Ready Player One Spoilercast

Here is a very special episode of the Game Grinder podcast dedicated specifically to the new movie based on the novel by Ernest Cline, Ready Player One! Everything is fair game here, so if you don't want the book or the movie to be spoiled for you, stay away!


Episode 58: PUBG Mobile, the Tomb Raider Movie, a Men in Black Reboot, and Spiderman!

This week's podcast is particularly nerd-centered. We get sidetracked more than a few times trying to talk about the Tomb Raider movie and Stephen tells us his feelings on it. Then we get into a very confusing subject in the Men in Black reboot coming in 2019. PUBG mobile and Fortnite mobie go head to head, and we get into what games have (or have not) been taking over our lives as of late.


Episode 57: Fortnite Mobile, Iron Harvest, and Game Informers Top 300!

Its a battle for who's the greatest. PUBG and Fortnite take their battle to a new device. Kickstarter continues to crowd source some gems in gaming. Emulation continues to challenge Nintendo's "Classics." New movies and games are just around the corner. And taking a look back, a list of the 300 greatest games comes out.


Episode 56: Valve is Making Games Again! (Also Some Other News)

It's definitely announcement season, as even Valve has come out of the woodwork to tell us that they are working on games! Kristin Wiig has been cast as the next Wonder Woman villain, Super Smash Brothers is coming out, and the White House is still going on about violent video games. Listen in for your favorite news and banter about the games and nerd culture you love so much!


Episode 55: Battlefield V, Marvel's Fresh Start, and VIOLENCE

Star Wars is thrown in there, as usual, and we discuss some of our favorite titles right now, including Half-Life, FTL, and the hit book by Earnest Cline, Ready Player One. Also, stick around till the end for a very special givaway! (


Episode 54: Orcs, Panthers, and... Hedgehogs?

It's the highs and lows of the nerd world this week. Black Panther is having a huge impact on the world, but no place more so than the real place in Illinois, Wauconda. We also talk about the past and future of the Warcraft series, as Blizzard has announced a new patch for Warcraft 3. Our topic of discussion this week is about "party lines". Marvel vs. DC, Batman vs. Superman, Mario vs. Sonic. Why do nerds feel the need to choose sides when all of these things are so great?...


Episode 52: Game Developer Love and Teasers Galore!

It's a teaser trailer extravaganza! Between Venom, Deadpool 2, Solo, and Westworld, we have so much to talk about! First, though, we mention Billy Mitchell and his Donkey Kong emulator scandal and talk about why it's important that gamers maintain their integrity. Our topic of discussion this week is "games with continual updates". Between Rainbow 6 Seige, The Division, No Man's Sky, and many others, these developers are continuing to show love to a game that should have failed long ago....


Episode 51: Aliens in Far Cry 5, Nintendo's Big Risk, and CHEATERS

We get in depth with all three of those titles and also find time to get into Blizzard's announcement of World of Warcraft Classic servers and their new expansion, The Battle for Azeroth. We also parse through the new Horizon Zero Dawn DLC, and we argue about content for the Curse of Osiris DLC for Destiny 2. With Thor: Ragnarok and Bladerunner...


Episode 48: Iron Banner, Cuphead, and Battlefront II

With some limited Destiny 2 talk, the crew explores some hot topics this week, including "difficulty in video games" and "pay to win" money grabs.

Episode 45: Rabbids, Game of Thrones, and Sonic Mania

It's a short week, as we spent the better part of the day recording our upcoming Dungeons and Dragons episodes, but we still found time to geek out over a few select topics! Game of Thrones stole the latter half of the show, but we finally got to get our hands dirty with a bit of Sonic Mania and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle!

Our Open Discussion...


D&D Episode 3: The Battle of Nightstone
