The lights are on
A lot has happened in the world of gaming since our last Reader Mailbag podcast – we've got new systems on the horizon and a ton of great games coming out this fall. If you'd like to ask a question of the GI podcast crew, just leave it in the comments section below. We will answer as many of the sensible (and not-so-sensible) questions as we can.
Email the author Matt Helgeson, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
For your GI's new feature of "Our Take," do you believe that it's necessary to make it mandatory for each and every news headline. Sometimes with things like release dates and such, there isn't much to say that's worthwhile, and I wonder why they always need to be put with a headline instead of more fleshed-out opinion article when its needed.
Have you ever pooped?
Do you guys ever see a future to Red Dead Redemption on next gen systems?
With ubisoft announcing that they are only focusing on games that will turn into franchises, do you see this being more of the norm with big publishers and developers? Do you think the risk of taking a shot with a new IP is something that may fall more into the "indie" developers or smaller studios?
What new IP are you most excited about?
Do you think grand theft auto 5 not being next gen will have a negative impact on next gen sales out of the gate?
Is the Wii U on its way to an increase in quality games similar to the 3DS?
On the podcast you recently had a segment about bad games, I'm curious if you find bad games in some genres more acceptable than others. For example I probably could sit through a bad RPG but I can't stand a mediocre first person shooter. What genres do you feel have more enjoyable bad games?
How do you feel about the focus on second screen experiences for next-gen? I think that as long as it doesn't become a mandatory focus for developers it will be a great addition to give gamers choice in how they play, although it's not really as important as to need every game to have it, at least in my opinion.
What game was the biggest disappointment for you this console generation?

What do you think the fate of the Ouya will be, now that it is released and has had some software developed for it? Do you think the spread of emulation on the Ouya will get it into legal trouble?
What new new system do you think will push the boundaries of the next-gen consoles, and in what way?
Will Dan review any more fart apps with any other developers?
What did you guys think of the GTA V gameplay trailer?
