB was the PC-exclusive he really wanted to play.

What weird assumption/errors? He plays a PC game and gives his opinion on the CAGcast. There's no errors in that.
