first, looking forward to the show!

YES! New Cagcast! I was just thinking about getting a 360 now that the price has dropped. Is it worth the money now?

You get mad at "Sony fanboys" because someone criticized your xbox360 coverage, fair enough-even though as a PS3 fan I hate that term,but then you nitpick to death the Sony .99 cents thing. You go on Home, knowing you're not gonna like it, and surprise you don't like it, I mean what exactly was the point of that, so you can talk about not liking Home?

Is it really surprising that people think you sometimes show a certain bias?


As far as the component cables for the consoles, they should really include an hdmi cable, they are dirt cheap these days.

You're welcome! CAG has helped me, so I'm happy you got to see Stern in person.

I agree about the PS3 Slim MSRP, they just should say it's $299.99. It just doesn't make sense because no one, and I mean no one is actually selling it for $299, so just advertise it as $299.99 already.

My jaw dropped when CheapyD mentioned he was on Playstation Home! My avatar was standing right next to his when I was watching the video wall. If I remember correctly, it was Saturday around 3:30 am pacific time. At the the time I thought it was another user with same name. Besides I thought he hasn't return to Japan yet. But the avatar looks just like him, so I was going to type something but Cheapy ran off before I finished typing. I'm disappointed I didn't get say hi knowing he enjoys being recognized by his listener.

As long as I've been in CAG, this is actually the 2nd CAGCast I've ever listened to.

Sounding great so far! Looking forward to hear about Howard and Arkham...

yeah actually I didn't know why christopher was smarter than the rest either.

I dealt with the "mysteries" left unanswered by the film as the fact this was a pseudo-documentary and frankly humanity is still scrambling to find out what the deal is with the "prawns".

Thing is I might now have to reconsider a dvd rental/purchase.

The tattering of the costume happens over the course of the night (remember this game happens over the course of 1 night.), regardless of your performance(since the damage usually occurs during the cutscenes).

if you look closely he has "Harvard" bumper sticker on his spaceship, we are to assume he went to college there. Thats the prequel "Alien House" directed by John Landis

Cheapy, I'm assuming that you are talking about Kobe beef as the super good steak. If so, don't get the filet because you will be way a by-product of Kobe beef production. True Kobe Beef is highly, highly marbled and is extremely tender (I assure you that there is no hyperbole in that statement). The filet is a tender cut of meat without the marbling. Most restaurants (even high end ones) don't sell Prime filets because there is little or no increase in tenderness to justify the higher cost.

If you are going with Kobe Beef, I highly suggest the strip steak. It will have great flavor plus you will get the added benefit of the tenderness that you are paying for. 9 ounces of a Kobe strip would be more than enough since it is so rich in flavor.

Happy Birthday and whatever steak you do end up getting, I hope you enjoy it.

Finally finished listening. I also disagree about Cheapy's opinion on District 9. The plot set-up was all pretty much taken care of within the first half-hour of the movie in rapid-fire Cable News style, and is supposed to be "actually happening" and set in the present. I think the movie was supposed to cause viewers to ask questions of the aliens intentions and what will happen next. Remember that the movie is set in the Humans perspective, more specifically the perspective of the media.

Not trying to hate, just giving my opinion. The movie actually dealt with a lot of themes currently present today, but given in that imaginative science-fiction/reality setting.
