Listening right now.

I want to hear what you guys have to say about Metro 2033. I rented it a few hours ago, and the game's ok, but the shooting's pretty awful.

What the hamburger is this podcast about?!? O_O Those pic's make me think someone on the cast is a serial killer or Cheapy went back to a love hotel. I guess it's to find out! Perfect timing btw, I was just about to shut down and head out.

The Best Buy stores near me (SoCal) are loaded w/ ps3... What shortage?
The only shortage is PS3 btooth headsets so that i can price match the latest K-Mart deal. Luckily i found the last blue tooth headset in the city of industry.

Didn't Ship discuss Metro 2033 in last week's cast? I'm pretty sure he did, since he was going on about the nape of the neck.

While someone is editing out Cheapy saying "I lasted like 3 seconds because I couldn't steer the ship"... a minute later while talking about Scrambler, he says "If you stretch it out, you'll just destroy the aspect ratio". Cut off the '-pect ratio'

He kinda did, but this time, he and Cheapy covered some other game play aspects. I already knew the shooting mechanics were terrible from what he said last time, but I was interested in what he had to to say about the game after spending more time with it.

BTW, great show, guys. Wombat should hum every time Cheapy does the godaddy.com plugs. That shit was hilarious.

The problem I have with 3D is the glasses; I guess because I already wear glasses. I don't know about you guys but I hate 3D movies for the fact that every time I've seen a 3D film (very rarely mind you) my eyes are literally left shaking afterwards. If Nintendo can come out with a device that can do 3D without the glasses and the headaches, sign me up.

I've found that the jumping problems in GOWIII really stem from the fact that people aren't jumping from the edge of a platform, but rather a little bit in from a platform where only 1 jump registers then you fall to your death. If you try to double jump from the edge of a platform, you shouldn't have any problems.

Yeah, the Mass Effect 2 DLC like firepack is somewhat tame. The hammerhead DLC took an hour and got boring playing each of the 5 missions in a row because I don't have anything else to do in the Mass Effect world.

I don't understand why Bioware doesn't let Shepherd explore new worlds and places that are just mentioned in the main storyline. For example, some DLC that's let's you visit
Spoiler
, or the Hanar's water homeworld, seeing those jelly fish motherfuckers swimming around, and resolving issues Thane could have on his homeworld, like perhaps the assassin brotherhood, or hell if you want to make it a bit easier, put back the old citadel levels and let Shepherd explore that and see what happened since he's been away for two years. You could even do the same with Noveria, Eden Prime, and Ilos. I know it's not as easy as shoving the old maps in there, but this way you'd at least already have concept art as to what the places look like, who'd the player would run into, models already built from the original level, etc. One of the best parts of Mass effect is exploring the vast galaxy, and I want to continue doing that. Sorry for the rant, but I don't need another partner to help with a mission everyone who has had the game for months now has finished. Again, I know how hard it is to make a game, but if anyone can do it, it's bioware.

I know, I know this really long and nobody will read it, but I had to give my 2 cents and will now go to bed.

P.S. Fantasic four was a god awful movie.

I have no doubt that certain stores have PlayStation 3's in stock, but there is definitely an overall shortage. They are out of stock just about everywhere online and selling for a $70 premium on Amazon.

It's still on the docket. I've been extremely busy the last few weeks with work, basketball, CAGcast, trying to get some reviews done, and just everyday life.

Say I hear the next xbox Arcade update is going to add a totally new virtual object for their next Arcade title. Yes with Tennis for Two, you get a Vintage Oscilloscope to setup in your virtual arcade in lieu of an arcade cabinet.

I was in the same boat as Shipwreck. I downloaded Game Room and really wanted to give MS $3. I tried demo after demo and just did not want to play any of the games for more than a minute or two. You'd think they'd want to launch Game Room with some bigger games. I thought there would be some Activision games like Pitfall, Chopper Command or River Raid. I would have for sure bought at least one of those.

Also, press select during the game and a menu comes up. In there you can learn how to play the game and what the controls are. Just referring to Shipwreck commenting that he didn't know how to play the games.

Thanks guys for talking about the 360 and how its cheap in a lot of aspects. Had a bad experience about 2 years ago when it ate my COD4 and was turned off by it since then, but I think I maybe coming around again. Let's see what E3 has in store.

I've been listening to the CAGcast since the beginning and I just want to say that the show is finally living up to its name: Wombat is cheap, CheapyD is an ass, and Shipwreck is a gamer. Way to finally round out the cast! Keep up the good work.

Not sure on the Wii as a gateway drug.

I think those (who don't know much about games) that attempt to switch will find the 360 a time sink in comparison and ultimately be turned off. Long loading times and dual-analog controls won't help either.

Commercials may suck them in and make them feel like they are missing something, but I don't think it will stick.

I'm part of that crowd though so we'll see. I just got an Elite after having a Wii-only since release, but I've been a gamer.
