Whatever happened to the Friday night Live show on NowLive you thought about doing? Did Tai shit all over that idea because I think having Tai as a guest host would be kind of funny.
You wouldn't have to splice all the phone calls together or anything, just do a show like your black friday deal show. Oh and Wombat can join in too...

:P (I kid Wombat because I care)

Hey cheapy and wombat,

I just saw Cheapy's interview in BBC-asia regarding the stituation of the format wars. The thing that bothered me is that there was no mention of cheapassgamer.com. The BBC guys simply said "Thats David Abrams of CAGcast japan"(something like that). It could have been a big plug to the site and the podcast. Of course BBC would never want the word ASS flashed on their screen.

Did you ever think of making changes, so that cheapassgamer.com would be more accepted in mainstream media? maybe using other links like cagcast.com or cheapyd.com . I'm sure that you'll have more interviews like this and it would be great if you can capitalize on the exposure.

Cheapy and Wombat,

I've only been listening to the CAGCast for several episodes, starting with 104. Now this may have been discussed before, but I just want to know how did Cheapy and Wombat meet? Did you guys go to school or work together since you both lived in NYC? And where in NYC did you guys live?

I don't live in "the city" (Manhattan) but frequent there for my part-time job and to meet up with friends (we live in the other boroughs >_>). I'll be sure to keep an eye out for any "Wombat Sightings" too.

Can pickup official Nintendo merch (clothing, import stuff, PLUSHIES, etc) from Nintendo World Store in NYC with shopping bag.


Interested in art/craft supplies including stuff to customize amiibo?  PM if interested!

Hey guys,

Lost: Via Domus is coming out soon (2/26) and I'm really surprised at the pricing model they've adopted. PS3 and 360 versions of the game are $60, while the PC version is only half as much at $30. The game is a single-player only experience, so aside from getting to sit on the couch, what's the advantage of going with the console versions? As a CAG who games on console and PC, I know I'm going for the PC version just to save the money.

Any thoughts on this deviation from the standard $50 PC / $60 PS3 / $60 360 model in favor of "bargain" pricing on the PC? Why not go bargain across the board?

Hey CheapyD,

On the most recent CAG episode you talked about Dark Messiah and how they had downloadable content on the market place prior to the games release. This got me thinking... we know game developers tend to run behind schedule and the first release dates we hear are frequently pushed back. My question is this: If a game developer is approaching their deadline and doesn't have some parts of a game finished, do you think they would make the decision to leave those parts out of the game and release them as DLC, rather than push the entire games release date back? I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

HEY Cheapy, Do you think there could be something big coming from Microsoft being that most of the Xbox 360 SKU's seems to be sold out currently, implying a possible shift in production. What do you make of the possibility of a new SKU(s) being announced at GDC??

Hey Cheapy, without Cheap Ass Gamer do you think that you would be as much of a gamer as you are or will your gaming addiction always be the same. Also would Wombat's gaming habit's be as bad as they are without his part in CAG and UGO.

Cheapy and Wombat,

Which movies or general franchises would you like to see get the Lego treatment, such as Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Robocop is not an answer.

Did you ever think of making changes, so that cheapassgamer.com would be more accepted in mainstream media? maybe using other sites like cagcast.com or cheapyd.com which provides links to the site. I'm sure that you'll have more interviews like this and it would be great if you can capitalize on the exposure.

This question came up a bunch of casts ago. Turns out CAG.com is taken by some multi-national corporation or what not. CheapyD ran into this problem before which is why he uses the alt 'CheapGamer.com" which redirects here.

Cheapy and Wombat,

Recently, the "PC Gaming is dead" arguement has come out of the closet and is rearing its ugly head around town. Have you guys played any PC games recently and do you agree with the statement.

While I believe that it is not the superior force that it once was, I think that it is far from dead. I think people tend to realize that the European market is still a huge place for PC gaming. Even Crysis which sold below expectations here, sold huge in Europe, and was pushed above one million units according to an Electronic Arts financial call recently.

