what up, nerds.

theres a lot of unpleasant unpleasant thoughts and murky details woth the idea of console streaming, but a game download of some sort will still be required, right?

that's got to push down digital marketplace prices, especially if any of the big 3(or two) will have release day availability like PC, which are usually $10-15 less.

thoughts?

i really hope the ps4 controller cheapy tweeted is inaccurate, because nintendo has the whole interactive/rediculous thing cornered.( i spoke too soon)

With Diablo III announced for PS3 and 4, is an Xbox cross-generational release a given?

hey guys
Do you guys think that M$ will do anything like sony or will they wait till e3 for any announcements? Also do you think that the next gen launches will be the same as the past or will there be any Triple A launch titles for either console?

So with all of the PS4 remote play oppurtunities with the Vita, will/should the PS4 come with a Vita? Or at the very least will there be a PS4-Vita bundle?

What do you guys think about the whole facebook/social networking integration into everything lately? I just heard about the PS4 going to use facebook integration for your friends list and practically a majority of phone games now use facebook integration and even websites are connecting everything together. Yes it is "convenient" but I have an issue with the privacy aspect of this. I mean you guys are well known internet gaming celebrities but for us peasants I kind of feel like this is going too far. Without integration it becomes more difficult to find friends because I don't want to use my friends list or just in general I am individual that would like to keep my internet/gaming and real life separate.

Even if I make a dummy facebook account it would be pointless if it doesn't integrate with friends I already have. I think I'm just worried about the consequences of everything being integrated in one and the fact that some people just don't want to share EVERYTHING about their lives.

But what do you guys think of almost all this technology just becoming integrating into one aspect. All websites, gaming consoles, apps, phone games, everything just becoming one facebook connected clusterfuck.

What's the deal with Destructoid? They promote the CAGROCKS code on Amazon, but can't even be bothered to mention CheapAssGamer. Are they butt-hurt about something or what?

What is your opinion on game reviewers who obviously have no clue about the game they're reviewing?

Two recent examples:
Aliens: Colonial Marine - EGM review: http://www.egmnow.co...lonial-marines/

MGR - Revengence: http://www.playstati...nce-review-ps3/


Yes yes, everyone is entitle to his/ her opinion, however, these people also have a responsibility - and I'm not talking about 'warning' consumers about bad products.

I'm talking about Bonus payments in the gaming industry being linked to certain metacritic scores.
All of a sudden a competent developer can't get that money, because Jimmy Zithead decided to write review about a certain game and simply bash it to get pageviews...


So anyways - if you could talk about this,
would really make my day :)

I was wondering how far you guys got in Assassins Creed 3. Like Cheapy, this was one my most anticipated games of the year. However the more I played it, the more it pissed me off -(due to a variety of reasons such as instafail quests, far too many collectibles to even bother with, unremarkable scenery, that ending....) It's really soured me on a series I once really enjoyed. What do you guys think?

Wombat, how long did you practice Bane's voice from Dark Knight Rises? Your random Bane interjections in recent shows really crack me up, I wish Bane made a regular random weekly appearance.

Gentlemen,
My launch 360 died on me after just one year of conservative use. The new one is still kicking, but it's so loud that when it's on, I can't hear the phone ring. So its days are definitely numbered. And just last month, my launch PS3 suddenly croaked after 6 years of moderate use, forcing me to buy a super slim. I learned the hard way that you can’t trust your system. Do regular backups or you’re screwed! Thank God for cloud saves! I have been a gamer for almost 30 years and I currently have every system I’ve ever owned. Amazingly, all of those systems still work. The NES still boots up when I want to slug it out in Mike Tyson’s Punchout. I occasionally still dabble in some Panzer Dragoon on my launch Sega Saturn. The Genesis, the Super NES, the Turbografx, the PSone, the Xbox...you name it, they all still work. Even the mother fucking Virtual Boy (yes I have one!) boots up!

My point is, as great as this last generation was for software quality, I feel that it was just horrendous for hardware reliability. I am hopeful that the next generation of systems can redeem my faith in the hardware. Until this current generation, I have never had to buy a system more than once. I want a system that I can turn on and not fear that it will suddenly die in the middle of a game or Netflix movie. What is the number one flaw that plagued consoles this generation that you would like to see Sony and Microsoft correct for the next generation?

Hey CAGcast,

Have you ever watched Conan O'Brien and his "Clueless Gamer Reviews"? He has done Halo 4, and his latest is Tomb Raider. His comments are funny and a bit ironic considering the new "reboot" aimed to tone down Lara's sexuality.

Thoughts on Bioware regarding both this video and my feeling that if DA 3 doesn't do Skyrim numbers EA may just shut them down?

Two Random question for the Cagcast.

What game did you (or still) enjoy playing from this generation that most people generally disliked? For example, I still love to play Shadowrun for Xbox 360 with some of my close friends. I know the game didn't do great due to it being a $60 multiplayer only, counterstike-esque game. Regardless, I always find it a blast to play with the little community it has left, even with its flaws.

