The Riddick demo actually featured a Dark Athena portion of the game. I have to agree that I wasn't all that impressed with it even though I was really into Butcher Bay too. I think the demo didn't really show part of what made Riddick cool, at least in my opinion. The demo seemed to focus on gunfights instead of stealth and interacting with characters.

Hey, cheapy. I just wanted to mention the part in your podcast where the poster mentioned listening to podcasts in monotonous games. I think he could have worded his question better as I also listen to podcasts like yours, foreplay, and you look nice today (thanks for telling me about those guys, wombat) when playing more time-consuming parts in games like Oblivion for instance. Great music, but after awhile it made my ears bleed from overuse so I had to turn the music off and start listening to something else. Doesn't mean it's a monotonous game, just had to find another way to play an otherwise enjoyable game with a new form of ear music.

On having Major Nelson on another CAGcast:

You should ask him why the NXE is so freakin' slow!

Bioshock 2 and the "little brothers" had me cackling like a banshee on my commute home today. Good stuff.

I have to agree about KZ2. The MP features or lack there of (ie party system, friend invites, and etc) kills the game. I still dont understand why after so many good examples in other games devs still cant get this right.

For Wombats comment about the password lock for lobbys on xbox. Its not there because its not necessary on xbox per se. Since you can have private slots open only to your friends. This requires people to be on your friend list though which is a whole different problem though since xbl has the friends limit.

did you and whomever was holding the camera make any more videos in that love hotel that would be banned from youtube?

Oh wow Cheapy. "There's another British bargains site that has a podcast - I've a feeling Jon would want to crush them."

Given that we haven't recorded a show since October I think that might well be the case... :D

There are others? :P Good to know we're not going to get crushed.

Although with CAG 2.0 coming soon I need to get Lewie to pull his finger out and get something going that's more than Blogger. >.<

I liked this podcast. Big ups to you guys. Recently each show keeps getting better and better. This is one of the only podcast that entertains me and informs all in one. Also just to throw this out there, the CagCast should have shipwreck come on more often.

In response to the discussion about backwards compatibility...

I feel that it depends on the console. The PS2 had a lot of great games worth going back to so the PS3 having BC was defnitely called for. The Xbox not so much. The only game that got played with 360 backwards compatibility was Halo 2 and when Halo 3 came out Halo 2 was essential done.

The way the current generation is going backwards compatibility in a sense will be very important. Not so much with software on disc but with digital content. When Rock Band hits the next generation of consoles what will I do with my current batch of songs that has become a massive investment? Same goes with XBLA games. I don't want this stuff to be totally null and void when the next batch of consoles hit.

Awesome show, i dont get to listen to too many podcasts now because i dont have a job, but i had to get out and about today, so i drove around austin looking for a best buy and listened to the show. I have to agree with cheapy about the new Wrestling legends game. I downloaded the demo with low expectations from the show and i have to agree with everything he said. The camera is way to close, the controls being simple are just too hard to grasp for me. i would have much rather had an old port of the wrestlefest arcade game. This is such a dissipointment because i was thinking about picking this game up, but not so much now.
As for the xbox vista slowing down, i did get that problem before i moved, i didnt have many friends on live but it still took 1-2 mins to boot those avatars up, since i have moved to austin, the list has shown within a noticeable difference. i am not sure exactly what is happenin there.

i also dont even think about backwards compatiablity, its really a non issue for me now. i thought when i first got my 360 i would be playing tons of my origianl xbox games, i havent put any of them in the system since i didnt need to play halo2 on it. better games have just been coming out, and while i am happy its there, if it wasnt, i wouldnt notice

keep up the good shows guys :-)

Another incredibly enjoyable show guys. I find fake accents far more amusing then any reasonable individual should...real accents aren't bad either. Anyway Wombat unfortunately was right on about the RE 5 dlc...though whether it's already on the disc or not it's totally obvious that this content has been completed for quite some time. Regardless of the fact it's only going to cost five dollars it's still completely shameless on Capcom's part and I have no plans to purchase it at any price.

Oh and one thing that I can always be certain of on the internet is people always wondering if my username killthemall stands for kill the mall or kill them all. I was very amused to see that minor discussion take place when you read my comment in the cagcast.

Just to clarify when I came up with that handle 5-6 odd years ago I did in fact intend it to stand for kill them all. Not because of love for any Metallica album. Simply because it has and continues to be a phrase I hear exclaimed by the villain in just about any action/war flick and definitely a ton of games I've played.

