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
00:32:15 - Do you think with Pokemon Let's Go being on a console with an actual online infrastructure, we'll get bigger and more significant DLC than simple Mystery Gift Pokemon? - Tybo215
00:34:45 - Is it me or is there a lack of African Americans in the gaming industry's main outlets? I would love to see more perspectives from people of color not just African Americans where should I look? - Black Caesar
00:39:45 - Why are so many of the KFG Showcase news being posted on news outlets without mention of the event? - Braulio
00:40:55 - Why does Kinda Funny give away games during the Morning Show, and not during KFGD? - Tiziano "tee-zee-ah-no"
00:43:20 - Listening to all the Tetris effect and beat saber talk got me jacked to buy a VR unit. During the discussion, Kevin mentioned he was playing beat saber on oculus but you have been using the PSVR unit. I’d love to hear your guys thoughts on the different platforms - Alex

It is not that I want the game to have massive issues at launch but from years of working in IT I know there is going to be a hic-up or two and the only mentions I saw in the IGN wiki guide and the blue screen errors mentioned in the kinda funny games cast. Is this a sign that the game launched better than Anthem or did Ubi know how to spin the PR having dealt with the bad launch of The Division 1? - Borzen00 (Bore-zen Zero Zero)00:55:15 - How you all receive codes for games? - MiKennedy01:00:10 - Squad Up: Jon(Podcasting) - @Swanja31101:01:00 - You‘re WrongTomorrow’s host:Greg and Tim (RIP Dave Lang)

But, unlike what we would have expected, the game isn’t only going to be sold on the Microsoft store, but also on Steam. With this move, along with the rumors of Game Pass coming to the Switch and with Project XCloud bringing XBox games to mobile, it seems like Microsoft isn’t very interested on controlling the platforms in which it releases its games. Taking this into account, coupled with the fact that the XBox One hasn’t been selling all that much, how likely do you think it is that XBox will just become a third-party developer? - Ignacio Rojas00:22:40 - Borderlands 3!00:24:35 Best Friend Q. - Question whether or not we really need another Borderlands - Alex Russ (Zero Syndicate)00:29:52 Best Friend Q. - Conspiracy theorist Gearbox Software/Xbox - ReclusiveDragon00:32:01 - Jade Raymond Joins Google Gaming, GIB00:34:20 - SEGA Judgement, Sal Romano @ Gematsu00:38:12 - Brendan Greene Speaks!00:42:00 - RUMOR: Sony in talks to buy Take Two00:52:25 - Hims00:53:25 - Out todayReader mail -00:55:30 - When we do get to an all digital future, people say the digital prices will fall, like we saw on pc, but with consoles only having one store front what incentive does the console manufacturers have to actually lower the prices on the games? - Style6501:04:25 - Squad Up: Jonathan Dixon (Xbox) - ZombieJonDixon01:06:26 - You‘re WrongTomorrow’s host:

Do you feel like this is a half step of "hey, this Vita software work on iOS, let's throw it up there.

I wondering if you experienced any of this with your time on the beta and of course your opinions on the game? - Alan Kuhlemier00:35:05 - The Division 2's game director Julian Gerighty addressed a major concern from the first Division, bullet sponge enemies. He said "You're going to kill enemies much faster, but they're going to kill you much faster too, which really puts the emphasis on cover-based gameplay." This was my biggest problem with the original Division, some of the heavies took forever to kill. Greg, you've spent a lot of time hands-on now, do you think this problem has been adequately solved?

I'm happy to see that this content is arriving in a free update which helps to not gate out players from new ways to play. However, they're still selling a $40 season pass to allow access a week early to this content, additionally immediate access to specializations. Now I'm not one to complain about a free addition to a game I'm going to love. But it seems to me there really isn't too much incentive to get the season pass.
