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

Listener Questions

#1 Turner and Hooch fan (@TurnerandDouche)

Piping hot Q here for Joseph: why is THE_BERRY a stone cold killer?

Zac LaRocque-Walker (@zaclw)

What does Sony have to do to convince you to buy a ps5?

GhostintheGlass (@ghostintheglass)

What Prince of Persia remake would you prefer? Sands of Time or giving PoP 2008 a second chance/sequel? 

Connor Ewing (@connoerewing)

I’m personally having trouble with being excited for any of Ubisoft’s upcoming titles (even Immortals, which I’ve been anticipating) given their consistent mishandling of the systemic workplace abuse/toxicity situation. Is this something you guys are feeling as well? Thanks!

@TurnerandDouche

Yeah hi there, long time listener, often time questioner here: is there a game out there where I can competitively milk a virtual cow? Thanks in advance.

Wesley LeBlanc

What are the chances that this new Batman game utilizes Shadow of Mordor’s Nemesis system considering both are under the WB umbrella?

Indie Pod 

What are your opinions on shadow drops? From a games media perspective and a hobbyist standpoint.
