Episode 172- So Many Games, So Little Time!

This week we spend most of the show talking about what we've been playing. Turns out everyone's had time to lots of games this week! And there's not a lot of news, so bring on the random fun! Grif sat down with Bendy & the Ink Machine, Dead Rising 4, and Bulletstorm! Craziness abounds. Oak's been playing Rime. Chicken and Baka have lots of fun stories to tell about they experience with Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. Things get pretty intense when they're playing, apparently. As for the news, Shadow of War has been delayed for a couple of months, the next Tropico game has been teased, and Life is Strange looks to be getting a prequel. Steam has announced the fee for Steam Direct, the replacement for Steam Greenlight. Is it the best way to stop the asset flips and shovelware "games"? Time will tell.

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. Sort of.  All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

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!
