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.

  • What kind of Star Wars games would everyone like to see from these studios?

    I'm not big on multiplayer shooters, but I would buy Battlefront 3. I loved the older games, but only ever played them in local co-op.

    Star Wars has zombies now. A game based on the book Death Troopers might be interesting, but far too similar to Dead Space. I'd like to see SW 1313 revived, and I think Visceral does a great job at making third-person games with some really unique and fun weapons. This is what I want from a bounty hunter game. (Also, please don't make it about any character we already know).

    As for BioWare, everyone wants a new KotoR, but TOR took the place of that (it even continues the story of Revan), and was said to be "KotoR 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8." There is already a ton of video game content about the Old Republic during the era 3,600 - 4,000 years ago. What I want to see is something new, something that has only recently been explored in Star Wars lore: I want a BioWare RPG that takes place on Tython during the Force Wars, some 700 years before the formation of the Republic.
