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!

Oak's back from his vacation with a few stories to share. Chicken ignored Baka to run off and play a single player game. And Grif is getting her whole family into gaming now! In the news, there's lots you can't do with your new Nintendo Switch. For all of it's issues, the Switch is still a pretty strong new console. The crew shares stories about their previous console mishaps. The sequel to Shadow of Mordor, Shadow of War(dor), has been anounced! Destiny 2 is on the way but there's not much making the jump over from the first game in respects to player characters. Xbox has a new rental program on the way, but is it worth the ten bucks a month? Twitch is looking to offer streamers a little monetary kickback if their viewers buy games straight from their Twitch pages. And Blizzard might have over-tweaked Overwatch's Bastion during the last update. He's getting a little ridculous. All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 156- PS4 Updates & G2A Fails

Episode 155- Paid Reviews & Upcoming Releases

Nintendo made an ad for the Switch directed at gamers who want to play while on the toilet. Prey gets a release date but will it be a game everyone picks up at launch?

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 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 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.

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 138- Walking Legion Ark

It's been a busy week for the IR crew! Chicken, Baka, and Grif came down with a case of Legion fever starting around 2am Tuesday morning. Seems like it's not letting up! The new World of Warcraft expansion has definitely got them talking about all the things that Blizzard really wowed them with. (harhar) In news not related to the the MMORPG titan, TellTale's made a few announcements about release dates. Chicken is looking forward to the next episode of the Batman game as well as a new season of Walking Dead. Is he possibly too attached to Clementine? Early Access title ARK: Survival Evolved has just released it's first "finished" paid DLC. Yes, a game that isn't even in full launch is releasing paid DLC packs. The reviews are understandably mixed. A remastered Mass Effect collection is now off the table. The CoD Modern Warfare remaster is still strapped to Infinite Warfare, but will it stay that way?

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 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.

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!

Episode 123- FPS Master Race Movie

This week our hosts can not stop laughing! Grif giggles and the whole world giggles with her, apparently. Oak and Chicken have both been playing DOOM so they have plenty of stories to swap. Grif is still in love with the vast amounts of destruction in Just Cause 3. She might have been a bit overzealous about taking a base this time, airstrikes be damned! Overwatch is just around the corner and the crew are so excited! Blizzard just published the last Hero video before the launch and it featured Soldier: 76. Chicken and Grif try to figure out who the second hero was supposed to be in the video. Lots of theories to work through here. Chicken corners Grif on why PC Master Race is a thing and Oak tries to correlate that into a real life scenario. It doesn't work. There are several video game movies on the horizon, but no one is sure how they will actually manage a plot. Tetris is supposed to be a sci-fi thriller and the Fruit Ninja movie... There's no real word on that one, but everyone theorizes what it will be about. Resident Evil 7 is in the news again, this time because of the designer they're bringing in to work on it. Grif and Baka talk about their latest Let's Play exploits then Chicken explains how Grif killed Baka with a grunt... All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 120- Augmented Warfare Remastered

Chicken's been going beta crazy this week. He's got tons of new games to talk about! Grif's frustrated with a broken mod for Fallout 4 on PC that has pretty well destroyed her settlements. She also started working on the Darksiders 2 remaster but it's not all she expected. Baka picked up the new Star Fox game and everyone wants to know what he thinks about it. Spoiler: He hasn't even played it yet. Everyone discusses games they'd like to play in VR. Oak's got his PC back and now he's got to remember how to use it for gaming. In the news: this year's Call of Duty game has been announced. It has a dumb name, but it's being packaged with Modern Warfare. The crew theorizes on how to improve upon the CoD franchise. TellTale's next Walking Dead game will "check in" on Clementine, but other than that our hosts are left to theorize on what direction the game will take. Grif is now concerned about the direction of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided after the release of the latest trailer.  All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!
