I was kinda frustrated to hear Shipwreck's PC troubles. Can't tell what's worse: ibuypower shitty customer service/communication, or Shipwreck being complacent through the ordeal. I understand that you just want it and you don't care, but c'mon man. You shouldn't let ibuypower shit all over you. You should be raising hell goddamn it.

He should have cancelled his order and tried a more reputable site like Digital Storm. I bought my PC from Cyberpower in 2007 and I think they're related to ibuypower. They're certainly both shitty companies, whether or not the owners are the same.

Nice of Cheapy to admit he pooh-poohed Wombat last week. You gotta be careful about over doing the pooh-pooh.

Not much to add to this one, I suppose. Cheapy's "if it were a dick it'd kill you" comment had me laughing. Probably one of his better quips in a while.

I echo Shipwreck's sentiments about Max Payne 3 although it sounds like I enjoyed it a little more than he did. I want to play through the second disc but after the story I think I'm done with it, which is sad considering the game isn't even a month old. On a related note, I hated that soccer stadium level. Too many enemies firing at you from all sides and the only cover available is a railing, which leaves you wide open to attacks. I had to rush most of that level and hope to the heavens for a cutscene/checkpoint.

Cheapy, is the 'garbage truck' associated with Nick Tahou's? I don't think it matters, as any garbage plate basically produces a plate of shame, I'm just curious.

Just a fan, I believe.

I felt like I was over a friend's house while they were arguing with their parents during that whole 'don't do this at E3' segment. I was pretty surprised no one said kazoo.

Shame on you CheapyD, do you not watch Game Center CX over there? Although the LA arcade featured in the America episode was this. http://www.yelp.com/...ade-los-angeles


I've been to that arcade. It's a nice little shopping center but the arcade itself is small and stuffy as hell. It's hard to know if it's big enough, because no one knows how many people are willing to go, but it's worth a shot.

Anyway, regardless of what's decided, I'm looking forward to the CAG meet-up again.

did you finish AC2?
IDk it looks like a direct competition with Bioshock infinite.

It is too bad my ballsack is about the best game the rest of this year.
Did you ride the high 2011 for the disappointment of 2012?

Shipwreck do multiple disc games usually have that problem in Redbox?
You should call because I feel a lot of games could get frustrated with that.

Than you Wombat for pointing out the truth.

I am a lifelong Batman fan. I learned to read from Detective Comics in the 70's I was as excited as anyone could be to see a real Batman movie instead of that goofy and stupid TV show. Instead what Tim Burton gave us was a confused mess, which is what most of his movies turn out to be. You can't even follow what he's doing in the fight scenes. It's all about atmosphere and mood instead of characters and story. I've been point out what crap that movie has been since it came out. Glad someone else now agrees.

And a big thank you to Christopher Nolan for getting it right! That's someone who obviously appreciates the character and understands where it all comes from

The discussion on the West/Zampella v Activision lawsuit was poor. It was a civil suit so no one was going to prison, and the trial was due to start on June 1st and the judge had ordered that it must end by July 2nd than so West & Zampella didn't settle because it was dragging on so long - it was almost over.

http://www.xboxgamez...-till-june-1st/

People are saying good on West and Zampella for sticking it to Activision because of all the shady crap Activision tried to pull to get out of the contract Kotick signed.

http://www.eurogamer...l-of-the-decade

And the guys got paid. As Wombat sort of suggested, the cost of the settlement to Activision will come out of the Diablo 3 money.

http://www.sacbee.co...-announces.html

The company does not believe that the incremental one-time charges related to the settlement will result in a material impact on its GAAP or non-GAAP earnings per share outlook for the current quarter or the calendar year, due to stronger-than-expected operating performance in the current quarter.

Wombat, MS sells a 2-pack replacement pack of batteries now for about $20, but I've only seen them on NewEgg and at Walmart.

Nail'd was developed by Techland and just published by SouthPeak.

Were you talking about former All-Pro OL Nate Newton of the Dallas Cowboys?

I just can not understand how anyone can see that Wombat is from Cheap Ass Gamer and then bitch at him about taking any/all freebie swag.

@Wombat
Every single fucking bit of free shit is for you! (don't let anyone tell you otherwise)

Your list was mostly about you grabbing free stuff on the show floor while Cheapy had a lot of points about you, Shipwreck, or the group as a whole.

Cheapy, if you are ever in Rochester I will treat you to a plate and the antacid needed for the next day. Last time i took an out of towner to Nick's (sales guy visiting from California) he surely did not make any friends on the plane ride home (said he spent half the flight in the bathroom).

Anyways i will try to have one in your honor this week...

I watched both Drive and that Sex Slaves report CheapyD mentioned just last night. Bad combination. I had a dream that we went on a heist. Cheapy and Shipwreck raided the building, I got shot, and while looking for help I ended up in a hot tub with Wombat. We got hand jobs from beautiful women while Robert De Niro smoked a cigar and watched.

Thank god CheapyD and Shipwreck didn't like Drive. movie was just out of place and annoying. All this Drive love is ridiculous. It's really a weak movie with an annoying main character that has no reason not to talk then random scenes of violence that is more lol than anything. /driverant

Kazoo!

I only imagine that's because Wombat has his dander up from the reaction he got from the 2010 E3 trip (listen to E3 2010 Not So Collectors Edition to hear Wombat get lambasted) and he's just letting it be known that he's not going to be shamed for taking swag this time around.

Hope you guys enjoy E3. I have gone a few times and will be there Tuesday, it is my version of boys week out. I heard the list you guys made on cagcast, it sounds like you have a good time together. I meet my friends at E3 and sometimes it is the only time we see one another each year. We go from men with kids, marriages, mortgages, too many work hours to giddy young kids playing and joking all day with minimal contact with the outside world. Have a blast guys, we will too!!!

P.S. Wombat grab all the free shit you can hold (or Shipwreck) , but know if they throw out exclusive skylanders for my daughter I will knock the crowd over to get one for her lmao!

Dang pretty comment-less for a CAGcast but I guess it's expected on a pre-E3 show

@Wombat
Man I've always stuck up for Wombat (in my mind) but him complaining about being so needed at work sounds so whiney it's off putting...

If you are that important you wouldn't complain about how much money you make


sorry..../rant
can't wait for the next show
