Weekend Confirmed #130

Another month another episode of “Weekend Confirmed!”

LISTEN HERE!

On the docket this week are a number of topics surrounding the recent Wii U launch announcements, including some debate about pricing, the strength of its launch title lineup, and who Nintendo is courting as the console’s core audience. Developer Klei’s Mark of the Ninja gets some universal admiration from the crew, as well. We pull everything together with some early impressions of Borderlands 2 and, of course, Finishing Moves.

I want to add that my early impressions of Borderlands 2 are just that, early impressions. After playing more and reflecting, there is MUCH more for me to say about the game and I intend to do so including boss fights, inventory management, and difficulty scaling…but that is for another time.

Weekend Confirmed #120: Skyrim Dawnguard, Day-Z, Diablo III, and more!

Despite the summer’s dearth of new releases, the Weekend Confirmed crew get into some spirited discussions about Diablo 3’s questionable end-game, and what it’s like to be a vampire in Skyrim‘s new expansion, Dawnguard. Garnett, Jeff Cannata and Jeff Mattas,and regular guest Andrea Rene also delve into some talk about the Day-Z beta mod that brings hardcore zombie survival to ArmA 2, and opine a bit about ZombiU and Sim City Social as well. The eclectic mix of topics all wraps up with another batch of Finishing Moves.

Weekend Confirmed 114 – Diablo 3, Max Payne 3, Lost Planet 3

Listen here!

Diablo 3 has strengthened its hold on Jeff Cannata who really only wants to talk about his barbarian, but there’s so much more to cover. Garnett returns to the driver’s seat after spending last week getting a sneak peek at some of the big games ready to vie for the spotlight at E3. “Indie” Jeff and Andrea Rene complete the adventuring party that gets down to business discussing their varying degree of anticipation for E3, the demise of 38 Studios, and the plight of subscription model MMOs, whether Max Payne 3 actually improves the gunplay over previous Rockstar open world games, and a handful of other games including Lost Planet 3 and Rock Band Blitz. Put a bird on it with Finishing Moves and you’ve got one massive show to take along on the Memorial Day weekend.
