Merry Christmas guys.

It's a little disappointing that the Wii U game pad does have lag as a universal remote. But at least that's understandable and a software update can't fix. I'm amazed that the Wii Remote could act like a universal tv controller back when the Wii TV Channel was still on. I guess the TVii is just an improvement on that, though it might be even better one day.

What is the tv/movie match app that Cheapie was talking about for searching through Hulu / Netflix / etc? I couldn't understand what he was saying.

Wombat,
During the Fat Albert discussion, you mentioned Weird Donald. There was Weird Harold, and Dumb Donald. Kind of sad that I still remember that.

Thanks for all the great pocdasts in 2012. You guys came 7th out of 60 on the NeoGAF Podcast of the Year poll which is a very respectable finish.

Persona 4 Golden is the reason to own a Vita, but I don't know if any of you guys would really get into it. Maybe Shipwerck would if he had 80 hours to spare.

I've already played Persona 4 on PS2. Really good game, but way too long for me to play it again on Vita.

Yeah, I dunno if I want to revisit that game when it will be mostly the same content.

And I'm surprised by Cheapy's complaints about USB cables. I use an extension cable that I bought on mono price on my Ps3 controllers.

The price of the Vita vs NeoGeoX feedback:

People need to remember that in addition to the Vita hardware itself, you also need to pay for the overpriced memory cards and buy the games separately.

For the NeoGeoX, you get a bunch of games included with the handheld. Sure it's a "meganerd" device cuz of the price but it's not a bad value if you plan on buying all the games on Wii VC or in those SNK compilation disks. But yea, it's a novelty for a niche audience and should be viewed that way.

Wombat was pretty spot on.

PS3 controller should work with any mini USB cable, you can buy a 6 foot amazon one for like $5.50 on amazon.

Or you can buy a charging dock (I bought one for $15 a couple of years ago) and alternate. Play one until it goes dead, then put the dead one on the charger, and pull the fresh one off the charger.

edit 1:
On the PS store redesign, when I first installed it, it was slower, but I think in the interim they have improved the performance. What annoys the hell out of me about it is they took all this time to rebuild the interface from the ground up and they didn't add any way to filter or sort your "my downloads" list.

I still heartily disagree with Cheapy wanting batteries in the PS4 controller. I much, much prefer the PS3's charging system to the 360's. Having to buy batteries or a rechargeable battery pack/charging station is not something I want to do. Plugging in the controller every now in then while playing is not a inconvenience to me in the slightest. Is Cheapy's issue not being able to be close enough for the cord to reach the controller? I can't fathom any other issue with this...

EDIT: It's funny to me that Wombat mentioned the Pitch Perfect movie - my family watched that on Christmas (mom's choice). And we all hated it, even my mom, who loves music. So... it's not for every music lover.

Also, about XCOM... when my friends and I played, we created a squad of each other. And if one of the guys died, we would just reload. Yeah, I guess it's a cheap way of playing, but we didn't care. Like Wombat said, losing a leveled up guy and then having to use rookies sucks. So we didn't bother with that, and just reloaded on a death.

Last edit: What was with the ending music? It played over you guys talking.

Great show as always guys. I hate to say it but I was in the "is Wombat leaving" camp due to his starring on another podcast but I figured what the heck; cheapy seems to be happy with Wombat promoting this other show on CAG so Wombat must be one of those dudes who is happy juggling two balls err podcasts at once. Of course, that didn't stop me from having a fantasy about Cheapy and Ship interviewing potential Wombat replacements from the ranks of CAGers but whatever.

@Wombat

Would you recommend for people to attend cooking demonstration shows like the one you went to but with straight tickets as opposed to having the VIP treatment you had? I.E. were the ticket holders drinking beers and sampling the food too or was it just the VIP back stage passers who got the goods? I don't think I would want to pay to watch a celebrity chef cook and not be able to sample any of what she/he was cooking. That said, my significant other has been needling me to take her to a celebrity chef cooking demonstration for some time now...

@Jasper

Have to agree with you dude. I have a launch PS3 SIXAXIS that still works/charges fine. I probably have two other dualshocks that were paid for via my not having to replace batteries like I do with the 360 controller. Sounds like somebody should have bought Cheapy a charging station cradle for xmas.

