As for a question: If you had to pick only one (pretend that you guys were actually still cheap), which would it be this November: Halo or Call of Duty?

Question for CheapyD:

I'm a long time member (remember the cloudspekk incident?) have been pretty committed to visiting almost daily, but I feel the moderators have killed the forums and discussions that go on at times. Do you enforce this level of moderation? If not, do the moderators have rules you give them to follow on what to allow and what not? It's frustrating to see posts just disappear sometimes. The interesting discussions that can go on and come up help make some posts and the site overall more interesting and lively.

Thank you for the effort you have put towards the podcast, it's one of the very few I continually still listen to weekly.

- Chris

While the system certainly needs to be optimized. The main reason downloads on PS3 take so long to download and then install is more a limitation of the OS the system uses. While the Xbox using windows as a base can download and install simultaneously. The PS3 is linux based. Linux makes sure the entire packet has been downloaded with out errors, al la lost connection, before the installation takes place.This is why the system downloads then makes you wait while it installs the program afterwards. Owners of Android phones have this happen to them also. Download a game from the Play store and it downloads then installs the game after. Google's OS is Linux based also. I agree it is a pain and a serious upgrade is needed. Though may always be slower to Microsoft's download and install at the same time process.

With the CAGcast undergoing a redesign, will you talk about the new Wendy's logo?

Just wondering did Wombat or Cheapy D check out the new show called Arrow about the DC character The Green Arrow?

Do car dealers ever get suspicious because you look at, sit in and photograph these high end cars but never buy any. You think they see you and groan know that you're just going to waste their time?

Hey guys. I was playing Borderlands 2 last night when my almost 2 year old turned off my ps3. This usually wouldn't be a big deal, but I had just used my golden key in Santcuary and collected the gear. When I turned the game back on, my golden key was gone along with the loot. I lost my e-tek gear and the key...woe is me. Either of you have any stories about lost progress and your kids? Would Gearbox listen to a sob story like mine and give me another key? Thanks guys and keep up the good work.

I assume Wombat supports Obama, based on comments he's made about gay marriage, which I applaud. My bigger concern is who does Shipwreck support? He is in probably the most important battleground state in the country, and I know he is a very religious dude (nobody's perfect). Wombat, could you use your powers of persuasion to make him see the light if he's leaning Romney. I'm pretty sure 1% Romney would make fun of a guy like Shipwreck and his (our) nerd hobbies.

Hey Cheapy it seems that since you got your PC you are playing a lot more games than before,but every game you play is on PC what would get you back to console gaming? Also you made such a big deal about wireless hdmi to play on your tv but it seems like you only play on your monitor, why is that?

Hey CAGeteers,
We all know about Shipwrecks adventure at a sporting event not ending well for him (Reds) but what was the last sporting event Wombat or CheapyD have ever gone too or plan to go to?

Keep up the good work you guys, especially Wombat.
Also on a tangent go Giants!

The real question here is this:

What in the flip dip doodle were you singing in the last CAGcast?

Cheapy got Foosball for vita/ps3 and Shipwreck got NBA Baller Beats. What would Wombat's game that nobody else in the world seemed to have played be if he could have one?

What are your thoughts on Star Citizen? I'd love to hear you guys discuss the project and let us know your feelings. Are you guys donating to this? (Apologies if you've already discussed this, I'm behind a week or two on your podcasts)

So Lauren Wainwright had multiple conflicts of interests, tried to cover them all up when caught, threated a lawsuit and then bragged about it on twitter.


And you guys have the nerve to call the guy who she threatened a dick and just call her young and misguided? WTF, guys. I thought I respected you.

What do you guys think about Disney acquiring LucasFilm? Thoughts/expectations on the next 3 Star Wars movies?

First off, hope everything goes well for the Wombat Clan and Cheapy's parents. Glad to see the storm wasn't as harmful for them as it could be and has been for many other Americans.

My question this week, which looks like it's been asked already: what are your thoughts and feelings about Disney-owned LucasFilms and George Lucas stepping down, along with the announcement that Star Wars Episode VII, having officially been announced, will only see Lucas as a creative consultant? Hopefully optimistic for the movies, after seeing the treatment Avengers and the scenes we've seen of Iron Man 3 have gotten with Disney as a financial backer? A certain sense of dread?

Hope everything is ok with Wombat and his family, the CAGcast would not be the same without you.

For this week's CAGcast, I was wondering what your thought were for the Vita.

Recently there was a thread created on CAG titled "Is a PS Vita worth it?".


This thread stirred quite the debate and I was curious of your thoughts (Cheapy, Wombat, Shipwreck) on the Vita and it's outlook into 2013 and beyond.

Personally, I had a Vita but ended up selling it because of the lack of games that interested me on the handheld. The games that I did find appealing were much more enjoyable on my PS3 with an actual controller (Uncharted, MGS, UMVC3).

I will probably pick one up again in the future, but looking at the game lineup, I'm not sure that won't be in another 2-3 years.

Hey guys, love the show. I've been listening for a few years now, but I go through weird video game / Blu-Ray phases, so most of the time I'm just playing catch-up with all the CAGCasts. I usually get back into gaming full-on around this time each year, specifically because you guys keep us all posted on the excellent Black Friday Deals (which I scored big-time on game purchases in the past three years). Basically, because of your site, I've learned that it's better to wait to pick up a lot of recently released games in the Fall until Black Friday. Odds are, they'll be 50% off come Black Friday, so I've found the past few years I've been doing this. My first question is, what games do you expect to be Black Friday contenders this year? I'm thinking Resident Evil 6, Dishonored, Medal Of Honor : Warfighter, Need For Speed : Most Wanted, and Black Ops II.

My second question is for Cheapy (even though since we're both fans of the original, I'm sure we have the same opinion on this) : What do you think of the Robocop reboot? I thought it could have been promising until I saw the suit and the vehicle. The suit from Christopher Nolan's Batman series on a streetbike? I'll take the silvery blue suit with a matte black 80's Ford Taurus any day over that!

Anyway, keep up the great work everybody, and I can't wait for the Black Friday fun to begin! :)

Dear Shipwreck,
Have you every considered hosting a CAG rally somewhere in the Cincinnati area? I am a university student in the area and would love to socialize and network with fellow CAGs.

Do you guys have a preferred device for Netflix streaming, now that there are so many options? I just got an Apple TV and was shocked out how pretty the Netflix UI was, compared to everything else out there. It will probably replace the PS3 as my preferred Netflix device, unless there are some performance issues I'm not aware of.

P.S. I was starved for entertainment during hurricane Sandy, when I discovered two CAGcasts saved locally on my iPhone. A pleasant surprise since I normally listen via the website, and had forgotten about my iTunes podcast settings. Thanks for rescuing me from my first-world white people problems!

Hey guys,

Any chance I can get a cag response to the Free to play Developer Diary video for Star Wars The old Republic
? One of the purchasable items is an axe... that's right, a god damn axe over a lightsaber. What the hell is going on here? Thanks.

Should I get a Vita or 3DS? Two great Black Friday deals/bundles are coming up and I need help making a decision. If you could only own one of the two which would you pick after owning and playing both?

I've been listening to the podcast for a few months now. It's the highlight of my weekly commute to the office. I've got a CAG Bag / Watch This Bitches question for you.

I recently stumbled upon Real Steel on cable, and was inexplicably entertained by this movie... Am I alone? Should I see a doctor or something?

Anyway... Great Show, keep it up!
