Wombat fulfills his X-Men Destiny, Shipwreck ponders the importance of girth, and CheapyD is Jamaican and/or Swedish.

Yeah I was the one who said volume doesn't matter. I have to admit though that it will not fit in your pocket and that was one good thing about the DS. The thing is, the original PSP was imo just a little too big to fit in your pocket comfortably and once you're a little too big for a pocket, you might as well go all the way and make the screen huge.

I went to the doctor after the show and indeed, I have a throat infection. Got some meds though.

I was hoping to hear some more RE 4 HD impressions from Wombat after he switched to the new TYPE II controls that let you aim with LT and shoot with RT.

Maybe next week.

As someone who just beat Deus Ex: HR I completely agree Wombat. It felt like the developers thought only a few would actual complete the game so they put in as little effort as possible. Fallout 3's original ending (The one everyone hated) was better because it actually told you what happened. Heck, Invisible War's ending was better. But Wombat is right, the journey was well worth the money and the ending is just a misstep like the boss battles.

I was fully expecting a Fallout 3 or even a Marvel UA style ending. What we got was oddly out of place.

Ho-leee-shit. Not one of you is getting Dark Souls? Wombat hasn't even tried Demon's Souls yet? WTF?! You guys are killing me. Turn in your gamer cred right now and don't forget to pick up your man-gina shirts on your way out.

Also I think Redbox must have partnerships with publishers. If you look closely all you see is Activision, Sony, THQ, Ubi-soft, 2K, Disney and a few others: http://www.redbox.com/games

When you guys were talking about how Dark Souls having no DLC is a plus, I kinda agree that it is a plus. Approaching it from the stand point of 'the developer wants to make the game great and give you everything upfront'. So many games have stupid amounts of DLC that is already either on the disc at purchase or overpriced. In my opinion games like the new Gears are doing it wrong. No way should there be that much day 1 DLC.

Wombat, Amazon streaming is available on my TV... it's one of the built-in apps. I have a feeling it will be available on Xbox 360/PS3/etc. in the near future. I'm actually surprised that Hulu made it to the 360/PS3 before Amazon.

I have a couple games that I would have paid more for. Got Enslaved from a B2G1 sale. I would have paid full price for that. Also got Psychonauts for three bucks at Half Price Books. That got me to pay full price for Brutal Legend (that and the demo).

I am glad Cheapy mentions the Resident Evil Code Veronica fire extinguisher snafu. I now know that i am not alone.

In Code Veronica they give you a fire extinguisher on disk one that you carry around for a decent amount of time for no reason (wasting a precious item slot). At one point i decided to put it in a storage bin under the impression that i could get it later. Eventually, they *SPOILER ALER* send you to Antarctica out of the blue and empty your storage bins.

At the end of the game, you need to get a big gun (i think it's a magnum) to kill the final boss. Unfortunately that gun is under a blanket of fire, and since you longer have the fire extinguisher to get the gun, you cannot beat the final boss. I have not played an RE game since.

It's weird, I never thought that this podcast would talk about audiobooks ever. I personally recommend Brandon Sanderson fantasy books, they are good books and the narrators for his books are really good too. Audible has a lot of good stuff, it's nice that you guys like it too.

The PS2 version of Code Veronica was one disc, IIRC, so I'm not sure if Cheapy meant the Dreamcast version or was talking about a different game entirely.

And Cheapy, who are you to judge me for drinking soda? I sent you a couple of Dr. Pepper EA codes, you ungrateful health snob! :P

Anyway, good show. That random accent made me laugh.

Great CAGcast fellas.

I think the whole Cheapy condemning soda was a little extreme, but I really enjoy all the health and wellness aspects of the shows. Can we get a permanent segment added to each show like 'CAG Health Tip of the Week?" Also, can we get a 'Whatcha been eating?' segment? I always see Cheapy posting terrific pics of food on his Twitter feed and wouldn't mind some fun food banter. Shipwreck could give us the latest update on Skyline Chili.

Audible.com is a sponsor of the Howard Stern Show. I'm sure they're used to broadcasters speaking like adults.
