Listener Questions (Tweet Us or Email Hello@OKBeast.com):
Emmett Watkins asks, “I’ve gotten a lot of Ratchet and Clank vibes from gameplay footage of Journey to the Savage Planet, how justified is that comparison?”
Sarah Squid asks, “People say PlayStation will launch PS5 with one amazing title, but PlayStation historically has never launched with a big title. Even the PS4’s big exclusive was Killzone, & it was so lackluster people forget the game exist. Do you REALLY think PS5 will launch with something big?”
Paul Warren asks, “Do you think GTA V will come to Nintendo Switch?”
Alex Felker asks, “Do you foresee dreams disrupting the entry game development space. Expanding, because dreams has such a low barrier to entry do you think this will allow more people to find in-routes to the industry.”
Ryan Othman asks, “Blizzard continues to fascinate me. With Rod on Diablo, has your excitement increased, decreased, or been unchanged? Personally, my excitement is unchanged. I have been burned in the past and will be awaiting review scores no matter what.”
Xyger asks, “With the success of Outer Worlds (2 million copies sold) do you think after Obsidian releases Grounded, they’ll work on a sequel, or develop another open world RPG from the ground up exclusively for Xbox? If Outer Worlds 2 is a thing, does it stay multiplatform?”
