A Questionable Drive


Alex Buendia: How does discussions of a new xbox console on its way, affect the Xbox One X? As someone who bought an X on day one, I don’t like it.


Nerdish67: Are you still enjoying swan of thieves....errr sea of theives.
What is your initial thoughts of Skull and Bones, and do you think it will be compared to Sea of Thieves?


Kevin Austin: Who wronged Dave in the past and why doesn't he like basically any games? What DOES he like?


Edward Varnell: Xbox and PS4 will fail this holiday. How do either survive this holiday since Nintendo has consistent content of games and these systems have backlog ready made games? Even with good sales, will people get to them right away, around thanksgiving or christmas, or next summer?
