Episode 204- Perfectly Timed Pirating

Oak's back! Chicken's lamenting his lack of a partner for Hunt Showdown. Grif got a once in a lifetime environmental kill in Overwatch (which you can see on her YouTube, link below)! While away, Oak found a new game to play that seems like a clone of Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon. Kingdom Come: Deliverance is out, but was it ready to launch? THQ Nordic is slowly acquiring all of the previous THQ titles. Is that reaquiring or... no? There's finally, FINALLY a lady pro in esports! Yay! Progress! Of course that means it's time for a debate about why this is a first and why more ladies aren't in esports. The System Shock reboot may be in a bit of trouble but what's the root cause of the issue? And to finish the show out, there's tons of new details about Sea of Thieves to talk about! Also, Chicken has a couple of fun stories about his pirating from the weekend. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 203- Dead Studios Rising?

Quick, while Oak's away everyone make tree-related jokes! Grif, Chicken, and Baka hold down the fort while Oak is away. Chicken laments his deaths in Subnautica while Grif gets stuck with fail teammates in Overwatch! The news is pretty barren this week: Capcom slimmed down the studio behind Dead Rising and last year's Dawn of War title has already been given the boot by its devs. There was a pretty fun rumor from a couple of weeks ago that we failed to talk about. No time like to the present, though! So who, if anyone, is Microsoft most likely to attempt to acquire? Time for debates about the possible outcomes! All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 202- Speculation, Loot Crates, & Delays

Even though Oak hasn't had time to play games, Grif, Chicken, and Baka have plenty to talk about! From Overwatch to Just Cause 3, there's lots of stuff to talk about! The Sea of Thieves beta is over, but Reddit users have data mined the latest update and now there's TONS of speculation as to what will be in the full game! In the news EA's adding loot crates back to Star Wars Battlefront 2 because they didn't sell enough copies to start with. You know, because adding the thing that caused people to avoid the game will definitely sell more copies... Will EA ever not be a terrible company? Will they kill Bioware? Speaking of Bioware, Anthem has been delayed again. Is anyone surprised? All this and MUCH more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

In the news: Ark is getting a minecraft-esque spin off, DICE is reworking Star Wars Battlefront 2's loot crate system. Ubisoft is finally getting dedicated servers up for For Honor.

And Grif got back to making videos (they'll be on her channel, link below) with Planet Coaster! The news is a bit of a mixed bag with everything from the Overwatch League starting up to reasons why Monster Hunter Worlds is going to be late for PC players. Xbox is getting a Do Not Disturb feature. AGDQ broke last year's record with their charity fund raising. And a fan-made map Overwatch map has gotten the attention of Blizzard.

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!

Podcast 177- Aim for the Butt!

Chicken has been pleasantly surprised by Final Fantasy 15: the mechanics are fun, the food looks amazing, and there's a button that teleports his group back to their car. Pretty sweet!  Grif finished Prey and now has no one to talk to about it since the rest of the guys haven't played it. She also found out this week that her sister is loot ninja! Story time! Oak's trying out his new Steam Link and Baka is stuck trying to figure out how to master the remaining shrines in Breath of the Wild. The news is sparse, but to make up for that everyone shares their favorite co-op games. Lots of memories and discussions to be had about those! All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

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 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!
