Two game design heavyweights lend their voices to the show this week. Weekend Confirmed welcomes the legendary Ken Rolston, lead designer on Morrowind and Oblivion, who is currently working on Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Big Huge Games' lead combat designer Joe Quadara also joins us. Together, they provide new insights from the creator's side in our ongoing discussions around Skyrim and storytelling within large-scale open world role playing games. Of course, the conversation naturally then turns to the approaches they took with Reckoning, and we get into some detail about the upcoming game. There's much more as well with news and your comments from last week's show before we wrap it all up with Finishing Moves.
