Listener Questions

Jake AKA Creamydave

When do you think the average person will have no issues getting a PS5?

Andrew McMahon

What is your favorite sports video game of all time. Also, did you ever enjoy them because you felt like you where living the dream of a pro athlete vicariously through playing it?

#1 Turner and Hooch Fan

Hey gamers, I have to say, I’m looking forward to the day I have enough copies of Turner and Hooch on vhs that I can build a gaming throne out of them. My question for you is this: if I stick a controller up my ass, will I become a peripheral? Asking for scientific reasons.

Sabrina Rei

Rocket league is basically soccer with cars, what other sports mashups do you think could potentially work?

#1 50 Cent Blood on the Sand Fan

alright so you know I need to ask 

do you think Resident Evil 8 will have 50 Cent in it? Obviously as like a cosmetic DLC because the game would be over almost immediately if you were playing as 50 Cent.

Joseph Yaden

Were y’all as confused as I was when you you first heard Combustion by Meshuggah? It has this hi-hat countdown in the intro that sounds like it’s off beat…but it couldn’t be. It’s Meshuggah, after all. Turns out, the song starts on the upbeat, making it sound like the hi-hat…

..count-in is off time — but it’s not. If you play the entire intro sequence with a metronome and start it on the downbeat before the song actually starts, the hi-hat countdown will make sense and will be absolutely 100% on time.

Listener Questions

Vaughn Hyde
Do you think you’ll play in first or third person in the new Indiana Jones game? While Machine Games showed they’re fantastic at making first-person shooters with Old Blood and New Colossus. I think the IJ license would be somewhat misused in first person.

Andrew McMahon

Do you think this is the start of a connective video game universe for Star Wars?

#1 Turner and Hooch Fan
How big is an infinite halo? How the fuck do they plan on fitting the game on the disc?

#1 Kingdom Hearts Fan
Hey there, u shud talk more about Kingdom Hearts. Who cares aboot Xbox? Indiana Jones issss old.

Btw, Chris is not the #1 Kingdom Hearts fan. I am! Poser!

Do you think that the genital customization in Cyberpunk was just there to get more people to talk about it or is it there for a real reason? Is it unfair that there are more penis options than vagina options? Tell me what you really think about what V has in their pants!
