How about some love for Julian Hill the guy who will be doing a video game endurance challenge for charity. The interesting part is that his game is Singstar. This should be a bit more of a challenge than playing Super Mario Bros ehh

Anyway, thanks for working hard to avoid the ME3 spoilers. I won't get to it until I polish off ME2...and the vacuum.

So, guys, do you have any other film recommendations? (No documentaries, tho.) Thanks!

Here is a quick summary of the events.....
Goozex is being bought out by SecureLogic Corp, an acquisition company, for $150,000. The previous Goozex management all appear (via LinkedIn) to have new VP jobs at other businesses. The old owners have agreed to an NDA and will not comment on it; the new owners do not appear eager to show themselves on the forums.
SecureLogic does not seem to be the type of company with Goozex's long term interest in mind. There are lots of ways that they could benefit financially from Goozex in the short term, but none of them would appear to be in the best interest of the site or its users. Their past history in particular would indicate that their goal is to cash out quick and move on.

What if all it was really was a way to limit trophies and achievements. Buy a game used? Cannot earn achievements. Maybe this is the next step in achievements, because what if you could then use those achievements to "purchase" DLC. Option one: pay money, option two: spend achievements earned from games purchased new. What do you guys think?
Personally I cannot see a complete used game lock out. Even though it was proven each disc is unique due to the PSP --> Vita disc to digital upgrade over in Japan. If they do lock out used games, they'll have to go the route of Steam/PC. Meaning cheap CHEAP games and tons of deals. Cheap as in the games go for sale commonly for $10-$20. I do not know anyone who pays $60 for a PC game like they do for console games, the digital sales are just so frequent and in your face.
Also, both Xbox and Playstation seem to be pushing digital copies of full games. But with the new consoles on the horizon, how long will they support all the old XBLA titles / PSN games? They want us to go digital, but will not transfer those games to the new console? Seems like failure before launch. Why buy the next gen games digitally, when we know they'll stop supporting them.
Even if your downloadable content doesn’t carry over to your next system, it likely won’t disappear the day the next Xbox or PlayStation is released. According to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter, Microsoft and Sony are likely to offer gamers an extended grace period on content they’ve purchased online. “I think that downloadable games is the smallest part in determining whether to support online for legacy systems,” Pachter told us. “The Call of Duty multiplayer community is likely to remain quite large for at least a couple of years post launch of the next-gen systems, so Microsoft and Sony are highly likely to continue legacy online support for at least two years. I think next-gen systems are coming out in 2014, so support through 2016 for downloadable games should be sufficient for most people.”
No, that is not sufficient. When I paid for it, I thought I was buying it. Not renting it for 2 years. Just another reason next gen cannot go full digital, and never will. PCs are upgradable, consoles are not. We have to buy new consoles every gen, but all your Steam games will stay forever.

Here is a link to the trailer if you haven't seen it:
I am completely with you on R.A.D. I saw that game in a Sam Goody Kiosk when it came out and the scale just blew me away. Never seen a game do that since. Could really use a sequel.

I just released my first game on the itunes app store and I was hoping I could get one of you guys to check it out and if you think it's worth it doing a mini review. The game is called Bounty Bots (here) and best of all it's FREE. Also it is very kid friendly.
Thank you some much for the very entertaining podcast,

Following this thought bubble: Say publisher tactics to eliminate the used game market affects new and used game sales, would this affect CAG? Would a crippled used game market affect CAG?
(I think CAG would prosper while places like GameFly would be in trouble.)

And as a service to us CAGs who haven't played/finished ME3 yet, please do all the spoiler talk at the beginning of the next CAGCast and tell us up front to "fast forward to xx:xx in the show to avoid spoliers". Thanks!

My wife and I are expecting our second child in a few months. Our other child will be 2 1/2 by due date. Do you have any pro-tips for family and game time management with two youngins' in the house?
Don't make decisions when you're angry and don't make promises when you're happy.
