Weekend Confirmed Episode 18

Some say Weekend Confirmed sounds like a morning show and this week it truly is as we recorded early to help Jeff get a head start on his journey down to San Diego for Comic-Con. With Garnett and Brian up early too, the caffeine-fueled show gets started with a flashback as World of Warcraft has gotten its clutches back around one of the guys. There's also a new perspective on DeathSpank, Singularity, and this week's Cannata-ford a New Game by unanimous decision: Alien Swarm. Your feedback on how value figures into your assessment of a game came across loud and clear and it provides the springboard to lead into the Warning. This week it's a look at some of the crew's favorite games growing up and "next-gen" faces a reckoning. June's NPD sales figures lead the news in the Front Page and Brian also has a complete report from EA's summer studio showcase.
