Weekend Confirmed 175 - Saints Row: The Third, Disney Infinity

by Ozzie Mejia, Jul 26, 2013 11:00am PDT

Jeff Cannata is still in the outback, learning to play the didgeridoo. That leaves host Garnett Lee back at the homestead with The Escapist's Andrea Rene and Shacknews' Andrew Yoon and Ozzie Mejia to continue bringing you the best in games. This week, Garnett discovers Saints Row: The Third for the first time and he tells you why he's not completely enthused by it. Talk shifts to the upcoming Super Smash Bros. and Nintendo's bizarre aversion to YouTube, before Andrea talks about some of the big games on-hand at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. The show ends with a big discussion about the Xbox One's recent policy announcements before sending you into the weekend with a new round of Finishing Moves.

  • Just a couple thoughts from the show last week (174), I was behind a little!

    I was out with one of my friends the other night and she noticed I had my 3ds in one of my pockets (I was carrying it around to get play coins for animal crossing :/ ), and that led us to the topic of games. She mentioned she has been addicted to a mobile game lately and I asked what it was. When she replied with 'Candy Crush' I kind of groaned a little. She asked why and I explained why some free to play games are evil. After my explanation she looked at the ground and mumbled that she has spent 18 dollars on candy crush in only a few weeks. I told her next time she has that impulse to text me and I will give her an awesome 99 cent game to try :) By the way she is a 25 year old, what I would consider a non gamer. When I asked why she liked it she said it was perfect for killing time and what's a dollar here or there??

    Second, I just want to applaud Christian on his rant against needing our nostalgic games and feelings to be replicated again. I am tired of people always looking at the past and comparing things directly. True, old school games and gaming were awesome, but there are a ton of amazing experiences we can focus on now and in the future! One example is a buddy of mine bought a RetroDuo for 100 bucks. He had it for two days and it broke ( the retro duo can play old console games, SNES, nes, etc). With that 100 bucks I told him he could have bought two or three awesome newer games instead of wasting money trying to capture nostalgic feelings...
