Weekend Confirmed 153 - PlayStation 4 announcements, Year Walk, Crysis 3

By Jeff Mattas, Feb 22, 2013 11:00am PST

The PlayStation 4 has been announced, so it shouldn't be a surprise that this week's episode of Weekend Confirmed is all about the new system, services, and software. Though Jeff Cannata is away in Barcelona, Garnett Lee and "Indie" Jeff Mattas are joined by Christian Spicer and Mike Schramm to break down what's exciting, what's concerning, and that which is still unknown about Sony's next-gen console announcements. Though PlayStation 4 is this week's focus, the crew also manages to sneak in some impressions of Crysis 3, and praise for Simogo's moody iOS adventure, Year Walk. Of course, a fresh batch of Finishing Moves brings it all home.

  • Assassin's Creed 4 could be one of the greatest video games ever.

    If you need me to tell you why an open world ship-based game in which you visit ports and islands is one of the most exciting concepts then kindly return to your parents and ask for a real childhood.

    Red Dead Redemption is one of my all time favourite games cause it was an open world cowboy simulator. Cactuses, trains, deserts, coyotees, riding into sun-sets, revolvers, dynamite, bank robberies, hats being shot off... That's what video games is all about, letting you step into a fantasy. And ever since Wind Waker I've ached for someone to make an open world sea captain simulator.

    Sailing through trecherous storms,naval battles, sinking ships, swinging from ship to ship, climbing to the crows nest with a telescope, tropical islands, burdied treasure ... This game feels like it could be incredible. And there's some amazing possibilities with co-operative and competitive play. Imagine a naval based multiplayer death match.

    But this game could also be the biggest disappointment ever. After AC3 was a buggy, sloppy effort with so much supurflous junk weighing it down, I'm worried this game could sink.
