Episode 161- Link’s Fowl Weapons & Speed Running

Chicken's been watching lots of Nintendo speed running while playing his usual games. Grif and her sister played Layers of Fear together. Were they too scared to make it to the end of the game? And is SisLynam as into Halo as Grif? In the news, there was game play footage of Shadow of War this week and everyone's in love! Chickens are super weapons in Breath of the Wild! Speed runners are already finding faster ways to travel in the new Zelda world! The crew gets a little sidetracked talking about whether or not speed runners can still enjoy the games they play. And there's a possible Just Cause movie in the works. Can there be a successful movie based on a game that's largely about blowing random stuff up? 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.

Episode 142- No Man’s Destiny

Pokemon are ruining movies? What? This year's FIFA is an RPG? Seriously? What is going on this week? There's a bit of news about the Destiny sequel. Bullestorm might actually have a remaster on the way soon(ish). Battleborn is going free to play even if Randy Pitchford refuses to call it that. And a watchdog group is looking into Hello Games and No Man's Sky for false advertising (so shocking...).  All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 141- League of Changes

This week's podcast is a bit on the wonky side. After tons of tech problems, this week's show was recorded offline. There's issues with the audio and video here and there, apologies for those few snags. Anyway, the crew holds it together and talks news, opinions and more! WoW's making changes to lore. If you want to skip the spoilers, that portion starts at 12:00, jump ahead to 24:10. There's a game that's not an Overwatch clone but it does look really similar... Is it a copycat or not? Changes are coming to the eSports side of League of Legends and it seems like the start of a beautiful thing. Maybe this is first step to Riot making a the eSports world better for their players and team owners. And finally Ubisoft is making a few changes to The Division that they hope will allow players more freedom in their gear and builds. All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 139- Modded Console Wars!

Oak "broke down" and bought the ARK expansion even though he said he wouldn't just a week prior. The crew talks about the validity of speaking with your wallet in today's gaming world. Then it's on to more fun stuff! Sony announced the PS4 Slim and the PS4 Pro. Are the new members of the PS4 family worth upgrading to? What about all this talk of no 4K Blu-Ray? Microsoft feels confident the Xbox One S and Project Scorpio can more than compete with the new PS4s. Are they right about that? Is the console war heating up again with all the new announcements? Also Sony said "no" to mods for Fallout 4 and Skyrim. Seems silly since they were ok with it before Fallout 4 launched. Odd behavior indeed! And WoW launched a companion app that means no more productive days at work for Grif! All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 137- Evil Augmented Microtransactions

Everyone talks about what they're playing this week which prompts one viewer to ask if the crew would ever play Destiny 2. How much would it cost for Chicken to agree to play again? This week the main conversation circled around Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. (Spoiler Free) From microtransactions to interesting storytelling, Chicken and Grif have plenty to talk about in regards to the new addition to the franchise. The ESRB leaked a bit of details about Resident Evil 7 that finally confirms combat! Combat and first person view. Will Chicken change his mind about RE7 and his stance against first person perspective? All this and so much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 136- Gamescom & More

Ever wonder how to tell Oak and Grif apart? Find out this week! The show got off to a really weird start with chats about everyone's looks, but our hosts managed to pull themselves back on track eventually. Baka is playing an MMO on console and he's not so sure about the controls. Grif is excited about the impending release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, but Chicken gets to play their copy first. Oak's still playing No Man's Sky. Grif talks about making the "right" choices in Fallout 4. There was plenty of news out of Gamescom this year about a game everyone's been playing. Blizzard announced plenty of things for, you guessed it, Overwatch! Bastion got an animated short, Zarya is coming to Heroes of the Storm, and Blizzard is making trolls a little nicer. Recently there has been an uproar about Overwatch's Summer Olympics loot boxes. Resident Evil 7 is putting off some long time RE fans with it's latest  trailer. Will the game be in first person rather than third this time around? Will there be an option to fight back? So far it looks like a really weird game of hide and seek. Konami is showing off it's first Metal Gear game since Kojima's departure. It is definitely ... different. There's a rumor about an Assassin's Creed 2 remaster that has Grif excited. She's also excited about the Bioshock remaster which finally got a graphical comparison video this week. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 135- No Man’s Lie?

This week things get a little bumpy with the launch of No Man's Sky. The game might not offer all the dev had originally promised and that leads to some spirited debate. Ok, who are we kidding? There's a legit argument here. There's also talk of THQ being resurected and Grif accidentally becomes in troll in World of Warcraft. All of this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast.

