AggroChat #122 - Glimmers of Hope

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra and Thalen talk about a bunch of stuff… with a significant emphasis on the launch of World of Warcraf Legion

Tonight we are down a Tam thanks to Pax West Shenanigans, and in theory at least we will be talking soon about those experiences. However for the time being… we talk a bunch of stuff but mostly World of Warcraft Legion. Right now Ashgar, Belghast and Grace are playing… and talk about their experiences with the launch, and the revisions to the game. The long story short is that we all seem to be enjoying ourselves. The main story is still frustrating, but the sub stories are amazing. We also talk a little bit about the game of the month Tales of Maj’Eyal, largely related to a few tips for getting started and things that players should really avoid getting bogged down in. Finally Kodra talks about his experiences with Deus Ex and Necropolis in recent play sessions for both.

Things Discussed - World of Warcraft - Legion - Class Halls - Spec Fantasy - Leveling Content - Tales of Maj’Eyal - Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - Necropolis

AggroChat #121 - Fizzylock’s Telekinetics

Ashgar, Belghast, Kodra, Tam and Thalen have an unplanned show about stuff and things.

This evening we were originally planning on recording the AggroChat Game Club show for The Witness. However as we got close to recording events happened, and we will be rescheduling that later this month. That said the September game is announced in this show, and from that point onwards we charted a destination through madness. This is one of those super meandering shows, that covered a bunch of only semi-related topics.

Things We Talked about: Tales of Maj'eyal - September Game of Month - Nethack - Vampire the Masquerade/Requiem - Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Final Fantasy XIV - The Rising Year 3 - Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - Deus Ex Go - Sweetness and Lightning Anime - New Game Anime - Game Development Industry - Orange Anime - Breaking Events - WoW Legion Launch - The Sleeper - Raiding in Everquest - Fires of Heaven - Green Dragons of WoW

AggroChat #120 - Can’t Go Back Home

This week Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen address a listener comment regarding our feelings about WoW.

It feels like every week I say “something weird happened” when describing our podcast. I might simply be that we have no real “normal” state to fall back on, and that everything is essentially new and strange. That said I feel like this week is on an island of its own. After last week’s podcast I had a listener pull me aside and comment that it sounded like it physically pained us to talk about Warcraft. I personally didn’t realize this until I went back and listened a bit, and I can absolutely see how someone could have that take away. More often than not we just have super confused feelings about the game, and tonight we delve into this… and it leads to a whole sequence of topics including the loss of “junk culture” and the businessification of things we love. For some of us you definitely can’t ever truly go back home.

Topics On The Show: Listener Comment - Conflicted Feelings About Warcraft - Why Tam Hates WoW - Loss of Junk Culture - Businessification of Comics and Games - Hobbyism and Creative Industries -Metal Gear Solid 5 - Overwatch - Last Bastion Cinematic

AggroChat #119 - Still Not Prepared

Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam, and Thalen talk World of Warcraft Legion event, Starbound, No Man's Sky and Final Fantasy XV

This week we inadvertently have a show about things that are not quite prepared in one way or another. First up we talk about our frustrations with the Broke Shore cinematics for both the Alliance and Horde in World of Warcraft. We also talk about the positive things that this event is bringing, but mostly frustrations about the turn in the story. We talk about the fraught PC launch of No Man’s Sky and how Belghast is the only member of our crew able to actually get it running on his machine. However since he could we talk at length about his experiences. All of the NMS talk got Kodra amped to play some Starbound on our private server. We talk a little bit of Diablo Season 7 and how we were not quite prepared for it with everything else going on… so we ended up rolling an army of demon hunters for speed clearing. Finally we talk about how Final Fantasy XV seems to be delayed once more, as details have been leaked on how to update the date on the big retail standees. So much not preparedness to go around, caused us to record an extremely long show.

Things we discussed: Frustrations with Broken Shore Cinematics - WoW Legion Event - Legion expansion in general - Starbound Launch - No Man’s Sky PC Frustrations - First Several Hours with the Game - Diablo Season 7 Launch - Final Fantasy XV and VIII

My initial thoughts on the PC launch, and issues with the supposed "minimum requirements" Still had a lot of fun. Just make sure you purchase from a retailer that will let you return, in case it does not like your machine.

AggroChat #118 - The Cities: Skylines Show

Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam, Thalen and Inky talk about Cities: Skylines the July AggroChat Game Club Game

After putting it off a week due to folks travelling, this week we record the July AggroChat Game Club show for our title of the month Cities: Skylines. In this episode we talk about just how deep the rabbit hole of simulation goes with this would be king of city and mayor simulators. In many ways this show is the tail of many failed cities and a handful of successful ones. It is also when we learn just how bad of a mayor Belghast would be. This title is the heir to the Sim City lineage, so we ask the question how it stacks up. We also ask the question if city simulation is really that fun? Additionally we get into a side tangent about wastewater management.

