Cheapy, I wonder what your wife's opinion is on you sharing information about your sex life on a podcast that is listened to around the world? :)
My partner would kill me (and then some) if I talked about even half the stuff you do.

Little Big Planet sounded like it was going to be one of the greatest games ever...then we got mushy controls, no ability to import music or graphics (other than blurry PlayStation Eye photos) and now Sony's "moderating" out all of the good user levels. I still like it, but it could have been so much more. It's a shame.

I think you guys need to take a page from the Joystiq book and call the NXE "nixy." It's a lot less clunky to say than "New XBox Experience" and doesn't make me feel half as stupid.

Cheapy, I have a 52" Sony Bravia LCD (1080p and all that). I highly recommend the Sony Bravia line. :)

And wow. What a horrible ad with Burt Reynolds. I'll take the "nice" route and just assume he was trying to add dramatic effect, but that was pretty ridiculous.

Do you guys think that there is any chance of the PSP turning itself aroung next year? Sony has completely abandoned it and I'm really sad to admit what Cheapy said about Sony stoping their production of games. Perhaps there is a franchise that Sony could continue with on the PSP in order to relaunch its popularity. What do you guys think that could be?

Looks like Live is back to normal after a surprisingly short 2 days. However, you guys were right about 360s bricking. 4 of my friends have contacted me in the same weekend about their 360s bricking. I'm going to assume that this is related to the update as I have not heard of any systems dying in a pretty long while.

Hey guys,

I just wanted to know if there was a certain date that we had to sign up for the free Netflix trial by. I want you guys to get pizzaid but I also want to start my trial at a time where I can take full advantage of it. Thanks.

Edit: Sorry, didn't realize it was a double post.

Good show as always. Wombat was right on one thing. That commercial with Burt was ridiculous. It wasn't done to try and hide the cuts, rather they left it in on purpose.

Cheapy, while it is sad that there is nothing coming out for the PSP, maybe Sony has an ace up their sleeve. They might have some titles coming that we have not heard of. Maybe some new first-party titles?

Wombat, gum isn't illegal in Japan. And the dude you made reference to, his name was Michael Faye and he vandalized cars in Singapore with spray paint. Because of that, he was caned.

Great show guys, keep up the good work. I find it funny that you scold Wombat for something falling when you burp straight into the microphone. But I don't mind either.

You mentioned the ability to buy marketplace content online didn't save much time, but I disagree. One great thing is the ability to redeem codes for points and content using the PC keyboard.

Also if you leave your 360 on, or have someone turn it on for you, you could buy new content from work and have it ready for you by the time you get home.

This new feature seems to target a niche audience, but I'm happy for the addition.

PC, DSL, Xbox360 (Dead), PS2.

wombat can you go into more detail about how you haggle for better prices on big ticket items as well as some of the stores you can get away with doing this at. Iv'e heard this mentoed before somewhere else but only for cars. I didn't realize you could do it for tvs and such. What do you usually say and how do you go about initiating that conversation ?

I really need to get my butt into gear in order to get some CAGCast shovelwares out.

I've only made one so far yet I intended on making one per episode released. But I've been busy so I'll make it up to the CAG cast by releasing two at the same time.

I really like contributing something back to the CAG cast for all the hours of free entertainment and joy you've given me over the years.

I was looking forward to this week's CAGcast to no avail :cry:.
I'm stuck downloading and listening to backlogged shows going backwards all the way to April already.

Anyway, I hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving!!
