Episode 192- Massive Maps, Lawsuits, & EA Everywhere

This week Baka's MIA but Grif's had enough caffeine to make up for the missing person. Chicken's been very tactical all week, from his four man chicken dinner in PUBg to the coordination required for Squad, he's been very militant. Is Grif too good at Cities: Skylines? And Oak's been testing the waters in Assassin's Creed Origins. In the news, EA's mentioned not launching a new FIFA every year. Speaking of EA, guess who bought Respawn, the devs behind Titanfall... Remember that loot cave exploit from the first Destiny? Yeah there might be something similar in Destiny 2. Is the loot system just that unrewarding that farming a cave is more fun than playing the game?  TellTale just laid off a quarter of their staff. What does that mean for the future of the studio and what led to this massive staffing cut to start with? And Activision is being sued for using the Humvee logo in Call of Duty games. CoD, by the way, has been using the logo/vehicle since the first Modern Warfare. So... a decade. Yeah.  All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 191- Paris Games Week and BlizzCon!

As you can likely guess from the title, this week's show is mainly about Paris Games Week & BlizzCon news! Before we dive into that, though, Oak's got plenty of gaming to talking about. He's been pretty busy lately with AC Origins, Mario Odyssey, & more! In the news, SO MUCH GOODNESS! A new trailer for Detroit: Become Human, news about a new Overwatch hero, and lots of Sony VR, so exciting! For all you Warcraft fans, the next big expansion was announced and Vanilla WoW servers were confirmed at BlizzCon! We couldn't be more ecstatic! So much epic news this week, the show actually ran a little long! Enjoy!

Episode 190- Let’s Break It Down (Down The Well)

This week Chicken and Baka just got into the Dauntless beta and had a lot of run playing that. Has Baka already finished the South Park game? And how did he get stuck in an infinite combat loop? Grif hasn't been able to play much this week, but her sister did finish Uncharted 4! Since she enjoyed the heavy story so much, Grif had her start Final Fantasy XV. Will there be loads of crying? We'll find out! There was a clutch play in Overwatch that has the crew all excited. And Chicken has decided it'd be fun to stream Dark Souls 3. He hates himself. In the news, Chicken is lamenting the canning of the Resident Evil TV show that had been in the works. Nintendo managed to sneak in the use of GameCube controllers for the Switch with the latest update. Microsoft has officially axed the Kinect. Everyone isn't rejoicing in the streets. Wait, what's going on here? And then the big topic for the week: Is AAA single player dead? Are developers more interested in the mountains of cash multiplayer games can bring in as opposed to the single buy of solo campaigns? We'd love to know what you think about this topic! Does Nintendo even care about the topic of single player vs multiplayer or do they have their own corner of the market where that question doesn't matter? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 189- Loot Box Plague

Oak's back! He's got lots to talk about on the gaming front, too! Baka's been playing the new South Park game. Is it as offensive as the last one?  Chicken's playing Prey finally and his experience is pretty different from Grif's playthrough. And Grif has introduced her sister to her newest addiction: Uncharted. In the news: LOOT BOXES! Seriously, so much loot box news. Some games have too man, others seem to be doing better with the pseudo gambling. Who is trying to be better and who is on the opposite end of the spectrum? And seriously, did someone patent a system to essentially push microtransactions and loot boxes on you in a kind of underhanded manner? Yeah. They did... EA shutters Visceral, surprising many. What happens to the Star Wars game they were working on now? And there's a new dating sim in the news. Next year you'll be able to dungeon crawl and then date the weapons you find in said dungeon. Because... reasons! Boyfriend Dungeon, just what the hell is it?! All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 188- Petting Cats, Missing Diablo, and Speed Running RPGs

Oak's away, but Grif, Chicken, and Baka have plenty to chat about! Baka's been cheesing fights in Dragon Ball Xenoverse. When he's not being cheap in fighting games, Baka's been filling his week with multiplayer stuff like Fortnite's Battle Royale mode and Minion Masters with Chicken. Chicken finished Horizon Zero Dawn and was seriously impressed. Then he turned to something a little less serious for his gaming needs. Grif introduced her sister to the Uncharted series and she's set out on her own in Divinity: Original Sin 2. In the news: Will cheaters prosper in Fortnite? Will PUBg fix their servers and find a way to hold on to their ever-growing player base? Can you speed run Divinity 2? Can you pet the cats in the upcoming Assassin's Creed game? Will Blizzard ever announce another bit of Diablo content? And how is that TellTale managed to slip a real dead body into the latest Batman episode? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!
