Wombat: 2008 Father of the Year!

Also, the McDonald's stuff is weird.

I too have had the same problems with the NXE as Cheapy where it hangs on me, in games especially. I am worried that my system is going to be bricked with a future update, as most of my friends have said this does not happen to them.

Thanks for reading my question Cheapy. I suppose I could clarify my question a little more for the people who take the same amount of offense from dissing one of their favorite games as to calling their mother a whore. The infrastructure of Little Big Planet is broken, yes broken. I like the core idea of the game but the campaign is really short and once you go online you are of course not ever going to see (or at least I don't) the level of quality on the player created levels. Take the first five pages of the cool levels section. I can guarantee you that 90% of those levels, which consists of far too many trophy levels than I ever want to see again, are not worth being there. Who wants to go online, look for good levels there, and type in each level to the search bar one by one? That is broken to me. Oh, and cheapy I do remember the beta comments but that was on such a small scale from what the final product would cover that it might not have been a best indicator for the final game...turns out it was.
PS. The only thing better than big ass chains is throwing people into helicopter blades while looking like a fat tranny in a thong...BOOYA

EDIT: And how the hell would you convince Wombat to get in the sex chair?!

He had a choice on 360 (because we all know he wasn't going to touch the PSN version). His choices were a shitty, shitty d-pad or an analog stick.

Yay a new CAGcast.

I'll get started on a shovelware I guess.

If you have any requests for what section you would like done then PM me.

I was thinking about the whole Wombat and Cheapy spending the day together ;D and that popcorn bag with a hole in it. :bouncy:

Just a thought.

CheapyD you were right on the money with Amazon, they really dominated the Black Friday madness this year.

I'm also glad you touched on the death of the Wal-Mart employee, Jdimytai Damour. I want to be surprised but when I heard the news I wasn't. It didn't really occur to me till you talked about it that his death was for a discount, a meaningless, senseless death.

Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

You weren't imagining your wife's avatar appearing in the new Scene It, Cheapy. I have several profiles on my xbox, one for each of my friends who come over to play, so they all made avatars. Four of us were playing Scene It, which filled the couch, but late in the game there was a very brief sequence that showed my avatar dancing with that of my girlfriend (who wasn't playing the game)! That was a nice touch. More of that and less of the announcers would make the game better.

I have a couple of the old themes, and while the main one is cut off, I can actually see more of the other pictures if I go to the page and scroll all the way over until there is only one menu blocking the left side. Microsoft needs to allow customization so we can get rid of the floor and choose which background goes behind which submenu.

I just wanted to take a minute out of my day to thank you and damn you to hell all in one quick post: based on your recommendation, I bought Saints Row 2 for the PS3, and it has consumed my life.

The "thanks" part: for introducing me to such an amazingly fun series.

The "damn you to hell" part: because every second of gaming time over my 6-day Thanksgiving vacation was spent playing Saints Row 2, rather than catching up on my massive backlog.

Like many gamers / suckers, I bought GTA IV on day one, and quickly concluded that it was simply over-rated, frustrating, tedious gameplay wrapped in a pretty new shell. Now that I'm a Saints Row 2 addict, the flaws in the GTA formula are that much more apparent. The bottom line is: I've played about 40 hours of Saints Row 2, and every minute of it has been REWARDING and FUN AS HELL; it's a game for true gamers, and is a reminder of why I fell in love with videogames in the first place: pure, unadulterated fun.

Oh, and here's a hook to get Wombat interested: the character creator in Saints Row 2 is even deeper than Elder Scrolls 4; and being able to make a character that suits your tastes--rather than a someone like Niko that nobody likes or can relate to--makes the entire experience so much more engrossing.

...I have Dead Space, Fallout 3, LBP, Resistance 2, and Valkyria Chronicles waiting for me at home, yet all I want to do is get back to Stillwater City and work on my Hit Man and Chop Shop lists!

Thanks, and damn you to hell ;)

CheapyD Playing with the Analog Sticks guarantee he sucks at ever street fighter game

great show! that books seems like it would be an interesting read. also i think the reason with the fighting games in japan are head to head because if it isn't, sometimes players shake the cabinet too much, or they take more room etc.

I had seen the new Indiana Jones movie in theatres, I really didn't think it was all that bad but it could have been better. After listening to your comments on the movie I think I may have realized I may be in denial. The movie really wasn't that great and it was a little over the top even for an Indiana Jones story.

With all this in mind and knowing you read comic books, I think it would have been much better if they went ahead with an already established story. The story I had in mind was Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. This story had both a PC adventure game and a graphic novel. It was obviously fairly popular and I'm sure fans would have loved it.

I totally agree with you in regards to the NXE. I really don't like it at all compared to the old dashboard. I don't understand how they can say that the new dashboard is more user friendly when I can't even find things when I want to. For example, where the hell did the "Free Stuff" category go for themes and gamer pics? Did they get rid of it completely or just hide it in 50 sub menus so that no one can find it? It just seems like there are even more menus than before which makes it even harder to navigate.

Do you guys think that 2008 was the death of the Black Friday 'Running of the Bulls' type sales? In a world were major retail chains advise employees not to say Merry Christmas for fear of offending somebody, will they want to risk a plethora of potential law suits derived from Black Friday disasters?

It would be very easy for somebody to purposefully fall on the outside of mob, get ruffed up while avoiding any big risk, then sue for large sums of money.

That didn't take long.

Hey CheapyD and Wombat,

Another great show as always.

But I'm really starting to get frustrated with you guys and your movie criticisms. I thought Indy Jones 4 was a fun movie. Sure, it can't compare to "Raiders", but then, if you went in to the movie expecting that, then of course you are going to be disappointed. Not too many movies can live up to that classic.

But Indy 4, for what it was, was great. It had action, humour, whips, some good chase scenes - everything an Indy movie needs. Yes, there was too much CG, but that's par for the course these days.

I think you guys need to lighten up a little. I think you've forgotten how to have fun watching a movie.

*Yes Cheapy you are correct about the 360 hanging during random occasions. I noticed some serious freezing during Saints Row 2 and I kept blaming the disc. After finishing SR2, I tried other games and the system continues to freeze about every 2 times I turn it on. It makes me scared and reminds me of times where my past four systems were just about to brick.
It's not just me either. Many friends have contacted me with the same problems.

*Microsoft should be including one of their first-party, quality games in the Xbox 360 bundles that will appeal to everyone and showcase the 360's graphical power, rather than including two licensed games that may only appeal to fans of the Kung Fu Panda and Indiana Jones movies. Perhaps the new Scene It game would show off the use of avatars, and the online community. Or maybe Fable II to bring in the people who were fans of the first game on the original Xbox. Wombat is correct in saying that the 360 should be showing off its quality to make a good first impression, not any random games that publishers probably have stacks of lying around in warehouses.

PS. Cheapy, are you planning on truly completing the story in SR2 by playing the secret epilogue mission? I must say that it's a blast.
