Weekend Confirmed 181 - Xbox One, Lost Planet 3

It's a Weekend Confirmed Birthday Celebration! Host Garnett Lee celebrates his birthday, along with co-host Jeff Cannata, "Indie" Jeff Mattas, and The Escapist's Andrea Rene. They talk about the Xbox One release date and the landscape of the gaming world this fall. That leads to discussion of the many games covered at this year's PAX Prime, including those featured at this year's Indie Megabooth. Everyone's also been playing a number of games themselves, including Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Lost Planet 3, and Outlast. And then it's full-speed ahead on the new NFL season, so the Finishing Moves segment is cut a little short to help make way for the year's first Tailgate.
