Ship, I know you mentioned Vision a long time ago but I finally got around to it and absolutely loved it. They made me care about a character I never wanted to pay any attention to in the past. Any other suggestions from you or Wombat about similar comics? I know they did something similar with Matt Fraction's Hawkeye series, taking a minor character and giving them a well written story.


Also, Spider-Man is more popular than Iron Man and it's not close. Stop it Wombat.

Not a question, but I’m going to toot my own horn in regards to today’s Iron Man VR news. From the comments in cagcast 573:

It'll never happen but the immersion level of an Iron Man VR game would be insane. You are already putting on a helmet, so it'd be like putting on the Iron Man helment. And you could have the floating HUD and Friday or Jarvis in your ear.

@shipwreck - What are your thoughts on the new MLB The Show iteration this year? Worth the upgrade for someone who last bought The Show '17?


Also what are your thoughts on the multitude of Reds unis slated for their 150th season? Thumbs up or down?

Hello to the 3! I've been listening since episode 1 and have liked every show very much. Never have written in before but something has finally annoyed me enough to say something. This something is actually someone and he is Shipwreck. Now, I believe he is a decent human, a good person even, but his behavior sometimes towards Wombat just annoys me to no end. The last example I can give you was on #583 which I just finished( a little behind I know). Wombat was talking about how he liked how  the speaker in the Playstation controller was used in The Division 2. Just saying that he enjoyed it. Then Cheapy said he thought that was a nice thing too. Shipwreck then chimes in and brings the whole vibe down with "the Wii did that, they took that from Wii". WTF Ship! It wasn't a discussion about the origin of controller speakers! Wombat did a good job trying to sound nice as he responded to Ship but I felt that I could feel a little annoyance in his tone. The whole conversation would've been funny if it wasn't for the whole history, at least to me, of how Shipwreck seems to dismiss Wombats comments or contributions to the show. You just come off as sounding superior Shipwreck.

     I really do like all you guys alot and will listen as long as there is a Cagcast to listen to. Thanks for all the entertainment you've provided me and never stop doing the "Watch this Bitches" segment. My taste in TV and movies run along Cheapys taste.

Did Shipwreck ever finish Shadow of the Tomb raider? If so, what were his thoughts on it? I liked it but thought the story was the weakest of the three.

Will you ever get a digital only console? I for one will not because of all the reasons you all listed in the last podcast. I would like to add one more reason. Fewer cheap games! Last week my son was home from college for spring break. He wanted to play Kingdom Hearts 3. He's a great kid and doing well, so sure lets get the game. We went on the PS store and the game was $60. We were about to purchase it when I thought, "What would Cheapy do? Save that money!" So I went to Amazon and it was on sale for $36. I didn't want to wait for shipping so I went to Best Buy online and saw that it was $39. We drove five minutes to the Best Buy. They price matched Amazon and we have the game for $36.


This will never happen when games are all digital. There will be only one source of content, the PS Store for PS games. What say you?

Anytime I need to remind myself how bad dad-jokes can be, I read Wombat's twitter feed. That Earthday/Sunday joke was horrible, and I can't even understand how he thought of that "joke," then opened his twitter app, wrote it out, read his tweet, and still hit send. I bet he also said it to his kids, and his wife, and is still chuckling to himself about it.


No question pending.

I see wombat plays the latest Zen pinball tables. Do you keep up with current physical pinball tables? There have been incredible machines produced recently, Iron Maiden, Deadpool, Black Knight, Munsters...I would love to hear what you would buy for your home if you were to choose!

Cheapy, any chance you are going to give The Division 2 another chance? It has great Metacritic reviews and is an excellent shooter!


Also, is anyone playing Days Gone?

Just got one comment for now. I think you guys need to advertise where people can post cag questions. Some time ago, I didn't know where that was. There may be listeners who will be encouraged to post questions more if you tell them its on the forums and where more often.

Hey Cheapy and Ship - got probably a common question about your time in Japan.  I'm traveling with my family to Tokyo and Kyoto for a vacation in a few weeks.  I'm interested in any suggestions you might have for a first timer.  I'm hoping to listen to the show after your trip, Ship but I'm not sure which one that  was.  We are staying for 4 nights in Shinjuku and 4 nights in Akihabara with 2 nights in between in Kyoto.  I'd sure appreciate any suggestions to help with our trip.  


