We had some technical issues, but I think you will all agree that this is a show about video games...and NASCAR. Get your questions or topics answered via CAGbag or Twitter.

"Hello? Hello?"

Oh, Cheapy, you crack me up.

Great show, I was laughing pretty hard at the technical difficulties. :applause:

Man, CAGcasts have been getting better and better lately. Thank you, guys. You are getting me through some pretty tough times.

One of the best intro songs ever.

I liked hearing about the Nascar stuff. My father in law loves Nascar and I just don't understand that stuff so it was nice to get some insight into what is fun about it.

I can attest to the fact that this isn't Shipwreck's first FAIL-filled recording session.

I'm guessing Skype issues?

That program has been real spotty lately.

Yeah, I hate Skype for long-distance calls. My gf lives in Thailand and we always had problems with it. We use Google chat now, instead.

I thought the show had a lot of funny moments this week, despite the technical difficulties. I tried to listen to it going to sleep, but I couldn't until the show was over since I was laughing too much, haha. The NASCAR bit was pretty cool to hear about, too. I'd rather you put up a show that has crap wrong with it then to cancel it altogether (like other podcasters would do). Anyway, nice job guys.

Shipwreck's Nascar story was very cool.

I had the same last-mile-takes-an-hour experience going to the Dover, DE race in September, 2009. The traffic was fine until we got close to Dover Downs, and then it just stopped. We had trackside tours passes but we didn't arrive in time to actually use them. And even halfway up the stands, earplugs were essential. The race went on so long (partly because of this bad crash) that I got a little sunburn on my arms, so it's not the safest place for people with fair skin.

I must admit that I almost gave up on the show due to the technical difficulties. A guy can only listen to so many "...hello?" before he gives up. Nonetheless, I stuck with it and was happily rewarded with the hilarious Wombat line - "You need to buy Asian Virgins!! What?" - followed by Cheapy sombering saying "yeah, Asian Virgins is what I am buying . . .". I was crying from laughing so hard, sooooooo funny!

Anyway, The show was definitely enjoyable, but still no "top analyst" segment. Any reason why?? Maybe you guys could improve that segment by adding a gambling element to the mix. Pick how you think gaming sales will perform and put some money (and/or PSN/Microsoft points) down on the action.

I thought Cheapy was offering a money-back guarantee to the CAG listeners, not just Wombat.

WTF no cagcast Thug Life? Very disappointed.

But it was very funny hearing Cheapy D lost by himself asking "Hello?".

Great show, it was actually very funny since this does not happen very often.

Yikes, this episode was a train wreck. But even with the technical difficulties and 10+ minutes of NASCAR talk, it was still more entertaining than both Joystiq Shows put together.

Guys, I listen to the podcast every week and I normally enjoy it thoroughly (although Wombat can be very douchey at times and I appreciate when Cheapy curtly dismisses his smartass comments).
That being said, this latest podcast should not have been released. You guys don't produce the most professional podcast as it is (and that's not an insult, just an observation), so releasing this incomplete, technically messy podcast was unnecessary. it should've been shelved.
we've gone about 2 weeks without a podcast, so a few more days wouldn't have been that bad.
Keep up the normally good work and I look forward to the next installment.
also, Wombat is a douche, congrats on your new son.

You've been a far bigger douche in one short, poorly formatted post than Wombat has been on 200+ episodes of the CAGcast.

Despite the technical problems it was fun to listen to, and if the technical stuff annoyed you so much you should have just turned it off.

I lasted 15 minutes. Also, I don't criticize every word that comes out of everyone else's mouth like wombat. If everything he said was funny, that would be one thing. Unfortunately, he's mostly condescending and mean spirited.

I love you guys for not editing this. Very funny, and very cool the way you guys pushed through it. It's the antithesis of The Joystiq Show, and I hope it never changes.

Having finished the episode now I will say if every episode was like this one it would be very, very annoying. However, just this once it was really funny.

It means something that I could listen to the whole CAGcast this week with all the problems you guys had and still enjoy it, yet I couldn't get through the super produced joystiq podcast. What you guys have is personality... please don't mess with that. Joystiq also had great personalities but their new formula has yet to take that talent and use it to any further advantage... their new formula doesn't fit with who they are.

This. :applause: I tried to listen to the second Joystiq Show, but I just couldn't do it. The effort to sound like NPR is just silly.

Just as Shipwreck's collared shirt was too fancy for Nascar, Joystiq is trying to be way too fancy for video games. This leads to my question (which is for Shipwreck):

Ship, I have heard you say more than once that you believe that the Joystiq guys "will figure it out", but wouldn't you think that if they revert back or stray from this new format significantly (which is necessary) that they will look foolish for trying in the first place?

I understand that you are all friends, and the CAGcast listeners respect that. We realize you don't want to comment too much, but trust me, if you guys nicely suggest where the Joystiq show could go from here, you'd be doing your friends a huge favor!
