Weekend Confirmed Episode 7

By Garnett Lee, May 07, 2010 12:00pm PDT Alan Wake reviews hit the Net and we've got our spoiler-free full impressions to kickoff Whatcha Been Playin? Garnett, Brian, Jeff, and yes, Billy also got more time with the Halo:Reach beta, FIFA World Cup, Skate 3 multiplayer, and more. Plus they've got four and a bonus pick for Cannata-ford a New Game this week. DRM schemes, balancing game difficulty, and whether we want any of this Facebook social network fu in our games challenges the group in Four Minute. And the show winds up with a Front Page full of news including the announcement of Call of Duty: Black Ops for this fall, the winner of the million dollar MLB2K10 pitch a perfect game challenge, and a release date for Starcraft 2.

  • I think the only FIFA to fill the quota you guys were talking about is FIFA 98 Road to the World Cup, that game is really awesome, it let you go through the qualifier with your national team AND THEN play the whole World Cup with it.

    It's a shame that same year EA started with the franchise milking in the current way it does and RtWC is a rarity that no longer works unless you have Windows 98 (YMMV, might work on XP if you're lucky), but iirc, there's still a strong community supporting it, releasing a new D3D/Glide (yes, Glide!) renderer and the common team roster update packs.
