Yay, have been waiting for this since I got home earlier today.
Edit: I thought this was a very funny episode, and agreed with all of your rants. How can they charge $90 for RE5 (LE) and not include the multiplayer?

RE: PSP2...

If Sony were to turn the PSP2 into a casual device it would make more sense for them to throw some hardware into their Ericson phones. Going casual doesn't really make much sense for Sony. DS owns that market, like you said, no DS soccer mom would buy a PSP2.

I believe the casual market will kind of even out... Some casual gamers will become the core but the majority will not. In this economy casual gamers won't buy games. Most are fine with Mario Party DS or Wii Sports for another year; the hardcore will continue to buy games.


Play Killzone 2 again for game night. :)

Good lord, I don't give two fucks about Jimmy Chu!!! Wombat is right, you've talked about him 5 times now and every time you mention him he gets less and less entertaining.

whoever it was that tried to defend indy 4 is a fucktard. its not a matter of age that you see it at thats makes it good or not. that slike saying oh if you hated the new superman and loved the old one its because you grew up with one and not the other. and then you could say the same for the original star wars trilogy vs the star wars prequels. no. those movies mentioned sucked and they sucked because they were lazy cheap cashins. the new superman could have been better but having a fruity looking lex luthor didnt help that film at all.

indy 4 was shit. they basically came up with the situations in the script by randomly shouting out diff exciting action moments and then jumbling them together like the soul train jumble board hoping that something would come of it and surprise suprise they ended up with a bomb proof fridge and indy , a douchebag swinging in the tress with monkeys and an old chick who was never all that hott.

the film was shit anybody who says dfferent is either a retard or one of george lucas' slaves. we should take a cue from the simpsons and round up everyone who liked indy 4, the star wars prequels and transformers( that new flick not the cartoon) and put them on a rocket and send it to the sun.

Does Cheapy really complain about the $5 download of an additional feature that wasn't present in the extremely highly rated previous game in the series? If so I'm finally done with the CAGcast. I've stuck with it from the beginning, but I've been struggling with Wombat's rants lately as they have become more idiotic over time.

I'm done with 1Up for the same reason. I was a hardcore cheap ass gamer well before I started working for a game company but I'm becoming more and more disenchanted with the gaming media and the crap they spread to feed off of their fans. If they made any attempt to understand the business side of things they'd realize how completely deconstructive this irrational criticism is. It's a shame too because most companies nowadays are making concerted efforts to listen to their fans.

Hey Cheapy,

Big fan of yours and Stern's - his influence on you is obvious, and I think it's the reason that you've got the best and most interesting videogames podcast.

Being a New York native and avid Stern fan, have you ever crossed paths with any Stern show regulars?

I think you should try to get on his show. I'm sure if you could get Shima to agree to take off her clothes, you could play Win Fred's Money, or Hottest Chick with the Ugliest Guy, or Couples/Pornstar dating game or something like that... and while there, you could get in a CAG plug or two. Great promotional opportunity, and a chance to meet an icon. Have you ever considered doing such a thing?

Keep up the great work!

If you're still mad about Capcom Cheapy, go talk to your wife. I bet she'll give you the same response she did when you got upset with Kotaku. It is lame of Capcom, but damn, cheapy calm down.

Fixed. ;)

I agree with Cheapy that Capcom charging for an online mode is ridiculous, but I don't think it's really something worth getting that upset over. As a company, they can do whatever the hell they want. It sucks for us, but that's the way it works. If you don't like it, there's not much you can do about it (other than don't buy it). If Capcom cared about their fans, they wouldn't do this crap in the first place. Their reputation will suffer because of it.

Woah, Wombat talkin' about his trip to Florida surprised me, especially when he said how close to Disney they live.

I live two to three hours away from Disney, here in Hollywood, FL.

Weather's been pretty good past couple of weeks, so hopefully you enjoy your stay down here Wombat.

Great show guys, cheapys comment about Connect 4 was fucking amazing "its like tic tac toe for retarded people" :D

This really is the perfect length of the cagcast, you don't sound rushed and it's more laid back, which i love, a rushed show can really ruin the harmony of the show.

Cheers

I'm kinda wondering why Cheapy didn't mention the Joystiq story that revealed that the Vs Mode DLC for Resident Evil 5 would cost less in Japan than it would everywhere else.

Solid episode. I enjoyed the lack of baby talk :) Cheapy, if you're bored you really should check out the Adam Corolla podcast. I enjoy it, and I too listen to Howard Stern frequently.

It's not very relevant considering if you do a straight currency conversion, the game costs $75 US in Japan.

Hey Cheapy, were you trying to play "Joust" with the headboard dildo at the "Luv Hotel" when you banged your head!!?
