I missed you guys. I just have a question, did any of you get to play Raskulls? That game was released on the 29th there for its still under 2010, but many websites ignored it because it was during their holiday break. I have to say that is by far my favorite game of the year. I played it with my little brother and Girlfriend and they loved it, the story is very adorable, funny and age appropriate, something you guys as parents should check out. Also Mass effect 2 was awesome.

Hey Wombat,

You know what happened to those kids in Limbo? You killed em! Remember the section with with the three rammers on the ceiling? You lured the kids into those, running away from them.

greetings

Cheapy, in answer to your Rock Band 3 question when you go to All Instruments Mode the vocals are at the setting you last had them at. So if you played a song beforehand on Hard with half the game vocals and the vocalist, that's where it'll be. If you go directly to All Instruments Mode, then it'll use the default game settings, which is majority game vocals and a little bit of the person with the microphone and I believe on medium difficulty.

I had a feeling that was the case. Unfortunately, I figured it out long after New Year's Eve. Stupid drinking clouded my judgment.

The intro & outro are approximately 1 minute combined. Also, I had to edit out 5 minutes of a Wombat racist tirade.

I'm still disappointed you guys didn't give ComicJumper a chance. Sure, the game was basically a simple twin stick shooter... but you guys didn't write off Metro 2033 for its gameplay deficiencies. Comic Jumper is all about the comedy. Star's constant hassassment of Captain Smiley... a supervillain named Brad... doing a dance to send a unicorn to heaven (in fact, the whole "what the hell is going on here" aspect of the manga level is great.... just really wish those levels were in color.)... the theme songs: even the stats screen has its own hilarious song. It's a really enjoyable game. Plus all the unlockable stuff... I wore that silly Captain Smiley head on my avatar for months. I found it to be a much better value than Limbo. I hope they come out with more episodes for the game.


Wow, I really sucked up to that game right there.

Well, anyway, good show.

Comic Jumper is one of the 2010 games I haven't gotten around to yet. I think I picked it up when it was on sale for $10.

You guys should definitely axe the console specific favorite games. The only person that seems to give real love to all the consoles is Shipwreck so there's really no point. Also, with so many great games being multiplatform there is no real reason to be console specific. Perhaps if anything you can have a top 3 console exclusives next year? Where you don't have don't necessarily have to name one for each console, they just have to be exclusive to one console.

Maybe a fellow CAG can help me out here...

Raptor - the game tracking website/app/whatever was brought up quite a bit during the podcast, but I can find absolutely nothing about it on the web. Is it Mac only or something? Can anyone provide a link? I love the idea of a site that can track the amount of time I play specific games.

Just as you might want to play Fable 3 before Fable 2, or play Fallout New Vegas before Fallout 3, I should have listened to this CAGcast before the other GOTY podcasts.

Because shipwreck is the only one that really plays enough games, the exhaustive list of various categories is too much. It'd be too much for me, too. I play enough games to pick my 10 favorites, but that's about it. All the subcategories don't really work.

Cheapy and wombat are great to listen to as regular gamers. But regular gamers can't realistically have such specific favorites; they just don't play enough to justify any decisions.

I think a more general discussion of favorite games would be more meaningful than the small little categories that are discussed here. It doesn't make sense for Cheapy to have a favorite DS or Wii game, so I'm glad he didn't really try. And if Wombat has to think that hard on the PSP category, it's probably not needed, either.

All in all, it just seems a little forced to have all the detailed categories when, instead, just top 5 or 10 favorites and ensuing discussion would have sufficed.

Props to Cheapy for recognizing Daredevil: The Director's Cut as a good movie. It really is much better than the theatrical cut. If you like comic book movies you should really give Daredevil another chance and check it out. It is pretty cheap.

@Wombat- Kingpin has always been a large man, however he isn't really fat, and is no where near Jabba the hut's level. With opinion's of the movie aside Michael Clarke Duncan completely fit the role of the Kingpin IMO.

At least three times as wide as MCD, http://en.wikipedia....Kingpin_(comics). I know it's not actually "fat" but no one wants me to over talk the Kingpin on the show.

True True, but I don't think it would be possible to have the Kingpin any larger and not have him look ridiculous like the Blob in the Wolverine Movie.

Yup, DD Director's Cut is great. WAY better than the theatrical. They even changed some story bits which I won't spoil that made the movie better. Check it out Ship.

I need to try Metroid: Other M again. I didn't like what I played of it although I gave up after about 2 hours. I've actually had a lot of fun on the Wii this year: Super Mario Galaxy 2, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong Country Returns and a couple of others - and I hate my Wii.

I see you guys have kind of struggling with putting games into categories when doing the show. What if next year you do your regular platform favorites (Wii, PS3, 360, Multi, etc), and then just throw whatever wasn't mentioned into a list of "Honorable Mentions"? Sort of how like Joystiq does it.

Some of the 360 games mentioned weren't exclusives because they had PC releases. Of course, that would make the award categories even more complicated. I beat Limbo recently when it was onsale for $10, and I'm going to have to agree with Wombat and Shipwreck. Limbo felt more like an interactive art project.
