This week, it's a Very Special Weekend Confirmed Reunion! The show reunites hosts, past and present, as Garnett Lee and Jeff Cannata welcome in Joystiq's Xav de Matos and former co-host Brian Leahy. They kick off the show with some talk about Dota 2, StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, and the professional gaming circuit. That's followed with a long talk about BioShock Infinite, covering everything without spoiling a thing. The show wraps up with some more speculation regarding the next generation of consoles, before everyone brings it home with fresh Finishing Moves.

  • It's weird to hear talk of a need for innovative games then talk about how metal gear rising is a 39 dollar game. A game that actually brings something different to the action game genre.

    DmC and god of war should be 39 as well. Why bother making anything besides RPG's or FPS's if you're considered a b level game if the first play though is under 50 hours. I played fallout 3 and didn't like it. Played about five hours. I don't go out there saying it's a 39 dollar game. Just wasn't for me.

    You can't make an absolute rulling on what a game is worth. I didn't hesitate buying MGSRising full price but i decided to pass on Gears Judgement. There's definitely somebody reading this that thinks it's the other way around. I paid 29$ for the second dissidia game, loved it and i put 130 hours into it already. I guess any other game that doesn't match that play time, regardless of the genre, should be 29$.

    This price talk needs to stop. It's not like it's set at that price forever. If you don't like the price, wait 2 months, buy it used, rent it. People who love the game come off thinking they didn't pay enough.
