Not the response I was expecting out of Cheapy after the whole racist scandal from last show, but props to you for not giving in because it's your show and you can say whatever you want.

Haha...I just checked that last thread and I think I need to make it a point to check these threads more often.

Wombat, the game you were playing in Professor Layton was Digital Digits - the one that asks you to find times of day with three digits in a row. It's one of my favourite puzzles ever.

And yeah, the first time I did it I had to do a similar thing :P

dammit i was gonna say that :/

also, in regards to RE5 vs mode, if anyone wants to play, hit me up on live :P

Capitalization is the difference between I helped my uncle Jack off a horse and I helped my uncle jack off a horse.

Don't care about ads. But I do have a problem with nav bar going away on the home page. I used to click on the Deals link to go right to the Deals forums and now it's gone replaced with a huge search bar. Why couldn't you keep both?

Hi, I'm black guy #6. I was slightly offended last show when you assumed Wombat was talking about a black person at Wendey's cause stupid people come in all races. Also I'm not going to give fake threats how this is my last time listening to the Cagcast like the other people did. I loose a little respect for you making the comment, but you will have to piss me off several more times before I just stop listening all together.

Guys, why the hell are you doing news reported first by the HipHopGamer? He makes up shit like the Xbox Live V.I.P thing and the Gran Turismo on the PSP thing to get hits. It has even been proven that he makes his shit up. Come on guys, step up.

Great interview by the way with Nelson Rodriguez.

I think one of the reasons for GTA chinatown wars' slow sales is the fact that the protagonist is an asian dude, thats the retail kiss of death if it doesn't involve kung fu. If Faith had been an ugly asian guy instead of an ugly asian chick EA would have been even more disappointed..

Sure piracy on the ds is rampant but I dont know how you can use that to justify fewer sales when other ds titles are no less immune to piracy.

I thought wombat made a really good point with the RE5 maps limited audience though.Also great interview with minor nelson, would like to hear more from him.

Oh also wombat mentioned he gets moppy when he gets criticised, you know that kinda sucks, I made some disparaging comments aimed at wombat in the past, I think I'll put a little more thought into what I say, I don't mean to say those things just to be an asshole but they probably come across that way sometimes.

Damn it Cheapy, I just saw that awesome Mega Man 2 rap you used as your intro a few days ago and just FINALLY got it out of my head, only to have it rear it's head again!

My name is Bubble Man and I've got something to....DEAD!

I loved Cheapy's opening comments about Nelson:
"his dreams came true and were, uh...torn to pieces"

that was a good interview with Minor Nelson, too bad he lost his trabajo. I was suprised to hear that Major Nelson was married, he sounds like he is light in the loafers. I differ to Wombat on that one, his gaydar is finely tuned.

Cheapy, you eat terrible food all the time. No wonder you weigh too much and have high cholesterol. Try this out (adapted from the dieting portion of Bill Phillips' Body for Life program, which is great if you want to really change how you eat, work out, and make yourself look way better).
1. Eat six meals of smaller portions per day.

2. Those meals should have one portion of a lean protein, like chicken breast or lean red meat, and one portion of good carbohydrates, like a potato, brown rice, or whole wheat bread. A portion size is either the size of your closed fist, or the size of your palm.

3. Eat vegetables a few times a day.

Just stay away from white rice, white bread, sugar (switch to something like splenda), and bad fats. There are good fats, like olive and flaxseed oil, and avocado.

I don't really know why I'm typing this out for you, but you may want to give it a try. You'll lose weight, feel better (great dumps, but lots of gas from all the fiber), and be healthier. There's more info on the Body for Life website. I did this for a few months and lost thirty pounds, and got way stronger as well from all the working out.

Cheapy, you said you were watching WCG nefariously. Why? You can just go to hulu and watch pretty much any show. That's what I do...

you can watch all of the ultimate gamer episodes that have aired already on HULU. its an ok show but alot of the people on it dont seem like theyre that good at gaming. i think the shows not doing so well since theyre supposed to be cutting it down to the final 2 on the next episode and theres like 4 or 6 people left. the halo 3 themed episode was pretty good. you should have that guy back on the cagcast definelty one of the funniest shows ever if not the funniest. and if he does bring his podcast back im gonna check it out.

I've heard that song before, elsewhere.

Not just at the beginning of other CAG interviews, either (I think he put it on another one before).

I've only listened to about half the show because I was really tired, however its been REALLY good so far, one of the best shows. Nelson is awesome, I don't think I ever truly appreciated him, like I watched pick up & play every week but never the podcast. The three of your worked well. Definitely get his ass on the show more often.



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.

Wow the interview was damn good favorite show by a long show, Nelson is a really down to Earth guy sucks that I missed him when he had his show hopefully it starts up again!

The other part had a lot of energy and I thought it was a big comeback from a missed show

Cheapy I am always looking for fun cheap games on my Ipod Touch. Please continue to give a shout out to any that you find.

Wombat maybe you should ask for a Touch or Iphone for your upcoming b-day.

And I agree 100% with Flight Control that game is great.

Why does this contest exist?
Isn't it like some Russian company that makes Xblades?
Is this piecemeal of GDC indie or something?

Just downloaded Sky Burger and played a round on the can. Pretty decent but it feels like I'll get sick of it after a couple days.

Cheapy you have to pick up Baseball Superstars 2009. I'm not a baseball fan but My League mode is the best thing on iPhone since Porn Hub's mobile site.

Speaking of all the Guitar Hero games, is there anyway for the CAG price tracker to differentiate between the Guitar Hero standalone games and instrument bundles?

I am famous for getting CheapyD to watch Swollen Tip while he was broadcasting live.

Well, according to E*Master from the Cross Border Gaming podcast, you can't access Hulu in Canada. I guess it's just US only.
