Immediately after recording, I got to levels in Naruto Powerful Shippuden where you actually move along environments that are bigger than a screen. So disregard what I said on the show about that.

Great show, guys.

About your "cagrocks" coupon, next time you should just change the coupon name to "cheapassgamer.com" and bypass any BS from other sites.

Paths of Exile does look awesome. Maybe we can get some CAG multiplayer action going?

And if you have any leftover super house of the dead ninja codes for the pc left, I'll take one. Thanks!

I find it odd that Shipwreck would get Tomb Raider on Steam. He's so giddy for the game, I figured he'd want a physical copy for his collection, not to mention the Collector's edition Lara Croft figurine. Is he going to get rid of his game collection and go all digital?

There's no ruling out that I won't run out and scoop up a collector's edition for the console as well. That's certainly happened before. I generally try to get whichever version of the game is the best one and with Tomb Raider I think the graphics on the PC will give it the edge.

As far as possible show improvements, I would like to hear your opinions on more gaming accessories. For example, do any of you play XBLA games from memory sticks and what brands work best for you? What headphones do you use/recommend? Do you use a portable speaker or bluetooth controller for I-phone/I-pad gaming? You could make this a semi-monthly feature entitled something like "buy-use- touch-stroke- this bitches." Hell, why not have a full-on man-cave section where you discuss anything from the beer or liquor consumed while gaming to any particularly comfy furniture you have in your game room?

Also, I would love to get a code for super house of dead ninjas. Peace-out broseph!

Will not be purchasing anymore from PSN if they can not be transfered to PS4. What about PSN+? Can this transfer over? What about games that we currently have through PSN+? I guess I'll just let my subscription run out until I hear otherwise.

I don't understand the continued paranoia about used games on the PS4 with everyone trying to find a negative interpretation of what Sony said.

When asked specifically about used games:

“When you purchase the disc based games on PS4, that should work on any hardware,” Shuhei Yoshida

"That's the general expectation by consumers," Yoshida told Eurogamer. "They purchase physical form; they want to use it everywhere, right? So that's my expectation."
Yoshida added: "So, used games can play on PS4. How is that?"


Also the quote that Wombat was referring to was specifically in answer to a question about online registration. So publisher's can continue project $10 for online play, but Sony has specifically said their games won't.



Combine all those statements and only the tin-foil hat brigade could seriously believe Sony is going to implement a system to block or make you pay extra for a used game. Never mind that it would have to be an always online system, so they'd be throwing away one third of the market to start, with the always impending disaster of a PSN meltdown preventing people from playing their games. Imagine a repeat of the 24 days that PSN was down in 2011.

Last time I was in Japan I spent a lot of time shopping for video games in Akihabara and inevitably walked into a store selling literally tens of thousands of child modeling DVDs. It was right alongside the Chuo-dori too, so it's not like you had to enter some obscure alleyway to find it. Anyway, I snapped a few pics so I could show my friends the kind of crazy shit you can get away with in Japan. These should give people an idea what CheapyD was talking about:

(technically SFW, but I'm sure you can decide for yourself whether you wanna see these or not)

Most of them were Asian girls (many of them probably not from Japan), but there were a few of those Russian girls in there as well. Will probably check out that documentary at some point.

It's the fact that they are being so evasive about it, cloaking everything in lawyer-speak is what sets off gamers' spider-sense. He says used game CAN play on PS4, he doesn't say whether there will be a pay wall to make it happen. Though I would agree there is not much point in dwelling on it at the moment as we don't know for sure.

So I am to understand that a documentary crew followed the girls along on the plane back from Siberia then just sit there and watched the 12 year old girls suffer and break down in the airport without offering assistance when they didn't know what to do next? It always amazes me how the thin veil of the camera lets documentary filmmakers abdicate any feelings of moral responsibility.

Regarding Amazing Spiderman, it still annoys me that Dylan Baker didn't get to bring the Dr. Connors character to the end of his villain arc after 3 movies. After all, they brought Judi Dench over for the Bond remake somehow. and Baker would have been great in that role.

Regarding Star Wars, I am hoping now that Disney owns it we can FINALLY get a proper version of the original trilogy; not non-anamorphic, old laser disc transfers which is what we got on the last OOT DVD release.

I would too like the to be entered into the drawing for the game.

Cheapy and Wombat, I don't know what is wrong with your Xboxes, but in my experience the long booting time is not normal. I have a near launch 360 (February 2006) and I timed the boot up sequence today. 12 seconds of the initial startup (spinning white logo), followed by 9 seconds where my profile is connecting, Kinect is initializing, etc. Less than 20 seconds total and I have control of the dashboard.

That was an amazing amount of Star Wars pinball talk. I think the best moment was when Shipwreck explained that it was better on a portable "because you can take it with you." I was stunned by this analysis.

It was a great show with the exception of having to suffer through the exact same joke every single person in the world makes about THQ. "Cheapy you should buy this. You should buy this." I swear this was on every video game podcast that exists for a solid two months.

Thanks for the tip on the documentary, CheapyD. If I need to get a lady out of the mood so that I can play more video games I'll be sure to put it on.

I also liked hearing about that kid park that Cammie left to work on. I saw her name in an old article about a month ago and thought about how I hadn't heard anything about that endeavor. I guess it's because they aren't in the US.

I'm also interested in Super House of Dead Ninjas.

:lol: 20 seconds, that's an eternity. Plus it's not as if it's some technical limitation of the hardware; the only reason for that spinning white disk is to cover up the time it takes to load new ads into the dashboard.

btw mine takes 28 seconds, on a good day.

My Xbox takes literally 20 minutes to boot up (I timed it) - it's actually driven me to play my PS3 more, and predominately play PC. I want Super House of Dead Ninjas.

Great show guys. A couple things...

Like Shipwreck I too received a free Gillette Mach 3 razor more than 10 years ago and still have it. Actually a lot of people I know also received the same razor for free in the mail as a promotion they had.

Cheapy, last year I had used laser removal for the hair on my neck. I went through 10 treatments, about 1 every 5 to 6 weeks, and wasn't completely satisfied with the results. The thicker the hair the more difficult it is to erradicate it. The hair on my neck has thinnned out and lost it's color pigment so it is difficult to see but it's still there. It will take more treatments to completely get rid of it. Since it wasn't too expensive so I may go back later.

Also Cheapy when shaving, prep is everything. There is definitely something to the hot towel on the face you see in movies/tv.
