Weekend Confirmed 66 - FEAR 3, Shadows of the Damned

By Garnett Lee, Jun 24, 2011 11:00am PDT

Settling in to summer, the Weekend Confirmed crew finds a stack of great games waiting to be played. Christian Spicer sits in with Xav, Jeff, and Garnett to talk F.E.A.R. 3, Shadows of the Damned, inFamous 2, Trenched, and more in Whatcha' Been Playin? The Warning gets started with a continuation of a discussion that started on twitter about whether names like Mizuguchi, Suda, Mikami, and Yamaoka generate big buzz. The group also looks at all the other big games hitting their 10th anniversary along with Halo and realizes 2001 was a pretty special year. The news and Finishing Moves bring it all home.

  • loving the fact that every week, you guys talk a little more about F1 and grand prix racing...apologies for the shameless plug coming up (all shackers get 10% at my official F1 Store at Formula1.com (http://f1store.formula1.com) - just enter "Confirmed" at the checkout page).

    with that done, just wanted to bring up a question. where do you guys stand on the effectiveness of the current rating system?

    i know it's a topic that's been discussed previously, but this morning i saw a kid who couldn't have been older than 10 buying a used copy of Gears of War 2. the guy at the store didn't question his age or ask his mother (are you aware that this game carries a mature rating) or anything.

    i mean, i understand that it' may just be a case of bad parenting, and the store clerk would've been instructed to make the sale , but what's the point of the age rating system is nobody's gives a second thought?

    i don't think that violent video game = violent kid, i think it's just the kid may not appreciate everything the designer was intending their audience to see being so young...it just irked me seeing that today.

    great show as always, i love you guys
