The trio talks PlayStation Move, God of War III, Just Cause 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and Blur. We also cover the latest industry and shopping news, answer your CAGbag and Twitter questions and oh so much more!

It was nice hearing my name on the podcast Cheapy, I love the show.

Oh and you are completely right about the half listening comment. I couldnt say how many times I have been listening to the podcast while doing something else and realize that I cant remember the last 20 minutes. I probably do a bit less angry misinformed email writing though.

What else? Wombat isnt so horrible and Boatcrash adds a lot. I'm liking the show a lot more lately and I really have nothing to tag it to, just keep it up!

Great show guys...got a couple questions for you that i would love to hear you opinions on...
1) what do you think of the possibility of 100 mbps speeds that might be coming to the US (eventually...http://www.crunchgea...net-connection/) & how do you think that would affect gaming in the US for consoles?
2) Cheapy, what is the Japanese buzz on 3d tv's and how will it affect gaming over in Japan...?

I listen to this podcast every Thursday at work. It's the best podcast I subscribe to within Zune Marketplace. Keep up the great work.

Another good show guys. I agree completely that the Just Cause 2 demo is incredibly fun. From your discussion, I get the idea that none of you played the original Just Cause. Many of the fun concepts of the current game were based in the original. Unfortunately, it straddled the console generations with PS2 and 360 releases and suffered from technical and budget issues as a result. (much like Gun) In spite of its issues, Just Cause 1 was a fun rental in the early days of the 360.

Regarding the guy whose wife wants to keep the Wii locked away from the 4 year olds, that is crazy. I've had a lot of great father/daughter time with my 4 year old playing New Super Mario Bros. Wii. The fact that she can press "A" to become encased in a floating invulnerability bubble any time it becomes too difficult for her makes it possible for us to finish even the difficult levels together.

I think Wombat would make a good villian, but who can beat the ECA. He would have a white cat and bruises everywhere he held shot guns wrong.

I just wanted to followup after finishing the podcast that I actually had the reverse opinion shift with Wombat. At first I found him annoying at the very least, but after a couple of episodes I've found he's made me laugh quite frequently, and he really is a funny dude. I think his absence from the podcast would severely hurt the "funny factor" of the show, and all in all I think the three of you guys compliment each other well.

Lately I've been playing the Just Cause 2 demo non-stop, instead of Mass Effect 2. Easily a day one purchase for me.

The trick to launching yourself with the gas cans is to grapple on to the nozzle rather than the cylinder, and no, you don't have to shoot it first. Still, it's more fun to attach an enemy to one and watch him go flying.

I started the argument on Facebook about Wombat bashing Chime. Here's my original post:

I love you Wombot, but my respect for you went down a notch or two when you bashed a great game that is giving its profits to charity with no explanation on the CAGcast. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean you should tell thousands of gamers that it sucks. That may have been the first that they had heard of it and now won't give it a chance.

As you can see, I complained that he didn't explain his dislike of the game; not just that he didn't like it. I appreciate the explanation in this CAGcast. At least people can make an informed decision now.

The Just Cause 2 demo has been great. The dev team fixed everything from the first game.

Just some random thoughts and comments I put down as I was listening to the CAGcast

Cheapy is right, he doesn't need people to portray him as an asshole, he does a good enough doing that himself when he wins douche bag of the year.

I agree that God of War 3 taking 3 years in development is a bit much, but I think that God of War 2 should have been released on the PS2 when it came out just due to the number of consoles that Sony had in the market compared to the number of PS3 consoles that gamers had.

I'm with Shipwreck about FF13, it is a game that doesn't interest me. I never even beat 12, just a meh sort of feeling from it all. (The Gamestop impersonations were awesome too.)

The talk you guys have had about Just Cause 2 has been pretty awesome, I was excited for it when I saw some vids over the summer and the talk makes it sound even better.

Good commentary on Bioshock 2, also, I'm just a little bit past Wombat and I agree with it so far. Seems like a repackaged BS1 which may not be a bad thing, the first game was good.

