Weekend Confirmed 143 - Far Cry 3, The Walking Dead, Tera

By Jeff Mattas, Dec 14, 2012 11:00am PST

On today's episode of Weekend Confirmed, Garnett, Jeff, and Jeff are joined by Shacknews' John Keefer to spread some pre-holiday cheer. The crew spends some time chatting about Far Cry 3's multiplayer modes, opines about the success of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead adventure series, and there's also some MMO talk focusing on Tera and Guild Wars 2. Naturally, Finishing Moves--complete with a new holiday-themed, fan-made intro--closes the show out properly, followed by a quick, post-show NFL TailGate.

  • I guess no one here played Zero Escape: VIrtue's Last Reward. For some reason I'm still debating in my head whether or not it's better than The Walking Dead.

    Both games have excellent writing with characters that work and stories filled with tension.

    The only differences between them are that VLR is much longer and more slowly-paced, and that it's much less mainstream in its subject matter than TWD. That's really the only thing that has given TWD its current status. It really doesn't do much new at all -- adventure games like it have been around almost since the beginning of video games. TWD is just the first one to really reach the mainstream consciousness.
