Weekend Confirmed 88 - Skyrim, Holiday leftovers

By Garnett Lee, Nov 23, 2011 11:00am PST

Join Xav, Jeff, Andrea, and Garnett as they celebrate the long Thanksgiving weekend. They share tales from Skyrim and Assassin's Creed Revelations during the beginning of the show. Some of the excellent discussions from the show comments last week fuel plenty of discussion on whether gamers want to be told a story, or play their own. Everyone is set for the 360 dashboard update, now that it's finally coming December 6. And the group starts to sort through the gaming leftovers already gathering from a great year of games that included LittleBIGPlanet 2, Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, L.A. Noire, and so many more titles that are already fading into memories. Finishing moves and a special Thanksgiving games edition of the tailgate wrap it all up.

  • Great show here's some random topics for episodes during the slow release month:

    -Discussion about under the radar niche games that you usually ignore like King of Fighters 13, XIII:lost identity(or any of the new adventure games that are released on steam), or Way of the Samurai 3 ( it's short and would make some fun a discussion).

    -how publishers can raise consumer awareness to a game post-release L.A. noire was recently released in a complete edition for PC and consoles that contain all the DLC and pre-order content this sold me on the game but I think it's still lost despite being a pretty good deal on amazon.

    -brainstorming for developers, successful developers these days tend to stick to a formula but what if they break out of their formulas and unleash a product few could believe they where capable of? like bioware making a Mass-Effect spin off that's a rad stealth game/RPG or Volition creating an action game with uncharted level writing and their assortment of creative weapons and dynamic environments (and one that takes place on multiple planets).

    -Shenmue was released in December over ten years ago, maybe it's time to revisit that game, or any other old favorite, preferably a game you like yet many dislike.
