Weekend Confirmed Episode 22

By Garnett Lee, Aug 20, 2010 12:00pm PDT This weekend gets confirmed with a powerful show that rocks from start to finish. Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, Lara Croft: Guardian of Light, Monday Night Combat, and a QuakeCon report get the party started on the right foot in Whatcha' Been Playin? Your thoughts on maturity in games and balancing difficulty with reward lead off the Warning before the question of whether it's okay to leave games unfinished finally gets discussed. Gamecom announcements alone could fill the Front Page but there's also a quick review of the July NPD sales figures and, of course, Jeff tops it off with a little excitement for Bioshock Infinite.

  • On the topic of talking about games at work (or in my case, school) I generally list games in the middle of my interests. I really couldn't care less is someone at school learned that I've spent that last week putting over 70 hours into Monday Night Combat, but I don't want to be judged by the fact right off the bat. I usually tell people, when asked, "I like to read, write, play videogames, listen to music, talk to my friends," etc. Casually dropping the "play videogames," like a more casual gamer might.

    When it comes to going out instead of staying in, I don't see why it should be more socially acceptable to go to parties and get wasted, and possibly laid, instead of just hanging out and chatting with people in IRC and LIVE.
