I'm surprised that they didn't mention the "death" of gamesharing as one of the bad things this year.

I still can't see why anyone would call it Game of the Year. The same criticisms other games get are somehow overlooked in this game (fetch quests, bad voice work, overused dialogued, bad combat, etc) but it's alright in Skyrim because the game is bigger. I can respect that Bethesda put a lot into this game, but it doesn't mean they get a pass for all the garbage this game has.



no kidding. I almost choked when Cheapy D first person games that aren't shooters suck, then in the next segment he praises Skyrim


That said it's pretty lame to bitch about the PS3 version being broken with regards to their favorite games. They didn't play it on the PS3, they didn't have that experience, shouldn't really factor into their thinking.

Really enjoyed this show. Kudos and crediblame to Wombat!

Though Shipwreck made me sad when he said Deus Ex was "kinda long and boring". Loved that game so much. Only thing really that competed with Skyrim for me. Good on ya Wombat for having it on your list.

The Invisible War praise shocked me, though. The original Deus Ex blew my mind back when it came out on PC, but playing IW after that is one of my biggest gaming disappointments of all time.

Lately, the Cagcast has felt like CheapyD and Shipwreck vs. Wombat. Wombat was tasked with coming up with this awards show, he did a good job doing it and then his choices were almost universally disagreed with by the other hosts, he wasn't allowed to talk about a game at any length without a comment from the others (when he didn't do the same in reverse) and it seemed like no one else was taking it seriously.

Cheapy, it's a podcast about video games. You have to talk about video games on your podcast. And when your co-host comes up with a category for a "best games of 2011" show, you have to take 5 minutes to think of something. Your disdain at the "worst trend" moment was laughable. I think anyone on this forum could think of 5 off the top of their heads and you acted like it was a ridiculous category when it came up. And then you preceded to think of one and get passionate about it, so I guess it wasn't so dumb after all, huh?

I feel bad for Wombat more and more every week. He's getting pushed out of the group slowly but surely. My prediction is that the podcast will just be CheapyD and Shipwreck by this time next year. In fact, if I were Wombat I'd probably just quit. Cheapy and Shipwreck are extremely condescending and rude to him, acting like his opinions are less valid than theirs. It's painful to listen to now and I haven't missed an episode since the very first one. Sad to see it happen.

Thank you. January this year I believe. I still want that J.O. appearance, regardless.

Cheapy I feel cheated. I really feel that you purposefully neglect the ipad due to wombat not having one. I think you and shipwreck ought to do an entire show on the ipad! I mean it needs some serious acknowledgment as a platform.

Lets start with 5 games you recommend please.

I really liked this format better. Last year was more of a rambling mess than anything. Top 5's are short, sweet, and to the point. I like this better than that. Anyone complaining about this format is retarded.

I was wondering, have you ever seen a game called Victorious: time to shine?
It came out Nov 15th and yet not a single critic review. How can that be?

I never wanted to play any of the Saints Row games but i thought i would try Saints Row the Third. Let me say the hype Cheapy gives this game is an understatement. I put ten hours into it during my first sitting and can not wait to play more of it.

I wanted to say, in the show notes you should have included your top 5. Shipwreck should also have posted his spreadsheet.

everyone doesn't really like the Jamaican observant appearances though.
Anyway, I know I have left entirely too much feedback here, but I was also wondering what ever happened to cheapy's new update to cag. I know he said there would be like another beta a while back and we never got one I don't think.

I tried Super Mario 3D Land as per Shipwreck's suggestion and was not disappointed. It is the first game I've completed in 2012. I greatly enjoyed the difficulty curve, but it probably could have gotten harder a bit faster and leveled out.

However, I will say that there wasn't enough reward to complete each level with both mario and Luigi and hit the top of the flag poles. You get one extra level. big deal, DO NOT WANT.

Hey guys it's safe to call the 3ds a disappointment so far & heading into failure.To ensure that the Wii U does not suffer the same fate do you think that Nintendo will do more to promote the Wii U but in turn take its attention off the 3ds crushing it for sure.Also how was the Pearl Jam beer Ship?
