Episode 213- Debating Addictive Games

The crew is running a little short on chatter about games they've played recently. Mostly because things have just been crazy for everyone lately! One of the few things everyone did get to try out was Deep Rock Galactic. Basically, it's dwarves and awesomeness. The big topic this week is Fortnite and its addictive nature. Is it too addictive? Are parents being to lazy? Is there a better way to monitor how much time people spend on a game? Do we need that kind of monitoring? Things get pretty lively as the discussion goes on. The new Red Dead Redemption trailer definitely caught some eyes this week. One of the endings of Life is Strange is being expanded via a comic. And Grif is still having a crazy time playing Far Cry 5, which you can watch on her YouTube channel! (Link below!) All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!
