Summer has arrived and Weekend Confirmed is ready to take it on with "Indie" Jeff Mattas joining Jeff and Garnett along with special guest Billy Berghammer. They start the show in Whatcha Been Playin? with a quick second look Shadows of the Damned, a first take on Dungeon Siege III, and Billy's playthrough of Ocarina of Time on the 3DS. Jeff brings a smorgasbord of indie games including Frozen Synapse, Jamestown, and Atom Zombie Smasher. The group moves on to discuss whether "community" in games can evolve beyond badges and stat keeping. And in the news the talk turns to the landmark Supreme Court ruling and World of Warcraft going free-to-play--or has it--before wrapping things up with Finishing Moves.

Comments

  • Thanks for taking my comment. I liked where the discussion went because it touched on alot of thoughts i have on the issue. Sites like playfire (facebook for gamers, check it out) have made an effort to provide a place for gamers to meet up, but I am with Garnett and think that we need some
    in-game solutions to this problem. Halo's preference system has been talked about here, and MH Silver made a good point about ranked/ unranked lobbies. If there are 10 million playing COD BLOPS why aren't there 4 different lobbies for each game type?
    Team Death Match
    -no voice chat- competitive- k/d over .7
    -voice chat-competitive- friendly
    - voice chat- social- friendly
    -troll/ racial slur room
    this needs to be moderated with a way to report if a player need to be diposed to the troll lobby. I would be way more excited for MW3 if they were talking about a feature like this rather than another on rails campaign
