By Ozzie Mejia, Mar 29, 2013 11:00am PDT

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.

  • Guys, I really like you show and I've been a semi-steady listener ever since you first started, but... and I say this with love... your spoiler-free skills pretty much suck. I gave your Bioshock section about 2 minutes before I had to turn it off for fear of having stuff spoiled (because I've unfortunately been disappointed by spoilers in your show too many times in the past).

    That said, I went back and listened to the Bioshock discussion today after I'd finished the game myself. Good discussion, but in retrospect, I'm glad I turned it off when I did.

    For reference, your friends over at Gamers With Jobs managed to do a good 35 minute spoiler-free segment on the game this week (and then do a long spoiler section on top of that after the regular show). Don't want to sound too whiny, but if you can't keep it spoiler free like those guys and gals, then please consider keeping your story-driven game discussions to spoiler sections only. Or don't discuss them at all. It's a fine line, I know, but as far as I'm concerned, you keep on crossing it.

    Other than that, keep up the good work. :-) (and cool to see Brian back for an episode!)
