While the gaming world turns its eyes to PAX Prime in Seattle, Weekend Confirmed holds down the home front. Hosts Garnett Lee and Jeff Cannata welcome in "Indie" Jeff Mattas and Shacknews' Ozzie Mejia to sort out this week's Nintendo announcements, including trying to make heads or tails of what the company was thinking with that 2DS design. After that, it's time to dive into games, as the team discusses Madden NFL 25, Saints Row IV, Killer Is Dead, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Hearthstone (Or is it Hurthstone?), and Shelter. The show ends with a new round of Finishing Moves and a few Super Bowl predictions, because the NFL kicks off in just six days!
