Hey Cheapy and Wombat,

I know cheapy mentioned that certain games in Japan launch for more expensive than other ones (any capcom game or FF) and was thinking when I saw the COD Modern Warfare 2 teaser how is activision going to nickel and dime us with this game, and I thought jokingly, "They'll probably charge $70 for it since it's so popular!" and then started to think, maybe they will.

So my question is, do you ever see it happening where game companies will charge more for a game that they know will be really popular and there is a high demand for?

Cheapy, I've heard you mention on a few CAGcasts (including the past 2) about men cheating on their wives being big in Japan.

Is it only the married men doing the cheating while their wives sit unsatisfied at home? Or are the wives doing some cheating too? Don't tell me that the married men are only picking up single ladies?!? Or do they usually do their cheating with a "professional"?

Christ on a bike, Cheapy, quit belching during the show. Did I miss the memo where CAG now means Compulsive Air Gulper? It seems like it's been every single freakin' show of late. If I want to hear belches, I have my very own belch-generation equipment that's primed for use every second that I'm awake, and goes everywhere I do.
There's a reason you don't hear belching on the radio. Because it sucks to listen to.

Hey Cheapy and Wombat,

I always enjoy the TV discussion, but have never heard you two mention LOST? Are either of you fans of the greatest show to ever grace the television screen?

I didn't believe it at first, but I have seen a rediculous amount of people talking about repurchasing 360's. Both of you guys just stated you would on the last CAGCast. Is this driving 360 sales?

Can't agree more. Best show I have ever seen on TV. Jericho is a close second.

Hello CheapyD and Wombat. I really enjoy the podcast and have been listening ever since XTommyDonx started raving about it daily and i wanted to know what your thoughts would be on a CAGCast themed iPhone application. We did have an idea for a side scroller played with CAG members as characters, Or something completely different! I just was wondering if it ever crossed your mind.
Thanks, Zeo1137

So, I was watching the love hotel video and I was wondering why you'd take a camera to film that for your youtube channel and thats when it hit me.

Cheapy being a internet space pimp aren't you afraid of a Cheapy sex tape leaking online?
Especially if the length of the video is less than 3 minutes. :p

Really enjoy the show CHeapyD and Wombat. Cheapy I hear you're going to E3 and I'm intrested to go to. The problem is im 15 and not part of the industry, when supposedly you have to have ties to the video game industry[I hear even working at 7/11 counts] and are 17. I would really like to go because I'm a huge gamer but I don't want to wait two years so, since you've been to E3 quite a few times, do you think it would be worth it and easy enough that I could sneak in without them checking my ID?

Why so much hate towards Heroes??? The show is a very good. The last episode was amazing. It almost brought me to tears. But then again we are talkin about the same people that think that the first transformers movie was crap.

Hey Cheapy and wombat,
I'm trying to start my own podcast and was wondering if you could give me any tips that could help me out? Also a few shows back wombat was talking about a new mic that he got and I was hoping he could give his professional opinion on what mic I should get (factoring in price).

thanks guys -Kambul

Hey cheapy and wombat i'd love to get your thougts on this!

Firstly, Cheapy, i know you read the first Mass Effect book but have you read the second one that apparently takes place 2 months after the game ending?, i guess it leads up to where Mass Effect 2 will take place.

Also a question for both of you

Do you think its worth picking up a PS3 at this time or should i just hold on to my money for the next xbox? either way i'd like to wait for another price drop but i feel by the time that happens the next xbox wont be far off. your thoughts?

Ps. Wombat needs to start answering emails

Hey guys,

Not to rip off Joystiq or anything, but maybe CAG can have its own 360 E-74 survey if the problem seems to get any bigger? I'd set one up myself but I'm sure that it would get much more results if either of you posted it.

I a quick comment and question to you guys. I was watching SNL (2/14/09) and was laughing out loud at the skit with the wii where Alec Baldwin is jerking the wiimotes. What "actual" games have you played with the wiimote that engaged you doing crazy double entendre acts on them.
Keep up the good work. I love the show!

Hey guys,
Knowing that you guys have played many first person shooters, and videogames in general, fast reaction times are a given. Do you think this has any correlation with premature ejaculation?

Hi cheapyz and wombatz. :wave:

I saw some CAGz had CAG trophies like donating to child's play. I donated for two years and thought it would be cool to get one also. But alas I do not have one :-(.

Is it because my paypal email does not match my CAG sign up email???

Also hope ship, wombat, and may many other CAGz can make it out to E3. Do you know what happened to make them want to change it back to the LA convention center venue? I thought the game companies were trying to save money by doing it at the santa monica hotels and sm airport. Something about cuting out the public and freeloaders to save money and limiting to more industry people. Could not remember if it was true or not but that E3 was getting worse year after year and that game companies wanted to cut their attendance at the events too since it was held in Santa Monica/considered unsuccessful by some. Will the E3 be as big like the years before in LA convention center? I am not sure what to expect with the economy being so shittyz and companies cutting back.

