Cnet ran an article titled "37 best games for the Switch" and the very concept made me laugh. How many games does it take to justify a system? I think only 2-3, using the Switch as an example, I'd say Zelda BOTW, Mario kart 8, and Mario Odyssey.

Question for shipwreck, closing on a new house with a theater room setup in the basement. Looking for recommendations for a projector (previous owner took theirs). Seeing lots of options including 4k but not sure what brand you would recommend. Would like to also use it for gaming (series x) so input lag is a concern too. Any advice would be great!

I don't have a question, but wanted to give you fellas a heads up that there is reportedly a great pinball arcade that has just opened up at the Bay Shore mall called High Score Pinball Arcade. You pay $20 for an hour, or $35 all day to play all the machines. Might be fun to check out!

Can we get an update on wombat's diet? Do you listen to any podcasts for inspiration for healthy choices? I've been listening to Ethan Suplee's lately and like it a lot.

Can we get quote from veterinarian Mrs. Shipwreck about people talking Ivermectin for COVID-19?

I've been entering the WOMBAT5277 creator code in all of my weekly free Epic Game redemptions. This left me wondering, what does this provide you, Wombat? V bucks or something else?

First a little lesson in how to pronounce this letter:  Capital letter Å - lower case å

The letter sounds pretty much exactly like the word «awe» 

 

In Norwegian we pronounce the letter «A» like from Arabic word «salaam» 

I hope you understand that this lesson is for sure made for fun

 

 

 

Another question from Hell Norway at the end, but som intro to put ting in context to what i am thinking of.

 

Has anyone of you guys ever played DiRT Rally, DiRT Rally 2.0, DiRT4 or Project CARS 2? 

 

If so. Have you raced at the Racing Track in Hell Norway: Lånkebanen in any of those games? 

 

It happens so that I am living just 2,4 Kilometeres from the track, and if it hadn’t been for a small forest of some trees, I would actually see my house from the track in the game. 

 

I remember that our Almighty Lord of the laugh: Wombat said one time, that he was able to orientate in Tom Clancys: The Division, just from the fact that he lives in NewYork. 

 

Lånkebanen has been a place I have been going to to watch RallyCross and other Car meetings for all my life., And the weird feeling to race on that track in a racing game is hard to describe. The environments and all seen from the track is pretty damn close to how it is here IRL. 

 

My Question is as follows:  «Are there more games Almighty Wombat, Burping Cheapy or our beloved Sensible Engineer ShipWreck have played that have recreated real places you know in a way so you either could orient and navigate yourself around, or awoken a sensation of «this is becoming almost worryingly realistic!» 

 

Best Regards OilBeefHooked

Hell, Norway

Do you think Wombat is interested in Arby's Smoked Sweats???

"Arby’s Smoked Sweats are smoked in small batches in a Texas smokehouse and available in limited quantities. We recommend buying vs. waiting."

Is Long Island the poor, have-sex-with-your-cousin, shit hole part of New York that Only Murders In the Building keeps knocking it down as?  I had always thought of it as synonymous with the Hamptons or Montauk, being an obscenely high cost of living spot for fairly wealthy residents.  Though I am admittedly not from the east coast.  Maybe I’m just not getting the joke.

Hey guys, long time listener here. Thanks for all the great shows over the years.

I have just brought a quest 2 off your good reviews. My question is what are the best games to get for it to start with (apart from Table Tennis!)

Cheapy,

 

Last week I was sitting around the house listening to the new episode when you mentioned a new show on Netflix called Swap Shop. It sounded interesting to me, so I paused the podcast right when you said that and turned on the show. I watched the first three episodes back-to-back and found them to be entertaining schlock.

 

The next day I continued the podcast assuming to hear how much you enjoyed it and immediately after the point I paused the episode, you start going in to how much you and Mrs. Cheapy hated the show, how fake it felt, and that you guys only made it about 20 minutes in before quitting. I’ve been listening for 8 years and have never written in before, but I just found this kind of funny and wanted to share.

 

Keep up the great work guys!

Hi Boys, been listening for a long time now and I don't comment much, but I had an idea for the annual best of the year awards show. How about the best deal you've gotten over the past year? Might be harder than you'd think... Keep up the great show!

Anyone watching Saturday Morning All Star Hits (or SMASH) on Netflix? Kind of in the vein of I Think You Should Leave, and also has a lot of SNL pedigree to it.
I binged the whole season last night. It's slow to start, but by the end I found it got better. Some of the cartoons were quite amusing, really like the Pro Bros best. Would love to know what you guys think if you watch it.

Cheapy, you mentioned a few episodes ago that you liked the Saatva brand mattress. Which type did you get? The innerspring or regular memory foam? What do you like about it?

Thanks from a long time listener!

I was just reminded about Star Citizen. Can you talk about this blast from the past on the next show? It’s crazy that Chris Roberts took in over 300 million dollars, some people prepaid thousands for spaceships, and 15 years later after two hardware generations there’s no sign it’s ever coming out. But they’re still selling it.

Cheapy, I know you've mentioned your love of Robocop. Tell us what you like about the movie and series! I just got the Arrow Video 4k release with all the bonus features, what do you think of it?

If you like that Arrow release, I'd recommend their ReAnimator and Basket Case releases too.

Not sure if this is of any interest to you guys, but here is a list of games I’ve bought over the last 12 months, almost exclusively because of Ships recommendations on CAGforeplay, but also the CAGcast.

Elebits (Wii), Loco Roco (PSP), SSX Blur (Wii), Puzzle Quest: CofW (NDS), Elite Beat Agents (NDS), Hotel Dusk: Room 215 (NDS), Picross and Picross 3D (NDS), Rockstar Table Tennis (360), Anno 1701: DoD (NDS), Dark Sector (PS3), Blast Works: BTD (Wii), Ninja Town (NDS), Mushroom Men (Wii) and Mushroom Men: Rise of the Fungi (NDS), El Shaddai (360), Red Faction Gurerrilla (360), Psi-Ops (PS2), Viva Piñata (360) and Viva Piñata Pocket Paradise (NDS), Naughty Bear (360), Boom Blox (Wii), Chromehounds (360)

I buy a lot of games.. this is just kind of a small sample… But these are all games I definitely wouldn’t have picked up without hearing your guy’s recommendations, just thought you might like to know people still listen to opinions you had over a decade ago.

Wombat always talks about Guy Fieri, but what does he think of Gordon Ramsay?
