Weekend Confirmed 78 - Gears of War 3, TGS '11

By Xav de Matos, Sep 16, 2011 12:00pm PDT

Weekend Confirmed and the 8-4 Podcast have merged into one during the Tokyo Game Show once again! Garnett Lee and the crew at 8-4, Ltd.--behind such games as Shadow of the Damned--discuss their experience in Japan during TGS 2011. Then, Jeff Cannata and Xav de Matos take over from sunny, southern California and talk about Gears of War 3, the nefarious pricing structure of Crimson Alliance, and a handful of other games before ending it all with a few Twitter questions. The US segment was so quick that the WC Crew didn't even have time for Finishing Moves!

  • Is anyone else really interested to see how Steel Battalion turns out? It sounds like it might be the first Kinect game that appeals to a core audience.

    The motion controls are key to playing the game and not an add-on
    The controls are not dumbed down or sloppy to account for the motion control
    The game has a full single player campaign built around a complex game system
    The controls aren't just a controller replacement (like many move games)
    Most importantly it's not a collection of 10 mech mini games.

    The only downside is the game does go back to the regular controller. That's not necessarily bad for the game, just in the context of it being the first core kinect game.

    Also, I'd love if this game could bring back the Battletech style mech game sim game.
