So, Warzone. Do you like the recent trend of battle royale games replacing maps instead of adding a new map as a second option? I see positives to both!

Alex

@itsallsubjectiv

If you could choose one game to preserve forever because you think no one else will, what game would you choose and why is it Warlords on the Atari 2600?

In this case, “preserved” in the sense of “playable/accessible to anyone forever”

not “preserved” like…encased in an epoxy resin or somethin’

Listener Questions

#1 Turner and Hooch Fan

@TurnerandDouche

Hey my gaggle of goofy gigglin gamers, my question is do you think that my copies of Turner and Hooch on VHS I ordered are stuck on the big boat in the suez canal? I ordered 51000 copies.

Zion Grassl

@ZionDood

What are your hopes for the new Resident Evil movie? I’m personally hoping it’s more focused on the horror of surviving the Raccoon City outbreak than the overall action of killing zombies.

#1 50 Cent Blood on the Sand fan

@curtiscent2

Kratos, Master Chief, Lara Croft, and Baby G-Unit (G is for Grogu. Always has been baby !) were all added to Fortnite in the last few months. 

When do you think 50 Cent is getting added?

Otto Kratky

@Otto_Kratky

Any PS3/Vita games are y’all scrambling to get? I’m trying to nab a PS3 now so I can get the R&C collection. Can’t beat the originals!

Alejandro Pizaña

@alekspizana

Is there any info on what’s gonna happen once the Stores close?. Will we be able to download our games afterwards?. Do you think it’s a good idea to get anything quickly before it closes?. What are you guys going to do with your own PS3’s – if you have any?
