If you go to Australia, Cheapy, remember to watch out for bats in the Brittanical Gardens (I think that's what they're called). No joke.

With the PS3 slim, it'll probably be like what we saw with the elimination of the 60gb model going to $500 with the 80gb being $600. The slim will be $400 and the fat PS3's will be $300 until they're gone. That's my prediction. If the slim becomes $300, it won't be until God of War 3 hits.

I'm also wondering why Cheapy thinks a game can't come along and control better than something that came out nearly 2 years ago (Conduit vs. Metroid Prime 3 here). I'm guessing you think Goldeneye on the N64 controls a lot better than Call of Duty 4 then. I'm not saying Conduit controls better than Metroid Prime 3 because I can't compare, but the argument of saying nothing better can come along is laughable.

If I guess the title right than I agree with Wombat's feelings on Cap Reborn. It's like Brubaker (normally a fantastic writer) got stupid drunk and shat out a comic script for the most important series of his career. Not to mention Brian Hitch's art being rushed out, it looks very unpolished and blah. Can't wait to listen though.

"Michael Jackson Hotel Experience: The CheapyD Edition" would have been a better podcast title.

What a coincidence. Customers who buy the BCFX also bought The Essential Michael Jackson http://www.amazon.co...0/dp/B00283VUF6

Anyway, we haven't had a CAG Foreplay in a long ass time. I understand Mrs Ship is busy with her doctoring and whatnot but... I think you guys need to bite the bullet and finally make Ship a full time member of the show. At least until Foreplay gets back on track... if ever.

Oh please. Most comics are too stupid for words. Wolverine's real name is "James Howlett"!?!? I'm a huge comic fan, and I spend PLENTY per month on comics, but I drop the ones that insult me for reading. Stopped Avengers and X-Men back in the 90s. I am glad I haven't picked up Captain America since before the REBORN debacle.

Cheapy, you should go to hawaii for your vacation. It's a good halfway point for you and your parents. And all the different islands have different stuff to do depending on your mood.

Going on vacation? Look into the Virgin Islands for an all inclusive trip. I'm doing this in August for five days, the total cost for three adults was around $5,300.

Whenever the big superhero universes do some big change, it always goes back at some point. I think DC handles this better than Marvel. They were long and convoluted (The Return of Superman, Knightquest, Green Lantern Rebirth) but they made sense in a comic book universe. Marvel comes up with these awful dues ex machina things like Spider-Man Brand New Day and this Cap nonsense.

Some questions on Wombat's Conduit mini-review:

I'll start off by saying I don't own a Wii. However, this shouldn't be a factor in this. Cheapy mentioned earlier that console-specific games like inFamous may get a "boost" when they get reviewed, due to hype and exclusivity of the game. Could Wombat be doing this with the Conduit review? It overall seems fairly generic. What if The Conduit was released on the PS2 (taking graphics and possibilities out of the question), would it be more enjoyable on a controller you're more familiar with? Or would the game's flaws or lack of creation stand out more when the "Wii exclusive" brand is taken out of the question?

Hey, Wombat. I believe there is a program out there to take songs from your iPod and load them onto your PC/laptop.

You were worried about losing stuff saved on your iPod.

im a little taken aback with Cheapy's suggestion that the Wii is incapable of doing voiceovers in cutscenes. I mean, really? -Though: developers are to blame for this as well. I see many of them CLAIMING their games suck because of the Wii's limits, when it's clear that many of these games aren't even hitting PS2 quality graphical effects or gameplay. In no way am I claiming that the Wii is as capable as a 360 or PS3, but surely it can outdo the PS2: hell... pick a big name Gamecube title up and throw it in and THEY outdo the PS2.. so come on dev's.. put some effort into it.

BTW I'm not defending the Conduit at all.. I haven't played it and every bit of media I've seen for it makes it look like nothing more than a cookie cutter shooter that just pulls some elements from every successful game in the genre and throws them in a pot.

And one final comment... I don't see how anyone can argue that the Wii can't do FPS controls well. The pointing ability of the Wiimote makes it second only to a mouse in terms of control and thumbsticks just can't match that. Though, again, this is dependent on the developers taking pride in their product and doing it right... only a few have so far.

meh.. whatever.. good show!
