Weekend Confirmed 101 - American Nightmare, Darkness 2, games that make us curse

By Garnett Lee, Feb 24, 2012 11:00am PST

The second century of Weekend Confirmed begins with a corker. Coin-op TV's Rob "Pennyman" Welkner joins Jeff, Ariel, and Garnett for episode 101. They've been playing games like Alan Wake's American Nightmare, Syndicate, and the Darkeness 2. With countless hours invested in Skylanders, Rob helps shed some light on how this unlikely game became a breakout hit for kids of all ages. Discussions also take a look at why we play games that make us curse at the screen, whether Mass Effect 3's day-one DLC is a must-have for the "complete" experience, and Sony's explanation and apology for not offering the PSP UMD "Passport" transfer service to Vita owners outside Japan. All that and more before Finishing Moves puts the exclamation point on the show.

  • Man I wouldn't want to see what one of these people worried about spoilers open up the CE box and see the pamphlet with the code for the DLC, as they will get angry when they realise it tells you was it is and does and not blank piece of paper with no info at all.

    I think a REAL spoiler is what actually happens in the DLC, not what it's about.

    I have already seen photos and scans of the recently released "Art of the Mass Effect Universe" on the Mass Effect Wikia. I was there as I'm going through a ME2 session in preparation and I saw these in "new pictures added" in the sidebar. Now I know stuff I wish I hadn't, (I'm an adult and will move on). Anyway, beware there is a lot of stuff out there already, showing the DLC is nothing in the scheme of things.
