Weekend Confirmed 71 - ComiCon, From Dust, NCAA Football

Jeff Cannata and Christian Spicer numbered among the crowds that descended on ComicCon last week. They tell Garnett and "Indie" Jeff a few tales from their adventure to start the show off. The opening segment concludes with a little more about Bastion, including a few spoilers in discussion of its ending. The rest of Whatcha Been Playin moves on to hit From Dust, NCAA Football, and Jeff's indie picks including It Belongs in an Ancient Ruin! The conversation continues with a look at whether gamers want familiar games or revolutionary change and when enough is enough with a frustrating title. In the news the big price cut on the 3DS ignites a conversation about the future for handheld gaming. And we wrap it all up with Finishing Moves.
