Listener Questions

Jake AKA Creamydave

When do you think the average person will have no issues getting a PS5?

Andrew McMahon

What is your favorite sports video game of all time. Also, did you ever enjoy them because you felt like you where living the dream of a pro athlete vicariously through playing it?

#1 Turner and Hooch Fan

Hey gamers, I have to say, I’m looking forward to the day I have enough copies of Turner and Hooch on vhs that I can build a gaming throne out of them. My question for you is this: if I stick a controller up my ass, will I become a peripheral? Asking for scientific reasons.

Sabrina Rei

Rocket league is basically soccer with cars, what other sports mashups do you think could potentially work?

#1 50 Cent Blood on the Sand Fan

alright so you know I need to ask 

do you think Resident Evil 8 will have 50 Cent in it? Obviously as like a cosmetic DLC because the game would be over almost immediately if you were playing as 50 Cent.

Joseph Yaden

Were y’all as confused as I was when you you first heard Combustion by Meshuggah? It has this hi-hat countdown in the intro that sounds like it’s off beat…but it couldn’t be. It’s Meshuggah, after all. Turns out, the song starts on the upbeat, making it sound like the hi-hat…

..count-in is off time — but it’s not. If you play the entire intro sequence with a metronome and start it on the downbeat before the song actually starts, the hi-hat countdown will make sense and will be absolutely 100% on time.

Listener Questions

Andrew McMahon

@McMahon_BearPig

Did you guys watch any debut anime from 2020? If so which ones stood out for you?

Wesley LeBlanc

@LeBlancWes

If you could have one Nintendo game release this year — could be one we know about, a dream game, a remake, anything — what would it be?

Hard mode: for that game to release, BOTW2 must never release. Would you still want your pick to come out?

David W. #ConMenRDW

@DaveedRDW

I recently started using my *NEW* 3DS again after years of it being in a drawer and I’m just astounded how well designed the UI was for it. 

Q: Do you think Nintendo will FINALLY add some kind of personality (themes or ANYTHING) to the Switch in 2021?

Additionally, what would you want?

#1 Turner and Hooch Fan

TurnerandDouche

Yeah, I got a question: how much cooked spaghetti do you think it would take to fill the hole I dug in my backyard?

How do they fit an entire jet inside of those marshmallows they sell at the store?
