Weekend Confirmed 105 - Journey, Mists of Pandaria, Mass Effect 3

by Garnett Lee, Mar 23, 2012 11:00am PDT

After a long look at Mass Effect 3 last week, Jeff, Jeff, Andrea, and Garnett turn their attentions to Journey, the upcoming Mists of Pandaria expansion for World of Warcraft, and other games. However, they cannot ignore the interesting turn the controversy over the ending of Mass Effect 3 took with BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka directly addressing fans to promise them "clarity" and "closure" through new content the team will create. We also catch up on the announcement of an Epic Mickey sequel along the way to wrapping up with Finishing Moves.

  • This was the first Weekend Confirmed podcast I have listened to, it was recommended to me. I enjoyed it mostly, but was a bit turned off by the dismissive attitude (by some of the hosts, not all) taken about the critics of the ending of ME3. It struck me as sort of weirdly defensive, like party leaders supressing dissenters from speaking or complaining (I work in government, this is the first analogy that comes to mind, sorry if its heavy handed). There seems to be more variety to all the different gripes and many more expressions of disatisfaction with the ending than the hosts seem to characterize the "unhappy group" with.

    Anytime I hear that a form of protest or dissent is labeled "Dangerous", I'm a little unsettled (y'know unless the dissent actually causes danger). Whats the danger? The consumer only has as much power as the group is perceived to have. If an prudent "artist" can be swayed by monetary concerns, it can only alter his/her integrity as much as he/she chooses.

    I enjoyed the rest of the podcast though, will listen to the rest!
