There is a female Ninja Turtle. She was introduced in the live action Ninja Turtles show that came out in the late 90's. P.S. the show was a little better than the musical, but not by much.   http://turtlepedia.w...i/Venus_de_Milo

I think the Ninja Turtles live action TV show with the female is on Netflix, or at least it was. Also for Infamous Second Son, the Paper Trail extra quests are pretty fun using the Internet and the game.

Persistent diving bell game FTW!!  I've never been the type of person to go to midnight game releases but I've already got my tent and rations packed and ready to go once this game is announced.  There's nothing better in my mind than being able to wave at other players with a mechanical claw while observing the sea life around me!

Good show.
I am not a fan of the metacritic score on amazon. I am not a fan of metacritic ratings to begin with. Having a low score next to a game will deter people from buying it. I don't see how this will be good for amazon at all.

DId Shipwreck create a video game genre term? The "Fumbly"?    Will we start seeing First Person Fumblies, Stealth Action Fumblies, or Role Playing Fumblies?

Wombat . . . even though Frozen has many songs, THE Frozen song is obviously "Let it go."

 

As for the show "Jessie". . . we stopped letting our daugher (who is 6) watch it. It portrays adults as idiots and the amount of talking back is absurd.  I think that show needs a "Very Special Episode" where Luke falls off the balcony.

Well this was the first podcast of any type I've attempted to listen to. I got about 10 minutes in and gave up. I didn't dislike it, I just don't understand why they exist.

I played the ESO beta. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't that great either. After experiencing the whole TOR fiasco, I'm skeptical towards any new MMO. Which is why I think ESO will be traveling the same path that TOR did/is. And it's not like I'm against MMOs - I actually started to play WoW again last month.

Danke for the show fellas!

 

@Cheapy:

 

You should really give Adam Sandler's comedy LP a listen.  It's an absolute classic representing sophmoronic college humor in the vein of Animal House.  With the exception of Hotel Tranny (which is very underrated IMHO) his movies are complete crap but that comedy album LP launched a one billion dollar career of filming poopshoot.   

 

I'm out for Wombat's warhammer giveway.  Give that one to somebody who wants it.

Kind of sad when Deathlok cosplay at comic conventions looks better than Agents of SHIELD.

Nerd-voice call-out in the show feedback, right off the bat! I'm tempted to shoot for it again, but perhaps it would be best not to kick that particular hornets' nest. Insufferable pretension definitely seems to get the crew's attention.

 

Thank's for the mention fellas, whiny nerd-voice and all!

I agree with Cheapy, Arrow was quite good, watching Oliver being systematically outplayed was quite entertaining. I feel like Agents of Shield is on the cusp of goodness, but it just isn't quite there. I am hopeful things will hit the ground running in season 2 once they can start with a season long arc in mind. Though with Whedon being busier next season with the next Avengers movie, it could go the opposite way as well.

 

Re: The Xbox One interface, what do you expect, it's Microsoft. They are the king of figuring out what works and then jettisoning it to sell something different. It's why every other PC OS they put out is crap.

 

It's possible they were originally doing to feature a real tribe and then legal told them no since everyone is so easily offended by any tiny little thing. I do think it would have been much sillier / stupider to gain powers from totem poles, "the spirits" are not the source of his powers after all.

Gotta love when Cheapy and Wombat are at each other's throats a little :) hopefully it is played up for listener enjoyment, but either way it's fun to hear.

And I would take that free copy of Warhammer 40K.

I get the business that led to the meta critic on amazon but i find it a bit distasteful.

Sorry Cheapy, but Wombat owned you in your argument about Metacritic and Amazon. He was even on point with the counter-slam you when you brought it back up. Great show.



#26 RiPPn  

Posted 05 April 2014 - 05:30 PM

Metacritic did use to have an option to buy the game you were looking at the review for on their site.  It was something like a buy now with a price and if you clicked on it, it took you to another page that showed prices from multiple retailers including gamestop and ebay with the cheapest listed on top.

I don't really get the desire to get a Netflix box.  Whats wrong with the PS3 or 360 that you have almost assuredly already boxed up?

 

 

Oh, and Towerfall is pretty awesome.  Protip, a Vita hanging around counts as one more controller.

A couple of things...curse you Wombat for the Xbox Volume Up O:)

 

I know 2/3 of the Cagcast crew are Apple guys, but I thought Universal Apps coming to the Xbox One was a big deal.  You pair that with the DX12 news from the other week you have a really interesting confluence of events.  Devs can now quickly apps that will appear on the PC, tablet, and the Xbox One.  The second big deal about that is devs can now have you buy once for the PC, phone, tablet, and Xbox One and have it applied for any other Windows device you use.   That combination of ideas could be enormous for Microsoft over the coming year. 

 

It has been a while since I have seen an update on app or a game on the Xbox One.  Do you have it set up to update in the background.

I use them to pass time and here different view points. Plus, I'm gonna start commuting in August 2 1/2 hours every day so it's nice to have in the background.

Cheapy D, are you suggesting that Microsoft should've given Sony free reign on sales and released the Xbox One later? I personally think they made the right move and they are fixing things/adding features every month.

 

Did you say "Xbox, Select" to bring up the voice command options on that update screen? Pressing B when launching a new app (like the Games and Apps section) should also take you back to your last running game or app.

 

Wombat, The Yes command when turning off was a bug of the March update, which is already fixed in the April preview that will be released soon. Also in the April update, game and app updates are much more streamlined and as long as your console is in Instant On mode, they should be updated automatically.
