This is more interesting:


Lol, well played. :D

An aside to any Star Wars fans that have an Audible subscription, they have the original trilogy radio shows for 1 credit per movie. These are pretty much fantastic and worth picking up if you don't have the CD's. Lot's of extra scenes that add to the experience, and some of the original actors as well.

Wombat, why does your babysitter's sick boyfriend affect her ability to babysit for you? Now, I am making the assumption the two of them are high-school age so I may be wrong, but wouldn't it just require her to watch the kids for the night? Unless he's coming over later, which is a problem I ran into with my own sitter.

Not trying to get anybody fired, but perhaps it would be best to further investigate.

LOL I thought the same thing. It sounded to me like the sitter didn't want the gig because her boyfriend wouldn't be able to come over to ahem "keep her company".

But I suppose "she needed to take care of him instead of the kids" is an alternative, less mind in the gutter answer. :)

There likely won't be a Mass Effect 4 ... but I wouldn't be surprised if they come out with something like Mass Effect: Battle for Earth

Where it's co-op and you group together to organize the human resistance to the Reapers along with Anderson and play out the events while Shepard was rallying forces in ME3

Or maybe they make a prequel with the First Contact War between the Turians and Humans and include Saren and Anderson.

Even something regarding the story of Aria taking over Omega and having to deal with Garrus and Mordin (and possibly Wrex) would be pretty cool.

I can definitely see Wombat and Ship liking the Witcher not sure about Cheapy.


Cheapy expressed a like of Game of Thrones during the show so that's why we've been posting about Witcher 2.

Listen to the Checkmate Arcade video game podcast! Also available on ITunes, Stitcher Radio, or YouTube.

I thought the Suda51 bashing was overdone. Hard to believe that some guys lower down totem pole don't like their boss/think his ego is too big, esp in a creative industry. I mean, that never happens anywhere else, does it?

Also comparing a Japanese company's 'Christmas' gift (or possibly a similarly timed Oseibo gift) to a US company's Christmas gift isn't apples to apples. Traditionally, Japanese employees get a New Years cash gift that can be quite sizable (ie, a month or two of pay). In Japan, New Years is their Christmas by US standards. As nice as Wombat's cookware might be, I doubt it is 2-months-of-salary level of nice.

And if an US developer had a game tank as hard as Shadows of the Damned, I would imagine most of the staff would be quite joyous if they got hotel soap for Christmas instead the far more likely layoff notice.

kinda saddens me that Wombat completely missed the point about "used games killing core games".

The point was that the prevalence of used games is what's hurting. Yeah there were used games sales with the 8bit generation but it was nothing like what we have now. I believe the quote even said "prevalence of used games".

Not everyone needs to look like a 16 year old girl cosplaying a 16 year old boy, every-Japanese-artist-ever.

I probably bought half my NES games used in the 80's. It was prevalent back then. It just wasn't centralized at GameStop or available online. Flea markets, garage sales, Blockbusters, Software Etc., Babbages, and mom & pop stores. Used NES games were everywhere.

I used to buy them at the local video rental store all the time. And there was at least one place that sold all of the systems from PS1 (newest at the time) back to the Atari.

So yeah, used games are not a new thing.

Thinking about the soap.

One christmas headquarters kept calling us telling us to make sure we are gonna be at the meeting because the prez is bringing our christmas gifts. They mad such a big deal. Everyone thought we would be getting bonuses or something nice because it was an extremely tough year lots of work.


Well he showed up and gave us each a cheap small metal picture frames with the company logo on them I was like WTF. I mean there a work of art.

One time they sent me an at a boy starbucks giftcard. It was for 2.00. I didn't even know you could get one for 2 dollars.... Cheap ass bosses

If your gonna be cheap don't give me anything. How could anyone think that would be a good gift?
