Weekend Confirmed 120 - Dawnguard, Day Z, Diablo 3

By Garnett Lee, Jul 06, 2012 11:00am PDT

Despite the summer's dearth of new releases, the Weekend Confirmed crew get into some spirited discussions about Diablo 3's questionable end-game, and what it's like to be a vampire in Skyrim's new expansion, Dawnguard. Garnett, Jeffs Cannata and Mattas, and regular guest Andrea Rene also delve into some talk about the Day Z beta mod that brings hardcore zombie survival to ArmA 2, and opine a bit about ZombiU and Sim City Social as well. The eclectic mix of topics all wraps up with another batch of Finishing Moves.

  • I don't obviously know what Sony wants to do or will do with the gaikai purchase but I can think of a few other less obvious ideas that could be good.

    For example, you could demo a game on stream as the service currently runs, see http://www.greenmangaming.com/ and try the gaikai powered demos they have (and today they also have hacker evolution for free! so here's a tip) you could decide to buy the game and game would start to download while you played on the stream, of course it's a bit unrealistic now, but later who knows.

    A different idea would be a evolution of the failed remote play feature, where your playstation would act as a server for when you are out and could still enjoy the game on your mobile phone or tablet or pc.

    A more realistic and grounded idea in the near future, is that they will reinforce the cloud in such a way that your save between the playstation 3 and vita is very quickly synced so there's no need for "transfarring" or connecting the two device. Within 60 seconds or a bit more of a Wifi connection would suffice to sync the save.

    This just to name a few of the options that they could be pursuing with that purchase.
