Weekend Confirmed 83 - Batman: Arkham City, Forza 4, Skyrim

By Garnett Lee, Oct 21, 2011 11:00am PDT

Like millions of gamers, the Weekend Confirmed crew jumped all over Batman: Arkham City when it came out this week. There's an abundance of love for the game, but Garnett does take exception to the move that put Catwoman out of the reach of gamers without an Internet connection. Along with the two Jeffs--Cannata and "Indie"--and with our second Play For Japan charity auction winner, Eric Hwang, they're just getting started. Forza 4, Skyrim, Orcs Must Die, and Dungeon Defenders all commanded attention over the past week. And the group also weighs in on the rising cumulative cost of games with DLC season passes, the Vita's launch outside Japan, whether the "core" audience is perhaps shrinking, and more before wrapping it all up with Finishing Moves.

  • In Garnett's entire Forza 4 talk he not once mentioned Le Mans. Or talked about the endurance races ie how long they are?

    I am a huge fan of Le Mans and I love playing my buddy's copy of Forza 2 where I can drive the old Audi R10. I don't have the money to buy Forza 4 and can't find 3, but I would love to know what cars are in the game. Is the Audi R18 and the Peugeot 908 in the game? Or did they resort to the cars that have slightly more data the R15+ and the Peugeot 808? Are there any of the ILMC tracks like how Sebring and Silverstone were in Forza 2? Did they add the Le Mans track? Can I still drive the R10 and the R15 to see how they differ?

    Do they have any F1 cars? I know Garnett is an F1 fan. Do they have very many of those tracks?

    What about Indy car? I am not a very big Indy car fan, but it would still be cool to drive one of the Indy cars.

    So Garnett don't mention LMP cars and endurance cars if you aren't going to go into any detail at all on those subjects.
