Surprisingly, everyone is playing Witcher 2. There is also talk on the Dragon’s Dogma demo, Bloodforge, Trials Evolution, Deep Black, and more!

I can't believe Shipwreck forgot that the protagonist in Prototype 2 is not the same as in the original Prototype. Do some research next time.

Wombat - You do have the option in Trials: Evolution to have it where you bail out and it still counts as a finish. You have to turn it on though.

I don't get why Wombat tried to downplay Trials Evolution's success by comparing it to Mass Effect 3. XBLA games deal in smaller terms for records and success because they're made on a much smaller scale than top-tier retail games. People used the leaderboards to figure out that Trials sold about 100k on day one and it's at 435k right now, which is really good. In comparison, Fez has sold about 75k since its launch the Friday before Trials Evolution came out.

Venture Beat has some figures on the top XBLA games, which has Castle Crashers at #1 with 2.6 million copies sold and Trials HD is second at 1.8 million. That means Trials Evolution has already reached about 25% of what Trials HD sold and about 17% of the top-selling game in less than two weeks, so it's well on its way to becoming the best-selling XBLA game of all-time.

After beating Splatterhouse, I tried Bloodforge and they both seemed very very similar and they are the same price now: http://www.amazon.co...&sr=1-1-catcorr

Both are ok imo also.

They are similar. Bloodforge doesn't have those awful platforming sections though.

CheapyD brought it up, but I was curious too if all three of the CAG hosts would be going to E3 this year.

Am I the only person who went back and played through Mass Effect 2 to fix any of the mistakes they made going into Mass Effect 3?

I liked how the CAG cast hosts slagged Prototype 2, like a lot of the mainstream gaming press are. I think most people did not expect that game to get a sequel.

I'm also a big Keven Pereira fan, although I don't really watch AOTS anymore.

Is this the track Shipwreck was stuck on?

How do you like that camera? I saw the Giantbomb Quicklook and it was really messing me up. I also don't get motion sick ever.

Hey Wombat,

Do you know who is the voice of the owl and sings the songs in "I Love to Singa'?




It's Tommy Bond who is famous for playing Butch in the Little Rascals!

I'm glad someone asked about FEZ, as I expected Shipwreck to have talked about it by now. I had to buy the thing after seeing Indie Game The Movie. I highly recommend that flick when it hits wide distribution.

I didn't play the demo, but in playing the game, I thought it had one of the best intro sequences ever. It really tugged on my nostalga and senses. It has a big barrier to entry as the game's puzzles are tough and have their own written language. Still, if you are up for a mental challenge (NOT a platforming one) and are in no hurry it's a beautiful and brilliant little game.

Cheapy - If you are going to take Tai to the Avengers don't sit by some overweight, comic fanboy. I made that mistake for Thor and when my 6 year old son got excited at one point and yelled, this angry nerd in front of us turned around and yelled at him. When I said "relax, it's a movie", he told me to Fuck off. Funny thing, he was about 27 and he was literally with his mom.

Wombat- Complete aside. I have a 10 year old and 6 year old who play together. Sometimes when the play, it gets rough. After endless "Papa- Lisa is hurting me" whines, I finally said- "If one of you is hurting the other just say KAZOO". My kids completely adopted it so at least once a day when they are rough-housing I hear coming from some part of the house "Kazoo....I said...KAZOO!"

Cheapy if you haven't ordered everything already why not look into hackintosh compatible hardware for your new gaming rig and dualboot? Maybe even put ubuntu or another linux distro on your old imac and you can have all 3 major operating at your fingertips. Would be alot cheaper than buying both than ordering both an imac and gaming rig.

It's a really good movie. Especially if you are a fan of 80's moives. It has a real 80's movie vibe.
