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

AggroChat #62 - Flight and Chocobos

I originally thought that when we set down to record this episode of AggroChat we would end up putting aside all pretense and simply talk about the Heavensward expansion for Final Fantasy XIV. However what happened in reality is we ended up recording an extremely length show where we basically did that… AND a normal show as well. While many or our weeks revolved around the launch of this new expansion… we had to do something to bide our time until the Friday launch. Grace has apparently been completely hooked on Marvel Super Heroes so we talked about that for awhile. The other game she has been playing is Wildstar, so we spent a good deal of time chatting about how that game has been progressing.

In Final Fantasy XIV before the outage we managed to take down Shiva and Odin once again so we talked a bit about that. Then myself, Tam and Kodra have been playing an awful lot of ArcheAge so we talk again about that and our progress so far. Then finally when we start talking about Heavensward we get sidetracked on a lengthy debate about the merits of flight in MMOs and whether or not it is simply GM cheats. Each of us brought our own perspectives to the conversation and quite honestly this could have been a show topic in itself. Finally we talk about our experience so far with the Heavensward expansion to close out the show. It is an extremely packed show, and clocks in just shy of two hours.
