Not sure what all this Apple vs. PC stuff is about. He works with Mac products and plays with PC products. Who gives a shit what platform he uses for what?

Also, Apple products are so much better then PC crap.


That's really the thing. If you look at the products the three of us own we pretty much have everything covered besides Windows Phone and maybe Android phones. I say maybe because we all own Kindle Fires. I know it's not the same as an Android phone, but we only need one phone and we're happy with our iPhones. Among us we own Macs, PCs, iPhones, iPads, Netbooks, Kindles, Xbox 360s, PS3s, Wiis, Vitas, 3DSes, Apple TVs, OnLive Consoles, and probably a bunch of other devices I'm forgetting.

We talk about the stuff we are currently using most. We're using that stuff the most because we enjoy it.

Yeah last thing we need is for the CaGcast to talk about products they don't use as if they are great. RAther here their opinion as it is no matter how wrong it is. :P

Great episode guys! Looking forward to next week, and I am not opposed to Wombat+Ship doing an episode while Cheapy is on vacation.

Not specific to this show, but definitely CAGCast related. I think one of the cagcast crew should give an android device a try, maybe this will get you motivated :P

Put me down for a Hybrid code please

Edit: I mean something besides a Kindle fire, that hardly counts.

My laptop with a desktop CPU that can likely do 1080p video encoding and has a Blu-ray drive says hi and is laughing at you. Especially since it cost the same as a base Macbook Pro with mobile processor and NO option for a Blu-ray drive.
Adobe Premiere is a pretty good piece of software which I plan on buying, may even buy the Master Suite since I can use it for freelance work and buy at student price. You can't do the same with FinalCut Pro if you bought a student version. I also heard someone say it was watered down.

For years, my opinions of games have pretty closely matched those of Shipwreck. However, I really enjoyed Wreckateer and Deadlight. I'm also not ashamed to say I loved the new Total Recall! I grew up on all those 80's action movies and I don't think they would work nowadays. The cheese factor was so high in those movies but those same types of one-liners wouldn't fly today.

And what's wrong with a movie with all action? The fight scenes were awesome and well choreographed. Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel fighting is worth the price of admission! One long chase movie? Ronin was pretty much all chase scenes, so was the first Bourne movie and those were both awesome!

Also, I would love a Hybrid code!

I laughed out loud when Shipwreck started arguing the semantics of a trick shot and a good shot with Wombat. I also had a great time watching Cheapy play Slender on Twitch, especially when he fell over at the end. Also, Hybrid.

I'm pretty sure if Counter-Strike GO was ready for release on August 21 that it would've been ready to go a week or two earlier if they were allowed into the pearly gates of the Summer of Arcade. The time between submission and release for XBLA games is long enough that any game that comes out within a month of Summer of Arcade probably could've been switched in without much issue. It would be a good idea for Microsoft to have used that Friday slot to release another game each week so that the underwhelming releases weren't the only thing they offered each week, which could be used for a second tier of highlighted releases or just the rest of the crap they want to push out with the usual amount of promotion.

There was a tweet where Eric Pope, community guy for Harmonix, was joking about passing on Summer of Arcade so that Wreckateer could have the slot, which was more of a jab at Dave Lang than anything serious. I find it interesting when third-parties are willing to sacrifice their multiplatform audience to try to bump one of them up for something like Summer of Arcade, as it's kind of shitty move and it can be compounded if they rush the game out to capitalize on it like the Lara Croft game.

Finally caught up with the last episode. Great show as always.
CheapyD, regarding your iMac: Have you tried cleaning out the air-vents at the bottom and on top of the iMac. Over time quite a bit of dust can accumulate and get stuck in the vents which inherently will reduce the air-flow. This could be the cause of the iMac always running hot.
If this doesn't help and applications still crash... I would suggest:
1. Backup your important files
2. Prepare a usb stick with a Mac OSX Mountain Lion Image
3. Insert the usb stick
4. Reboot the iMac while holding down the alt key
5. Select the usb stick --> it will start the Mountain Lion installer
6. From the tools menu select the Disk Utility --> Erase the harddrive
7. Install Mountain Lion :-)

Kind Regards
Chris

I think that assuming that people care more about gamerscore than about PS trophies/level is a pretty ignorant assumption. If you're just talking personally, then fine. But it sounded like Cheapy was saying that PS trophies don't matter as much as gamerscore, which is BS since they both are equally arbitrary numbers that barely matter and yet are all-important (depending on if you care about achievements or not). I personally prefer PS3, so trophies are better IMO. But that's just me. I don't think that gamerscore is more or less "important."
Yes, this is a SUPER SERIOUS matter!

Oh, and I downloaded the War of the Roses beta, but I can't play it. The server browser only pops up one server at a time (even though I can tell there's more since refreshing brings up a different one), but I can't connect in any feasible way. I can't click on the server, I can't hit enter, etc. I just sit at the server browser and can't do anything, aside from going back to the menu, so I gave up. I don't even know what type of game it is.

Ditto. I did this last week with my 2009/10 MacBook pro and the speed difference is amazing. Should definitely help.

Might the 3DS XL kerfuffle been avoided if Wombat had used the adjective "impressive"? Anyway, I'm throwing in my e-hat for Hybrid.

Perhaps.

But Mark MacDonald was raving about how good the 3DS XL was on the latest 8-4 podcast, and somehow I don't think Cheapy would have tried to shout him down with an ode to the iPhone like he did to Wombat.

I'm surprised at the amount of dlc darksiders 2 is gonna have. I enjoyed/platted Darksiders 1, and there was no dlc for that game. Already they have Angel dlc(limited edition) pre order dlc for gamestop, bestbuy and amazon, crucibles (new back of manual dlc) and a season pass for 3 more dlcs ($20). seems they are going off the saints row 3 dlc rush...

I have to call BS on Wombat performing "trick" shots by shooting at all the letters of a Pepsi can. That sounds absurd. I was in the Army for 8 years and qualified with 3 weapons and none of our qualifications involved shooting soda cans. From now on, anytime Wombat drops some BS, Cheapy should yell "PULL", and make a shotgun sound like he is skeet shooting that BS out of the air.

It wasn't illegal before 1972. Also you don't need a permit if the bird was injured, or orphaned (technically you should try to release it back to the wild, but no one is going to go after you for that). You can legally buy many foreign species of crows; Minah birds are the most popular due to their ability to mimic speech.

What's so impossible as long as you reset the can between shots, or use one can per letter? I'm assuming he used a BB gun or a .22, not some military caliber weapon that would blow the can apart. Also soda cans used to be a lot stronger back in the day because they were made out of tin.

Another great episode.

Also Cheapy, I can kind of relate to your enthusiasm for foosball. Since before I was born my dad's been a crazy foosball fan. So much so that when he was stationed in Germany during the late 70's/early 80's while in the Air Force, he played on a semi-pro team, lol. I remember him teaching me how to pass the ball between guys on each row and to not wildly spin the handles when I was a kid.

Also, I'm interested in hearing what you think of Dust: An Elysian Tail next week, Ship. Haven't been too interested XBLA's recent output this summer, but Dust looks amazing.

Yes, we used a .22 and I mentioned on the show we would reset the can. It wasn't really a great trick, but it would impress the younger campers.

I saved one of the cans for a long time, but lost it after various moves.