Wombat you are the funniest mofo in the podcast world - I laugh at every one of your stupid dad jokes.  Even if no one else does.

Couple of questions and 1 comment


1. If Donald Trump passes a tariff on electronics being imported from China (which he is threatening to do), what impact do you think this will be for the video game industry?


2. I heard that Facebook owns the Oculus VR company. Since Facebook is in the news for having PR problems (accepting ads from Russia, sharing private information of it's users etc), could this stifle sales of the Oculus Rift in the future? An example would be: A person would not want to use Oculus Rift to watch VR porn if they knew that Facebook was collecting data from them.


And for my comment, CheapyD mentioned a medieval fighting game in last weeks podcast but I did not know who to spell the title when I googled it. Can you add the names of the games you've mentioned in the show notes? 


Great job on the podcast as always!!

Can wombat go over his coffee drinking routine for work again?

I remember him talking about it along with stackers but I can't recall the exact episode.

Just got a new job and would really appreciate the advice. Thanks

Hey CagTeam,



I heard about Shipwreck's Plex Server I am interested in building one. ( Legal One) I have a bunch of DVDs I would like to be able to rip and have access via my Phone.  If Shipwreck could point me in the right direction of getting started and did you create any custom client that people could access?

Cheapy were you a kickstarter backer of The Last Arcade? I saw your name in the credits. Wombat if you were in there too, sorry I missed it. It was a long and non alphabetical list

After watching the E3 presentations for MS, Ubisoft, Bethesda and Squeenix, I can confidently say that the pizza cutter was the best thing to come out of E3 this year

I have a question for Arby's superfan Wombat. Are you going to try the new "Marrot" sandwich?

Hey guys, I thought i would back Wombat up on Rainbow six.  I am not usually a fan of too many shooters and prefer RPG, adventure, and sim games(sim city, cities skylines, etc) and most certainly am not a fan of competitive multiplayer shooters. I however really really enjoy Rainbow Six and still play Terrorist hunt regularly to this day. Through the years I've noticed that Ship and I share similar tastes in games (for the most part) and I think he would enjoy it. Give the Terrorist hunt mode a try as it is much more enjoyable, for me anyway, as opposed to the competitive multiplayer portion of the game. I haven't enjoyed a shooter this much since Borderlands 2 and feel that the team behind Rainbow six nailed the gun mechanics and the real sense of teamwork in the game. Wombat- if you ever want someone to team up with add me on xbox, PS4, steam (Orbshunter) I'm always down to play (usually on weekends) Thanks for being the only podcast that i allow notifications for, well yours and Fatman beyond (kevin smith's podacst)

Great show as ever guys, long time listener.


Cheepy, having just finished the main story on Assassins Creed Odyssey, I was compelled to contact you!


Totally laughed out loud at the ending. I don’t know which was funnier, abruptness of the turnaround or the comedy wrestling! If only it was that easy to turn a Girl by  just putting your Spear in their hand (!)


Keep up the good work guys.


P.S. can we get some more drunk sounding slow mo’s at the end of the next episode? They are different, but also good J

With NES and now SNES games being a feature of Switch Online, it looks like Nintendo has abandoned the concept of the Virtual Console.  Do you think they'll make more money long-term on these subscriptions than they would have by selling these games a la carte?

Why were so little f*cks given to the Blizzard controversy.
You played Overwatch for a long time. I think all of you are big Diablo fans. Do you intend to in some way let Blizzard know with your money or otherwise that what they did was not OK? Or do you think it's all business as usual? After playing hearthstone non stop for four years I decided to stop unless Blizzard addressed complains. They did end up giving the banned player his money he already earned and reduced his and the caster bans to six months. So while I have decided to continue playing after the changes as a way to voice my disagreement I will move to be a free to play hs player and will not give them my money again.

Every show, CheapyD says "Let's end this show so we can go to bed."


Who actually goes right to bed after doing the show?

C heapy, did your standing desk help your back pain? Do you still use one? I read that you're supposed to be up and about rather than sitting all day, so I'm curious about them. Thanks and keep on randomly belching mid-sentence.
