I'm in agreement with some of the previous commenters in that renting out a movie theater is pretty much the worst idea possible for a community event. The purpose should be to hang out with the community and have a few laughs, hopefully at Wombat's expense, and not to pay for someone's ticket for a movie they could just as easily watch without you, however, a Mystery Science Theatre=like event with the CAG hosts would definitely be a must-see attraction.

Being a long-time listener of the CAGcast, I understand the objective with most things surrounding the show is to put forth as little effort as possible. <Insert achievement unlocked sound here>

After very little thought on my part, a community laser tag event appears to be a good option given that E3 is only a week away. I've included contact information for the two closest locations, both of which are less than thirty minutes away from the convention center as reservations are encouraged.

Ultrazone Laser Tag
231 E Main St, Alhambra, CA 91801
Phone: (626) 282-6178
Web site: http://www.lalasertag.com

Ultrazone Laser Tag
14622 Ventura Blvd Ste 208
Phone: (818) 789-6620

How is laser tag better than an Avengers movie?

1. CAGs will actually be able to interact with one another.

2. Gaming event for a community of gamers, complete with leaderboards for possible prizes.

3. Just think of all the activity that will be recorded by your Fitbit.

4. The cost of the event will likely be cheaper than renting a screen in a movie theater.

5. Events can be scheduled complete with definite ending times.

If laser tag doesn't sound appealing, I'd recommend scheduling a Meet 'n Greet at one of the local eateries, food trucks included, in order to provide people a chance to meet the CAG hosts as well as talk to fellow cheap ass gamers.

So running around in the dark is better than sitting around in the dark? :lol:

What's wrong with just finding a nice restaurant in the area with a party room that can accommodate 30 or so people, and everyone shows up and buys their own dinner? I don't see why Cheapy should be expected to pay for everyone.

Too funny. Any event that would allow people to interact is better than sitting in the dark for 2 1/2 hours.

Participation by the hosts is completely optional, as we know some of the CAG hosts are in better shape than others.

If you are going to suggest laser tag you might as well go all the way and suggest roller skating.

I think a Prometheus movie cagmeet-up would be pretty cool.
I guess it would have to be a June 7th midnight showing though which probably isnt good for anyone who is flying back on june 8th.
Show up around 11pm ish hang out.. then movie at midnight.

depending on price. cheapy probably wouldnt even have to rent out a whole theatre. Just maybe buy 100-200ish tickets instead.

why rent out anything?
just hang out at a bar/movie theatre/whatever at a certain time and if you show up, hang out.
where does the need to rent anything out come into play?

if you do need to rent something please call it CAX.

I don't think Wombat, Shipwreck, and Cheapy will be the only ones that went to E3, which is why they seem to want to pick places where they can relax to have the party.

Well I'm afirly sure that's the Hosts would want something in extreme proximity to the Convention/Hotels Area..

Lucky Strike Bowling Alley (inside LA Live, next to Nokia Theater)

Hooters (across the street from Convention Center)

Little Tokyo (general area with shops and stuff, be funny for Cheapy to go to Little Tokyo)

Pre or Post E3 PICNIC or BEACHBASH... if this is out of they way for our hosts I will personally drive them to and from at no cost... =D

Any number of Bars... Bring your own Booze Cash....

Renting a Conference Room at the HoTel, and make it a POTLUCK style gettogether... Set up consoles and screens and BAM! Instant CAG party!!

Hope you get your PC update soon Shipwreck! Would hate to wait for those updates if I were in your shoes too.... also I'd like to say that ever since I've been listening to the cagcast since July 2011 and since you guys are SO FREAKING HILARIOUS... I've decided to... and I know this is pretty crazy but...

I'm going to listening all of the cagcast episodes from #1 to the recently updated ones. And I'm going to be listening at least 10 episodes a day. But I mean, this may be pretty easy since just looking at cagcast #1 it's only approximately 6 minutes long haha...

But seriously, you guys make a make an awesomeNAUTS (see what I did there...*winkwink*... I know lame joke...) but yeah, I want to see how you've guys changed over the course of 7 years, when did Shipwreck get into the cagcast (since I only heard Wombat and CheapyD on the first 10 cagcasts') but also to see history going through it's course.

It'll be really interesting for me, maybe hearing you can talk about some product you guys will think will be crazy good and ends up being a piece of ****... or even listening about Tai's birth in 2007 when I do get near that episode and just knowing how well of a boy he is now 5 years later...


(p.s. I didn't know where else to post this so if you guys delete this because it's in the wrong thread I will cry ); so I'll just also add if my first few sentences didn't count as show feedback... GREAT PODCAST :D)

Cheapy - I'm sorry you're Forza poor! If you still play the game some and want some credits I could part with a few million. Put a Ford Fiesta or something cheap up in the auction house with a 5 million credit starting price and buyout for 24 hours... send me an xlive message when and I'll buy it. No strings attached. My tag is demonhellcat

"Clone of Plumber Crack"

That is the movie I want to see.

I agree with Wombat that a monthly subscription to digital comics would be awesome.

Ya know, with the new interest in PC gaming (which is awesome, btw, even if you do sound look noobs when you talk about them :) ), I'm surprised you all didn't seek out a new sponsor. Doghouse Systems makes high end PCs and sponsors several podcasts I listen to, specifically The Instance, Starcast, and This week in Blizz.

Perhaps if Shipwreck's computer doesn't come (which has sounded sketchy from the beginning), that might be an alternative. Perhaps the proceeds could get Wombat in on the fun.

FWIW, I've never used them though the site and specs look solid (I build mine--more fun (and cheaper) that way)
