Episode 188- Petting Cats, Missing Diablo, and Speed Running RPGs

Oak's away, but Grif, Chicken, and Baka have plenty to chat about! Baka's been cheesing fights in Dragon Ball Xenoverse. When he's not being cheap in fighting games, Baka's been filling his week with multiplayer stuff like Fortnite's Battle Royale mode and Minion Masters with Chicken. Chicken finished Horizon Zero Dawn and was seriously impressed. Then he turned to something a little less serious for his gaming needs. Grif introduced her sister to the Uncharted series and she's set out on her own in Divinity: Original Sin 2. In the news: Will cheaters prosper in Fortnite? Will PUBg fix their servers and find a way to hold on to their ever-growing player base? Can you speed run Divinity 2? Can you pet the cats in the upcoming Assassin's Creed game? Will Blizzard ever announce another bit of Diablo content? And how is that TellTale managed to slip a real dead body into the latest Batman episode? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 187- Retro Gaming, Time Jumps, & Expensive Emulators

Baka lost track of time while also losing track of his people in Banished. Grif and Chicken went old school with some of their gaming this week. Old school as in N64 old. Wow. That nostalgia... and rage. Chicken is completely in love with Horizon Zero Dawn and finally found out how far into the future the game is set. Oak's been all about FIFA 18 but apparently it's not as much on the Switch if you want to play with friends. In the news, Atari might just be out of their collective mind with the price point for the upcoming Ataribox. Steam finally pulled over 150 asset flips from the platform. Why didn't they see this as a problem before? The voice actor strike is finally over. Did everyone win? Resident Evil is getting a board game. Can you guess which one of the crew is most excited? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast! PS- Sorry for the typing noise, that was me. -Grif

Episode 186- Salty Devs, Salty Platforms, Salty Everything!

Oak's all about the Rabbids this week. Chicken finally got to pick up Horizon Zero Dawn and he is not disappointed! Grif and her sis raged at MarioKart because that's just what you do. And how is Chicken so ok with spoilers? Is he just weird? In the news: the creator of PUBg is a bit salty about Fortnite's new battle royal mode. Speaking of Fortnite, someone at Epic fell asleep at the wheel and accidentally allowed cross-platform play between Xbox and PS4. Turns out the world didn't end & children everywhere weren't scared for life. Weird! Will Sony ever be ok with letting their players hang out with other console users? What's their real hang up, anyway? Time to discuss! Steam changed the user review system again. It's awesome! And there's a cat dating sim on the way. Yes, just let that sink in for a moment...

Episode 185- Sheer Divinity, Toxic Jerks, & Copyright Quandaries

Oak's found a new addiction with Rimworld. Grif finished Final Fantasy XV. She cried. A lot. And then she laughed along with her sister at the hilarity that is Trials Fusion. Chicken started a trend among his friends by returning to Path of Exile. Baka might have finally met his Blood Bowl match. And Chicken, Grif, Baka, & Red have started Divinity 2! Time for more RPG fun times! In the news Blizzard is spending more time on curbing toxic behavior that it is on actual game development for Overwatch. Why is it so hard for people to be decent to each other? Blizzard's also in the news for launching their charity pet event early this year to get a jump start on helping those in need after several natural disasters. Destiny 2 has sold less physical copies than its predecessor. Then again the PC version hasn't launched yet and digital purchases are up. And PewDiePie said something stupid... Again. But does his stupidity warrant devs punishing him by posting copyright claims on his older, unrelated videos? All this and more on this week's Infinite Repsawn Podcast!

Episode 184- Rabbids, Glitches, & Shaders

Oak's back from PAX West and he has plenty to share! Rabbids, Cuphead, Eco, and more, he's got lots to talk about! Grif has some strange moments with her sister while playing Saints Row IV. And Baka let's Chicken down in PUBg. In the news, South Park's got a crazy difficulty slider, Blizzard's opening their own eSports arena, and there's a fighting game that pits Jesus against Buddha. The story that seemed to pull the most attention, though, was Destiny 2's new microtransactoins.  Will the consumable shaders and eventual boatload of DLC be the game's undoing? All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 181- Bunkers, Rednecks, & a Lack of DLC

Oak has managed to avoid a permadeath situation in Hellblade. There's still time for him to fail it up though! Baka and Chicken have been on a PUBg binge and they just can't keep quiet about it! Between bouts of PUBg, Chicken managed to start Resident Evil 7. He does his impression of the main villain and everyone dies. Yeah. Grif also started RE7 and scared herself. Now she can't play alone! In the continuing SisLynam stories, this week Grif suffers a hit and run at the hands of her sister in Saints Row. In the news, Sony's still not willing to allow cross-platform play. Is anyone really surprised? Mass Effect Andromeda is getting it's final single-player update before Bioware stops support of the game. That's right, no DLC or future plans after MEA's lackluster performance. That opens up discussion for how games fail at carrying on past a main trilogy. Does anyone do it successfully? Blizzard brings back Battle.net, again surprising no one. Skaven have come to Total War Warhammer! Baka and Chicken are super excited! All that and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Chicken finished up Final Fantasy XV and was not disappointed. Everyone's got PUBg stories to share. Grif is stealing cars from her sister. And Baka is learning to be a better liar. In the news, Shadow of War is getting flack for the introduction of loot boxes. Is it really as controversial as everyone's making it out to be?

Podcast 178- TellTale’s Awesome & ARK Gets Expensive

This week everyone gets caught up in arguing about who the best liar is when it comes to playing Deceit! Grif's checking out Mass Effect Andromeda but is it as good (or bad) as everyone says?

New Wolf Among Us, Batman, and the final installment in the Walking Dead series are all on the way! ARK devs are struggling to justify their $60 price tag before launch.

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!

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!

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.

Episode 169- Asymmetrical Horror, Over Due Fixes, & Colonizing Mars

Grif, Chicken, & Baka had some nostalgic fun with Left 4 Dead. Did Grif claim the top spot for most friendly fire? Oak's back and he's had time to finish a few games! Everyone's itching to play an asymmetrical horror survival game but they can't decide which one to buy.  Deceit, Dead by Daylight, and Friday the 13th all look soooo good. Time to debate the options! In the news, there's talk of a new Assassin's Creed game based on a few screen shots and rumors. Will the new AC return to the roots of the series?
