CAG Fund for Child's Play: Win a $500 Amazon Gift Card, Wii, Xbox 360, and much more!

Thought I'd throw out this shameless plug to my friends at Destructoid.

We just started our annual CAG Child's Play fund raiser and we've already hit $6,000 in less than one day. For every $5 donated through our CAG ChipIn system, you will receive one entry into a raffle to win a $500 Amazon Gift Certificate, a Wii, an Xbox 360, or other fabulous prizes! You must donate through the widget on CAG or your raffle entry will not register.

Donations are accepted via PayPal and go directly to Child's Play. ChipIn simply tracks our donations as a group, but the money immediately goes into Child's Play's PayPal account.

Last year we hit $10,000 and this year, with your help, I think we can blow that away.
You can donate, find all the latest prize information (new prizes added all the time) and other details right here.   read

CAGcast & Destructoid Represented in Style at MCV Media Awards UK

Although neither of us won an award, I just wanted to thank CAGcast fan Will for representing us, and the Dtoid UK crew for taking good care of him during and after the awards show.

Check out this email I got from Will:

"I spent most of the night with Jim, Dave and Lauren from Destructoid, after meeting them outside on the pink carpet (no red for us heathens), one of whom was wearing a top hat and tails, with cigarette holder, and another who insisted on dropping his monocle into his glass at every opportunity. That, coupled with free fish and chips and some quality burlesque, made for an excellent night. Mad props go out to the Destructoid guys who made me feel so welcome we were still wandering around the city at 5am, and Eurogamer, who received two very deserved awards."

I can't wait to see some pictures. Monocle = entertainment!   read

Rather than deal with shipping my busted USA Xbox 360 back to the States, I decided to pick up a Japanese Core system. Specifically, this Trusty Bell Premium Pack.

CAGcast Wins Gaming Podcast Award and is Generally Awesome

Dear Ron,

Remember when I let you touch my wiener at E3 in exchange for a plug on Destructoid? I've decided to use my ill-gotten spoils to hawk our CAGcast video game podcast.

On this week's show, I give an update on Cheap Ass Gamer's legal issues with Circuit City (at the 14:08 mark) and boast about our ass-kicking victory at the Podcast Awards. We also tell you how to mix your own batch of fish tranquilizers from ordinary household cleaning products. There may also be some gaming-related discussion, but I guarantee nothing.

Aural orgasm can be can achieved by streaming the CAGcast via our episode page on CAG or by using the links below:

Xbox 360 Towel Trick vs. CheapyD

We all know about the 3 year warranty, but perhaps you have a fear of cardboard boxes. Maybe you live in Japan and have a broken USA Xbox 360 and international shipping would be cost prohibitive. This technique could keep your 360 going until the new HDMI 65nm models have saturated retail. It could also burn your house down.
Over 100,000 asses rocked on YouTube...your ass is next. Bend over!
