Thanks for making me spit my Dr Pepper all over my keyboard with that "lucky cat" joke Wombat, one of your best timing on your jokes in a long time.

I just started listening to these things but I like 'em...they're like talk radio - if talk radio was good heh...not to say ALL talk radio is bad. Just most of it.

I just found the Child's Play info not too long ago - think I heard about it on one of these CagCast's...anyway, my point is, it's cool. Already tweetered it, gonna throw some money in here pretty soon too - I'm poor is hell, but it's a good cause. Plus I need the Kama. And the raffle doesn't hurt :D

Mostly though, I'm just posting to plug the Child's Play donation on the off chance somebody reads this...

I am not so taken with Need For Speed Hot Pursuit as you guys are. It's a step down where Criterion was with their Burnout series. It should have been Burnout Paradise 2, with cops. As it is, it's very limited in gameplay variety.
I'd really have liked a "virus" type multiplayer mode where cops turned other drivers into cops by smashing into them. It was in the Midtown Madness series, why don't they bring that back?

I did check out Pinball FX 2 while listening to the show. It's fun stuff. I still prefer the Williams Pinball game physics, but the boards in this game definitely draw me in. Love the robot that thrashes around and shoots the ball at you in the Earth Defense table.

Ship, you and your wife both have Xbox Live accounts, right? (Cheapy, Wombat... are either of you multi-account households?) Have you, or will you convert to the Family Pack to see what the catch is? They're no offering a free extra month to new members, plus 800 microsoft points to all who sign up. (They say existing members get their remaining time converted to a "further discount"...hmm.) Up to 4 for the price of 2, there must be fine print somewhere, right? Single console only perhaps? And what are these "exclusive deals on family-friendly games"? Time for some investigative reporting, guys!

And since this post isn't long enough yet... Cheapy, have you gone in for your voice-over work for Saints Row 3 yet? You need to tell them to add Assassin's Creed style freerunning and climbing so we can hear modernday citizens make fun of us for climbing stuff.

Great show guys, I think NFS was by far my best Black Friday purchase, I've been playing a little every night and its hard to put down. Played my first online race last night and came in first!

Wombat: I too have the Sony sound bar 3.1 channel and its the best piece of my entertainment setup. I don't know what your setup is, but I have a Bravia TV, Sony Up-Scale HDMI DVD player and PS3 all connected with Bravia Sync enabled. It's absolutely seamless, so if you have a Sony TV, make sure that is definitely enabled..It took me about 2 days to where I was comfortable with all the settings, so you should be half way there, if not already. oh, and i LOL'd hard at the 'lucky cat' joke, the best I've heard probably since I've started listening, perfect timing and delivery :lol:

I love hearing about poop stores on the show, because this means I get to read angry comments in the show thread about them later!

I listened to a bit of that 4-8 podcast you linked to cheapy and you nailed it when mentioned how the deals this Black Friday weren't very good. In the end I got a copy Super Street Fighter IV for Xbox360 and bought Metro 2033 on STEAM for 10 bucks. That was my haul.

Cheapy,

I have had the dreaded vasectomy. I had it done about 4 years ago.

I can safely say it was the easiest procedure I've ever gone through. It took probably about 15 minutes (I sat in the room waiting for the doctor longer than the procedure took).

There wasn't any pain but I will say a syringe to the balls is a strange feeling.

Anyways, procedure was done and I was on a plane to New York with my wife that night with no problems.

I highly recommend it. Just make sure you find a good doctor. Also, if you do it, don't life anything heavy for a few days! My cousin made that mistake and was in a lot of pain.

"May-jin," Cheapy? Really? From the guy who corrects everyone's pronunciation of "karaoke"? :D

At least you made up for that with the sexypants bit. That was hysterical.

Based on your appleTV discussion I use PS3 Media Server to get everything on my PC to my tv via my PS3. It works great and the software is free. Its a java based application so the install is a breeze. It works for all pictures, moveis, and music. Yeah I have to turn on my console, but heck that is what it is for. Now this doesn't help you get content, but we all know there are plenty of ways to do that.

Great show guys, really enjoyed it.

Errr might just be me being dense, but isn't that link to the Black Friday Live show pointing at an old show (187). Seems like I've heard it before.

Entertaining show as usual guys.

Wombat -- Please update us again next week on how the Sony surround sound bar is working out ... I've been thinking of getting one but wasn't sure of the quality or effectiveness of the surround sound. I heard you need a specific room shape or setup, but am curious how you're using it.

Why is Shipwreck such a buzzkill on every episode? The best parts of the show is when you guys talk about everyday stuff. It's entertaining. I like hearing about Robutler. But no Shipwreck has to start the damn show all the time. STFU and let the comedy happen. I enjoy the video game talk obviously but when Wombat and Cheapy are being funny Shipwreck has to come in and throw a wet blanket on everything.