Episode 134- Punishing Panda Face

This week's show is a pretty mixed bag and that's definitely a good thing! Grif's addicted to Skyrim (again). Baka and Oak try to turn her medieval experience into GTA. Then the crew likens Grif's Fallout 4 settlement to the Olympics in Rio because... it makes sense. Maybe. Chicken tried out Mordheim: City of the Dead. Turns out that game is super punishing  and might make people cry. The pre-Legion patch for World of Warcraft came out and not everyone is happy with it. The crew talk PvP changes and more. Grif lets everyone really know how she feels about WoW's Pandaran race. It's not exactly positive feelings either. Oak finished South Park: The Stick of Truth. Now he needs therapy, but he's ok. He'll be ok. One day. Oak also went back to GTA V for a bit this week. He finally met Trevor. Good times. In the news this week, Blizzard sends out a new wave for bans that has people crying on their forums. Hilarity ensures. Oak's excited about old school Disney games making a return on PC soon. The latest PokemonGO update has made it harder to catch Pokemon. Chicken tells the tale of how he lost an amazing Pokemon because of the update. TaleTell's Batman game launched and the PC players were not happy. The crew talks about fail frame rates and glitches in the game. 2K's vowed to continue supporting Battleborn even though it wasn't as successful as they'd hoped. Everyone discusses why it failed and how other companies have succeeded in supporting less popular games. All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 132- Ring Around the Reaper

Oak's back this week after a bit of internet trouble. Grif thinks she'd make a better leader than the current choices for US president. She also might have left her team out to dry in favor of playing hide and seek with Reaper in Overwatch. Pokemon Go is still everyone's go-to mobile game. The crew talk new catches, strategies, and more! Plenty of great stuff is happening in the co-op Let's Plays this week. From Halo to Sunset Overdrive, the stories abound! There's a live action Pokemon movie on the way featuring Pikachu as a detective. Two new Sonic games have been announced but not everyone is on board with the idea. The discussion of 4K vs 1080p popped up in the chat so our hosts offer their opinions on the matter. Chicken's looking forward to the upcoming third season of TellTale's The Walking Dead. He's also eyeing their Batman game, which looks amazing. A man who made threats toward Blizzard is now looking at possible jail time. Windows 10 is really pushing itself on people since it's coming up on the deadline to upgrade for free. Our hosts talk pros & cons of the OS. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 129- Fireworks and Dragons

This week Grif's fallen back into her Fallout 4 addiction. She totally tuned out everything while working on the Automatron DLC because who needs real life when there are robots involved? Chicken and Baka are still in Overwatch bliss. When they aren't playing Overwatch, they're back to World of Warcraft. Blizzard definitely knows how to keep them hooked! Grif was ecstatic over the announcement of Bioshock: The Collection. So much so that she may ditch Chicken on his birthday just to get her plasmid fix. Call of Duty is getting dragons. Yeah, none of our hosts get it either. Resident Evil 7 isn't a ghost story but no one know exactly what it is yet. And since the the fourth of July is right around the corner, everyone shares their outrageous stories about fireworks and a total disregard for personal safety. PSA kids, don't try this at home... All this and more on the Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 128- Blizzard, Why You So Good?!

Oak finally finished Uncharted 4. He doesn't talk spoilers, but he was pleased with the way it tied everything up. Mass Effect is in the news. There isn't a truckload of new details about Andromedia, but they did confirm that they'll be avoiding addressing the end of ME3 in the new game. Since the series is taking a ten year time leap, there will be books to read to stay caught up! Baka goes on a tangent about how convoluted the Mortal Kombat universe is. His nerd is showing big time and it's wonderful! Chicken's still really wound up in the Warcraft movie and a few articles (and more importantly, their comment sections) validate some of the things Chicken's been saying all along. Oak theorizes why movie critics are panning the movie. Speaking of Blizzard, Overwatch had quite a few bits of news this week including removing a few features, adding some vanity  items, and seeing a 17 year old girl make pro OW players cry. Civ5 might be headed to schools! The devs are in talks to develop a version of the game that could be used to teach history and assess decision making skills. Grif and Baka talk about their escapades in Let's Play: Halo Combat Evolved. And Overwatch is giving League of Legends a run for their money, literally. Players are shifting to the new FPS in droves, but what does that mean for the eSports titan? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!
