Sorry Cheapy, but Wombat owned you in your argument about Metacritic and Amazon. He was even on point with the counter-slam you when you brought it back up. Great show.

I agree. Cheapy also pulled out some classic douche argument tactics such as saying "I don't know why you are getting so upset about this" and claiming he didn't say things he clearly said.

I love the CAGcast. It's one of my favorite moments of every week. I listen to a few different podcasts but the CAGcast is always a priority listen. I also listen to a few different podcasts on the Adam Carolla network. I only mention that because:
 
Amazon affiliate links. Every episode, they're always advertising "click through our site to Amazon to support us". I was wondering if it would help out the CAGcast/CAG if you were to do the same? I would love to click through an affiliate link before I buy nipple butter or diaper cream for my wife and baby. The GoDaddy ads are getting really awkward. It's clear you're not making much from them and clearer still that GoDaddy just has a gross feel to it for far too many reasons.
 
P.S. That Diving Bell guy is what's wrong with everyone on the internet. For fuck's sake, chill out.
 
P.P.S. That Diving Bell cover design is brilliant.
 
edit: I forgot to mention that I buy $1,000s through Amazon for my employer every year. I click through Adam Carolla links but I would really rather that money go to Cheapy.

Ugh Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic are both homes for pretentious overly critical and negative journalism. It drives me nuts how harsh game critics are becoming to match their movie brethren. It seems like the negative reviews are highlighted for being "critical" when really they are just whining or complaining about most small things. Mario 3d world, same formula done over again, infamous second son, too short, diablo 3, too repetitive after they spend 50+ hours with the game. Apparently everything now has to be a masterpiece or it's just a dissapointment. It makes reviewers and critics sound like whiny spoiled brats. Well any ways just tired of all the negative criticism. I enjoy many games, movies and systems but find peoples reliance on meta critic and rotten tomatoes to be very disheartening. Lots of people enjoy Adam sandler movies, bioshock infinite, and the wii u, etc

Good show.
I am not a fan of the metacritic score on amazon. I am not a fan of metacritic ratings to begin with. Having a low score next to a game will deter people from buying it. I don't see how this will be good for amazon at all.

I think it works both ways.  I can think of a few pretty decent games that have a crap ton of horrible user reviews from the loud  minority for reasons that don't have a ton to do with the game or average person.

ESO seemed kinda cheesey and generic the little bit I tried of it.  I think it will be a big bomb as a subscription MMO.

 

I didn't see anything there that cried out this is the next step in MMOs.  I'm not seeing the $15/month going over well with the console crowd on top of paying $60 for the game.

What's the review for the FireTV going to be like next week?  

 

Well it plays Netflix.  And Amazon on Demand.  It is small and has a remote that does the job and I like talking to it.  It only doesn't understand what I say 1/4 of the time.

 

You gotta buy the controller otherwise ....yawn city.

Yeah, that is true but it's easier to ignore the amazon reviews since it's much smaller on the screen. I don't even look at amazon reviews for games, movies and music. It is mostly useful for everything else though.

Even though there's no mention of it anywhere, Goat Simulator definitely supports the 360 controller.  I've never not used it.  I think having to figure out what's mapped to it is part of the tongue-in-cheek tongue-on-protesters charm.

When you really think about it; all joking aside the Dick Kain experience is actually what's going to be the driving force for compelling Virtual Reality content and the in game format doesn't have to include any of the traditional gaming tropes to be successful.  No more chasing high scores or boss fights are necessary.  Imagine VR experiences such as: Climb Mount Everest, Explore Paris, Drinking and Fighting in Irish Pubs,  Welcome to Toontown or Roman Orgy.  Once AI technology reaches the point where you can have an interesting conversation with a digital character...Zuckerberg's $2 billion dollar gamble will have paid itself off many times over.

They can do this in games now.  What do you think SkyRim is?  It's climb mt Everest, explore Paris and drinking and fighting in Irish pubs rolled into one.  

 

Putting on a helmet doesn't change much.  It gives you head tracking and more all around vision, but otherwise nothing else is going to magically change.

 

Ironically the Wii U does some of this Diving Bell 2-player stuff and it has tours of real life locales for a $1 or $2.  The controls are a combination of looking on your tv screen and using a joystick and/or using your Gamepad screen to look around.  It isn't animinated, but it uses Google Streetview tech.

Wombat appears to be right about Titanfall. The 360 version just came out, and yet there's barely any chatter about the game on the internet anymore. I think a lot of people were expecting some Call of Duty Big Red One cheap knockoff, but it appears the game is actually pretty solid. It seems that Microsoft might have delayed and buried it simply because it was too good that people might not see the need for the Xbox One version. The result, however, seems to be that the internet buzz is dying off quickly for both versions.

When is it too late to put out a patch for a video game? The reason I ask is that PlayStation All Stars had a huge patch come out, but the game has been out for almost a year and a half. I just don't quite understand why Sony would put money into the resources to create it. Am I missing something?

Maybe they intend to launch a PS4 version including all the DLC and they want to hammer out and test all the balance issues first on the PS3 version? Or maybe they intend to launch it for PS+ and they wanted to iron out all the kinks ahead of time so there wouldn't be huge patches for the vita version.

Perhaps. He was clearly right about Infamous having more appeal on the PS4 as the first big exclusive after launch than it ever did on the PS3.  It's already sold over 1 million copies in just nine days.

I wonder when we will get a sales number for Titanfall.  It's been out for a month now and I haven't heard anything from EA or Microsoft.

I expected this. They will wait until it's out on 360 and lump the sales number into 1 to make it look big. Might backfire a bit since they delayed the 360 version, is anyone still interested?
