Listener Questions

Vaughn Hyde
Do you think you’ll play in first or third person in the new Indiana Jones game? While Machine Games showed they’re fantastic at making first-person shooters with Old Blood and New Colossus. I think the IJ license would be somewhat misused in first person.

#1 Kingdom Hearts Fan
Hey there, u shud talk more about Kingdom Hearts. Who cares aboot Xbox? Indiana Jones issss old.

Btw, Chris is not the #1 Kingdom Hearts fan. I am! Poser!

Hey there, THE #1 Kingdom Hearts fan here, important question coming up. How much Cheetos do you think you can put in Sora’s shoes? 

bonus: do you think Joseph can sign my keyblade? Thanks, bye.

also, idk who this 

@TurnerandDouche

 guy is, but he sounds lame. like, really lame. he seems like one of those guys that want to see The Mighty Ducks in Kingdom Hearts.

#1 Turner and Hooch Fan

If a train is traveling at 65 mph and it takes 1hr and 39 minutes to completely watch Turner and Hooch, how many times can I watch T&H on a train trip from Boston to Dallas?

Yeah, I got a question guys: is it bad to inflate my ass with helium?

Andrew McMahon

Is Game Pass still the best deal in gaming as of the recent Xbox live price increase?

Nvm, I see Josh talked to his people and laid the hammer down

Josh Broadwell

If Resident Evil 6 used the same gameplay/story formula but just focused on one narrative instead of several, do you think it would have been received better?

Hatsube

Do yall drink hot tea and if so what flavor?

Steve Vegvari

Is a Pop Tart a ravioli?

Zac LaRocque-Walker

Do you think the Capcom teasers mean we will see a resident evil 4 remake shown off this month? Releases in October? Also, how many times have you all bought it? I got it on GameCube, wii, xbox one and ps4 thus far.

Jake Free

What about the marketing for hitman suggests that it’s a wacky sandbox type. I’ve always thought that it was a straight up secret agent type game like 007 and never thought otherwise until I heard podcasts like yours talking about the Hitman 3.

Kevin except really fast

I salute the nod to Resident Evil 6!

Listener Questions

Bella, Associate Editor / The Gamer

If Konami really did offer up a next-gen MGS remake that looked cool and had a good team behind it, would you be on board or nah?

#1 Turner and Hooch fan / The world’s #1 fan of Turner and Hooch

Hey, #1 Turner and Hooch fan here. What are your thoughts on a pizza covered in fruity pebbles? Do you think it would make for a rockin’ good time? Would it concrete my popularity among the cool kids? Or do you think it would just be good for stoners?
