Piping hot Q here for Joseph: why is THE_BERRY a stone cold killer?

Zac LaRocque-Walker (@zaclw)

What does Sony have to do to convince you to buy a ps5?

GhostintheGlass (@ghostintheglass)

What Prince of Persia remake would you prefer? Sands of Time or giving PoP 2008 a second chance/sequel? 

Connor Ewing (@connoerewing)

I’m personally having trouble with being excited for any of Ubisoft’s upcoming titles (even Immortals, which I’ve been anticipating) given their consistent mishandling of the systemic workplace abuse/toxicity situation. Is this something you guys are feeling as well? Thanks!

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.
