Weekend Confirmed 75 - Deus Ex Human Revolution, Street Fighter 3: Third Strike

By Garnett Lee, Aug 26, 2011 11:00am PDT

Deus Ex Human Revolution made its hotly anticipated debut this week and everyone's been playing it. But don't think Weekend Confirmed would spoil the game for you! Xav, Jeff, and Garnett along with regular guest Christian Spicer spend the first segment of Whatcha Been Playin? talking about their experience with the game, and how it struck them from a variety of perspectives. There's sure to be more to come on this one, but there are other games this week as well, like Street Fighter 3: Third Strike and Madden NFL 12. The Warning begins with a blog posted by a game designer in response to Garnett's Diablo 3 complaints, and then moves on to a discussion of the importance of replayability in modern games. Xav leads the debate through a full new segment. There's Finishing Moves, and then, the first NFL Tailgate of the year. It's a jam-packed show.

  • So is the live show going to be broadcast live over the Internet or just live if you are there and the rest of us have to wait until next weekend?

    I do have a question I want to leave for the show as well. I don't know if this is the right place or not so forgive me if I'm putting this in the wrong spot. Here it is.

    Earlier this week I noticed a friend of mine on Live had a Voltron costume for his Avatar. I loved Voltron when I was a kid and was excited to see this thinking it meant that there was a Voltron game coming out soon. As it turns out there is one releasing in October (I think). I watched the trailer and some other videos the developer has released and I have to say the game looks awful. However I am still excited for the game to come out and will eagerly pay my 1200 msp or whatever it cost on day one. And I will enjoy what I'm sure will be horrible controls, voice acting, animation, and story as much as if it were a big budget AAA title that would receive review scores in the 9-10 range. So my question to you guys (and lady if Andrea is on the show) is. Has there ever been a game that you just knew was going to be horrible for whatever reason, but you knew you were still going to pay good money for it and enjoy playing?
    Thanks for reading my question. Love the show and keep up the great work.
