CheapyD was right to call this show the "Wombat's Bad Fact Day." I think that perhaps Shipwreck's presence made Wombat want to "shine" more with his video game knowledge, but he sadly flopped. I love Wombat, but he's best at making us laugh and pointing out the often overlooked details. I'm glad he was better near the end.

The PS3 has outsold the 360 since winning the Hi-Def format war on a worldwide front. They are slightly ahead in the US since the beginning of the year, but worldwide they are ahead in Japan and have just pulled ahead of te 360 in Europe.

As far as the Nintendo Channels Cheapy, try CLICKING ON THE VIDEO, it makes them full screen.

ZOMG, Cheapy is a XBox fanboy while Wombat is a PS3 fanboy. I want to see an epic battle. Please don't kill me. ;)

They may just like to offer up contrasting opinions for the good of the show, it would be pretty boring if every time one of them said something the other would just agree all the time.

Although giving a lot of time to the Microsoft exec's stats and opinions was pretty worthless.

Hey guys I wanted to comment about the fact that your talking about the XMB. I believe the XMB is a issue of available RAM. The original footprint *how much RAM the console took just to exist* was, and I'm not bothering to look it up, 96 MB. The current footprint for the XMB is 72. It's an issue of shrinking down how much RAM the system uses in the background of everything so that the XMB can exist on top of the game and the software being used. I think the target is 64 to have the XMB run smoothly.

Peace.

Nice. One of my old co-workers was named Jacob/Yakov. We used to call him the Yak.

So how does this work for Tai now? Is it inserted into his current name or is it going to be something that the Jewish relatives call him? :lol:

In high school I knew a lot of Vietnamese people with Viet names and some of them lliterally made up their own American names. Oddly enough most of them start with J and had Viet names that started with H.

From what I've heard, Matt Damon's likeness isn't in the Bourne game because he didn't want to do the Bourne character anymore.
In the middle of development, Damon made a comment like "I've ridden that horse as long as I can." Hehe... Guess I should listen longer. :lol:

And about the Warhawk tournament... CheapAssGamer is has a team set up, but we're still trying to figure out the GGL site... It has quite a few of us dumbfounded. :dunce:

And timed button pressing... Dragon's Lair anyone?

My guess is that he will rarely hear it again.

How interesting. So your birth name and Jewish name aren't the same? David doesn't count? I was under the impression it was more of an equivalent to Tai having an English/American name.

Maybe you guys should open the next CAGcast with some Jewish music (Dradle song please) and have the first very Jewcast.

Also, Second Sight is an awesome game. Kudos Wombat.

As far as the Bourne game goes, I personally liked the demo. Also, Cheapy you called it the Bourne Ultimatum and lamented the fact they made a tie-in game way after the movie came out. Actually, the game is the Bourne Conspiracy and is a starting from the begining as a game series with heavy influence from the films.

Enjoyed Shipwreck, hopefully he can come back another time.

Also Cheapy wasn't as big a jerk to wombat like usual.

Between Cheapy completely botching the PS3 sales numbers and Wombat completely botching the Bioshock sales numbers, this should have been called "CAG's Bad Fact Day".

Can you please actually check the fact before you guys do a show?

As an aside, I completely agree with Wombat about Ninja Gaiden II's downloadable content.

So the Bourne game is just like Minority Report then? Surprised that comparison wasn't mentioned on the show.
