Grats on the new mic JUANBOT. It seems like the audio is just a smudge cleaner.

Wall-e is a very good movie, they did a good job presenting the utopian and dystopian themes. Make sure you also watch the short film as well on the DVD/Blu-ray "Presto" has to be my favorite short by Pixar so far.

Over the past couple of weeks, the dashboard both in-game and out on my 360 has become less responsive, and pretty much everything Wombat said about it is a feeling I share. I'd also like to add that due to the pricing structure Microsoft has on their hard drives, with the install feature, I feel that they've turned the 360 into the HD version of the Wii with their storage space for the majority of 360 ownerss. You don't need to install games (like you don't need to buy Virtual Console games), but you want to anyway.

I feel the show was really good this week mainly because of Wombat seemingly taking the lead on the show with information and insight.

Me too.

Also, I have to install my 360 games otherwise I get a DRE almost every time I try to play a game. And with only a 20gb drive, I had to delete almost all my xbla games just so I can have more than 1 game intstalled at a time.

Same, I love how accessible the PS3 interface is. (Also I upgraded it to 250gb, so I never worry about my space being filled - compared to my 360 with only 20gb is a nightmare). I've been buying all Multiplatform titles on my PS3 due to the ease/quickness of the XMB.

For some reason my 360 Friend list takes literally 1-2 minutes to load. It's insane.

Look forward to listening to this episode! I enjoy just Wombat and Cheapy.

Hey Cheapy, I know your fan of Mashups. My favorite mashup site is The Hood Internet and you can find all the songs at http://www.hoodinternet.com for download and http://www.imeem.com...music_playlist/ for your streaming pleasure. Brush off those haters Wombat.

I have to disagree with the Xbox Vista comment. Mostly because I find the "new" Xbox Experience to be easier to access things than it was on the old version. Though I probably don't have the lag people have on their friends list, because I only have about 6 friends. And I know to look at messages when I'm not in the middle of a game, or about to begin one.

it's sad how people judge your cagcast just by the title, you probably lost one listener but who cares? when i saw the title of last weeks cagcast i knew that it was a joke instantly. first of all because i do understand sarcasm, secondly because i know that you make jokes all the time.( and that is by the way one of the main reasons why i listen to the cagcast).

You guys are crazy! :P

I love the new dash. Everything is so much faster now. My list of games/achievements now loads instantly when it used to take 10-15 seconds. My friends list also loads pretty fast, but I don't have 100 friends on there. I have 52. The list loads pretty much instantly while the avatars take a little less than 10 sec to load.

Ugh I don't know how someone could miss the old dash. It was so bad...

Nice show guys. I think the community gaming night is a good idea; if it wasn't, there wouldn't be so many of them around! ;)

Also, the intro song was horrible. Bring back the user-made CAG theme songs! "Everyday I'm Cheap As Shit" is a classic!

Also x 2:

Cheapy, 50 Cent's game was actually $50 on Amazon, so maybe publishers are more open to pricing experiments.

LULZ, at all the Wii hate. Cheapy D- "'a breezy weekend diversion with some fun game-play and sub-par graphics . . . ' Sounds like what they should put on the Wii console's box!"

I have to say I still really like the "Xbox Vista". For me, it is a lot faster than the blades. I hit the guide button and can instantly navigate through it with absolutely no lag. I only have around 20 friends so maybe that has something to do with it. For the record, I have a very old 360, I think the manufacture date is 2/2006.

EDIT: Sorry, but I like not having the "CAGs on News" theme song. The high pitch voice is ear piercing.

I have to agree completely with Wombat's frustration over the comments he received at GoNintendo - hardcore Nintendo fans are probably the most feral, stubborn, and ridiculous people around the gaming community. Sony fans sometimes come close, but Nintendo fans are by far the worst.

So no worries, Wombat - reasonable people who actually listened to what you had to say agreed with you. ;)

I haven't listened to the show yet but I did have a comment.

In the past we the listeners have given you flak for the way you run the front page. You and Wombat may joke about our comments but the quality/usefulness of the front page has varied since the CAGcast started winning awards. You told us you would work on that and maybe some of us felt that was an empty promise designed to placate us. I just wanted to let you know that I for one have noticed a difference lately and I appreciate it. I see the deals you've been posting and while I might not partake in all of them. I apprecaite seeing them. Thank you.--

P.S. Heck yeah Q-Unit. after that Kanye mix I was gonna show you the Q-Unit but apparantly you already know what's up.
