AggroChat #107 - Objectifying Corgis

Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Inky discuss a truly dizzying number of topics the largest bit focused on Stellaris

This week we welcome back our sometimes host Inky... and I apparently get her confused with one of the other Pacman ghosts. The title of this episode doesn't really relate to the discussion other than it was a hilarious line that slipped out there somewhere along the way. This week folks played a lot of Stellaris in both single and multiplayer configurations. We delve into this game and its relation to other 4X games, and why this one clicks for some better than the normal fare. We take a whirlwind trip through Fallout 4 and The Sims, before discussing Twitch Streaming. I talk for a bit about my revised experiences with the new Doom reboot, and why I consider it far better than my early multiplayer experiences. Grace talks about her return to Final Fantasy XIV and how much she loves healing butts. This kicks off a conversation about MMOs and Raiding and winds up with Inky and I pining for Hellgate London again. Finally we wrap things up with a discussion about Uncharted and the whole "cinematic game" trend of the 2000s.

AggroChat #103 - Reboot Done Right

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen celebrate two years of AggroChat and discuss more games!

This past week marked the second anniversary of the AggroChat podcast. For two years we have been coming together every week to discuss whatever we happened to be playing. So this is a great time to thank you our listeners for putting up with our rambling. We still very much feel like we don’t know what we are doing, but keep doing it anyway. This week we discuss the Overwatch Beta weekend that finally some of us managed to get into. Belghast contrasts his experiences in Overwatch with the Doom multiplayer weekend as well. Grace talks about the Wildstar Faction changes and how they are essentially the worst of both worlds. Ash and Bel talk about the Ratchet and Clank reboot, and how this is the way that all reboots should work. Kodra has continued to dig further into the world of Dark Souls and has some thoughts about it as it relates to learning Raid Boss encounters. We all get sidetracked on a discussion about good movie ports, and how we probably need to have an entire show about good Star Wars video games versus bad ones. Finally we wrap things up more or less with a lengthy discussion about how important it is to like the way your character looks in a game.

Show Topics

  • Overwatch Beta Weekend
  • Doom Multiplayer
  • Wildstar Cross Faction Letdown
  • Ratchet and Clank Reboot
  • Good Movie Ports
  • Dark Souls
  • Importance of Looking Good in Games

AGGROCHAT #97 – FALLACY OF EARLY ACCESS

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, and Thalen talk about a bunch of things including the pitfalls of Early Access

Tonight we ended up recording a pretty strange episode as far as our normal AggroChat episodes go. We talked about the weirdness that happens when you play a game that requires a very special controller, and that manufacturers future is up in the air. We delve into the feeling of rehashing old content, and when exactly that stops being fun. That leads into a lengthy discussion about the pitfalls of Early Access... and gives us the title of this episode. Belghast talks a bit about his experiences with the Master of Orion reboot early access, and Kodra talks about the newish trend of persistent board games as he and some friends start Kingdom Death.

Topics

  • Master of Orion Reboot
  • Warframe Patch
  • Custom Controllers in Games
  • Rehashing Old Content
  • Pitfalls of Early Access
  • Persistent Board Games
  • Kingdom Death
