Cheapy's Blade Runner review was dead on.

Cheapy, you should go about listing the song title from now on in your show notes. I absolutely dig most of the songs you choose for the intro.

Nevermind, I'm dumb.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is completely one of the scariest kids movies of all time. I refused to watch it in middle school and most of high school. The really kicker was Violet who had to get 'squeezed'.


I thought they were saying it was scary because of the underlying pedophilia.

CheapyD vs. Wii

Seriously, Cheapy? I don't play my Wii very often, sure. But you're trying to not play your Wii. I don't understand why. House of the Dead: Overkill deserves Wombat's recommendation. It is a lot of fun especially in co-op, though you might be stuck there. New Super Mario Bros. Wii, de Blob, Wario Land, Excitebots, LostWinds are all fun games.

Twisted Metal

Wombat, did you play Twisted Metal: Head On? They put it on PS2 for $20 and it's a lot of fun.

On you guys talking about what major PlayStation franchises haven't made the jump to the PS3 you forgot to mention Ape Escape! I've been waiting to hear about the next Ape Escape for a while and I'm sure other people are waiting for a sequel, too.

Hey CheapyD, while I know you were indifferent to the Conan/Leno controversy, Howard Stern portrayed Jay Leno as a evil opportunist. He had a theory that Leno was expecting for Conan to fail on the Tonight Show, which sounds a little paranoid, but plausible. I do feel sorry for Conan though, he really got screwed over by all of this mess.

Anyway, I did think this episode was great. I totally agree with you on your point that Project Natal will NOT draw in the casual demographic. The way I see it is that the Xbox 360 really isn't a family friendly console. In my years of buying dozens of 360 games, I can't think of any kid-friendly blockbuster title on the platform. Instead, the hits that come to my mind are Grand Theft Auto, Gears of War, Halo, etc. Nintendo does have approachable titles that both new and veteran gamers can enjoy, regardless of age. That is why New Super Mario Bros. Wii did sold so many copies, even though the average Wii owner may not be all that interested in video games.

But that one of five, is worth the risk. Nice post though, if you like mediocre comments.

Wombat's jokes are often so witty that you do get a long pause as Cheapy's (and my) brain try to process them. They most always end in a laugh though.

Another mediocre show by legendarily mediocre trio.

I didn't say any of those PSP games should be Shipwreck's game of the year, but that there were qualities releases that Shipwreck ignored when he said no good PSP games came out in 2009.

As for Shadow Complex, you just select New Game when you go to continue and you start from the beginning at the same level you left off at. As for the bugs, I knocked guys through wall with melee, robots and enemies would easily get caught on walls and start violently shaking, and a barrel even rolled over me and I had to reload my save since nothing got it off of me. If you played for achievements, it required a few playthroughs to get everything.

I think the Giant Bomb guys get paid by WhiskeyMedia, which they answered in a video of their PAX presentation.

I like how Wombat shit on Calling All Cars for having only a few maps while PAIN is his favorite PS3 game of all time.

Twilight Princess wasn't bad, it was just kind of boring and had nothing new that was worth playing it for. It's good that Nintendo's going back to the drawing board and figuring out what a Zelda game really should be.

Good show.

Interesting note on Calling All Cars. They took down the online servers for it this past week.

Avatar will be one of the first Bluray 3D movies coming out this year. The previous decade was all about HD, this decade seems to be about 3D HD. The recent CES showcased 3D tvs for your home. Hey Wombat, exercise bike, really? Nobody uses those things after the first month of buying them, save your money. Ship, South Park is still great, you can watch all the episodes uncensored online www.southparkstudios.com . I'd also highly recommend SQUIDBILLIES on cartoon network if you like funny adult cartoons.

Good show, I agree with everyone's opinion on the Vitality Sensor and the Shitbox, and Cheapy's review of Twilight Princess. It was an ok game that was overrated because it was a Zelda game.

But note how nearly every tech reviewer, from gdgt to Attack of the Show, didn't find it compelling. Since resoultions and refresh rates have hit the wall of what human beings can notice, the only improvement TV manufacturers can make is cost. (Good!) But if they want to keep the high-end (with its higher profit margins) up they're desperately trying to come up with new features.

Re: Xbox 360 Elites with bigger hard drives. If they're keeping the price the same ($299) they're going to need to do something else then just add a bigger hard drive. At this point the PS3 just has more features. Since Sony still loses money on each system made and and Xbox passed that corner a while ago, the 360 either has to drop in price or bundle some accessories. I'd suggest the Wifi adapter and a 1-year Xbox Live gold subscription. Though I think a cheaper system would be the way to go. Imagine if they did away with the Arcade and sold the Elite for $199.

Maybe, but he's mentioned that he has bought a few of the DLC levels.

Thank you for another 'Cast! Shipwreck as third wheel is working out pretty well. Keep it up!

Fred Meyer is even doing the $50 GC with Xbox Elite. Something is definitely coming down the pipe. Probably just a 250 GB model. I don't see them dropping the price so soon after the last drop.

Hey guys, new to the forum/podcasts. This was the first cagcast I listened to and I think the show is awesome. Just subscribed so I'll be listening to the old cagcasts while looking forward to the next one.

Hey Wombat - Zelda is my #1 franchise! I'll buy any Zelda game that comes out. Even if it involves diddling Link with the Wii vitality sensor for 40-50 hours. I do agree with the Twilight Princess assessment. It was definitely a Zelda Greatest Hits meets Okami. But still a great game.

Thanks. Looking forward to listening.

Is there a specific version/remix of the intro? I'd like to track it down. If someone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.
