Cesar Pelafox: With the game streaming future being possible on the horizon, how much would you pay a month to get access to all games released each month?

Emmett Watkins Jr.: So as the biggest Titanfall 2 fan in the tri-state area, Apex Legends has me conflicted. I really dig the game, but the fact we won’t get a proper TF3 for longer now makes me sad. Have you all ever found yourself in a similar situation with a dev leaving a popular franchise?

Chase Williams: I often feel like I am “trapped” in my surroundings when online. As if I can’t break out of a specific cohort of people or interact with new faces, perspectives, and topics. How do you guys keep your social experience fresh online and expose yourself to new ideas and lifestyles?

Ed: How bad is Jump Force going to be?

Chris Nelson: On the subject of “okay“ games, have either of you guys played 25 To Life for Xbox and PS2? It was GTA five before its time.  Also, Marc Ecko’s Getting Up vs. 50 Cent: Bulletproof?

Barrett Courtney: 1. When we squading up?
2. What is your dream Star Wars game?
3. Out of the four big games coming out on Friday, what are you going to play first/most of?

Ryan Othman:  You both comprise two thirds of an Apex Legends squad as yourselves (not an Apex Legend) in that universe. Which legend fills out your squad and why?

Zachary Davis: Now that both Activision and EA have entered the battle royale space, how quickly do you think Ubisoft will also enter that market? What form might their battle royale game take? Will it be a completely new IP, or will it piggyback off one of their existing franchises?

StarWitch asks, “Sell me on gamer chairs.  I don’t understand what’s different than a normal comfy chair.”

Drew asks, “Should the Battlefront series been treated as a game as a service title from the start like R6 Siege instead of putting out a controversial sequel and then treating it like a games as a service?”

Zachary Davis asks, “Which title will we see first from the new Sony/Insomniac relationship: Spider-Man 2 or a new Ratchet & Clank?”

Cameron Abbot asks, “We all know you love gamer feet. But what particularly are you into? Toes? The heels? The lil arch? More gamer feets talk.”

AJ McRae asks, “Do you think Spider-Man leaving the MCU will affect Marvel Games’ collaborations with PlayStation at all? Would they attempt to sandbag Spider-Man in other mediums like they seem to do with other non-MCU properties?”

Alexandru asks, “Memes and jokes aside, where are each of you on Death Stranding? In? Out? What in the fuck is going on? ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY! Furthermore, what do you anticipate the reception to this game to be? What if it isn’t great. What do you anticipate the backlash to be for this?”

Xyger asks, “Why did people wait 2 hours to see Norman Reedus Pee, then fulfill his life long dream of being an Amazon delivery man to Geoff Keighley, and then fall off a cliff? Also do you think the rocking of the controller to calm the BB is optional?”

Chris Nelson asks, “Here’s the sitch: Your local community theater is being closed by Jeff Bezos unless you can raise the money to save it. You have one chance: Put on a Broadway musical of any video game franchise. Which game is it gonna be, which famous actor will you recruit, and will it succeed?”
