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!

Episode 169- Asymmetrical Horror, Over Due Fixes, & Colonizing Mars

Grif, Chicken, & Baka had some nostalgic fun with Left 4 Dead. Did Grif claim the top spot for most friendly fire? Oak's back and he's had time to finish a few games! Everyone's itching to play an asymmetrical horror survival game but they can't decide which one to buy.  Deceit, Dead by Daylight, and Friday the 13th all look soooo good. Time to debate the options! In the news, there's talk of a new Assassin's Creed game based on a few screen shots and rumors. Will the new AC return to the roots of the series? Speaking of Ubisoft, the developer is looking to fix a few things for Rainbow Six: Siege. It only came out over a year ago, good thing they're getting around to that... Square Enix is planning to sell IO, the developer behind the Hitman series. The developers of Tropico announced a new game in which players will be tasked with colonizing Mars. And apparently Dead Island 2 isn't as dead as we'd thought. Will the game see the light of day soon? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Grif introduced her sister to shooting & looting in Borderlands and now she won't stop looting! And of course, the first big enemy  in the game drops a legendary weapon.

Players are asking for a mute button to quiet the chatty AI but there's been no word on that yet. This year's Call of Duty is confirmed to be set in WWII.

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!

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. Xbox has a new rental program on the way, but is it worth the ten bucks a month? Twitch is looking to offer streamers a little monetary kickback if their viewers buy games straight from their Twitch pages.

Steam implements an award system and people let them know what game they wanted next via a crowd created award category. Then we figure out how Valve could single-handedly manage world peace... Or world war. You know, whichever. Outlast 2 is now accompanied by a ridiculous crowdfunding project with a puny name. The third season of TellTale's Walking Dead game has a release date. In Overwatch news, Symetra got a rework that gave her two ultimates.  After a viral video this week, there's a discussion on game journalism and what it's lacking.

Episode 141- League of Changes

This week's podcast is a bit on the wonky side. After tons of tech problems, this week's show was recorded offline. There's issues with the audio and video here and there, apologies for those few snags. Anyway, the crew holds it together and talks news, opinions and more! WoW's making changes to lore. If you want to skip the spoilers, that portion starts at 12:00, jump ahead to 24:10. There's a game that's not an Overwatch clone but it does look really similar... Is it a copycat or not? Changes are coming to the eSports side of League of Legends and it seems like the start of a beautiful thing. Maybe this is first step to Riot making a the eSports world better for their players and team owners. And finally Ubisoft is making a few changes to The Division that they hope will allow players more freedom in their gear and builds. All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

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!
