RPGrinders EP 557 - Batman and Eric

It's Friday the 13th and there is a full moon. Horror is in the air and Frank couldn't be happier. 

After a week of peace and quiet, Frank and Eric are forced to put up with the return of Break Man and his cowbell! But Frank gets the last laugh as he forces Break to read the news and butcher Japanese names. 

It's a short news week, so the Grinders have plenty of time to spend on Bug Fables, Yo Kai Watch 4, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Ring Fit Adventure, Nioh 2, Romancing Saga 3, Star OCean, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, and Umihara Kawase BaZooka.

A Dynamic Duo Highscapade keeps the mood upbeat. Even Stinkoes about Joe Biden, Funimation, and Nicalis can't ruin the show. In fact, Frank is in such a good mood that the Grinders talk about one of his favorite subjects: horror movies. 

Big Money, Big Prizes, I Love It!

Finally, the Free for All is about talking about the idea of a Universal Basic Income.

RPGrinders EP 554 - Microbursts in the Pants

In this episode of RPGrinders, the guys finally answer the most important question in the history of existence: Which Superhero would they want to be in DC and in the MCU?! 

The show starts out with a long JRPG news segment that includes the releases dates of Kingdom Under Fire 2, Final Fantasy 8 Remastered, Dragon Star Varnir, Cat Quest 2, and more. 

Eric reviews the action movie Hobbs and Shaw as well as the horror movie Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

Predictably, the Stinkos are dominated by the Crook and Chief. Frank and Break each have different complaints about the failures of the Oval Office. 

With only one week of unofficial summer left, Frank wants to know what everyone thinks about the end of summer? Are they looking forward to the chill or already missing the burn? 

Shit bursts or bursts of shit?

RPGrinders EP 551 - To Crawl Or Not To Krull

In this episode of RPGrinders, the guys discuss everything from Pirates to Presidents. They even spend some time talking about the Titty Dungeons.

Sony will soon stop repairing PSP-3000's, Outer Worlds is coming to the Switch, and Minoria getting a release date are just some of the many news articles.

Eric gets the honor of doing this episode's only review, the hurricane horror movie Crawl. While Break would prefer they reviewed the fantasy classic, Krull. 

There are some Stinkos outside the world of politics but the Racist and Chief is the primary focus. It's hard to not focus on a man that incites so much violence and hate. How many more videos do we have to see of his supporters attacking non-violent protesters? Between the fear mongering and the death penalty, when will the hatred end?

Returning to happier subjects, Frank gets an awesome Sweeto. The ultimate metal head scored himself tickets to Knotfest 2019. 

Frank's Sweeto leads into the discussion of favorite music genres. The Grinders spend a lot of time talking about some of their favorites, like Jazz, Metal and Classic Rock. The Rolling Stones and Metallica are just a couple of the many bands mentioned. 

Let us know what bands and music genres you like. Just send a tweet to @RPGrinders and let us know what great music we skipped. As well as your #DearBreakMan questions. No question goes unanswered because we will not fail humanity! 

Morals? Where we're going, we don't need morals.

RPGrinders EP 550 - Loving that CooCooSqueaky

In this episode of RPGrinders, the crew talks some new despite the relative slowness of the season setting in before the storm in a month from now. Afterwards, the usual Dear Breakman column gets more questions answered from the Sagely one themselves. Then there is talk of politicians and the looming return of capital punishment. Eric also reviews Is it Wrong to try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, and the spinoff series and film. Frank reviews B-movie Lavalantula. All in all, a solid episode of nonsense. Be sure to check out the show live on Fridays at 7PM EST on Twitch and Youtube!
