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
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!
