Besides the inevitable better graphics, what existing feature would you like to have explored more?

Do either of you have a custom faceplate for your 360 other than the one that came with the system? If so which one?

Is there any hope that I can continue playing games after I'm married?


Off topic but if there's even a remote chance you won't be able to continue playing games after you get married, don't get married.

Will subscription based games on the PC (like Magic Online, World of Warcraft) ever succeed in a console environment? And would these games be marketable to a console crowd?

Hey guys, I look forward to listening to your show every week. Blue Ray DVD and HD-DVD are about to take part in a media war. I feel cd/dvd technology is starting to be yesterdays news. I know the two new formats offer more memory for better movies and games, but I feel portable memory units like MP3/video players and flash drives are the way of the future. Just look at the popularity of the iPod and the convenience of OnDemand in the cable market, no cd required. Plus, how do you play a BD that is so compressed that a small scratch on the disc will make it useless? The price of the new BDs is another factor. Why would people want to rebuy their whole movie collection all over again on BD? What are your thoughts?

Keep up the good work.

Cheapy/Wombat, what games would you consider to be your guilty pleasure games? You know you have no business playing them, but you can't resist dropping $20 on them and enjoying them alone, in your rooms, late at night, where no one can see you.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

All right gentlemen, a few quick questions while "Mrs. Bazooka" is out...

#1. Mr. Cheapy: Maybe I missed the discussion on this (if there was one) but from your perception over there...why would you say that the Japanese culture isn't really diggin' the XBOX360 too much? Do they hate American companies "invading their market?" Too much hometown love for Sony & Nintendo? Not enough cute, big-eyed, crazy-haired RPGS on the console? ENLIGHTEN US :)

#2. Mr. Wombatty: If you don't mind me asking...what IS your "dayjob?" It has come up in the last few 'casts, & now I'm just curious.

#3. Both Of You: I was having a discussion the other day about USED GAMES...& basically, they accounted for a decent sized chunk (low billion I believe) of video game sales. A lot of the publishers have been pondering on how to either curb this loss in potential revenue, or get a piece of this which both are going to be tough to do...any ideas? I personally can't justify buying used games unless it is something that I'll have a tough time finding new. Why buy a game for like $5-$10 less that looks like it has been "Zelda's Chewtoy" when I can buy it brand-spanking new? Case in Point...the EBGAMES/GAMESTOP news you read last time about how they "may not come with a case or manual." Granted you are just PLAYING the game...but at least I would like it complete. Maybe I'm just being anal about the condition of my games here...

(Semi-Rant Ended)

THANX for the time guys...ADIOS!

Everyone has a hero that they look up to and respect for various reasons. Maybe because they help old ladies across the street, or they rob from the rich or give to the poor, or they donate their Sega Genesis and crates of games to less fortunate gamers. So with this in mind, who is your favorite video game "hero" and why?

This one is more for Cheapy I suppose. With the rampant sucess of the DS in Japan, is there a lot of buzz and excitement for the Revolution or do the Japanese take a more "wait and see" approach on things?

Cheapy - Considering that you have "connections" in the industry, have you considered adding an import/export portion to your site? For example, there's a HUGE demand for DS systems in Japan so why not import US systems to JP? Heck, I'm sure you could even sell some Japanese 360 peripherals here in the US considering the platform's impending doom over there.

I have two this week:
1. What is your target time to have the weekly CAGcasts done ? It kills me when I don't have my cord with me( I listen through my iTunes phone ).

2. Here in my hometown, there are an EB Games and a Gamestop with a few feet of each other. It's been through my experiences that there are more shoppers consistently in the EB store. But on the other hand, G$ has been there longer.
In your opinion(s), which store do you think will be the one to close ?

1. Has there ever been a game that you wanted to play but sadly got cancelled? If so what game?


2. Have you ever thought about a Cagcast only contest? Something like saying a secret password that you PM to Wombat and is chosen through a random drawing.

Hey Guys,

I'm realy "itching" thinking on getting a PSP, a lot lately because of it's all-in-one awesomeness, but now I'm hearing rumors of a "revise" PSP, history shows in the gaming industry that rumors has about 20 percent truth in it. So with you guys "uber" insider knowledge (I know you can't give away to much), but should I wait, or just sooth my itch with a AHHHH SHINY PSP?

Thanks gracing us with your presence, and gaming knowledge each week.

Do you think "virtual reality" will make its way back? This seemed like the direction alot of people thought gaming was going in the 90s, but it never got anywhere. I remember playing a VR fps game at the fair some years back and it was the most immersive game experience I've had, where I moved my head, my in-game view moved, where I moved my "gun", my in-game gun moved.

Do you think the Revolution control is a step in that direction?

firsttime CAGBAGGER.

When Do you think we will start seeing AO rated games in the market place?

Im in no way wanting to play pr0n games on my ps3/360 but looking for real games created for M/AO audiences.

And What is the real difference between "M" And "AO" ?



My opinion is they should be rated like movies are rated and do away with the E,T,M,AO categories. and put in G,PG,PG13,R etc etc.
I think this would help everyone including clueless parents on wether or not to buy a game for little Jimmy or not.

This would also hopefuly put an end to groups who find violence/sex/etc in "videogames" go away and think of videogames just like movies. Made for all audiences and not just little teenage kids.


P.s Having a WAR game like medal of honor have no blood in it is stupid. but its rated T for TEEN.and teens cant be allowed to see blood in a WAR game. although we will let them shoot and kill guys.

Long time listener, first time CAGbagger.

Kind of a "what-if" scenario here... if online digital delivery were to replace physical storefronts in the future, do you think a lot of titles could end up lost in limbo, with no way to ever purchase them again? For example - if a game company went out of business, or a publishing license expired (e.g. Capcom losing Marvel), would the associated games simply VANISH from existence without any secondhand market to accomodate them?

First Time CagBagger here well,
As we are approaching the xbox 360's 6 month birthday what do you think of the direction the console is taking with current/future games, efforts in Japan, and little events like the past Verizon Free Gold Weekend. Also Cheapy while listening to the past CAG the way you were talking made me think you had no job. Is this true is Cheapy unemployed or is CAG your "job".

Wombat..Why wombat? Did you do an extensive research into possible mammals that you might be named? I understand that Naughty Dog, when trying to develop Crash Bandicoot..just grabbed an animal encyclopedia and found the bandicoot.

What is your story?

Also (and I don't want to seem like I'm picking on you) but what is taking you so long to level up and progress through Oblivion?

Nah, I can't accept that he chose wombat because he is hairy as there are many other animals that are equally hairy or even more so. I was leaning towards the answer being that the wombat's naturally range is pretty limited, hence his problems with the wide open spaces of oblivion. :)

Why don't more games for the xbox have a coop mode over live? My buddy got live a couple of months ago, but when i started looking for all the coop enabled game, i was disappointed with how few had this mode....especially a coop campaign option. it seems like whoever makes the decision to leave it out isn't in touch with its customers.
