Weekend Confirmed Episode 62

While the Jeff is away, Andrew Pfister, Christian Spicer, Xav, and Garnett play, and take a few more swipes at Cougar Town. But this is no wine-sipping sitcom; we crack open a couple beers and dig in to games, like LA Noire, Modern Warfare 3, BioShock Infinite, From Dust, Bastion, and more. In the warning we return with more of our and some of your moments that stand out as game-changers for videogaming. And we bring it all home with this week's news and Finishing Moves.

  • Don't know if it's too late to bring up this for the show, but you all probably know now that EGM has finally launched on the iPad (along with a lot of other magazines recently it seems). You also now have Atomix on the scene.

    After checking it out, I think I'm done with print. I'm sorry, but it's over. Do you guys think all or most game magazines should make this transition?

    With the next update EGM even says that we'll be getting digital versions identical to the print editions. We're still getting print's main advantage over online - the periodic edition format that gives editors time for stronger stories. Now it's just on a portable electronic device that also allows for integration with other media.

    I know I would be more likely to subscribe to the likes of GamePro, the new 1up Presents, Killscreen, and others if they made the same transition.

    • I feel that even though print magazines started seeing declining sales, there's was still a market for it (albeit much smaller), much like newspapers. Essentially online versus print, with online you got your information faster and more bite sized (and free), which I feel was the main attraction. However with print, even though the information was less 'instant', it made for higher quality reading materials in terms of depth and insight.

      Now that tablet computers and mobile online devices are much more common, print publications can now evolve to incorporate the best of both worlds. I still like reading print magazines more than reading on a screen, but devices like the iPad gives a good compromise between the two.

      Plus whatever medium Seanbaby appears on, I will be happy to follow :o)

      Which by the way... he would make an awesome guest to have on at least once :oD