I liked the phrase so I decided to use it as something of a permanent username across the internet. Funny thing is just about everyone I encounter thinks it stands for Kill the Mall. So I grew attached to that and these days my friends on LIVE mainly refer to me as Mall or KTM.

Thanks for giving props to HotD: Overkill! That game is 20 types of awesome and anyone looking for a "mature" game on the Wii should try it. I just wish I had gotten the comic for preordering at GameStop, but apparently they "ran out" when my gf went to pick it up. I'll just assume that the employees took them all because I doubt they had that many preorders for the game and because they are Worst Retailer of the Year.

Re: CheapyD didn't buy RE5 "because it wasn't made by Apple"

CheapyD is towards the end there (around the 1:36 mark). Funny stuff.

Just messing with ya.

I thought the show was pretty good--not quite as good as the last one, but still entertaining. Props on keeping Jewbeard alive.
One suggestion though: how about trying to do a game segment like you did with "DS game or porno" each episode. (or every couple episodes or something). It changes things up a little bit and keeps things fresh.

Awesome show, I will definitely have to checkout House of the Dead: Overkill, my wii could use a dusting off. Also the fact that anyone would try to tax violence in games is ridiculous. Politicians should be focused on going after all the people who issued bad loans, sold insurance of those bad loans, and passed it all off as AAA investments, not to mention all the other real problems in the world. Maybe if they used the tax to feed starving children, I would feel a little better about it.

Glad you finally watched the latest Indy movie Cheapy. I guess going into it with such low expectations it was easier for you to shrug it off. I had very high hopes when I went to see it (midnight showing) and nearly left the theater. There was a dude dressed as Indy watching the movie, and after it was over he took his hat off and tried to be super inconspicuous as he walked to his car. Dude must have felt like the biggest tool with his whip...

I do have to agree with you 100% on the end, I COMPLETELY thought that Mutt was going to pick up the hat at which point I was going to go ballistic. The only saving grace of that movie was that it didn't go down like that, and Indy picked up his hat at the end.

Still, giant steaming pile of shaq-fu.

Wombat, there has always been one Ultimate Warrior.

CheapyD, wouldn't Wrestlefest on the XBLA be the shit?

Well, I had a comment about the Riddick demo. This is a prime example of the "bad demo" situation (just like Dead Space.) Throwing someone right into combat, especially stealth combat without any clue what to do really makes the demo poor. The dead space demo did the same thing, they threw you into heavy combat without and idea how to defeat the monsters.

I found that after I "remembered" how to fight in Butcher Bay, I went back and had much more fun with the new Riddick demo the second time.

Does CheapyD have some sort of awful voice filter going on in this thing? (This is probably the 2nd or 3rd I've listened to.) His voice is god awful deep and annoying. Not sure if I am missing something. Can't even listen to this cast.

Just wrapped up listening to the podcast, and I have to agree with a few things. Like the listening to podcasts, and not even being able to function without my full attention. After listening to where you guys were talking about the Resident evil mulitplayer, and it being announced with a price tag for maybe an unlock key? Or is this a dlc for the coming weeks? Cheapy you need to stand up with your open letter to capcom to stop this ridiculousness.

Other than that I just enjoyed it, and have been since you guys were talking about MGS4 back in June when I started listening. Also need to play with you sometime again cheapy on killzone, and also it was great having the game night wombat. Just have to ensure that cheapy gets in the room first I suppose before all the CAGs fill it up first.

Well Wombat called it, $5 for the versus mode on RE5, which is probably already on the disc. I think that it is despicable to charge for content that should be part of the game. What next, start charging to unlock the ability to use weapons in a FPS? I don't care if the versus gameplay is as good as Yahtzee's infamous triple-cunted hooker (Zero Punctuation, look it up if you don't know) they aren't getting my money.

Awesome podcast guys, The CAGcast seems like my new Saturday Morning Cartoons lol.
Also I was wondering whatever happened to CheapAssGamer Mobile?
I wanted to see look up updated Kmart Clearance prices AT Kmart, but my PSP has a hard time getting on the actual site, so after some browsing on google, I saw there was a CheapAssGamer Mobile, but to my dismay it look liked it was abandoned after 2006.
What happened to this neat concept?
