If you didn't get the collector's edition of Mass Effect 3 and are interested most in the conversations/story of the game, you must get the From Ashes DLC. Unlike Zaeed and Kasumi, after you complete the mission to get the character, you will have awesome conversations at different points and locations with him throughout the game. No spoilers, but the one on the Citadel is particularly great. Definitely worth the 10 bucks if you are a fan.
Hmm, good to know.
Check out Dropbox!

But, since I want "Fighting from Capcom", here's my comment:
The talk about Journey is giving me severe deja vu of my experience with Limbo. It was unique and compelling while it lasted, but ultimately it felt like a demo some guy made and brought to a studio to get funding to make a complete game, and instead they just decided to release it as is. I guess I'm glad my PS3 is broken so I don't have to debate buying it right now.

I wanted to talk about end part with Wombat. You are 100% accurate when you say the death of online is coming from the asshats on the mics. I use to online games all the time and recently I just lost interest. I dont understand why people have to be such a-holes about everything. I have always been pretty good at online shooters, but I find it more interesting to hang out with my Girlfriend or play single player games, where I know I wont be called a homosexual term or a racist slur. It just isnt fun anymore to go online especially if you dont know the game all that well. The thing that is more shocking to me is that these people are going out of their ways to insult you and literally know nothing about you, you just happened to be promoted for some reason. Why are they so angry at you, you didnt self promote yourself, you didnt beat them at a game, they just hate. Well my two cents. Luckily there are great games to play out their where I wont be insulted, well except by my girl when I fail.

1) "Mass Effect? More like MISS Effect!"
2) "Mass Effect? More like KISS-MY-ASS Effect!"
3) "Mass Effect? More like PENIS FARTKNOCKERS!"

Also, I read reports that it is a 2-3 hour game.

I enjoyed all the game discussion - this episode seemed more focused on games and less on random speculation about stuff, which was a plus for me.
Also, I'd love to get a copy of Mass Effect 3 for PS3. I have yet to experience the Mass Effect universe, and I guess I'm missing out.

Speaking of free, I'm interested in the Street Fighter v. Tekken.

Also I really think some musical queues to break up the segments of the podcast would be great. I'm sure there are some musically-inclined people in the community who would be glad to create some unique music stingers for CAG.
I'd love to receive Fighting, from Capcom. It's good to know they're getting back to basics, dropping all the Championships, Turbos and Supers.

As for the From Ashes ME3 DLC, I think it's pretty awesome and should have been included in the full game so everyone can experience it. Javik, the Prothean squad mate is really good, and I enjoy most of his dialogue. It's nice to have him early so you don't miss out on anything he has to say. The Prothean gun you get is awesome, by far my favorite weapon.
I haven't played much multiplayer yet (been focused on single!) but if anyone is looking to play send me a message/invite/friend request (xbox 360) and I'll try to jump on for a little while.

He's best known for the ESPN documentary "The U" which was part of their "30 for 30" series.
Just figured I'd give him some props, he's got a lot of films on Netflix actually. He's a big proponent of the advancement of new media channels.

My goal for 2012 was to fund my gaming habit through reward sites which still continues on into 2013. You can read about my "journey" here.

Loved that you guys loved Journey but why does Shipwreck argue against the scores it's getting because of the length of the game? I hear mentioning of never getting bored and you guys enjoying the entire experience. I would rather it end than have the chance of me ever coming to dislike a game.

if no one has been selected for the contest, ME3 would be fine. Thanks guys.
Don't make decisions when you're angry and don't make promises when you're happy.

Didn't Shadow of the Colossus have the same climbing stamina mechanic? If you try to climb for too long without resting or leveling up stamina (via I think it was fruit on trees scattered in the wasteland), then you run out of stamina and fall, and yet that somehow managed to not be a major complaint of reviewers.
I too would be annoyed if I had to redo my Shepherd as I really don't like the default male shepherd and spent quite a bit of time changing him, thankfully I have a PS3 so my import is just ME2.
I would very much appreciate a PS3 ME3, assuming I'm not too late.

Wombat, I'd love you to pick me for ME 3 so I make a Cheapy D Shephard and make him do the nasty with the Krogan LOL
