Weekend Confirmed Episode 12

It's not just the weekend; we're confirming E3 2010 this week. G4's Adam Sessler joins Garnett, Brian, and Jeff for predictions on whether Move or Natal have or even need a "killer app," the potential that there might actually be a new PlayStation Portable announced, and, of course, what it will take and who will "win" the show. They also cover some awesome games in Whatcha' Been Playin? including Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker, Rock Band 3, and a quick revisiting of Alpha Protocol. Kingpin and Deus Ex lead a strong Cannata-ford a New Game lineup. And new game announcements pack the news in the Front Page.

    When will Kentia Hall return to E3? It's not E3 until the oddities of Kentia return. You guys should remember, Guitar Hero premiered in the bowels of Kentia years ago.

      Didn't they turn Kentia into a parking lot? If so, I wouldn't hold my breath.

        This is terrible news if true! Where else at E3 can you get a mixed drink, demo the Novint Falcon, and play Dragon's Lair for free all in a 10 minute span???
