What happened to the My Hero Acadamia talk?
It is currently my favorite anime.
I feel like a dork, but It kinda makes me feel 40 years younger.
Are there any other animes that you are watching/enjoying or would recommend?

Do you guys have any recommendations for someone visiting NYC for the first time ever - anything that's not so obvious?

 

It's my first time in America and I'm only there for a few days (I'm from the UK). Thanks!

Hey Cheapy, if you got a chance to check out the COD: Black Ops 4 beta, what do you think of their battle royale compared to PUBG?  COD is so much more enjoyable and a much higher polished experience all around in my opinion.  I will be dropping PUBG in favor of COD come next month.

Would love to hear your guys impressions on the new Williams pinball tables on Pinball FX3!

 

The best table seems to be Medieval Madness. What other Williams tables would you like to see? It would be great to see Indiana Jones, Attack from Mars, or Twilight Zone (licensing would be a challenge though). 

 

FYI, Wombat, you can play the tables on your Switch in vertical mode! Let us know how that plays

I was going to ask for impressions on the Williams tables, but I see it has already been asked.

 

So, when is Shipwreck going to buy a virtual pinball table?

Show feedback!
Been listening for about 2 years now, just wanted to say I vape and I know about the weed deal that has blew up within the community to hid it from others but I've never tried it with my personal set up, but I've had friends who let me try it and yes Cheapy your right it's mixed with other flavors to mask the odor of the weed so no one knows your doing it. Props to the girl who was not giving two shits about what she was smoking.

Cobra Kai - Watch this, Bitches! Listen to Cheapy!

 

I've been wanting to watch Cobra Kai since it was announced, but never got around to it, but after hearing Cheapy's enthusiasm, I decided to sit myself down  the other day to start watching it with my wife, in hopes we'd like it. We just finished episode 5, and we've been loving every minute of it! Yes, me and my wife, as she's also really enjoying it, even though she's never seen the original movies, and it's not easy for us to agree on something to watch. Cheapy was right when he said the show really doesn't have any business being as good as it is, and I'm honestly enjoying it more than the movies! Wombat and Shipwreck really need to start watching Cobra Kai!

Hey guys, it's been a while since I sent in a question.  Cheapy, now that you are back in the states what about Japan do you miss the most?  Wombat, what has been the most fun job you have ever had.  Finally Shipwreck, do you ever miss doing CAGForeplay?  I realize you being full time on the CAGCast is awesome enough.  Thanks guys!

question to cheapy about the business.

 

Do you have plans for growth? I like what you guys do now, but it's a 1 man show (+ 2 voices). you have potential to have more content plus more video game deal opportunities? 

 

What's stopping you, good lifestyle, no motivation to change?

I’m looking forward to your thoughts on Red Dead. The reviews sound like a lot of hype, and I’d rather hear your opinions. Especially Ship, since his opinions on the first game are similar to mine.

Has anyone signed up for the Google Stream beta? Since Wombat was waiting on a sale for Assassin's Creed, might as well try it out for free.

Hey Cheapy, you guys were talking about the Playstation Classic list and I'm wondering if what  you think on this perspective of the list, that like Shipwreck stated, all games are fine games, but imo it's more or less a mix of corporate ass kissing and historical value combined.  Taking a step back and looking at the games publisher or specific games themselves, do you agree with this?   

 

You don't have to read out the rest of this, just give a generalization, but giving you and idea what I think the real meaning of the release should be and why I think they're really screwing it up.  It's like all these decisions came from corporate Sony who have no passion in video games and this release is based entirely from a business perspective. 

 

Think about it.  Persona 5 is the best selling JRPG on the PS4, so they include Revelations Persona.  Ubisoft, Namco, and Capcom are pretty big third party partners, so many of these games are on there because of them.  There are more than a few games that are there because historical value, like Intelligent Qube, Jumping Flash, Battle Arena Toshinden, Destruction Derby(which also might be owned by Ubisoft,) and then many of these games being the original release rather than their far superior sequels.

