Garnett, Brian, and Jeff waste no time getting down to the business of confirming weekends. There's months of backlog for Whatcha Been Playin and they make a strong effort digging into it with God of War 3, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Starcraft 2 beta, and a whole lot more. Even before the show's started the listeners have come through strong with great starters for Four Minute Warning. And in Front Page the 3DS announcements leads off a full slate of news.

The Front Page with the rebirth of EGM, seemingly imminent announcement of Gears of War 3, and a PlayStation 3 update that removes Linux support in the news keeps the show rocking...

Garnett returns from Captivate fired up to confirm the weekend with Brian, Jeff, and Billy. He brings a healthy helping of Capcom to Whatcha Been Playin? with Dead Rising 2 co-op, Okamiden, and Marvel vs. Capcom 3. But that's in the second part because Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Monster Hunter Tri kick the show off in prime form. In a rematch, the contest format returns for Four Minutes to Get Drunk With Power but this time without the scoring with topics form whether it's too late for Gran...

The group also looks at all the other big games hitting their 10th anniversary...

Garnett leads the Weekend Confirmed crew in a passionate talk about the recent Tomb Raider controversy. And finally, there is more Diablo 3 talk, of course.

Microsoft unleashed the Kinect sensor add-on that brings controller-less play to the Xbox 360 and we've been playing with it and the first batch of games. But Dance Central, Kinect Adventures, and Kinect Sports aren't the only thing in Whatcha' Been Playin? The GoldenEye remake for Wii, Z.H.P., Fable 3, and more get in on the act as well. Your thoughts on videogame length, achievement systems, and the concepts of universal design spur the conversation in the Warning. We break down both sides in...

Thanksgiving might be a week away but the new release feast is in full swing. After a couple of quick follow ups to last week's Black Ops coverage, Garnett, Brian, and Jeff serve up Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, 007: Blood Stone, and Donkey Kong Country Returns as the main dishes in Whatcha' Been Playin? The reactionary commentary of ESPN's 1st and Ten cast in response to Kobe's appearance in the Black Ops ads starts off the Warning. Your thoughts on shooter fatigue, urgency without a ticking...

Part two of our massive E3 2010 wrap up picks up where last week left off with a plethora of games that would satisfy even El Guapo. So naturally it begins with guns, and lots of them in what we're dubbing E3 shooterpalooza. Headliners for the segment include Rage, Halo: Reach, Bulletstorm, Brink, Deus Ex, Gears of War 3, FEAR 3, and more. But it's not all bullet-time either; once the clip is empty it's on to Epic Mickey, Mortal Kombat, Lord of the Rings: War in the North, Need for Speed Hot...

Billy "plan B" Berghammer joins Jeff and Garnett on a show that sounds like it would be full of angst. Rage and Dark Souls both came out this week, and there's a lot to talk about, including how the guy who "loves loving things" takes to a game renowned for its bleakness. Microsoft's additions to the television offerings on Live also become a hot topic, but the group doesn't seem nearly as impressed as the press release would lead one to believe. The iOS update and iPhone 4S...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Modern Warfare 3 arrived this week and the Weekend Confirmed crew takes a little break from playing them to share their stories from the games. Wouldn't you know, a cold bug seems to be sweeping through the offices as well, laying out Xav and sapping Garnett. He carries on, though, joined by Jeff and Christian because the show must go on. And boy does it. Saints Row the Third also got into the mix of what we've been playing and we take a look at whether it's odd...

Some say Weekend Confirmed sounds like a morning show and this week it truly is as we recorded early to help Jeff get a head start on his journey down to San Diego for Comic-Con. With Garnett and Brian up early too, the caffeine-fueled show gets started with a flashback as World of Warcraft has gotten its clutches around one of the guys. There's also a new perspective on DeathSpank, Singularity, and this week's Cannata-ford a New Game by unanimous decision: Alien Swarm. Your feedback on how...

Like millions of gamers, the Weekend Confirmed crew jumped all over Batman: Arkham City when it came out this week. There's an abundance of love for the game, but Garnett does take exception to the move that put Catwoman out of the reach of gamers without an Internet connection. Along with the two Jeffs--Cannata and "Indie"--and with our second Play For Japan charity auction winner, Eric Hwang, they're just getting started. Forza 4, Skyrim, Orcs Must Die, and Dungeon Defenders all...
