  1. First!

    Only 1:13, what’s up with the short-bus ‘cast?

  2. Ho shit, Adam’s back?!? No freakin’ way!

  3. Whats up with Deagle’s voice? Did he take a “how to talk on the radio” class. It sounds way different.

  4. Firebrand’s in the background but where the hell is NOLA and Samurage?

  5. Yeah, TideGear!!!!

  6. This just made my weekend.

    BTW- Deagle, you sound alot better on this show.

  7. I didn’t even recognize Desert at the beginning of the show.

    You should host more dude! Good energy.

  8. No NOLA? I’m out. I love the grumpiness he brings.

  9. Punch ’em in the eye and let em know where you’re from!

    Downloading now.

  10. I forgot how good the Deagle/Tide casts were. They’re the Dream Team in my book.

  11. Woah, I get a shoutout! Thanks, guys.

  12. JessicaSimpsonisHavingmyBaby

    It’s not up on iTunes yet. 🙁

  13. I’m hoping for some Guitar Hero RIP moments.

  14. Yeah, it doesn’t sound like him at all.

    Tide’s laugh is great as always. I missed it.

  15. Wow, this show sounds good. Higher bitrate?

  16. Hey guys, I’m think of doing a comic/game/tabletop podcast. Can you give me any pointer on how to start out? How about getting listeners?

  17. That guy needs to be the tail end of a human centipede for a month or so.

  18. Um, except for Fortix, you already reviewed those game, Desert. How about talking about the new stuff?

  19. So Adam isn’t gone after all?

    Please come back next week!!!!

  20. No Sage?

  27. Need her sensei? Really? What kind of martial arts do you study?

  28. What is that?

  29. Ah, to be young and in love again.

  30. I always liked it, karnov returns, looks like an interesting beat-em-up, and karnov’s fire attack certainly looks cool!

  31. Nice art work!

  32. Great show. Its was like when Shane returns to Weekend Confirmed.

  33. Thanks for the contests, TideGear- now I have to sign up for Twitter, tho.

  34. Good show this week. I also vote for Deagle to be the new host.

  35. I should have wrote the contest phrases down. Now I have to listen twice.

  36. Don’t let the haters get to you, NOLA.

    There’s some of us who appreciate a stance that’s far removed from the average fanboy regurgitation.

  37. Downloading much faster this week. I guess you guys got a better server and equipment. Woohoo.

  38. Best show in a long time. Keep TideGear coming back!

  39. TideGear - Adam Milecki

    -Fallout: New Vegas > “War never changes.”
    -Bioshock > “Would you kindly.”
    -Half-Life 2 > “Wake up and smell the ashes.”

  40. You the man!

  41. I agree with you!

  42. Fourth’ed.

  43. Pretty good show considering it was only two people this week.

  44. Where the interviews? I miss those!

  45. I hope Karnov is back for good. His indie knowledge is unmatched.

  46. TideGear - Adam Milecki

    Man, y’all are too nice! I love it.

  47. We love you! You really add something to the show.

  48. is….is….is that a giant steaming pile of shit?

  49. no, its a visual representation of Destructoid.

  50. you mean IGN, right? Well, D-toid is probably pretty bad still, I just haven’t looked in years.

  51. So, you back for good? Or are you just bettenhousin’?

  52. Good show this week, well I would have liked an interview.

  53. What did Deagle do to make his voice golden?

  54. Adam Milecki - TideGear

    I can’t be back consistently, but I love Tech-Gaming, and I’ll try to be on whenever possible!

  55. Cool. Make it happen with the indie goodness every few weeks!

  56. I really appreciate your professional approach. These are pieces of very useful information that will be of great use for me in future.

  57. Just heard the last CAGcast- they did know Adams name, called NOLA a minion, and raved about Deagle. Why does CheapyD love him so?

  58. Ha! I’ll have to listen!

  59. Just heard right now. Everybody loves the Deagle and the HipHop Gamer it seems.

  60. Correction. Deagle is tolerated and HHG is hated.
