Episode 152- Catching Up and Looking Forward

Oak and Grif carry on while Baka and Chicken are out for the week. With a lack of noteworthy news, Oak and Grif spend most of the show catching up on what they've been playing since our last show.

Episode 150- Patching Dynasty Mistakes

Chicken finally got his hands on the latest Dynasty Warriors game. And then he immediately made the biggest in game mistake possible... Baka has new models to paint for his Blood Bowl board game. 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. And finally, Hello Games have broken radio silence and launched a big patch for No Man's Sky that will hopefully implement some missing features from the game. Is it enough to placate the disgruntled players? All this and much more on this week's Infinite Respawn Podcast!

Episode 149- Floppy Watchdog Assassins

This week the crew might be short one member, but that's not slowing them down! Baka and Chicken talk new Starbound adventures. Baka's upset about the SNES. Grif is being forced to play Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Ubisoft thought it'd be a good idea to put a vagina in Watchdogs 2. Turns out that's not such a bright idea.

One of the crew is skeptical, but everyone else seems to be excited. This week the voice actor's guild went on strike after a lack of equitable response from their employers.

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!

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 138- Walking Legion Ark

It's been a busy week for the IR crew! Chicken, Baka, and Grif came down with a case of Legion fever starting around 2am Tuesday morning. Seems like it's not letting up! The new World of Warcraft expansion has definitely got them talking about all the things that Blizzard really wowed them with. (harhar) In news not related to the the MMORPG titan, TellTale's made a few announcements about release dates. Chicken is looking forward to the next episode of the Batman game as well as a new season of Walking Dead. Is he possibly too attached to Clementine? Early Access title ARK: Survival Evolved has just released it's first "finished" paid DLC. Yes, a game that isn't even in full launch is releasing paid DLC packs. The reviews are understandably mixed. A remastered Mass Effect collection is now off the table. The CoD Modern Warfare remaster is still strapped to Infinite Warfare, but will it stay that way? 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!
