Listener Questions

Do you think that Fall Guys will see the amount of success that Rocket League did with PS Plus? Or was their meteoric rise one in a million? – Indie Pod, the biggest of average podcasts

Okay okay, legit question, what do you think we will see inside the stadium on Warzone? My money is on a full recreation of the basketball game from Flubber.

Oh yeah, and have y’all watched Air Bud lately? That dog shoots mad hoops and got paid in Tapioca pudding cups.

What if they made a game where you used a bong as a peripheral controller called Bongerman? What would the gameplay be, how would this peripheral be used, and why the heck hasn’t Activision returned my calls regarding this idea?

– #1 Turner and Hooch fan
