Seems like every time I go to download the show when it comes out, I get stuck with only the show intro before it crashes. Guess I have to wait :(

I, like Wombat, thought you were talking about playing the MLB 08 demo on the PS3 from the toilet. Is this actual interest in playing the game or just the kind of interest that you never follow up on and actually buy the game? At least with this game, compared to say MLB 2K8 on the 360, you could buy the US version and play on your Japanese PS3.

Have you played Madden this year Wombat? It's quite a bit better than the first two attempts at next-gen Madden, mostly because of the Weapons system that gives the stars of the league some actual weight during the game. It seems like the series is heading in the right direction now.

So, Cheapy, what was the Alexa ranking of CAG at the end of its first year in 2003?

You read it. You can't unread it.

Cheapy, your argument about the PS3 not having downloadable movies has always been a bad one to say the least. The PS3's initial driving cause was for Blu-Ray to win the Format war. If they had downloadable movies from the beginning, it would hurt their Blu-Ray division, and sales of both software and the PS3 hardware.

As it comes to failure rates, If you took the estimated 30% by some people and the Microsoft # of 3-5% (4% average), and divided them, you'd have, low and behold, 17%. Most surveyers are lazy, as I've done a few myself. They're not worth doing, and if you have to do them, you want them done as quickly as possible.

I think you may be off here. The PS3's initial drive was to sell gaming consoles. Then when there were no good games available they repositioned it in the market as a Blu-Ray player, and thus by necessity didn't offer the amount of video downloads that anyone would have hoped for.

Saying they released the PS3 to win the HD format war is essentially trying to justify it being "also a gaming system" instead of recognizing what it is supposed to be in the first place: a next gen video game console that also plays Blu-Ray.

I thought CheapyD downloaded the PSP demo as well as the PS3 demo of MLB08.
I am sad to hear Wombat lost his job opportunity. The Shipwrecks were really good this week. I credit myself for recommending PixelJunk Monsters. I think it loosened them up.That and the new couch.

Wombat, I'm soooooo pissed at you!!! Why didn't you say something?

I know he was joking, but when Cheapy said"Hey, Just PM Wombat, Let him take you on a personal tour and to dinner, he'll let you sleep with his wife.", I felted he took it too far.

I just knew you was going to say something after the weird pause. Oh!, you did say something. You said "probably"!

PROBABLY?? PROBABLY?? I probably would have curse Cheapy's bitch ass out for that shit!!

I would have got on a plane, flew to Tokyo, punched him in his mouth, took his iMac and made his bald ass a wig out of shit and undigested corn!!

You really shouldn't let Mrs. Wombat hear this podcast since she's already pissed at him.

Oh yeah, don't give up trying to get a dream job working in the video game industry.

Cheapy, I totally agree, Professor Layton's math puzzles hurt my brain too. I love the story and characters but some of the puzzles are ridiculously hard. I did much better with a lot of the other types of puzzles but anything involving numbers hurts my brain cells...

Btw, Wombat, I hope Mrs. Wombat gets well soon. ^^

Thanks for answering my SSBB question, Cheapy. I look forward to Wombat's impressions. GAME SET!

Oh yea, my 360 never broke *knock on wood* so I guess I'm the only CAG here who hasn't red-ringed. :)

holy crap, wombat totally nailed married life. It was like I was having a flashback to yesterday. BTW the best ps2 compilations are the 2 capcom compilations, metal slug anthology, sega genesis, and the taito compilations (worth it just for Rastan). I made the apple conversion 2 years ago and I never looked back.

This might be hard to believe, but I actually just chose listening to the CAG cast over Howard Stern. I know that Cheapy loves Stern, and I do, too. Stern even got me started on reading (after reading "Miss America") to the point where I reluctantly admit, now, that my favorite books are 19th century Russian literature. Anyway, I love stern and I started downloading, uhm....borrowing, his recent stuff and I stopped to listen to this podcast.
This better be good. Thanks a lot, guys.

My launch elite didn't red ring, but the disc drive failed in September so I'm on my second one. 16% is crazy low.
I think it's funny how seriously people take the abusive banter between Cheapy and Wombat. I know some of the issues are real but this is just how most guys talk to each other. BTW that's not necessarily directed at you, evil_twin.

Still listening to the show, but I just wanted to say that both the game and movie Jumper are terrible. I was at the press screening and I can say that neither are recommended. The movie seemed like it could have been good, mindless action, but it turned out to be bad, mindless acting. Hayden Christensen was about as charismatic as a 2x4 and Rachel Bilson played a more believable role on the OC. Overall, the problem with the film is that every single character and interaction is completely unbelievable--there is not a single "human" reaction in the entire film.

Without ruining the movie for others, I will say this: If you are expecting a movie full of epic battles between "jumpers," prepare to be disappointed. The action sequences are infrequent and the number of "jumpers" is far fewer than the trailers would have you believe. Aside from that, the plot holes are abundant but I'm uncomfortable discussing them here for fear of "ruining" the movie for someone. If you're going to see one movie in a theatre this month, don't even bittorrent this one.

Cheapy, I remember that place in penn station, there was another big arcade in time's square I think it was called Playland but the only time I went there I could just barely reach the joysticks so I don't have a good memory of it. The arcade I frequented the most was Chinatown Fair which is still there by the way. I even worked there for a while in high school. It's the place where people protested over the dancing chicken machine because there was a real chicken in the there and I guess it danced when you put your quarters in because the floor got hot.

Hey guys, another great show as always.

Cheapy I was wondering, do school kids still get days off when popular games, (e.g. Super Smash Brothers: Brawl) are released? I remember hearing years ago that when certain popular games came out, schools would give the students a day off because they know they wouldn't come in, since they're playing the new release. Do you know if this still happens these days?

Also, yo yo yo shiver me timbers!

As far as I know, they only do that when Dragon Quest games are released.
