The 190th episode of Weekend Confirmed comes to you in full 1080p! With co-host Jeff Cannata away for the week, host Garnett Lee invites the Shacknews tandem of Andrew Yoon and Ozzie Mejia, along with Christian Spicer, to discuss the imminent arrival of Xbox One. But first, discussion turns to Call of Duty: Ghosts, talking about the series' growing sense of stagnation and whether it's necessarily a problem that can be solved or even one worth solving at all. After that, Andrew catches up on all things Xbox One, including games like Zoo Tycoon, Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, and Dead Rising 3, while also making a convincing case for why the packed-in Kinect peripheral matters. The show wraps up with Christian's impressions of the other major Batman game to release, the handheld Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, before everyone goes into Finishing Moves and the post-show Tailgate.
