It's been too long. Wombat isn't as annoying as he usually is, not sure why, and I think a few of his (many) complaints were actually valid.


I watched the pilot for The Walking Dead show and it wasn't compelling enough to continue. The game however is absolutely brilliant, my friend has it and we played through the first episodes, can't remember the last time I had such an intense experience while playing a game. I'll gladly take my chances on a code.

Edit: I thought the ninja game they were talking about was about a Russian ninja named Markov.

It's kind of funny you guys keep hyping up the 3DS. I haven't found much in the way of games since Mario 3D Land and Resident Evil Revelations. NSMB 2 looks like more of the same. I thought it was kind of funny how you were also happy about a Sony Certified tablet since the Vita will also be getting those games (PS Mobile) available for download. It was announced at Gamescom: http://www.theverge....-certified-vita. So it will have those $2 games. I'd rather play a vita than a tablet with a controller tacked on to it. As for those almost as good as PS3 but not quite games; so far they are pretty great. If you are playing in your house maybe not, but on the go...I'm not complaining.

Good show though liked the added PAX bonus.

Enter me in for a code please. Thanks.

Great show as always!

Shipwreck you should definitely watch the Nolan Batman movies. They are beyond good superhero movies, they are just great movies.

Also, I love to be entered in the Walking Dead contest!

Great show as always, enjoyed the Dark Knight talk and generally reflects my thoughts too. I'd also loved to be considered for the Walking Dead code too.

Hey guys, the last 10-15 minutes of the cagcast were hilarious. I want to hear more about Shipwreck's views on women. Also, did I hear it correctly when he said that 1Q84 was written by a woman?

Whoops, I guess the dude who wrote 1Q84 was a dude. I get confused easily when the audiobook reader is a different gender than the author.

I almost gave up with the audio glitches in the 'live' portion, but glad I did not.

Maybe the Transformers game will be easier to justify if you pretend you're playing in the first part of the first episode in Gen 1?

And I wouldn't mind an XBLA code for Walking Dead.

I just got done watching Jiro Dreams of Sushi and I'm not sure what I think.
It is an interesting movie, and the guy has definitely fine tuned his craft, but I am unsure if he's a chef or just another overachieving self centered asshole in life. He seems to care about nothing more in his life but his WORK.

Would I eat there?
YES, but who wouldn't want to eat at such a re-known restaurant? It stinks of snobbery. Of "Look what I have done!"
It is still a very cool birthday gift from Mrs. Cheapy and I would remember it for the rest of my life. I don't blame you for bragging about the experience. I would have done the same.
But was it ART or a MEAL?
I was back and forth on this documentary.
At one point, this guy was the coolest badass M'Fucker and I wanted to go work for him and become an apprentice.
Then, that dissolved into some sort of elite stinkshit lifestyle that the everyday guy like me will never experience.
I'm not sure what to make of it. I'm sure his food is delicious. Don't get me wrong.
Its obvious he's not serving a meal. He's displaying his ART.
BUT.
Its food. a meal. Something you'll experience a thousand times.
I can't get excited about that. No matter how good it tastes.
I would not devote my life to that. Its fucked up. Its a meal.
Its food. Not art.
... Maybe its Art. I'm confused.

Either way, I'm too poor to understand.


I felt almost the same way when (I think it was Cheapy) recommended The Invention of Dr. Nakamats.

He brags about having over 3,000 patents, but then as you watch the movie you realize that 90% of them are impractical quirky junk that only he would ever use. Because he is over the top eccentric. I feel sorry for his family, like the scene where he refused his birthday gift and told them to exit the room and try to give it to him again.

He isn't just eccentric, but delusional. Says he will live to 300. Talks to his dead moms ashes (which he hangs in his living room overhead), but says she never died.

As for super hero movies, Shipwreck should hold his head in shame. He has time to see a reremake of Spiderman instead of The Dark Knight? Talking about the 2nd one, awesome movie. And none of that ONE HOUR+ origin story crap that we've seen countless times. I can't understand why anyone wanted to see Spiderman (again, it's just another origin story).

I would love an XBLA Walking Dead code
I've been playing NBA Baller Beats. The Kinect tracking works great. You can't trick it. A crossover dribble is not a crossover between the legs dribble. Sometimes you have to dribble between your legs from the front and sometimes from the back. It knows.

Edit: Just got this tweet from the developer: "Leaderboards should be part of the next content update - definitely was in the plans"

Reminds me of Jeff Gerstmann who loved Inception, loved Batman Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, but would rather watch Torque than see any of the Nolan Batman movies.

I might have to watch that one.
The Jiro one is good, its just that I'm not sure if he runs a resturant or an art gallery.

