RPGrinders EP 587 - We’re Not Gonna Protest

This episode of RPGrinders may be shorter but it's not lacking content! Including some sad voice acting news, the pandemic and "Old Man" Frank upping is game! 

It's a shorter news segment but one with a heavy heart. As the Grinders mourn the deaths of two voice actors, Paul Haddad and Keiji Fujwara. 

Not only have we lost 2 voice actors but a sad Stinko segment has 2 more celebrity deaths. The Grinders mourne ring announcer Howard Finkel and prolific actor Brian Dennehy. Not only have we lost famous people but the entire country continues to be ravaged by the terrible COVID-19. How many more lives will be lost? Why do some people continue to fight against the quarantine? 

Even with all the sad news the Grinders keep things upbeat. Reviews of the Netflix Docu-Series Trump: An American Dream, the bloody good time movie VFW, and the very dark series You. 

Before ending this episode, Eric and Frank discuss the upcoming stimulus refund. For the finale segment, Frank wants to know what everyone thinks of the protesters?

Everyone please stay home unless you have to partake in legendary quest for TP.

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!
