Weekend Confirmed Episode 16

By Garnett Lee, Jul 09, 2010 12:00pm PDT Everybody's been playing Crackdown 2 but from the sounds of it they won't be much longer. San Diego-based comic Christian Spicer adds his voice to the disappointment Garnett, Brian, and Jeff express over the sequel. But it fares better than Deadly Premonition did with Jeff. Not to worry, ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead and DeathSpank help Whatcha Been Playin finish strong. A trio of awesome strategy games perfect for a long summer's playcation fills out this week's Cannata-ford a New Game. Your comments on 3DS pricing and requiring a complete game one save to play White Knight Chronicles 2 kicks off the Warning before getting to topics like what makes an MMO good and the viability of an honor system difficulty mechanic in open world games. Brian brings it home in the Front Page with news including the announcement of Dragon Age 2, four DLC packs coming for Red Dead Redemption, E3 Game Critics Awards winners, and more.

  • Just wanted to throw out some appreciation to you guys:

    Garnett, I've been listening to you for *looks at calendar* HOLY SHIT, ALMOST FIVE YEARS! Listening to 1UP Yours/Listen UP and now Weekend Confirmed have brought me happiness during times I've been down, and your shows have, in a way, been the soundtrack to the beginning of my adult life. Through rainy dog walks, arduous commutes, late night walks around campus, and even post-breakup depression, you and the great community of co-hosts you've worked with over the years have always been there to take my mind off the more serious facets of every-day life. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the podcasts.

    Weekend Confirmed has been phenomenal so far, and I think it really captures the magic you had with the classic 1UP Yours crew. Jeff -- your Deadly Premonition rant nearly had me in tears; I LOVE your passion. Keep up the great work.

    Thanks for the good times,

    Joe S.
