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 #113 - Who Needs Rails?

Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen talk Harry Potter, Steam Sales and LARPing sorta

To say we went off the rails while recording this show is to put it mildly. Not sure what was going on.. If it was just the general slap happy nature of being a long holiday weekend for all of us… or if something was in the water. It starts with me almost botching the introduction… and winds through a long series of tangents that I have no way of really properly mapping without thoroughly relistening to the show and documenting all the topic changes. We talk Harry Potter, and the new American Houses. However we also talk a whole bunch about where we ourselves fit into the Pottermore sorting hat quiz. I am apparently the only one that was surprised I sorted Gryffindor.

From there we get into a lengthy discussion about the Steam Discovery Queue and how sometimes it just gives the equivalent of a shrug emote. We also talk about how Steam is starting to feel like the various mobile app stores, with a slew of clone games for pretty much any genre. We delve into a topic about how MMOs actually make you less of a well rounded player. Namely that when you are playing an MMO… it becomes extremely hard to pull yourself away for those single player experiences. This devolves into brief discussions of Riders of Icarus, ArcheAge and Final Fantasy XIV. We talk about how cool it would be to get the band back together of sorts in that game. Finally we go into a long discussion about LARPing… or more so the kind of LARPing Kodra is used to that doesn’t quite sync with a bunch of the experiences we had with it.

Loose List of Topics

  • Harry Potter Stuff
  • Ilvermorny
  • The Sorting Hat
