11 more until the exciting 300th!

I agree with Wombat, if you can do it cheaper, it's not worth it. Get some pencil and paper, and even those instruction books, a kid can learn to read and write in no time, especially with parental supervision.

Deadlight isn't Shadow Complex. It's more like Limbo from what I've heard.

I don't think asking for every PSN developer to port their games to Vita is very realistic. They are bringing mobile games to Vita. If Cheapy wants a ~$5 Vita game, check out Stardrone Extreme for $4.


You read it. You can't unread it.

If memory serves, The Dinobots were built by WheelJack after they crashed on Earth. I'm not sure how they are going to work Grimlock into the game. Time travel perhaps???

Yeah, apparently in the cartoon the Dinobots were built on Earth. In the comics, however, they began on Cybertron. Transformers lore is a mess.

I am still baffled with the talk about handheld gaming when the Vita and 3DS talk came up. I agree that the main games for the system should be top priority, but I don't think a big fuss needs to be made for the iPhone/Pad like games for it. Nobody buys the iPhone/Pad for gaming. It's a different type of device with gaming as an added bonus, while the Vita and 3DS are gaming first and foremost. And let's face it, there's plenty of games on the PSN in the price range Cheapy asked for, and even more, there are deals every week on games to bring them down to that price range as well. There's plenty there, I just don't think those type of gamers are willing to spend the kind of money the Vita is asking to play those games specifically.

And I don't know why anyone should have that much more faith in the games coming out for 3DS like Luigi's Mansion, the new Mario, Animal Crossing, etc. There's already Mario games out for it with Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land, you have Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Starfox 64 3D (not new, but so many people want to replay these again apparently), Kid Icarus: Uprising (apparently another game people were looking forward to release?...), and an offshoot Pokemon game (Rumble Blast or whatever). I personally don't see why anyone should be more excited to run out and play any game that's coming out for it based on what is already out. Why would anyone be more eager to play New Super Mario Bros 2 over Super Mario 3D Land? And I know everyone loved Luigi's Mansion so much that they were clamoring for a second...

While I'm sure these games will cause more systems to be sold, I don't think it will be doubling the sales anytime soon and I'm not sure why anyone would think the sales of the 3DS will be flooded with new customers because of these games. There's nothing really "new" coming out that would cause customers to suddenly want one if they weren't already swayed by the games already out for the system.

i agree with cheapyd on the transformers game i want a g1 version already or just sell all the damn skins whatever id pay for it for the chance to use g1 starscream ( of course id ike the g1 voices too i hated the new starscream voice). also the combaticons were way better than the constructions fucking bruticus was the shit. and if you go by the cartoon the dino bots were made by wheeljack but i believe the comics have it different but the videogames are loosely using the established stories.

yeah i know he was one of my favorites on both cartoons i was hoping theyd find someone who was near enough to him or maybe use some tech skills and piece some sound bits together. damn shame but even without him its annoying they keep denying people a complete g1 experience. id pay for it willingly like the 80s sheep i am.

Not much to add to this week's show. Kind of zoned out during the PC talk and especially during that Transformers confusion, but it was still entertaining as always.

While I agree that mobile games like Mass Effect Infiltrator make logical sense on a handheld system, price-wise these games would never try to compete with their iOS/Android counterpart. You'd have one game that costs $.99 on the iPhone and the same game that costs $9.99 on the Vita and consumers will pick the cheaper option every time.

There was a great article on The Verge a couple of months ago that touched on how the developers worked Grimlock and the Dino-Bots into the Fall of Cybertron story line.

It is definitely a good read for anyone interested in the game and Transformers in general. I am really looking forward to Fall of Cybertron and was excited to see the release date moved up.

My favorite part of the podcast was Cheapy's disbelief that Wombat didn't want an iPad. It was like telling a Jehovah's Witness you don't believe in god.

Great show. I am sorry Wombat but an iPad is much better learning device than a $2 book but a $500 iPad is too expensive for a young child to play with.

Also Theaterhythm is a great game btw.

Very entertaining, guys. I agree with Cheapy about the iPad. Interactivity is key to learning, and a lot of the apps out there do a great job with that. That being said, Wombat is the parent, and the parent makes the final decision on what's best for his/her child. This is coming from a teacher and a parent. To those of you saying that a $500 iPad is too expensive for a child to play with, yeah, you're probably right. However, I'd like to see you try to keep it from your kid (or wife :)

I agree with wombat on the ipad being a learning tool for toddlers. You could buy a shitty pc and a bunch of cheap software for a fraction of an ipad's cost. You could even just buy one of the leapfrog handhelds or something like it for far less.

Sometimes I think cheapy forgets life before he moved to a deluxe apartment in the sky.

If Cheapy were to send bickle a free game or something, I think that would be well deserved.

I read the way were making the dinobots and insecticons work, was that they were making them test subjects of Shockwave's experiments for stronger alt modes by examining lifeforms on other planets, and and this case, it was pre-historic earth.

For me the mobile games (iphone/android) will never surpass the enjoyment hand on a nintendo handheld system. Main problem i have is the overheating a lot of it causes on the devices and draining of battery life. But I do appreciate what iphone gaming brings to many people. I'm just not one of them.

Oh and on the new spider-man film. I really like Andrew Garfield as an actor (I recommend watching Boy A to you guys)....... But it's just way too soon after the last trilogy. I think they are using the villain this time that 'Raimi' wanted to use in the 4th one of his???

Btw Great podcast as always :)
