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 and Baka are struggling with Heroes of the Storm and a decided lack of map rotation. Grif has come up with a creative way to change her Dragon Age Origins experience. Darksiders 3 has been officially announced, much to the delight of our hosts! 343 Industries thinks they made a mistake with Halo 5. And a list of "classic" games and their rage inducing bosses has the crew all up in arms. 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!

Episode 159- Gaming Burnouts & Switch Issues

Chicken and Baka are still working on For Honor, but they've taken a break to try out Ghost Recon Wildlands. That's been quite the adventure thus far. Grif gets all agro right out of the gate after people complain about Blizzard not forcing people to take breaks while playing WoW. Is Mythic raiding getting out of hand? In a follow up to last week's story about $10K worth of missing SNES games has a happy ending! Nintendo's Switch might have a few issues at launch, we'll give you a brief rundown on that problem. Blizzard's teasing new Overwatch characters but will it be who we think it is? Future Halo games will come standard with split-screen co-op. Does this signal a return to the franchise's roots?

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!

Episode 133- No Man’s Warmastered Edition

This week's episode got off to a rocky start, but our hosts know how to turn things around! Oak is juggling several games at once. He's working on GTA V, We Happy Few, and he just finished up South Park: Stick of Truth. Grif thoguth she had a moment in the sun by getting Play of the Game in one of her Overwatch matches this week. Turns out it was a total fail. Nice. Niantic has updated PokemonGO and removed the tracking feature. They also asked that the PokeVision site, a third party tacking site, be removed. So now how is anyone supposed to know where the Pokemon are without wandering completely aimlessly? Grif and Chicken recount seeing a PokemonGO player on the road. Playing while she was driving. Be safe out there, gamers! Disney Infinity will disappear completely for PC and mobile players early next year. Is that a raw deal for players who purchased the game on those platforms? Grif encourages and then immediately discourages theft. What is going on here?! No Man's Sky has been delayed for PC users... by three days. A few videos of NMS gameplay have leaked and Hello Games is asking that people not watch it for spoiler issues. For an infinitely, randomly generated game, would a few minutes of gameplay really spoil much? Three of the crew are playing World of Warcraft again. They share fun stories from their weekend escapades. The first Darksiders game is getting a remaster. As with Darksiders 2, the remastered title is a really terrible pun. Darksiders: Warmastered Edition. Yeah... All this and much 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. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 131- Pokemon, Assassins, and Team Kills

Oak's missing this week, but Chicken, Baka, and Grif keep things moving just fine without him. Pokemon Go is everywhere and even the IR crew have been sucked into the madness! Chicken may or may not have gotten a new phone specifically to play the addictive new game with. People are siting Pokemon Go as the reason for injuries, property damage, and more. Certain locales are asking to be removed as PokeStops, turns out there's a form you have to fill out and everything. Since there's little in the news, Grif and Baka talk about their Let's Play escapades. Apparently Baka is just a figment of Grif's imagination in Let's Play: Halo Combat Evolved. He's also working on take Grif's crown as Queen (or King, in his case) of Team Kills. Grif finally got to sit down with Assassin's Creed: Syndicate. While Ubisoft improved on some things between Unity and Syndicate, there are still some things that aren't quite right. Chicken has a hard time finding anything he likes about the game so he spends some time pointing out things that are "wrong" with the game in his opinion. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!
