Listener Questions

#1 Turner and Hooch fan – Will the “and more” section cover the 1989 box office hit film Turner and Hooch? If so, my question is why the heck haven’t they made a sequel called Turner and 2-ch?!

Listener Questions

The Jorsh – Why do you think the Switch got screwed over with Crash 4?

Jason Courtar – Now that Pokémon is entering the MOBA sphere, what other genre would you like to see the franchise tackle?

Michael Cwick -Thoughts on Twitch finally stepping up and issuing perma bans? Do you have faith in Twitch to keep this up or will they continue to let their platform be a place for abusers and hate speech? If that’s too depressing of a conversation? Is pineapple pizza the worst or the worst?

Hatsube: Here’s a question. Why would you watch a movie in fortnite? Sounds like a terrible idea.

Kaitlyn Red Wing – With the movie night in Fortnite and the previous Marshmellow concert, do you think Fortnite is working on implementing VR into its platform to further amplify those experiences and if so what does that mean for the future of entertainment/VR?
