  • Why Quantum break was took this much delayed?
  • Cool I have no ideas lol Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • How much episodes in Quantum Break TV series?
  • PS VR pre-orders sold out in 1 hour. Any VR coming to Xbox? Hololence capability?  
  • How many?10?15?have you seen how dumb are its few games? ****** motion games with a screen on your face...oh and low end graphics lol anyway xbox has a partnership with oculus, but personally not interested in vr, where is the r/evolution? In gaming with the same pad with a screen at 2cm from your eyes alienating yourself from the world? Hololens seems more revolutionary to me, a whole new way of interaction.
  • Can we get an easter-egg /dlc to be able to replay the game (after we finish it the first time) to play with the iconic sam's lake angry face from the first max payne? or some allan wake easter eggs to hype us up for a future release of an Allan Wake 2 game? thaks :)
  • If you like Alan Wake easter eggs, Quantum Break is the game for you!
  • Hey Jez and Matt this is my first podcast with you guys and i must say its nice to hear something that does not feel scripted and I love that it is focused on Xbox and MS, i will definately be coming back to this. Ok questions, First off so in your podcast you spoke about Republic Commando (I still go back and play this game its awesome), me and my buddie talk about this all the time but how would you guys feel about a remake with 4 player co-op or do you think a classic should be left alone. My second question is that you spoke about resolution and the whole 1080p thing, i am 100% with you that a game does not need to be hitting 60fps and 1080p every time and does not mean its going to be a bad game, so my question is how does the average gamer even tell the difference because i sure as hell cant see it and at what point is this even noticeable say if you wernt told that a game was running at two different resolutions but you are not told which is which.  
  • Thanks for listening dude. :) Entered you into the giveaway, good questions.