Can we also do a CAG meet up and go out for food/drinks? And maybe play some street fighter 4 vs each other. 8-)

Can you do more Your Man In Japan content too please, needs an update if ya got time :bouncy:

PLZ TO B 2 Donate-s0rz... Thankz-s0rz ^_^ :D
CAGz are teh bestz. :grouphug:

Dear CAG,

On March 17th, Hernan **** bought from me a copy of Midnight Club: Los Angeles (xbox 360 videogame). He paid for long shipping. I was nice enough to get it to him within 2 days. I have attached the three conversations I had with the buyer. This is completely ridiculous. I packaged it properly and made sure to mark it is as fragile. The day the buyer received the game he told me that the box is cracked. I apologized and told him it's not a big deal because the game is still in perfect condition. Also, the carrier was at fault not me. I told him you can get a free box at any video store near him. I also contacted him and offered to send him a new free box. He did not reply. He asked me for a return address. I told him to do return to sender and that the address should be ***********************. It has been 9 days. He filed an A-Z claim and he won it. A couple days passed, I asked him if he sent the game back using return to sender. He said that he was not going to send it back and thanked me for the free game. Now I am out about forty dollars and a videogame. I demand that something is done about this because this is really ridiculous. I can basically go buy a bunch of used videogames on amazon, say they came damaged and get my money back and keep the game. How great is that!

Hey Cheapy and Wombat,

What was the message that you two got from Activision's announcement of the sequel to Call of Duty 4 eschewing the original name of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for just Modern Warfare 2? Is it arrogance that they assume it will sell just as well without the Call of Duty name or do you get something else from it? Do you think that the Call of Duty brand that Infinity Ward built up is being given to Treyarch now after seeing that they can sell Call of Duty games as well as Infinity Ward could?

Activision revealed a few weeks back that they had seven "______ Hero" games coming this year: Guitar Hero Metallica, Guitar Hero Van Halen, Guitar Hero Greatest Hits, another Guitar Hero on DS, Guitar Hero 5, Band Hero, and DJ Hero. Would you have nearly as much of a beef with this exploitation if you could export the songs like Harmonix has done with the track packs that they've released?

Hey Cheapy, I've recently started listening to the Adam Corolla podcast and he is hysterical. So my question is if you listen to any other radio talk-show hosts other than your beloved Howard Stern?

I just received an e-mail from Netflix informing me that the fee for Blu-ray disc rentals is being increased from $1 per month to $4 per month. In true cheapass fashion, I promptly canceled my Blu-ray access. Do you guys think, as I do, that Blu-ray discs are far too expensive (especially for movies I already own on DVD)?

Also, the PS3 is such a good upconverting DVD player, do you think most people will cancel their Netflix/Blu-ray access?

Hey Cheapy and Wombat, love the show and have done for the last couple of years!This week, the Major Nelson podcast had Cliff Bleszinski on as a special guest. After all the times you joked about it with Shipwreck, do you think maybe the CAGcast might get a new addition to the trio?
Thanks guys, keep the great quality up! =)

The big controversy here is the DLC. I agree with you guys and really am disappointed with Capcom and others for doing what they are. Personally in this instance I believe the price of the game should be lowered to offset the pricec of the DLC which in turn can increase revenue as well.

What do you guys think should be done in regards to RE5 DLC and what seems to becoming a trend?

Signed up for Netflix. Got you pizzaid! Then to my misfortune, I got strep throat 2 days later. Coincidence? Nope, Netflix gave me strep. <sarcasm>Thanks Cheapy!</sarcasm> At least I had some good shit to watch while I'm sick though.

Hey Cheapy and Wombat, have you guys played Shadowrun? It's $15 and well worth it. Great game, lots of fun. It's pretty much all multiplayer, but has bot matches if you're into the solo stuff ;)

Cheapy and Wombat,

It’s no secret that the companies didn’t want to deliver backwards compatibility this current generation and they pretty much only did it due to pressure. Now both Microsoft and Sony have pretty much given up on it for this gen and looks like they probably won’t have it next gen.

So with all the issues with the 360 RROD, E74, etc. do you think Microsoft will almost be forced into it doing it with the “Xbox 720” due to all the quality issues? I love the fact that I can still play my NES and SNES to this day and they are launch systems. I did have to put a new 72pin into the NES though. I doubt that 20+ years later I will still be able to play Fable 2 on my 360.

Also, what are your favorite beers? Cheapy, can you recommend any Japanese beers for me to try?
