Weekend Confirmed 87 - Zelda: Skyward Sword, Halo Anniversary, Skyrim

Billy joins Xav, Jeff, and Garnett for this week's show which includes The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Halo Anniversary, Skyrim, a look back at Xbox and GameCube as they turn ten, and more.


Link's next adventure, the Legend of Zelda: Skyward sword kept Billy--who also penned the Shacknews.com review--enthralled for over fifty hours. Jeff also dusted off his Wii to play it and the two of them have plenty of praise for the game to get the show started. Xav also returns to round out the rest of the cast joining Garnett this week. He's been adventuring in Skyrim and rediscovering Halo, in the ten year anniversary HD remake. With the momentous time on everyone's mind, we look back at the original Xbox, and lest we be remiss, Billy makes sure we remember the GameCube as well as it too turns ten. Along the way we also talk about how the big games of October fared at the register, which of them now reigns supreme online, and more before wrapping it up with Finishing Moves and weekly football tailgate.
