AggroChat #75 - Diamond Jubilee

This week we had Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra and Thalen. Tam was jet setting around the country but should be back next week. It seems pretty insane that this is already our 75th show. Being our Diamond Jubilee of a sort I am swapping up our introduction a bit in an effort to make it easier to see precisely what games we happen to talk about on a given show. Without further delay here are the games we discussed this week on AggroChat.

Jigoku Kisetsukan
Final Fantasy Record Keeper
Final Fantasy XIV 3.1 Delay
Fallout New Vegas
Mario Maker
Volume
Magic the Gathering: Battle For Zendikar

Couch Podtatoes Ep 62: Remasters and Compilations

The first thing you're probably asking yourself is what happened to the show last week? I made a small announcement on Twitter, but basically my computer managed to crash while editing and I lost the files. We do a little rehash of what we discussed last week before moving onto this week's discussion. You'll probably also notice that the intro music has changed, and that's because after 61 episodes Eri finally admitted to not liking it (but she forgets giving the seal of approval way back when!). She agreed to this new music as well, but we'll see what she says in a year :P

So for the discussion this we we're looking at remasters and compilations, which was spurned mostly from my recent play time with some of these types of games. We attempt to answer the question, "is it too soon sometimes?" That's all there is to it, so grab a couch and listen in!

AggroChat #74 - Force Binds Us

We start of this weeks show by talking about our continued adventures in Diablo 3, and while a some of us have slowed down our progress Grace talks about falling back into the familiar rhythm of chilling out in solo play. With the upcoming September 29th release of Wildstar Free to Play she also talks about spending a lot of time on the test server, and the recent hoverboard racing event testing. Thalen this week spent time venturing into some single player games that had never got around to playing. First we revive our discussion of Wolfenstein New Order and why you should play it for so many different reasons. In a shocker we find out that Thalen never actually played Fallout New Vegas, which spawns a discussion about our appreciation of the game.

Kodra on the other hand spent his week mostly playing a bunch of indie titles and talks about Circa Infinity and The Magic Circle. Magic Circle being the game that he spent a significant amount of time at Pax talking to the Dev about. Additionally we are all jealous of him as he talks about his experience playing Mario Maker, which is essentially Infinite Mario. This spawns a discussion about each of our early attempts at creating content for our friends to play like Excitebike, Wolfenstein, Doom and Descent. Related to Magic Circle, a seperate discussion breaks out about the Stanley Parable and what it says about gamers themselves.

Ashgar is still heavily involved in LBX: Little Battlers Experience and has even gotten in his model kits from last week putting at least one of them together. He helped to clear up some of my confusion that there is in fact a Roleplaying game there, and it is very similar to the style of game that Pokemon is. We also get into a length discussion about Pokemon Go and how the Ingress type game is likely going to change what we are playing next year. There is really no way this is not going to be a huge title, and for the most part we agree that Ingress has been a tech demo leading up to this.

Finally several of us have spontaneously gotten sucked back into Star Wars the Old Republic. Right now it is impossible to go anywhere in the world without being bombarded by Force Awakens merchandise, and after a point I simply could not resist the pull of nostalgia. The best thing about coming back to a game after years of being away is the huge backlog of content available to be played. The current twelve times experience bonus for subscribers helps as well, because you quite literally only have to focus on your class story to get leveled which was always the best part of the game. Ash, Bel and Tam are all caught in the gravity well of this game for the moment, and it sounds like some of our other hosts might have gotten the bug as well. We will have to see next week if we are still talking out it, or if we have gotten it out of our systems.

Couch Podtatoes Ep 60: Talking Points Five

We ran short of any bulky discussion ideas so this week we decided to do another talking points show. This time around we talk about Diablo III, Hearthstone, GTA V, the newly formed YouTube Gaming, Star Citizen and more. It’s a variety of articles pulled from the news of the day, so we’re all over the place but it still ended up being a cohesive package by the end. You know our rants and rambles, so listen on for more!

AggroChat #69 - Ahk Mourn and Key Limes

Last night we had the whole gang back of Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen. Kodra fresh back from Gencon had many tales to tell of his proclivity for LARPing and his further descent into the Magic the Gathering Origins base set. He has now purchased a box, but instead of opening in one sitting he has decided to do something extremely cool with it, turning it into a series of mini draft for him and some of his Seatle area friends. Grace continues to spend time in Wildstar and in an effort to try and catch up Belghast has spent some time leveling there. There was a discussion of the various points that people stall out in that game when they outlevel their quest content. Grace also managed to play through Hatoful Boyfriend enough times to see every possible ending... and is amped about our impending AggroChat show.

For Tam and Ashgar this was a very Sword Art Online week, with Ashgar watching through the entirity of season one so that he can join Tam in playing Hollow Fragment on the PS4. Thalen rekindled his own Magic the Gathering roots as he began playing the brand new free to play Magic Duels. Additionally there is a new event happening in Marvel Heroes where bonus experience is given to playing the Fantastic Four which spawns a conversation about the hero teams we liked growing up. Bel talks about his Bel's Big Adventure Minecraft series and the quirks of playing Minecraft with a singlular purpose, and his adventures on the Everquest II Time Locked server. Finally we talk the elephant in the room... the World of Warcraft Legion expansion announcement from GamesCom. It was a lengthy discussion dense show, and hopefully you will all enjoy it.
