Wombat goes hands on with Dragon Age II, delves deep into the history of Dead Island developer Techland, and rides a cursed railroad of death and evil.

Sounds like Cheapy lost that loving feeling for the show..... Take that ball and run with it Wombat. Getting kind of tired of Cheapy's negative attitude.

I was having a hard enough time deciding between watching a movie or playing games, and now this pops up and that decision becomes even more difficult.

Can't wait to listen, thanks!

so I decided to see what I could do with it and I got to the end but there's no way I can finish him off.

Same here, such hard lives we live...

I went with "attempt to finally finish reading the book I've renewed from the Library 4 times" after watching the latest episode of Parenthood on Hulu.

Don't forget: You can listen to a podcast while playing some games.

A few ideas to get more people to listen:


  • Have someone with different taste in games on the show
  • Dont waste 5 minutes (or seconds) talking about games nobody cares about
  • More in depth discussion on hot topics
  • More contests
  • Do a game of the month or game you should be playing this week segment

A few ideas to get more people to listen:


  • Have someone with different taste in games on the show (No)
  • Dont waste 5 minutes (or seconds) talking about games nobody cares about (Double No)
  • More in depth discussion on hot topics (we do that already)
  • More contests (we more than any other show)
  • Do a game of the month or game you should be playing this week segment (not a bad idea, but won't get new listeners)


see my notes above

Pretty sure that baldy locked up the Douchebag of the Year award on this week's show. First he makes fun of Shipwreck for going to a hibachi place for V-day then he looks down on American-style places as not being traditional (I could hear your eyes rolling, Cheapy), and finally he tells Ship that the guy serving him food could not possibly be Japanese as though Ship would have no way of knowing. Thank you Wombat for keeping things in perspective - those places may not be traditional but they are fun and can make for a nice date. Cheapy get off your Shaqfuing high horse you arrogant douchebag.

I kind of just take it as 3 guys who are pretty familiar and comfortable with one another busting each other's balls.

Wombat proves that video games don't desensitize players to violence or cause them to commit real life attrocities, they apparently don't even prepare them for the experience of seeing blood. Where's Fox News now?

Stacking is probably getting inflated reviews because Tim Schaffer has become a critical darling. Not only did he do a lot of personal appearances to push this game, the critics still want to reward him for past games they hold in such high regard that sold poorly. It's not an uncommon thing. Plus, it's a unique concept and thinking outside the box should always be applauded. I just wish Double Fine would team up with a company that has better success at implementing exciting gameplay.

Why doesn't Tecmo Koei come out with a DOA Warriors? Unarmed combat versus hordes of enemies. I'd love to see Ayane's spinning attack send dozens of identical enemies flying through the air.

And congratulations on Cheapy saying the show number correctly for the first time in probably 130 episodes! And yet people only complain about his pronunciation of "Mario".

I hope there was the requisite amount of Sony bashing in this episode. I'd hate to think you guys were slacking off.

I am not sure what it is, but the environments in stacking and previous double fine games always looks cheap. Can't put my finger on why, but i felt this way when i played psychonauts (perhaps the most over-rated game of all time) too.

- Example: the floors usually have little to no detail, and the walls appear have no texture. Almost as if the art is just pasted onto the playing field.

Or he loved it so much that he wanted to give them a news story to talk about. I guess it depends on whether he was yelling "I can't take another fucking CAGCast!" or "It's all for you, Wombat!"
