CheapyD is misunderstood (again), Shipwreck plays Darksiders II and Sound Shapes, and Wombat explains what makes him an unorthodox Jew.

Good podcast, but it could be a bit longer. Also, can I have a Hybrid code?

I don't want a code, but I liked the chilled out introspective Wombat more than the devil's advocate Wombat. It felt like he was being contrary with Cheapy just for fun for months.

Shipwreck, you should do a cloud sync with the PS3 version of Sound Shapes and you will immediately have your second platinum.

When I mentioned Rock Band Blitz as a better choice for summer of arcade and Wombat said it wasn't ready, it was reported that Rock Band Blitz passed certification on June 30th...over 2 weeks before Hybrid passed certification. I don't know if that is definitely true, but that's why I included it.

Also, I would like free Hybrid...I guess.

Congrats on your first platinum trophy, Ship! I'm downloading Sound Shapes right now, and I'm holding you responsible for my enjoyment.

Why doesn't Sony regulate trophies? I didn't think a psn game, especially one as short as Sound Shapes would be platinum eligible. There are retail games without platinum.

If that's a critical enough comment, I would like to have a Hybrid code. I sure don't won't to pay for it.

Cheapy,

Not to argue over semantics, but Guam is actually the closest U.S. territory to Japan. I lived there not too long ago, and there were TONS of Japanese tourists who came to vacation. It's definitely not as big as Hawaii, but the climate is very similar and the beaches are amazingly beautiful. It also has the best strip clubs I've ever been to.

Have you guys ever thought of vacationing there?

I have bad news and I have good news. The bad news first: I didn't select your answer as a winning Foosball answer as you didn't pick a specific platform and instead listed both. The good news: The code you would have won didn't end up working for the person who did win it anyway.

I bought Sound Shapes and still haven't played it for either console. But the praise it keeps getting is pretty overwhelming. I'll check it out this weekend.

btw, I would like Hybrid. Random drawing ftw. :)

When can we expect a review of the 3DS XL? Also, I prefer someone who isn't an Apple homer to give the review, thanks.

You can avoid a lot of frustration in SSX just by not bothering with the levels that are filled with death pits. The game is huge so there is still tons to see and do, even if you restrict yourself to the 70% of the levels that aren't filled with annoying crevasses.

I got the platinum trophy, but in Explore mode there are several levels I only played once or twice.

Cheapy, I was born and raised in Tokyo and my Japanese mom used to warn me not stare at the crows or they will peck your eyes out. Must be a Japanese woman thing...

I'm enjoying the podcast... right now! So far so good. 20 minutes in and I don't completely disagree with some nonsense! Just playing, I always agree with you guys.

Also can I win the Hybrid code? ;)

If you guys want to get into DayZ before the standalone (who knows when it will be out) they made it really easy, its not like installing a normal mod. They have a custom launcher just for the mod and it can be steam integrated.

I down for a Hybrid code too, thanks for the contest.

I think you should just drop the show feedback section. Seems like the last four or five episodes open with Cheapy having to justify being himself to fanboys. As he points out this week: Haters gonna hate. So lets stop giving them the time of day. If they are truly that upset about something said on the show, then they probably won’t listen to the next episode anyway. That leaves the rest of us, who don’t care, to listen to a drawn out and unnecessary justification. Why should we get punished? Either drop the feedback, or at least stop responding to these incessant whiners.

Also: Sign me up for some Hybrid action.

Slender is available for Mac!

I think a LOT of people stopped playing Diablo 3. It becomes too dependent on the auction house when you have to improve your gear. Almost everyone that still plays is just milking the AH. It's most fun at Nightmare difficulty but it sounds like you guys haven't even made it that far. =P I can see it on console but Blizzard makes so much profit with the AH that they don't have to. I don't see people coming back to it until an expansion or some type of overhaul. Even PvP can't save it (already expecting it to be unbalanced).

You'd figure bickle would get first dibs on any prizes seeing as how they do the essentially** thank-less job of making shows notes for every CAGcast


**yes I realize they have been thanked a few times prior

Judging by you guys practically ignoring Hybrid (and what little you did talk about just had a meh reaction) it seems that there is little praise for this Summer of Arcade. I don't agree that the Microsoft exclusivity is the problem -- just look at the promotion they ran about a month earlier. All Microsoft exclusives, including Trails Evolution & Minecraft -- both would have been GREAT games for the Summer of Arcade!

Either way, next week I'd like for you to expand on why you think Summer of Arcade is failing. You hinted that it could be exclusivity, but I think its more than that. I think it is Microsoft being arrogant & thinking they can throw anything in the promotion & it will sell gangbusters!

Either way, throw me in the Hybrid random drawing! I enjoyed the demo & beta.
