Ha ha look at you trying to be all hurt by a movies supposed stereotypes. Seriously, cry some more. You didn't know what you were getting into, your fault, the end.


So the twins weren't stereotypes? I thought you said they were intended to make fun of stereotypes. Hmmmm... nah, you're right. I was just way in over my head. I hoped they ould make at least decent mov ies and they didn't. I don't lower my standards because of the genre. I see every comic book movie in the theater too, hoping it will be good. Sometimes I'm happily surprised. Sometimes not. But I never try to convince myself that I have to like a certain movie because I'm a gamer or whatever. I leave that to the tools.

After the show I was thinking that duke nukem was dead. But I think that there is still a possibility that a great duke nukem game could be made. I find it ironic that they have gearbox who made great game - borderlands, that had no main character, and you have 3d realms who has a iconic main character and essentially no game. Send duke nukem to borderlands and let duke and clap run wild. borderlands has the guns, the enemies, the supporting cast, a great game engine, all it truly needed was a main character. I don't thin that the game should be first person, it will need to be 3rd person.

Gamefly boxes already exist.

God know where you find them. Supposedly they're on a bunch of college campuses, but I'm sure they've expanded since the last I've read up on them.

I never thought that the humans overpowered the Transformers movies. People need someone in the movie to relate to, and Optimus Prime is not a relatable guy.

Also, this thing with the fighting? Come on. That's just a silly excuse, it's VERY easy to tell who is fighting who and see the fight in general. Don't sit two rows from the screen.

See, you're nitpicking so hard that you've even had to fall back on the "they're using GM cars" argument. Something that you shouldn't even pay attention to.
You give a free pass to GI Joe for being so bad because "the cartoons were like that" but Transformers is somehow worse than the cartoons.

But whatever, its your opinion. Still clouded by nostalgia but your opinion nonetheless.


I'm more inclined to agree with this. However, like Ship said, neither of these films are good. At this point it really doesn't matter whether you base your opinion on how close it is to the source material or the film's quality, so people should just salvage whatever enjoyment they can out of either movie in their own way.

LOL I can't wait to be labeled the Transformers fanboy on the show.


You're really more of an apologist for obvious racism in Transformers 2 and should be labeled as such.

To the comment on Suda 51 games. I feel that a lot of people have the attraction to Suda 51 like they do with you guys with Child of Eden and Rez.

It's not that Suda 51 can do no wrong, it's just his style he brings to games offer something appealing to a very niche audience and I am sure if Suda 51 made a terrible game, people would notice by not buying it.

Sorry I'm not a whiny sensitive "critic" trying to be politically correct. It was making FUN of the stereotype. I'm not even saying I liked those characters, they weren't good but they're hardly racist.

The issue is that you have absolutely no basis for your claim that they were making fun of the stereotype. You can't point to any other examples of racial stereotypes that they are making fun of in either of the movies to back it up. You obviously just want to explain it away.

And you just want to claim it's a racist movie. So really, I think my solution is better.

I think the portrayal of the twins is racist and my proof is all the racial things they (and they alone) do in the movie. I don't need to make claims because the movie does it for me. Your "solution" to this is to claim that there's another subtext that you provide no evidence of, instead just saying that I and anyone who agrees with me isn't cool enough to "get it". If that's what passes for logic for you, then more power to you.

Nothing I do will make people have fun at the movies. People just need to relax sometimes. There's thinking movies, and shit that blows up movies. Transformers is more of the latter.

I know there's dumb jokes in them. I know that the writing isn't exactly Oscar-worthy. But I have fun.

So really, I'm sorry people take this stuff so seriously. Movies are a form of entertainment. And that's my final post on this thread :D Sorry for all the posts

Oh and Shia is my second man crush, right behind Daniel Craig.

Apple has yet to really hit it out of the park for Apple TV. Personally, the only people who I know who have Apple TVs are my dyed-in-the-wool Apple fans. I think it's been met with lukewarm reactions at best with both releases. What reason is there to own an Apple TV that hasn't been done on countless other devices?

renting games from the redbox is really awesome if you're getting a really short game for a night and not have to shell out full retail for a game that you could probably beat in a day.

All sorts of rumors that Go Daddy is about to get sold to a private equity firm. Does that mean that the Go Daddy ads on the CAGcast will go bye-bye?

While he certainly has worked hard to earn his fame and fortune (and shares it benevolently with his CAG minions), I think the time may have come for Cheapy to change his moniker. Since AppleD may infringe on Black Eyed Peas member apl.de.ap (Really? WTF??), I split my vote between HaterD, EnlightenedD, and BourgeoisieD.

On a serious note, I enjoyed the Cagcast as always and am glad to hear that Ship is on the road to recovery. Keep up the good work and the poop jokes.

Just wanted to say that Transformers 2 is the worst movie ever made. Any movie that doesn’t destroy childhood memories and isn’t patently offensive to normal human beings and at least ten different minority groups is out of contention. I just had this discussion this weekend after viewing the trailer for the new Twilight movie.

The only thing as annoying as cheapy's apple dickriding (seriously, does cheapy hear himself talk? He sounds like the situation at an ab convention) is wombat's attempt to act like he knows about the iphone when he doesnt have one. How can you know there aren't good games when you dont own the device? You're just adding to your stigma of constantly being wrong and acting like your an expert about subjects you know nothing about. Just let ship and cheapy discuss it until you get an iphone (if you ever do).

Good show Shipwreck!

Isn't it your wife's ipod touch? Either way, what counts as "enough" games to say there are NO games on it worthy of being played on a tv? Im not trying to say you need to have played every single game, I'm just saying statements like that make you sound like a douche. Correct me if I'm wrong but i doubt you play with the ipod very often, let alone play every good game that comes out. Leave the people who play a lot of iphone games to judge if there are any good ones.

Btw, thanks for the reply, a lot of other podcast hosts wouldnt care enough to.
