Just so you know Cheapy, your food poisoning could have been caused by food you had eaten up to 3 days prior.

Being hyped for a game doesn't always end up with you being disappointed. The last time I was super-hyped for a game was for Batman: Arkham Asylum and it easily met all my expectations.

And one thing that can ruin Mass Effect 2...a horrible story. The combat just isn't good enough to make the game, but the story can easily make or break the game.

Love the player with the time. Now, if I stop mid-show, I can actually come back without having to leave my browser open.

I am in living in China and had the same problem when watching Avatar. I couldnt understand anything the blue monkeys were saying because the subtitles were in chinese. I must say the blue tits were pretty disappointing.

I have a question though. Here in China if you want American/ foreign food we go to a store called Jenny Lou's that stocks imported products from the west. If you want to get foreign food what do you do?

Good show guys, Cheapy i'd recommend buying a big fullHD TV now that they are so damn cheap and have it for a couple of years until LED-technology is cheap(er) and up to snuff, upgrade to a LED-TV maybe 2015.

Well, I think that cements the "Pants on the ground" meme.

Uh oh, Wombat is gonna be on Maury one day...

The reason you need a new TV for the bedroom: Hi-Def Porn.

Last Gen ESPN NFL 2k5 was $25 brand new. Worth every penny. I don't buy new games much anymore, as I often don't have $60 worth of interest in almost ANYTHING that comes out. Get it down to $40, and I start paying attention.

The organic web shooters takes away from Peter Parker as a person. If you remember the old Ditko stories, Spiderman was always figuring out how to defeat an enemy; grounding himself against electro, figuring out another web-formulation for Vibro, the vacuum for Sandman, etc. If Spiderman gets the web shooters organically, then what is Peter inventing? Stupidest moment in the films happened early on when he tried to stop the elevated train by webbing himself to the front. There is no Peter Parker in the movies, it's all a fan jerk-off of "Spiderman iz teh koolz!!!!!1!!1!". Next film, more Peter, less Spiderman.

Loved the intro this morning.

Cheapy and Wombat, I've been playing AOT TFD for a couple days now and the first one was much better IMO. The load times on this game suck even when installed (360) , My friend and I go into party mode to talk while playing, and one of us will be either randomly dropped from the game OR the game crashes my system all together (I have LE RED RE5 360).

If you played AOT #1 certain weapons are supposed to unlock. I got the message at the beginning of the game but the weapons that were supposed to unlock did not . SHITTY GLITCH!

If you load up a game , go in to your weapons and buy/modify new guns and die before you get to a check point, you have to do all your modifications all over again. VERY ANNOYING.

Unskippable cut scenes. WTF AINT THIS 2010?

game could have been so much better.

Since you're okay with 'buy it new or pay for it' DLC Cheapy, what is your stance on 'pre-order it or you're never getting it, even for pay' DLC?

I'm with ya on Starflight, Cheapy, I played the crap out of the Genesis version and that's all I could think of when exploring planets in Mass Effect.

ELITE was another classic of that type...

Looking forward to Mass Effect 2 :)

Thanks for another fun show, helped make my heavy-traffic commute more bearable.

Hahaha, I love the whole thing with Wombat and Army of Two and the "accidental" disconnecting of his internet after that horrible incident! Hahaha. And then he doesn't come back for a few days, haha, Wombat really did not want that man to die.

I've been on a diet, but I haven't been seeing fast enough results. I think that I'm going to adopt Cheapy D's methods. Hotdogs for breakfast? Popcorn and fried pork cutlet sandwiches for brunch?!? Sushi and Cold Stone Creamery to finish off the day?!


I'm gonna be soo sessy for bikini season.

HELL YES! Cheapy/Wombat, Mass Effect 2 is gonna rule. I can't wait either. I have the CE preordered. Once again, if you guys wanna play some coop games (like MW2) feel free to send me an invite. :)

btw, hope Shippy feels better soon.

I wasn't even going to comment on you not knowing anything about Glory of Heracles until you mentioned it so here it goes...
"I can't believe you call yourself gamers and don't know all about the upcoming RPGs for the DS. It's not like there are that many, so you should know about all of them. Way to let your fans down... again."

OK, now that's over with, I manage an RPG site and few of my staffer know anything about the game. It's OK guys, I forgive you. Seriously, there are enough DS RPGs out there to build a house or two with.

No Shipwreck :cry: but still a good show

Haven't you figured it out yet fanboys? Your mommy can't afford both consoles! Be grateful with what you got and shut the Fuck up.

haven't listened to the show yet but will do tomorrow.

cheapy i registered just to say this; i've really lost interest in the show since you brought shipwreck onboard. i mean i like shipwreck but his presence really changes the dynamic that you and wombat have which was what first attracted me to the show. i used to listen to the show as soon as it was released but i haven't even listened to last weeks show yet. looking forward to this episode though :)

anyway, i'm 34, married with 2 young kids and i really relate to you and wombats stories as new parents. cheapy i remember you saying you still felt like a 16 year old idiot. dude it's the same for me - i always feel like i'm in over my head :) anyway good luck to both you guys :)

get well soon shipwreck - i don't mean to bash you, it's just i was drawn to the cagcast because of the dynamic between cheapy and wombat and with you onboard it's a totally different show for me.

keep up the good work guys! looking forward to listening to the show :)

Will the fact that Robocop himself (the actor at least) hosts the documentary on God of War will that persuade you into getting the collector's edition of GoW III?

I have a question that wombat can ask the producers of Mass effect. When is the PS3 version going to come out since they are 3rd party and MS is no longer the publisher. I ask because of the Xbox being hardware junk I no longer buy anything for the 360, that's not to say I won't rent it, but for EA and Bioware to get my money it has to come to the PS3.

Hey Cheapy,

This is just a guess, but if your IM and Skype are running fine, but you're having problems with the web, it might be that your ISPs DNS server is bogged down with traffic. Try changing your DNS server in your router to one of the OpenDNS servers. http://www.opendns.com/ This might help speed up your browsing.

This is obviously just a guess, though. I can't tell anything definitive with just a few blurps from a Podcast. :P

Hey Cheapy, I've got back Womby up when it comes to making those moral choices in games (referring to your Army of Two debacle). I probably would've freaked out on you as well when you got that innocent security dude killed (even though it sounded hilarious).

Even though I am fully aware it's just a game and that those decisions matter for little else then achievements my moral compass always leads me to take the high road. It sounded liked Wombat was a little embarrassed by the way he reacted and tired to brush it off when you confronted him, but STAND PROUD WOMBAT! There are dozens of us, DOZENS OF US!!!!

Even when it comes down to achivement hunting I have a difficult time being a dick in games. I had to really focus when I was trying to get the asshole achievement in the original Mass Effect, and immediately after I got it I shut my game off without saving.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that this doesn't make sense to you though Cheapy, after all, how many 'asshole of the year' awards do you currently have on your shelf?

great show as usual.
