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 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 183- Off Topic: Mass Effect Series

This week's show is a little different than usual so we're calling it an Off Topic show. Oak's out of town and the news is incredibly lacking. In light of that, we had our buddy Newbie on the show and somehow things evolved into a big discussion/debate about the Mass Effect series. If you haven't played the games, there will be spoilers as we chat about everything from the first ME all the way to Andromeda. Are the Salarians the real bad guys? Were there plans for Krogan Reapers? Why does everyone hate Kaiden so much? We'll find out 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? Nintendo's being sued over the Switch, surprising literally no one. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

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.

Episode 165- Warhammer, Scorpio, & Sugar Warfare?

In the news, Bioware has patched in a fix to help some of the weird face fails in Mass Effect Andromeda. Gearbox pulls its support from G2A after certain (reasonable!) demands weren't met. Microsoft showed off more details on Project Scorpio. And the makers of CandyCrush are making a Call of Duty mobile game. Call of Candy: Sugar Warfare, anyone?

Episode 164- Angry Players & Annoying AI

Chicken, Grif, & Baka have returned to World of Warcraft to test out Patch 7.2. Oak is sad about how much plot he's been given in Horizon Zero Dawn. Grif introduced her sister to shooting & looting in Borderlands and now she won't stop looting! And of course, the first big enemy  in the game drops a legendary weapon. Beginner's luck?  In the news, some WoW players are mad that they aren't super over powered. Bioware is planning to make some major repairs to Mass Effect Andromeda. Players are asking for a mute button to quiet the chatty AI but there's been no word on that yet. This year's Call of Duty is confirmed to be set in WWII. Will this be a refreshing return to their roots or more of the same? And peripheral retailer MadCatz has finally filed for bankruptcy. All this and much 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!
