Episode 196- The Game Awards & Beyond!

The Game Awards were this week. We'll give you one guess as to what a bulk of the show is about... Yep! So many fun things to discuss about this years' show! From crazy passionate creators to just play crazy weirdness, there's no shortage of topics to choose from. Beyond the awards, though, we've got a little bit of news and opinions to share: Destiny 2's locking players out of content with the new DLC, Scott Cawthon stealth launched a new FNAF game, and Fortnite is getting a limited time massive 50V50 mode. All this and MUCH more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 195- Cereal, Loot Boxes, & Star Wars Puns

Grif gets a new PC (mostly), Chicken and Oak played a game together (shocking!), and Baka gets to be a Star Wars nerd. Speaking of Star Wars, guess what's still in the news! More SWBF2 controversy due to EA and their continued argument about needing their microtransactions. Grif makes possibly the best and worst pun of all time while the crew brainstorms better ways for SWBF2 to make money on the side. EA isn't the only company in hot water about microtransactions this week. Hi-Res, the studio behind Paladins, is introducing their own loot box based progression system and it has not be well received. And Nintendo is now getting into the cereal game and simultaneously introducing a new amiibo. The box is the amiibo. Yes really. All this and MUCH more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 194- BEEPBEEP Double Kill

This week everyone's in a nice post-Thanksgiving mood. Ok, "nice" may be a subjective term here. It's a fun show everyone, so buckle up! There's lots of discussion about Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the craziness that follows Thanksgiving. As for games: Grif tried out Little Nightmares even though she's not a fan of platformers. Baka had a great savior play in PUBg. Chicken started Injustice 2 and he has some interesting thoughts on the progression system. And Oak is addicted to Destiny 2. Speaking of D2, the game was in the news this week for some interesting XP fluctuations. A Belgium group has decided the loot box system is gambling and plans to move forward with new laws and structuring. And Epic is suing a 14 year old for Fortnite vidoes he posted on YouTube. All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 193- EA, Gambling, & Greed Wars

There's no shortage of opinions on this week's show! The crew briefly talks about a few minor bits of news and then everything devolves into the Battlefront 2 debacle. The issue was such a bit topic we devoted over half the show to discussing and debating the issues revolving around EA's latest Star Wars game.

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 185- Sheer Divinity, Toxic Jerks, & Copyright Quandaries

Oak's found a new addiction with Rimworld. Grif finished Final Fantasy XV. She cried. A lot. And then she laughed along with her sister at the hilarity that is Trials Fusion. Chicken started a trend among his friends by returning to Path of Exile. Baka might have finally met his Blood Bowl match. And Chicken, Grif, Baka, & Red have started Divinity 2! Time for more RPG fun times! In the news Blizzard is spending more time on curbing toxic behavior that it is on actual game development for Overwatch. Why is it so hard for people to be decent to each other? Blizzard's also in the news for launching their charity pet event early this year to get a jump start on helping those in need after several natural disasters. Destiny 2 has sold less physical copies than its predecessor. Then again the PC version hasn't launched yet and digital purchases are up. And PewDiePie said something stupid... Again. But does his stupidity warrant devs punishing him by posting copyright claims on his older, unrelated videos? All this and more on this week's Infinite Repsawn Podcast!

Episode 184- Rabbids, Glitches, & Shaders

Oak's back from PAX West and he has plenty to share! Rabbids, Cuphead, Eco, and more, he's got lots to talk about! Grif has some strange moments with her sister while playing Saints Row IV. And Baka let's Chicken down in PUBg. In the news, South Park's got a crazy difficulty slider, Blizzard's opening their own eSports arena, and there's a fighting game that pits Jesus against Buddha. The story that seemed to pull the most attention, though, was Destiny 2's new microtransactoins.  Will the consumable shaders and eventual boatload of DLC be the game's undoing? All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 183- Off Topic: Mass Effect Series

This week's show is a little different than usual so we're calling it an Off Topic show. Oak's out of town and the news is incredibly lacking. In light of that, we had our buddy Newbie on the show and somehow things evolved into a big discussion/debate about the Mass Effect series. If you haven't played the games, there will be spoilers as we chat about everything from the first ME all the way to Andromeda. Are the Salarians the real bad guys? Were there plans for Krogan Reapers? Why does everyone hate Kaiden so much? We'll find out on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 182- New Cinematics, Approved Pirating, & Shelved Series

