There is no silent L in Wolfenstien.

We also call soda, "pop" so we are a little off in the Buckeye state.

Damn, first time I heard about your accident Wombat. I sure am glad you're still alive and kicking. Listening to this podcast for longer than I care to remember and I would been hella bummed if you'd pulled a Ryan Davis (what a great guy he was!).

 

And btw I am from Germany and no one here would pronnounce Wolfenstein like any of you on the podcast do :)

I logged in just to second this. My heart sank a little when we got a techno beat instead of foreigner.

Haha. Me too. I hadn't logged in for years.

There were plenty of Amplitude fans that took offense to Rock Band Blitz only having two notes, though the progression/power up stuff was a bigger part of me not playing it for very long. Rock Band Unplugged was a better adaptation of the Amplitude idea, though the lack of DLC support and it being a PSP game was an issue.

 

WB has turned the Batman series into the Batman: Arkham series, as stupid as that is.

 

I get what you mean about Warframe's art style, but the game is fun and I've never felt any need to spend money on that game.


You read it. You can't unread it.

Maybe it's an Ohio thing, but I've always pronounced Wolfenstein the way Shipwreck does!

QFT 

 

Shipwreck is correct about that being the way Wolfenstein is pronounced in the midwest.  Wolf3D and Doom were THE GAMES when I was in middle school and EVERYONE (in my middle school, in Ohio) pronounced it the same way Ship does.

Also note in Warframe periodically hands out discounts for the Platinum for daily logins. They come in 25%, 50%, and 75% off. With the discounts the prices for their goods sound much more reasonable. I got 1000 plat for 12 bucks on my last 75% discount, which has been enough for me to buy bits and pieces here. 

 

Another thing to note is a lot of the game is aquireable in game, between using in game cash, the research you get in clans, and periodic events. 

 

When I first started Warframe, their prices were the same and my friends and I really felt they were out of whack with what they were charging. Only really after a discount did it feel worth it.

Lol you guys crack me up. I have never heard Wolfenstein pronounced with emphasis on the "E". I don't know if Wombat was joking or what. In the original game the castle was named Wolfenstein and full of Natzis so I assumed it was Wolfenstein with emphasis on the "I". I don't know how vowels work in German but I assume the guys that pronounced stein as steen were arrested on suspicion of being jewish ;)

 

CheapyD, you need to get your family out of Japan!! I just watched this week's episode of Vice and they really put the whole ordeal into prospective. I knew about the shit leaking into the ocean but from what scientists were saying its a drop in the bucket. Those guys on the episode are comparing this disaster to 168 times the magnitude of Hiroshima!! All I am saying is if a nuke went off three and a half hours from my house I'd be getting the "Fuka" out of here. Man forget Frontline's weak ass shows. That shit is for old people haha. NSA been collecting internet data since Echelon. Program scale grew along with the tech. Got to watch Vice for real news on HBO and Youtube.

 

Damn Wombat hope you get well soon. You sounded good on the show glad you made it this week.

Batman:  Arkham Knight is set in all of Gotham as I believe Origins was set in all of Gotham.

I have seen Young Frankenstein, but I have not seen Young Einstein. However, I have seen Little Einsteins.

 

I should have got the reference. I blame it on my kids arguing all morning and making me go slightly insane.

Cheapy might want to watch the latest episode of Vice on HBO, since he likes depressing stuff.

To everyone talking about the Wolfenstein pronunciation: Wombat was making fun of Shipwreck for pronouncing it WOOFenstein. The Wolfensteen pronunciation was a joke.

 

I always thought that the Arkham branding was so that they had an excuse as to why the city was full of criminals you could beat up instead of regular pedestrians. But I've only played Asylum and about the first third of City.

Origins was the same section of Gotham that housed Arkham City. WB Montreal just used the same overworld and changed some things.

blacketj beat me to the punch on the PS3 response, so I'll just wish Wombat has a swift recovery and savory vengeance.  C'mon Wombat, try vengeance!  Just once!  You might like it!

I quit listening once CheapyD dismissed Shipwreck's cat's cancer over whiny-ass Wombat's "near death experience", a topic already mentioned times and times again all over this website and Twitter.

Listening to the CAGCast is now more and more akin to a chore.

With the Halo collection they should release the various campaigns and then offer one multiplayer mode for the whole package. It would feature all of the maps (or the most popular maps from each of the Halo games) and the host can choose rules to play under. Want to play with Halo 2 mechanics and weapons? select Halo 2 rules, want to play the map with Halo 4 mechanics and weapon, select under Halo 4 rules. That way they don't shard the user base and they can pool all their resources into one ultimate multiplayer mode instead of trying to emulate several different 360 multiplayer modes. They could call the multiplayer mode "Halo Remix" or something, let everyone pick their favorite flavor of poison right alongside people who may not care either way.

 

There have been lots of different styles of Batman games over the years. The Arkham games are its own subset of Batman games. They use "arkham" so that the customer immediately knows it is another game from that subset. It's like the reason they call the CoD games "Modern Warfare" so that people knew it is not in world war 2. If they had been planning ahead, a couple of games ago they would have added a more generic main title to make that the new brand name for marketing purposes, <Splinter Cell Batman>: Arkham City, then <Splinter Cell Batman>: Origins, and finally for the new game <Splinter Cell Batman>: Dark Knight or whatever. But 3+ games in they feel its too late to change the branding.

 

With the Microsoft pay wall features they are like any other greedy corporation, they tried to get away with it as long as possible. It's only after the Xbox One hit an iceberg that they have started throwing everything not bolted down to the ship overboard to try to stop the ship from sinking.
