Sweet, I just opened the forums and it was already here. I'll post something more interesting here after I listen to it if I remember too.

Thanx Cheapy, Wombat and Shipwreck!

That little RSS bump I get saying a new CAGcast is live is priceless.

I hope the 1up layoffs are still in the news to be discussed in next week's show.

1up was my primary 'gaming portal' and the loss of all their podcasts is like 5-6 hours of weekly entertainment gone for me. So that made me sad :(

But a new CAGcast makes me happy!

--Edit: RebelFM? Nick, Phillip and Anthony? SUPER AWESOME. Nick, if you read this, good luck. I loved what you were doing with 1upFM. If you maintain some sort of a public persona I'll watch what you're up to.--

Thanks for another good podcast guys, great way to start the new year. Cheapy seemed really out of it though, sounded like he wanted to get it over ASAP and didn't really care about the content. The first time he really got animated was when the favorite websites of the year were mentioned.

Speaking of your favorite website Cheapy, I recommend www.cheggit.net.

This CAGcast had to be the funniest yet. From Wombat's Cock N Balls, Cheapy's pornhub reference, and Porn Name or DS game. Although it started off depressing with RockSolidAudio getting laid off as well as Wombat not getting paid by UGO anymore, it came back with some of the funniest stuff I have ever heard. Great show guys.

PS. Shipwreck being on the Cagcast permenantly would be amazing.

Downloaded, listen to it tomorrow (it's bedtime for me) - and holy crap. I always had the idea of sending in a message of "Hey Cheapy, what the heck did you look like with hair?" after you retold your story a few weeks ago.
And dammit, while downloading I looked at the show photos and saw some pics, I was like "Who's that? Pizza guy proving he's alive with a box of cereal?" - *Next pic* - "What?" - *Goes back to first pic* - "Ummm, no, that can't be Pizza guy..." - *seconds pass* - "Oh... OH! OH man! He looked weird back then, damn!"

Nice pictures there Cheapy.

Wombat: the fact that you think Terrorist Hunt was something new and thus an inspiration for Horde mode, much less Left 4 Dead shows that you are out of touch with what's available on PC. It's not a new concept whatsoever.

Great show Ship said more than 2 sectences then last time but he didnt make a sound with all the sex jokes and talk between you guys. Wombat wont post pics of his member on UGO after remembering his ex girl friends laughing when they saw it.
I was froze today!

Almost stopped listening after cheapyd was talking about sticking his dick in the 360 and then did stop after the begging for a job for that guy from 1up.

time for a break from this shit I think.

Wombat you really hit the nail on the head with the Geo Wars 2 scoreboard. All games should have that feature for bragging right.

Geo Wars 2 is probably my non-retail pick of the year just over Megaman 9.

... go to sleep.

Great podcast, and a nice gesture by Cheapy to pimp the talents of Nick. Swerv, why did that upset you? Nick was a member of this community before going to 1UP, so why shouldn't we the community want to see him find new work?

Wombat, way to make the connection between Terrorist Hunt and Horde mode, Left 4 Dead. Oh, and great pictures!

I like the Shipwreck inclusion into the Cagcast in recent weeks. He adds an air of respectability and I get the feeling he's like the fact checking robot producer during the entire show.

I'm not a believer in the "Cheapy is a 360 whore" theory, because the 360 is obviously the best choice for the majority of the gaming community right now. It has the biggest and best game library so it only makes sense that the majority of news is skewed toward the 360. Never was this more evident than during the "gamer picks" of the year segment of the show. However, I think that you guys are committing a disservice to Wii owners and perhaps alienating an entire segment of potential listeners by virtually ignoring the Wii on a weekly, and now yearly basis.

You should make more of an effort to play Wii games and become a resource for some of your audience that has gaming aged children. We buy Wi games and might be inclined to buy more were they to have your endorsement and associated linkage. Ignoring games because you don't like them or because of the perceived irrelevance of the Wii may be a good reason for 25 year old joe gamer, but not for someone who makes his living off of the videogame market. Shipwreck doesn't even have kids yet and he's played 10 times the number of Wii games that you and Wombat have combined. Remember that your kids aren't going to be playing Gears of War as soon as they're old enough to hold a controller, and they'll be grown up enough for videogames sooner than you realize.

Try sean white and skate it on the wii fit board. These games have great co-op to play when you have friends over. only problem is foot stank at your party. Listen to Ron & Fez 12pm-3pm eastern xm202/sirius 197.

Oh man... the way you were fairly "meh" about most of the later awards, then suddenly got really vocal and technical when talking about porn sites... that had me laughing out loud for ages.

Very sad to hear about the 1up staff, those guys are awesome.
