Weekend Confirmed 161 - Nintendo Direct, Dark Souls, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

After a special Friday morning recording, Jeff Cannata, Dan Trachtenberg, "Indie" Jeff Mattas, and Nikole Zivalich are ready to send you into the weekend with a recap of this week's Nintendo Direct and some talk about Dark Souls and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.


Host Garnett Lee is on a boat and Jeff Cannata is coming back from NASA, so that means it's another early Friday morning recording for Weekend Confirmed. This week, the founder of 2N1Team is joined by his former Totally Rad Show co-host, Dan Trachtenberg, along with "Indie" Jeff Mattas and Nikole Zivalich. They kick the show off with a recap of this week's Nintendo Direct before diving into Dark Souls and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Also, Nikole Z didn't want to leave listeners on the edge of their seats, so she concludes her Storytime this week on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. And as always, the crew sends everyone into the weekend with a new round of Finishing Moves.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
