Night Trap was horrible.  My SegaBeast (Genesis + SegaCD + 32X + PowerBase Converter) still works, but that's one game that shall never again soil the system.


I was considering holding out for the Definitive Tomb Raider until Amazon had the PC download on sale for $5 -- hard to argue with that...




Please count me in as interested in a Max code.

I'm mentioning that you stated I should mention something about the show to indicate that I'm indeed listening to the show for a chance at one of the three Max Curse of the Brotherhood code.

Hey Cheapy,
why don't you raffle off your old video card and link it to a charity of your choice. For shipping, I sure people are willing to pay.

I would love a copy of Max and the Curse of the Brotherhood!




Wombat thanks for explaining all that ad sales stuff. Totally agree with Shipwreck about watching videos to see the game in action. 90% of people will probably know if a game is for them just by seeing it in action.

And Wombat is way too into all things DC/Marvel. And Shipwreck paid $50 for a GI Joe figure. (Shipwreck obviously, I think it was $50)


Great show guys!

OlliOlli is also a part of the Vita Play promotion to lower the price through credit back if you buy 2 ($3 back), 3 ($6 back), or all 4 ($10 back) of the featured Vita games coming out the next 3 weeks, though one of them is a $32 Dragon Ball Z game, the other two are $8.

The next Elder's Scroll game probably won't be inferior on Xbox 1 as Microsoft will likely pay through the nose again to make it the primary platform and get time exclusive DLC. So instead of a better PS4 version and a shittier Xbox 1 version we'll just get the shitty Xbox 1 version on both platforms.


"Good Enough"

I would like to win a code for Meax on Xbox One. Wombat's insight into the Machinama BS was great. Bought the Witcher 2 for 360 when It was on sale and I'm hooked. Back to Tameria!

I'd like to place my entry to win one of the Max: The Curse of Brotherhood codes for Xbox One.


Regarding the conversation of trying to demo voice commands for your ex-MS friend with Kinect:

 - My 15 yo daughter insists that the Xbox 360 Kinect understands her best with a fake British accent

 - I find that I usually have to repeat myself often when using the Xbox One kinect

 - The one time that I had your exact same issue I found that my Xbox One was not in standby mode for some reason (maybe an auto update?).  When I manually started it, it went through the long startup sequence. Perhaps this was your issue.

I would love a code to the xone game..........I fell asleep, so the game is like Tony Hawk, right?

I don't really care who Microsoft pays for youtube videos, all I know is that my ears went cross eyed listening to you guys explain it.


EDIT:  And for the love of god, will podcast people stop saying Xbox voice commands during podcasts.  I had Brad Shoemaker turn off my system while I was leading a race in Forza the other day and Cheapy just knocked me out of 2nd place in an online race during this show.

Hey Cheapy,

John at 8-4 Play has bad back pain and needs suggestions on a Standing Desk. Help your boy out with recommendations.

Wombat put me in for Max Curse of a Brotherhood giveaway.

Proof I listen to the show... You ask for proof that we listen to the show. :)

Way ahead of you. I sent him a copy of Dr. Sarno's book buy I don't think he is buying into it.

I had no idea people pay that much for cable and internet in the US. Finland has a high cost of living like Japan, but seems like we are ahead in these tech things. We don't even have analog cable TV anymore, it all went digital six years ago and you can pretty much just pick and choose which channels you want. And I pay 10 euros a month for 100mbs internet connection (20mbs connection is free). 


I like hearing anecdotes like these (maybe boring for some, but not to me) about living in the US or Japan. I've always wanted to live in either country for maybe a couple of years (I've visited both)!

My favorite moment of this show is when Wombat said that he fell asleep for 5 minutes and asked (Shipwreck) whether Olli Olli is like Tony Hawk. CheapyD's laugh afterwards is the icing on top.


CheapyD's collection video is entertaining, especially with Tai in it.


Shipwreck's usage of adequate in this show is inadequate.


Please also consider adding me for one of the Wombat's codes for Max Curse of the Brotherhood for XBOX One.

There was a Mario four swords game? I thought it was a Legend of Zelda game.

I'd take a Max code if there is one sitting around.

I played Insurgency back when it was a free Source mod years ago... probably 2007 or 08? It was the first game I played that had an ironsight mechanic, actually. I wonder how similar this "full game" is.

So, what I learned from the podcast is that if I like Tony Hawk, I will really like Max: The Curse of the Brotherhood. Crossing my fingers for a code.

I dunno... a skateboarding game that focuses on insanely large combos. To me, that's Tony Hawk in a nutshell. And watching OlliOlli's gameplay footage, I just think "It's Downhill Jam for the Intellivision." Once it's on PS+, I guess I'll finally figure out the difference.


And I was astounded by Cheapy's game collection! But he didn't actually play any of them not called NHL or Mass Effect, right?

Today's show almost felt educational, what with Wombat dropping mad knowledge. Also, I'd just like to say that I was so happy to hear Wombat and Shipwreck say Iron Man 3 isn't bad. I watched it again with my son the other day, and we had just as much fun as when we saw it in the theater over the summer. He's 4, mind you, but still. It actually makes more sense the second time you see it, I think.


Also, i'd LOVE a code for Max: Curse of Brotherhood.

Reason why I listen to this show is you guys just have so many different stories and interests asides from video games that really keeps this show remaining interesting.  Always look forward to my Cagcasts on  my drive to work

I want in on the Max code as well.  


And I'm with Team Wombat. Powerstar Golf is good fun, and definitely worth the $15.

Hey guys. I would normally never try for one of those free games that you give away but my son is very sad that I traded need for speed and assassins greed black flag for NBA2K14. It would be nice to surprise him with Max. He's been asking for it. Great job guys keep it up. (Mario 4 swords) breads done!

How's Cadillac and Dinosaurs, Shipwreck? I've only played the arcade game and it's your standard Capcom beat'em up.


I have seen the comic books and toys at a store, but never bothered to check them out.


I view that paying Youtubers to promote their items to be kind of similar to giving away elaborate swag for a video game.

Loved the Michigan J Frog bit. Absolutely perfect. And it needed this gif...


"Xbox on!"

I don't have that Tony Hawk clone that Boatcrash was droning on about, so it would be sweet to get a code for Max: the Curse of Brotherhood. Love the show.

Wombat did a great job explaining the ad stuff.  MSFT has been pretty stupid with their marketing of the Xbox One, but I was having a hard time believing they would be just as stupid when it came to legal stuff.  Wombat's explanation cleared all that up.  Good job guys!


This compliment is free of charge with no strings attached, since I don't own an Xbox One and consequently don't need a Max and the Curse of Brotherhood code.

That Xbox On thing happened to me too. I guess it's just Murphy's Law :/

With both being similar architecture and multi-platform dev tools being lot better than they were last gen. I think Skyrim(bethesda) level difference in game performance might not stay till late. But yes there might be permanent ps4/xbox one difference like there was between Console and PC ports because of the obvious difference.

Also, I think the day Crimson Dragon is on sale, I'd make my first Xbox One digital purchase. They need more sales :P
