Weekend Confirmed 170 - Xbox One, The Last of Us

By Ozzie Mejia, Jun 21, 2013 11:00am PDT

The word of the day on Weekend Confirmed is "feedback." Hosts Garnett Lee and Jeff Cannata welcome in Shacknews' Andrew Yoon and Double Jump's Christian Spicer to talk about why feedback matters, as they discuss the abrupt reversal of the Xbox One's unpopular policies and the entire PR fiasco that surrounded it. That's followed up with more talk of last week's E3 favorites, including TitanFall, Destiny, The Wonderful 101, Super Mario 3D World, Ryse: Son of Rome, Infamous: Second Son, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The show ends with a roundtable discussion of The Last of Us, before ending with some heartfelt Finishing Moves.

  • First want to say that I'm a long time listener of Weekend Confirmed and I really respect what all of the host(s) & guests bring to the table every week. Thank you! You guys rock! Anyways, I have recently been playing 'The Last of Us' like many other listeners have been and I love the game. Wonderfully written story and strong Character development. A PS3 masterpiece out of Naughty Dog, no doubt. I can definitely see Garnett's points about this game being what 'Resident Evil' could and should have been. The alley ways and corridors/room environments when you have your flashlight out are Resident Evilish to say the least. I'm currently 62% through the story (playing on Normal) and loving every minute of it. Even the smallest details in the game are fascinating and represent the pain staking work put in on the game by the team. I give it a 9.7 out of 10. Not a perfect score as some might give it, but only because of wonky controls when being surrounded by multiple enemies.

    P.S. Andrew Yoon I love your opinions, especially on 3DS games, but man why didn't you talk about 'Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D'. I absolutely love this game! I'm disappointed you haven't (or anybody else hasn't) talked about this game. It is an amazing platformer with ingenious level designs and unique twists and turns throughout. I really wish you guys could have some sort of honorable mention during one of the Weekend Confirmed shows about this wonderfully ported 3DS game...'Luigi's Mansion' & this game are the 2 best so far on the handheld.
