AggroChat #136 - Star Wars Gone Rogue

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra and Tam talk a bunch of games... and then Star Wars Rogue One

This week we are recording a bit of a special show in that we have a bunch of gaming stuff to talk about… but also Rogue One happened. So as a result we are dividing the show in essentially two parts. The first part we talk about a bunch of gaming topics, and in the second part we give an intermission of sorts to let folks know we are about to delve into a spoilery discussion of the new Star Wars film… Rogue One. For those really cautious our spoilery discussion begins around 56 minutes into the podcast.

On the non-spoiler side of the table we talk about The Dawning event in Destiny and how awesome the Sparrow Racing League is. This causes a brief offshoot conversation about how we actually grip our controllers. A few of the crew have been playing Hex the digital CCG that many of us backed eons ago in kickstarter so there is some discussion about its current state. Bel talks about the Warcraft community Icecrown Challenge charity event. Bel also talks about his experiences playing Let it Die the Darksoulsian Rogue-Like set in a Neo Tokyo setting. Finally wrapping up the pre Star Wars discussion is some talk about the 2nd edition of the 7th Sea Pen and Paper game.

Topics Discussed - Destiny - The Dawning - Sparrow Racing League - Controller Grips - Hex - Hearthstone - World of Warcraft - Icecrown Challenge - bit.ly/icecrown2016 - Let It Die - 7th Sea - Star Wars: Rogue One

AggroChat #135 - Looks Like A Kahuna

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra and Tam talk Pokemon and a whole list of other topics.

Tonight we got a bit of late start, but once things got rolling we recorded a proper show. Last week we had pushed off the topic of Pokemon Sun and Moon because we literally ran out of time. We start recording around 9 pm CST and when it is past midnight… we know we are in trouble. So we talk a bit about the game and things that folks have noticed about it. Several of us are not terribly far along… others have beaten the game. Grace talks about her addiction to Justice Monsters Five and how no other games really matter at all.

Bel goes on a discussion about his feelings about various streaming options and why he is moving towards Beam. Bel talks about how this is the year that he stopped browsing steam, because there is just too much random stuff out there. This spawns a conversation about games that get lost in the mix… like Obsidian’s recent release of Tyranny. This oddly spawns another contorted shift as Bel talks about that he figures out why he doesn’t really enjoy Halo games. We shift gears and talk a bit about Final Fantasy XIV and the Alexander Turn 11 fight. Finally we wrap things up with some talk about the new Star Wars Destiny Collectible Card Game.

Discussion points: Pokemon Sun and Moon - Justice Monsters Five - Twitch vs Hitbox vs Beam - Browsing Steam - Tyranny - Bel and Halo - Final Fantasy XIV - Alexander Turn 11 - Star Wars Destiny

AggroChat #130 - Ra Ra Rasputin

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace and Thalen talk about stuff...
This week we have a significantly smaller crew because Tam and Kodra actually enjoy going out into the real world sometimes. They got invited to a Halloween party, and we are left holding down the fort. The show is dedicated to the Ra Ra Rasputin video that Tam infected us with this week, and our inability to get it out of our heads. As far as actual commentary we talk Stellaris, the disappointment of Festival of the Lost, the insanity that is the retribution artifact hidden appearance, and some discussion of the Nintendo Switch among other topics that pop into the stream of consciousness that is our podcast.

Topics Discussed - Ra Ra Rasputin - https://youtu.be/WhPvJOnHotE - Stellaris Leviathans - Expansion - Destiny - Festival of the Lost - World of Final Fantasy - World of Warcraft Hidden - Artifacts - Emerald Nighmare - Karazhan Attunements - Nintendo Switch

AggroChat #128 - Warrior of Moderation

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Kodra and Tam discuss Geek Girl Con, Destiny, The Kunark Effect, and Final Fantasy XIV patch 3.4

Tonight we were down Thalen and Grace, but continued on… all the while typhoon rains battered Tam and Kodra. The core goal of this week’s show was to discuss the Final Fantasy XIV 3.4 Soul Surrender patch, and the changes to the game and world that were hinted by it. Additionally we talk about some of the changes coming to FFXIV in 4.0 that were announced at Fanfest. However in addition to this big topic we landed on some discussion about the awesome Geek Girl Con that took Kodra away from us last weekend, as well as Tam venturing into Destiny this week and talking about some of his experience. Squeezed somewhere in the middle is a discussion about why Legion feels different and what Bel calls the “Kunark Effect”. Finally one last note… Bel is on a brand new computer and with it a different editing environment. If you hear anything bizarre please let us know.

