I find that the decline in quality of BioWare releases is best countered with only spending $20-$30 on their games.

You'll instantly go from hating Dragon Age II at $60 to actively enjoying Dragon Age II at $10.

I'm a bit disappointed a CAG emailed you guys about compiling a collection list. The CAG database is pretty great.

Define Irony....How about having the thought "I kinda just want to play some pinball, I don't need all this crap going on" while using the toilet in a public restroom. We all know you're not using the jon while playing the Vita so its safe to assume you're sending the Browns to the Superbowl.

Nice one Shipwreck ;-) . . . . See 31:06 mark for the reference

Laughed as Wombat butchered my user name. Is it that hard? Bass-tones. like a bass guitar.

oh well. Pretty good show. Glad to hear feedback on Mass Effect 3. Can't wait for the spoiler discussion. Have you guys read up on the Indoctrination Theory? It's pretty interesting, and makes the ending tolerable. It's hard to believe it was intentional though. Check it out! *spoilers, obviously*

Indoctrination Theory


Also, I can't wait to play the Sour Patch Kids game. The narrator is Creed Bratton who plays Creed Bratton on the Office. Posted Image

Guys, now that you have (hopefully) finished Mass Effect 3, you NEED to check out this video someone posted on YouTube. It explains an idea about the ending called in the Indoctrination Theory, that possibly gives clarity behind why the ending just didn't feel right. A LOT of the stuff this guy points out really seems to make sense.



Great show, keep it up! I'm extremely far behind, having just started listening to them a couple months ago from the very beginning...I need a life...lol

Great show. Can't wait for the ME3 spoiler cast. I had to get to the ending to see all the hubbub and make sure I could listen to the spoiler discussion fresh. And, I wanted to discuss it with my son who beat the game before me.

Not sure what people are saying there are no games available on goozex. I'm showing 2,857 "complete" games as "Available Now", plenty more that are disc only/disc+manual.

Have to agree with Wombat on the loading in Mass Effect. Hell, all three Mass Effects. There was just soooo many of them. Part of why I hated going back to the Citadel. Load screen to get to the person asking where I want to go, load screen to go where I ask, run around, go to every other part of the ship with a load screen in between, board the normandy with one last load screen.

Hell, even the Dead Rising games weren't this bad with the load times....

If you look at the actual games that are "Available Now," it's a plethora of older sports games and other reject titles. Even AR Card Games for the 3DS is considered a game. However, I did get accepted for Just Cause 2 and Fable III so the site is still active. Of course I haven't received any game yet so I'm just keeping my fingers crossed. In the meantime I've got 5000 more points to burn through.

From what I've seen of the CAG Marketplace, it looks like something I'll definitely check out as an alternative to Goozex. I do think there needs to be some sort of time limit on listings, especially older games. Perhaps an automatic e-mail gets sent to the user after 100 days that the user must then confirm to keep the item listed. I think this could help get rid of the clutter that some games are bogged down with. I'm also not entirely sure what happens if a game trade goes sour. Is CAG even responsible?

Guys, I managed to listen to the entire episode in a single game of DOTA 2. I know DOTA 2 is excruciatingly long sometimes, but come on. I'm sure you can fill time talking about the Vita. Or whatever new game is out to rival Plumber Crack. Or more impressions about the new Fighting that must have come out recently.

The loading times in ME3 were the one thing they managed to get right in the PC port. Everything is pretty much done as lazily as possible and nothing's properly optimized, but at least they don't force you to sit through the load screen movies like they did in ME2. Half a second between levels in the Citadel. Makes backtracking to hear those little vignettes so much easier.

And I cried when I heard the cardboard arcade story on NPR while driving. I think that's probably less manly than doing so over a youtube video. But then again, there's probably less hipster douchiness to spoil the whole thing.

I thought the Flyers game was awesome and it was so awesome hearing Cheapy talk about the Flyers and have the same feeling we did. It was an awesome 3 for 3 night. I love all the talk of Mass Effect 3 and the ending. I didn't mind all the load times. Anything was better then #1, those loads took forever. Go Flyers!

I don't think anyone who lowered the combat difficulty in ME3 should complain about how the weapons and upgrades "don't make a difference".

Of course they don't when you can zip around like a biotic god without consequence cause the enemy bullets are bubble-wrapped.