AggroChat #117 - Death to Garrisons

Belghast, Grace, Neph, Tam and Thalen lack topic ideas… but then record a lengthy show on WoW, FFXIV, Pokemon and other stuff.

This week we are down both Ashgar and Kodra, and in part as a result… and part because we just adore her we talked our friend Neph into joining us. Before we start recording a podcast we generally try and scribble down a rough list of topics to use as an outline of where to leave the conversation next. After fifteen minutes of dead air… we finally start coming up with a few things and this weeks show is a result. We talk about the concept of “Peak Pokemon” and the glee that the media seems to have at heralding the downfall of the game. With Grace on my side we revisit the discussion about the Legion class changes, and our happiness to completely bury the concept of the Garrison and get out into the world and see it again. We do a deeper dive into the deepest dungeon in Final Fantasy XIV and Tam and Neph’s experiences leveling alts this week there. We talk a little bit about Dragon Age Inquisition, and my discovery of how Damage over Time classes work. So for a show where we didn’t think we had much to say… we certainly said a whole lot of it.

  • Peak Pokemon
  • World of Warcraft
  • Class Changes
  • Death to Garrisons
  • Disappointment in Game
  • Final Fantasy XIV Deep Dungeon
  • Yokai Watch
  • Dragon Age Inquisition
  • DoT Classes

AggroChat #116 - Legion and the Deep Dungeon

This Week Ashgar, Belghast and Tam are abandoned by their compatriots and talk FFXIV, WoW, Starbound and Overwatch

This week we had a really strange sequence of events that lead to quite literally half of our crew being out for one reason or another. Of all of them I think we happen to be the most jealous of Grace who managed to score tickets to the Final Fantasy Symphony tour thing that is roaming the country. This was the week of big patches with both the 3.35 patch in Final Fantasy XIV bringing us the Palace of the Dead, and World of Warcraft getting 7.0.3 containing all of the Legion class changes and new Transmog system. Additionally we saw the actual launch of Starbound and with it something unusual in the early access community… significant changes being patched into the final version. So this week we have a whole slew of topics related to all of those points.

Final Fantasy XIV 3.35 - Palace of the Dead - World of Warcraft 7.0.3 - Legion Class Changes - Survival Hunter - Outlaw Rogue - Starbound Launch - Pre-Launch is Launch - Overwatch Healing Sniper

AggroChat #115 - Murder Hobo: The Video Game

This week Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam, Thalen discuss a bunch of stuff, some of it not Pokemon Go

This marks the second week of the majority of our cast being completely enthralled by the apparent phenomenon that is Pokemon Go. So as you would expect this weeks episode is a hefty bit of our hosts recounting their recent experiences. Pokemon Go is a story engine, and we have many stories to tell as a result. Additionally we talk a bit about Augmented Reality gaming in general, and whether or not Pokemon Go is the "Everquest" or the "World of Warcraft" of this genre. This week also saw us "getting the band back together" as it were and raiding for the first time in months in Final Fantasy XIV. We discuss our feeling about raiding again and the hopes of what we might accomplish in the coming months.

Grace and Bel made their way into the Legion Beta finally for World of Warcraft so we discuss a bit in the way of the set up for that expansion. Bel talks at length about his experiences playing a Demon Hunter and why he thinks this might be a class Tam would actually like. Tam deftly deflects and turns the discussion back around to the story of Final Fantasy XIV and our feelings about what seems to be the wrapping of this expansion. In other news we discuss two similar gaming experiences in Necropolis and the brand new chapter of the Monster Hunter saga. Finally we get into a length discussion about the ramifications of Pokemon Go and what it might mean for Nintendo and accepting that the mobile platform is actually viable.

Topics: Pokemon Go, Augmented Reality Gaming, Everquest or World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV Raiding, Legion Beta, Demon Hunter, Final Fantasy Story, Necropolis, Monster Hunter, Nintendo Mobile Gaming, Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow.

AggroChat #114 - Purveyors of Fine Pokemon

This week Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam, Thalen and special guest Inky Discuss Pokemon Go and small bit of FFXIV

This week the world has caught a horrible case of pokemonitis… and our stalwart AggroChat crew have not been immune. Instead of hanging out at home… we seem to have all been roaming our respective neighborhoods looking for invisible critters. So as a result we recorded a show that is almost entirely Pokemon Go talk. Towards the end we discuss our return to Final Fantasy XIV this week and our attempt to “get the band back together”. My Pokemans… Let me show you them!

  • Pokemon Go
  • Final Fantasy XIV
