Episode 208- Cheap Fighters, Ports, and Epic Fails

This week everyone's still wound up about Vermintide 2! It's such a good game that we can't help but talk about it! The highs, the lows, the crushing defeats, it's all here. Will Grif ever finish Persona 5? At this rate, maybe not... In the news Geralt is coming to Soul Calibur 6. Dante from Devil May Cry (the real one) is coming to Monster Hunter. Microtransactions are still in Star Wars Battlefront 2 but is that too little to late? ARK, and Fortnite are coming to mobile because... reasons. What's the deal with the new ports to mobile for everything? And the final installment of the Tomb Raider origin story has been announced.

Episode 207- Sea of VerminWatch

There's lots of Vermintide and Sea of Thieves talk this week! Actually, just expect lots of Sea of Thieves talk for the next few shows, that's definitely going to come up all the time. One of Chicken's cats makes a guest appearance for a bit! CATS! Grif has introduced her sister to the world of Fallout 4 and things are going SO SLOWLY! In the news: Nintendo teased a Super Smash Bros for the Switch. Will the upcoming Kirby game finally bring Grif to the Switch for good? Are Luigi and Waluigi the superior brothers? Valve is planning to start making games again! Will we see Portal 3, Half Life 3, or Left4Dead 3? Grif makes a case for a VR version of Bioshock. Ubisoft announced plans for The Division 2, but what's so different about it? Fortnite is coming to mobile and looking to have cross platform play with all of their versions. XB1 vs Mobile players? Hm... And to close the show out, everyone talks about what games should be made into movies/series. All that and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 206- Night Lights, Copy/Paste Heroes, & More!

This week the guys are super excited about Vermintide 2! They are less excited about their performance in Rainbow Six Siege. In the news, the ESRB is considering adding more labels to box art for "in game purchases". Blizzard announced a new hero for Overwatch. One of the devs of Paladins pointed out similarities between the new OW hero and one of their champions. Is this a pot and kettle situation? Detroit Become Human has a release date on someone will be posting their first run through to YouTube. Wonder who that could be??? Will Blizzard be remastering Diablo? So much speculation! And why is the US blaming video games for violence... again? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 205- Scary Microtransactions & the Decade of Siege

This week everyone seems a bit scattered. Does that make for a better show? We'll find out! Grif's still working her way through Persona 5 and things are just getting weirder as she goes. Chicken's not going to be able to stream Crash Bandicoot as promised. Is his reason for not doing so an acceptable one? And Baka educates everyone on the PSP Go... because that's a thing that exists. In the news: Have Konami mastered the "art" if microtransactoins in Metal Gear Survive? Ubisoft says Rainbow Six will be around for the next ten years. Will they manage to keep the game fresh and going for that long? Blizzard just launched an update for Warcraft 3. Is this indicative of a remaster on the way? Nintendo's under fire for their preorder refund policy. And the upcoming Sonic movie has a rough release date. Will it be worth seeings? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 204- Perfectly Timed Pirating

Oak's back! Chicken's lamenting his lack of a partner for Hunt Showdown. Grif got a once in a lifetime environmental kill in Overwatch (which you can see on her YouTube, link below)! While away, Oak found a new game to play that seems like a clone of Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon. Kingdom Come: Deliverance is out, but was it ready to launch? THQ Nordic is slowly acquiring all of the previous THQ titles. Is that reaquiring or... no? There's finally, FINALLY a lady pro in esports! Yay! Progress! Of course that means it's time for a debate about why this is a first and why more ladies aren't in esports. The System Shock reboot may be in a bit of trouble but what's the root cause of the issue? And to finish the show out, there's tons of new details about Sea of Thieves to talk about! Also, Chicken has a couple of fun stories about his pirating from the weekend. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 202- Speculation, Loot Crates, & Delays

