Hey buds, rip roarin question for yas: do you think The Proclaimers would have made that song if they had to walk 1001 miles instead of just 1000? Also, were they, being twins and all, singing about twins? Or did they both want to get with the same girl?

Gamers, how fast would my shit have to be to break the sound barrier? Also, if I managed to do so, would it break my toilet? Thanks in advance!

Plastic Hearts Podcast

With Doom Eternal on Switch scrapping the physical release how long can the base model switch handle these console/PC ports going forward? Will devs just keep squeezing their engines or is there a limit coming soon to what the Switch’s hardware can do?

Josh Nichols

what’s your favorite Zelda game other than Breath of the Wild? Do you think Wind Waker HD will get ported to Switch for Zelda’s anniversary? It’s my favorite Zelda and it belongs on Nintendo’s best system.
