Episode 155- Paid Reviews & Upcoming Releases

Baka and Chicken tried out For Honor and they're ready to offer a pretty deep look at the game.

Nintendo made an ad for the Switch directed at gamers who want to play while on the toilet. Prey gets a release date but will it be a game everyone picks up at launch? What companies can you really trust for day one buys at this point?  And the crew veers into a ramble about reviews and ethics. It's a wild ride.

Gabe Newell teased a new Valve project set in the Half-Life and Portal universe but it's not a continuation of either series. Will we ever get a third installment of any Valve game?!

Episode 152- Catching Up and Looking Forward

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.

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!
