I don't believe Dragon's Dogma was ever confirmed to be Capcom's most expensive game to date, but it definitely had the largest staff with 150 Capcom employees and another 150 outside contractors. It sounded like they went into development with the expectation that it would appeal to the West and become a new flagship franchise for them, but last month's sales predictions were only 1.5 million, so I think they eventually lost faith in the title. According to vgchartz.com they're only about halfway there, and half those sales came from Japan, so it didn't quite reach the intended audience. I doubt they're just gonna throw away the franchise, though. I mean, the name's out there now, so you might as well just hand it off to some C-tier Western studio for some quick and easy cash, no?

Prometheus really was a disappointing mess but to see Charlize Theron's ass in that skin tight black jumpsuit was easily worth $5

Ship, it seems like you're having so many problems with your BRAND NEW PC. Even I felt frustrated seeing your tweets. I was getting ready to purchase mine a few months back when I ran into ibuypower, did some research and heard a lot of testimonials about their terrible service. Needless to say you should have went with Digital Storm instead. 2 week turnaround and top-notch customer service. I guess it's too late to say to return it? Anyways, happy PC Gaming.

I actually enjoy the CAG 'coverage' more than the big sites. All I need to do is go to my podcast feed when I get home from work, spend 30 minutes rather than 2 hours of reading articles to catch up on the happenings of E3. Not as good as the Bombcast shows but still great.

Cheapy is a marketing genius.

Wombat does the Audible commercial. He promotes it by saying he just got Game of Thrones. Cheapy then tells him how dumb he is and that he should just watch the Blu-rays. :)

I think Digital Storm is more expensive, but it's worth it to avoid the hassle. Avoid ibuypower and cyberpower like the plague.


Is saying "waiting on line" to describe people physically waiting in a line a New York thing? I noticed it a lot in this episode.

I was the CAG who ran into Cheapy outside the Zen appointment. He must remember things differently because he wasn't "short" or anything other than completely friendly and gracious.

He let me talk his ear off for almost 10 minutes so if anything I'm sorry for interrupting his rest time. It really was a pleasure to meet him in person and it made me even happier to be a CAG for all these years.

Dang, getting to Bombcast length, but I'm being honest when I say it's a nice length.

pocket planes is really cool, though I can't figure out how to attach it to CAG? So embarrassing

flight crew to CAG? I just changed it

The same specs he got can be had for $1499 except for the 16gb of ram. The Digital Storm ODE V2 at that price offers 8gb of ram. I'd happily pay a bit extra just for their customer service alone, all the techs there are extremely generous and helpful.

Wombat, stick with the books. Don't listen to Cheapy. After you are done with Game of Thrones, I guarantee you will know more about that world and story than Cheapy. The HBO series does a great job, and I definitely recommend watching after you are done reading, but it is nothing compared to the book.

Digital Storm is where I plan to buy my next PC from. I got my current one from Cyberpower in 2007 and they'll never see another cent from me.

Great show yet again, guys. Very interesting to hear about you dealing with people who have listened to the show in a "business" context. Honestly the idea of someone listening to the previous podcast (which was awesome and one of your best) and then meeting you guys right after at E3 is pretty funny. Still the occasional TMI nature of the CAGcast is what makes it one of the best podcasts in existence, so keep at it I say.

I really enjoy the podcast, but it is death when a subject is brought up, and then someone says, "I guess we'll talk about that later." Talk about it when it comes up, not when your show format dictates it should.

I don't think that truck had anything to do with Nick Tahou's. . . Hence them calling it a "Trash Plate". The Garbage plate can only be purchased at Nick's.

I for one used to get the Garbage plate with 1 burger, 1 red hot, macaroni salad and cold baked beans. Damn those were good.

I disagree. . . a show needs structure or it can become a bunch of aimless digressions.

10 minutes and Cheapy thought he brushed you off? So humble. ;)

In Wombat's defense: they rammed a lot of t-shirts down our throats this year. My count was 6. 2 are for games we didn't see, but somehow I ended up with shirts for.

I was really looking forward to a CAG party this year - it's a shame nothing occurred. I also peeked at the Power Rangers video. I would have checked out the Dragon Ball Z Kinect game.

I was pretty disappointed to hear Ship's utter hate of the film Prometheus. I usually agree with Shipwreck on many of his reviews of games, but for movies, I can't really wrap my head around his taste. Especially the fact that he didn't mind Battleship which was absolutely dreadful throughout. Prometheus is not perfect in any shape or form, but it's light years better than a lot of the crap out in theaters today.

What's with all resentment toward E3 swag? I've actually heard several other podcasts mention a dislike for this swag. Is it the tourist equivalent of wearing a Hawaiian shirt with a camera around your neck? As someone that isn't in the business, I would jump at the opportunity for any free gifts given to me during an event like this. I mean that's what it's there for, right?

The thatgamecompany deal wasn't done so they could bring their current games to other platforms, but so that they could make their future games for multiple platforms. Sony owns the rights to their previous games.

Wombat, you don't need to download those PS+ games. Just purchase them and you can download them whenever you want to play them, though it might be time to do a hard drive upgrade if you're out of space.

It's because they're there to work and not to grab swag like it's a vacation.
