Hey Ship, do the parents of the kids on our b-ball team know how much you enjoy playing Dead or Alive Volleyball Extreme?

So Wombat, was Kinect River Rafting actually fun, or were you just having fun playing with your daughter and you just happened to be using Kinect at the time?

Haven't listened yet, but I assume it's Shipwreck (as far as not liking L.A. Noire). Has he ever enjoyed a game at all associated with Rockstar?

I was a big fan of Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis, Max Payne 1 & 2, and Red Dead Revolver and I like GTA IV and GTA: Chinatown Wars.

Guys, great show as always. Loved Wombats Macho Man impression.

Talking about New York tourist scams, the glasses guy Womabt ran into, has been running for years from what I have heard. Another scam that happens is the cd scammers. They work in groups and after quick talking, you get scammed out of some money. I know this to be true as it happened to a friend of mine about a year and a half ago.

I stand corrected. I just remember you not liking Red Dead Redemption, so I guess that clouded my memory. Maybe it was Cheapy who it didn't like GTA IV.

Anyways, glad you're enjoying the game Cheapy, though I disagree about the driving. I'm finding the chases to be a total blast.

I'm just happy for Team Bondi that it sold so well. Can't wait to see what they do next, especially if they stick with Rockstar.

You give me too much credit, I'm not that nice.


I normally just lurk, but I registered to post this. Screw that guy Ship, don't listen to him. Honestly, before you became a permanent fixture on the show I was on the brink of unsubscribing as I felt the show had become a bit tired and aimless . You're usually the only one bringing the proper game talk. Keep it up!:)

I for one love both the driving and the shooty shoot. I don't know what you guys are talking about.

Derpbat just plays the greatest cinematic action game of all time, but is too good to finish it...

Cheapy with an epic Wombat interruption around 85 min. Way to not even notice!

Wombat is such a terrible person. Calling his wife "fatty" and making a Macho Man joke WAY too soon.

I laughed though.

I don't like getting nickeled and dimed, having my MP held hostage, less features hardware wise, unreliable hardware, or paying for something that is free everywhere else. No, Xbox is not better than PS, but the implementation of Live is better than PSN.

Sad things is that people complain about online passes yet have no problem on MS holding the MP portion of EVERY game they buy hostage unless they pay for Live. I would much rather game on a system such as Live, but I rather reward the company that gives me more bang for my buck. Sure PSN is not as nice, but telling a company that they can crap in a box and you'll still buy it is much worse for the consumer in the long run.

Many complain about Activision, yet fail to see that Activision and others finally noticed that consumers are buying faulty hardware and paying for the privilege to play the MP parts of games they own. If people would have acted logically and not reward this behavior, chances are Live would have been made free or actually give you something for your money, and those $15 map packs would have been few an far between.

Can't wait for the next Uncharted and Halo on my next-gen systems!

Wombat:

On the one hand, I want to credit you for being able to reevaluate your opinion of a product.

On the other hand, I want to completely ridicule you for having previously sworn that you would never even speak of Microsoft's then-named "project natal" and/or Sony's motion control peripheral again on the show. I fondly remember you ranting about how stupid the "shitbox" was yet here you are taking every opportunity to play it with your daughter.

You managed to be both bull-headed and open minded about Kinect. So the listeners have gone from being told they would never hear Kinect referred to again to listening to episodes entitled "Better with Kinect."

CheapyD mentioned a gaming website in this episode, the one that had a section devoted to new releases. Can someone tell me what the name of it was? I can't seem to find the exact place in the podcast where it was mentioned.

Great show, entertaining as always. After listening to your discussion of LA Noire I have a theory about Shipwrecks taste in games. Cheapy and Wombat are constantly using movies as reference points to their game experiences, not to mention just random movie quotes throughout the podcast. Comparisons have been made of LA Noire to LA Confidential or Chinatown and other classic film noire.. Shipwreck admitted he wasn't a real fan of the "Settings" of LA Noire or Red Dead Redemption and preferred fantasy or sci fi environments. Clearly both Cheapy and Wombat are huge movie fans, while Shipwreck seems to be less so, preferring to spend his free time playing games. My theory is Shipwreck is comfortable playing games that remind him of other games while Cheapy and Wombat tend to favor games that offer experiences that are more cinematic. Not to mention when you guys were doing the Trading Places riff Shipwreck was dead silent. It was obvious he had no idea what you were talking about.

That's really only the tip of the iceberg of his inconsistencies. Albeit this is particularly glaring but its certainly not the only instance.

I think you may have some validity to your theory, but I have seen L.A. Confidential, Chinatown, and Trading Places. I liked all three, I just didn't commit them to memory. I like cinematic games that do it well like Uncharted and Alan Wake, but have trouble getting into cinematic games where the game mechanics are uninteresting. Your theory is pretty sound though.
