Weekend Confirmed 176 - Shadowrun Returns, Bioshock Infinite

By Ozzie Mejia, Aug 02, 2013 3:00pm PDT

This week's Weeeknd Confirmed opens with host Garnett Lee welcoming in "Indie" Jeff Mattas and Nikole Zivalich to briefly discuss Nintendo's recent financials and where the company goes from here. Discussion turns to Shadowrun Returns and Bioshock Infinite's newly-announced DLC offerings. And in the second hour, it's the return of the king. The newly-engaged Jeff Cannata returns from the land of kangaroos and wallabies to tell tales of his time in Australia and go right back to loving to love things. The four-person crew takes a quick look at the state of gaming journalism before sending you into the weekend with a new cornucopia of Finishing Moves.

  • I just finished listening to this episode today and felt like I needed to reply on the topic of negative communication on the internet.

    Garnett, I've listened to your podcasts since the days of 1up Yours but I've never once written to you or commented on any of the shows. In fact, I created this account on Shack News just today in order to leave this comment. 2NIT, I watched TRS for quite awhile as well.

    I'm sorry you guys have to go through such, for the lack of a better fitting word, bullshit. I'm with you. I think the prevailing attitude of the internet is absolutely atrocious. Things need to change. Up until now I've just outright avoided joining online communities unless someone I know personally was involved in them, just to avoid having that hatred pointed at me as you guys do. I commend you for putting up with it for all these years, and continuing to put yourself out there for those of us who truly appreciate your work.

    Even though we've never spoken, I feel like I know you guys on a personal level. You've been in my ears for all of the most important moments of my life: before my college graduation, the ride to the hospital for the birth of my daughter, my wedding day... You guys have made my life fun!

    So I felt like I needed to say something nice to you guys because I never knew how much shit you really take. From now on, I'll join Jeff in his crusade to fix the internet! I'll no longer sit on the sidelines and just watch someone be an asshole. I'll do my best to say something nice to that person when I see it. Maybe somehow I'll get through to them and they'll pay it forward.
