well the colors have been like this for as long as I have been here. Most of the new games worth playing are on the 360. A couple of episodes back they talked a lot about the DS. I wouldn't worry about them favoring the 360, there really isn't much talk about with the other systems at this current time.

Judging from past CAGcasts, I think it's safe to say that CheapyD has an unheathy obsession with Robocop. So Cheapy, when did this fascination with Robocop first begin? Which of the Robocop movies is your favorite, and also, what is the most extravagant piece of Robocop paraphenilia that you own?

Thanks for answering my previous questions. After listening to CAGbag, it made it much more enjoyable. Also, good job on the impressions guys, haha [the Robocop and Link impersonations were hilarious]. :D. Well, here's another question.

What is your favorite weapon/equipment/item of all time? It could be something like the barf stick from Minority Report, the huge stomper boots from Mario Bros. the Movie, or even the plastic bag from Manhunt used to ruthlessly strangle his pursuers.

Thanks guys ;D. Keep up the good work on CAGcast.

Now that we know for sure that the Wiimote doesn't have as much battery life as the (awesome) Wavebird, do you guys think there'll be a recharger pack (first party).

What about Guitar Hero 2 has you most excited? What kind of features would you like to see in future versions of the game?

How did Cheapy and Wombat meet each other and their wives?

Who's hotter, Mrs. Wombat or Mrs. Cheapy?

Cheapy - I think it is time for a Your Man In Japan field trip.


Thanks to Scorch for pointing this out. We look forward to your review Cheapy. :D

Wombat how much was the extended warranty for the XBOX 360?

MY XBOX 360 should be coming in soon and I tried calling Microsoft to ask them how much it would be and nobody can give me an answer.

Here's a question for Mrs. Cheapy or other Japanese natives:

According to a Nintendo Power article, the Japanese version of the DS game Big Brain Academy measures progress in terms of the brain's softness so that the better you do at the tasks, the softer your brain. This metaphor is the opposite of how we'd see it in English. To us, someone whose brain has gotten soft is someone who's gotten dumber. So, could you ask Mrs. Cheapy and some of your Japanese friends to explain why a soft brain is a good thing in Japanese.

Thanks and keep up the great podcast.

Cheapy D and Wombat, I love your podcast, I always bump it to the top of my playlist when it becomes available. My question:

Here in our forums, as well as over at Joystiq and Kotaku, many gamers have noticed cracks on the left hinge of our DS Lites. Nintendo's official position is that this is user created damage(i.e. we're flinging DSes like drunken spider monkies), not a manufacturing defect. It is NOT covered under warranty, and costs $50 to repair.

What can we do make Nintendo see the error of its ways? Is a class action lawsuit the only way to get them to honor their 1 year warranty? Does this mark the end of durable Nintendo consoles and cause us to reconsider the wiimote?

Corporate buyouts of popular sites are a big thing, I'm worried that CAG will go the way of IGN, or Gamefaqs.

Cheapy, what would it take for you to sell this site? Enough money to supply your gaming habit for four years? Five?

Also, besides CAG site maintance, what other jobs do you hold down? Please squash the Japanese Male Gigolo rumor once and for all ;)

Oh, and Wombat, what are the odds of you buying a $600 (or $500 PS3)?

Are you or Wombat from a particular region of the country with an accent that forces BOTH of you to say MARE-io, like night"mare" Brothers?! And not MAR-io Brothers??? Sorry, I've been listening to the past few CAGcasts and whenever you guys mention Mario, and I hear "Mare-io" it just bugs the hell out of me.

Hey there Cheapy D and Wombat,

First, let me start by saying that I really enjoy your podcast and I think you guys are doing an awesome job! Out of the several podcasts that I listen to, you guys are number one to me. You guys make a great team and you compliment each other well. Unlike other shows (e.g. Major Nelson), the CAG cast is entertaining, informative and extremely funny! I like to listen to the CAG cast at work when I’m toiling away on a project and more than once I have caught myself laughing out-loud; getting puzzled and annoyed looks from my co-workers. Every week I look forward to downloading the newest episode—it’s truly the highlight of my week! Please keep up the good work; you guys are terrific!

