I'm really digging all the PC talk on the cagcast. I also purchased a gaming PC this year and have been blown away by all the crazy deals that amazon's been having. I was able to build a decent game library within a month and not even spending over 50 bucks to do so. but I did spend quite a bit on the PC. so i guess it evens out? but yes, it's been tough going back to play on my consoles. playing games on the PC makes you realize how dated the consoles are at this point.

I really like Andrew Garfield as an actor

I was pretty worried about him in the role. My only previous exposure was a Dr Who episode where he was beyond horrible. Did well in Spidey though.

"Japanese Internet is too fast for America to handle" is nonsense. Never had Cheapy's problem on my 100mb connection in California. I routinely download games that are 6GB or larger and even bluray rips that are 8-20GB in only a few minutes. Only thing I can think of is that Cheap's ISP initiated IP Flood Protection. They probably thought Amazon saturating the connection was a Denial of Service attack.

Personally for me, Episode 289 is a fond one an instant classic, and one of the best episodes in a long time. Excuse me while I nerd out.

There were multiple things I had knowledge of in this cast and it’s great because I responded to everything you guys talked about; nothing more so however than the spectacular/ultimate spider-man discussion. Ultimate is geared towards children ‘lighter’ as Wombat said, while this is all fine and dandy, we should find a balance between being ‘lighter’ and being a kiddy show. Spectacular was way more reminiscent of the 1992 animated series (which both kept violence at a minimum while being of a very high quality of work.) As such when this stronger (or ‘darker’ by Wombat’s standards) there is a wider interest than something that is quite literally directed towards children. The reason we cry foul when talking about Ultimate is that Marvel takes way to many liberties with its animated shows, and not just with Spider-man (ie. Avengers: EMH getting canned for one more in line with the films, and Wolverine and the X-Men)

War for Cybertron, and Fall of Cybertron are both intended to begin a sort of renaissance for the transformers series. Along with the most recent television show (On Netflix Transformers Prime), the creators of Transformers intend on creating a more orderly or ‘cleaner’ cannon, with these games and shows (the next film is also set to be created in this vain.) This is being done to fix-up the notoriously difficult canon of the Transformers universe, perpetuated by comic books, movies, a multitude a shows & games, and of course toys.

Fan-boy aside, I agree with Shipwreck 100% about the Vita. Everything on PSN, the original PSP, all the minis, and PS1 classics should all be playable from day one. Not having those features literally leaves the system bare. 3DS on the other hand has really bounced back. Between the lack of focus on 3D and the avalanche of games that are soon to be available ONLY ON 3DS, is what’s making the system.

My Condolences to you Shipwreck for your Grandmother.
Honor her memory by getting a couple 40's and bumping some NWA in your new Caddy.

Also one margarita? Mrs. Shipwreck sounds like a lightweight XD lol

I agree with Wombat regarding the feasibility of getting an iPad for educational purposes when they are so expensive but I also agree with Cheapy that they are a great educational resource.

However, the majority of schools will not be able to afford a fleet of iPads and a child using one to aid their early cognitive development could well be detrimental to their fine motor skills (e.g. how to hold a pen and how to control their hand to form letters whilst using it) if it is not supplemented with other more manual activities.

There is a huge amount of time invested into research and theories on learning styles within the current educational climate and although the theories do differ from each other, the general consensus is that each child will learn best in differing ways to each other.

There is a place within a child's learning for both, but developing an early adoption of technology would be a of benefit to the child. In the UK children as young as 3 years old have their ability to control a mouse and type monitored.

However the counter effect of this dependency of technology is the number of pupils aged 10 that do not know how to use a library or how to find information within a book because of their reliance on search engines to find the information for them.
