Shipwreck gets my vote. Noire seems like a Wombat-style game.

The answer, I'm guessing, is Shipwreck. Not enough action for him.

I'm going to guess Cheapy, since he was the only who seemed like he was getting the game as of last week.

I'm gonna guess Ship isn't a huge fan, I don't think Cheapy would have played enough of it yet to hate it.

Cheapy? Because I do not really like it because all the commercials lead me on to believe that it is a GTA in the 1940s. Will listen on the way to work.

Hey Cheapy, ever run into this problem?

Japanese toilets often contain a water jet and blow dryer that cleans the anus for you. Apparently, some Japanese doctors are now claiming to be seeing cases of "Washlet Syndrome", where cleaning that is too effective leads to problems such as weak sphincter muscles, dry skin and anal sores.

shipwreck is forgettable. He doesn't say much except to preview a review every now and then. I might forget him also. Wombat would be strange to forget.

I'm going to guess Shipwreck as well. There is a possibility the game wasn't what Cheapy expected since it is not really a GTA game where you could just go around just causing random havoc. I would think Wombat would like a good detective game considering his enjoyment of Batman, so it was either Cheapy or Shipwreck for me.

Why do people say such things? Anonymity really is quite puzzling...These guys are doing a show for you, and yet you insult one of the hosts by blabbering out something that stupid.

Yeah, sometimes I feel bad for Shipwreck when it seems like no one on the show hears him/pays attention. Being a quieter guy myself, I can relate. I like hearing what he has to say.

Anyway, this was another good show. The accents Cheapy and Wombat do had me laughing pretty hard as always.

Cheapy, you could probably save time by removing the spoiler tags and "coming soon or never" text in the link dump.

Just use fast travel to avoid driving in LA Noire, Shipwreck. I do that when Street Crime alerts get annoying because Rockstar's games can't stand to allow you to drive for more than a minute without trying to get you to do something else instead.

Nathan was talking about not wanting kill the innocent guards, but he's all for killing people that want to kill him. Speaking of LA Noire, it's odd that you can't just shoot somebody in the leg to take them out without killing them, so you're this morally just cop that ends up killing hundreds of people.

I agree with Wombat on the huge opportunity that MS is blowing with Games on Demand's older titles, which should be dirt cheap since retailers wouldn't care.

The people that buy all of the costumes and characters for these fighting games are only encouraging the publishers to continue to raise the prices to get as much money out of them as possible, much like Call of Duty fans did to get $15 map packs.

Good show.

Tight show - 'cept for forgetting Ship in the open. Bad form, Cheapy!

As for L.A. Noire - it's a different experience, so while the cut scenes may be "too long" or "too often", just take it for what it is instead of wanting it to be something different.

Wombat - pretty good Macho Man impression...'til ye turned pirate.

Shipwreck is awesome. I find myself agreeing with him more than Cheapy or Wombat.

Was it Wombat that's just now playing Uncharted 2? Would like to hear some final impressions and if he's looking forward to Uncharted 3 after playing it.

I just bought my first GoD on Sunday - Just Cause 2. It was $29.99, which was only a couple of bucks more than Amazon sell the disc version for, and I paid in MS Points which I have gotten a good amount of for free thru Bing Rewards. So add that to the convenience of having it on my hard drive, and I feel like I got a great deal.

On the other end of the spectrum, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand just got added to Games on Demand, and for reasons that defy any logical explanation, the price is $59.99.

I have a 3 card monte story.. and it all happened in the early 90's on St. Patricks day.

So my 4 Long Island friends and I were chilling in times square. He would allow extreme betting, then make you lose it all. So we made about $150... and figured out you just had to leave before he makes you lose it all, before we could do this, one of the lookout's saw a cop, the whole this stopped, everyone started walking away. We split into two different groups start walking down the block and another lookout stopped the wrong group, and robbed the wrong group, got about 30 bucks off of them. We met back up at Penn Station, split the winning money, and took to LIRR back to LI.

I just completed LA Noire and am still unsure if It was really that fun. I think Shipwreck should at least play to the end of the Homicide desk before writing it off though, its the best desk imo.

I am the one person that bought Naughty Bear Gold edition.. I am ashamed of it.
I told my friends that I bought the regular Naughty Bear for $11.00 to not make myself look like a rube. I bought the gold edition just incase I wanted the DLC. The game is bad very but I wanted to make bears commit suicide and I blame Shipwreck for it. I am a new CAG and I have been listing to the past year of CAGCasts. Last week I listened to a show that was from last summer. Shipwreck described a Naughty Bear trailer where you make a bear kill himself with a gun and said it was disturbing. I was sold instantly due to L.A. Noire's lack of homicidal killing spree. Thanks Shipwreck.

I'll play the entire game. It'll just take awhile since we have to make time for both my wife and me to play it together.