 

The reason people buy this thing should be both historical value and long time series but also to highlight the reason to follow Playstation in the first place.  Too many of these games were there for historical value or that they started on the PS1 and the corporate ass kissing that I mentioned rather than games that defined the system.  Rayman is Ubisoft and is one of the best selling games of all time on the PS1, but did Nintendo not release Earthbound on the SNES Classic because despite the pathetic sales, people have come to realize how great of a game it is?  Or how about Gran Turismo 2 not being on the list due to licensing purposes, but instead of looking at this as a short term financial gain, they should look at it as something long term by expanding both the Playstation brand and Gran Turismo brand to a wider audience who might want to see what Playstation is all about. It's fine to add some games for historical value or partnership that don't exactly equal a very high quality, but this isn't the NES Classic with 30 games, there's 20 games available, and you're now cutting the amount of excellent games to put on there because the amount of games you feel the need to shoehorn in.

 

Here's the list of games I would have chosen for the PS Classic both historical and quality value.  I just edited what doesn't really belong on the list or altered some games that'd be a better choice(Driver was much bigger than GTA on the PS1 for instance.)  I own every one of these games, but I would have been more accepting of it if this was the list released instead and would have purchased one.  It's supposed to be the PS Classic, not the PS Half-Assed Classic.

 

FF7

Driver 2

Intelligent Qube

Jumping Flash

Rayman

MGS

Oddworld Abe's Oddysee

Einhander

Resident Evil 2

Dragon Warrior 7

Gran Turismo 2

Syphon Filter

Street Fighter Alpha 3

Wild ARMs

Mega Man Legends 2

Castlevania Syphony of the Night

Wipeout 3

Armored Core Master of Arena

Star Ocean the Second Story

Vandal Hearts(not including FFT since FF7 so chose another TRPG.)

Afternoon guys, 

Long time listener from the UK! 

 

Question for you all:

Read Dead Redemption 2 Online beta is due to go live any week now. What game modes would you like to see? Battle Royal or traditional GTA5 style modes? 

 

or maybe just Horse Jousting :D :D

I'm going to assume you guys are gonna talk about the Diablo controversy so I wanted to make a post to let you know where us fans are coming from.  I'm a huge Diablo fan, I would call Diablo 2 my favorite game of all time.

 

The main point I want to make is that the problem isn't 100% that they're releasing a mobile game.  Do I want a Diablo mobile game?  No.  But I don't care that they're launching it.  Blizzard isn't even working on it, they outsourced it to NetEase who has reskinned one of their existing games to make it look like Diablo.  So, this isn't a Blizzard game, it's a game using Diablo imagery.

 

The big problem with this is the way they chose to announce it.  Blizzcon is a convention filled with Blizzard super fans.  They travel from all over the world to go to the con to see new game, big announcements, meet up with friends, etc.  These are your biggest supporters.  A major Diablo announcement was teased previously.  Then the schedule came out and Diablo had the very first panel on the main stage.  Full erection from the fans, me being one of them.  Then Diablo had the FINAL stage presence in the opening ceremony.  What could the announcement be?  Diablo 4?  Diablo 3 DLC?  Diablo 2 remaster?  I'd shit bricks for any one of them.

 

But no, Diablo Mobile.  Diablo 3 players are starved for new content.  The last DLC came out over a year ago and the expansion over 4 years ago with seemingly nothing on the horizon.  Diablo mobile is aimed at casuals, not the audience you're making this announcement for.  It's funny that they didn't understand that and all they could do was make fun of us.  DON'T YOU HAVE PHONES?  That's not the point, Wyatt.

 

Remember what Bethesda did at E3?  They softened the blow of lame ass announcements with teasing the next Elder Scrolls and Starfield.  I believe the makers of Gears did that too when they announced that funko game, they also announced they're working on the next Gears proper.  If Blizzard ended the opening ceremony with a Diablo 4 title card, Diablo 3 voiceover of a DLC character or some shit or a logo for Diablo 2 remastered there would be no problem at all and we wouldn't be having this conversation.  But they bungled it.

