What was your first writing assignment?  How did you prepare for it? Was the process what you thought it would be?

PlayStacin

Mediatonic is known for their work on “Fall Guys” so my question is: What would an “Active Quest” Fall Guy look like?

#1 Turner and Hooch Fan

HEY FELLERS and guest, I have a question: are your ps4 disc drives able to play a slice of salami? I read somewhere it could but I tried to put it in there and it got stuck and my Playstation won’t recognize it. Do you think it’d work if I update my firmware?

@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?

  • Wesley

Hey gamers, what movie would you insert @Reggie into from the 90s and which actor would he replace? My pick is replacing Tim Allen in Jungle2Jungle. Okay, that’s all the time I’ve got. I got to get back to playing Animal Crossing New Leaf on my Nintendo 3DS.

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?
