By Jeff Mattas, Feb 08, 2013 11:00am PST

Garnett Lee is away at DICE this week, but never fear! Jeff Cannata, Jeff Mattas, Andrew Yoon, and Alex Albrecht convene for this week's spirited episode of Weekend Confirmed. Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time gets a glowing recommendation from Andrew, Mattas talks about his experience playing through Dead Space 3 twice in one week, and Alex opines about a big crop of past and present MMORPG's. Cannata also shares his very impressive, hands-on experience with Google Fiber, and an extra-strength dose of Finishing Moves puts the wrapping on this week's show.

  • Wow, surprised you've had such a terrible experience with TWC, Andrew -- even in New York?

    It may be that their service varies from area to area, but at least in Chelsea (in Manhattan) they seem to be the best available option--and they're really not that bad. (There is no Verizon FiOS service here, so I can't get fiber).

    In terms of customer service, yeah, they could improve their 'windows' and scheduling, but the few times I've had to get a technician over, they've been pretty professional and competent. I wonder if they may be using outsourced techs in your area (which would explain why they recommended another service too). Was the guy who came to your place wearing a TWC uniform?

    There's only been one time about 6 or 7 years ago where my internet was getting painfully slow. Their tech came over (yes, after a few days waiting), checked some stuff w/ my cable modem, and then just replaced it with a newer model.

    Since then, it's been pretty smooth sailing with some really decent speeds (for cable internet) that have gradually increased:

    (Note that's a test from NYC to San Jose, CA)

    In fact the one comms company I really do HATE is Verizon, because of an old beef from 2000 where their DSL tech came in and unplugged my Covad Internet service, leaving me in DSL hell for 2 months.
