Wombat, my goddamn mailman doesn't even try to deliver my packages sometimes he doesnt even leave a notice that he "tried" its happened like 5 times in the last year and I've been home every time this happened. I called USPS and complained and it made NO difference.

Wombat, I'm pretty sure HDMI cables have to be the same on both ends. I think Nintendo's console will have 2 outputs like PS3/360, one for HDMI and one for composite/component. But if you have the Wii component cables they'll probably work on WiiHD because they just changed the cables with Wii. From SNES to GC, all of their cable outputs were the same.

And Wombat, thank you for calling WiiHD "Weed." I've been calling it that since before the Wii launched.

Wombat, in my area the Postal worker that does the mail and packages are different. The regular mail comes in those boxy little trucks and the package person comes in a van. That might help you distinguish between the two postal workers if you go with Cheapys plan.

It might not work though because the package person may already think you live at the other house due to habit. I would call USPS and maybe even complain in person, because 5 times is a lot. You're lucky your neighbor down the street is honest and you got your packages.

I know you guys aren't religious but I'm praying for Mrs. Wombat; hope the next couple months are smooth.

Sorry Cheapy, but I don't think your offspring (i.e. Tai) will be able to grab the stone out of the Buddhist teacher's hand . . . . . unless he inherited some Shinobi-esk skills from his mother.

Wombat, thanks for the quick lesson on Matzoh! As a gentile, it's interesting the hear the history of why this is associated with Passover.

Glad to see Need for Speed Shift 2 getting some love. It seems to have been over looked a good bit by most podcasts. I like Shipwreck only have one buddy who is playing it at the moment. So if you guys want another list on autolog send me a request on XBL squ1shy.

Yeah, I think HDMI is owned and licensed for use. I'm quite sure part of that licensing does not include being able to make one end proprietary. I doubt Nintendo will be able to screw with their HDMI cable.

Yeah if you could modify a HDMI cable Microsoft would have done it already. They are the kings of over charging for accessories (See Hard Drive, Controllers, and memory cards pre-USB update).

I got a Zune 120GB as a gift earlier last week and I really enjoy it. I now own both the Iphone, Zune, and a older model of an Ipod. I enjoy the Zune very much I like how it has the ability to listen to radio on and the screen is way better then on the Iphone or any other cell phone/media device that I have had hands on with. Music videos and movies look amazing on the Zune. I still use my Iphone as a phone (obviously) and for apps. If Zune had apps then it would be amazing...

Gay as a pejorative Womabt, really? Haha, I'm not mad at you though, because you guys are always very human about this sort of thing, and called yourself out on it, which is fairly refreshing. Kobe you are not.

Really, really happy to Have Ship back and in good health. He really is one of the most informed no-nonsense reviewers who plays games and doesn't hate them. It's a pleasure to hear him talk about games.

I have an important question for Shipwreck- does he have a spreadsheet to keep track of all his spreadsheets?

So close! If you had named the episode "In The Matzoh Madness" you would have had extra win. In the Mouth of Madness is one of John Carpenter's most underated films and clear insiration for Allen Wake and Silent Hill.

I am not Jewish but grew up in a Jewish neighborhood. Hearing the Matzoh talk brought back memories of the grocery store where I worked as a youth. Matzoh, schav and borscht. Good times. . . .

I honestly felt and still feel very guilty for saying it. But you are right I am no Kobe.

3DS has 3d parental control. Anyone with a young kid and a 3ds would know that. Well almost anyone. ;)

And when is the last time you guys picked up a Wii controller? :)

Go dust it off. You'll see an analog stick, dpad, 4 main buttons and 4 lesser buttons along with a home button. That's in addition to......drum roll please........... motion control.

Also what was the last Wii game you guys played? WiiSports? Almost none of Nintendo's games use just motion control. The control in most is actually pretty darn traditional. Motion Control in most Wii games is more like Rumble is to games. It's used where it makes sense in the developer's eyes to enhance the experience.

The main method of control in most of Nintendo's Wii games are buttons, dpad and analog stick.

Yes analog stick, singular. Two analog sticks and I'm sold. Using the Wiimote as a 2nd analog isn't for me. Just my opinion.

How long are you guys going to pay tribute to MyGamerCard.net in your signatures? I've seen four already in this thread. :)

This is one of many other sites that offer signature cards, and they have a ton of different styles. I'll give a few examples using Wombat's gamertag.

They actually DID update Yar's Revenge in a manner that both makes sense and is fun:

Bizarre they didn't just release this for 250 Microsoft points onto XBLA.

No, Wombat, you are not "weary" of a game you have never played. You may be wary, and you may be leery, but you are not "weary." That means something entirely different.

If CheapyD is ever going to do another food video, can he do it for the "Burger King Meat Monster"?

So, given that LA Noire's pre-sale issue sucks, which one will Cheapy buy?
