Episode 142- No Man’s Destiny

Pokemon are ruining movies? What? This year's FIFA is an RPG? Seriously? What is going on this week? There's a bit of news about the Destiny sequel. Bullestorm might actually have a remaster on the way soon(ish). Battleborn is going free to play even if Randy Pitchford refuses to call it that. And a watchdog group is looking into Hello Games and No Man's Sky for false advertising (so shocking...).  All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 140- Assassin’s Stranding

While Oak's on vacation, Chicken, Grif, and Baka hold things down on the show! Chicken's been shiny hunting in Pokemon. He's had the game for days and still hasn't even started actually playing the game! Grif's in love with Bioshock all over again. The remastered collection came out on Tuesday and she can't stop fawning over it. Speaking of remasters, Ubisoft finally officially announced The Ezio Collection. There was quite a bit of Blizzard/Warcraft news to talk about just ahead of BlizzCon. A retirement, an upstart, and some hidden goodies top the Blizz stories. Kojima talked a little more about Death Stranding. "A little" is pretty accurate considering he didn't give away much more than everyone already know. Oh and now Kojima's got a cartoon drawn of him and some buddies that everyone's sure to recognize. Why? Because... Kojima? Sure, let's go with that. All of this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 139- Modded Console Wars!

Oak "broke down" and bought the ARK expansion even though he said he wouldn't just a week prior. The crew talks about the validity of speaking with your wallet in today's gaming world. Then it's on to more fun stuff! Sony announced the PS4 Slim and the PS4 Pro. Are the new members of the PS4 family worth upgrading to? What about all this talk of no 4K Blu-Ray? Microsoft feels confident the Xbox One S and Project Scorpio can more than compete with the new PS4s. Are they right about that? Is the console war heating up again with all the new announcements? Also Sony said "no" to mods for Fallout 4 and Skyrim. Seems silly since they were ok with it before Fallout 4 launched. Odd behavior indeed! And WoW launched a companion app that means no more productive days at work for Grif! All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 137- Evil Augmented Microtransactions

Everyone talks about what they're playing this week which prompts one viewer to ask if the crew would ever play Destiny 2. How much would it cost for Chicken to agree to play again? This week the main conversation circled around Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. (Spoiler Free) From microtransactions to interesting storytelling, Chicken and Grif have plenty to talk about in regards to the new addition to the franchise. The ESRB leaked a bit of details about Resident Evil 7 that finally confirms combat! Combat and first person view. Will Chicken change his mind about RE7 and his stance against first person perspective? All this and so much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 136- Gamescom & More

Ever wonder how to tell Oak and Grif apart? Find out this week! The show got off to a really weird start with chats about everyone's looks, but our hosts managed to pull themselves back on track eventually. Baka is playing an MMO on console and he's not so sure about the controls. Grif is excited about the impending release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, but Chicken gets to play their copy first. Oak's still playing No Man's Sky. Grif talks about making the "right" choices in Fallout 4. There was plenty of news out of Gamescom this year about a game everyone's been playing. Blizzard announced plenty of things for, you guessed it, Overwatch! Bastion got an animated short, Zarya is coming to Heroes of the Storm, and Blizzard is making trolls a little nicer. Recently there has been an uproar about Overwatch's Summer Olympics loot boxes. Resident Evil 7 is putting off some long time RE fans with it's latest  trailer. Will the game be in first person rather than third this time around? Will there be an option to fight back? So far it looks like a really weird game of hide and seek. Konami is showing off it's first Metal Gear game since Kojima's departure. It is definitely ... different. There's a rumor about an Assassin's Creed 2 remaster that has Grif excited. She's also excited about the Bioshock remaster which finally got a graphical comparison video this week. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 135- No Man’s Lie?

This week things get a little bumpy with the launch of No Man's Sky. The game might not offer all the dev had originally promised and that leads to some spirited debate. Ok, who are we kidding? There's a legit argument here. There's also talk of THQ being resurected and Grif accidentally becomes in troll in World of Warcraft. All of this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast.

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!
