AggroChat #131 - Blizzcon Boop

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen talk Blizzcon news, Guild Wars 2, and Dungeons and Dragons stuff

Tonight we wind up delaying the Cthulhu show another week because of continued technical difficulties with that game, which is probably a good idea since we had a lot of other stuff to talk about anyways. We start off with Bel getting griefed by the rest of the cast as he tries to do the intro, and it just sorta flows from there. This week was Blizzcon and we talk about some of the exciting stuff to come out of it. Then we get into a length discussion about our changing attitudes towards Guild Wars 2, and finally wrap things up with some discussion about the new Volo’s Guide to Monsters release.

Topics Discussed: Blizzcon - Overwatch - Sombra - ARG - Diablo 3 - Anniversary Event - Necromancer - World of Warcraft - Micro Holidays - Argus - Nighthold raid - Tomb of Sargeras raid - Starcraft 2 - Deepmind integration - This is how we make Skynet - Hearthstone - Mean Streets of Gadgetzan - Heroes of the Storm - Varian - Ragnaros - Guild Wars 2 - Fractals - World Events - Mad King’s Labyrinth - Dungeons and Dragons - Volos Guide

AggroChat #129 - Deckbuilding MMO Design

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Tam and Thalen Discuss Diablo rumors, Overwatch Co-Op, Master Catching Games, and Guild Wars Deckbuilding in MMOs

Tonight we have another in a long line of shows where we go into it not really having a clue what we are going to talk about… then wind up discussing topics for a couple hours. This week we start off talking about Diablo… the largely forgotten Blizzard game and the beginning of Season 8. We then veer off into tinfoil hat territory as we talk about some of the popular rumors surrounding Diablo 4. We talk about how much we are enjoying the new Co-Op PVE mode in Overwatch, and how we wish it was a permanent addition. We also shift course into a discussion about how games seem to have an obligatory e-sports friendly design these days. We also discuss our recent progress in the World of Warcraft Emerald Nightmare raid, and now much we are looking forward to Karazhan landing this coming week. Finally we get into a lengthy discussion about the deckbuilding style of MMO design, namely with Guild Wars, Guild Wars 2, Secret World and to some extent Rift.

Topics Discussed - Diablo 3 Season 8 - Diablo 4 Tinfoil Hat Theories - David Brevik - Bill Roper - Co-Op Overwatch - Designing For E-Sports - Co-Op Gameplay - Pokemon Sun and Moon Demo - World of Final Fantasy Demo - WoW Emerald Nightmare Raid - Guild Wars 1 Ability System - Deck Building MMOs
