Episode 196- The Game Awards & Beyond!

The Game Awards were this week. We'll give you one guess as to what a bulk of the show is about... Yep! So many fun things to discuss about this years' show! From crazy passionate creators to just play crazy weirdness, there's no shortage of topics to choose from. Beyond the awards, though, we've got a little bit of news and opinions to share: Destiny 2's locking players out of content with the new DLC, Scott Cawthon stealth launched a new FNAF game, and Fortnite is getting a limited time massive 50V50 mode. All this and MUCH more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 195- Cereal, Loot Boxes, & Star Wars Puns

Grif gets a new PC (mostly), Chicken and Oak played a game together (shocking!), and Baka gets to be a Star Wars nerd. Speaking of Star Wars, guess what's still in the news! More SWBF2 controversy due to EA and their continued argument about needing their microtransactions. Grif makes possibly the best and worst pun of all time while the crew brainstorms better ways for SWBF2 to make money on the side. EA isn't the only company in hot water about microtransactions this week. Hi-Res, the studio behind Paladins, is introducing their own loot box based progression system and it has not be well received. And Nintendo is now getting into the cereal game and simultaneously introducing a new amiibo. The box is the amiibo. Yes really. All this and MUCH more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 191- Paris Games Week and BlizzCon!

As you can likely guess from the title, this week's show is mainly about Paris Games Week & BlizzCon news! Before we dive into that, though, Oak's got plenty of gaming to talking about. He's been pretty busy lately with AC Origins, Mario Odyssey, & more! In the news, SO MUCH GOODNESS! A new trailer for Detroit: Become Human, news about a new Overwatch hero, and lots of Sony VR, so exciting! For all you Warcraft fans, the next big expansion was announced and Vanilla WoW servers were confirmed at BlizzCon! We couldn't be more ecstatic! So much epic news this week, the show actually ran a little long! Enjoy!

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 189- Loot Box Plague

Oak's back! He's got lots to talk about on the gaming front, too! Baka's been playing the new South Park game. Is it as offensive as the last one?  Chicken's playing Prey finally and his experience is pretty different from Grif's playthrough. And Grif has introduced her sister to her newest addiction: Uncharted. In the news: LOOT BOXES! Seriously, so much loot box news. Some games have too man, others seem to be doing better with the pseudo gambling. Who is trying to be better and who is on the opposite end of the spectrum? And seriously, did someone patent a system to essentially push microtransactions and loot boxes on you in a kind of underhanded manner? Yeah. They did... EA shutters Visceral, surprising many. What happens to the Star Wars game they were working on now? And there's a new dating sim in the news. Next year you'll be able to dungeon crawl and then date the weapons you find in said dungeon. Because... reasons! Boyfriend Dungeon, just what the hell is it?! All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

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?

Podcast 176- Zelda, Prey, Deceit, & MORE!

We're back! Finally! Two weeks with no podcast, we've got plenty to talk about! Grif's obsessed with Prey but is she a bad guy? Oak, Chicken, & Baka have been playing sooooo much Breath of the Wild! Rime made Oak cry, someone's been lying in Deceit, and, oh yeah, more Zelda talk. Lots of Zelda. In the news: PSNow is getting PS4 games, finally. Nintendo is using an app on the phone for Switch's voice chat. And the Castlevania show on Netflix is short but incredibly awesome! All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

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!

Episode 171- Sticky Bombs & Bags of Snakes

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. Will we ever get more details on the Witcher series they're working on? Is Nintendo partnering with Ubisoft for a Mario/Rabbids crossover? Seems like they may be! Possibly. Overwatch is celebrating a year of crazy fun with new maps, new skins, and lots of loot boxes. Red Dead Redemption 2 has been postponed until next yet. The crew discusses what they'd like to see from the game since Rockstar's spending some extra time working on it.  And Bungie addressed the concerns about peer to peer servers.

Episode 166- Titans, Star Wars, & Nintendo EVERYWHERE!

Grif's on a sugar high, Chicken's loaning Baka money for war, and Oak is out playing with the Easter bunny. We learn that Total War: Warhammer's zombie dragons are dangerous and wasteful. There's a free mount up for grabs in WoW if you've got an hour to run around collecting scraps of paper. Titanfall 2 makes Grif fall in love with her robo-buddy.

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.

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!

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.
