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.









We are going live once again, this time on NowLive.com. Show time is TONIGHT 12/5, at 8pm EST, 5pm PST. Just head right here on Wednesday night to listen in. The chat room will be open for a pre-show chat before the main event.

If you want to maximize your odds of getting your call answered on the show, it is highly recommended that you register at NowLive and add the phone number from which you will be calling from to your profile. See you Wednesday!

Check out some of the wacky offerings at McDonalds in Japan!








Tokyo is not really known for its hamburgers, but check out this beauty!









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!








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.
