Listener Questions

Josh from Indie Pod — Relevant question: Do you think the Mario game timed exclusives actually mean something bigger for Nintendo or are they just stirring up some unnecessary hype?

Not Relevant Question: What’s that one embarrassing story about yourself that your parents always want to tell others.

Even more not relevant question: If you were a type of cheese, what type would you be?

Jaymes Smith — Tiddies

#1 Turner and Hooch fan — Another hot ask comin your way gamers: do you think we will get a remastered Burger King games trilogy for next gen?

I would play a next gen game that plays like Dead Space that’s set in an abandoned burger king corporate office. Imagine it featuring you sneaking around trying to uncover where they went horribly wrong in their marketing that led to the king being axed from commercial spots.

Listener Questions

#1 Turner and Hooch fan

@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?

Indie Pod 

What are your opinions on shadow drops? From a games media perspective and a hobbyist standpoint.