Cheapy and Wombat, now that the DVD format war is officially over what are you going to do about movies? Will you be switching to just Blu-ray or buying regular DVDs? I myself have well over 250 movies and can't justify buying them again on Blu-ray, what say you?

Hey Cheapy!
If apple were to get into the gaming market do you think you would be picking up there system considering how big of a microsoft fanboy you are?? They have some good launch titles and it costs as much as the new XBOX.

Random question, but, is there a way to legitimately shuffle your Ipod while listening to it via your xbox 360? Like, as background music during games. I can shuffle it, but it always plays in the exact same "shuffled" order ._.

Hey Cheapy, I remember reading a snippit in Playboy saying that Japanese ladies are getting bigger asses and titties becasue of more westernized fatty diets. Is this something you have noticed since living there?

Hey CheapyD.

I listened to a recent podcast of yours with Wombat. You mentioned your wonder about how Kotaku gets more Web Traffic than the much higher maintenance 1up.com. Basically you said that it surprised you that a site that barely paid significant salaries to its workers was beating out 1up.

Well your comment made me think what follows, and I would like to know what you think:

1. People only go to Kotaku to get the latest in gaming news, and little else, as it is one of the fastest sites to get the news. Thus the high traffic. But they split themselves up amongst the sites they like for content relating to games: Game reviews, retrospectives, and features. Hence, why 1up is below Kotaku. IGN beats out Kotaku only because of its higher Google presence, and its larger variety of content (not only gaming related subsections).

2. Advertisers pay more for their advertisements on 1up than Kotaku as the audience is much more diverse and desirable on 1up than on Kotaku. Also, the advertisements are much more well done than on Kotaku.

3. 1up is also a print publication, with a web side component, and thus it offers once again a more attractive advertising (print and online) package for its sponsors, and thus its ability to pay its staff.

Hey Cheapy and Wombat

I love my video games and take them seriously hoping to compete in the future. i really look foward to playing people who are good competition but recently i find that alot of people dont make clans to be competitive they just make the for fun. this isnt that bad. the thing that bothers me is when someone puts Mlg infront of there name and sends you a pm saying there a free agent and they do horribly in the game. have you ever experienced this?

also theres been alot of hate towards Cheapy as of late. i would like to say that i think you are doing an amazing job and that i have noticed nothing but perfection from your performence.

keep up the good work

Cheapy and Wombat,
What religion are you oriented too? Do you go to church or participate in whatever weekly celebrations are held in other religions besides Christianity? Will your views on things change since you now have a son? Thanks

Hey Cheapy and Wombat, as always love the PodCast!

And thanks for answering my last question!

I was just wondering if we're going to be seeing more of the "Lunch with CheapyD" video's, I thought they were pretty cool. Particularly the one with Pepsi Ice Cucumber...

Hey Cheapy and Wombat,
What is the most satisfying achievement you have unlocked?
Also, what happened to the Hype Wagon? I'd like to hear what you guys are hyped about after GDC.

Do you guys think that Sony's free cross platform PyhreEngine will be more beneficial to Sony or MS?

Do you think that blu ray winning the format war and have all major studios commit to blu ray this month will have an effect on PS3 sales for the month of Februrary

hey Wombat, what's your impression of Super Smash Bros Brawl? (This is my followup question to last week's SSBB question.)

Btw Cheapy and Wombat, what recent movies and TV shows have you watched and what do you recommend or don't recommend to the CAGs?

Cheapy D, Wombat included, I highly recommend picking up Sid Meier's Pirates! off the Live Marketplace. It's one of the few (if only) Xbox Original downloads that is cheaper than in retail form, if you're lucky to even find it. At $15 you are guaranteed a simple, addicting, and throughly enjoyable game that will entertain for multiple playthroughs. Just ask Mrs. Shipwreck, as she comments lengthily about the game in the most recent CAG Foreplay.

As for the spat with IGN, Cheapy would you please take a look at a recent suggestion from Esquire magazine that I have scanned for you and take its advice:
