RPGrinders EP 584 - I’m cumming, watch out!

On this episode of RPGrinders, Franks and Eric are forced to do the news because Break is too lazy to show up on time. 

Maybe Break chose the right day to be late as there are nearly twenty news articles. Stories including: the announcements of Mary Skelter Finale and Borderlands Legendary Collection for the Switch, a July 1st global release for Sinoalice, Dragon Ball Super DLC coming to Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, and the Code Vein DLC Lord of Thunder is available now. 

It wouldn't be Grinders with out Stinkos and there sure are a lot of reasons to complain. Frank talks about his most recent trip to the hospital. While Eric and Break say goodbye to DPR Jones and Kenny Rogers.

The mood is never down for too long, on RPGrinders. There are plenty of things to celebrate, like a great new question for #DearBreakMan and essential alcohol. 

Before ending the show, Frank has one thing he would like to know. Is this the end of E3? Tell us what you think by sending all questions to @RPGrinders on Twitter. 

 

Medical bills make absorbent toilet paper.

RPGrinders EP 581 - Bonkers the Apocalyptic Clown

The Grinders are riled up and ready for action. It's not hard to be riled up when tackling subjects like Joe Biden, COVID-19, and Daylight Savings Time. Video games, politics, and pandemics, oh my!

The game that spawned the term "Metroidvania" makes a surprising appearance on the mobile platforms, the Turbografx 16 mini is delayed, and the Darius Cozmic Collection 2 is dated for the winter of 2020. 

Frank apologizes for his previous comments on COVID-19 and now sees it as a threat. Break and Frank disagree on the severity but they agree on the US governments failures. As usual, the Trump administration lies to the American people and puts some of our most vulnerable at unnecessary risk.

With the political field narrowing, Frank is feeling the Bern. Will the Democratic establishment give Frank what he so desperately wants or will they give us Creepy Uncle Joe Biden? America needs someone that can defeat a cult leader.

Tenacious D.....nied!

RPGrinders EP 578 - #SadHarmonica

It's Valentine's Day and love is in the air. The RPGrinders celebrate the holiday the best way they know how, with a brand new episode! Packed with sweetos, stinkos, jrpg news, politics, cowbells, security cameras, and love.

A short news week gives the Grinders plenty of time to talk about the failures of Bioware and Anthem. As well as the upcoming release of Katana Kami, Nioh shipping 3 million units, and the LIPS dialogue system in Sakura Wars. 

Eric gives a spoiler free review of the new Sonic the Hedgehog movie, followed by Frank's review of Dead Lands.

Per the usual, the stinkos are dominated by the orange menace. The insanity cannot end soon enough and it cant sour Frank's mood. His sweeto goes to another Bernie Sanders victory.

For the free for all, the Grinders talk about superstition. How do they feel about superstition? Do they have their own? Why do people have superstitions? 

In the bedroom, does Lois Lane make Clark Kent role play as Batman?

The cape. The cowl. No pants.

RPGrinders EP 575 - Resting Bitch Face In Space

Frank, Eric, and Break are back for another technologically impaired episode of RPGrinders. The video won't work, Twitch's audio glitches, and Break's computer issues are not enough to stop the show! 

Today's news is filled with release dates and windows. Ruin Factory 4 Special releases on February 28th in Europe and February 25th in North America, Only the Banner of the Maid releases on Valentine's Day, and Pika Pika Nurse Monogatari comes out in April. 

Frank and Eric give spoiler free reviews of Zombieland 2, season 2 of One Punch Man, and Toradora! Break reviews the Netflix series Unbelievable, detailing the hunt for a serial rapist and the trauma of the victims. 

Once again, Frank and Break spend several minutes complaining about the state of politics. The people elected to uphold the Constitution have a huge choice ahead of them: do they deny facts, truth, and the Constitution to protect one man or do they do the right thing and remove a blatant criminal before it gets worse?

For the Free For All, Frank wants to know "Can you be a fan of a game without playing it?". Tweet us at @RPGrinders and let us know what you think. 

 

Nancy Drew killed the Hardy Boys and she would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those meddling kids!
