REZ HD was the first time I've had the pleasure of playing this awesome game.
Since CheapyD is such a big fan, I was wondering what you two thought of Panzer Dragoon Orta and Jet Set Radio Future: two games that came out around the same time and have the same gameplay feel REZ has imo.

P.S. Xbox 360 Gamerpic update please

Tyhana, I'm like that too, don't worry. Without checkin out the booklet first, I feel like I'm missing something..


Anyways, Cheapy and Wombat, my question is;

What old ass game from ANY console would have benefitted the MOST from having "Achievements?"

Because we all know that games from the NES era or even before that, were so damn awesome, despite the stupid amounts of collecting shit, fighting repetitive enemies, impossible bosses, and finding obscure as hell secret areas.

Like, imagine getting an achievement for finding one of those secret stores in Zelda that you had to find by just placing random-ass bombs everywhere.

Or imagine an achievement for a Castlevania game; "SHATTERED 1,000 candles"

I think some of these games' replay value would be awesome. That way you could prove to your friends that you actually DID beat Super Mario Bro's in 8 minutes...or whatever silly ass accomplishment...

When I was listening to the last CagCast, and I heard of the Grand Theft Auto lawsuit payout, I immediately jumped up to check my copy to see if I still had the receipt. For whatever reason, I normally will throw the receipt in the case, and I figured there was a good chance I still had it.
Low and behold, I still had it.
I qualify for $35!!! SWEET!
I've heard other podcasts reporting the same news about the lawsuit, and what the payouts are, and one popular one were damned excited about it, and were looking forward to Taco Bell when their check came in the mail.

But the more I thought about it.. I don't think I'm gonna 'cash in'.
It seems to me, that is the whole reason why this hot coffee lawsuit came about in the first place.
For someone to cash in. I didnt give 2 shits about the hot coffee mod.
If I were to send in my receipt and receive my $35, I'd be a hypocrite.
I'd just be cashing in.

What do you think?
Is it hypocritical to you to report in disgust about Fox news and Mass Effect on one hand, then turn around and cash in on GTA for a burrito on the other?
Seems like it to me.

Maybe I'm crazy, and maybe we really do need to support censorship through meaningless lawsuits like this one.
Any thoughts?

sort of ironic coming from the gentlegamer?

Wombat, I know you have been hard on VF5 for trying to sell us game content already on the disc, but I think in this case the content has to be there for when you play online with someone who has not purchased and downloaded the content.

I'd never purchase Malibu Stacey paraphernalia for my Japanese luchador, but as a full grown man who enjoys playing dress up, do you think it's permissible for them to sell us content already on the disc when it doesn't affect gameplay? Personally I'm not nearly as offended by this as I am by gamerpics or themes, so I simply don't spend my points on these things.

Keep up the good work fellas! CAGcast is the best 'cast on the intarweb.

Hi Cheapy and Wombat,

What do you guys think of the new game, Frontlines: Fuel of War?

Being a big shooter fan i'm quite excited with this game. They claim to have over 60 vehicles, 32 online multiplayer via xbox live with dedicated servers and destructable structures like BF:Bad company. I also heard somewhere that they have a map the size of Saints Row and custom classes like COD4. They also introduced the concept of a frontline where team coordination is needed to push the lines in order to capture control points.

What do you guys think? Is this the COD4 killer or just another shooter with unnecessary features?

btw, you guys rock. CAGcast is the best podcast out there and keep it up guys.

I'll answer these questions for you.

1. You get "ranked" up every several months, and/or by posting on the forums.

2. Don't be a kiss ass; nobody likes a kiss ass.

Hey CheapyD and Wombat, you both have said that you don't think a "hardcore" gamer could survive with a Wii alone. What is your definition of someone who is "hardcore"?

:applause:

4nik8tor, you rock.

I know this isn't a question for CheapyD or Wombat. I wanted to bring this up in the Thread for this cast, but it seems better to use you as an example. I don't think that I could fault you for taking the $35, I can't know what I would do in your situation, but I told myself I would do what you are thinking for the same reasons you stated.

The Mass Effect/Fox News statements, AND the XBOX Live Lawsuit statements that have been made recently would lead me to believe that CheapyD would be against this.

