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!

  • On the subject of difficulty in games:

    Remember Morrowind intro? You get off a boat and get hassled by some old bastard with a notebook. There are a couple different routes you could take, but one was a series of word problems that helped shape your character. "You come across a hurt deer in the woods do you a, b, or c?

    Games should quiz you before you play. Have you played video games before? Did they make you happy or frustrated? Do you lean to the left or right when you are being shot at or careening towards the edge of a cliff in your sports car? How many hours do you play usually? Do you know what third person shooters are? Are you in anger management and need to avoid situations in which you might throw your controller? Do you Tea bag? Why was there a capital T in tea?