 

You might be saying "well you only have yourself to blame for lofty expectations."  But I argue that Blizzard's expectations of what a convention center full of superfans wants was completely wrong.  Announce this fuckin thing on Facebook or something.  They were extremely out of touch with this one.  Know your audience!

 

I probably sound like a crazy person in this post, but this was a massive disappointment to Diablo fans everywhere.  The only thing I can tell you to do to try and understand is replace Diablo with something beloved to all of you.

This is insane. A world were mobile gaming is growing our biggest upset of 2018 is going to be Blizzard, a beloved company for generations of gamers, making a mobile game? Countless times people, including myself, have been found with little to do on a commute or waiting room and pull our the smart phone or possibly a tablet. I'm glad to see some big name developers coming to mobile. 

 

An example is Paladins on pc and Paladins Strike on mobile. Two different games in essence but also similar enough to familiarize myself with characters on the go so when I return to my pc have some sort of foundation already laid out and I never really heard much of Hi-Rez until now. 

 

So to think that this is heresy for Blizzard to not get their proverbial finger in the mobile pie is ridiculous. In 5 years more major developers are going to commit resources to this growing market and all this anger and disappointment will be for not. 

 

We all know they will continue to develop for console and pc alike for years to come as it's a tried and true revenue. However they have yet to tap into the market of mobile and until we play the game should wait to cast stones. Blizzard has never let me down.

 

 

So many people are worried about the BIG SELLER triple A game that they forget how many fans and "super" fans out their don't always have the income to keep their computer up to date in hardware and maybe don't have a PC at all. Maybe getting the next-gen console is too expensive too. Does that make them less of a fan than you? Absolutely not. So bringing in a cheaper alternative on a mobile device that increases penetration of their market by who knows how much in my opinion is a great idea.

Hey, thanks for not reading my post, guess I needed to include a TLDR.  As I said, the problem isn't the game itself, it's the botched announcement strategy.

Would you considering sending your kids to rehab for their Fortnite addiction, after you spent money getting them coaches? You would think getting a coach would make them get sick of the game. https://www.bloomber...ideo-game-rehab

I think Mobile gaming is a fad. Not that I believe it'll go away definitely won't. But I have not installed one mobile game since I got a switch. I think a lot of Gamers jumped on mobile gaming only to find at the touch screen is pretty limiting. I think the switch will take a huge chunk back from Mobile gaming.

Also unlike cheapy and Wombat I've been very happy that all these older indie games are showing up on the switch. The main reason is that I bought them but I never had time to sit down front of my computer or console to play them. Finally on the switch I can play them on the go. It might not be the most new or exciting but there have been a lot that I wanted to play but never had the chance to before.

I know I'm late to the discussion but what are your final thoughts on Red Dead 2?  If I recall, Cheapy finished it, Wombat got to Chapter 2 or 3 and is probably not going back (even though he will claim otherwise :-P ) and Shipwreck played for an hour and was done.  I don't understand how this game got such high reviews across every major website.  In 20 years people are going to think it was one of the best games ever made based on the review scores and it's not even close. 

 

It is basically playing out like a giant interactive movie with no freedom to complete missions like you want.  The hunting, collecting, crafting, eating and weapon systems don't matter at all and the controls are probably the worst I've ever experienced in a AAA game. They sacrificed fun for "realism" at every opportunity.  Sure, the graphics are amazing and the world and characters they created (arguably) feel alive but the rest of it doesn't live up to the review scores it got.  

 

I was standing in front of an open wardrobe last night and the prompts were:
Y: close wardrobe
X: open drawer
 
I'm not a game designer but can we all agree that it's OK if there is never a drawer inside of a wardrobe? Just put the thingy inside the wardrobe and not inside the drawer inside the wardrobe.  Jesus.  That little interaction is a microcosm of the entire experience of RDR2.  I feel like more people should be talking about this.