You stated it perfectly that taking this money is effectively supporting censorship. Who was hurt by this? Especially to the tune of $35?

Cheapy and Wombat, do you guys ever read the instruction booklets for games?

I always read the instruction booklets cover to cover before starting the game. I've always felt that it's part of the experience of the game. (I'm probably the only one, aren't I? lol)


I usually read booklets but only when I need to find something out about the game or when I am bored, so your not on your own there.

Besides Megarotic and YouPorn what other porn sites do you frequent? Personally I like the Sex and Fun Forums, tons of free full videos that are easy to get with no spam. Let me know if you want a link, peace (and it is hard to find through google).

My Dearest CheapyD,
I recall on a recent CAGcast you were disheartened about the loss of attorney Phoenix Wright in the Ace Attorney series of games. Perhaps a slight oversight, perhaps you never knew: Phoenix Wright is in the game. Please see link video @ 1:28 for what lead me to this conclusion. Therefore, leading me to believe that this game and the Phoenix Wright games will, in fact, tie into each other. The question is this then: Will you purchase it if Phoenix Wright is in it?

KTHXBAI,

Kind of a technical question but something I have always wondered,

What Brand, model of mics do you use for the podcast?

The vocal clarity always amazes me, and the followup question.

How much are they on average?

Love the CAG cast and everyone should Dig It, I did.

Dear Cheapy and Wombat:

Sony Defense Force is a *dry satire* website. It parodies Sony fanboys, but does so by staying just barely on the side of belivability most of the time.

Then you have posts like this (http://www.sonydefenseforce.com/?p=322) that clearly step over the line and make the satire clear.

So if you wonder why the whole episode seemed to rediculous and over the top and unbelievable, that's because it is.

Look up DNS info. Look at other info. You'll find it's strangely obfuscated. (Its DNS, for example, uses a GoDaddy Proxy.) If it was a real fanboy site, why would thy hide that stuff?

You spent a bunch of time ranting about a post which was, in fact, bait to get you to react. You've been had, son.

Cheers,

Hiro_Antagonist


I don't feel like answering this on the show, but thought I'd just point out that I wasn't referring to that website when I used the term "Sony Defense Force". I was talking about specific posters on CAG.

Cheapy D and Wombat,

With the PS3 now at $399 with Spiderman BluRay, and the Premium 360 at $350 and no games(holiday bundles are mostly sold out), what do you see as the better value at this time. I'm hoping for an xbox price drop soon, but the ps3 is looking like a better deal with wi-fi, blu-ray and free online.

My friends and I have had our gaming time dominated by Rock Band since November. I wanted to get your (Cheapy and Wombat's) take on the new rhythm games that are coming out. With Rock Band and Guitar Hero already out there, and these games on the horizon, are we in for a renissance of games, or is it just going to end up being a bunch of crappy copy cats?

damn I hope i'm not too late...




From what I'm seeing, there's been a new market for game engines with the next gen consoles. With the CryEngine 2 being shown at GDC I was not only excited for Crysis (on ps3/360) but for other games that may get to utilize the engine as well. How do you guys feel about the business of game engines?


Can you guys add a biggest Fanboy CAG award? [for ps3, 360, and Wii]
this year to the CAG awards.. should be fun...


I think that by the time the CAGcast rolls around, I'll be a homeowner, and of course one of the rooms will be used as my gaming/office, so is there any tips you guys could lend in making such a feat happen.

To add to the 'problem with PC Game sales'...

"Steam Tops 15M Users, 158% Sales Growth"

Steam is where a lot of the sales are going. Online game purchasing is real on the PC, and I think, perhaps real on the next generation of consoles.

Hey Cheapy and Wombat, when you were answering my question you were mentioning that you like Tekken bowl on TTT. Just wanted to mention that this is also on Tekken Dark Resurrection for the PSP (I know Cheapy doesn't really play on his PSP but I thought it was worth mentioning). Wombat might like it though and in my opinion is the best Tekken game yet.

Also bought Devil May Cry 4 about 2 hours ago and I think it's awesome, i'm into all of the other games. It only came out today in England so I was pretty happy to get it on the day of release.

Now playing:
:360: Devil May Cry 4
:psp: MGS Portable Ops
