Weekend Confirmed 164 - Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Wolfenstein

By Ozzie Mejia, May 10, 2013 11:00am PDT

The new game release cupboard is looking a bit bare to hosts Garnett Lee and Jeff Cannata. They welcome in Nikole Zivalich and Naughty Dog's Jason Paul to put the Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon discussion to bed before moving on to the new Wolfenstein announcement, Warren Spector's comments, and where the first-person shooter genre goes in the future. With the next generation around the corner, the discussion begins on the best games of the past generation. That's followed by some talk about the big Disney/EA deal for the Star Wars license. The show ends with a new round of Finishing Moves.

  • Warning, non gaming related, but nerd related post incoming, so I'll make it brief.

    I just got back from seeing Star Trek Into Darkness (yay for living in Australia) and I want to share my joy with absolutely no spoilers.

    I've become a really jaded movie goer as I'm getting into my 30s and I find myself more and more disappointed by movies. I wish I could go back to my teenage self when movies like Jaws, Jurassic Park and Star Wars thrilled me. I don't turn my nose up at everything these days, just most stuff, I feel like my younger movie going mind is drowning in a sea of soulless of the remakes of TV shows, cartoons, books, board games that are bloated with CG and lacking in human drama and genuine tension. I wonder how people can celebrate bland, predictable films like Avatar.

    But wow, Star Trek took me back tonight. It was positively thrilling. I found myself gasping and jumping in my seat like a kid again. J.J. has got it nailed. I found myself right in the world, often with my breath held in suspense. Although the action barely pauses to let you catch your breath, the film is still packed with gripping drama and emotion. It's like an intricate, intense plot taking place on an out of control train at top speed that threatens to crash and explode at any moment.

    I am positively PUMPED for what JJ will do for Star Wars. This man clearly understands how to do an adventure/fantasy film.

    Go see it, you will not be disappointed.