@Lik

I'm sorry bud but no way the NeoGeoX has more value than the Vita. 1st: Most popular NeoGeo games are available on the PSN and while I don't know if they're made playable on Vita, yet, they eventually will be coming to Vita. While no Vita games are going to be coming to NGX. 2nd. It appears that all Vita bundles going forward will include a 4GB memory card or at the very least you can get the 4GB card dirt cheap. 3rd: Playstation Plus.

Like I said, the NeoGeoX is purely a niche item for nostalgia and collectors. Wombat was correct that the Vita is expensive for the masses as whole even with the "dirt cheap" memory cards and PS+ sub. I am not comparing them directly as competition against each other.

Ok fair 'nuff. Of course, I'm coming from the perspective of a CAGcast listener who wants to get Vita news instead of hearing buddies wax nostalgic over a new system that plays 20 year old games that I can barely remember playing in the arcade back in the 1990s.

Thanks for the show guys!

First let me say that I've tried to listen to other podcasts, like bombcast, and they have 4+ people all talking over each other. I don't like that podcast, jumbled mess with 30-min talks of a crap game I don't care about. You 3 were always great with your dynamic. 6th place on neogaf? Well that's gaf for you, CAGcast top podcast imo.

But this episode, you guys had a lot of "talking over each other" with interruptions, etc. It was a bit distracting, then awkward pauses as a result waiting to see if others would chime in. I'll say it was probably due to Shipwreck+Wombat getting new mics, that repeat what you say in your headphones? Maybe you should turn that off. I've noticed Cheapy was the only one to do it in previous CAGcasts, hearing yourself could be distracting when trying to get a feel for when your other co-hosts want to chime in. Other podcasters are usually in same room and still fail, so take my input with a grain of salt :)

P.S. Batteries in your controllers in 2012-2013, you are insane. WiiU does it even more wrong, but that's another issue. Just charge the controller you are not using, then swap them as charge goes down. You said you had 2, this should be a non-issue for you.

FYI on the 360 you can plug it in to charge it as well with the play and charge kit. It does cost more, but I like having the option to do what I want - charge by cord or not. I also prefer the 360 version because I don't want to have to take my controller apart to change the battery when it won't hold a charge.

Also, my launch PS3 controllers (no rumble) won't hold a charge. Maybe due to the fact that I don't play PS3 as much and the battery doesn't get used as much, or would that make it last longer - I don't know, but if it is due to not using it, this may explain why some people's batteries don't last as long.

Good show. I don't understand the love for the walking dead. The story is good but that doesn't make up for the lackluster gameplay. I know its easier to tell that kind of story in a point and click adventure game but the walking dead story with Dead Rising or Dead Island gameplay would be awesome.

When I was younger, I had a GBA. Making sure that thing had working batteries was a pain in the ass. Then, I got the DS. Wow, what an improvement! If the battery was getting low, I'd just plug it into the wall and I could keep on playing. Nowadays, I am still annoyed with having to use batteries.

The PS3 does it right! If I am playing a game and the controller starts to die, I just plug it in and can continue playing. With the Xbox 360, I have to pause the game and search the house for new batteries. Or, I have to go check to see if any of the rechargeable batteries are charged and switch them out. But, those seem to disconnect on me for no reason, and they never last as long.

I got so annoyed with batteries in my wireless Xbox 360 controller, that I went out and bought a wired controller. Best decision ever! Putting batteries in the PS4 controllers would NOT be an improvement, but a downgrade.

They sold rechargeable battery packs that you could charge with a cord, just like a ps3 controller. Honestly this is the way to go because if the battery starts to go bad, you can replace it easily, unlike the PS3 battery. That said, the PS3 batteries on my 07 system are still doing just fine.

Cheapy, although I have to disagree on controller batteries, I completely understand your stance. You've got a sweet-ass home theater setup with your console half a mile away from your couch, and when the controller dies, you wanna just swap out a battery dealy and keep going. But if you love me, ya gotta get get those USB cables for your PS3.
