Weekend Confirmed Ep. 52 Show Story
From Shacknews: The Nintendo 3DS arrives in Europe and North America over the weekend but Jeff and Garnett have already been playing with the new handheld for a week. Their impressions of the hardware and some of the launch games fill most of the opening Whatcha Been Playin? section but there's much more to come includine Crysis 2, Shogun 2, Mortal Kombat, and Patapon 3. Shacknews's own Jeff Mattas and good friend of the show Christian Spicer round out the cast this week and brought their A game for the Warning where the group covers game criticism, behaviorism as applied to discovery in games, and more. All that, plus this week's videogame news in the Front Page and Finishing Moves make this a can't miss show.

Front Page news: Start: 01:38:02 End: 02:13:11



This week's Featured Music comes from the supremely talented David Ruffin Jr. In the past years, highly touted music publications such as Rolling Stone, The Source, and Rap Pages have labeled David Jr. as "talented and is up-and-coming". However, perhaps his most thrilling moment in music came when he heard a world wide, multi-platinum song, called...Gin & Juice. A Hip-Hop Classic now! A song that Dr. Dre, T-Green, Snoop, and he collaborated on and recorded together. David Jr. recently relocated to Los Angeles in an attempt to get some recognition for his latest creations. David credits his father, along with current soloist, Joe and 80s crooners, Alexander ONeal, James D-Train Williams, and the great Marvin Gaye as the major influences on his style of singing.

Pick up a copy of his new CD "All My Life" at CD Baby. You will not be disappointed. And keep up with the latest and greatest from David Ruffin Jr. on ReverbNation, facebook, and twitter.

Knights Errant serve up their track "Hiyah" in this week's Featured Music spot. The band consists of Ben Jendras, Conor Ryan, and Jerry Willoughby from Chicago.

Catch up with them on Facebook and MySpace.
