Glad to see you're okay enough out there to make a CAGcast Cheapy! As soon as I saw the news my thoughts went to you and your family and I'm very happy to see that you're okay, I know we've never talked or anything but listening to you for years has made me care about your well-being.

Thanks for recording a Cagcast! I wasn't expecting one this week for obvious reasons.

Oye Cheapy, muchacho, como que una hora y despues en Raptr te dice cuatro? Ese terremoto te dejo loquito, broki, no vaciles.

Now, seriously, Cheapy sounds a bit "off", but it's understandable. As usual, great job, guys. Hope everything gets better for everyone in Japan. I'll donate some money through CAG as soon as I get paid (next week, since I'm broke after paying the bills this week).

Damn Cheapy, even in the face of disasters you bring us a new podcast? I hope you realize that you've now set a precedent, If you can make a podcast after earthquakes and tsunamis, you can NEVER miss another week. ;)
Thanks, here's hoping you and your family stay safe in the face of all this.

Not even an 8.9 quake can stop Cheapy D. :)

Actually they upped the estimate to a 9.0. And since the richter scale grows exponentially a 9.0 is about 450 bazillion times stronger than an 8.9. Of course that is an estimate on my part, and yes, bazillion is a real number.

Here's how you know Cheapy is going to hell --- "Don't pray for us, send money to Japan (18:08 mark)".

Best to you, your family, and your countrymates, Cheapy. Thank you for keeping us connected to a world we see only in pictures and with people who need good karma and all the support we can muster.

Protip: If you wanna mess with Shippy, give him some Dr. Pepper.

For the DA2 Metacritic controversy, I've been loving the game and all those user reviews on Metacritic were backlash for the changes they made to the game since I doubt anyone could complete the game the day it came out. DA2 was being lambasted before it was even out in many forums. A lot of people only judged the game from the demo which was a poor representation of the full game anyway. So yea, no one gives a shit about user reviews about Metacritic. F them.

Btw, I'm shocked there was no discussion about DA2 at all except for the controversy. Maybe next week?

As usual, great show. I've gotta add that I was pretty excited about getting my Cyndi Lauper tweet mentioned on the show. Good to know that you're still in a mood to laugh at terrible jokes, Cheapy.

Shipwreck- I had the exact same "Tetris" problem with Slam Bolt Scrappers! I think this game could be really great with four people in the same room. "However, it's similar to Smash Bros. in that the craziness of it all is lost over the internet.

Good to hear everything is okay in Japan Cheapy.

The part you guys aren't accounting for regarding 5% of games in 2010 being rated "M" is that another 5% were rated "T" and the other 90% were rated "E" shovelware motion games.

Cheapy, you totally could have played it off as the 'swaying buildings' are popular. Anyway great show, I'm glad to hear the cheapies are safe and unscathed. I'll be looking forward to future reports from my man in Japan about the recovery of the country.

This had me laughing. I hate when people just send their "wishes" or wear bracelets or send texts or whatever. They do NOTHING. You want to make an effort, send money. Sounds wrong, but when it comes to something like this, or curing disease, etc...money is what helps.

Glad to know you and your family are safe Cheapy

Great podcast, Cheapy. It's interesting to here the reality in Tokyo vs the US media. They were reporting all the stores there are barren of food and water.

I have to say though, I thought your prayer comment was quite disrespectful to people of faith. I understand if you meant that prayers alone are not enough. Money is needed too, but it came off as you saying prayers are worthless and do nothing to help. Maybe most of your listeners are atheists, but some of us do believe in prayer. At least it shows that we do care about the Japanese ppl.

Wombat, the UCLA girl wasn't removed from school for her video. The video responses to it were hilarious, though. Here's the original video if you still haven't seen it Cheapy:

And this is the best parody I've found:

Anyway, it was a great show. I'm glad to hear you and your family are safe Cheapy. I live in California, so whenever a big quake happens, you'll always hear discussion from news stations about when it will be our turn. :-(

I hope the nuclear situation doesn't get any worse for Japan.

Wow, that was pretty classless of Lisa G squeezing in an iPhone app plug during an interview about the earthquake. And why the hell did she want to hear the television?

Here's how you know Cheapy is going to hell --- "Don't pray for us, send money to Japan (18:08 mark)".

I know, right? I wish doctors would stop relying on surgery and medicine and would just start praying more.

Not to be crass or tasteless but I was surprised when everyone said what they had for problems Ships says tornados, Cheapy says earthquakes and Wombat says nothing or snow. Did you forget about the terrorists? It just seemed like the thing Wombat would say and he didn't.

Cheapy I'm very happy you guys are safe!
