It's just the thing about only giving access to a finished section of the site to a small amount of people instead of releasing it for everyone when it's four months past due.


Well said.
Insert clever line here......

add the words "we hope" to Cheapy's sentence and remember he still needs this new service to be tested.

Great show guys! I liked the format for going over what everyone's favorite games were. Nice work by Bukkakke-san to put it together.

DS or Porno was great.

Well done, Wombat.

Great show guys. To me personally I loved that shipwreck was in this week's CAGcast. Ship just seems so knowledgeable about games because of the CAG Foreplay podcast, it really adds an extra touch to it. Although I am still a big fan of the CAGplay Forcast, personally I don't find it as humerous as the CAGCast which drops it down a notch for me.

I really liked how you did it system by system and all of you didn't go for games like Fallout 3, or Left 4 Dead, or GTA IV. It doesn't matter if I liked the big releases or not, hearing games like Professor Layton or Saint's Row 2 really gave you guys a lot of credibility in my book. A lot more credibility than most other gaming sites, where each goty list has the same rehashed list. I can really relate to you guys, and that makes you my favorite Video Game podcast (besides CAGForplay, both are excellent). This episode only backed up my feelings why you are my favorite(s) podcasts for video games.

It's not really a CAGcast without an awkward moment, and Cheapy didn't disappoint! Cheapy kept going on and on about anyone wanting to hire a guy who loves playing & talking & writing about videogames should hire RockSolidAudio... meanwhile his two unpaid co-hosts - who fit the same profile - remain silent.

on a related note, shipwreck and wombat still have jobs.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

This weeks podcast was a very refreshing look at the best games of the year through the eyes of Cheapy, Wombat, and the Shipwrecks.
I listen to several other podcast and most of the discussion was GTA 4, MGS 4, and Fallout 3 but this was not so on the Cagcast. Some very interesting game choices were made, making for a very interesting and enjoyable "game of the year" show. With this absolutely ingenious format, you guys easily had the best 2008 wrap up show out there. Keep up the fantastic work.

Wombat, it was kinda cold how a couple of shows ago, you plug a game (DC vs Mortal Kombat), talked all good about it, and now you totally throw it on the trash pile. lol Couldn't you have picked another game. I figure you'd be more criitcal of the game because it has chracters you love, as I would be more critical of a game that was about Voltron or Robotech.

Cheapy,

Just to reinforce your point (albeit it about Saints Row 2), I initially thought Saints Row was a bargain bin budget title. It never really interested me. But many CAGcasts ago, you spoke so highly it of it, I figured I'd give it a try. And to my surprise I ended up loving it. It's now one of my favorite 360 games and I liked it more than GTA4.

In an unrelated point, I enjoy Shipwreck on his own show with Mrs. Shipwreck (who sounds like she desperately wants out of the podcast business) but I don't particularly enjoy the chemistry on the CAGcast with a third person. Nothing against Shipwreck personallly, but the show just doesn't seem to flow as well.

No, I don't want out of the podcast business. I just want less stupid games to preview. With our new format of not previewing EVERY GAME (i.e. all the crap), I think the show will be much more enjoyable for all. :D

Thank you Cheapy, Wombat & Shipwreck for not using the :bs: phrase of "Best of" games for your '08 picks! Just as Wombat was anal several episodes ago about the usage of "mediocre" and "average," I am anal about every other pick list from '08 being called a BEST OF list.
For example, Cheapy's pick for his favorite game was Saint's Row 2. How many other "best of" lists would that be on? These are PERSONAL PICKS from individual editors and etc., and thank you guys for calling them as such!
Rant aside, fantastic wrap-up show! The DS or Porn Title game was hilarious, much fun to play along with. And does anyone think the phrase "Bukkake-san" has EVER been used before?
If not there should be a record of it somewhere...

Dang, was looking forward to you guys reading the comments for the last cagcast... how convenient. :roll:

ANYWAYS, Shipwreck gained major respect points for this weeks CAGCast. I love how organized he was and that he listed every game you guys played this year (i've always wanted to do that for myself, but it seems like to much work) so it's nice hearing GOTY's that didn't come out last week (all I have been hearing from other Podcasts is "Left 4 Dead"! Great game... but 08 was a year long).

Really well done Shipwreck! You've almost fully recovered from your "I Hate Shipwreck" points (cause of the LBP hate...) I may just start listening to the CAG Foreplay!

And Wombat, way to go man! Totally surprised on your GOTY. That's awesome, I really thought you hated on that game while you were playing it... and at Cheapy's GOTY... come on man...

I got the animation bug where your character gets stuck and doesn't walk - luckily, it spontaneously resolved itself. Had that been a permanent thing, I wouldn't have played another second of the game. I understand what you're getting at!



Oh yeah, I think I remember you mentioning that on the show. I've never run into that one but I can see that as a real pain as well. Unless there's a new patch coming in the near future, I don't really see myself picking it up and trying again, I'm just too frustrated with it.

Go get Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ for the DS. It's $20 and it has zombies! Oh and it doesn't suck. Ship will be jealous.

I agree whole heartedly with Wombat and Shipwreck about Rainbow Six.
Bloody brilliant game and I have also spent many many hours playing Terrorist Hunt. So addictive.

oh... and great show by the way.
Have a great new year!

First cagcast that I've ever listened to twice. The only other podcast that gets this sort of treatment is the smodcast. I could listen to those all day when I'm bored.

That's good that you guys changed the format, becuase you've been saying for a long time that you were tired of previewing all the crappy games.
