Weekend Confirmed 100 - PlayStation Vita, DICE, Reckoning

By Garnett Lee, Feb 17, 2012 11:00am PST

Weekend Confirmed serves up its epic 100th episode with Jeff and Garnett joined by Jeff Mattas, Ariel Angelotti, and Andrea Rene. The celebration includes your listener greetings, a look back at some of the origins and good times from the first century of Weekend Confirmed, and, of course cake and beer. There's a whole lot more to get to as well. The PlayStation Vita started arriving outside Japan and we take a good look at the retail hardware, the user experience, and a couple of the launch games like Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Lumines Electronic Symphony. Jeff and Garnett both talk about the fun they're having in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, but square off when it comes down to how good the game is. There's even a philosophical discussion on the convergence of physical and virtual economies as relates to intellectual property. All that and more before it all wraps up in Finishing Moves.

  • Jeff I happen to love talk about the future and wrapping my mind around the possibilities. One thought that just sticks is humans have somewhere around 5,000 years of history. Give or take another 5,000 what with the sunken cities which would put us active before the last ice age. Now add 5,000 years from here/this point and what do have????

    But that's really far off, I would like to comment toward Garnett. Who knows if everything goes more cyber space in 50 years it might just be a foundation of knowledge that's used and we might move back toward physical objects:) because they'd become cheaper to mass produce. That's what's great about the future it's so wildly different then we plan. Just think 8 years ago texting to vote for American idol cost money per text!!!