Will the real Lex Luthor please stand up! Yeah, $400 a person....WOW! I trained in Japan a couple of times in the late '80's while working for the Hillsboro, OR location of Fujitsu (no longer there). We flew into Tokyo and then took the train to....does Cheapy know his Japanese business locations? We took the train to Nagano where Fujitsu was (is still?) located. Thru the course of our training we would meet some of the restaurant owners and our hosts would set up a special dinner night. We would all pay a set price (usually a fair deal but by no means any big discount) and get an extremely nice Japanese dinner made for us. But, at no time thank goodness did it cost $400!!!! We did that a fee times as our Japanese hosts showed us that they loved to eat, drink, sing and just all around have a great time. I still have a special Nagano Olympic pin. This was a limited pin given out as they were either still in the middle of the bidding/campaigning to get the Olympics there or had just won it ( can't quite remember). Sorry that was so long winded (and for some boring). But, I wanted to share and it brings back great memories. I would love to go back before my time is up. And, on a side note, played the Mark of the Ninja demo. It never ceases to amaze me how creative people are. At first you think 2D side scroller....ho freaking hum. But, it was very fun and they added collectible elements to the game, gadgets and a nice mix of stealth and attack. Hope I posted in time to have a chance to win! See Ya' guys! PS. Will Shipwreck be coaching basketball again this winter? Do you have higher coaching aspirations? Even if just upper high school?

Cheapy hates Bane's voice and likes the Game of Thrones show more than the books.

I'm gonna go watch Melancholia, I bet it's a really good film.

I have an issue with this week's Wombat math. When Wombat was complaining about the lack of variety in Darksiders II, he claimed that there were "lots of different permutations" when I believe he meant to say there were "lots of different combinations". Permutations take into account order, while combinations do not. So in this case, Wombat was implying that there was a significance to the order the items were equipped in, which I don't think is correct.

Also on a tangent, I'm very happy that Telltale's The Walking Dead is being well received. I've enjoyed their games for a long time now and I'm ecstatic for their success.

This whole Wii U makes me nervous. I feel like it's is trying to compete with an older market. What's the value of a sooner-than-later game lineup having of ports of games that are months old? I can see waiting for Wii U sale numbers to see if a port is worth it. What I am really trying to say is "What, no bad ass version of Zelda up front? Instead I get to play Call of Duty or Mass Effect 3... again?"

I know those are great games, but not something I would start with. Am I missing something?

Don't make decisions when you're angry and don't make promises when you're happy.

Saw one copy of baller beats at my target as well, lol I checked the ball when I did and yup it was aired up, so I thought it was funny when Shipwreck confirmed air in the ball!

The way ya'll raved about mark the ninja, I now have to check it out.

And I know I'm late, but my wife watches along as I play walking dead too on ps3 and haven't picked up episode 3 yet, she's been asking about it, any codes (if on ps3) left?

I'm in the extreme minority that believes that TDKR gets worse the more it is looked at. I walked out of the theater extremely disappointed and my dislike of the movie only grows.


Well, that makes two of us :D Three if you count the guy that writes Film Crit Hulk. The Dark Knight was just such an awesome movie, and it seemed like Nolan just checked out on Rises and cashed his check. The sound mix is probably the worst I've ever heard in a non-amateur film. I can't remember any other film where I couldn't hear some dialogue because it was getting drowned out by the score.

I tried the demo of Mark of the Ninja. I liked it, but wasn't really blown away. Is it a good representation of the game? Or does it get more intriguing later on?

I'll throw my hat in the ring for a 360 Walking Dead code.

I have a suggestion for future CAGcasts. This goes back a couple recent episodes where Cheapy was misunderstood, making comments about the iPhone. You should have a segment with the CAG bag called "I said this, you heard that...bitches.". People dont hear what you say, they hear what they want to hear. Anyway...it was entertaining hearing you defend yourself from these boneheads. I'd love a code for walking dead on e Xbox. I haven't played any of them but I'm ready to pick them all up. I can't decide if I want the iOs version or the Xbox version.

In those comics/ cartoons he takes a break after he has been Batman for a long time, almost 15-30 years, I think. In DKR he has been Batman for maybe a 1.5 - 2 years and then takes an eight year vacation. That's not very Batman like.


It's not very batman? If he is only batman for 2 years at the time, then he has a bad day and looses a chic, he freaks out and takes 8 years to gather himself, how is that not very batman? The other times as you claim he took a break, he's been batman for many many years. We are seeing the infant batman and how he used to deal with things before he mastered his emotions.

Imagine becoming this amazing crime stopping detective with infinite amount of money coming from the background he came from. He's enjoyed getting exactly what he has wanted his entire life, then is shocked when things don't go his way, he had an emotional break down. The greatness that will become the batman, was born when he put the suit back on after his 8 years of grief over having to accept he does not have absolute control over his life and those around him.
