I like Wombat and Shipwreck btw, cheapy too of course. I think the shows current cast is great. I dont see why people trash Wombat so much, he's just making jokes. Even if/when the jokes are bad it seems like that IS the joke. I dont like when people take things too seriously and look at their comedy taste as higher level. I dont really want to hear another hipster douche gamer that happens to write gaming news making snarky comments on podcasts. There are plenty of those. I think a big appeal to this podcast is the fact that only Cheapy has made this a career. Ship and Wombat are normal guys who do this because they really enjoy gaming and doing the show. Anyway, this is partly coming from hearing the last show's comments. I've never commented on a show before and just thought I'd get that out there.

I think Skyrim is a pretty good game, and I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would for a $2, 2 day rental. I still think the autosave function is horrible though, and it probably cost me about an hour of time overall. I can see why people enjoy it but for me I still feel like it lacks something that I can't quite put my finger on for me to fully enjoy it. It's the same way I felt about Oblivion too, even though it was the first 360 game I bought. Not to mention that I had to turn off the console to fix a glitch.

What happens if the opposing gang shows up with a bunch of spiders? Do you run away and leave our character to kill everyone himself?
This may be from one episode ago but I wanted to commend you on the way you discussed the Eutechnyx pc game. I thought you did a really nice thing by giving a pc game a good amount of time and crediting the developers for their commitment to the game.
I often criticize things you do/say so I felt compelled to give credit where credit was due. I'm sure that if those guys listened to the show they were really pleased with the way you handled it.

Also, Cheapy, you mentioned last week that you were kind of turned off by BF3 on console becuase the PC version seems so much better, but I wouldn't worry about that so much. Most of the maps are a bit crowded at 64, and none of the rush maps seem built to take near that many people.
Best get while the gettin is good though, I started late and it really is an uphill battle to try and level up when everyone around you is a fully pimped out soldier and your using ironsites on your entry level weapon with no perks.

Have you stopped to think what this CheapyD free DLC homie add-on will do? I wonder how many people will pass it off as fictional like Professor Genki or research it and find this website?

I have only put a few hours into Saints Row The Third but I am enjoying the kind of crazy it's putting down, and I hear it only gets crazier. However I am going to wait for the Cheapy D DLC to drop before I play any more, I think Skyrim will hold me over till then;)
Hey Cheapy if you are going to be a Homie any idea on what kind of car you pull up in?

In relation to your discussion about going into the past with modern weapons, Darkest of Days, Time Splitters, Final Countdown etc, Warner Brothers just bought the story rights to this:
How Many U.S. Marines Could Bring Down the Roman Empire?
A story in response to the question:
“Could I destroy the entire Roman Empire during the reign of Augustus if I traveled back in time with a modern U.S. Marine infantry battalion or MEU?”
The actual posted story:
I predict that MW4 will have time travel... )

And beside mentioning Wombat, is there any other of your regular phrases sprinkled in? Will you be plugging your website with some ingame dialouge? Or will you be all "jeansnowjeansnowjeansnow"?
I totally agree with Wombat about the map accessibility in Skyrim. They should at least let us remap the controls, because I continuously press the back button because that's such an instinctive place to have it. I look at the map waaaaaaaay more than I ever use the wait function. And what's with the useless zoom in & out feature for the map that hardly does any zooming?
When will we be getting a post-CAGcast spoiler discussion for Skyrim? Is next week soon enough for you all to get to such a point in the game, or do we need to wait until the end of time for Wombat to finish playing?
Speaking of the 'cast... will there be a regular show next week, or just the Friday AM show?

Bonus Question: For fun have any of you ever played the Bust A Groove games on PS1? If so did you enjoy them or have any memories of playing them just thought it would be neat to have a segment where you 3 talk about an old title you 3 enjoyed together and remember about picking it up or playing it.

As long as you're getting one of the new Xbox 360 S models (the smaller black system), you're fine.
Seriously thinking of picking up an xbox360 how's the failure rate guys? walmart deal sounds good for black friday?