This week Chicken finally finished Resident Evil 7. Did it live up to all of his expectations? Baka got his first chicken dinner in PUBg! Oak started Uncharted: Lost Legacy and is enjoying the badass ladies! Grif finally started and finished Uncharted 4. She's being picky about the two things that she had issue with but did those things lessen her enjoyment of the story? Uncharted 4 spoilers from 20:26 to 26:45.  In the news, Blizzard had lots to show off this week. There's a new Hearthstone cinematic, Overwatch's Mei got a story cinematic, and Junkrat & Roadhog got a short to announce the new map, Junkertown. The developers of Darkwood have put their game up to be pirated but they have a decent reason as to why. THQ Nordic showed off a bit of gameplay from their upcoming title Biomutant. FF15 is getting and Assassin's Creed event. And apparently the Mass Effect series isn't completely dead, it's just been sidelined for a while. All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 181- Bunkers, Rednecks, & a Lack of DLC

Oak has managed to avoid a permadeath situation in Hellblade. There's still time for him to fail it up though! Baka and Chicken have been on a PUBg binge and they just can't keep quiet about it! Between bouts of PUBg, Chicken managed to start Resident Evil 7. He does his impression of the main villain and everyone dies. Yeah. Grif also started RE7 and scared herself. Now she can't play alone! In the continuing SisLynam stories, this week Grif suffers a hit and run at the hands of her sister in Saints Row. In the news, Sony's still not willing to allow cross-platform play. Is anyone really surprised? Mass Effect Andromeda is getting it's final single-player update before Bioware stops support of the game. That's right, no DLC or future plans after MEA's lackluster performance. That opens up discussion for how games fail at carrying on past a main trilogy. Does anyone do it successfully? Blizzard brings back Battle.net, again surprising no one. Skaven have come to Total War Warhammer! Baka and Chicken are super excited! All that and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 180- We’re Back!

Everyone's back and mostly healthy! After having a week away, everyone's got plenty of games to talk about. Oak's ventured into the world of video game rock operas. Chicken finished up Final Fantasy XV and was not disappointed. Everyone's got PUBg stories to share. Grif is stealing cars from her sister. And Baka is learning to be a better liar. In the news, Shadow of War is getting flack for the introduction of loot boxes. Is it really as controversial as everyone's making it out to be? Nintendo's being sued over the Switch, surprising literally no one. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Podcast 178- TellTale’s Awesome & ARK Gets Expensive

This week everyone gets caught up in arguing about who the best liar is when it comes to playing Deceit! Grif's checking out Mass Effect Andromeda but is it as good (or bad) as everyone says? Oak, Chicken, & Baka have been struggling in PUBg. Will they ever get that coveted Chicken Dinner? In the news, TellTale announced not one but three new games in the works! New Wolf Among Us, Batman, and the final installment in the Walking Dead series are all on the way! ARK devs are struggling to justify their $60 price tag before launch. And Grif gets a surprise visitor just before the end of the show. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 175- Mods, Legal Action, & Pirates

This week both Oak & Chicken are excited to finally have their very own Nintendo Switches. Is it all they hoped it would be? Grif is punching people in GTA V. Problem? What problem? She's totally fine. Speaking of GTA, Rockstar sent a cease and desist letter to the developer of of OpenIV, the biggest GTA V modding platform out there. Fans are not happy and they're complaining about it via Steam's review system. Ubisoft confirms Skull and Bones will have a campaign but just how will that fit with the multiplayer driven trailer they showed at E3? Bioware could be gearing up for 10 years worth of Anthem. Sounds familiar, huh Destiny? And the Steam Summer Sale has started! Time to spend pennies on games you may not play for years to come!

Episode 174- E3 Wrap Up

The audio quality isn't what it usually is. Sorry, we had some technical issues that we were unaware of until after recording. 

This week is all about E3! We talk best in show, disappointments, what to look forward to and more! From Xbox to Playstation to Nintendo and everything in between, we're talking about it all!

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?

Episode 172- So Many Games, So Little Time!

This week we spend most of the show talking about what we've been playing. Turns out everyone's had time to lots of games this week! And there's not a lot of news, so bring on the random fun! Grif sat down with Bendy & the Ink Machine, Dead Rising 4, and Bulletstorm! Craziness abounds. Oak's been playing Rime. Chicken and Baka have lots of fun stories to tell about they experience with Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. Things get pretty intense when they're playing, apparently. As for the news, Shadow of War has been delayed for a couple of months, the next Tropico game has been teased, and Life is Strange looks to be getting a prequel. Steam has announced the fee for Steam Direct, the replacement for Steam Greenlight. Is it the best way to stop the asset flips and shovelware "games"? Time will tell. 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!

Darksiders 3 has been officially announced, much to the delight of our hosts! 343 Industries thinks they made a mistake with Halo 5. And a list of "classic" games and their rage inducing bosses has the crew all up in arms. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Microsoft showed off more details on Project Scorpio. And the makers of CandyCrush are making a Call of Duty mobile game. Call of Candy: Sugar Warfare, anyone? Is the franchise going to get a sugary makeover? Time to speculate! All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!
