More stories would've been great. CheapyD talking about his lost iPhone was funny. What was less funny was how little he cares about expensive devices being lost according to his twitter

"Lost my iphone in a cab but I didn't want it anyway"

I don't know but that has a rich kid vibe to me. Like you can just throw away iphones and not worry about it. It's your stuff though.


Yeah, that tweet was a joke. I did everything possible to try to get it back.
However, I'm not going to cry over losing my 2 year old cellphone when I had already reserved it's replacement 2 weeks earlier.

Despite my boyish good looks, I'm about 20 years past being a kid.

I came into this thread for a reason. I want to see shirtless Wombat with the necklace. Make it happen.

I've never understood people that refuse to get a sports game because of the person on the cover. It's never made any sense why something so trivial could be such a big deal.

Especially with all the sites offering custom covers you can print. It cost $1-$2 to get a full color print replacement done if you don't have a color printer.

While I understand the point of defending Kotaku and all, they've changed a lot lately and it's becoming a worse blog each day.

I have given up on them as well. I keep telling myself to remove them from my RSS reader, but never do. Just the other day they ran an article and completely flipped the facts despite restating them in the source link.

The literally just fixed it.

It seems like it was a dumb decision to have Sessler do commentary for games he knew nothing about.


Sessler is the big cheese and big draw over there now. He obviously underestimated the amount of working knowledge that was required. It was probably all part of the back-room deal to get on G4.

good show this week. I watched the live stream of evo tournament as well. It was a disappointment when the stream dropped (it did on two different occasions at least for me) but overall i thought it was a good start and i really hope to see it again. The marvel vs. Capcom 3 gameplay was really what i enjoyed the most outside of gamerbee's adon and watching markman handing out those gold arcade sticks.

The EVO/G4 people probably should've picked somebody better that wasn't going to be the dumb guy that can't add anything to the action. I don't think Sessler would be the kind of guy to force his way into the part, so I'd bet that he was a part of the G4 deal even though it backfired. They should just hire a special correspondent for this type of thing from now on.

I would like to point out that I prefer Guiness Stout, but when it's 100 degrees you just can't drink that stuff like you can Blue Moon. On the Shipwreck passing out front, he usually only does it when anything medical is occurring. Or if I pretend to take his pulse - the idea of blood in his own veins makes him woozy. I once had an IV line put in after I got bit at work - the doctors were trying to clean the wound and all of a sudden they rush away to Ship who is clearly going to end up in a heap on the floor. That was fun.


Wow, not only can you get bit by a kinkajou and not pass out, but you like an excellent dark and full-bodied beer. Props to you Mrs. Ship.

This was one of the most entertaining Cagcasts for so many reasons I'm not going to list them.

But I do want to take my favorite CAGcaster a little bit to task. Wombat, what were you talking about when you said Tim Tebow wouldn't like Cheapy? I don't know Tim personally, but I know enough to say thats not likely true. Hopefully you didn't mean to say that Tim wouldn't like Cheapy because he is not: a Southerner, a Florida Gator, a home-schooler, or a Christian.

I'll just go ahead and say it, I'm not a New Yorker or Jewish (or agnostic) and that in no way prevents me from liking Cheapy either.

Oh and another thing. Xbox Pure FTW. I will now only refer to the previously unnamed 360 S as Pure. MS leaving it nameless now makes sense. They were just waiting until this came along. Its a 3-step genius plan: get Major Nelson on board, Xbox Pure, Kotaku coupon partner...come on vamonos! (those with young kids should get this)

I'm not going to go pro/against piracy or backups but, does a gaming blog really need to tell you this?

Cue in Wombat:

I wonder when Kotaku will post that blog about how to rob a bank, I mean backup my savings account

I wouldn't classify Kotaku as a gaming blog anymore... more like "that site that sometimes talks about games that are will do anything for page views".

http://kotaku.com/55...-11-tebow-cover

The article goes on to tell you though that the cover might be fake because Owen couldn't confirm it. So not only is it a stupid story, but it's a story that might not even be real? It's like throwing in Alabama + NCAA + Tebow will hope to generate some page views and get them linked elsewhere.

It's kinda weird that they stop to post about the NPD numbers but they still do articles on Japanese sales. Last one they did was on April NPD numbers.

I would love to see a video of Wombat grooving on the guitar or bass & Cheapy tooting his own horn.

Someone make this happen.


I hope horn tooting isn't a euphemism.

I totally understand you when you say Kotaku has lost its focus. Also I saw your tweet about their article about DS ROM's. That's one of the reasons I stopped reading that blog. And when the readers creative criticism them it usually results in the editors responding negatively or a banning. They should just drop the whole "gaming" shtick.

I'm in agreement with the Kotaku conversation. I've actually gotten banned there twice for the most ridiculous reasons. They had a story about cosmic rays. There wasnt even a connection with games. All I said was "Am I at Kotaku?" and get banned.

http://kotaku.com/55...osmic-particles

Other time I got banned for calling out Kotaku readers as a bunch of Japanophiles. For some reason the site is filled with them, and im sure Ashcraft is part of the blame. And those same people CRY like bitches when Kotaku posts a story about Japanese devs saying their industry is dying and western games are better. Some of the comments coming from those people are really pathetic, like one person saying "I will never play anything made western, I only play japanese games".

Okay Cheapy, we get it, you don't like Kotaku. Everyone gets it, you try to cover it up but its really obvious, and hey you have your reasons but I'd just ignore them if I was you. I also don't care to hear about all the stuff you buy. I think Shipwreck had the same sentiment. For a site based on saving people money, you sure to spend a lot. And lastly, Watching people play videos can be fun, Wombat, its like watching sports on TV. I play baseball and basketball but I like to see the professionals play also. Right now there is no distinction between the pros and us. So why watch someone play COD when I am better than them. Eventually stuff like this will get sorted out.

Anyway, good show, guys. I watched the EVO finals too, and I was disappointed that Sessler was one of the commentators. G4 and Kotaku have gone all over the place, as neither seems to be video game focused anymore.

I'm not sure I really get why Wombat and Shipwreck didn't like Ancients of Ooga compared to Cloning Clyde, as the former seems like a much improved follow up to the latter to me. I bought Cloning Clyde recently when they dropped the price for Arcade Hits and I'm enjoying it a lot, but it definitely looks and plays like an XBLA from the launch era of the Xbox 360.

Been listening to the show since around episode 70 and I've only just joined CAG to give you guys props on the Cagcast it was awesome to say the least. I have a question for you guys, do u think the release of the new Xbox 360 will increase unit's sold in Japan because I think it was on the Cagcast one of you guys (probably cheapy) said that one of the big factors for the Xbox 360 not selling was because of its size and noise level.

Great show!

I thought the same thing because of the way you worded it. I used to go to Kotaku multiple times per day. Now it's pretty much only Joystiq. I agree, the site has lost it's focus.
