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.

AggroChat #47 - Scrabble is for Olds

Last night is another case of us sitting down, saying we had nothing to talk about... and then ending up talking for an hour and a half about everything imaginable. We talked about Ashgar and the insanity he is currently going through working on his Relic Novus in Final Fantasy XIV. We talked my recent journey back into Bravely Default and how that game requires a certain measure of degenerate play to defeat encounters after a certain point. We talk about Tam's brush with near death as he decides that no one should ever be bit by a Black Widow spider because it hurts like hell. I talk about my experiences in Blackrock Foundry and the World of Warcraft selfie toy filling up my twitter feed. I talk about hitting level 80 on my first character in Guild Wars 2... and how empty it feels since the last 15 levels or so were essentially given to me for logging in daily.

Our longest discussion however that spawned the quote that I am using for the title of this show was about board games and miniature gaming. We talk about "long" board games, those taking several hours to play out... and the frustration of having to devote that much time to a game you are essentially "behind the curve" in the entire time. We talk about games that require less time to get into and play, and that can be played for a number of times in a single evening. This also spawns a discussion into miniature gaming talking about the problems with Warmachine and Warhammer 40k contrasted with some of the strengths of Infinity. As always it is a long rambling discussion between a bunch of friends, and since you apparently like that as AggroChat listeners... then this should be a banner episode.
