Weekend Confirmed 191 - PS4 launch, Super Mario 3D World

By Ozzie Mejia, Nov 15, 2013 11:00am PST

The PS4 launches today and it's time to celebrate with Weekend Confirmed. Hosts Garnett Lee and Jeff Cannata welcome in Shacknews' Andrew Yoon and The Escapist's Andrea Rene to usher in a new generation of consoles, but first, they discuss this past weekend's Blizzcon and all of the exciting news to come out of that event. Then the topic turns to next-generation consoles, where everyone discusses the PS4 launch lineup, including Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, Need For Speed: Rivals, and more. They also talk about what to expect from next week's Xbox One release and discuss why Nintendo may be a real force to be reckoned with this holiday season, thanks to the upcoming Super Mario 3D World and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. The show sends you to your shiny new PS4's with new Finishing Moves and the post-show Tailgate.

  • As much as I agree with Jeff's Finishing move...

    There have been many times that I felt members of this podcast have behaved in some of the ways that Jeff was railing against.

    There was an episode earlier this year where Nicole was happy and giddy over the final Mass Effect DLC and even though she was the only one on that podcast who actually played it, Jeff and Garnett were both trolling, making fun of her comments, and her enthusiasm.

    I have made numerous posts on these forums when I have felt that Garnett has trolled and been negative towards things he hasn't even played (though I do applaud that Garnett has not done this in quite some time).

    Do I need to even bring up Marcus Beer's shtick that seems to be everything Jeff was railing against?

    Even this past episode I felt that Andrea was trolling the PS4 for no good reason.

    Still, despite all these criticisms Weekend Confirmed is my favorite podcast BECAUSE I find it to be the least negative gaming podcast out there. I just feel that sometimes this podcast is guilty of doing what Jeff was railing against. Just my opinion.
