Sweet, while I have really enjoyed the live shows, can't wait for the 'original' flavor of CagCast!

Thanks for the hard work Cheapy, Wombat, and Shipwreck!

Is shipwreck on the cagcast permanent now? Cause if so I can stop getting my hopes up each week that the show will just be wombat and cheapy.

It's easy to make some Cheddar Biscuits that are close to Red Lobsters. Just make the regular biscuit recipe with Bisquick and add 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese and some garlic salt( maybe a teaspoon) to the mix.

I saw you guys were doing live shows but just didn't have the time to listen. But I think it's an AWESOME! idea to have the live show streaming so I can listen while I'm out, even though I duno what time I'll be going out. Again, I think it's an amazing idea to do and just hope all works well and you have enough crap to keep us entertained long enough!

Cheapy, it isn't really surprising to see how Obama's bow was taken out of context and made to look bad. That's just what the media does with Presidents.

It reminds me of how the news quoted Nixon as saying "I think that you would have to conclude that this is a great wall,"(in reference to the Great Wall of China) while conveniently omitting the second part of his quote "and it had to be built by a great people." to make him look stupid.

I don't like Shipwreck on every episode either, he just doesn't mesh too well. Though I did want him this week since I wanted to see his opinion on the games that were released that Cheapy/Wombat would have discarded.

I agree, sdp. I like Shipwreck as well, but I prefer episodes with just CheapyD and Wombat.

Yeah, no kidding. Antibiotics are for bacterial infections.

If your Dr is giving you these for a virus, he is going to to F you up with side effects, like fucking up your flora and giving you a yeast infection you can share with your Mrs. Also, he will be building up your antiobiotic resistance so that they won't work anymore when you get a real bacterial infection.

And don't get me started on Fluoroquinolone antibiotics--those are the worst for side effects and building up antibiotic resistance. Most Doctors give those out like candy.

Why does Cheapy use the the term on line when referring to waiting in a line? Is this an East Cost thing? I have never heard it before in my life until I heard Cheapy using it. The term in line, you wait in a line, you do not wait on a line. I always think he is talking about the internet.

cant believe when it came to cell shading gaming you 3 didnt remember okami( for the ps2 and the wii). you all didnt miss much with the poer glove the damn thing was a joke and a bitch to set up. it had a bad on the arm and you could control the right/left movement by moving your hands but the a/b buttons were set to your middle and index finger if i recall correctly. and there was this huge freakin sensor thing you had to put around your tv very lame stuff and it was hot made your damn arm sweat so imagin the fun of getting your turn after someone had left all that yummy skin gravy inside. nasty.

I defiantly disagree with you on the MW2 stuff.

Shipwreck: Mavarak is just a pawn, they're after the one pulling the strings.

CheapD: The story is crazy and over the top, but its not bad, if you paid attention to the first game its really cool what they do in this game, IW is absolutly doing stuff that noone has ever done in FPS's before just like they did in the first one. Its just straight up fun and good

listen to the Giantbomb special MW2 podcast, its really good.

MW2 has quite possibly the worst story of all time. The best gem of it all is how an entire army can cross two oceans for a three pronged invasion of an entire CONTINENT all because they copied this fictional "ACS" thing. Apparently we can get a spy into the inner circle of a terrorist, but cannot use our own or other nations' intelligence services to warn of an invasion until the entire Russian military is right on top of us.

So fucking stupid.

And you know what, if there is an explanation for how this could happen in your fictional world then that is GREAT. Next time please tell us all what it is instead of saying "duhh dey gotz da ACS". Explain why NATO doesn't exist, explain how the CIA and other nations intelligence services obviously don't exist, and explain why we apparently have no Pacific or Atlantic fleet. MW2's main problem seems to be the fact that they never explain anything.


IW did absolutely nothing cool in MW2's single player that sets it apart from other FPS games. They just had a lot of "LOL GOTCHA" moments and killed you about 100 times. That number may be a slight exaggeration...

As with any popular game, the snobby gaming elitists come out of the wood-work to hate it. I don't know anyone who plays Call of Duty for the story-telling but rather the set-pieces and excellent pacing - pretty much the game play.

It is funny since I thought the story in the game was on par with the ridiculousness of the Metal Gear Solid series. Yet, anytime anyone criticizes the story of MGS, they will go with their stupid argument "you are just too stupid to understand it."

I don't know what people were expecting. The game-play is what makes the Call of Duty games stand out. The only weakness is the story, and it is a valid criticism, but everything else in the game is just ridiculously... awesome. The game is obviously not for everyone - if you don't like shooters, why would you buy it?
