Episode 216- Salty Pokemon Fallout

This week everyone's still wound up about Vermintide 2! It's such a good game that we can't help but talk about it! The highs, the lows, the crushing defeats, it's all here. Will Grif ever finish Persona 5? At this rate, maybe not... In the news Geralt is coming to Soul Calibur 6. Dante from Devil May Cry (the real one) is coming to Monster Hunter. Microtransactions are still in Star Wars Battlefront 2 but is that too little to late? ARK, and Fortnite are coming to mobile because... reasons.

Episode 207- Sea of VerminWatch

There's lots of Vermintide and Sea of Thieves talk this week! Actually, just expect lots of Sea of Thieves talk for the next few shows, that's definitely going to come up all the time. One of Chicken's cats makes a guest appearance for a bit! CATS! Grif has introduced her sister to the world of Fallout 4 and things are going SO SLOWLY! In the news: Nintendo teased a Super Smash Bros for the Switch. Will the upcoming Kirby game finally bring Grif to the Switch for good? Are Luigi and Waluigi the superior brothers? Valve is planning to start making games again! Will we see Portal 3, Half Life 3, or Left4Dead 3? Grif makes a case for a VR version of Bioshock. Ubisoft announced plans for The Division 2, but what's so different about it? Fortnite is coming to mobile and looking to have cross platform play with all of their versions. XB1 vs Mobile players? Hm... And to close the show out, everyone talks about what games should be made into movies/series. All that 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!

Episode 197- The Good, The Bad, & The Weird of 2017

This week everyone's excited about taking a look back at the awesome games from 2017! Who doesn't love a good year-end top 5 list? There's also talk of the most disappointing things from the year. But the last show of the year can't end on an unhappy note! Everyone shares what they're looking forward to in 2018! There's also a bit of news: Bungie's still making excuses for issues in Destiny 2 and ARK has a really weird new "feature" in its latest DLC installment. All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

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 189- Loot Box Plague

Oak's back! He's got lots to talk about on the gaming front, too! Baka's been playing the new South Park game. Is it as offensive as the last one?  Chicken's playing Prey finally and his experience is pretty different from Grif's playthrough. And Grif has introduced her sister to her newest addiction: Uncharted. In the news: LOOT BOXES! Seriously, so much loot box news. Some games have too man, others seem to be doing better with the pseudo gambling. Who is trying to be better and who is on the opposite end of the spectrum? And seriously, did someone patent a system to essentially push microtransactions and loot boxes on you in a kind of underhanded manner? Yeah. They did... EA shutters Visceral, surprising many. What happens to the Star Wars game they were working on now? And there's a new dating sim in the news. Next year you'll be able to dungeon crawl and then date the weapons you find in said dungeon. Because... reasons! Boyfriend Dungeon, just what the hell is it?! 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! 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?

Episode 171- Sticky Bombs & Bags of Snakes

Everyone's pretty impressed with the new Friday the 13th game after watching a few streamers play it. No one's picked it up yet, though. Will they pick it up soon? Grif has lots of stories this week for what she's been playing. She's introduced her sister to Dying Light and GTA V. Things are ... interesting. In the news, we finally have details about Far Cry 5. Will the new information change Grif's mind about the game?  Netflix has put out a trailer for their Castlevania series and they've already renewed it for a second season. Will we ever get more details on the Witcher series they're working on? Is Nintendo partnering with Ubisoft for a Mario/Rabbids crossover? Seems like they may be! Possibly. Overwatch is celebrating a year of crazy fun with new maps, new skins, and lots of loot boxes. Red Dead Redemption 2 has been postponed until next yet. The crew discusses what they'd like to see from the game since Rockstar's spending some extra time working on it.  And Bungie addressed the concerns about peer to peer servers. Sort of.  All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 163- Dumping Battlenet & Defending Microtransactions

This week Oak's been exploring Horizon Zero Dawn, Baka is jumping back into Fallout 4, & Grif's making her sister cry with The Last of Us. In a Dungeons & Dragons update, Baka's half-orc character runs from a fight as though he was a scared kid. In the news , Nintendo has managed to fix the issue with the Switch's left Joy-con. Blizzard dumped the Battlenet launcher in favor of calling it... well, Blizzard. WoW is about to get a huge patch that should open the Tomb of Sargeras and more. Ubisoft is defending the mass amounts of Steele needed to unlock everything in For Honor which spurs a conversation about the state of microtransactions in games. Mass Effect Andromeda is getting a patch to start repairing some of the broken things in the game. It doesn't fix everything, but at least it's progress. Right? A poster may have leaked the launch date for Destiny which leads to a discussion on timed exclusive content. All this and much 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!

Grif is finding out just how much she and her sister have in common as they bond over video games. In the news,  Valve is working on full VR titles and finally eliminating the Greenlight program. Oak & Chicken debate details of VR hardware and how expensive the final products might be. E3 will be open to everyone this year but the tickets are a little pricey. Are they letting the public in to foot the bill for failing interest on the commercial side? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 156- PS4 Updates & G2A Fails

Grif's had too much coffee so this show should be pretty high energy. Chicken's in that post-game depression after finishing the Mass Effect trilogy. Sister Lynam is really getting into gaming, this week Grif introduced her to Silent Hill. In the news PS4 is getting external hard drive support (finally!). G2A, the game key re-seller, held an AMA on Reddit and got blasted by the community. For Honor is holding an open beta next week.

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 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 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!
