I first want to say that I love your podcast and this is the first time I am commenting. You bring up new and interesting viewpoints in an engaging manner. My question is, "Do you think that games like COD and BF should scrap their sometimes sub-par single-player in favor of an even better multiplayer experience?" While games like Halo have a great single-player as well as multiplayer, other games may do better by expending all resources on perfecting multiplayer. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on this.

I just read this story here posted on reddit, http://www.reddit.co..._park_jeep_and/. Basically a guy who owns a super sweet Jurassic Park themed Jeep loaned Telltale Games to use for Promos at PAX. It ended being heavily damaged in transportation since Telltale went against their agreement and shipped it via non-enclosed transport. Now the guy is stuck with a damaged Jeep and Telltale won't do anything about it.
My question is a lot of the members of reddit are upset and are canceling their pre-order and vowing not to purchase the game until Telltale corrects this problem with the owner of such an awesome Jeep (me included). Do you think this will have any affect on it's sale if this story gets picked up on bigger outlets (Joystiq,Kotaku,etc...)?

Is it time to bring back WW2 era?
Has it been long enough or should the next wave be another war era?
Perhaps a future but not like an aliens & nerdy future because people love the realism era?
What do you guys think will be the evolution of realistic FPS?
Thanks & I love the show.

I'm gonna hit Peter Luger Steakhouse this month and due to your expert knowledge on steak, I was wondering how dry aged USDA Prime beef from NY's best compares to top of the line Kobe beef?

I know you've stated Tai watches you play games, but does he play any, or has he not yet reached the right attention span yet (Not saying that Tai doesn't have the attention span required, just that I have some friends with kids who say they're just not ready yet when I asked about their kids starting gaming)? I was wondering, if Tai hasn't started playing games, would you start him off on the Atari or NES, and work your way up to gain a higher respect for today's games / game history / gaming in general? Just wondering. I think that would be kind of cool. Then again, that's a lot of work / consoles.

EDIT: I began listening to the original shows. Man how far you've come from that first 6 minute show. But I'm guessing the Shipwreck I'm hearing about in the Cagbag and forums is the one I've come to love on the Cagcast. So at least that answers one of them...

Haven't you figured it out yet fanboys? Your mommy can't afford both consoles! Be grateful with what you got and shut the up.

Will Wombat and Shipwreck also dabble in the vlogging?
Oh, and Cheapy, I think I remember a mention of the Head Blade. Have you used it? And what do you use to shave near your ears? I nicked myself while shaving that off.
Thanks and keep up the great work.

Three questions in the hope that one will get answered...
Who is super programmer John?
Cheapy mentioned he lent some ideas to a Destructoid pax panel regarding how to start/manage a website. Anything you can share with us Caggers?
Why is Shipwreck playing office politics and trying to push Wombat out of the cagcast by making snide remarks about him and sucking up to cheapy? He steals skylanders so wombat can`t write a review, criticises Wombats writing, holds back laughing at wombats jokes, shows fake interest in Tai stories....

Why do you think that the price of dlc never goes down? I can buy Fallout 3 GOTY Edition and get the game and all the dlc for $20.00, but if I were to buy the dlc alone off of xbla, it would cost me $50.00. Shouldn't the price of dlc deteriorate over time?
I know this is a question thread, but I'd like to hear a discussion on this also.
This is one of the reasons I don't like and am afraid of "Digital Distribution" games and prefer physical media. Stores have to move their inventory while XBLA/PSN/WiiWare don't have to and we are stuck with whatever price they fix it at.

Daniel here, cagcast fan since around episode 150...
1. concerning your recent voice acting adventure, how do you feel about doing more in that vein? Was it fun, might it be another potential career? I don't need to tell you that you have a cool voice, and with your podcast, I think you have all the equipment you need to record some quick semi-pro voices, or hit a nearby studio for AAA stuff?
2. As a fulltime composer and - more relevant - sound designer (75 games so far) I hire voice actors all the time. I can give you paid jobs every now and then in case you are interested. This week alone I have voice actors working for me on 3 different games, often just a few takes. It's not all huge, of course, many are Iphone games, browser games, non-AAA PC games (whatever pays the bills hehe), but we are also working on a console game scheduled for 2013, and as a composer I work for the soundtrack company who worked on Crysis 2, Alan Wake, Halo Legends... (but that's only music, sorry

I just wanted to check on Wombat's vagina and see if it's still bleeding. It's been a rough couple weeks with him not getting Skylanders sent to him and pouting about being accused of not being funny.

Do you have any memories of GamePro that you'd like to share?
What are your thoughts on the South Park RPG being developed by Obsidian? (The same studio that developed Fallout: New Vegas.) What other TV series would you like to see made into legit role-playing games? (I think Breaking Bad would be fun.)
