Cheapy - I was thinking the same thing about the Beatles Rock Band bundle. At first I figured with the $250 price tag it must also include a regular guitar (in addition to Paul's bass). When I found out that it didn't I thought, well, then it must have some exclusive DLC or a code like you suggested for some of the upcoming DLC. But no...

Instead, we get the mic stand (which I haven't even unwrapped yet) and what else? Oh yeah, some post cards... :lol:

My son wants me to get the other two $100 guitars and I told him no way. If they get dirt cheap like just about every other GH/RB peripheral then sure, I'll get them (they do look very nice). But after spending $250 on the bundle and getting more instruments we didn't even need (already had GHWT and RB2 drums and plenty of guitars) I've had enough.

And yet, I will be buying pretty much all the DLC ;). At least I have cheap MS points thanks to CAG.

I also noticed the slowdown on the Katamari demo and was pretty disappointed. Still, though, I have it preordered at Amazon. It is $49.99 MSRP though Amazon has it for $46.99. After getting it as a gold box quick pick and tacking on ECA I ended up paying $39.94. (And then I used a $30 code from the trade-in promotion and really got it for just $10). Probably without those discounts I may have waited. But I am looking forward to getting back into Katamari. It's been a few years since the 360 one came out and I have that Katamari craving again.

I loved this show, though i did get a little puzzled about the IKEA bit. Being a Swede, and an experienced IKEA furniture assembler, i find putting those things together take between 1h-15min depending on size and amount of pieces, i guess we Swedes just have that shit built into our genes 8-)

I'm sorry but Wombat nailed that one. I love IKEA stuff (and in fact am probably getting a TV stand there myself soon) but they are notorious for being a pain in the ass to build. I'm always sore for days after putting one of their larger furniture pieces together. (Though I have to say it was a bit excessive that it took Wombat ALL day to do it ;)).

If you guys want to use your Zune HD on the mac, you can do it if you have bootcamp and/or a virtualization software called parallel desktop installed.
Parallel desktop lets you run windows software on your intel-based imacs.

As far a the ''fake glitch" in Batman, Metal Gear Solid 2 did something similar where the system went all haywire towards the ends of the game.

Hey Cheapy and Wombat.

I know this comment is about 2 podcasts old but I felt compelled to post it in order to bust Wombat's balls. In Cagcast 170 (I think) Wombat refers to the "God awful Iron Man game", however as many Cagcast listeners will remember, about two months ago Cheapy had to practically beg Wombat to stop raving about his $7 Iron Man game.

Granted Wombat was making the point that for $7 bucks it was a good game but the reality is that a game cannot be "God awful" and really good no matter what the cost is. Back me up on this one Cheapy!

Amazing CAGcast as always guys! Wombat seemed a little pissy in the beginning but it happens. Anyway, I wanted to say that I hope Mrs. Wombat's voice sounds hot on next weeks show so I can touch myself when she talks about her "diabolical box". Get the tissues ready!

You guys forgot a important release: Scribblenauts bitches!

Also Wombat thanks for having me never go to Gamefly. I'm in CT and I'm not gonna wait even longer for games, unless my wife gets laid off and I'm supporting a family on a $13 an hour job lol.

If you looked at Sony's press release on the Slim announcement, they say that the suggested retail price is $299 even. So now your beef is with the retailers, Cheapy.

You read it. You can't unread it.

No, I'm pretty sure they mentioned it. Cheapy said something about how all the reviews were saying the controls were bad.

Great podcast this week guys. Will you be getting Guitar hero 5 as well as Rock Band: Beatles?

Wasn't expecting my comment to be read out haha.. I understand why you were talking about it though (Howard stern appearance).

Loved the intro music this week! Haven't finished listening.. got another 30 mins left... but very good ! :D

I agree with you about guitar hero/rock band specials having limited songs... I have Guitar Hero: Aerosmith & seriously.... 20 of the songs are Aerosmith... the rest arent!

Holy crap - I match that profile exactly. Except I don't go by the nickname of wombat, I don't live in Ohio, I have more hair on top (and less on the face), I look younger, I'm better looking, and, oh yeah, I'm not gay ;). But otherwise, that dude is my TWIN!

Blu-Rays are too expensive? Where have you guys been shopping? I usually don't pay more than $20 which is also what most new 2 Disc DVD editions cost. Also there's been tons of cheap blu-rays on sale as of late for less than $15. Space can be an issue but don't say that blu-ray discs are too expensive.

Great show!

Cheapy, your comment of the insane price for the Beatles Rockband set is only made more apparent by the $140 price of "Beatles Rockband Special Value Bundle." This includes the game and all of the normal rockband instruments. For $40 more dollars you could buy the stand alone Rock Band 2 game and for $5 more dollars + the cost of a game rental, import all the songs from the original rockband.

So for the cost of the "special edition" , you could have Beatles Rockband (140), Rock Band 2 (40), and the songs from Rock Band 1 (10~) and $60 extra dollars.

That deal sounds so good, I think I might actually grab it as I dont have any of the rockband games or instruments!
