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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
