For gamers arriving late to the scene, which current-gen system (Cube, PS2, or XBox) would you most recommend and why?

Nice question! That would be a very good topic to discuss considering how cheap most of the games are for all three of those systems.

Once you start playing 360, PS3, Revolution, you won't want to go back to Xbox, PS2, & GC games. I say enjoy the current games now at bargain prices until that "monster, buy the system NOW" game comes along. I'll be playing mine for at least another year. I've kept up a list of games to still play over the past few years and I'm still almost 80 deep to go in this gen.

How about a transcript (thread) of the CAGcast for those of us who have been cursed with dialup.

Before everyone says just get a better conection. I live way out in the country and dial up or Satelite are all I can get.

For both Cheapy and Wombat:

If you had to develop a fairly original game for the DS or Revolution, what would you have in mind?

With the Nintendo's next system looking to change the way we game, in your expert opinions: over the years of home gaming, what controller change (or revolution if you will - har, har) has had the biggest impact on gaming?

In my un-expert opinion, I would say Nintendo using the original D-pad, pretty much every system since has had one, even the Revolution controller is going to keep the thing...

Arcades in the United States have become a very small niche market. Do you think the arcade could make a comeback or will our grand children stare at us funny when we mention an arcade machine?

Does Wombat like RPGs?

Does CheapyD want to see a really good Hockey game be released?

And if Thorbahn's internet access was down for a week, would he be allowed to call in a question?

Since both of you were early 360 adopters, here’s a smart-ass, semi-relevant question: In the event that your Xbox 360 power supply overheated and set your apartment ablaze, which three gaming-related items would you hope to save from the towering inferno that ensued?

1.Has there ever been a game that got a bunch of great reviews and people talked about it being "the bomb" but when you played it, you thought it was boring? If so which game and why did you think it was boring?

2. Do you find yourself having more trouble getting underground deals (penny guides, coupons, etc) from female clerks then you do with male clerks?

3. E3 is slowly coming up. What are your plans this year? May I suggest a booth with a pet the Wombat exhibit and Mrs. CheapyD in booth babe gear. ;)

Cheapy & Wombat, since you are both married, what's the one moment that sticks out in your mind where your wife has gone out of her way to embrace your dorkdom?

Mine would have to be that my Groom's cake at our wedding was actually in the shape of an Xbox. There are pictures of us actually cutting our wedding cake with a large orange flavored Duke controller sitting right beside it.

(I'll have to scan in some pictures later.)

Dear Cheapy,
No mention of Star Wars Empire at War. I'd think one of you would be enough of a Star Wars fan to at least mention that newly released game in passing. Especially since the game was game by a company who were part of the team that made the classic Command and Conquer. (Kane is still my favorite Video game Villian)

What game have you played for hours and endless hours on just the internet multiplayer (besides Halo 2). Like example I use to play the hell out of Tony Hawk UnderGround on the PS2.
I decided against buying some things I bidded on a lowball auction. Didn't know it'd be a big problem. Sue me.

Made out of Solid Gold. It's own HDTV. Or more realistically the ability to play movies on hdtv's with only the component cables that HDDVD and Blueray have just cut according to news reports. Both have just cut the already small HD market into smaller increments through that decison.

What effect, if any, will the rumored (EDIT:now official) delay of the PS3 have on the next-gen gaming market? Specifically, do you believe it will give Nintendo an upper hand? Though Iwata-san is currently hot to have the Revolution on store shelves this November, would such a delay give Nintendo enough wiggle-room to be more leisurely with the console’s launch?

Better amend that question to "the official delay of the PS3"

Cheapy and Wombat,

Has any of your wives ever just shut off one of your consoles or handhelds while you were playing? If so, what is the reason? And what game was it and how far was it since your last save point? What about your moms when you were younger? Did it piss you off? And what did you do afterwords?

Shouldn't cheapassgamer.com be run by people with a little less cash than CheapyD and Wombat? They seem to have quite a bit of disposable income. I mean, $70 for a remote? You guys are loaded!
