Yes 27" imac with 4850 and i5 Quad-core and you won't need a Windows gaming pc. It's only $2k. ORder now. Ships November. Bootcamp for Windows gaming.

There was something that stuck on me from the show, but I forgot what it what was. Ok now I remember. I like your review of Forza where you said "There's just a ton of sht to do."

I can just imagine Wombat calling a game crap and Cheapie saying there's a ton of sht to do or something like that. Ah well there's got to be a joke or angle in there somewhere to go on about.

The monitor is really nice, but they could have put a better graphics card in there.

You're right Wombat, the Wolverine movie sucked. My mom loved it but since I was a faithful X-men reader when I was a kid in the early 90s, the over abundance of characters and the butchering of Deadpool's character killed whatever enjoyment I could have gotten. The special effects was pretty crappy too. The game was so much better.

Oh yeah, why not use Parallels or boot camp on yer Mac for some low level PC gaming? Or are you going for the cutting edge setup for some hardcore grph1x?

Oh, and one more thing- TRAITOR!

I have my reasons for not playing PC games, but the best reason is TIME! I don't have 200 years to play WoW or Diablo or online FPSes or whatever. I have a family. PC gaming is for people without a family.

I definitely got startled playing Fallout 3 with some regularity. I had a thing for wandering around the wasteland and randoms would suddenly appear loudly and scare me. I like being scared that way, like I'm walking around in a game all hum-dee-dum, and WHAM! Something's there to kill you.

Did either of you guys not play Fatal Frame? That was the scariest games I've ever played. My ex-wife really wanted to watch while I played but I didn't last more than 20 minutes into the game before ejecting it and never playing it again.

Oh a side note, I did okay with the girls in high school but things really picked up in college too.

I feel for you Wombat. I actually found out my Gandfather passed under rather tragic circumstances on the 23rd which also happens to be my fathers b-day who passed 4 years earlier which not to mention is the day before my birthday the 24th. It was a pretty bad b- day.

I did get Bordelands for my b-day which isn't that bad although it is a very slowstart and all the backtracking is annoying. Also while the bazillion guns is nice, most are similar in look and stats.

Also, I got into the Facebook and all that stuff and it's really not that great. Last.FM was kind of dumb and boring. Started to piss me off that I could find one song I liked and then the rest was wierd crap I had to turn off. I don't twitter so meh, and the Facebook app was lame. There was not much in the way of anything for now.

Great show!

Very sorry to hear about Grandpa Wombat. I lost my grandfather to cancer in 1996 while I was in college, and it was hard to watch such a strong, accomplished, caring man (and the only grandfather I had, since both my mom's parents died when she was young) slowly waste away. Probably the hardest part was seeing how it affected my dad. It wrecked him. And it wasn't a big stretch to imagine being in his shoes in years to come. Hopefully that's a long way off.

Lay off Cheapy for not eating the entire Windows 7 Whopper. I thought he was smart to leave as much as he did. There's no pride in forcing yourself to eat ungodly amounts of shitty food. Save those calories for something worthwhile. Fuck Burger King.

Speaking of questionable Batman/Superman pairings, have either of you run across The Gayest Comic Ever Printed? Satisfaction guaranteed.

Also, going back to the previous show, Wombat is absolutely right about Duck Tales. That game is legendary. Even my wife, who doesn't play many games, still remembers that one from her youth, citing it as the first and possibly only game she ever beat. They need to bring it back in some form or another. The other remake I would LOVE to see is RC Pro-Am.

Video of the ExciteBike remake looks surprisingly good. Looks as though they've done a good job of preserving the feel of the NES original, but incorporated some of the cool aspects of ExciteTruck and ExciteBots, including the deforming landscapes.

Why all the grief for "wolverine"? It is the movie version, not an adaptation like "The Watchmen". What did you think of that movie? Besides it was an origin movie, Deadpool wasn't the main character, just a bit part explaining his origin in the movie universe. Not the comic book character verbatim.

While not the best comic movie it was still better than "superman returns and bores us to death", "Batman and Robin", "Batman Forever", "Batman Returns", " the spirit", "Ghost Rider","Daredevil", "Electra","Fantastic Four 1 and 2", " The incredible hulk" and "spiderman 3" (which was worse deadpool or venom?...venom by a longshot)

Yes the film looked rushed, and some of the effects cheesey, and the lead actress was atrocious but it was way better than the movies I listed. Comic book fans are the worse movie critics because they want literal adaptations of their favorite heroes and stories. I think the "Watchmen" movie tried this approach and the results were mixed at best. So rating "wolverine" only as a movie only, I thought it was worth seeing in the theater. Not perfect but I could recommend it as a rental or matinee. Certainly not the worst movie in the history of cinema.

The game was great. The movie was for pussies. Problem solved.

Funniest part of the show for me was hearing Wombat talk about looking up old girlfriends to see how fat they got. Um, hello? Maybe they've done that themselves with you, Stuart...you haven't exactly slimmed your way into your 30's, my friend.

They're all probably vomiting into their monitors, thinking about "little Wombat's" early experiences. I'm about to, as well, come to think of it.

Love you Wombat! Play some damned Uncharted 2! Forget about the first one, it's not necessary!

Why doesn't UK CAG track the retailer GAME's prices?

GAME is the UK's largest video game retailer.

Good show guys, thanks again.

Comment to Cheapy - Every time I hear you talk about racing games.. you drive me crazy! You play a fighting game to fight, you play a shooting game to shoot... but for racing games... you want more.. you want to play arts and crafts... you want this and that. Just enjoy the racing game. With that thought you missed out on the entire Motorstorm series and I guess you're probably going to miss out on GT5 since it may not have all the bells and whistles of Forza 3. I'm not bashing, I just think you should enjoy the basic game and worry about the extras later. Also, I'll admit that Forza 3 has added some great features to make it a GREAT game. Especially that replay feature.. I loved it. I hope GT5 copies it... and according to rumors, they will.

Great show Guys you guys remind me of three guys from a "james bond" type of movie.

Agent CheapyD is the bond that is trying to save the day. Shipwreck is the man behind the computer giving cheapy help to stop...DADADA the evil Wombat.

And yes I only posted this to win the PsP game.
