Staying alive in a fridge from atomic blast is the same difference as the ark melting some evil nazis face. Its just that as kids we believed it and thought it was awesome, where as now, surviving a nuclear bomb in a fridge is just stupid. But I bet if we were kids and watched the new one, it would be super cool.

Just my theory anyway.


I disagree on your comparison. Sure the ark's power is not realism, but it's supposed to be magical/mystical/whatever. The fridge is not magical. It's just a fridge. "Behold the power of the almighty" holds a little more weight than "behold the power of lead".

Unquestionably though, as Cheapy said, the only good part was the very last scene

I have to disagree with the Indy 4 talk......the worst part of that movie is Karen Allen! Why is that woman smileing from ear to ear in every scene???

No, Karen Allen is awesome and was criminally underused. Though, didn't she smile all the time in Raiders? Either way, I could watch that smile all day.

Love the podcast been listening to it for a long time now, at least a year. Was inspired to sign up by the others outed in the show.

As an American living in Scotland, am very grateful for the deals found here in the U.K. And would love to hear what Super Programmer John has to say as well if he ever did his own podcast.

I have to say I am really intrigued by the rumors of this new PSP4K. I would really like to see a device that is completely flashed based memory, no more UMD. What would really make this device a killer device would be to include a touch screen and a QWERTY keyboard. This would allow the device to be a much better web machine then the iPhone. Also SONY should spend a little time with the music playing software in the PSP, really make the user experince comparable to the iPod and ZUNE. Now the down side for me is I have had a PSP since launch, and have a library of about 15 games for the PSP. So now what am I suppose to do with all my UMDs, if the device is completely flash base. My idea would be that Sony sponsors a trade in program where you mail your UMDs into SONY and they send you codes to download those games from the PSN store. This would benefit SONY and its developers in two ways. First it would generate sales from loyal long time users such as me to buy a new PSP4K. Second it would then take a bunch of UMDs out of circulation, then those UMDs are not showing up at Gamestop and being resold over and over again helping developers of the PSP platform.

By the way Cheapy, the new PSN Store on the PSP is really nice you don’t need a computer you can attach directly to the PSN store and download games, demos, and video straight to the device without the need to attach it to the computer. It looks just like the PSN store on the PS3. Although I will say the connection speed is super slow just like the PS3 store.

Wombat, I am curious, you say that you like to purchase music through legal means to help support the artists. But everyone knows that very little of the money from CD & online sales goes to the actual artists, yet you seem to have no such loyalties to game developers as you routinely purchase used games and sell used games. Kind of thinking there is a double standard here, care to share your thoughts?

I absolutely appreciate backwards compatibility. I bought a 360 after not owning an Xbox, and played through Halo 1 and 2 on it, as well as Psychonauts - games I wouldn't have played if the functionality wasn't there because I had a PS2 the previous generation.

Now that I have a PS3, it really fucking irks me that if I want to play Shadow of the Colossus again or, even worse, play through the MGS series in preparation for MGS4, I have to hook up a whole other system. It always astounds me that they aren't including the feature as standard in either machine - it's super cheap technology.

Backwards compatibility is good. Obviously, you are a later adopter of the PS3 since you can not play the PS2 games. I enjoyed the full backwards compatibility for the launch of the 20 and 60 gig PS3. What I did not like was the emulated piece of garbage the 360 offered. Sure you can not tell the difference, but having to wait several months for them to update it to get more titles on is a pain. When Sony did that, it only irked me more as a consumer. Would Sony have done that if Microsoft had the built in drive to play all X-Box games? Does Microsoft even update there BC list anymore? Even on the DSi there is no more backwards compatibility. It seems as though that BC is now a dying format and it is not good for the consumer. After all, why would a company want to support a system they no longer make games for. The only company that sems to be able to profit off of BC would be used game stores since Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo no longer sell new older gen games and are primarly focusing on the current generation.

On having Major Nelson on another CAGcast:

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

While I admit that I do listen to Major Nelson most weeks, I cannot believe that Microsoft lets such a nerd be the "mouth" of Microsoft. I am almost proud of them for not having some d-bag do a hipster show or some hot chick do a "why xbox is cool" show.

Anyway, great show Cheapy and Wombat.

It's funny, I listened to the podcast while I was at work trying to put out a few fires. The only things I remember are:
Wombat mentioning his grocery shopping
Both Wombat and Cheapy saying that they can't listen to podcasts while doing other things, as they lose track of what's going on...

And yeah, I lost track of what was going on in the show. Alas.

Silly work.

I loved the talk about the last indy movie. I was laughing out loud. The fridge was terrible and aliens, seriously aliens, I almost threw the disc in the trash when i saw that. Great show.

Cheapy and Wombat,
I think one of the main reasons your show doesn't have the number of listeners that Rebel FM, etc do is because you guys dont play games! In almost every episode each of you only play one real game (not counting DLC or demos). Pick up a few games and play them an hour or so each and post your thoughts as you progress through the game. People listen to podcasts to hear YOUR thoughts on games not just get news they can read at Kotaku in 5 minutes. Also, why don't you guys bring back the "Old Game You Should Pick Up for Cheap" segment? That was an awesome piece for CAGs. You could also each pick up a game for an hour or two a week from the previous generation of consoles that you never got around to finishing. Keeping a consistant realease of podcasts without skipping weeks would also help too. Even a quick 30 minute show would be fine. I'll always be a listener of the CAGcast and keep up the great show!

Great podcast guys!

At this rate, you'll have a large cast of characters to join the likes of Jewbeard and British Cosby.

Also, are we going to have a CAG game night next Sunday? Can I recommend Left 4 Dead?

Wombat, I think we should have a Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts game night at some point. I'm sure there were a bunch of us who picked up the game when it was on sale on Amazon for $20. :bouncy:

Japan has a penis festival every year. It's a popular thing and they celebrate phallic symbols (at least as far as I know).

The Live E3 podcast sounds like a good idea. Maybe invite some people in the game industry as well.

Damn fine show....jew bread your the man.

Jew BREAD. LOL. Good times.

I agreed with the feedback that Wombat/Jew Beard/Bread needs to do dramatic readings of pretentious reviews, or really anything that needs mocking.

Love you guys, keep up the good work.

I love how your Cheapy's wife has had her named mentioned in many things on the cagcast and numerous other videos. But for some reason, she's ashamed of the hotel video.

I'm pretty sure that means that she was really into it in a naughty way. Cheapy probably had the best sex of his life.

Nice show guys.

I agree that Sony should go the UMD-less route for the PSP2. Just add another analog nub, make the wireless features robust, and stuff as much HDD capacity as you can it it. Sony really needs to embrace the Steam/iTunes/whatever model of DL-only for their games. Or at least make it an option if they don't want to screw over retail stores.

From what I hear, a lot of games work (or at least get some kind of attention) on the iPhone because they're cheap; people are receptive to these micro-games because their $1-$2. I don't see why Sony can't set something up that's similar where devs can create these small titles and sell them on the cheap. That way, they'd have the best of both worlds: cheap, micro-games for $1 - $5, and fuller games that cost $20 - $30.

Hey CheapyD & Wombat, you guys mentioned that you had those Turtlebeach surround sound head/mic sets and you've spent so much time talking about how you're playing Killzone 2 I am wondering: What microphones are you guys using on your PS3 multiplayer sessions? I've only had my PS3 since Christmas and I want to yell at people online already like I do on my PC during Left 4 Dead.

Wombats British Cosby voice was very annoying. It would be greatly appreciated by yours truly if you refrained from doing that again. k thx.
