Weekend Confirmed 127 - Darksiders 2, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Madden NFL 13

by Jeff Mattas, Aug 24, 2012 11:00am PDT

Back in the studio this week, Garnett and crew are back to deliver another game-packed episode of Weekend Confirmed. Jeff "2N1T" Cannata, "Indie" Jeff Mattas, and returning 'confirmer' Mike Schramm bring some more Darksiders 2, Sleeping Dogs, and Papo & Yo love. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Dust: An Elysian Tail, Puzzle Craft, and Madden NFL 13 get some well-deserved time in the spotlight, before the show gets whacked with a big bag of Finishing Moves.

  • No one here has really started talking about the situation with indie games and platforms.

    Someone on the show suggested that Sony has been "better" at promoting indie games and Garnett suggested that maybe they're just better at courting indie developers. I'd rather say that Sony, through the years, has been more willing to greenlight out-of-the-box game concepts. Last gen would Microsoft have really greenlit Ico or Shadow of the Colossus? Sony is the company that put a full AAA budget behind Heavy Rain and is doing it again with Beyond.

    On the subject of which platform might be the best for indie games, I definitely think XBLA had a leg up in the beginning, but I think more than one developer (someone at Epic maybe?) has come out and said that the PC is still the best place for indies to make their initial releases. You have to admit that Steam makes indies more prominent on the front page when you log in and goes to great effort to actually sell the games. It's gotten to the point where when a game comes out on XLBA I've started waiting for the inevitable Steam release.
