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!

Episode 173- Early E3: So Much Goodness!

This week (and probably next week as well) is all about E3! We record on Sundays, so we got to chat about everything that had been shown off up until the Microsoft conference. So much to talk about & debate about! Will EA be awesome with Star Wars Battlefront 2 & free DLC or will microtransactions sell power? Shadow of War has a new trailer and lots of new things to be excited about. There are ads for The Evil Within 2 on Reddit. Will Bethesda announce a sequel at their presser? (Spoiler, YES! Evil Within 2 is confirmed for October.) Oak's excited about the new FIFA. Microsoft announced that Project Scorpio will be called the Xbox One X. Will Bioware's new IP, Anthem, give Destiny a run for its money? All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 169- Asymmetrical Horror, Over Due Fixes, & Colonizing Mars

Grif, Chicken, & Baka had some nostalgic fun with Left 4 Dead. Did Grif claim the top spot for most friendly fire? Oak's back and he's had time to finish a few games! Everyone's itching to play an asymmetrical horror survival game but they can't decide which one to buy.  Deceit, Dead by Daylight, and Friday the 13th all look soooo good. Time to debate the options! In the news, there's talk of a new Assassin's Creed game based on a few screen shots and rumors. Will the new AC return to the roots of the series? Speaking of Ubisoft, the developer is looking to fix a few things for Rainbow Six: Siege. It only came out over a year ago, good thing they're getting around to that... Square Enix is planning to sell IO, the developer behind the Hitman series. The developers of Tropico announced a new game in which players will be tasked with colonizing Mars. And apparently Dead Island 2 isn't as dead as we'd thought. Will the game see the light of day soon? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 160- The Switch, The Sequels, & The Kickback

Oak's back from his vacation with a few stories to share. Chicken ignored Baka to run off and play a single player game. And Grif is getting her whole family into gaming now! In the news, there's lots you can't do with your new Nintendo Switch. For all of it's issues, the Switch is still a pretty strong new console. The crew shares stories about their previous console mishaps. The sequel to Shadow of Mordor, Shadow of War(dor), has been anounced! Destiny 2 is on the way but there's not much making the jump over from the first game in respects to player characters. Xbox has a new rental program on the way, but is it worth the ten bucks a month? Twitch is looking to offer streamers a little monetary kickback if their viewers buy games straight from their Twitch pages. And Blizzard might have over-tweaked Overwatch's Bastion during the last update. He's getting a little ridculous. All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 150- Patching Dynasty Mistakes

Chicken finally got his hands on the latest Dynasty Warriors game. And then he immediately made the biggest in game mistake possible... Baka has new models to paint for his Blood Bowl board game. Steam implements an award system and people let them know what game they wanted next via a crowd created award category. Then we figure out how Valve could single-handedly manage world peace... Or world war. You know, whichever. Outlast 2 is now accompanied by a ridiculous crowdfunding project with a puny name. The third season of TellTale's Walking Dead game has a release date. In Overwatch news, Symetra got a rework that gave her two ultimates.  After a viral video this week, there's a discussion on game journalism and what it's lacking. And finally, Hello Games have broken radio silence and launched a big patch for No Man's Sky that will hopefully implement some missing features from the game. Is it enough to placate the disgruntled players? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 149- Floppy Watchdog Assassins

This week the crew might be short one member, but that's not slowing them down! Baka and Chicken talk new Starbound adventures. Baka's upset about the SNES. Grif is being forced to play Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Ubisoft thought it'd be a good idea to put a vagina in Watchdogs 2. Turns out that's not such a bright idea. Assassin's Creed is wrapping up plots in a comic because that's worked so well for other games... The new TellTale Batman episode is out soon. And PS4 finally gets mods for Fallout 4!

