A new video podcast of about 5-10 minutes each would be a very nice addition to the weekly shows. Even if you two aren't communicating directly, a "Sessler's Soapbox" type video comming with video clips from both of your perspectives would be a great idea. Why not spread the greatness of CheapAssGamer through more than one form of media.

These would be available through iTunes right?

I love to see the first page of posts on the new cag cast because people always post the lamest shit just to get the first post or the first few. usually we get "Oh sweet, I'm going to listen now!"

It's nice to see that we have gone back to the roots though, and while I think you're annoying for doing it Guttersnipe, I commend you for not fronting. :applause:

Uhhh ohhh, I can only imagine to think what this podcast is named after and cringe....

And wombat, I can't disagree with you more about LBP. I think it can appeal to anyone, and the game is going to come with a decent amount of levels, created by Media Molecule, and rumors has it they will have levels created by other Sony studios.

And Media Molecule has already stated they will only allow people to upload 4 maps, and only those who create highly rated maps will be able to upload more.

And Wombat, there is a black man in Top Gun. Maverick's co-pilot after Goose dies is black.

In the Braid demo, you can actually go to more than just World 2. You can visit World 4 and play it quite a bit. It seemed interesting, but...something just kind of irked me about it. It was pretty good, imo, but I'm still trying to justify it, but I am close to. I don't want this to be the future standard, especially ones that are crap. Which for XBLA, the overwhelming majority of games are $10 POS's.

For Wombat about your Diablo 2 problems:

Go to https://www.blizzard.com/store/ and create an account and go to the My Account page. You can enter in your game's CD keys and download a PC or MAC version as a digital download for free, using your old CD keys. And now with this you don't need the CDs anymore for WC3, Diablo 2, Starcraft, whatever your heart desires.

Well, I planned on going to sleep but with a title like that... I just HAVE to listen.

I hope we get an update on Naked Pizza guy. :)

I decided against buying some things I bidded on a lowball auction. Didn't know it'd be a big problem. Sue me.

I really enjoyed the show. I thought it was very funny but very low on content for an hour and a half long show.

In regards to your whole illusion of turning YouTube videos into a video podcast (to become a B-list internet celebrity no doubt) I think it would be really cool if you did a Your Man In Japan video blog that you could send out on iTunes as a podcast. I love hearing about your crazy adventures in Japan (although a bit too much skin showing in that bath-tub video). I don't know how iTunes works but I bet you could list that in many different categories (technology, travel, video games, etc) and get your big dopey face all over the iTunes! Or you can move back to the US and do videos with Wombat. That way we all win (well except for you, but big deal).

Wombat rules.

Some ideas as I listen to the podcast while typing:

I do very much enjoy the idea of going around town with a video camera. You have to do an apartment tour some time and I think it'd be very interesting if you just walked through your apartment, down the Pizza guy elevator to the "hows you're diet going?" Soba place, it'll really give us a connection to what you're talking about in Your Man in Japan.

If you're looking for a new video camera just for YouTube but is still in HD you might wanna go for something like I got, a cheap Flip Camera like the ones this company makes: http://www.aiptek.com/ - I've got the 720p version and it's perfectly average in quality. And they're much cheaper than the $500+ camera you were talking about. But if you're looking for a camera for personal -non CAG use- then yeah. But it's easy to just take the video off a cheap SD card in .MOV (which is really just .MP4) and just edit it from there.

My favorite video's are always the ones that you showcase stuff from Japan whether its Cucumber Pepsi or DS stand or any crap you'd never see in the states.

Yaay. It feels like forever since the last one.

Hopefully, if the title is any indication, this is gonna be a great one.

"CAGcast #130: Negative Womabt"

As much as I like the title Joe Schmoe's Penis World (not very much), the title Negative Wombat would have been so apropos.

Wombat was very negative, and I find it sad you guys don't use your Wii's.

Also, my sister's Wii Fit falls under the 60% category as it collects dust in the corner.

I had a really good time listening to the LittleBigPlanet conversation, and I'm really optimistic for the release of it, and I'm sure it will be really easy to wade through all the Penis Worlds.

I really enjoy the random but unique stuff in Japan that you show in your videos, so I like the idea, especially if you do a "Cheapy on the street" type of a deal where you give a sort of video tour of the various interesting places that you visit.

a small correction for wombat:

the school shooting that inspired "i don't like mondays" happened in san carlos, california. not england. also, the girl didn't just "go out and kill a bunch of people," if i remember it right she was actually shooting from inside her house.

obscure rock trivia, indeed

I know I chew you out a while back, but I have been waiting for you guys to do a video podcast for a long time.
I think the idea of doing a video podcast is a great idea.
Blogs, forums, etc will embed your vids on their site which will help promote cag.
You can also include clips from the video game events that Wombat hosts.
You can also do video game reviews , video game related news clips or show video from the arcades in Japan.

or you can show cool shit in Japan.
Great Idea

Wombat crying about LBP was the low point of the show, good other wise.

Ugh, how many times do we have to hear why Wombat isn't interested in LBP? The devs have said there will be a bunch of included levels as well as a story mode. Do you really think it will be hard to find worthwhile user created content?

As far a value is concerned, LBP is unique in that there will always be new (and arguably better) content. Once people really get a handle on using the tools we'll see some really cool and creative levels.

everytime Cheapy brings it up, I will give my opinion.