Now, I feel I must respond to that proverbial “ass-hat”, Steve from Canada. Please do not think that all Canadians are like this gentleman. Unfortunately, it sounds like Mr. Steve has some sort of oblong shaft thrust into his large intestine and really needs to fall off his “high horse”. Who admits to looking at porn, Steve? I do, you pompous bastard! So there!

Anyway, I didn’t want you guys to get the wrong idea about us Canadians (I bet Steve is from Quebec!) Like I said previously, you guys are awesome!

Now, the purpose of my letter isn’t just to blow sunshine up your collective asses; I do have a question.

In a lot of ways, the XBOX 360 seems to have been the race horse that has stumbled quite a few times coming out of the gate, what with launch system shortages, faulty units, lack of games and LIVE arcade let-downs. Do you feel that the benefits of an early 360 release and head-start against the PS3 have been neutralized by these initial problems?

Thanks guys for a great show and good luck to you Wombat on the repair of your 360! I hope it gets well soon.

Why do you guys need to play your DS while taking a dump? I mean, does it really take that long? For me it takes like 3 minutes to do everything but you guys seem to be in there for an entire afternoon. Also have you played online while plopping one?

Was "Steve From Canada" really just Wombat using an alternate account, attempting to create controversy and increase CAGCast downloads in the process?

You kind of need to listen to the latest CAGcast....

Hey CheapyD and Wombat, I really enjoy the show! keep up the good work. I've got a great contest idea: how about a 'game with CAG-fame' contest? I've always wondered what it'd be like to play with with you guys. You could provide various game choices from various platforms (XBL, DS, PC) that you'd be willing to play as to not limit potential contestants. If you wanted to raise the contest stakes you could even provide the game of choice to the winner! I know this is a total ripoff of the Microsoft's game with fame events, but this would be better since the "fame" would be people CAGs would actually want to game with! Maybe you could even get the guys at Kotaku, Penny-Arcade, ect. involved? This contest would totally get me to write you guys an iTune review! ;) and even if you don't like my idea how about giving me an add anyway? Thanks and keep churning out awesome podcasts from your awesome podcast factory.

Hey Cheapy and Wombat,

It seems to me that Sony really shot themselves in the foot with their decisions regarding the PS3. First it was the boomerang controller, which thank god, they fixed. Now we have the dual-tier pricing, which they should have known from the 360 would be very unpopular, and the $600 price point, which is unacceptable for a mass-market home console. While they will definitely sell out at launch, I can't see them doing well in the following months. They lack major exclusive titles, and the 360 and Wii will have the advantages of being first to market and having a much lower price point, respectively. I think Sony is going to come out last in this generation, at least in the US. What do you guys think Sony can do to help their console in the coming years?

Hey Cheapie and Wombat. Hope you guys are having a super swell day. I'm just wondering with Cheapassgamer being more adult oriented, why is that you decided to turn the f-bomb into Fuck on the forums?

Oh one other thing. Wombat, in a kill or be killed situation, what strategy would you use to try and take out Cheapie D in hand to hand combat?

Hows it going Cheapy and Wombat? Which would you rather see the XBLA evolve into? More original, laid back content like Geowars and Cloning Clyde or resurrections of old games including online competative elements (Street Fighter)?

(I won't even mention things like frogger, galaga, robotron, etc. which almost all of which are available in complations on numerous other consoles)

I was just wondering what your favorite game system of all time is and games along with it? I am a Nintendo fan(not fanboy cause I can see fault in my favorite publisher and call them out on it). I am partial to my SNES and GCN. I have been gaming for around 20ish years. My faves include Metroids(2D), Mario Karts and the F-Zero series. I ask this because I am wondering what molded your gaming habbits and what you guys grew up with.

But now I'm ready for D/P, excited and terrified. It's going to eat so many hours of my life.

I am a pussy :-(
