Wombat will tell you his story of the hurricane; Shipwreck and Cheapy complain they had too much electricity while playing Halo 4 and Assassin's Creed III. Also, Sony is cheap!

There's a spot where you stop driving the warthog, jump up some steps into a pretty narrow area.

Glad you're okay, Wombat. For everyone else who wants to learn more about the LIPA madness: NPR had a good segment on it.

Wombat! You can't just have a Hungry Man on Thanksgiving! I had Thanksgiving alone last year and my mentality was "go big or go home." I had 2 boxes of frozen White Castle burgers, a Digiorno supreme garlic bread pizza, and 3 pints of Ben and Jerrys. So unless you're gonna be eating 3 different Hungry Mans, go out and stock up on unhealthy frozen foods to make this the best Thanksgiving ever!

Welcome back Wombat, nice to have the whole crew again (although it's still enjoyable either way). Not sure if I'll be making it to "brown Thursday" due to the madness that occurred at some of the stores yesterday, but I'll definitely hit up some other stores on black Friday. Also, prize wheel with $9 gift cards!

Wombat glad you and your family are okay. My family and I were without power or water for 4 days. We empathize with you something Cheapy lacked. Cheapy we know earthquakes are popular in Japan; however, hurricanes the magnitude of Sandy are not this side of the east coast in the USA. Love you man but sometimes "the jerk " role is not humorous.

Hey Cheapy, did you upload the cagcast to Zune, yet? It looks like there's two copies of last weeks cagcast there, but not this one.

Capcom makes games that look good but play like shit.

Glad to hear Wombat is doing much better than a lot of people in the area. I'm somewhat surprised the media isn't covering it as much as they did with New Orleans.

Cheapy, what you described for what they should do with Medal of Honor is basically exactly what Unit 13 is for the Vita.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

What he said. Cheapy, Unit 13 is the perfect template of the kind of shooter you describe. You should check it out if you haven't already. It'll breath new life into your vita. :booty:

Not seeing it yet for iOS either. I have Automatic Download turned on, so there must be an issue with the feed or something.

Wombat glad you and your family are okay. My family and I were without power or water for 4 days. We empathize with you something Cheapy lacked. Cheapy we know earthquakes are popular in Japan; however, hurricanes the magnitude of Sandy are not this side of the east coast in the USA. Love you man but sometimes "the jerk " role is not humorous.


To defend Cheapy, his parents had their home destroyed pretty much, and just before they were about to sell it. They'll probably be stuck with it for months or years repairing trying to fix it up. So they had it much worse off than Wombat, and Wombat should feel lucky that he only lost power during all of this. I do feel for Wombat (glad to have you back on CAGcast!), but when there are people much worse off, it's harder to feel sorry for a 10 day inconvenience. At least that's how I interpreted Cheapy's reaction.

Capcom does fall back on Resident Evil too much, but apparently the 3DS (or DS?) one was good, so it still holds some hope. Without talking about DLC, Capcom did do Asura's Wrath and Dragon's Dogma. That's gotta mean something, right?

Great show! It felt much more fluid, and Wombat being back is proof of that :)

Good job not dying Wombat. Solid.

I watched friends play through Halo 4 and rewatched Halo Legends and am really impressed by how they're holding the universe together; thoughts?

Good to hear from Wombat again. Pokedex 3D Pro sounds cool, but $15 is a ridiculous amount of money for that app. I wish Nintendo was more consistent in their prices of E-shop stuff.

Wombat, LIPA really does sound like a turd. Every time after a major natural disaster, blizzard, Irene, Sandy, they always take too long with fixing and explaining things. If they've run out of poles, why the hell haven't they found a way to put power wires underground like in the city?

Cheapy, I think your observations about the beginning of Assassin's Creed III are spot-on and I'm disappointed that so many reviews gloss over the first few hours of this game. They are incredibly slow and the character that you have to play as is not nearly as interesting as past assassins. I hear he becomes an important part of Connor's story but that doesn't take away from the fact that I'm forcing myself to get through the first few sequences which is something I've never had to do with an AC game.

Thanks Cheapy, Ship and Wombat. Glad to hear Wombat is getting back into his normal groove.

I agree that the first few hours of AC3 is pretty slow. I *think* I see their attempt at the payoff later in the game but overall the pacing is just so inconsistent. Combine that with the multitudes of bugs you're bound to encounter, it felt like a disappointment. I still enjoyed it, but my expectations were pretty high for the fifth title in a series. I expected polish out the wazoo and instead I got a Brown Thursday.

Being from Miami and tasting both types of pizza and hotdogs, Cheapy and Wombat are delusional in saying NY style is better than Chicago. For hotdogs every NY one is way to salty, and if you eat a Chicago style one it HAS to be with Vienna Beef which offer a very pleasant "snap" when bitting into them. As for pizza nothing beats a Giordano's stuffed special, one slice and your full for the rest of the day with a smile on your face, unlike NY style that's flimsy and really not even better than the thin crust pizza in Chicago as well.

Welcome back, Wombat! You were indeed missed last week. Not exactly fair of Cheapy to compare Tokyo's disaster preparedness to Long Island's. I feel like Tokyo has had a lot of practice, what with 50-plus years of giant monster attacks.

I always thought the same. I mean, that's the rhyme right?

But hey when is Wombat ever wrong? :razz:

On a serious note- Wombat I'm glad to hear your family is safe and things are starting to go back to normal. Everyone else in NY living through this- our prayers and best wishes are with you.

Kaw is correct, I was misremembering. I like posting about TV Theme show lyrics a lot more than not having power :).
