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.

  • Most important games of this generation. Well let me start by saying I don't think CoD is so much important as it is popular, I think halo 2 is important. So that said lets begin.

    1. Wii sports- of course it's changed the history of gaming.

    2. Geometry Wars- it brought high scores back, and pretty much created a indie games craze for 6 years now. I thought about new super Mario for a second bringing 2D gaming back, but I'm pretty sure GW had way more to do with the rebirth of old school just enjoy it games then any other this gen.

    3. Gears of War- Co-op, horde (2), yeah it brought life back into multiplayer games without gears we don't have a lot of games getting the green light for anything save ordinary death match multiplayer.

    4. LoL- A. Moba made mainstream. And B. free to play gone widely successful.

    5. Mortal Kombat 9- I honestly believe MK has changed the way single player will be done in fighters hence forth. It makes it possible to sell fighters to a entirely different market then they appeal to without that story mode.
