It's that special time of year for RPGrinders, since it's Frank Day, and that of course means Exiles! After some news and the usual stinkos and sweetos though.

RPGrinders EP 596 - That New Laptop Smell

On this extra stuffed episode, the Grinders discuss Brazilian developers, baseball nonsense, and murder. Not to mention, tons of news, a couple of reviews from Eric, and Frank going to war against the Confederacy. Don't worry about Frank because Confederates always wave the white flag in defeat.

A lot of news including a vague release date for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memories, the pc release of Little Town Hero, the delay of Cyberpunk 2077, and the console release of some Toaplan shmups.

Eric enjoyed the Definitive Editions of Ori and the Blind Forest as well as Xenoblade but Frank can't hide his displeasure with Velocipastor.

For the final show segment, Frank points out the absurdity of praising the treasonous Confederacy. Net to end on such a sour note, the Grinders also talk about some of features of the upcoming Xbox Series X.

The RPGrinders stand with America, not treason!

This episode we have a steady flow of RPG news, the guys talk phrases that are rooted in racism, virtue signaling, and other lively and "fun" stuff.  Erik and Frank review lots of stuff, Break gets a new throne/captains chair, and finally Frank gets peed on! (wait, did i say that out loud?).  Also, Break has four computers.....none of them work for RPGrinders.  I think its time for a second job? ;)   Thanks for listening!  Follow us on Twitter @RPGrinders and join us live every Friday 7EST Twitch.tv/RPGrinders

RPGrinders EP 594 - Frank’s Funko Bunker

The crew does a tiny bit of news before moving on to their stinkos and sweets. Among them, they talk more about the protests and the police brutality continuing to escalate against peaceful protesters, and how our 'President' continues to be a fascist. Afterwards there are some movie reviews from Frank, and we discuss the toll of mental health game developers take in their insanely impossible pursuit of making games more realistically violent. There's also talk about the absurdity of curfews.  Eric also announces his departure from VOGNetwork.com. Be sure to check out the show live on Twitch and Youtube Fridays at 7PM EST!

RPGrinders EP 593 - 1 Puff 4 Sure

On this episode of RPGrinders, the issue of police violence and the murder of George Floyd are addressed. Although time is made for the normal show segments, the issue of how the police treat minorities is important enough to be this episodes main focus. The Grinders even invite their good friend @freak5chaos to join in on the discussion. 

Frank has a lot to say about the police, racism, murder, civil unrest, and years of oppression. He has never hid his feelings about police. He also wants to know how others feel. If you want to defend the police or agree with Frank, just tweet @RPGrinders and let us know.

Even though the topic at hand is of the most importance, the Grinders still have to put on a show. A lot of gaming news stories, including the upcoming Dragon Quest: Adventure of Dai. Adventure of Dai is coming to consoles, phones, arcades, and it's even getting a TV show.  

Fuck the police.

RPGrinders EP 591 - Blahdemic

In this episode of RPGrinders, there is only a small bit of news to get through, although we are continuing to look for deals on console online subscriptions.

RPGrinders EP 590 - Butt Hurt Break

On this episode of RPGrinders, Frank and Eric are almost forced to do the show alone because Break takes things way too seriously. Hurt feelings don't last long and they don't stop the show!

Lately we have had a lot of game delays but this episode's news is all good. Bandai Namco announces Scarlet Nexus for the current and next gen, while Children of Morta gets a new update, and Korean action RPG Bellatia is available now! 

Frank has had a busy week and has a lot of reviews as proof. He has an overall positive attitude for the Purge movies and the series Attack on Titan. Lest we forget this is a gaming podcast, Frank also reviews Call of Duty Modern Warfare remastered.

As usual, the Stinkos take a very serious turn. Racial inequality, broken friendships, the injustice system, and even murder. Luckily, there are always some Sweetos to help us get through.

For the final segment, Frank asks "Are RPGs too long?" It's safe to say that the Grinders are fine with longer games. What do you think? Just tweet us @RPGrinders 

Twitch vs YouTube vs Microsoft vs Sony.....FIGHT!!!
