AggroChat #132 - The Cthulhu Game Show

Tonight Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen discuss the October game club title… Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth

Tonight is the tale of a game that we put off recording the show for weeks in the hopes of clearing up some technical difficulties. So while we do talk about Cthulhu, the show morphs into a general discussion about the preservation of video games, and what happens to these older titles that don’t quite function as intended on modern platforms. Additionally we talk a bit about emulation and how it might be the saving grace for especially the early cd based systems. We talk about this weird time in early FPS games where folks were willing to take chances and make something not entirely in the Call of Duty model. Given that this is the second of those games we have made a game club title… it seems like there was something interesting happening that it would be awesome to see again.

Topics Discussed - Technical Difficulties - Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth - Early FPS Titles - Early CD Rom games - Games Preservation - Emulation - December Game - Diablo II

AggroChat #88 - Force Awakens and Formulae

Tonight Ash, Bel, Kodra and Tam talk spoiler free Star Wars Force Awakens, and a Formula for determining the most influential games

Tonight we have a smaller crew as both Grace and Thalen were unavailable, but we still manage to record a full show. For weeks ahead of the launch of Star Wars Episode VII – Force Awakens we talked about this show being our discussion of Star Wars. However… since there are already so many spoilers floating around the internet, we did not want to add to the volume. We still absolutely talk Star Wars but we do so in a way where we discuss our feelings and impressions… and not any details of the plot. So you can listen to the show and feel confident that you won’t get anything spoiled.

We also delve into this mission that Tam has been on lately, where he is trying to come up with a definitive list of the most influential game titles. He has created a rubric with which to judge games, and has been delving into every game that has essentially ever been reviewed. This is in fact a path to madness, but it is one I will cheerfully wave at Tam while he goes down. This ends up being an interesting discussion about what makes a game influential.

On the show we discussed…

  • Star Wars – Force Awakens
  • Star Wars Battlefront
  • Destiny – Sparrow Racing League
  • Most Influential Games
  • Tetris
  • Super Mario 64
  • Sega Saturn
  • Sony Playstation
