Weekend Confirmed 196 - The Walking Dead: Season Two

By Ozzie Mejia, Dec 20, 2013 11:00am PST

There are two holiday episodes of Weekend Confirmed on tap for the end of 2013, but first, there's one more "regular season" edition to get through. Hosts Garnett Lee and Jeff Cannata welcome in Shacknews' Andrew Yoon and Christian Spicer to talk about some of the final bits of news left over for the year, starting off with the recently-revealed sales numbers for Call of Duty: Ghosts. That leads into this week's Nintendo Direct and whether the news revealed can generate any sort of excitement for Nintendo in 2014. And yes, there's ample discussion about the games revealed for both the Wii U and 3DS. The show then moves into some talk about The Walking Dead: Season Two before wrapping up with Finishing Moves and the weekend Tailgate.

  • Looks like Garnett is the latest person to get pulled into 999 and VLR. That game is gotten probably more LTTP (late to the party) threads than any other on GAF. Garnett needs to post his reactions to the story somewhere.

    Also, it looks like he's starting to be pulled into the world of visual novels. It's pretty much the same as reading a book printed on a game card (or disc). Some of them just happen to be pretty good books. I even think the Eurogamer review of 999 noted that a visual novel was basically one step removed from reading a Kindle.
