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.

Andrew McMahon

Do you think this is the start of a connective video game universe for Star Wars?

#1 Turner and Hooch Fan
How big is an infinite halo? How the fuck do they plan on fitting the game on the disc?

#1 Kingdom Hearts Fan

@Greysun Morales

Do you guys think that we’ll eventually get a Cuphead 2? And if so, what platforms will it come to and when will it release?

@Turneranddouche

Hey fellow gamin gurus, hot stinky q for ya: is it wrong for me to stuff the turkey with my feet for Thanksgiving?

Josh Nichols

@itsjerkjersh

hey long listener but first time question 

would you be down with PS+ and Games with Gold ditching monthly games and making Now/Game Pass even better? It seems like people are less focused on ownership and more focused on availability and value for services now anyway

Michael Cwick

@The1stMJC

With Microsoft, Sony and now Embracer buying all these studios

Do you worry the gaming industry is turning into a game of monopoly like the film industry where only a handful of companies own all the studios?

What happens if these parent companies give up on gaming in 10 years?

I’m always worried when Google or Amazon acquire a studio because they can throw in the towel with little notice or care.

#1 50 Cent Blood on the Sand Fan

@CurtisCent2

hey gamers 

got a bottle full of bub and an important question for you all 

do you think 50 Cent Blood on the Sand is Bluepoint’s next remaster?
