I'm always jealous at how fast Cheapy can churn these out. I'm currently editing my own show from LAST week.

So, so timely.

Still listening, but a quick note on Mass Effect DLC as it relates to Kasumi: if you never bought the Kasumi DLC pack for ME2 (I didn't) she actually never shows up in the game. I suppose its neat that the game even takes into account your time (or lack thereof) with the dlc, but it would have been neat to meet that character. Not a big deal though.

Anyways, interesting show. Always like the ME3 talk and Wombat forgot to pick the winners of Naruto and ME3 for PS3 again. Just pick me and get it over with I suppose.

Sometimes I think Wombat has a hook for a right hand or something. I am left handed and have no trouble playing my Wii or DS games.

Almost everything is made for right handed people. It's time to accept that and learn to adapt.

Don't pick Thorbahn, pick me for the contest

I think the Hot Shots Golf developers have a nazi fetish. I remember that goofy guy in Out of Bounds kept giving a Sieg Heil salute. Obviously the whole series is nazi propaganda looking to indoctrinate the golf community.

Operation Raccoon City is fun. I haven't been able to get find than 1 real person in the campaign mode at a time though. And the AI partners can't revive you so they're worthless. And you can't pick what level you want to play when you search for a campaign quick match. And there's only 7 levels, about 20 - 30 minutes each. And you can kill full-health enemy players with one brutal kill move, which is pretty much a game breaker since they can withstand about three clips worth of ammo from any gun. But it's still fun.

I'd trade any possible gifts/awards on CAG for a copy of Binary Domain. That game is one of the very extremely few that have hit a note with me, in the past handful of years. I love the premise and from the demo, I love the execution.

If I don't lose my unemployment support I will definitely be picking it up when it hits $29.99 or so!

Shipwreck, the leader designer of Ninja Gaiden 3 was Hayashi, who headed up Sigma 1 and 2 as well as helped with Other M. You know, he's the guy Itagaki called an idiot to his face in an interview.

And Wombat, Kid Icarus Uprising has like 6 different control schemes, with or without the Circle Pad Pro.

Wombat, you can drop the Jets and follow the Eagles, right down the street, you can still hate the Giants and we have a QB that hosts Dog Fights which is much less offensive then someone who is sincere for his life as a Christian.

For the record, the language spoken in Sine Mora (which itself is Latin for "Without Delay") is Hungarian and not Japanese or gibberish. Seriously, what is it with you Americans and your inability to distinguish languages?

KingBroly is right Wombat, how can you say that it's hard for you to play Kid Icarus if the developers were so kind enough to put in these options. Did you at least try them all?

@Axersia To be fair, Americans already have a hard enough time speaking the English.

I think expecting me to be able to identify Hungarian is giving a guy from Ohio way too much credit. I could identify the language from Banjo & Kazooie more readily than Hungarian.

Still listening, but a quick note on Mass Effect DLC as it relates to Kasumi: if you never bought the Kasumi DLC pack for ME2 (I didn't) she actually never shows up in the game. I suppose its neat that the game even takes into account your time (or lack thereof) with the dlc, but it would have been neat to meet that character. Not a big deal though.


To me, the Kasumi DLC is a great argument for day 1 dlc.

I purchased it the day it came out, but I was already done playing ME2, so I did her mission and that was that. Already, had I been able to use her throughout my playthrough, it would have made that a better $7 value, but as it stood, I got to use her in one mission. (still not complaining, it was entirely worthwhile)

And then, when I imported my ME2 character to ME3, I chose the save file from when the game was completed, so I had not yet played Kasumi's mission. I had NO IDEA that she was in ME3 at all until I saw my fiancee run into her.

If the Kasumi DLC was available on day 1 I would have had her for my whole playthrough and I would have had access to her content in Mass Effect 3.

Yes, I could just replay both games.. but its not a great solution compared to "just buy the DLC whenever you want or not at all"

Also, I disagree with Wombat's argument about the Shadow broker stuff. The events there essentially took place between ME2 and 3(the timeline really isn't important since it has no bearing on the story of ME2). I can think of dozens of movies where characters go on living between the slices of their lives that we get to see in their sequels. Essentially all you need to figure out is "Liara is now the shadowbroker". I have to assume it's explained in the ME3 Codex if you need more information about that.

Cheapy, you checked in with a doctor? It might be a pinched nerve or something like that in your backbone. It can be an issue if not checked. Sounds serious.

Shippy, Sine Mora uses Hungarian voice actors.

Wombat, please educate us on factual evidence where Tim Tebow is on the record as being anti women's rights and anti gay.

I have no interest in the guy one way or the other. But if you feel that strongly about him that you're willing to drop the Jets as your football team, I'm sure you must have more information than just hearsay or gut feelings, yes?


edit:

And the Shadow Broker example is a poor one for Bioware "changing canon". Anyone that has played ME1 or ME2 knows who the Shadow Broker is, he was a (minor) part of the main story in both games. And anyone that is playing ME3 without having played ME1 or ME2 would not have access to the Shadow Broker dlc anyways.

Plus "changing canon" is not what your examples are doing anyways. Sandman killing Uncle Ben in Spiderman 3 is changing canon. Shadow Broker and From Ashes just enhance and add layers to the core story.

If you think the Shadow Broker is a "He", we have two different canons. Also Tebow has done ads for Focus on the Family, who are anti-choice & anti-gay marriage.

You are highlighting my point. I don't think it is fair to the consumer to create content that costs extra, where you only get the full benefit by buying it before you finish the game. I love extra content and good DLC, that extends my experience after the story, like Borderlands did so well for example. I just paid 60 bucks let me enjoy that, and hopeful when I finished the game I will want to spend more. But this type of DLC you have buy early, it’s a poor choice by Bioware. I don't care f they release it on day one or day 101.

Way to deflect. Shadow Broker is in the main games, the Shadow Broker dlc doesn't do anything to change the fact that Liara is the Shadow Broker in ME3. It only gives you insight into how it happened.

Also Tebow has done ads for Focus on the Family, who are anti-choice & anti-gay marriage.

He's done multiple ads? I've only seen the one where he said he was glad he wasn't aborted.

Does being part of a religious group automatically mean you agree with everything a group stands for? Is every Catholic anti birth control?

Man, compare BioWare before EA and after being bought by EA. What used to be one of the most beloved developers has turned into a ridiculous money grabbing machine. Sad.
