00:29:15 - With the impending release of kingdom hearts 3, it seems like the marketing by square is nowhere near what it was for final fantasy 15, even though I think this game has the potential to be much bigger. It seems like there may not even be dlc for the game, and there is no movie, anime, car, etc. Why do you think this is the case? Where you guys approached by square to do another big presentation like you did for final fantasy? - Triss

I was wondering if you had any scoops for us ahead of today's Direct. - LearnedAstronomer
00:41:12 - I have a prediction for what might show up in the Nintendo Direct later today: Spyro Reignited. That aside, I personally think it's high-time that we get a port of Super Mario 3D World and an enhanced port of Super Mario Maker with the campaign from the 3DS version. I could even see Nintendo making a special cable that runs from the Switch to the Dock so that the Switch can function like the Wii U. What do you guys think? - Kbabz

I know you cannot anticipate how well a game will launch when you are doing these events, but on a personal level, how does it feel to be associated with these games, after the fact. Do you ever regret the decision?”
00:56:30 - Sean Heffernan - “last week when you talked about potential 2019 game of the year contenders, you did not even once mention the juggernaut that is kingdom hearts 3. Why?”
00:57:50 - Squad Up: Rupert - “I just wanted to see if there were any KF best friends in Australia who missed out on a Kingdom Hearts 3 PS4 Pro. I have an extra pre order that I can sell to someone at retail so they can avoid paying the $1000+ they are selling for on eBay. Just thought I'd see rather than try and make a quick buck or cancel the order. Melbourne area would be preferred otherwise I'd have to post it. @ruinedunation on twitter if someone is keen. Get hype, January 29th.”
