Weekend Confirmed Episode 4

By Brian Leahy, Apr 16, 2010 12:44pm PDT Garnett Lee is away on business, but Brian and Jeff are back to hold down the fort. Joining them, once again, is Billy Berghammer as the group discusses Splinter Cell: Conviction in Whatcha Been Playin? After that, the gang plays catch-up on some games from earlier in 2010 including Darksiders and Final Fantasy XIII. Halo 2 gets its time in the spotlight in "Forgotten Favorites" or "Cannata-ford a New Game". The Front Page is busy this week with a pair of game reveals from Epic, an X-COM "re-imagining" from 2K, and the latest on the Infinity Ward vs. Activision drama.

  • -Great show, guys. I liked the part where the two of you were trying to convince the other one of you about monster hunter being awesome at some point.

    -For some strange reason I love both the moderator's and the "guy from shacknews" 's voice.

    -I don't like the "points" part because even if they come with good answers it becomes a competition to please the moderator and that's kind of uncomfortable, i think that, as an alternative the guys could discuss one of these topics and host would just come with a global opinion, without the points.

    -As you may know by my comment, I haven't memorized the names yet but a photo or even an avatar would work pretty well maybe you could put it in each weeks logo for the show or here in the Shack post.

    -And on a last note, are you guys going to do contests of some sort?

    Thank you very much for the show and for the love of god, someone give that guy a job!
    hear ya next week :)

  • Wave Race is one of the greatest games ever made. After that game came out, it was the only game I played for months. I'd pick up other games, play for about twenty minutes, and think, "What am I doing? I could be playing Wave Race right now." It's one of those games that seems very simple on the surface, but it keeps drawing you back in. It may actually be my all time favorite N64 game. (It holds up better in 2010 than GoldenEye does)

    I am more than a little excited to hear that somebody else shares my feelings on this game. It may not seem as deep as a lot of other racing games out there, but it's a lot of fun to play and it never gets old. Thanks for showing some love for one of the most criminally underrated games all of time. I'm glad it's on the Wii so that people will have a chance to rediscover it. I still play it on my N64, so, I'm also a bit of a Wave Race purist. As excited as I would be for a current-gen version, the idea of one kind of scares me a bit. Don't mess with perfection. I feel kinda silly saying that about a jet-ski racing game, but it really is a superb game. Check it out, if you haven't.
