Weekend Confirmed 161 - Nintendo Direct, Dark Souls, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

By Ozzie Mejia, Apr 19, 2013 1:15pm PDT

Host Garnett Lee is on a boat and Jeff Cannata is coming back from NASA, so that means it's another early Friday morning recording for Weekend Confirmed. This week, the founder of 2N1Team is joined by his former Totally Rad Show co-host, Dan Trachtenberg, along with "Indie" Jeff Mattas and Nikole Zivalich. They kick the show off with a recap of this week's Nintendo Direct before diving into Dark Souls and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Also, Nikole Z didn't want to leave listeners on the edge of their seats, so she concludes her Storytime this week on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. And as always, the crew sends everyone into the weekend with a new round of Finishing Moves.

  • I thank you Dan for confirming something I had wondered if was really true or not. I got the Witcher 2 on a steam sale over Christmas and having tried to get into that after playing the two Souls games I found I couldn't because the combat didn't have the proper feedback for me to want to engage in it, so I spent a great deal of time rolling around like a lunatic not really having fun.

    Likewise with the recent update to Skyrim I tried to go back to it and the combat in that (which if we face it has never been a high point of that series) let me down considerably and I could not get into at all.

    Dark Souls and a reintroduction of Monster Hunter into my life have effectively broke me for other melee games. This is probably what huge FPS players always talk about when they mention the shooting doesn't feel right.
