Episode 222- Lucky Treasure Hunters & Not So Shocking Surprises

This week Chicken and Baka have spent a lot of time play Heroes of the Storm. Chicken started Cuphead and so far he has no thoughts of rage quitting... So far. Grif started playing WoW again and is STILL bitter about Baka stealing an epic mount from her. Oak finished Detroit: Become Human but it was very different experience from the way Chicken and Grif played it. In the news: Uncharted's Nathan Drake has apparently never taken a bullet. Rainbow 6 Siege just got a new chat bot to moderate players and it is VERY strict. Konami shut down a fan remake of PT, surprising literally no one. A study shows more than 50% of parents in the UK allow underage kids play M-18+ rated gamed. Another thing that shocked no one. Darksiders 3 finally has a release date!

Episode 213- Debating Addictive Games

The crew is running a little short on chatter about games they've played recently. Mostly because things have just been crazy for everyone lately! One of the few things everyone did get to try out was Deep Rock Galactic. Basically, it's dwarves and awesomeness. The big topic this week is Fortnite and its addictive nature. Is it too addictive? Are parents being to lazy? Is there a better way to monitor how much time people spend on a game? Do we need that kind of monitoring? Things get pretty lively as the discussion goes on. The new Red Dead Redemption trailer definitely caught some eyes this week. One of the endings of Life is Strange is being expanded via a comic. And Grif is still having a crazy time playing Far Cry 5, which you can watch on her YouTube channel! (Link below!) All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!
