Cheapy feels left out of Goozex's sale, Shipwreck's arm is worn out from Diabolical Pitch, and Wombat watches everything but Drive, bitches.

Interesting show, since it's mostly video game talk. I really don't think there is anything wrong about the X version and Z version of a game as long as certain aspects aren't missing like levels, mechanics, etc.

As for the whole used games discussion, it is what it is and there's nothing you can do about it except to have the game cost so low that consumers would rather just get a new version like DVDs, CDs, magazines, tv shows, etc.

YES Wombat, you got to the ME3 end! The rest of the guys need to finish ME3 soon so you guys can seriously discuss about how it ends.

I agree with Ship that game endings are hard but many other game franchises ended really well. Some good examples would be Yakuza 4 and Uncharted 3. Great satisfying endings.

I don't even remember how Uncharted 3 ended. I was just glad it was over.

The Xenosaga trilogy had a satisfying ending, while also leaving room for more stories in that universe. You didn't make story choices in those games like you did in the Mass Effect series, but it sounds like all those choices amounted to nothing in the end.

I could hear Wombat's son crying in the background, but it wasn't loud enough to be annoying. I just hope he wasn't stuck in a newspaper vending machine.

All 3 endings were such a mess... so I agree.

hey Cheapy

Help me figure out why are you insisting that Wombat and Shipwreck rent Drive at all cost. Is it so they can poke there eyes out with the Move controller as they waste $5 (especially in this tough economy) on Amazon Prime on PS3? Or is it a late April Fools joke on your unknowing co-hosts. Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan have no chemistry. Ryan Gosling cites his lines as though he is reading a teleprompter on a SNL skit. 100 minutes of dragged out fail. This movie was so bad I had road rage after I left the theater.

Capcom has a simple solution available to appease the on-disc-dlc haters (ie everyone): Project $10. They are pretty much the only major company not to have the online pass (which is odd, since they do so many fighting games, which is heavily geared to online play), but they have squandered any good will they earned. They are pretty much encouraging consumers to buy used so they can spend the extra money to unlock all the content. If they include the code to unlock the $15 worth of extra characters in ALL new games, problem solved. It still screws those without internet, but every game company screws them.

If you chose the defend-the-boss option for the final stage of RE:ORC, it's even easier. Since the boss is on your side, there's no boss fight for you at all! You just have to kill the two teammates and that's it! Plus there's an extra achievement for chosing to defend and failing. And there's a good example of bad endings. You say a couple lines on the radio to HQ. Wow, that was satisfying, huh?

I've seen the old Drive movie! It's got a very chipper Brittany Murphy as a flirty underage girl working at a hotel the main characters stays in. And I remember the fight scenes were impressive, too (at the time, anyway). It's probably up there with Hollow Point as my favorite direct-to-video movie. (Wacth Holow Point, too... It's got pretty good action, Tia Carrere, an incredibly goofy Donald Sutherland, and John LIthgow with a God complex: I think he refers to himself as Jesus at one point.)

Simple enough. Now I too want them to watch it...to hear all of your opinions on the movie as well. Way to go Cheapy hooking me for yet another cagcast.

PS you should create bobble heads of you guys or hook up with Activision and get super deformed toys of you for Skylanders. If you take my ideas let me know show I can give you my address so you can put my check in the mail:)

Drive is a great movie... as a sleeper.

I hope Cheapy didn't pump it up too much so that it can't meet expectations.

Either way though, you b***s HAVE to watch it now. :)

Man, sad to hear about Goozex! I'm trying to cash out, but there are little to no games available. Seems like everyone is going crazy trying to get out while they can.

The only thing worse than Drive fanatics.... Drive fanatics who think everyone should watch Drive. I thought Drive was a fine movie, not great but good. Gets a bit annoying when people who probably watch 10 new movies a year watch Drive and then act like it's the second coming (not a comment specifically aimed at Cheapy). If you love Drive, then good for you. Don't shove it down people's throats.

I enjoyed Drive, but was hoping for more driving. This is not recommended for car fans, but for fans of movies that have extremely long pauses between lines of dialog.

I'm glad I watched it, but I would never recommend it to anyone. But, if Shipwreck and Wombat actually watch it, then Cheapy can forever call them his "bitches."

Dragon age origins had a fantastic ending. Besides, providing resolution to a story isn't exactly rocket science.

If a big part of the developer's shtick (IE. a big selling point) is your product is an epic story spanning 3 games and at the end of that journey they royally Fuck it up with a supposedly epic facepalm of an ending, then consumers are well within their rights to harshly review the product. As one has not only been on the hook for just one game with a crappy ending, but 3 games and possibly several $10 DLCs as well, not to mention other tie-ins like the novels (hundreds of dollars worth total), all building to a moment of disappointment.

If the 3 games had the same gameplay, but instead had mostly stand-alone stories like the Uncharted series, I don't imagine there would have been nearly as big a backslash. Each game would of been judged on its own merit as opposed to one game sold in 3 parts being judged as a whole.
