Who had the bigger boner at Target E3,  Shipwreck or Cheapie?

Can't wait to hear how Shipwreck (who seems to be the voice of reason on this site) justifies that the Nintendo figures don't make sense after he's spent sooo much time talking about Skylanders (that's ONE or TWO games, right??).

 - they can be used with more than one property (can skylanders/infinity do this?)

 

You guys totally slagged off the Sony and Nintendo conferences.

 

I'll keep visisting CAG for the cheapass DEALS (which are hardly even mentioned by the Cagcast), but I think I need to realize the editorial staff is set to favor Xbox / PC stuff for better or worse.

Can you guys finally admit that Nintendo is the best?  Toad has his own game!  No one saw that coming!!  SUCK IT rest of industry.

 

So after E3 I'm moving up my time table for a new console from probably 2015 to really soon.  I'll eventually own all three (I have a WiiU, which I actually really like) but I'm really on the fence for what to get first - PS4 or Xbox One.  What are your thoughts after seeing everything at E3?

General feeling on a lot of sites is Nintendo won E3. Agree/Disagree?

Overlooked by all the E3 news, Alienware got tired of waiting for Steam OS and changed one of their Steam Machines into a Windows gaming console, the Alienware Alpha. Thoughts. As the one without a PC does this interest Wombat at all?

So Capcom shareholders changed their policy, and now anyone can buy the majority of Capcom's stocks and essentially own Capcom. So what companies would be your best and worst case scenarios on owning Capcom?

Wombat, did you get to run into / hang out with Christian Spicer at E3? A little disappointed not a single photo of you guys hanging or a DLC meets Unop meets CAG thinga-me-bob.

So, I thought I would ask you opinions on this.  With the recent addition to the Games with Gold program for Xbox One (and the PS equivalent) do you think that this is going to hurt the video game makers in the long run.  While a vast number of people buy some games new, the older long time gamers (like myself) are finding it harder to keep up with all the new games that come out, let alone play them all.  I think I can speak for others that the stacks of shame are getting higher and higher as more FREE stuff comes out with the GWG program and price drops happening faster and faster on big name titles.  Right now, I haven't paid full price for a game in months (if not years) and I feel that at sometime this has to impact the market (not my sales alone but the big crowd of people that are in my situation).  Hell, even Wombat is sometimes having a hard time finding time to game....

 

thanks

Question for Shipwreck and Wombat: Now that Cheapy was mentioned on Major Nelson's most recent podcast after giving him some good "binaural" at E3, how is he reacting to his newly found fame?  Is he using his powers for good or evil?

So how do you guys feel about IGN Deals and other similar endeavors by websites with a (likely - I have no idea) larger user base?  I just noticed this popping up on my Twitter feed recently and I assume crap like this will cut into your revenue.

Is anyone really looking forward to this Q-Bert port?  I spend tons of time in the 80's playing Q-Bert but I don't see the appeal playing with a mouse.  Are there any joystick alternatives?

Omg so first Wombat eats no-sugar Peanut Butter, then he goes to Wendys and gets a salad.

I'm not asking anything cause I'd get banned from the questions I have for that man.  :drool:

So Cheapy - What do you comment on the PS4 not selling shit in Japan?

Ok and Shipwreck - How the hell did Titanfall get the claim of "most awards ever from E3" It's ass.

Wombat, regarding your complaints about the lack of character persistence in Evolved:

Do you feel this way about all competitive games? In the NBA, should teams be able to unlock perks like smaller hoops or closer 3 point lines? Maybe a soccer player could unlock the ability to use his hands.

Okay, yes, these examples are a bit hyperbolic. However, L4D's longevity came from its versus mode, and the kind of character persistence you desire is terrible for that kind of game. It's fine for a cooperative game like Diablo or something casual like League of Legends or CoD, but not for a game that wants to be a real competition of skill and team work.

Actually the thrill of Quake is that everyone starts the same and you've got to fight for better weapons/power ups.  If Evolve turns out to be a similar thrill then it could be a long life game for sure.

In episode 372 Wombat and Cheapy seem to agree that "the only thing you can do" with regard to Alien: Isolation's garbage pre-order baiting is to pre-order from Gamestop in order to receive the content being held hostage.

 

Nope. The only thing gamers SHOULD do is not preorder it, anywhere. How else are we to tell these companies in a meaningful way that we hate and reject this practice? They hear nothing but dollars. Bitching on forums means nothing if we still line up and hand over our wallets.

 

There's no way I'm pre-ordering this. For one, I'm sending what little message my own buying practices can send. For another, that content is absolutely going to be included in the base package at some point down the line.

I think you misunderstood. Pre-Ordering is currently the only way to get the content , but we were not endorsing it.