Topics Discussed - Geek Girl Con 2016 - Destiny Taken King and Rise of Iron - Legion and the Kunark Effect - Final Fantasy XIV patch 3.4 and Fanfest

AggroChat #125 - Recycled Assets

This week Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen talk games and stuff and things... mostly things

This week we kick off the show with a bizarre dream Belghast had about an AggroChat road trip, and it sort of just devolves from there. We discuss a lot of things, including a lengthy discussion about how whales subsidizing other players… is absolutely not just a thing for free to play games and is in fact evidence in Magic the Gathering as well. Other topics range from board games as video games, to the Rise of Iron Destiny expansion. We also talk about the madness that was Mythic+ mode in World of Warcraft and our recent experiences with that game. Was a fun show to record that meandered like mad, so if that is your thing… this is the recording for you.

Topics Discussed - Kodra Child Prodigy - Commander Keen - Rad Rogers - 20XX - Armello - Broken Board Games - Talisman - Adventure Games - Fantasy Flight Games - Living Card Games - Magic the Gathering - Rise of Iron Expansion - Mythic+ - WoW Things

AggroChat #123 - Purposeful Piddling

This week Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra and Tam talk Pax West 2016, Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns, and World of Warcraft Legion

This week we have a bizarre show that somehow covers a lot of content without us actually realizing it. Since Tam and Kodra attended Pax West last week we went into a discussion about all of the stuff they saw there. From there we branch out into a discussion about Guild Wars 2 and Tam recently picking the game up after talking to a friend about it. We largely discuss how the game has improved since launch and that Tam, Ash and Kodra are enjoying in it. Finally we wrap up the evening talking about World of Warcraft Legion and some of the experiences Grace and Belghast have after hitting the new level cap and experiencing World Quests.

Things We Discussed - Pax West 2016 - Dishonored 2 - Prey - 20XX - Open Sorcery - Thornwatch - Star Wars Destiny CCG - Hacknet - Elder Scrolls: Legends - Raging River Card - Elder Scrolls as MTG Colors - Duelyst - Speedrunners - Ultimate Chicken Horse - Pax Dev - Pax Panels - Guild Wars 2 - Heart of Thorns - World of Warcraft - Legion - World Quests

AggroChat #107 - Objectifying Corgis

Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Inky discuss a truly dizzying number of topics the largest bit focused on Stellaris

This week we welcome back our sometimes host Inky... and I apparently get her confused with one of the other Pacman ghosts. The title of this episode doesn't really relate to the discussion other than it was a hilarious line that slipped out there somewhere along the way. This week folks played a lot of Stellaris in both single and multiplayer configurations. We delve into this game and its relation to other 4X games, and why this one clicks for some better than the normal fare. We take a whirlwind trip through Fallout 4 and The Sims, before discussing Twitch Streaming. I talk for a bit about my revised experiences with the new Doom reboot, and why I consider it far better than my early multiplayer experiences. Grace talks about her return to Final Fantasy XIV and how much she loves healing butts. This kicks off a conversation about MMOs and Raiding and winds up with Inky and I pining for Hellgate London again. Finally we wrap things up with a discussion about Uncharted and the whole "cinematic game" trend of the 2000s.

Topics Discussed

  • Adorable Birbs
  • Stellaris
  • Fallout 4
  • Master of Orion
  • Crusader Kings
  • The Sims 4
  • Stardew Valley
  • Animal Crossing
  • Twitch and Streaming
  • Doom
  • Final Fantasy XIV
  • Destiny
  • World of Warcraft
  • Raiding
  • Hellgate London
  • Uncharted

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.

Topics Discussed

  • Overwatch
  • Destiny
  • The Division
  • Looter Shooters
  • Diablo 3 Season 6
  • Always Sometimes Monsters
  • Steam Suggestion Queue
  • Elite Dangerous

AggroChat #104 - Star Wars and Design

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen talk about the best Star Wars stories and also Level Design constructs

Tonight we had a bit of a strange show, that traversed a wide number of topics. First Ashgar talks about a game that he and Belghast played at Pax South called Stories: The Path of Destinies and how it is a good game in spite of largely being overlooked because of the horrible title. Belghast goes into a discussion of the “Sherpa” culture in Destiny and how it shapes player's actions in random groups. Kodra talks about Eterna the logical successor to Folding, which strives to solve the medical problem of properly sequencing RNA… and at the same time being a good puzzle game. We get into a length discussion about level design constructs and what makes a universally good design. Finally we delve into the topic mentioned last week, as we try and decide if there are more good Star Wars games than bad ones. We also get into a discussion about what the best Star Wars story was.

