Billy and Christian join Jeff and Garnett in the studio for this week's show. A look back at the Halo: Reach campaign as played solo as opposed to cooperatively gets things started in Whatcha Been Playin? GoldenEye also gets a brief reassessment before yielding to Marvel vs. Capcom 3. There's time to catch up on your comments during the Warning and the open question of how intimidating the competitive nature of some games can be to players who just want to have fun. The Front Page closes this week's show with a full slate of new game and DLC announcements from Double Fine's Sesame Street kinect game to a da Vinci-themed add-on for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.

In the Featured Music break this week it's "Hangman" from Room 16. They are a straightforward rock band from Scotland who like playing music with guitars in it. Room 16 has been making music for better or worse for about 3 years now and has had the pleasure of gigging across the country. Their line up consists of singer Ewan McCall, guitarists Andrew Gordon and Adam Gatherer, bass player Kyle McLellan and drummer Ronan McLellan. Hangman was written by Andrew Gordon with additional lyrics from Ewan McCall.

If you're fortunate enough to be around Glasgow on Saturday, March 12 you can check them out at Barrowlands 2. They've also graciously offered to send a free track to Weekend Confirmed listeners just for the asking. Connect with Room 16 via Twitter, Facebook, the official Room 16 site, and their bandcamp page.

    Geez, JeffC has been waiting for two years for a GAF approval just like me.

    Now I don't feel so bad.

      I applied after the 1UP buyout, it was so long I lost track. The mods are idiots, even ignoring the approval issue.

        Speaking of community, will some of the video questions from previous weeks be brought up, or has this already died and premature death (along with the radio theater stuff)?

        There was also some stuff brought up on EP 46 on the threads, but I think the DICE stuff took priority. Any chance some of the old stuff will return in the near future?

          The first one is posted on our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/weekendconfirmed) now. We are going to try a weekly thing where the guys & guests answer one question from the audience each and we'll post their answers throughout the week.

            Awesome. Thanks Del Rio. Just checked out the first few, and am interested in the "off the cuff" responses. Very well spoken indeed.

        Thanks Jeff for mentioning the gaf thing, I'm not sure what kind of background check they are running over there, I've been waiting for three years now I think. Maybe that means the background check worked?

      Sorry to post this here, but how are we supposed to post new comments now? It the other thread it says that the New Comment button is at the bottom, but in the WC comment section, no button appears?

      I don't feel so bad now, they've only ignored me for like 9 months.
