Ryan Marshall asks, “What’s the most recent video game sin you’ve committed?”
Ryan Othman asks, “Real talk, now that there are some hot and heavy Paper Mario 2020 rumors out there. I ask again, what are the odds Paper Mario gets into smash? Shut me down again, Ian, I dare you!”
Zachary Davis asks, “When last generation began in 2013, they notably lacked 4K HDMI ports that are standard today. The Xbox One doesn’t support Bluetooth, and the PS4 family doesn’t support UHD discs. What kind of modern or upcoming tech do you feel should be included in the upcoming consoles?”
Xyger asks, “With the tons of games delays, studio crunch stories, and advances in tech, do you think we’ll start seeing less game announcements with release windows? I understand announcing a date is great for pre-orders, but every delay means months of added crunch.
Do you think game studios can continue with this workload going into the next console generation? Games are taking longer to make, and we as an industry know crunch exist, but can’t do anything when the 7th game of 2020 gets delayed. Why can’t games get announced without a date?”
Eduardo Santana asks, “Are you more excited for Nioh 2 or Ghost of Tsushima?”
Frankie Godoy asks, “What delayed 2020 game are you still hyped about?”