Topics Discussed:

  • Stories: Path of Destinies
  • Sherpa Culture in Destny
  • Eterna
  • Level Design Constructs
  • Good Star Wars Games
  • Best Star Wars Story

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, and Tamrielo talk about stuff and are not chipmunks!

This week we seem to have worked out the technical difficulties we had last week, and I regret to inform you that Chipmunk Belghast has left the building. Episodes 99 and 100 both had their issues and I believe those are finally behind us. Tonight we talk about both the esoteric and the tangible and lead off with a discussion about Randomized Loot versus Predictable loot... and apparently Belghast really enjoys chasing unicorns. From there we dive into a conversation about the insane grind at was getting the extra bank tab in Diablo 3 Season 5. We press forward into a discussion about Belghast aparently deciding he really likes good PVP and Grace talking about the divisiveness of the latest Wildstar world event. Kodra restarts Dark Souls and with Tam they contrast it with Bloodbourne. We talk about the latest craze that seems to be Nintendo discovering there is an internet and mobile gaming with Miitomo. Finally we talk about Adeptcon and the new Infinity Rule Book, and the Shadows Over Innistrad Magic the Gathering Expansion.

All the Topics!

  • Unicorns
  • Random Loot Drops

AGGROCHAT #94 – CHICKEN HORSE GRAND PRIX

Tonight Kodra, Tam, Thalen and a very sick Bel talk about Pax South, Magic Grand Prix, Warframe, Destiny, Final Fantasy Explorers and a bunch of other stuff!

Tonight was a bit of a struggle to record. Going to leave this as a disclaimer that Belghast is pretty sick, and somehow managed to come home with the Pax Pox from Pax South. As a result there are several points during the show where his voice kinda falls apart. Additionally we are down a handful of people this week, with Grace being busy and Ashgar being worked to death on call this weekend. In any case Belghast, Kodra, Tamrielo and Thalen talk about a bunch of stuff, namely Pax South, the Vancouver Magic Grand Prix, and MMOFPS Progression contrasting Destiny and Warframe.

TOPICS DISCUSSED

  • Pax South 2016
  • Pax Pox
  • Ultimate Chicken Horse
  • Code Names
  • Pushfight
  • Grand Prix Vancouver

AGGROCHAT #93 – GAMES OF THE YEAR 2015 PART 2

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Dallian, Grace, Kodra, Thalen and Tam talk about their favorite games of 2015. This is the second part of a two part podcast.

Once again it is time for us to record our “Games of the Year” show, and this time around we did it slightly differently. Last year we tried to come up with some title that represented the podcast as a whole, but it ended up being pure madness to get us all to agree on something. This time we instead each picked three games to add to the list and now we are recording a show about all of those games. Of note… this is not necessarily show about games that were released in 2015, but instead a show about games that were important to us during the calendar year.

This is being divided into two parts to cover the gap as myself and several others will be attending Pax South. In this second part we talk about:

  • Tales of Zestiria
  • Witcher 3
  • Destiny – The Taken King
  • Diablo 3 Seasonal Play
  • Infinity Updated Ruleset
  • Fallout 4
  • Ori and the Blind Forest
  • Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward
  • Various Honorable Mentions

AggroChat #88 - Force Awakens and Formulae

Tonight Ash, Bel, Kodra and Tam talk spoiler free Star Wars Force Awakens, and a Formula for determining the most influential games

Tonight we have a smaller crew as both Grace and Thalen were unavailable, but we still manage to record a full show. For weeks ahead of the launch of Star Wars Episode VII – Force Awakens we talked about this show being our discussion of Star Wars. However… since there are already so many spoilers floating around the internet, we did not want to add to the volume. We still absolutely talk Star Wars but we do so in a way where we discuss our feelings and impressions… and not any details of the plot. So you can listen to the show and feel confident that you won’t get anything spoiled.

We also delve into this mission that Tam has been on lately, where he is trying to come up with a definitive list of the most influential game titles. He has created a rubric with which to judge games, and has been delving into every game that has essentially ever been reviewed. This is in fact a path to madness, but it is one I will cheerfully wave at Tam while he goes down. This ends up being an interesting discussion about what makes a game influential.

On the show we discussed…

  • Star Wars – Force Awakens
  • Star Wars Battlefront
  • Destiny – Sparrow Racing League
  • Most Influential Games
  • Tetris
  • Super Mario 64
  • Sega Saturn
  • Sony Playstation
  • Nintendo 64
  • Infinity Minatures
  • Minature Gaming
  • Teaching Gaming Skills
  • Not Ready for Games of the Year Show
