Your Cheapness,

Great call on calling out 1up.com about them stealing guides from other sites (i.e. "their" DOA 4 guide) and about the questionable SpikeTV ads and editorial piece. that happened to run at the same time..karma 'aint she a bitch (you would think if Jason Lee would learn - i.e. see My Name is Earl)

And WTF Wombat telling you to calm down...you think Wombat would realize by now (after all the intros to the show) that you are the host and he is just a guest or sidekick - look how successful Andy was after he left Conan, or Simon and that Garfunkelwlslflhgs guy was after he left...some people just don't know their place (ZING!)

But now to the Q - to what extent, and in what manner do you think that game mags and websites should cover games...should they cover this field more as journalism or more in a 'hip, cool, MTVish' or what not style, while possibly putting true objective thoughts and reviews out the window? Do you think that as gamers grow older there is a market for a real journalism mag or site about gaming, the business and the industry as a whole?

Don't feel bad Wombat. CheapyD and the others are just teasing you.

Wombat - please know that I was just joking (or as that telemundo-esque host character from SNL, whose name I can't think of, would say) - I am just keeeding!

I actually really like your jokes and views and feel the show would not be the same w/o both of you.

But I guess I should ask another Q to make this on topic - here is one for Wombat then - will you buy a DS Lite? What are your thoughts on the DS Lite, and do you guys still think that a black Metriod bundle may come out soon...if it was a black DS Lite w/Hunters I may need to pick up another DS....

Feel like adding a bit to my last post.

With the newly mentioned Multiplayer functions (Nintendonow.com is where I saw it) of Metroid Prime Hunters how likely is it that the Big N will develop at least some X-box Live type features for there own Wi-fi Connection. With the Voice chat demo, Rumble pack, and new redesign we know that there constantly experimenting with the DS so how likely do you think it is.

How about stashing some CAG related nuggets in the CAGcasts for us listening faithful- something that all the other scrubs would miss since they don't let your words make sweet love to their ears like we do?

And a Question:

Dearest Cheapy and Wombat: How old are the two of you? Any Cheapkids for either of you? If not, how soon until you can exclaim 'My boys can swim!' and you unleash one of your spawn on the earth?

Edit: I'm downloading 17 right now so if you've answered those questions in that one, well, I must be psychic.

Do you feel that bad movies based on video games hurt the industry as a whole? Does it make the non-gaming/movie going community less willing to accept video games as a legitimate part of the entertainment industry?

I will ask my question in a Stewie Griffin's Compliment Sandwich style. First a compliment then an area of improvement followed by another compliment and then my real question:

Something positive...something positive... Oh. Wombat looks like a Care Bear and it makes me smile.

Something negative. You have smelly Wombat farts.

Something positive...You really wowed those guys from Chatterbox."

Now my real question: Wombat, why do you keep your Xbox 360 when you sold your PSP for the same sort of reasons like lack of games or etc? I know you paid a hefty price tag but the PSP wasn't that cheap either it feels like you give the 360 more of a chance but doesn't make sense without the quality titles or graphics.

Here's my question:

Would you like to sign up for our 12 month gamestop membership? It saves you money when you buy used games. 10% off of used games. So do you want to sign up? Are you sure I mean it would save you a lot of money. You must not like saving money *snickers*. Did you want to reserve anything today? Are you sure you don't want to reserve anything today? How about the new madden 07, I mean you MUST like madden. YOU DON'T LIKE MADDEN?? Ok...well do you want to reserve kingdom hearts 2? It's only 5 dollars down. You can change it to a different game if you decide you don't want kingdom hearts. You're really sure you don't want to reserve anything?? I did tell you it's ONLY 5 dollars to reserve a game didn't I? Alright well did you decide whether or not you wanted to subscribe to Game Informer? Normally it would cost you 15 dollars but with the money you save today it would only be....14.88. So did you want that subscription? No??? Well...Ok....So you do want to reserve Zelda right? Everyone likes Zelda....Did you just tell me to go Fuck myself??

Overall 360 had a better launch then any recent system. I have played Perfect Dark, Kameo, Condemed, and DOA 4 at a friends house/ at a store and there better then anything on any other system at launch. Even Halo. I mean for a pc FPS fan Halo was fun don't get me wrong, but not the be all and all some make it out to be.

Are either of you planning to attend E3? And what do you think of E3's banning of booth babes?

EDIT: I just saw that Daphatty posted my same question, so I'll ask another (few):

What do you think of the new Black Cherry Vanilla Coke?
What is the cost of living in Japan like vs. the cost of living in the U.S.?
Do you have any insider friends in the game development industry who would be willing to make a game about a large, bald white guy who runs a website and moves to Japan only to end up in all sorts of misadventures?

Regarding the future of the PSP-

I get the feeling that it needs strong games, now. You could argue that with the rise of video-playback capable mp3 devices (video Ipod, Zen vision:m, etc), the PSP's video/music functionality will no longer draw in potential buyers; why pay $250 for a system plus around $70-$100 for one gig of memory when a 30 gig Ipod video costs $300?

With this in mind, is 2006 the year for the PSP to rise to its potential as the most technologically impressive handheld GAMING system currently out, or do you guys feel that it will fade into obscurity behind the DS's (thus far) stronger software lineup?

What game 'started it all' for your gaming hobby or what game do you look back on most fondly as one of your greatest gaming experiences?

How about the comments from Japan store owners and a few sites around saying that the DS lite looks like an Ipod and at least as cool as the PSP?

Overall all I know is all I do is load Tivo shows on the PSP and watch them on the go. And on the ds I play puzzle, Mario Kart, and Castlevania all the time. And as soon as I beat AW 2 with all S rank i'll pop open Duel strike and play that all the time.

If some of the PSP rpg ports have new content or retail for a reasonable price 20-30 dollars then those will be picked up. Those games are so much nicer on the go.


CHEAPYD and WOMBAT That new $50 battery extender for psp that adds 6 or so more hours of battery life on psp mean that a PSP re-release is coming some time this year. Or at least a new battery that you can buy seperatly that doesn't suck.

Cheapy,

To what do we owe your semi-frequent on-air belching? Do you perhaps enjoy a Pre-CAGcast Cheapy D..octor Pepper?

Cheapy + Wombat,

What do you feel is the most pressing concern facing the game industry today? Also, do you think there is anything that could possibly make you quit gaming altogether?

Not a question as much as a clarification on using gift cards on EBgames' site. You can only use a gift card online if the card has a pin number on the back. I know this b/c I have a $50 card with no pin number that is useless for me.

I want to use CAG15, Edge, Saver, and my gift card you EB mofos!

Check out the thread in my info and maybe you can get some info from that. The DS Lite should be a hot topic and the poll I'm having with it is at least moderatley interesting. Check it out and vote for your favorite colors of choice!

To extend this questions - have you ever seen a wombat in person? They don't seem to be either "wombs" (huh?) or "bats." Sorta like pigs but more boxy. And furry. So maybe not like pigs at all. Nevermind.

If I'm not mistaken, Wombat came back from DW last week! Where the hell are my CAGCASTS?!?!?! :P


Speaking of franchises (CC#16), where do you guys think SEGA went wrong when making the jump from 2D to 3D for the Sonic franchise? The Sonic series is among my favorite of all time but I feel there is "something" missing from the 3D editions. Comments?

Do you think Sony will release a PSPea (or PSPee), meaning a smaller, "sexier" (if possible) version of the PSP?
It has happened with their past 2 consoles and has been highly successful for Nintendo handhelds.
