Great show, which other gaming podcast's first topic of discussion is 'Dipping'?

For me the Cagcast wouldn't be the same without BoatCrash now.

Good stuff. I like to hear about the adventures in Japan and all the crazy contraptions that I wish we had in North America.
Also, I think that you guys should just stray far away from JRPGs. I am a big fan of them, and I realize they are not for everyone, but whenever you guys get on that topic it is just a big rant. Probably best just to steer clear.
Other than that keep up the good work, maybe now that I am finished listening I can actually write the paper that i have been sitting and staring at for the last 2 hours.

OK, you guys have me laughing out loud in the computer lab with your conversations about the Sony Move Thing. Great preview.

Another great show, gentlemen. I agree with many of the posters that Boatcrash is a great addition as you guys seem to talk about games more lately. I am sure that it is long gone but I really miss the CAGs on News theme. Wombat, you have a beautiful voice.

Perhaps some wireless speakers would do the trick. Either that or you can put a metal cage all around your entertainment area to act as a faraday CAGE! or the "Cheap Ass Gamer Entertain-o".

I don't understand all of the Wombat hate. all it sounds like to me is you disagree with his opinions then you think he is evil. A difference in opinion is allowed.

Like seemingly everyone, I think OnLive is an interesting idea, but stands no chance. The idea could take off eventually, but would require full support. It's the ultimate end to piracy. It's not easy to pirate a game when you can only access it by streaming over the net.

Also, if this is Wombat's last show, I'm done listening.

I had to laugh at the "half-listening" bit, because I listen to the podcast at work (after downloading at home and loading it on my MP3 player -- wouldn't dare do TOO much "non-work-related" internet access with the monitoring capabilities these days) and frequently find myself missing big parts of the conversation as a result...

Another solid show.

I listen to the CAGCast while I'm at the gym and really enjoy the banter between all three of you. It helps take my mind off of working out and actually makes it seem fun.

I like the idea of having a specific "Game X" segment when all three of you have played a game and can really comment on it. I think the combination of only having the segment sporadically and when all three have played the game will keep it fresh and not wear it out.

Also, Wombat should have a "Seal of Submission" to the pressure of CAG members not a seal of "Approval". Maybe someday it will live up to "The CheapyD Promise" :)

Great show guys. You know it's not a CAGcast without Cheapy talking about junk. At least we won't see some embarrassing photos at Google maps since they take their pictures during daytime.

Shipwreck, I'm curious what are your so called "16 big name titles" for May? To me, I only see 10.

Week 1

Week 2

Week 3

Week 4

Last few days of May

Great show, guys! Would just like to say that I kinda like the Playstation Move name for Sony's motion controller. It sounds like they're pleading with their products to sell.

"Playstation, move! PSP, go! Please?"

On a more serious note, though, I can understand Cheapy's skepticism about the Project Shitbox and the Move, but I still think that motion control might have the potential to really change how some games are played. I'm especially optimistic about the Shitbox - some of the news I've heard out of other podcasts is that some developers aren't looking to replace controllers so much as augment gameplay or UI. I think there can definitely be some interesting application there. But then again, Cheapy might be right and it might just be a giant turd in a box. Only time will see.

Oh, and PS: to hell with all the Wombat haters! Wombizzle for life!

Great show, you guys. Thought the "Spoiled Rotten" section at the end was good, you need to do that more often.

I still don't understand why readers bug you guys to play games they know you won't like. Specifically, saying that you need to play Final Fantasy XIII and other JRPGs. Any regalur listeners would know that Cheapy has expressed many times dislike of most Japanese game plots. He would most likely diss on any JRPGs recommended to him rather than praise them. I agree with their sentiment that people wanting Final Fantasy and other JRPG news should find a different podcast that talks about them.

My first time listening to the show in a long time. I don't necessarily agree with you guys on your opinions on games, but you're always entertaining in some way. Much like seeing a bad movie, at the very least you'll have something to make fun of with your friends!

I am in agreement with you guys regarding the motion control "hype". One thing I have not seen mentioned is that due to the fact that Project Nata-uh, shitbox relies on camera technology to sense motion, will it have the sublety that using a accelerometer-based motion control have? If you are seated far away from the camera and make small movements, it is likely that they will not get picked up reliably. With this in mind- will game developers rely on overly simple or exaggerated movements in their games, and therefore make the whole experience a lot of flailing around? I think the Wii motion control plus is moving in the right direction where the full dexterity of your hand can be taken advantage of for fine and responsive control.

OMG! So I'm listening to the CAGcast while eating grapes, and when Wombat says the PS Move can go Fuck itself, i laughed so hard that i spit my delicious grapes out! Good job, chaps! Jolly good!

Enjoyed the show fellows...and I hope we can get in some GOW3 talk in the coming shows, and a round table soon.

I wish Sony and Microsoft would have stayed away from being like the Wii with the motion control crap.

I haven't listened to the whole show, but good show so far. Here is my bit of constructive criticism...Can you please bookend your game reviews, discussions, etc. with the name of the game you were talking about. I am one of those people that is doing other things while listening and you will say something about a game that piques my interest. I will then have to try to find the beginning of the segment to determine what game you were talking about. It would be great if you also mentioned the name of the game after you are done talking about it.

Cheapy's total confusion and just trying to understand the playstation move was really funny. The whole ripping on the move was great in general. Looking forward to the soon to come shitbox bashing.

Keep up the good work!



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.

Great show guys! Nothing really to criticize here. Love the show and everything about it every week. Seriously, the CAGcast is my favorite audio podcast on the interwebs, period. Every other podcast takes itself too serious. I love how you guys just go about the show very casually and have fun with it. Makes the show fun to listen to. So, don't change anything, don't listen to the haters, and keep on with your bad selves.

With love from Chi-city,

And don't quit Wombat!! :)

Great show. All three of you were in fine form, although I may be biased because I engaged in a little dipping the morning before listening to the show. Incidentally, my wife wants Cheapy's bathtub.

A couple of points:

Shipwreck is worried about Sega releasing too many games so early in the year, but I think that's actually a wise move on their part. Yes, pumping out an endless string of games doesn't exactly bode well for the quality of each of those titles, but Atlus has been doing just that for years and I know Ship's a big fan of their titles. Additionally, if you're going to flood the market, the first quarter is the time to do it, allowing you to avoid the glut of A-list titles that hit in the summer and between Thanksgiving and Christmas. So maybe Sega's crazy like a two-tailed fox.

Cheapy, meanwhile, was lamenting that no one is calling bullshit on the PS3 Move, but Chris Kohler of WIRED filed a very skeptical assessment from GDC, and I'm sure there were others.

Keep up the good work!