Hey, guys. This weekend the finals of The International 4 are coming up, and the event has an $11 million prize pool. Do you think you'll be tuning in for a bit to see what it's all about or does this not interest you at all despite the ridiculous amount of money involved?

Hey Cheapy, Shipwreck, and Wombat,

 

Since the Kinect is now going to be sold as a standalone accessory at some point, what are the chances it sells anywhere close to what the original did on Xbox 360 considering that the new Kinect has pretty much received constant bad press for the past year? I can't imagine that Microsoft will spend a ton of money in marketing to try to overturn the general sentiment about Kinect, so I don't see it coming close now that people have to go out of their way to get one.



You read it. You can't unread it.

Could the $200 price for Kinect 2.0 be Microsoft's way to make the XBone + Kinect bundle more appealing for those who aren't sure if they want one or not?  I don't see it selling much for $200...but if I was looking at buying a $399 Kinect-less XBone and there is a $499 version with the Kinect then I might think "It's only $100 more if I get it now."   $100 doorstop really sounds better than a $200 doorstop.

What if Microsoft remade the Kinect as an XXX Brand and had "XXXbox Live!"  Porn always sells.

There could be achievements like "100G MoneyShot!" - KerSplat!  And "500's A Crowd!" - 500 Viewers watching you at once!

Also Am I the only one who thinks this Destiny game sucks? Just askin is it just me. Boring, no character development, smart aliens can't talk just grunt? Peter Dinklage is like Uhhhhhhhhh lets go beep boop.

makes me want to play Borderlands

I think this question is long overdue, but always forget to ask it.

...with the new site improvements (been new for months! lol!), I have noticed that there are things that have been removed/taken out either because they're still in the works and/or was removed intentionally(?) and by 'that' I'm referring to the site's 'Member trade/buy/sell game' price tracker, for the lack of a correct term, section where users of the site could actually set their collections for sale by giving it a condition 'status' with a square that a specific 'color' depending if it was in 'acceptble/excellent/new/etc' condition & a price/best offer option price.

My question, obviously, is...Are we ever getting that feature of the site again and, if so, is there any timeframe as to when we'll get it back? If it's not coming back, is there any 'specific' (ex. users being prone to FRAUDELENT users) reason why it isn't coming back?

If this was actually answered before then I'm sorry for asking it again, must have missed the response. Doesn't need to be answered in the podcast, unless you guys have barely any 'cagbag' questions for the episode...then go ahead and use it, maybe you can inform a lot of people about the situation that have been wondering the same thing, but have yet to ask. O:)

Great show guys, you guys are pretty much my #1 Podcast! Keep it up!

Hey guys, I just have a comment about what you guys were talking about on the CAGCAST #374 about Digital Downloads Vs. Physical Copies. Well I may be in the minority with this but I own 2 PS4's. One for myself and of course I had to get the Wifey one since she didn't want to be left out of all the Hype on release day in November. She recently got into shooters with me and some friends with Black Ops 2. So my point to this is that did you know that with PS4 family sharing, you only need 1 Digital Copy bought on your main console and you can share it with your other second console? Only ever really buying only 1 game for 2 people to play with. For example, I bought BF4 and Ghosts on my PS4 Digitally and installed them on both consoles. I had a little issue first getting this to work but I finally figured it out. I made the PS4 in my wife's room (MY PRIMARY CONSOLE) but it is in fact the one she plays on with her profile. In my room, that PS4 is considered the (SECONDARY CONSOLE) but it's the one I game on with my profile as a guest. This really does work. So by doing this, we in fact can play on both consoles at the same time, on the same game, in the same home and all by just buying 1 Digital Copy of each game making us a couple of true CHEAP ASS GAMERS!!! 

 

I in fact just pre-ordered Destiny for the PS4 Digitally for this reason. If my wife ends up liking the BETA and the game itself then this will be a good buy because of saving on the cost of only buying 1 copy.

 

Now, writing this post made me think about something. You probably can do this and not even be in the same home like me. For example, you may just make your friends PS4 that's located in their home your (PRIMARY) console. As long as YOUR main console is (SECONDARY) & not the (PRIMARY) this in theory should work as it did for me. Therefore, your friend could in fact Log into your profile and download any digitally bought game from your PSN account onto their console under your profile. Once the download is started and installed. They in fact can log out with your profile and log back in with their own profile and since that console is considered your primary, they can actually log in and play as a guest. And in the end, your friend may never have to pay for any game making them a CHEAP ASS GAMER!

 

Now I would also like to add that I first was not big on buying Digitally. But in this case I can make an exception. I normally would only buy a Physically copy because I like actually having a physical collection that I can look at and handle with my hands. And if I end up choosing to do so, I can trade in my copy of any game for credit and buy another game Vs. Digitally where you can't even put your hands on anything!

 

Thanks for your guys time & keep up the great work & I'll continue to listen to my #1 Podcast of Choice "CAG CAST"!!!