I am skeptical about Onlive, I think their pricing is wrong. If you have to pay $15 a month you should get some free rentals every month, also I think most people who have a connection fast enough run Onlive probably could get a high end computer if they wanted one. Also the $180 a year you spend to play onlive is enough to keep your PC up to date to play any games you might want to play.

Cheapy, you can hope the Bowel movement is the best thing ever but that is like saying the Wiimote is the best thing ever. And you guys have talked enough about shitbox for what you think will happen with that.

And the BM actually looks like a sex toy my old girl friend had...kinda creepy.

What you three need to do when you are at E3 and at a press conference start booing anytime they talk about any of the motion controller. And video tape that and when you guys get kicked out of the press conference.

Congratulations to Microsoft in getting with the times and allowing people to express their sexual orientation.

Wombat was a bit off with the Baltimore mayor at first but he corrected himself as I started typing this sentence. I think it's worse that the mayor wasn't bribed but basically stole from a charity.

When Cheapy did his zombie voice I imagined that's how he moans during sex.

In closing, I'm not sure if it's a Jew thing or a New Yorker thing, but what's the big deal with shooting a shotgun?

Was a good show, not as good as last week but I think it was hard to follow the Mass Effect 2 discussion of last week.

OnLive is an interesting technology if it works. But that pricing is crazy. From last year we knew it was going to be subscription plus game cost. But $15 a month? Who would pay for that?

OnLive appeals to those that don't have a 360, PS3, or kick-ass PC system. If they don't have enough money for that, how likely is it they would have money for the monthly fee?

There's someone else out there with a Zune? I'm not alone after all.

I hope motion controllers fail as well. Also it was hilarious hearing about what Mass Effect character you all are, and then going into shipwreck's ghost from spreadsheet past.

Also, that Amazon gift card would be pretty sweet.

It’s disappointing (but not surprising) that the three hosts cannot muster a modicum of imagination or see potential of the new interface systems. These are steps, albeit sometimes awkward, towards a different type of control. There is some legit criticism of the naming and trying to shoe-horn controls into EVERY game. But there are some games which could use the technology well.

What is almost as bad as all these motion controls is the videogamer's negativity around them. I personally enjoy seeing my kids jumping around playing games on the Wii.

I haven't even listened to the entire show, but couldn't pass up the chance at a $60 gift card.

A while ago Wombat mentioned the Blueberry Muffin Tops video contest which I entered and made the top-10! My video is the "Scientifically Crazed" video, third from the bottom where the blue guy is doing all sorts of crazy stuff.

You can vote for us here! Thanks!

I'm glad you got usage out of the Blur code.

What's the deal with nobody pronouncing zwei on the cag cast?

Hey guys. Another great show. Loved the "which Mass Effect characters are you?" discussion the best.

So Wombat wants some constructive criticism...

I guess I would have to say: Man up!! Shooting with at 12 gauge and you got a bruised arm?? :wall:

I've only shot a few times, and I guess holding the shotgun the wrong way would end up hurting pretty bad! Also, 75 shots is a lot, it probably stopped being as much fun towards the end...

Hopefully next time you'll do better (12/75 #-o) :twoguns:

I really hope the Move ends up being fun... having good responsive motion controls with PS3 graphics would be awesome, but we'll have to wait.

By the way, it does not use batteries, or at least that's what they said in one of the latest reports... Batteries would be a major disappointment.

Kind of funny Amazon won all those Cheapy Awards and then pulled some shady stuff with the omnibus debacle.

When you guys mentioned FFXIII, i can't help but agree that when I play those type of RPG games, it is really nerdy but playing games like GOWIII or battlefield is not nerdy at all. Keep up the good work!

Great show guys. I don't mind that FF13 is very linear. One of the things i hate the most is having a giant sprawling world with no direction. Sometimes it's fine, but i'm a completionist so I like to do everything in a game.

Been listening to the podcast since episode #6. Great show it was good when it was Wombat and Cheapy, but adding Shipwreck has added another dimension. Keep it up and the live shows are entertaining, but interviews are really the best part. The Mass Effect interview was the best finished it for the 3rd time this week. Thank you for the show.
