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.

AggroChat #108 - Because Morality

Ashgar, Belghast, Kodra, Tam and a super rambly show filled with lots of topics

This week we are down to a much smaller core for the AggroChat podcast with Thalen off exploring Japan and making us all jealous, and Grace needing to deal with some family stuff. The irony is there was a time when three members of the podcast was the norm but it is funny how much smaller the group feels when we are down a few now. For years I wondered if we would ever get used to recording with as big of a group as we often do... and I guess the answer to that is a resounding yes. As far as the show... this is yet another one of those "do we have anything to talk about?" episodes that ends up developing a life of its own.
