I love Sour Skittles. There, I said it.

I find that Skittles taste better when you eat a bunch of one flavor, rather than mixing them up. If you just eat all the flavors together, it starts to taste kind of meh after a while.

People probably thought I was "nuts" at how hard I was laughing in my car when Wombat was talking about golf balls and chicken wings lol.  I don't think I have ever laughed like that listening to a podcast and you guys have had some pretty funny shows before.  And I just kept laughing when Wombat was still laughing.  Wombat was awesome this episode, great stuff.

Just a little info on 1080p vs 1080i if you care?

 

1080i is Interlaced so it only displays half the lines then uses another frame to display the other half.  You still get 1080 lines of resolution but half the frame rate.  You can get 60 frames a second in 1080p but only 30 fps in 1080i.  Not a big deal with movies because they usually only run at 24fps, but not good for games with a high frame rate.  For gaming 720 is better than 1080i because of the loss of frames.

 

Hope that made sense.

I like the podcast but man sometimes it's so maddening how you guys love to talk about things that you only seem to tangentially know or care about (especially last cagcast with the PA thing).

 

I can understand why you may want to avoid gaming news to prevent spoiling yourself from games you are looking forward to but it's also then funny that you want to do a gaming podcast ... and don't play the industry's most antipated games ... and then bag a bit on indie games.

 

But I have to fill my driving commute with something I guess so ... keep up the good work?

 

 

Also regarding Gone Home,

Many have discussed but....

The PS Vita TV might not seem like an awesome idea for a large market but I am definitely interested. I have wanted to play a number of games on the Vita, but have no interest in a handheld device. I also already own a PS3 so I have a controller.

This device seems like the perfect way to experience some games I would have otherwise missed. Plus, I would have access to Vita games that I have "purchased" on PS+ (saved to my account just in case). $100 seems like a solid price point.

I came to terms a long time ago that you just don't listen to the CAGcast for reliable and informed news.

Since none of you are going to play GTAV, here is what I imagine you would say:

 

Wombat: "This game really uses the n-word a lot. I was a little taken aback by it. Did it bother anyone else?"

 

Cheapy: "I can see why people like it and say it's good, but it just doesn't look as good as a PC game. I'd rather play Saints Row and have fun."

 

Shipwreck: "It's.....another GTA game. Yep, that pretty much sums it up."

I started it last night, and yep, pretty much nailed it.

I think everyone on the podcast has missed the point of the PSVita TV. It's price point matches the good Roku and the Apple TV. But unlike those devices, it allows you to both stream PS4 games and play Vita games, which have the potential to be of far higher quality than any phone game (despite Cheapy's comment). If you're in the market for a media streaming device, why would you buy a Roku or Apple TV and pass up the other features for the same price?
