CheapyD samples the latest nastiness from McDonalds Japan and Wombat is just plain nasty. We supplement a slow news week with an extra large CAGbag and other CAGGY treats.

Let's just hope a seventies, funkified, version of wombat doesn't show up in a space ship.

The CAGbag has been in desperate need of some love lately. Also, that biscuit looks downright deadly!

Jeez, make me show how geeky I am to someone who didn't even READ IT! Spoilers, basically all the heroes freak out because of the skrulls when all of a sudden a skrull ship crashes on earth and a bunch of duplicates of the heroes and how they looked in the 70's step out.

I think Wombat is right. Paying $19.99 for an XBLA game that is episodic is too much. I think it would of been smarter if they offered episode 1 for 400 points and the rest for 800 points. Getting gamers hooked would work better. I did buy Puzzle Quest for 1200 points but it's cheaper than any other version and takes a long time to finish. Penny Arcade's title better have some hot shit under it's tank.

BTW isn't GTA4 set in Liberty City, not New York? I know it's pretty much the same style but I doubt the city will be exactly the same.

10 cool points to Wombat for the Secret Invasion reference. This is my first time listening to CAGcast, and you just secured yourselves another listener. Another reason for me to listen? Updates on Cheapy's bowel movements. 8-[

And I'd totally buy CAG action figures. :shock:;

Hmm..I didn't notice any additional nastiness in this podcast. The idea of a $20 xbox live game is ridiculous and definitely sets a bad precedent. $15 should be the limit for all live games. If Microsoft can limit the games to a certain size then they can also set a maximum price limit for the games.

Cheapy I know you said that all stores will have GTA IV readily available at launch but do you think that it's worth waiting for a few weeks for huge sales like we saw with COD4.

I also highly recommend trying out Rosetta Stone. It's a great program. I came to the U.S. 4 years ago and I could barely read or speak any English at all. The program has helped me immensely and I believe if you try it should help you too.

Wait, I thought that the PSN store would still be up, just no new content, meaning you can still download stuff. And since usually the new content consists of a demo (maybe) and a few wallpapers/themes/videos, its not a huge loss for a "massive" two weeks. But at least Warhawk is still $30 which I just downloaded.

It's Guy-din, not Guy-den.

I agree that $20 is too much for a downloadable EPISODE (because that's what it is). It doesn't entice a new user into the franchise, and even though Penny Arcade may have an audience, I cannot see all of them buying this day, even a majority.

The no new content for 2 weeks thing for the Playstation Store is BS, and maybe, just maybe this non-web-based store will mean content daily instead of weekly when you get home and are butt tired after work.

As far as the 360 goes, its' hardware situation is a disaster. And I have a hard time believing that they can make a smaller one because of the hard drive. It's made in-house so to speak, and fits on the side. A smaller system would mean they'd have to make a new hard drive, and Microsoft is basically just trying to make a profit off the thing. So unless they plan on putting it on top in a redesign, making it look uglier than it already is, Microsoft is stuck with their current system situation.

I've been a long time CAGCast listener, and fan of Wombat and CheapyD. I've never really found anything Wombat said as particularly mean, but the Penny Arcady bashing I did find a little borderline.

I understand that Wombat wants a physical copy of his games, and spending 20 bucks on a download for the XBLA might be too much, but rather than express his opinion on the matter it felt like he was completely throwing the idea to the curb and condemning it and anyone that might be interested. Wombat really needs to understand that there are millions of people that are perfectly okay with the digital distribution model, as Steam and Gametap have demonstrated.

Plus he completely knocks the game as a "flash game" when really no one knows that much about it. It might very well be a deep RPG with a lengthy play-time, and the episodic approach is a way of simply advancing the story in bite-sized chunks. Of course, Wombat could be completely right. Who knows. It's also pretty important to not view this as the "Penny Arcade Guys' Game" and as the developer's, who undoubtedly had a big say in the distribution model. That's not to say they deserve no credit and are free from blame, but it's like blaming Will Wright because The Sims has turned into a doll-house instead of a complex strategy game (which I would argue it originally was).

Anyways, I just thought it was something that had to be said, and won't change how I feel about Wombat, Cheapy, or the show. Keep up the great work, and keep on reading the cagbag for more outrage and insults from us, your devoted fans ;)

Brendan duggan, you must go to In-'N-Out before you leave Palm Springs. It is our pride and joy. It's an awesome burger joint you can only find on the West Coast.
