RPGinders EP 630 - RLG Rush Limbaugh Grinders

This super sized episode of RPGrinders features the return of Break, tons of RPG news, 2 more rounds of the hardest tournament ever created, and not one but two questions for #DearBreakMan!

2021 is starting to look like a fantastic year to be a gamer. New games like Bravery Network Online and Empire of Ember are coming to Steam. The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD remaster is coming to the Switch on July 16th. Legend of Mana is releasing on June 24th. And the poorly named but interesting looking tactical RPG "Project Triangle Strategy" has been announced for the Switch.

Dear BreakMan returns with 2 of the most important questions facing humanity at this time. The Grinders explain how to handle the death of a child's pet and they address the controversy around wearing "White Face".

This episode was one of the longest because of the most epic battle in the history of humanity! Sixteen SNES games are left but only one can be considered The Greatest Super Nintendo Game of All Time. Will the pastel levels of Super Mario World 2 with stand the firepower of UN Squadron? Will the Zombies eat all the neighbors or will Kirby? Can NBA Jam boomshakalaka Link? Can 3 Vikings stop a plumber riding on the back of a dinosaur? Only 8 games are left. Who will win?!

 

Flesh tone condoms for everyone!

RPGinders EP 627 - What wouldn’t you do for a Klondike Bar?

On this episode of RPGrinders, the Grinders answer the toughest questions of 2021! Only they have the guts to give the real answer to the age old question, "What would you do for a Klondike bar?" And they solve one of the worlds greatest mysteries, "What is the Greatest 80s Television Theme Song?"

As always, the Grinders start with the show with latest RPG and visual novel news. This episodes news includes: The first big patch for Cyberpunk 2077 has arrived but does it make the game worth playing? Biomutant has been given a May 25th release date and some pricey special editions. Elder Scrolls Online is receiving new DLC with the upcoming June release of Blackwood. And Shattered Tale of the Forgotten King is coming to steam on Feb 17th.

It isn't an episode of RPGrinders with out some reason to complain. The Stinkos give the Grinders a perfect chance to get things off their chests. As usual, the government plays heavily into their frustrations. Elected officials getting minor punishments for major crimes and how the "elite" play by different rules.

The Grinders wouldn't do Stinkos with out something happy to wash away the stank. The Sweetos make everything better and so does the fact that average people teamed up to exploit the same stock market flaws used by the "elite". Wall Street is not a true representation of the economy or the status of the American people. They are not happy to have the average person beat them at their own game. 

With all of that out of the way, the Grinders will finally answer histories greatest mystery! Did aliens visit ancient Egypt? Do Bigfoot and Nessy still hold their annual poker tournament? When a bear shits in the woods, does an angel get it's wings? Will God ever pay Frank for the bet they made during the Jurassic period? When Harmie signs a huge music contract will he immediately replace Break (Or will he wait a couple of days first)? Where does Eric store his Big Giant Robots to keep them dry from the rain? These are all good questions, but the biggest mystery in the history of humanity is: What is the Greatest 80s Television Theme song?!

With only four tunes left, who will win? Will a plan come together for Mr. T and the A-Team or will Michael Knight and KITT drive off into the sunset? Do you want to go where everybody knows your name or fly above it all in a badass helicopter?

 

The Woof of Wall Street

RPGrinders EP 625 - Back in the Sekiro Saddle Again

I seriously think Eric would explode if they went too long without playing a Souls game. But in all seriousness, the crew gets through a short news week, with one article of not dealing with Dragon Quest getting Fair Use laws. Then Eric has a review of Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice and Bloodstained Classic Mode. Frank has a review of Demon's Souls. Then there's the usual stinkos and sweetos. Eric can't get the weekend work off his back, but at least it seems like a normal hours shift being locked in for the foreseeable future is something to be glad about.  We finally get through the next rounds of the tournament for the Greatest 80's show theme of all time! Be sure to go to Eric's patreon and support them if you like their work. Also, be sure to check the podcast live on Fridays at 7pm EST on Twitch/Youtube!

RPGinders EP 624 -The Penetrator!

It's finally a Happy New Year because Break Man makes his long overdue return! Fresh out of Twitter jail and joined by Harmie. With Break's return, the trilogy is complete. The Rpgrinders (Frank, Eric, and Break) rise once again

2021 is going to be a busy gaming year, so the Grinders better prepare their selves for a lot of news articles. Stories like: Nintendo buying the developer of Luigi's Mansion, production ending for all but one PS4 model, Her Love In the Force an Otome police academy visual novel is releasing on January 21st, and a new PS4 demo of Ys IX: Monstrum Nox is available now.

Even though the Grinders try to keep the show upbeat, they always take time to address some of the week's worst news. Not much could be worse than the attack on the United States capital. It has left everyone in a state of shock. Now we have fear for where this might lead, in the future. We are sad for our country, and our fellow Americans. We are angry that domestic TERRORISTS were ever able to accomplish so much! We are mad that those TERRORISTS are still being enabled by right wing media. 

Frank, Eric, and Break hope to never again witness such a disgraceful event. 

With the bad news out of the way, the Grinders have to tackle the most important topic of the month. What is the Greatest 80s Television Theme Song? Will Star Trek: TNG boldly overcome Lee Majors performing the Unknown Stunt Man? Believe It Or Not became a radio hit but can it beat Simon & Simon? Is a brand new life around the bend for Who's The Boss or glory for Night Court's saxophone? Will Knight Rider drive off into the sunset or will turkeys fly for WKRP in Cincinnati?

 

Only 32 songs left. Which one will reign supreme.

 

 

 

Where ever you go, whatever you do, always remember to was your genitals.
