Weekend Confirmed 114 - Diablo 3, Max Payne 3, Lost Planet 3

Diablo 3 and Max Payne 3 continue to keep the Weekend Confirmed hosts talking in this week's episode of Weekend Confirmed. Garnett is back this week, and there's a lot to talk about with Jeff Cannata, Jeff Mattas and Andrea Rene.

Diablo 3 has strengthened its hold on Jeff Cannata who really only wants to talk about his barbarian, but there's so much more to cover. Garnett returns to the driver's seat after spending last week getting a sneak peek at some of the big games ready to vie for the spotlight at E3. "Indie" Jeff and Andrea Rene complete the adventuring party that gets down to business discussing their varying degree of anticipation for E3, the demise of 38 Studios, and the plight of subscription model MMOs, whether Max Payne 3 actually improves the gunplay over previous Rockstar open world games, and a handful of other games including Lost Planet 3 and Rock Band Blitz. Put a bird on it with Finishing Moves and you've got one massive show to take along on the Memorial Day weekend.

      Nice to have Andrea back! And how much does Cannata wish he was Adam Levine?
      Ok trolling aside, last week there was a lot of talk about Diablo 3 and how the "addictiveness" was back. With the ability to respec your character at any point, how do you feel about the replay-ability beyond just trying out new classes?
