Weekend Confirmed 171 - Xbox One, The Last of Us Spoiler-Cast

By Ozzie Mejia, Jun 28, 2013 11:00am PDT

With Jeff Cannata absent, host Garnett Lee is left to discuss the beginning of the summer doldrums. He welcomes in "Indie" Jeff Mattas and Nikole Zivalich to discuss any final Xbox One thoughts before shifting to Borderlands 2's Assault on Dragon's Keep DLC and discuss the pros and cons of the Season Pass model. Shacknews' Andrew Yoon joins the show for the latter half to help briefly discuss Company of Heroes 2, before ending the normal part of the show a little early with some Finishing Move. That paves the way for a special Spoiler-cast, as the final half-hour of the show is fully dedicated to discussing The Last of Us and its many twists and turns. If you haven't finished the game yet, bookmark it for the future. If you have, enjoy the discussion!

  • Garnett,
    Thanks for reading this comment (as I know you have to read a lot of them). Gaming has been my most beloved hobby for decades now, and I am ashamed to admit that I only recently discovered Weekend Confirmed (about two months ago). I've never been much of a podcast guy, but let me say that I enjoy just about every minute of your show each week. You and your guests always talk about gaming in a way that doesn't come off as snobbish, elitist, or simply giving off the "we are IN the industry - bow to our wisdom" vibe. On top of all that, all of the commentary is intelligent and thoughtful. Just wanted to say thanks for putting on this show. I can't claim I'm a Weekend Confirmed veteran, but I can claim that I'm hooked and have yet another reason to look forward to each Friday.

    For the July Q&A show, here's a comment followed by my question: For my money, The Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite are the best two games that I have played in years, and most likely this generation. I have played both of them through multiple times, and cannot for the life of me decide which game I think is superior. While both are different experiences, they both nail just about everything I want in video games today. My question for the panel would be, which one of those two games would you put above the other. I look forward to the controversial discussion (should my question reach the show). Thanks for a great show, man.