Episode 140- Assassin’s Stranding

While Oak's on vacation, Chicken, Grif, and Baka hold things down on the show! Chicken's been shiny hunting in Pokemon. He's had the game for days and still hasn't even started actually playing the game! Grif's in love with Bioshock all over again. The remastered collection came out on Tuesday and she can't stop fawning over it. Speaking of remasters, Ubisoft finally officially announced The Ezio Collection. There was quite a bit of Blizzard/Warcraft news to talk about just ahead of BlizzCon. A retirement, an upstart, and some hidden goodies top the Blizz stories. Kojima talked a little more about Death Stranding. "A little" is pretty accurate considering he didn't give away much more than everyone already know. Oh and now Kojima's got a cartoon drawn of him and some buddies that everyone's sure to recognize. Why? Because... Kojima? Sure, let's go with that. All of this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 131- Pokemon, Assassins, and Team Kills

Oak's missing this week, but Chicken, Baka, and Grif keep things moving just fine without him. Pokemon Go is everywhere and even the IR crew have been sucked into the madness! Chicken may or may not have gotten a new phone specifically to play the addictive new game with. People are siting Pokemon Go as the reason for injuries, property damage, and more. Certain locales are asking to be removed as PokeStops, turns out there's a form you have to fill out and everything. Since there's little in the news, Grif and Baka talk about their Let's Play escapades. Apparently Baka is just a figment of Grif's imagination in Let's Play: Halo Combat Evolved. He's also working on take Grif's crown as Queen (or King, in his case) of Team Kills. Grif finally got to sit down with Assassin's Creed: Syndicate. While Ubisoft improved on some things between Unity and Syndicate, there are still some things that aren't quite right. Chicken has a hard time finding anything he likes about the game so he spends some time pointing out things that are "wrong" with the game in his opinion. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 123- FPS Master Race Movie

This week our hosts can not stop laughing! Grif giggles and the whole world giggles with her, apparently. Oak and Chicken have both been playing DOOM so they have plenty of stories to swap. Grif is still in love with the vast amounts of destruction in Just Cause 3. She might have been a bit overzealous about taking a base this time, airstrikes be damned! Overwatch is just around the corner and the crew are so excited! Blizzard just published the last Hero video before the launch and it featured Soldier: 76. Chicken and Grif try to figure out who the second hero was supposed to be in the video. Lots of theories to work through here. Chicken corners Grif on why PC Master Race is a thing and Oak tries to correlate that into a real life scenario. It doesn't work. There are several video game movies on the horizon, but no one is sure how they will actually manage a plot. Tetris is supposed to be a sci-fi thriller and the Fruit Ninja movie... There's no real word on that one, but everyone theorizes what it will be about. Resident Evil 7 is in the news again, this time because of the designer they're bringing in to work on it. Grif and Baka talk about their latest Let's Play exploits then Chicken explains how Grif killed Baka with a grunt... All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 110- Disappointing Quantum Fallout

This week Oak is out of town and the remaining hosts get a little out of hand. Regardless of the antics, they still manage to talk plenty of gaming goodness! Grif's Fallout 4 addiction is about to get worse with the announcement of season pass DLC content. Chicken played Halo 5 but he isn't impressed with what 343i has done with one of his favorite series. The industry is leaning heavily toward multiplayer overtaking single player in popularity which started an interested discussion. DLC is getting expensive, but is some of it worth it? Microsoft is attempting to make the Quantum Break on PC news better by mentioning you can only get it from the MS store. That doesn't really help, MS. Chicken is looking forward to playing Far Cry Primal this week. We will hopefully also have the new website up this week! Good news all around! All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 109- Primal Watch_Dogs Arguments

This week FNAF gets a toy series and the RPG, FNAF World, is back! Ubisoft is gearing up for an interesting year with Far Cry Primal right around the corner and Watch_Dogs 2 announced for 2017. At least they're giving Assassin's Creed a break this year! There's a Sonic movie on the way but should we really be looking forward to it? Quantum Break is coming to PC and everyone is losing their mind over it. For $10MIL you can be in the upcoming Dying Light movie. Oh and you get the game and DLC and some other stuff, too. All this and MUCH more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 106- Not-So-Stealthy Head Crabs

Tech issues continue to plague the IR crew and it eventually causes Oak to drop from the show this week. Our hosts chat about everything from Chicken's new adventure with Grim Dawn to Nintendo's Seal of Excellence. Baka found a Cthulhu board game that he's pretty excited about. Grif and Baka finally test out Assassin's Creed Unity's multiplayer. It's not that great. No matter how good the multiplayer could have been, nothing can fix Grif's complete failure when it comes to stealth. Grif gets to be the hero for her ARK tribe. Chicken's excited about the re-release of Resident Evil Zero but the number scheme confuses Grif. Baka and Chicken decided to try out Star Wars Battlefront. There are rumors of GTA V story DLC again. Valve approved a fan-made Half Life add on. It comes to light that Grif's never played any of the Half Life series and Baka shares his thoughts on head crabs. Brooklyn gets cut from The Division. eSports finally has its own section on the ESPN website. Is Halo extreme enough to warrant its place at the X-Games this year? All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 95- Annualized Nostalgia Patches

