Congrats, Wombat!

Downloading the CAGcast on iTunes now while I edit my own fake radio show. Fun night!

That's probably the most boring and unoriginal title used since I've started listening to the show. But I still look forward to listening as always. Thanks!


Shut the  Fuck up you fucking fucker. You don't know dick about shit, you retard.

Congrats Wombat :applause:.

Will you be recording an episode of CAGcast during E3 week and is there any possibility of you guys streaming from your ihpones on something like justinTV while visiting the different booths?

Congratz Wombat.

I find myself agreeing with CheapyD on how Kotaku should have handled the WB. Surprisingly good show without Wombat. I'll look forward to the audioboos and post E3 show.

Microsoft will promote kinect. no price drop.
Sony won't mention the hacking problems and hide behind new lame exclusives (MGS5, Ratchet and Clank BS)
Nintendo... who gives a f* about nintendo??? I wouldnt get my hopes up over their new console. It's Wii v2. The Wii was succesful, I wouldnt expect anything but more of the same buisness model/crap out of them. probably just HD, maybe a new color and some motion control similar to kinect/move. Throw in a new Zelda to get people excited for launch. ZZZZzzz

Nice show, guys. Looking forward to meeting y'all at E3.

Kingdoms of Amalar: Reckoning was shown at PAX East and it looked pretty damned good in its early state. (It's actually available to watch online here.) 3rd person, very action oriented, flowing beautifully in its pre-Alpha state. They didn't touch much on the RPG elements or story elements much, though they did mention...


38 Studios and Big Huge Games has quite a dream-team for Kingdoms. You've got Todd Rolston, lead designer on Morrowind and Oblivion. You've got Todd McFarlane, artist, writer, and creator of Spawn on the art end. And then you've got author R.A. Salvatore, who penned all those very popular Drizzt Do'Urden Forgotten Realms novels, as lead writer. All organized by the bloody-sock Red Sox pitching master himself, Curt Schilling. (Granted, not who you'd expect heading a game company, but Schill loves games and wasted no time getting involved once he retired.)

Very exited to see whats announced at the Microsoft press conference. Is it too early for them to talk about Skype integration w/ xbl video chat / improved live chat quality? Hope they talk about undead labs upcoming xbox exclusive MMO. Also am I the only person that wants a new xbox console? I'm itchin to buy new hardware and if they don't at least tease something I might just have to buy nintendo's new weird console.

WHAT? Cheapy never played Zelda OoT and Shippy never played The Darkness? This must be fixed!

Btw, great show this week but I missed Wombat.

Yeah, sounds like Wombat is not on the show this week, hence the boring name...

Hey Cheapy, if you like the shooting sequences in LA Noire you should play some of the side missions.

As far as discussion, one of the best shows in a long, long time.

Wait, wait. The site that wrangled the exclusive and journalisticly questionable Modern Warfare 3 stuff--and who knows how that was shopped around--is bitching about other sites getting legitimate exclusives? Right. Glad I stopped reading Kotaku a long time ago.

Vita is Latin for Life, pronounced 'We-ta'. Probably some sort of play on Sony Life or something like that.

Edit, It can also mean to shun or to avoid which is kinda funny.
Gordon's alive?!?!?

I feel sorry for those who pre-ordered L.A. Noire to get an exclusive case and now have to pay the same 800 points to get the other dlc as well. Sure, if they dont want the suits, they can just buy the individual cases and save a whole dollar, but that's not exactly rewarding those who committed to the purchase ahead of time. The Rockstar Pass should have been given to all pre-orderers (or even all those who just bought the game new).

When you're at the Microsoft press event, hound them about the true Kingdom Under Fire sequel they promised us a long time ago.

I just want to say I took a huge Cheapy D esqe dump. This tird was like a foot long and perhaps not the size of a normal soup can, but you know those small cans of campbells? Yeah. The girth was equal to that. I'm a new man.

THAT's what I was trying to think of! Also, what about YouTube with the ability to record and post videos with Kinect?

Eh miss the Wombat. He helps make the show. Provides some color to the brown of Cheapie and the white of Shipwreck. (I've listened to the show enough. I know Wombat likes compliments. )

Cheapie will hate Wii2. I'm going to make that prediction in honor of the show's analyst prediction segment.

Let's face it. Wii2 will be new ways to play Nintendo games. Nintendo will hope 3rd parties get on board, and will have the usual suspects on board for launch and the first year or two. Madden, Ridge Racer, a fighting game, Super Monkey Ball, Sonic, and other crap. They'll partner with a 3rd to make a rushed launch game or rushed port of a Xbox/Ps3 game. LIke you guys said - Call of Duty : Black Ops probably. Gotta be at least one version behind the other consoles. ;)

But the real 3rd parties (ones who make the bigger badder more desirable 3rd party games) want to release games on all platforms and they won't take advantage of the rumored touchscreen controllers and other unique Wii2 features except as an afterthought. Therefore what's the point?

Cheapie (and everyone else) will get all 3rd party games on the Xbox still. That's where their friends are. That's the platform that gets the most love still for multi-platform games. Wii2 will have the shittiest version of multi-platform games. And even if Nintendo has a exact copy of Xbox Live folks won't buy it. They don't need 2 Xbox Lives even though they say they always wanted Nintendo online to be like Xbox Live.

Nintendo 1st party doesn't make shooters and open world M games. Never have. So no hope there either.

It comes down to if you are a Nintendo fan or not. Do you like their 1st party games? IF so Wii2 is interesting. For others I don't see anything changing. Although I guess Wii2 is interesting too for those non-fans because they get a very early preview of what is coming on the next 360 and PS3. MS and Sony will surely copy anything that proves to be a hot idea.

And let's not forget that, while the Wii2 may get 3rd party multiplatform ports, it will only last ~2 years before the next Xbox and PS3 come out and they'll be back to the even worse scenario today where the Wii gets a different game than the other platforms.

Nintendo will probably do enough to get its fans and those looking for new gameplay experiences to buy their stuff for another few years. I truly expect some cool fun sht to come out. And I like playing a good chunk of Nintendo's 1st party stuff. But don't expect the Wii2 to be an all around multi-platform direct competitor platform. You'll be disappointed.

Can't wait for BF3!!!!!
