Are new games really that important? Does Wombat need to "get with the times"?

To me, it means buying systems and playing games years after they come out. That's just how I roll.
So I wonder if the CAGcast is better served playing new releases or playing games that have recently become cheap. I mean, there are a million podcasts covering new releases and rumors about upcoming games... shouldn't maybe the CAGcast focus on CAGness?
I think it's great that Wombat is playing older games, and I like hearing about if they are worth $10.
Talking about new stuff is great but don't stress over it. This isn't the only podcast out there, you know... be yourselves, that's what sets you apart.
Though I'm sure we're going to hear about PS3 a lot from Wombat now. A *free* PS3, wow! Now he could purchase $600 worth of PS3 games instead of paying for the system... are there $600 worth of PS3 games on the market?

What I would like to see is more talk of recent price dropped games or ones that can be had on a deal. Take the going down thred and both talk about a game(s) on that list and say yeah its woth it for 20.00 or wate until you can get it for this amount. At least with me I know a lot of games out that I tell my self all the time when I can get this for (insert $ amount) I will pick it up. I think this would make a nice new segment on the CAGcast IMO.

Saints Row is a lot of fun (I thought).
Gears of War is amazing.
Dead Rising is ultra fun for a month or two.
Oblivion rules EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And while there are a bunch of other podcasts that discuss newer games, from my experience most of them are crap and take themselves way too seriously, so I mainly only listen to CAGcast. So, I guess the CAGcast is one of the main ways I hear about newer games, especially for systems I don't own.

By the time I've the proper use of my existing game investment it should be possible to buy all three current consoles for about $600, or with a 40" 1080p panel for around $1,000.
I'm not lacking for toys until that moment arives.

I like to hear about what people are playing, and if they are playing old games, then I want to hear about what continues to keep them playing. Is it awesome? Is it cheap? If anything, It's cool to hear the dichotomy between Cheapy -- who swims around in his giant vault full of Play-Asia funny dollars and buys every game that gets published -- and Wombat -- who wouldn't buy anything unless it was actually worth his time and money.
Where's the novelty if both hosts talk about all the new releases instead of what is cheap and good? And who wants to pressure fellow gamers into playing the first two hours of every new release just so that he can deliver his impressions on a podcast?

I don't really care, because whatever is discussed is generally done so in an entertaining and informative manner.
