Weekend Confirmed 189 - Assassin's Creed 4, Batman: Arkham Origins

By Ozzie Mejia, Nov 01, 2013 11:00am PDT

Weekend Confirmed has finally reached the month of November and with next-gen console arrivals imminent, hosts Garnett Lee and Jeff Cannata invite Shacknews' Andrew Yoon and "Indie" Jeff Mattas to discuss the week's next-gen console stories, including the rumored different in resolution and the hardware announcements from Sony. After that, it's time to discuss games, as the crew breaks down Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag and Batman: Arkham Origins before Jeff professes further love for Path of Exile. The show wraps up with "Indie" Jeff revisiting The Stanley Parable over two years after first discussing the original mod, a brief talk about the strange Device 6, and everyone's rapidly-increasing Piles of Shame before going into some post-Halloween Finishing Moves and the post-show Tailgate.

  • I just wanted to mention, and see if others shared my view, that I will actually be choosing to postpone my entry into the new generation.

    There are so many games I want to finish(red dead, skyrim, batman, gta v, HEAVY RAIN, so many others), replay(gears of war series, god of war series, mass effect series, far cry 3, and so many others) or play that I have missed(tomb raider, dmc, beyond two souls and others).

    This, combined with the fact that there are a lot of next gen titles also coming on current gen makes me not really feel the need to run out and get the new systems. This generation is going out with a bang and there is so much yet to come(ff 14 and gran turismo).

    Plus, I just know the next gen systems will lower in price next year, so I could just pick them up at a discount or in some neat value bundle.

    Anyone else feel this way? What does the weekend confirmed crew think?
