CAGbag: Get your questions answered on CAGcast
Posted 26 March 2008 - 06:18 PM
I recently found your podcast on Itunes and love it. Over the last couple weeks I've been downloading all of your old CAGcast's and listening to them while working. My question is that I've heard that your both huge zombie video game fans and I'm currently designing a 3D game level for the Unreal Editor in which zombies over take a modern New York style city due to a witches curse. What objects would you like to see in it? Any thoughts?

Recently the video on my 360 went out. A friend of mine suggested I try the towel trick. I know that the trick is related to the RROD, but I wondered if you thought it might work for my problem?

Cheapy, the Tasty Tai video is so awesome and is "super cute" like you said it was. Looking forward to the new CAGcast tomorrow:D
P.S This ---> For some reason reminds me of Wombat lol. Just think of Wombat and imagine him doing that, it will probably make you laugh (this won't appeal to people who don't know what Wombat looks like).

I agree with bobthecat, I have been waiting for the apartment tour ever since the office tour. C'mon Cheapy, I know you have parenting to do but if you have time to eat your child (awesome video by the way), I'm sure you have time to show us your crib lol.

Is there any hype around this game in Japan, since the US MLB season recently started in the Tokyo Dome ( Sox vs A's) and the Japanese season should start up very soon also? Also, was there a lot of talk about the MLB season opener in the Tokyo dome during the past week? I Really enjoyed staying up 'til 6 am pst to watch both games with a few buddies. No worries since its spring break at our college this week.
Also I recently picked up the Pocket Power Pros 10 DS game that you recommended in an earlier cagcast. I own the ps2 version from last year and the game is pretty much the same, except I have not yet figured out all of the game since my Japanese is well, beyond rusty.
p.s. Glad to see cheapyd back on youtube, I hope Tai was tasty, some furikake would have made it a meal..

I’m a long time listener and big fan of the show, and I think you guys are doing a great job.
A few months ago Cheapy was talking about having his friend build him a gaming PC. I was wondering what ever happened with that? I was real excited to hear that Cheapy was going to be getting into PC gaming as I feel it is underrepresented on the show. I know it is a common misconception that it is too expensive but you can build a PC that will play anything out for around $800. Plus the prices of games are much less than on consoles for example I just bought Prey off steam for $5.
Keep up the good work,

Pretty new listener, but your podcasts make my Friday at work fly. A few questions about the modding scene with the recent cheapness of the xbox.
Are a lot of people into the whole "modding" scene in Japan for consoles? Cheapy and Wombat how do you feel about something like Xbox Media Center and what it offers xbox users in the way of media features?

When you sons grows up im guessing he will be speaking Japanese, dont you think it will be awkward when he brings his friends over and you have no way to communicate to them, not only that but you couldn't really talk to your own son since hes gonna have to learn Japanese for school do you care?are you ever gonna learn Japanese?
BTW Wombat stop being to grumpy......

Edit: and I really was thinking about this before I read thorbahn's post above.

What's the status on having more guests on the show? There's got to be someone out there who either listens to the show or lurks on CAG that you can set up an interview with! If you can't get anyone from Rockstar, Microsoft, Sony, Konami, Nintendo or whoever, then why not ask CAG rolandx, the guy who made that US-developed WiiWare game? I bet they'd love more free plugging, and even if they don't want to talk about insider stuff too much, the guy can at least gab about NPD sales data or something.

Great minds think alike.

On the topic of language — Cheapy, I have a question that has nothing to do with videogames, but I'd be thankful if you could shoot me a short answer anyway. I've been giving serious consideration to pursuing a year-long contract for teaching English in Tokyo starting in the summer of '09. I have a bunch of experience working in schools and I work as an English copywriter, so I think I'd have a decent chance of getting hired, but I don't know any Japanese. Bearing in mind that I DO NOT have a Japanese wife, how well do you think I could get on in Tokyo with almost no Japanese knowledge except for "thank you" and things I can read from a phrasebook? How much trouble do you have when you're out and about, without Shiima to translate the world for you?
The CAGs On News song is awesome. And so is Wombat's live CAGs On [Bags] remix.

I was wondering why a lot of people complained about Heavenly Sword and God of War: Chains of Olympus being so short, yet nobody complained about GoW1 being short? I was able to beat that in around 7 hours.

Great show as usual. I was wondering what you guys think about the fact that is Netflix is thinking about giving the Xbox 360 access to their movie library?
Also here's a funny little article I found on Yahoo news, I couldn't help but think of you, Wombat.

Think about this for a min; the PS3 has only been out for a year but it of course has a few multi player titles (COD4, Burnout, Resistance, and Warhawk for example). Wouldn't it be fair to say that you are going to have to substantial patches ALL of those games to run on the new standardized system?? (including games like GTA4 and whatever the hell game comes out before they get this up and running).
(P.S. Sony ... please add a standardized chat/headset)

Also (for both of you) with Microsoft cracking down on achievement cheaters by resetting their gamerscore, banning them from previous achievements and branding them as a cheater, don't you think that the cheaters could easily just create a new gamertag. This way they will still have 0 GS but will be able to get previous achievements and won't be named a cheater. What is your verdict on this..............verdict.