Even though Oak hasn't had time to play games, Grif, Chicken, and Baka have plenty to talk about! From Overwatch to Just Cause 3, there's lots of stuff to talk about! The Sea of Thieves beta is over, but Reddit users have data mined the latest update and now there's TONS of speculation as to what will be in the full game! In the news EA's adding loot crates back to Star Wars Battlefront 2 because they didn't sell enough copies to start with. You know, because adding the thing that caused people to avoid the game will definitely sell more copies... Will EA ever not be a terrible company? Will they kill Bioware? Speaking of Bioware, Anthem has been delayed again. Is anyone surprised? All this and MUCH more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

We're still baffled as to why they don't just as Blizzard for help with the MMO stuff. Nintendo's selling cardboard and everyone loves it. Fable is getting a new game in the series and this time there's not a crazy person at the helm! And after all the news, it's finally time to talk about what everyone played this week.

Episode 197- The Good, The Bad, & The Weird of 2017

This week everyone's excited about taking a look back at the awesome games from 2017! Who doesn't love a good year-end top 5 list? There's also talk of the most disappointing things from the year. But the last show of the year can't end on an unhappy note! Everyone shares what they're looking forward to in 2018! There's also a bit of news: Bungie's still making excuses for issues in Destiny 2 and ARK has a really weird new "feature" in its latest DLC installment.

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 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 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? All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 183- Off Topic: Mass Effect Series

This week's show is a little different than usual so we're calling it an Off Topic show. Oak's out of town and the news is incredibly lacking. In light of that, we had our buddy Newbie on the show and somehow things evolved into a big discussion/debate about the Mass Effect series. If you haven't played the games, there will be spoilers as we chat about everything from the first ME all the way to Andromeda. Are the Salarians the real bad guys? Were there plans for Krogan Reapers? Why does everyone hate Kaiden so much? We'll find out on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 181- Bunkers, Rednecks, & a Lack of DLC

Oak has managed to avoid a permadeath situation in Hellblade. There's still time for him to fail it up though! Baka and Chicken have been on a PUBg binge and they just can't keep quiet about it! Between bouts of PUBg, Chicken managed to start Resident Evil 7. He does his impression of the main villain and everyone dies. Yeah. Grif also started RE7 and scared herself. Now she can't play alone! In the continuing SisLynam stories, this week Grif suffers a hit and run at the hands of her sister in Saints Row. In the news, Sony's still not willing to allow cross-platform play. Is anyone really surprised? Mass Effect Andromeda is getting it's final single-player update before Bioware stops support of the game. That's right, no DLC or future plans after MEA's lackluster performance. That opens up discussion for how games fail at carrying on past a main trilogy. Does anyone do it successfully? Blizzard brings back Battle.net, again surprising no one. Skaven have come to Total War Warhammer! Baka and Chicken are super excited! All that and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Podcast 178- TellTale’s Awesome & ARK Gets Expensive

This week everyone gets caught up in arguing about who the best liar is when it comes to playing Deceit! Grif's checking out Mass Effect Andromeda but is it as good (or bad) as everyone says? Oak, Chicken, & Baka have been struggling in PUBg. Will they ever get that coveted Chicken Dinner? In the news, TellTale announced not one but three new games in the works! New Wolf Among Us, Batman, and the final installment in the Walking Dead series are all on the way! ARK devs are struggling to justify their $60 price tag before launch. And Grif gets a surprise visitor just before the end of the show. All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Podcast 177- Aim for the Butt!

Chicken has been pleasantly surprised by Final Fantasy 15: the mechanics are fun, the food looks amazing, and there's a button that teleports his group back to their car. Pretty sweet!  Grif finished Prey and now has no one to talk to about it since the rest of the guys haven't played it. She also found out this week that her sister is loot ninja! Story time! Oak's trying out his new Steam Link and Baka is stuck trying to figure out how to master the remaining shrines in Breath of the Wild. The news is sparse, but to make up for that everyone shares their favorite co-op games. Lots of memories and discussions to be had about those! All this and more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!
