Tonight we talk about a bunch of stuff… starting off with our most recent trip into Guild Wars 2. Since the launch of this game a few of us have been searching trying to figure out exactly why people were so engaged with this game. Finally after seeing Fractals and the updated version of dungeons we get it. Additionally we talk about the Rise of Iron changes to Iron Banner, and a general sense of getting much better rewards in game. Then we talk about the games we left on good terms including a bunch of blasts from the past.

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 #106 - Mostly Overwatch and Demons

Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen discuss a wide range of topics… but mostly Overwatch and Diablo 3 Season 6

This evening Ash, Bel, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen talked about a whole bunch of topics... but the largest amount of that time was devoted to Overwatch. Over the last week a bunch of us have played the game and we had commentary on it. Mostly several of us enjoy the game that is... but mourn the game that could have been with Titan. We also talk about looter shooters in general and the problems The Division has been having with both rampant cheating, and bad loot design. We spend quite a bit of time talking about Diablo 3 Season 6 and the rush that Grace and Belghast have been participating in. Tam spent some time playing Always Sometimes Monsters, which lead into a conversation about the Steam Suggestion Queue. Kodra has been playing Elite Dangerous again, which brings up a discussion of Eve Online. Thalen has recently started the Stick of Truth, and we get into a discussion about the arrival of Ryzom on Steam. This spawns a lengthy conversation about dead MMOs and the sequence in which we played various games. Somewhere in there we also had a bit of a conversation about the Marvel Comics Universe. This is one of the most rambling episodes we have recorded... but also the most true to our real life conversations.
