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 548 - G Rated

The RPGrinders attempt the impossible. Frank, Eric, and Break do an all ages appropriate show. They try to do a show without cussing and with less adult topics. Do they fail or do they triumph? You be the judge!

This jam packed episode is filled with news, reviews, Stinkos, Sweetos, cartoons, advice, and cowbell!

Ciel Fledge, Haven, the TruboGrafx - 16 mini, Songs of the Deep, Little Nightmares, midsommar, Child's Play, and Senran Kagura: Peach Ball are just some of the reviewed/played games and movies.

Dear BreakMan skips the usual topics for some that are more family friendly. Slightly less offensive but still saving the world one tweet at a time. 

The Stinkos and Sweetos deal with some hefty issues but it's important that topics such as rape and Epstein are discussed. 

To end the show on a much higher note, the Grinders list off some of their favorite cartoons! There are too many great cartoons to mention and not enough time. 

Let us know what you think or ask us for advice. Just send a tweet to @RPGrinders and it will get answered on the next live episode!

Cartoons, cussing, and cow bell.
