And thank you, Wombat, for the 6 foot tall mouse joke early on. I think I woke up my roommate laughing at it.

You guys should try Dungeon Defenders. It's a good game but really tight with the cheevos. Fun to play with 4 friends.

Just looking at http://videogames.pr...y=highest-price
There hasn't been a game on the 360 system this year or last that has gone above MSRP that isn't a special/collectors/limited edition and everything in general has gone 20% or below MSRP after release.
It's why I kinda refuse to buy anything that doesn't come with credit unless It's something I must have day one (namingly Mass Effect 3).

I have to write in and say that I LOVE the Bullshit Quarterly stuff. What needs to be done to make this happen?

Also and I hate to admit that I know this, but the iCarly girls are over 18 now.

Also, congrats to Mrs. Cheapy on her Buzz Lightyear victory.

Maybe a game based on the supposedly cult-like religion would be exciting. Kabbalah's Dangerous Hunt, hunting and slaying unbelievers.

I do this with Arcade games and full releases too, on a 16 GB stick you can usually fit two full game installs, keeps your hard drive clean and you dont lose any performance

Another great job you guys! Loved the show, and look forward to the next!
Hopefully Shipwreck is blow away by BF3, and it can cause The Great CAG Debate, and force us all to choose who's corner we will take!
CheapyD - Forza 4
WomBatman - Batman Arkham City
Shipwreck - Battlefield 3

Check it out man! Now that things like Arkham City having superior graphics on PC, it's a great time to jump back in to PC gaming. Link to brief, cool Arkham City comparison video:

He typically has a relatively tolerable threshold of insufferable humor, but this episode he was damned near unbearable almost the entire way through. I'm not even a Wombat hater, but Christ, one horrible, completely-unrelated joke after another, and how he just became more and more amused with himself.. I felt like pausing it several times and just telling my iPhone to off. I think everyone can tell that Cheapy and Shipwreck didn't want to touch his horrible lines for fear of getting sucked into the Wombat humor-destroying vacuum, holy .
Otherwise, GREAT PODCAST KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK GUYS! <3 <3 <3

CAGcast guys, you've talked before how you would like to do some PC gaming but didn't want to buy a new machine. You also seemed like you weren't crazy about using Boot Camp. (Don't blame you there. I've read that Apple half-assed the drivers.) But have you tried Parrallels? It lets you run a Win7 desktop and programs side-by-side with Mac apps and no rebooting. Free trial too.
Parrallels actually has at least one free alternative. From what you say I can only assume you're taking about gaming with Parrallels, and I can tell you that virtualization is even worse than dual-booting when it comes to gaming.
Also I think the Mac gaming scene and open source projects have been growing rather quickly over the last few years.

Batman is the greatest character in all of American literature? I understand you stand behind your statement so I would love to hear you back that up. I love Batman as much as the next guy; he is definitely my favorite superhero, but I don't think I would go as far as to say that he is the single greatest literary character ever created in the United States.
For one thing, I don't think it's fair to pick one single character from such a broad field. What makes Batman a better character than Huckelberry Finn? What makes Captain Ahab a better character than Blanche DuBois? Or vice versa? Yes Batman is a great character, but I have to respectfully disagree with your statement simply because it is far too subjective and vague.
Second, I noticed how you qualified your statement by limiting it to American literature because, I think, you know Batman can't compete with the likes of Sherlock Holmes, Hamlet, Oedipus Rex, or even Pinocchio.
Those kind of superlative comments make people sound like tweens trying to justify their favorite pastimes as legitimate academic endeavors.
That being said, in my opinion, the best character ever in the history of American television is Gibby from iCarly.

Also, I like what Wombat brings to the show normally, but the last few weeks he seems to have lost his spontaneity. Monologues such as his "batman is the greatest fictional.. blah blah blah" come off as completely rehearsed. It just seems like he spends too much time coming up with speeches that he then works into the show for 10 minutes at a time.

At Disneyland, they do what is called "Haunted Mansion Holiday" which runs from late September to early January every year, transforming the traditional Haunted Mansion setting to something that has been "taken over" by the Nightmare Before Christmas cast.
At Disney World, it is business as usual during that same time frame. I've been to both parks (Disney World, and Disneyland) during Halloween celebrations and would have to say that I prefer the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland during that time for the extra Nightmare Before Christmas stuff, but without the decor I prefer the Disney World Haunted Mansion as they are both a little bit different from each other.
I would be very interested in checking out the Haunted Mansion in Tokyo. Sorry for that long-winded nonsense, my wife has converted me into somewhat of a Disney nerd.
