Weekend Confirmed 139 - X-COM, Halo 4, Assassin's Creed 3

By Jeff Mattas, Nov 16, 2012 11:00am PST

On today's spirited episode of Weekend Confirmed, Garnett Lee and "Indie" Jeff Mattas are joined by Insomniac's James Stevenson and Marcus Beer from Invisible Walls. X-COM: Enemy Unknown gets a healthy dose of love from the crew, and the polarizing nature of Assassin's Creed 3--particularly its opening hours--gets discussed. The gaming scrutiny continues with some talk about Halo 4 and the legacy of 007, before everything gets wrapped up with Finishing Moves and the post-show TailGate.

  • I completely agree that it is time to reboot the Resident Evil series. I also think taking it back to survival horror and staying in and around one location is the way to go, but I do not want another Umbrella. Instead, I would rather see an exploration of the Dawn of the Dead idea that the zombies have come about because hell has filled up. That idea brings up questions about the existence of the spirit that I think could benefit RE.

    They also need to Nathan Drake the main character of any RE reboot. Chris and Leon are superhuman now. There is no suspense when they are involved, because you know Capcom doesn't have the guts to kill them. If the audience knows there is no real peril other than a game over screen and a reload time, why should they invest in the character?
