I'm interested in your views on Foosball. Your twitter made it sound like you enjoy it, so time to check out the cast and see what's up :)

Not done with the podcast yet, but Cheapy meant Spider-Man Unlimited, which has nothing to do with Spider-Man 2099. Spider-Man Unlimited was a terrible series where Peter Parker goes to an alternate Earth to save J. Jonah Jameson's son. Miguel O'Hara was Spider-Man 2099.

What was great about Batman Beyond was how it connected with other DC cartoons, like Justice League, since they were all in the same continuity.

There's a lot of Cheapy vs Wombat action in this week's show.

It was interesting to hear Cheapy and Wombat have a little debate about the 3DS.

Cheapy, is there any kind of feature or game that could change your opinion on the system? What would you like to see?

I'm glad to hear that Wombat likes ME3 multiplayer that much. Sorry to be a grump, but the blue outlines of other players and the hacking aspect were always there. What's new is the objective where someone has to pick up object A and take it to place B, Platinum difficultly, gear bonus slot, and of course the maps/characters/weapons. Hope to play with Wombat in the future and hopefully I can snag Cheapy again into playing.

Cheapy - thanks for the recommendation on First Position. My wife and daughter are dance enthusiasts (my daughter has done ballet for a long time and is on the high school dance team) and will probably love this. I'd never heard of it before. Too bad it is not available on Netflix though.

Also, I broke my toe on my exercise bike about a month ago ;). But I do actually use it occasionally too...

And if you guys want to play any ME3 multiplayer let me know. I so rarely play any sort of multiplayer but I did really get into ME3 a few months back. It would be nice to give it another shot.

Biggest fault with the Sony 3D display: it will stop working and it takes over a month turnaround to get it fixed. Mine is currently allegedly on the way back to me right now. It broke in late June (just didn't turn on one day) after a month and a half of use. The problem seems to be as bad if not worse than original model 360's with the RRoD.

Obviously, this negates everything else I said in the episode :)

CheapyD, you should really talk to other parents about what their children watch. You've been living in Japan so long and I'm surprised that you didn't know that Super Sentai (Power Rangers) is a big thing in Japan like Ultraman or Kamen Rider. Depending on when Saban gets around to it, you'll see it in Power Rangers form in the next few years, though Tai will have outgrown them by them.
Here's a simple enough article, by another parent living in Japan: http://kotaku.com/58...e-squad-of-them

Besides, I'm pretty sure the "Go Busters" air at 7:30 on a Sunday morning, too early for adults, but the right time for children.

Oh right, Wombat here's a video about some live action Turtles. http://cinemassacre....tion-leftovers/

i was a little shocked that everyone on the show thought that it was spider-man 2099 it was peter parker in a diffent work he goes into a wromhhole ...well i'm just a big fan of the show and batman beyond and spider-man unlimed were made by the same people and at the same time even the actors are the same for the shows.:)

I watched Spider-Man Unlimited and I thought it was terrible as a kid, yet I kept watching.
Spider-Man 2099 takes place in the future, and stars Miguel O'Hara in a cyberpunk New York City.

I agree with Wombat, CheapyD has to stop comparing the 3DS to the iPhone, especially when he has a Vita.

I've watched most of Spider-Man Unlimited before and it's not so great, but it's watchable. It's basically Spider-Man thrown into a mishmash of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles style side characters.

This will sound weird, but I like that no one talks in ME3 multiplayer. Unlike COD MP where everyone talks just to be annoying and offensive.

Spider-Man Unlimited was terrible as everyone said. It came out after the good Spider-man cartoon from the mid 90's that aired on Fox, but never had any appealing characters. And have to agree that the characters on the show that were not Peter Parker came off like C tier TMNT characters.

Never finished Darksiders either. The pacing of the game was too meandering. And while the game makers may not like having their game compared to Zelda they sure go out of their way to use a lot of that game series tropes.

Just want to say that there are lots of linux versions that are very easy to use. I think ubuntu is a lot more intuitive than windows. Unfortunately, there's not much gaming for Linux platforms.

I think Windows 8 will not be as popular as 7 but not necessarily a disaster. The reason why I am not looking forward to Win 8 is because of the Metro Interface. Instead of booting up to your desktop you boot up to a cruddy interface that looks just like a Windows phone. You can go back to your normal desktop but when ever you hit the start button it will bring you back to that interface unless you disable it in the registry (in the build that I last used).

Here is an image of what your computer will boot to in Windows 8: http://www.webmonkey...win8chrome1.jpg

Cheapy's story about the kid on the subway reminded me about Dave Chappelle's great bit about being held hostage by a public transit masturbator.

Cheapy carries a napsack? Is that like a Jerry Seinfeld European carry-all or are we talking about a fannie pack. Are these common in Japan?

Hey, Cheapy. GiantBomb did a great quick look of Sleeping Dogs, if you are interested..

http://www.youtube.c...eature=g-high-u

I had some Amazon credit, so I watched First Position...You were right, I was very skeptical at first, but also pleasantly surprised as it went on. Great recommendation.

Awesome podcast as usual, guys. Thank you!
