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 #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 #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 #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.

  • Overwatch
  • Destiny
  • The Division
  • Looter Shooters
  • Diablo 3 Season 6

AggroChat #99 - Faction Walls and Robots

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen suffer some technical difficulties and sound like robots.

This week we suffered some setbacks. Firstly we were late getting started by about an hour, and then once we started... we kinda mostly sounded like robots. We muscled through for this week but hopefully by next week we will have acquired a new infrastructure for recording the show that sounds better. The worst part is however.... the conversation this week was really interesting. We dug int the whole Faction Wall question currently happening in Wildstar and how we generally as a group feel like games are better without them. We also delved into everyones continued addiction to Stardew Valley. Ended up being a fairly short show as far as AggroChat episodes goes, but a pretty content dense one.

AggroChat #58 - Eight is Enough?

This week we explore the age old question of podcasting.. just how many hosts can you have before a show descends into madness? As the title suggests we ended up with eight hosts on this weeks AggroChat and I think for the most part we exited on the other side with our sanity still in place... or what little we actually had of it to start. This week Ashgar and Kodra are both travelling, and as such I made plans to cover for them if they were unable to make it for the show. However because they are the consumate professionals that they are... they figured out a way to podcast remotely. This left me with the choice of either backing out on the folks I had arranged or just push forward into madness. Like usual I chose the path of madness.

This week we have quite possibly our longest show to date as we aske the question if Eight is Enough? This week we talk about Kodra's trip to Canada, and his descent into Pathfinder Online. This spurs a discussion about the recent crop of MMO nostalgia titles and how they all somehow miss the boat on what made those early MMOs so interesting. Since all of us literally are playing Final Fantasy XIV we spend a good deal talking about our two groups working on turn nine of the Second Coil of Bahamut, as well as contrasting WoW and Final Fantasy raiding experiences. Grace talks about her experience leveling a ninja and how this game causes us to play things we didn't think we would ever like playing. I talk about my complete and total embrace of the black hole that is the crafting system and how I have managed to push all classes to fifteen this week.

On top of this we talk Sword Art Online in both the Anime and Game forms. We talk a bit about how each of us is trying to wrap up our time in Shadowrun in preparation for next weeks show. We talk Mad Max Fury Road and to a lesser extent Orphan Black. Ashgar talks about his continued experiences with Radiant Historia, and Thalen ventures into Broken Age. Dallian and I talk about our experiences this week playing Witcher 3, and how the Hearthstone mobile app doesn't work nearly as well as we would have hoped it would. Finally we wrap things up with some discussion about Moonrise and the impending steam early access. It was without a doubt one of the biggest shows we have recorded but also extremely enjoyable to participate in. It seems we somehow were able to juggle eight people on a show without complete chaos.
