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!

Listener Questions

 #1 Turner and Hooch fan

Howdy gim gammers, #1 Turner and Hooch fan here. Question: how much hair is too much hair inside of your buttcrack? Should I see a doctor? Also, follow up to last weeks question: yes, I did poo my pant after eating a rest stop chuckles. It was immediate.

Andrew McMahon

Thoughts on the future/potential of cloud gaming on the Switch?

Greysun Morales

Been playing Pikmin 3 Deluxe, ghost of Tsushima legends, and now No More Heroes 1. Might buy 2 down the line

Jerel

Which is the better value, the Xbox All Access program for a Series X, or getting a series X and purchasing Ultimate separately? With games rotating constantly what should I do for next gen? Purchase when I see fit or commit for two years from the start?

Nelia

Honestly, if an official Xbox series X fridge can happen, I wonder if this’ll open other mundane appliances up to the “video game edition” treatment. I wouldn’t mind like a PlayStation microwave or something tbh
