That ios game Ladoliel is probably the dumbest thing I've ever downloaded sober. It's pretty much random. Evil likes kittens? Getouttahere. Leftovers is a cool show but it needs nudity to take it to the next level.


I submit to you Ernst Stavro Blofield, Doctor Claw, and Dr. Evil.

Lots of people watching the transformers movies does not necessarily translate into lots of people watching the original animated program and a desire for a game staring the cast of the original character designs, I wouldn't be surprised if a large cross section of those watching it even knew it was based on/had watched the original run of the animated program.


But the games barely have the movie Transformers in them. These are space Transformers that nod heavily to the G1 designs.

They were most likely pulled from Twitter. Cheapy asks for questions/topics before we record every week.

Wombat asking Cheapy why he bought the RetroN 5 was hilarious to me. Just the way he said it. I agree, too - it sounds like a cool piece of tech, but why spend the money on it when you have nothing to use on it? And he even said he'd rather just emulate on PC. (Which I totally agree with, too. Much easier.)

And that voice actor documentary sounded very interesting, don't see why the guys were so dismissive of it. But I'm not a big doc watcher so I probably won't get around to it.


I wasn't being dismissive, I was just trying to get Wombat to explain what made the documentary good.

In Topic: CAGcast #369: Too Many Nuts - E3 2014 Super Digital Deluxe Founders Edition

No, I did listen to it as well as all of the other audioboos. I'm just disappointed that the CAGCast's takeaway from Nintendo's E3 seemed to be solely based on their Digital Event video online that was "cutting in and out". They were giving the absolute prime opportunity to go hands-on with Nintendo's upcoming games, and seemly chose not to just because of a few-people-long lines. Their impressions of Nintendo's games at E3 were very one-note, whereas I think if they had played them or at least given them a few minutes chance on the show floor, their opinions might not have been so negative/indifferent. Their impressions summarized:

Amiibo: they're not action figures, no one wants Wii Fit Trainer and Kid Icarus, they did seem interested a bit but I'd think they would have wanted to see them in person, the Nintendo Treehouse video post-Digital Event further explained their uses although I don't think they watched it


Please understand, there are only 2.5 days when the E3 show floor is open. Our time for actually walking around and seeing stuff outside of our appointments was only about 2 hours spread across the 21 hours E3 is open. There simply isn't time to wait in line to try everything. We looked at all of the Nintendo games on the show floor and they all look like the next entries in Nintendo franchises. There was nothing particularly new that we felt we needed to wait for hands-on time with. The Amiibos were displayed in a glass case. I took a picture and sent it out. Not much else to say about them at this point. I'll play Bayonetta 2, Mario Maker, Yoshi's Woolly World, & Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker when they come out.

I really don't believe that Nintendo's showing is going to change many minds about the Wii U. They announced all the games you would expect would be coming.
