Hey guys, according to a new report by My Nintendo News and several other sources, it looks like UbiSoft has "accidentally" leaked some details about the Wii U, such as price, release date, and an achievements system. If Wii U decides to go ahead with the achievements-like system, what do you think it should be called, what should it look like, how should it work?

Personally, I would like to see them follow through with their Mario background and make their achievements/trophies called Coins, where each one is shaped like one of the Mario Coins and have the achievement pictures on one side. They can have the same objectives it takes to get the achievement or trophy on Xbox 360 and PS3, but just have them more Nintendo-like. Thoughts?

Here's the My Nintendo News link:

How did you come up with that? Here's the real answer: http://www.cheapassg...84&postcount=11


I believe they have talked about Wombat baking bread on his back. It's a passover thing. I didn't remember Shipwreck took it to the next level. Thanks.

The Wii achievements system should be called "pissing contest." :)

A new Pepsi flavour is coming out, CheapyD. Tell us about combining the Salty Watermelon flavor versions of Kit Kat and Pepsi. Feel free to use an actual watermelon.

When the next gen XBOX comes out how much effort do you think Microsoft will put in Japan? Does MS even need Japan anymore? I'm thinking they are doing fine without.

Hey Guys. Cheapy, you have said in previous CAGcasts that you have avoided PC gaming due to pains in your hands. Have you had a problem with this now that you have gotten back into PC gaming?

With the announcement Sunday that Epic Games was hiring on the majority of former Big Huge Games (and 38 Studios) developers, and the Kingdoms of Amalur IP in the hands of the state of Rhode Island, what chance, if any, do you think there is that we will ever see anymore Amalur games?

Great show, guys, looking forward to hearing the next show!

Wombat, as a fellow fan of Tekken I'd like to know if you got a chance to check out Tekken Tag 2 at E3 and what you thought of it. I don't care what Shipwreck thinks of it.

Hey Cheapy, Shipwreck, and Wombat,

Did this year's E3 provide a big blow to the pre-E3 rumor mill? The big rumor for Sony's press conference was a rumor about Sony investing in cloud gaming for the PS3 by either signing a deal with Gaikai or straight up acquiring them, according to what "sources" told various websites. What we learned afterwards from David Perry is that no such thing ever existed, which is odd to see a big rumor be so wrong about it. The same thing happened with the PlayStation Plus revamp rumors that painted a grandiose picture of what the new form of the service would be, but in the end, it was mostly the same as before. With the way that Sony's E3 surprises are usually leaked beforehand, those two misses were surprising for big rumors that shaped what we were expecting to see. Maybe their mysterious sources are the same as Cheapy's XMB redesign source?

As a website that caters to thrifty gaming, I am surprised that you haven't mentioned the great games being offered for "free" on the Playstation Plus service. Right now you can download Little Big Planet 2, Ratchet and Clank All 4 One, Virtua Fighter 5, Warhammer 40K Space Marine, Just Cause 2, Staints Row 2, Infamous 2, and a bunch of smaller titles.

I'm surprised you guys didn't have any more thoughts on Dragon's Dogma. Seems like the type of game both Wombat and Shipwreck would have played into infinity and beyond. Not so much CheapyD... being that it's not an iOS app

Just joking Cheapy I figure it's just not you're type of game.

For Cheapy and Shipwreck,
I just bought a Vita and was going to grab some of the mini's on the PS Store. I was wondering what your top 2 or 3 mini's are?

Thanks guys!

Just wanted to say this is the only podcast I make sure to listen to on a weekly basis. Keep up the great work guys.

For Wombat;
This is in reference to you talking about Elliot (apologies if I spelled his name wrong) a few shows back; anyway you said you bought him some of the "little people" batman figures. I was wondering if you also bought him one of the play sets or if you could recommend one as my son also very much likes them.

Thanks again 8-)

Hey fellas. Now that Mass Effect 3's Extended Cut is out, have any of you guys checked it out? If so, what did you think of it? If not, why not?

Personally, I thought the endings were nice, even if they SHOULD have been in the game to begin with. Some of the things that were included were probably just thrown in for player bitching, but all in all, I enjoyed it.

Great show, guys! Keep them coming!

What does Wombat think about the new Google media player, the Nexus Q, which will be manufactured in the US (http://www.nytimes.c...s-a-try.html?hp) and cost $300? Does he have any interest in this device, and do you think it has any significance for the future of electronics manufactured in the US?

I personally think Google is going to have trouble selling the Nexus Q, since its competition are other settop boxes. $300 vs. $100 for a Roku? It's a nice gesture that it's built in the US, and the company should at least try to milk the advertising during the Independence day weekend.

So, does anybody seriously believe that the heroine of Brave is a lesbian, because she does tomboy things and does the shocking act of running away from an arranged marriage?

Question for Cheapy and Ship. Now you both have gaming PCs how much time are you finding yourself playing that over your other consoles (mainly 360?). And with the ability to play with the 360 controller (I assume with most games) will you / do you think you'll be purchasing the majority of new games now for the PC?

And Wombat do you feel left out now? - and if you never come into some spare money think about getting one built for you like Ship did?

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Question for all three of you. With so much talk surrounding the Tupac hologram lately, I was wondering if there was one video game character that you could bring to life in that form who would it be?

Keep up the great work you guys!

Hey Cheap, Shipwreck, and Wombat,

What do you guys think of the controversy involving one of Destructoid's contributors, Ryan Perez, and Felicia Day? The basic gist is that he writes a few Twitter comments at her questioning her credentials to be more than a "glorified booth babe," so he obviously doesn't know her but couldn't put the thought on hold for a minute and check Wikipedia. Her friends raise a stink about it to Destructiod and they write a mostly standard Twitter apology distancing themselves from Ryan's comments and begging for her fans' "understanding," which doesn't seem like the right word to use unless I'm mistaken. If you want, check out the last sentence of his bio on his Twitter profile.

Edit: And Destructoid just posted that they've ended their relationship with Ryan Perez.

Edit 2: Since he changed his Twitter bio, the last sentence was "I love the smell of busty women."

Here's another PC / mmo request. Since I live my video game experiences vicariously through you guys, can one of you (Ship) start playing SWTOR and get back to us? It's getting cheap and I a fear they will shut it down sooner than later.

Don't make decisions when you're angry and don't make promises when you're happy.

(Hey guys, love the show, have been listening for a while, but never really went on the forums much.)

Since Shipwreck and Cheapy have jumped into PC gaming, I was wondering if you guys looked forward the Steam summer sale, which happens yearly. It's incredible how low the prices drop, and how a Cheap Ass Gamer (such as yourselves) can end up with so many games for the price of one new release at Gamestop.
