Of course I know that, it also has the strip. It also contains a bone providing a ton of flavor. Those two added elements make it a Man's steak.

Filet alone lacks the flavor of a porterhouse filet. You should know the difference.

Touche'. Well played sir.

I can't believe all of you hate the new 360 dash so much. I was in the beta and it has really grown on me, and my kids love the Kinect voice commands. I don't bother to dig through the dash much to get to games, I've had better luck with the Bing search than Shipwreck. Maybe he shouldn't be hacking to death when he tries to use voice search.

Great show as usual guys, and missed Wombat in the live show.

Why don't Cheapy, Shipwreck, and Wombat discuss the playstation system updates....seems like your all a bunch of fanboys.

Probably because nothing ever changes on the PS3 updates.

I think the new 360 UI is OK, but I look forward to hearing the guys complain about it. There are some solutions out there to all the ads.

To me the new dashboard reminds me of the Wii's home menu. It's a bunch of squares with easy to access channels via pointing aka hand motioning on the new 360 dash. Where microsoft fucked up is in not letting the user to choose what goes in which square like the wii. That way everyone has everything they want in two or three pages. For example my ideal page would have netflix, deals of the week, game in disc, and quickplay all on one page instead of maneuvering though all the world of warcraft ads and other uselessness stuff for me.

Cheapy, I haven't set a beacon, and I've noticed that the 360 notifies me when a friend plays the game I am, so it's not something that only occurs when you set a beacon. Also, I recall that last year you had live shows on Ustream to promote your Child's Play auction, maybe you guys can do a live show on BlogTalkRadio to raise awareness.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around WoW ads on my 360. Guess someone's hard up for money.

I'm in shock that you guys like Storage Wars better than American Pickers. The Pickers are so much nicer than those money-grubbing assholes on Storage Wars. Yes they look to profit from the items, but the people don't HAVE to sell their stuff, and I think the money they're offered is very fair, often times it's MORE than they initially ask for because the Pickers aren't looking to bend anyone over.

The Storage Wars douchebags (except for Barry, who's just a goofball), on the other hand, purposely bid worthless lockers up just out of spite, then they go on an ego trip naming outrageous prices for the crap they dig out of these things, none of which are guaranteed money.

Anyway, to each his own, I watch both shows, but I thank the powers that be for my DVR so I don't have to listen to those people for too long. I can probably watch an episode in about 13 minutes.

Thank you so much Cheapy for recommending the unblock-us service. I'm now watching US netflix and Hulu from Canada & my wife is looking at me like some kind of badass hacker for making it happen.

Also, Wombats joke about the Storage War people and their expert "friends" was hilarious.

Great episode guys!

Thanks for the tip on Clairvoyance. I have the spell but never used it. Sounds like it will help me with a few quests that are I think could be glitched to where I can't finish or find ones where the main marker isn't really helping me.

The new Dashboard was made to enhance Kinect navigation, at the behest of Controller navigation. It really shows, too, since everything is more clunky with a controller now.

Wombat I've got a question for Remedy. When are they going to stop blowing MS for money and make their games available for everyone, this was the company that made Max Payne. Granted you can refine the question but I'm sure you get the spirit of its intent.

hah at Cheapy trying to make jokes (Good Will Hunting). I'm not saying Cheapy isn't funny it's just that Wombat's so much better it makes Cheapy effectively not funny (by comparison) ^_^

You have to watch 'To Catch a Predator' with Chris Hansen. It's badass.

I dislike American Pickers, also, but drove over to LeClaire, where there shop is(about 30 min drive for me), just to meet the chick(she looked yummy) at an autograph session they had this summer.
And I too am reading The Hunger Games, and am really, really digging it!!! Thank You Cheapy!!!!

I recommend Mythbusters. It's fun experiments and you may learn something. Kari Byron is cute, and recently they had a cannon misfire and blew a hole in someone's house.

Shows like Hoarders, I didn't know I was pregnant, and My Strange Addiction are just disturbing and I stay away from them.

Cheapy, if you're going to rag on Shipwreck for coughing into the mic, could you turn your head when you burp please?


Funny story. My friend owns a video game repair store here in Vegas called Gamer's Paradise (used to be called Game Repair). He was on the fourth episode of Pawn Stars. They hired him to restore a Ms. Pac-Man cocktail. On the show, the elude that they were friends or even buisness associates, but he got a phone call from the producers and he said "yes" to the show and the project.

Also, there was an episode where this guy "didn't know" what year his Les Paul was. That happened to be the same guy who repaired my 1966 Gibson Melody Maker, who also happens to be Gibson Repair Certified. Having seen that and my friend on the show, I've concluded 90% of the show is probably staged BS.

Do you guys like anything? About 90% of the show consists of you bitching, it's ridiculous!... And Cheapy, you couldn't sound less enthused to be doing the show, seriously,...

That's exactly how I felt listening to the show this week. :applause: It's like the Louis C.K. bit Everything's Amazing and Nobody's Happy.

I always order the filet at my local steakhouse, Wombat. However, I don't play Skyrim on EASY, so that may make up for my dress-wearing/meat-eating tendencies.

Great show, lots of laughs. People hear what they want to hear I guess.

so the person, that sounds like a prepubescent boy, that likes to accessorize his virtual troll wizard with different color armor, like a girl, is going to tell me what type of meat a man eats?

Can we not rag on the Kindle fire so hard, guys? It's not the iPad, but did we ever expect it to be that good? It's like comparing cheap pre built computers from WalMart to a custom built gaming computer.

Great show guys! I am really a fan now and excited when new cagcasts are posted. Wombat is one cool cat.

Also anyone who has been to the actual pawn stars shop in Vegas knows what a fraud that show is. My wife and I visited it this year and we were totally let down. It was dreary and dumpy and on top of everything else 1/2 the shop is the garbage like bad pawn stars t-shirts and other ilk. You know those guys haven't met a product they couldn't put their names on when you see pawn stars water.

Wombat, try navigating the dash with kinect - either with voice or with the motion controls. I think this is the reason for the change in the interface. Someone on the show noted that it works well for a touchscreen and I think that is what they were going for with it. The actual size of the large box on the dash may be due to the ad stuff, but I think that kinect integration is the real reason for the overhaul.

At around 20:32 or so when they were talking about Good Will Hunting Cheapy almost said Good Will Cumming but he caught himself. Hilarious!

American Pickers > Storage Wars > Everthing Else > Auction Hunters (this show is terrible, the one guy with hair is a major douche).

I watched The Rock-afire Explosion documentary a week or so ago prior to hearing it on the CAGcast and I really liked it. If you had a Showbiz Pizza Place near you when you were a kid it'll transport you back. I highly recommend it.

Hey guys, With the end of the year coming up what do you expect for 2012 besides what we know,Do you expect new consoles or announcements from the other 2, what about games do you expect any announcements from big triple A franchises or do you think that they will wait until next gen?

Surprised to hear a Pearl Jam Twenty reference. I, unlike cheapy apparently, am a pretty big fan. Nice to see some love given even if it was promptly shot down.
