Great show guys! 


Here are a few things for Wombat regarding his issues with Fallout 76. i'm enjoying the game so far, the worlds impressive and seems to have a lot to explore. Frame-rate is a little poor in the standard PS4  though.

-Vault Tech built a few normal vaults for preserving mankind. Vault 76 is one of them. This was documented in previous games. 


-You can find armour and clothing on dead body's along with in the world without having to purchase them for real money. 


-Stick a turret in your base, it will help keep you from being interrupted. This is similar to Fallout 4 when you're base could be attacked.

Hitman 2 already kind of has what Cheapy wants, which is called Mission Stories in Hitman 2 or Opportunities in the first season.. They're quests that offer step-by-step guides for doing some of the ways you can take out targets or getting some neat items to help you out with that goal. I'd suggest doing some of them your first few times when playing a level to get a grasp on a target's path throughout the level and some of the cool stuff you can do in each area.

 Have not finish the episode, but Im curious why do you guys (Cheapy,Shipwreck) care so much if Wombat gets or asks for free stuff. I know you guys pawn it off as you are joking but you do it every time. When Wombat talks about something you always ask right away how did you get it? did you ask for it.?   Just something that was on my mind, Great show so far and I will disagree with wombat on Titan's I find it really bad and I know Cheapyd Won't like it. There is a lot of talking with about 3-5minutes of action in each 50minute episodes.

I asked because I am genuinely curious. It’s not often we get AAA games sent to us unsolicited.
Also, it’s dunny.

Wombat, I'm almost surprised you didn't say to Ship that'll you send him $2 so he can justify that Injustice 2 purchase. Then I remembered you're cheap. Then I remembered how much I identify with that. Then I remembered this is cheapassgamer and that is a great game for cheap. This website is literally about getting great deals on games. So then I felt better about whether or not a few bucks makes a game look better to me. Then I remembered it did.

Edit: omg, the drunk talk at the end was PERFECT lol

The first time I heard the phrase "Fallout '76" my mind went to a different place. Was really hoping it was going to be set in a world that was destroyed in 1976. Bicentennial year / 70s cars and architecture. Kind of like a Fallout version of "Vice City" with very specific design and music of the times. Anyway, I canceled my preorder, but looking forward to Wombat's Weekly Fallout report to let me know what I'm missing.

Thanks for the laughs, Switch Game or Not is a new weekly favorite. It's better when you do the buzzer though!


Re: Fallout 76, do you think the game would be better if they followed GTAV / RDR2 and put out a traditional, robust SP campaign with a MP mode a month later that complemented SP progression but was easily ignored for those who want SP only? Even Destiny / D2 has a good balance of content that feels like SP vs stuff you need other players for.

Saying you're not going to watch the game awards because you do not want to see awards proves that you don't know what the show is. Probably not even half the show is about giving awards since alot of the time is announcements and the show is more akin to a press conference. The show since its rebranding has been much more enjoyable and I think is a good watch.

Hi guys. Enjoyed the episode. Been missing your Black Friday show of savings the last few years, isn't that what a CAG is all about!?  Anyway just wanted to chime in on your discussion about the game awards.  I always have too many games I want to play and not enough time. The game awards usually bring attention to the best games of the year and help me plan my next purchases, especially if a game went under the radar and it wouldn't have gotten attention otherwise on the big gaming sites (although most likely the games are all ones we've heard and seen)  Rarely game award shows have a few unexpected surprises (That Dragon Cancer won for a game award in 2016 was pretty emotional speech)  Although I don't expect to get emotional for Call of Duty or Red Dead Redemption 2 winning awards, I just hope the game awards do something worth watching.  Give us the full CAG report!  That goes for Oscars and other award shows too!

Any plans on playing red dead online?  It will most likely not nickel and dime us on release, and possibly best time to enjoy the online.  Or are you guys burn out?  Personally took a break since beat saber is out.  Definitely recommend cheapy to dust off psvr for it.


BTW, this is what I thought of Cheapy playing ranked table tennis with kids.  No mercy!
