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 #110 - Conservation of Ninjas

Belghast, Kodra, Tam and Thalen discuss war in many forms... some crafty others hammery and still others multidimensional

This week we are down quite a few people, since it seems like everyone is travelling over the summer. This week we have Bel and Tam in their correct places, and Kodra and Thalen have been travelling as well but were able to sort out how to join the podcast. This is another one of those weeks where we thought we had nothing to talk about… then wound up podcasting for two hours withou stop. Tam is super excited about the new Mirror’s Edge, and it continues his trend of trying to do ninja things…. Without actually playing a ninja. We talk about how the ninja genre really never quite made a fully successful transition to three dimensional. From there we talk about how Tom Clancy games have gotten more and more paranoid over the years.

Kodra and Tam discuss a new to them miniature game they have been playing called Bushido that sounds suspiciously like the Legend of Five Rings setting. Which spawns a brief conversation about Magic the Gathering and spoiler season. Which leads its way into a discussion about Warhammer and how they went from completely fearing licensing games… to seemingly giving anyone with a heartbeat the right to make Warhammer 40k games. I spend some time returning to Rift and talk about how well they are messaging fights these days. Which leads to a discussion about Final Fantasy XIV in a not great light. I also talk about my experience watching the Warcraft movie and finally we wrap things up with a discussion about he start of the Final Fantasy V Four Job Fiesta.

Topics Discussed

  • Mirror’s Edge
  • Ninja Games
  • Tom Clancy
  • Bushido
  • Magic the Gathering
  • Warhammer Licensing

AGGROCHAT #105 – THE GONE HOME SHOW

Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen talk about the April 2016 Game of the Month Game – Gone Home

This week we discuss the April 2016 AggroChat Game of the Month title… Gone Home. This was a pick by Grace, and honestly one that probably a handful of us would have never played. However it also holds the special designation as being one of the few Game Club titles that we all universally liked. We talk about the design of the game, and the narrative, as well as the context. This game is the quintessential 90s game. It is set in 1994, the year Belghast graduated from High School and with Grace and Thalen not being far behind that also. For us it was this trip down memory lane that added so much to the experience. In any case, as is always the case if you have not played Gone Home and intend to… spoilers are plentiful.

Episodes 99 and 100 both had their issues and I believe those are finally behind us.

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.

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.

  • Pax South 2016
  • Pax Pox
  • Ultimate Chicken Horse
  • Code Names

AggroChat #77 - Undertale Feels

This week we talk about some strange stuff, but I guess in the grand scheme that is par for the course. This was the birthday week of our very own Tam, and we wish him a happy belated birthday. Grace on the other hand had a week full of travel, and while she showed up to give it the good college try…. sounded like just about the tiredest human being I have ever heard. As such we shuffled her off to bed and said we would be ready to talk about Wildstar next week. As far as what we actually did talk about this week…

AggroChat #70 - Calibrating "Main Gun"

This week we are joined by Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Tam and Thalen, with Kodra having to deal with some family stuff. I was not certain how much we would have to talk about, but like always we managed to fill a show full of all sorts of games that we had been playing. Thalen starts it off talking about his further adventures into the Magic Duels free to play game. Similarly with the launch of Fallout Shelter for android he has started playing that as well. Finally he talks about the recent Fantastic Four event in Marvel Heroes and how The Thing is the tankiest of tanks. Tam spent the day at an Infinity Tournament and talks about just how awesome the Seattle minature gaming scene has been.

Grace talks about her recent swap to spending most of her time in Wildstar and the excitement surrounding the impending free to play drop that is now on the public test server. Additionally she talks about her recent foray into the PVP system, and how generally cool the community seems to be surrounding it. While board games are normally the territory of Kodra, Grace mentions the Exploding Kittens card game and how much fun she has had with it since receiving it. Ashgar has followed in Tam’s footsteps and talks about his experiences playing Sword Art Online Hollow Fragment. Ash has also started on a brand new playthrough of Mass Effect with the intent of carrying one save game from one all the way through three. This of course spawns a conversation where we talk about our experiences with the Mass Effect series.

Finally I talk about my recent return to Rift, and my obsessions with Hellgate London. Additionally we talk about next weeks show, where we plan on talking about the storyline of the Final Fantasy XIV Heavensward expansion. We have purposefully kept discussion of plot points to a minimum, but we feel it is generally safe enough to start talking about where we think the game is going. We are announcing this ahead of time for the purpose of letting our listeners and readers join in the fun. Do you have any interesting theories or are there parts of the story that you didn’t quite grasp? We are taking in questions via email for this coming show, and we will go over them on the air. I should be a lot of fun and it is our first real attempt to do something like this.

AggroChat #69 - Ahk Mourn and Key Limes

Last night we had the whole gang back of Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen. Kodra fresh back from Gencon had many tales to tell of his proclivity for LARPing and his further descent into the Magic the Gathering Origins base set. He has now purchased a box, but instead of opening in one sitting he has decided to do something extremely cool with it, turning it into a series of mini draft for him and some of his Seatle area friends. Grace continues to spend time in Wildstar and in an effort to try and catch up Belghast has spent some time leveling there. There was a discussion of the various points that people stall out in that game when they outlevel their quest content. Grace also managed to play through Hatoful Boyfriend enough times to see every possible ending... and is amped about our impending AggroChat show.

For Tam and Ashgar this was a very Sword Art Online week, with Ashgar watching through the entirity of season one so that he can join Tam in playing Hollow Fragment on the PS4. Thalen rekindled his own Magic the Gathering roots as he began playing the brand new free to play Magic Duels. Additionally there is a new event happening in Marvel Heroes where bonus experience is given to playing the Fantastic Four which spawns a conversation about the hero teams we liked growing up. Bel talks about his Bel's Big Adventure Minecraft series and the quirks of playing Minecraft with a singlular purpose, and his adventures on the Everquest II Time Locked server. Finally we talk the elephant in the room... the World of Warcraft Legion expansion announcement from GamesCom. It was a lengthy discussion dense show, and hopefully you will all enjoy it.

AggroChat #66 - Bear Selfie Madlibs


Tonight was a bit of an odd evening, because I absolutely went into this podcast not really thinking we had all that much to talk about. The truth is anytime I think this... it ends up being a record breaking show. We recorded for roughly two hours and fifteen minutes, and after editing it still weighs in at a whopping hour and fourty five minutes. We apparently had lots to talk about. It would not be an AggroChat without discussing Final Fantasy XIV, and tonight we focused heavily upon our recent experiences in Bismarck Ex and with the Alexander raid. We talk about the influx of new players into the community, and how sometimes this has had a negative effect on the cohesion of the community as a whole. Since the Four Job Fiesta is still going on, some of our folks talk about their experiences there especially as Kodra, Ash and Tam have all completed the game at least once, and Ash and Kodra are now on their second play through.

We get the title of the show from a discussion Grace brought to the table about the mobile game Alphabear that has recently invaded twitter. It is a hyper cute game by the makers of Triple Town where you help adorable bears spell words.... and then you get rewarded by crazy selfies that they take that end up being a random assortment of the words you spelled. From there we dug deep into the new Magic the Gathering core set outlining the Origins of all of the Planeswalkers. We also get sidetracked on a length discussion about minature gaming that talks about Warhammer, Infinity and a little WarMachine and the hobby in general. Finally I talk about my recent experiences in SkyForge and some of the problems I had with the game. It was an evening packed with conversation, that we ultimately had to reign in and cut short a few times for the sake of time. Hopefully you all enjoy it as much as we did having the discussion.
