Weekend Confirmed 84 - Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, GTA V announced

By Garnett Lee, Oct 28, 2011 11:15am PDT

Battlefield 3 blew up across the video game world this week and its shockwaves carried right over to Weekend Confirmed. But believe it or not, BlizzCon momentarily upstages the modern warfare, as Xav, Jeff, Andrea, and Garnett get distracted by pandas in WoW and the latest title to board the DOTA train. This special episode was recorded in the evening and the crew celebrated with beers and bourbon. So buckle up, it gets bumpy from the start. Along the rest of the way there's talk of Uncharted 3 and Dance Central 2, hopes and dreams for Grand Theft Auto V, and, of course, Finishing Moves.

  • As a 25 year old guy gamer I would be all for a female protagonist in the next GTA. After a death to my hard drive I was forced to replay Mass Effect 2 and decided to try it as femshep, it was hard to get used to at first simply because I had become accustomed to the stilted acting of my generic bald dude aka Sheppard Sheppard (who wants to be called by thier last name all the time?), but I found after a couple hours that femshop not only gave a far superior performance but added another layer of tension and gravitas to the story as she played against stereotypes unlike her male counterpart.

    I posed this question to my coworkers at an advertising agency and found that, probably unsurprisingly, all the women gamers were in full support of a female lead, while the guys were split. If adult men are uncomfortable playing a female character I find it hard to believe that 13-16 year old guys (still a large portion of the gaming audience) would want to play as a female.

    With that said, drunken Andrea is just about the cutest thing I've ever heard.
