Weekend Confirmed Episode 59

By Garnett Lee, May 06, 2011 11:00am PDT

By popular request, Weekend Confirmed takes on all of Portal 2 in the opening segment. Though the conversation covers much of the game in feel and concept, there are spoilers. So for those wanting to avoid them, skip forward to the start of the second segment at the 32 minute mark. And there's still plenty of great stuff to come from there like Child of Eden, Outland, Thor, our new "knockout" game, how Sony could tackle E3, the top news stories of the week, and Finishing Moves to top it all off.

Adam K dropped some amazing progressive house on this week with "Wake Up (Morgan Page Remix)." It's one of four remixes you can checkout on his Hotbox Digital site (and I strongly recommend you do, particularly the Adam K and Soha version). Today's track can be purchased from both iTunes and Beatport. For more from the awesome Adam K check out his official site and Facebook page and Hotbox Digital.

Please help support Weekend Confirmed engineer extraordinaire Brooklyn Fraser in her charity ride as part of the AIDS/Lifecycle. She'll be biking from San Francisco to Los Angeles, riding some 545 miles over seven days in support of the cause. To make the ride, she needs to hit a donation goal of $3000. If you can, please help her make that goal and be able to ride by making a donation on her AIDS/Lifecycle page and, of course, your charitable donation will be tax deductible as well.

  • Hey Zav!

    Amen brother! A-friggen-men! I completely feel your pain. I lived and worked in America for three years as a legal resident soon found out my Australian XBL account was useless there. Everything from buying a MS Points card from Walmart to the code for a bonus map pack that comes with a brand new game is region locked!

    Sure enough, the masterminds at xbox support had the same advice for me; make a new account. So, I made another account called Xbox In America which was a silver account made purely for redeeming codes and MS Points and so forth. The problem is that whilst the content I purchased/redeemed was licensed to the xbox on which is was initiated (ah wonderful DRM) it created so many headaches when I replaced my console because of either RROD or upgrading when undergoing the license transer process that requires you to re-download every piece of content.
    This lead to me keeping a piece of paper with my xbox that lists all of the different content purchased for each gamertag.

    It's a HUGE hassle and although I'm back in my homeland, to this day I still have to keep that second American account along with the login details and password and hard copy lists of purchased content all because of the lack of ability to do something as simple as switch regions.
