Take my challenge Cheapy, since your a father I'm sure you'll find it ten times more depressing. Not only that but you're going to Canada, where a lot of the story takes place.

Since you offered on the CAGCast, any chance you could take me out to lunch sometime, Cheapy? Maybe even smuggle me into Tokyo American Club for some foosball? Unfortunately I just left for Seoul, but I'll be back in Tokyo again in time for TGS, so maybe we could visit that amazing burger place you mentioned around that time? Cool, looking forward to it.

Also, I'm half black, so having lunch with me would do wonders for your image.

Wombat, totally agree with you concerning "add-in" content. It's really annoying when publishers/devs rip out content that enhanced the experience in their games.

I liked CheapyD's review of "Papo y Yo" though I would like to see some nutjob argue for alcoholism and say that games like this are giving it a bad name.

LOL, Lars Von Trier is not for everyone. You should try Antichrist instead as it has the most revolting money-shot ever filmed. It's frequently described as a depressing, art-house, Saw movie.

Edit, worth a read:

None of that is necessary to enjoy the game. Almost all of that just takes up space in your inventory and you'll never use it.

I've seen the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead last year and started juicing early this summer. In combination of cutting out most carbs and sugar I lost over 35 pounds. I was 5' 10" 200 and now I am about 165.

I was blending the veggies (Kale Shake)
at first (tastes nasty) and that will make your bowel movements way better. One thing that will also help is digestive enzymes pills.



Then I got a juicer (tastes amazing) and what I noticed most is being able to wake up a lot easier in the morning. (If you have it the afternoon before). It seems to get your body more rest in less hours.

I usually make apple/pear juice or add cucumber and celery.
I still juice every other day or a few hours before I go to work (3rd shift), the biggest pain is the clean up.

Check out the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead channel too.

I really hope that the cross-play stuff catches on. They already do a similar thing for movies. For example, if you buy Tangled 3D, Disney gives you the 3D Blu, the 2D Blu, the DVD and Digital Copy. Valve tried something like this for Portal 2 where if you bought the PS3 version, then they'll give you the Steam version for free. For Valve, it seemed to work pretty well and the PS3 version outsold the 360 version (or at least on Amazon) and I think it convinced quite a few people to buy it at launch.

There's actually been a few examples where the PS3 version got an extra game that the Xbox 360 did not. In Dead Space 2 for the PS3, it came wiht an HD Remake of the Wii Dead Space game. Assassin's Creed: Revelations came with the original Assassin's Creed. Both the 360 and PS3 versions of Alice: Madness Returns came with the original Alice.

I think that some third parties will try these kind of incentives for some of their games, but if they do I think it will be only for first run games and I think they will probably expire if you don't download it in the first month or something. I think if they continue to do these kind of incentives will all depend on if they get more people to buy the games at the $60 launch price as opposed to waiting for it to go down to $5 or $10.

Regarding the cross-buy, I feel like the promotion is aimed at people that do not yet own a Vita but are on the fence about buying one. By buying the games I am interested in on PS3 like Playstation All-Stars and Ratchet: Full Frontal Assault, I am building a digital Vita library on the side at no additional cost. Personally, I'd find a Vita more appealing at it's current price point if I already have a library of games for it.

Zachary has some gut-punch moments, but I found the ending to be inspirational.
