Still listening, and I just want to throw out there: The reason the Iron Man demo sucks shit, is because Sega is making the game.

Glad to have you back, hope Tai is feeling better...since he's a baby and can tell you that. Also glad to hear that you've sort of settled on a rating system. I like the "how much is it worth", but I fear that this might become a problem. Since there will be a game catalog of all the games you own, would that be connected to this? I think that you should only be able to vote, if you own the game. Even renters will have biased opinions since they'll only have played the game for a few days. Same with the rating system, I dont want it to become like ign or some other site, where you can predict before a game comes out what the user score will be. Take the review score and add onto that considerably. But all in all CAG 2.0 is looking to be one of 2008's most anticipated releases.

Also, Wonbat, I feel bad you had to miss out on Comic con, due to Passover. I too missed an event, 4:20 pm april 20th. I know that sounds stupid, but at my college we had a huge party set up and everything which I put a lot of time into it, but had to remove myself due to Passover as well. As far as I'm concerned I should have only had to show up halfway into the Passover get-together since I'm only 1/2 jewish and 1/2 japanese, Ninjew. Just in time for beef, 2 glasses of wine, and desert.

Also I googled ninjew a few years back and this is what came up
I have no idea wtf its about, but it looks funny as hell.

They ruined Iron Man!!! The flying is worst then Lair's POS six axis. I really piss me off when the fucking demo at that tank boss which was pretty horrible designed like shit upon a tank.

WOW. wombat you manage to suffer thru iron man demo thrice!. It must have been 4/20 and u were high off weed b/c thats the only way you could have achieve doing that.
DC vs Mortal Kombat. what great concept. DC which a postive and MK which is negative and you combine that you get a shitty game. There no way this game even be close to balance. The big overpowered characters will be green lantern and superman will be only characters that anyone will play. They should make this game minus the MK and it will be win.
Well good cagcast

Wombat (AKA the hardest working man in videogames) i gotta disagree with ya on the multiplayer weapon thing. I think the halo system works better because it makes it part of the fight to get to the better weapons while in game like call of duty a guy can spawn with a sniper rifle and just hang back and camp never going to the areas of action. I also think for a licensed game iron man isnt that bad. yeah the no jump is pretty weak but all you gotta do is tap the hover button and its basically the same thing. id give it a $30 on the cag cash scale. I dont see how anyone can be excited for dc vs mk there gonna have an uphill battle if there gonna convince anybody that this is gonna be a good game.

Hey Wombat,
Ever answer your PM's? Tried to send you a message about comics and Eye of Judgement. Will listen to the show later on.

Also see my post on the newly announced Call of Duty CCG to get a taste of the venom in my bile Upper Deck Entertainment has given me tonight.

Listen to the Checkmate Arcade video game podcast! Also available on ITunes, Stitcher Radio, or YouTube.

Why does this episode crash my Zune? The last 4 or so episodes didn't but the ones before that did.

I want to listen it..!

Wombat, in regard to your lamenting Warhawk: far superior FPS games DID exist when Warhawk came out. They were just on the PC. They're still there ;)

I can't believe what that ifanboy douche pulled. If he did that to me, I'd punch him in the nuts.