And on the other side of that, what game could you never get into despite the fact that the majority of gamers out there loved it?

I am approaching my 100 episode listening to you guys Woo hoo. Love the show. You guys are too funny. I was watching wkrp in Cincinatti and I thought of Shipwreck. LOL

A few things.

I think you guys should do a mid year review of the games released and then compare them to the latter half of the year. I say this because when listening to your top list you guys seemed to gravitate towards latter released games.

What a difference a microphone makes. LOL Wombat no longer sounds like the Lou Holtz of cagcast.

I have been gaming almost 35 plus years. IMO the Wii U is dead.

My launch system is still in the box. It has gone the way of the N64 a system that is out their and will only get a limited amount of 3rd support with the scattered hot first party releases.

Nintendo is almost at the sega (software only) door. Even the diehard fanbase is eroding.

Sony is doing all the right stuff now. IMo they need to release the system at a loss. No more 400.00 \ 600.00

Like the ps2 pre release conference years ago 299 get the base built up. I remember when sega was trying to cut into nintendos stronghold. A few months after their launch they offered a free controller and a game with the purchase of the genesis.

In a way it is sad to see where we are headed because I want them all to do well because when they win we win.

I will say I do miss the in your face console war ads. People were playing for keeps.

A while back, a CAG asked if Japan was secretly boycotting (this came up around the time where toys r us in Japan had stopped selling the 360) the Xbox 360, and Cheapy, indicated that how that wasn't so and pointed out some issues as to why the 360 wasn't doing well in Japan.

What does the new Xbox need to do to have success in Japan.
Do you think the new Xbox will sell better in Japan than the Xbox 360?

Not really a question but a 'remark' :P

Listening to old episodes and currently on CagCast #180 and I got to say - WOW Wombat!


Everyone talks about the ECA controversy (Amazon codes and such).

And Wombat basically demands from Cheapy to write some letter to the Head of the ECA in such an obnoxious way - it's unbearable. He goes on for a minute or so and when then asked by Cheapy for help in compiling the letter Wombat basically chickens out.

It got better in the recent episodes but man Wombat, but your money where your mouth is.
All talks no walk with you - I can see you during work being a hot air balloon!

Wombat is the Fox News of the CagCast!


I still love you :P

Yeah this gen hardware was pretty horrendous. If i recall some in depth research was done and Ms knew at there one specail launch party where dam near every one would get a console that their was a high probablity of failure.

The did an admirable job (I wonder how much that cost them) I am currently using the halo 3 console no issues yet. Interestingly enough for the first time ever a nintendo piece of hardware failed on me and that was my wii mote. Very very limited use it just stopped working. I was floored.

Like you I own just about every console a my vectrex and all others fire up with no issues. Even the dreamcast.

So EA only gives a game (DS3) 1 month of sales before deciding to can that franchise?

Are consumers finally catching on that games are going on sale much faster now than in the past?

I know it was Black Friday pricing, but Borderlands 2 was out 2 months and was $25 and Forza Horizon had only been out 1 month and was $15.

Hey Cheapy, Wombat, and Shipwreck,

As you may or may not know, Polygon has a fluid review system that lets them adjust review scores as the game evolves post-launch, which is a good idea in theory. Today, however, they adjusted the review score of Sim City today on its launch day, which is one day after the review was posted yesterday. It dropped from a 9.5 to an 8 due to launch day server issues, but the bigger issue is about why they decided not to postpone the review a day so that they could play the game on actual launch servers that the public would be using and pounding into submission as expected. This seems like more of an abuse of their fluid scoring policy to cover the mistake of not testing an online game with public servers than taking a second look at a game as post-launch updates are released. What are your thoughts on how this whole thing is playing out and what Polygon needs to do to ensure that they get their reviews done right first without invoking this clause to let them change the score when they forgot to give the games their due diligence?

Hey guys, have you noticed how frequent the sales of Xbox Live subscription cards have been lately? It wasn't that long ago that they raised the annual cost to $60, but it seems like the cards are going for $30 to $40 all the time now. Do you think this hints at a drop-off in Live memberships as the current gen is winding down? Or is Sony taking a bite out of the pie with Playstation Plus and its free games? I'd like to know if you see anything significant in all these Live membership sales.

I agree with Thorbahn. Maybe it's console fatigue setting in, or the numerous delays, but I'm feeling the same way.

I'm sure Shipwreck will play it, but are Wombat and Cheapy going to pick this up on day 1?

Hey Cheapy,

I just started getting into hockey the past few weeks but still don't really know much about it. I wanna play one of the NHL games to get more into hockey but don't want to drop $60 on a sports game. Would you recommend picking up NHL 12 on the cheap (on Amazon for about $18 right now) or waiting for NHL 13 to drop in price? Which is the better game? Thanks.