This week Oak's still grinding. We told him to stop that, but he just doesn't listen. The IR ARK crew got a few new dinos for free! Too bad poor planning led to one of the new dinos' death. Grif's still working on Silent Hill Downpour. Gary is her new stalker. Why does he want so many hugs?!?! Grif's also stuck in Just Cause 2. She's usually so good with mass destruction! Japan's getting their first Pokemon Gym which is exciting news to some of the crew. Bethesda's making a Fallout beer but it may not be so great. Day One patches are becoming the new norm but is that a good thing? Both Assassin's Creed Syndicate and Halo 5 come with sizable day one patches. Will Far Cry be the next franchise Ubisoft pushes toward annualization? Konami seems confused about Kojima's employment status. Baka starts talking about nostalgic Konami games like old school Castlevainia. The crew tries to convince Grif to play Five Nights At Freddy's for Halloween but she is not having it.

Episode 93- Overly Attached Haystack

This week Chicken talks League of Legends and their Worlds tournament. The guys bring Grif into the world of ARK. She's not having the easiest time so everyone theorizes on how to help her. Oak picked up The Uncharted Collection this week. He then promptly lost track of time and stayed up playing until the wee hours of the morning. Speaking of having issues, Grif started Assassin's Creed Rogue and then immediate got stuck with a bug. Awesome. Our hosts discuss ideas for Halloween streams and Grif agrees to pick up SOMA for the event. Ubisoft announced Far Cry Primal with a ridiculously long and pointless stream. Will the game dialog be in English? Everyone tosses around theories on the language, the weapons, and more about this upcoming caveman game. Microtransactions will be making their way to Destiny, Rise of the Tombraider, and Halo 5, but is that ok? The final episode of Tales from the Borderlands gets a release date and Grif is super excited about it. Speaking of release dates, Darksiders 2: The Deathfinitive Edition also has a launch date! Why does Konami hate people? Our host speculate on who they might consider selling the Fox engine to if they ever let it go. Somehow the train wreck that was Duke Nukem Forever got brought up. Things get a little heated when Halo 5 comes up. All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn!

Grif and Chicken have both played Mortal Kombat X and one of them broke their controller doing so! Divinty Original Sin 2 meets all of its Kickstarter stretch goals before the goal rewards are even announced! This sequel is set to make some drastic changes and Baka and Chicken couldn't be happier! A Borderlands movie is the work so our host chat about game-to-movie adaptations both good and bad. They also take a look at the first image of Michael Fassbender in the upcoming Assassin's Creed movie. Why do gamers enjoy watching streams? Jimmy Kimmel thinks this is dumb, but our hosts and chat have other thoughts. Grif talks being scared and everyone lobbies for her to play more Five Nights at Freddy's.

Episode 75- XCOM Fallout Collection

This week Bossa Studios announces I Am Bread's launch on PS4 with a rap song. It's... interesting. Grif started Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. No really, she's playing CoD. She shares what she likes about it and what she thinks they could have done better. Of course she also gets to talk about Troy Baker, but you everyone saw that coming.

The first inductees to the Video Game Hall of Fame have been announced. The Nathan Drake Collection is headed to PS4 this holiday season but not everyone is excited. Grif talks about her extremes in gameplay. Square Enix is working on rendering food that looks so real you can taste it. Because priorities, right? The thing everyone really wants to talk about: Bethesda announced Fallout 4! People are already up in arms about it's graphics and lack of plot. Isn't it a little early for that kind of thing? XCOM2 was also announced! Our hosts are confused about E3 dates, but they get it straightened out in the end. Black Tusk Studios is now The Coalition. Will the name change hurt them in the long rung? Oak offers to let Boss Key Productions head Cliff "Cliffy B" Bleszinski punch him in the face. Why? Reasons! Steam is now offering refunds on games purchased through the platform.
