Cheapy: the reason you would stop by the Square Enix booth at TGS and check out new games is because you have thousands of twitter followers, site visitors, and podcast listeners who can't make it to Tokyo and who want information about these games. I would have thought that was obvious.

I think people forget that the Wii only came with one controller and you had to pay $40 to play Wii Sports Tennis multiplayer. And that was the Wii's killer app.

By comparison the Wii U is in a far better position for local multiplayer because, even if Motion Plus is required, a lot of Wii U purchasers will already have the necessary equipment. There's also the fact that online multiplayer should be a lot better on the Wii U, even if it's not up to PS360 standards.

There really was no reason to expect the Wii U to come with anything but the tablet controller, and since it will sell out for months until Nintendo can get the supply up packing in extra equipment would have just cost them money unnecessarily.

That's CheapyD for you.He lazily does stuff.

I wonder if knock off Wiimotes work on the WiiU.

If Nintendo included a wiimote with the Wii U then the complaint would be why should we have to pay for another wiimote when we already have one. Blah. Blah. Blah.

Hey Ship,

Are you editing using a Mac (with OSX 10.6.8 or later, 64 bit processor)? You may be able to save your footage using Motion 5 available on the OSX App Store for $49.99 (less than the $200 mentioned during the CAGcast). It has keying effects and also allows you to resize/move your footage (among many other special effects features). Can edit within Motion, drop in footage behind the keyed footage and export your files as Quick times then drop those into iMovie. Just a possible solution.

For anyone watching the Football Phone commercial, be sure to look out for a young Christopher Walken at 0:11 in.

That's a woman at 11 seconds in. I don't see any Walkens in there. in 1990 Chris Walken would have been a 'young' 47.

According to Don Dodge, Developer Advocate for Google, Apple has not passed a new google maps that they attempted to push onto iOS-6.

It's nice they were able to get Charles Barkley finally, hopefully they add the '93 Suns in the next game.

I'm looking forward to the BL2 talk that will come. This is the first time that I've been playing a game like this right after launch. (Only ever have played WoW xpacs and then TOR directly at launch.) I'm playing Zer0 with my friends, and he is awesome. But I knew he would be, since I loved being the sniper in BL1 as well.

The end clip about the SI football phone was funny. I wonder if, in the future, the football-loving majority will become the minority, and that kind of stuff won't sell easily. And the tech stuff will be more mainstream. I guess it's already happening.

Great show, loved the Borderlands 2 talk. Looking forward to more Borderlands 2 talk as you all get to play more.

Shipwreck might go collecting nuts. Because I think a lot of zones have lost echo recorders and vault images hidden and you get Badass points for finding a full set per area.

by now you should know that Cheapy doesn't answer questions, he uses them as soapboxes.

Woops. I got my hopes up to see a young Christopher Walken in a classic low-budget commercial.

I think I'm gonna have to agree with Shipwreck on MK vs. DC not being appropriate for Tai (although I wasn't much older when I played Mortal Kombat for the first time). It's a T-rated game, but fatalities are still there. I dunno how he'd react to Batman getting electrocuted to death by Raiden.

Still, I think Cheapy would enjoy the story mode.

Been playing Blands 2 since Tuesday and NOT loving it! Plays like a product, not a game. Tried to simply do better than the first, which I hate in games. The whole damn thing plays like DLC to the first game.

On a side note, can't wait for BioShock Infinite and Halo 4. Games that are doing something different with the IP.

Great show like usual guys.

I have a movie recommendation for Cheapy. I know you like to cry during movies, so you should watch Nanking. When I watched this with some people all the girls were crying, so this would be perfect for you.

Watching this movie will also help you understand what this Diaoyu islands (senkaku islands) conflict is really all about. (I assume you hear a lot about it living in Japan and all.) Basically, Chinese people still hate Japan for events like those portrayed in this movie, and the hatred rises to the surface whenever anything World War Two is brought up.

Which is funny considering how often in the past he complained about never finding things in the store...

Glad to see you guys are showing love for teh PC Gamingz. I agree it takes awhile to get accustomed to again after being on console for such a long time, but once you're in the "zone", you really start to appreciate it. :applause:

This is for Cheapy, check out The Man from Nowhere on Netflix streaming. Best martial arts movie in a long time. I challenge you not to cry. I think you will really like this movie.


Meh. The Raid, Kung Fu Panda 2, Reign of Assassins, 13 Assassins, Shaolin, Ip Man and Haywire are better choices imho.

Honestly I can't see what else Nintendo can do regarding the Wiimotes. There are just too many out there in circulation for Nintendo to completely abandon them. But they will be introducing a new controller in the form of the tablet, so Wombat's desire for a new Nintendo console to use a new kind of controller is (somewhat) fulfilled. My worry is that many of the Wii U games will play better with the Pro Controller or the Wiimotes, so there won't be much reason to play games on the Wii U that also come out on the 360/PS3.

I know that games requiring the Wiimotes be motion plus will be confusing at first to the market, but Nintendo needs to sever the regular Wiimotes from the consumer base. I think a majority of active Wii users will have bought at least one or two Wiimotes with motion plus and will therefore not have a problem with the Wii U launches.

Once the games are there I'll pick up a Wii U but I don't see the desire to get it at launch just because the games will be there eventually. There's a chance for a price drop or better bundles later on in the system's lifecycle.

Wombat, thanks for getting my prenup joke lol. And thanks for the room suggestion. But my wife deems me sitting next to her as quality time, even if I'm mentally lost in a game world and not watching tv with her. So going to another room might not sit well with her. We've barely been married a year so maybe with time it will. Thanks for the advice guys.

Enjoyed the CagCast! The Tokyo Game show doesn't sound like what I imagined at all from Cheapy's description, and I'm saddened to hear that it's more about phones than consoles

i think that your recording strategy was perfect this episode. Cheapy, make sure that you guys have "Skype problems" from now on when it comes to Wombat. His negativity and curmudgeonly ways bring the show down. when he's constructive, you guys are at your best. unfortunately, he usually just bitches and moans.
Love you guys. keep up the good work
