AggroChat #136 - Star Wars Gone Rogue

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra and Tam talk a bunch of games... and then Star Wars Rogue One

This week we are recording a bit of a special show in that we have a bunch of gaming stuff to talk about… but also Rogue One happened. So as a result we are dividing the show in essentially two parts. The first part we talk about a bunch of gaming topics, and in the second part we give an intermission of sorts to let folks know we are about to delve into a spoilery discussion of the new Star Wars film… Rogue One. For those really cautious our spoilery discussion begins around 56 minutes into the podcast.

On the non-spoiler side of the table we talk about The Dawning event in Destiny and how awesome the Sparrow Racing League is. This causes a brief offshoot conversation about how we actually grip our controllers. A few of the crew have been playing Hex the digital CCG that many of us backed eons ago in kickstarter so there is some discussion about its current state. Bel talks about the Warcraft community Icecrown Challenge charity event. Bel also talks about his experiences playing Let it Die the Darksoulsian Rogue-Like set in a Neo Tokyo setting. Finally wrapping up the pre Star Wars discussion is some talk about the 2nd edition of the 7th Sea Pen and Paper game.

Topics Discussed - Destiny - The Dawning - Sparrow Racing League - Controller Grips - Hex - Hearthstone - World of Warcraft - Icecrown Challenge - bit.ly/icecrown2016 - Let It Die - 7th Sea - Star Wars: Rogue One

AggroChat #133 - Leadership and Games

This week Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Tam and Thalen talk a bunch of stuff including how gaming applies to business leadership roles.

This week we have a bit of a strange cold open as we talk about our recent system building experiences and the fact that next week we are actually going to need to record a proper sound check. From there we delve into World of Warcraft and talk about our experiences with the new Karazhan Raid and Trials of Valor, as well as experiences with progression and wrapping up the Emerald Nightmare. Belghast talks about his experiences in Starfall Prophecy the new Rift raid, and Tam discusses his experiences in Dishonored 2. Finally we get around to the discussion that named this show as Tam talks about a recent class project.

Things Discussed - Impromptu Building New Systems - WoW - New Karazhan Raid - Trial of Valor Raid - Rift - Starfall Prophecy Expansion - Dishonored 2 -Tam’s Class Project

AggroChat #131 - Blizzcon Boop

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen talk Blizzcon news, Guild Wars 2, and Dungeons and Dragons stuff

Tonight we wind up delaying the Cthulhu show another week because of continued technical difficulties with that game, which is probably a good idea since we had a lot of other stuff to talk about anyways. We start off with Bel getting griefed by the rest of the cast as he tries to do the intro, and it just sorta flows from there. This week was Blizzcon and we talk about some of the exciting stuff to come out of it. Then we get into a length discussion about our changing attitudes towards Guild Wars 2, and finally wrap things up with some discussion about the new Volo’s Guide to Monsters release.

Topics Discussed: Blizzcon - Overwatch - Sombra - ARG - Diablo 3 - Anniversary Event - Necromancer - World of Warcraft - Micro Holidays - Argus - Nighthold raid - Tomb of Sargeras raid - Starcraft 2 - Deepmind integration - This is how we make Skynet - Hearthstone - Mean Streets of Gadgetzan - Heroes of the Storm - Varian - Ragnaros - Guild Wars 2 - Fractals - World Events - Mad King’s Labyrinth - Dungeons and Dragons - Volos Guide

AggroChat #130 - Ra Ra Rasputin

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace and Thalen talk about stuff...
This week we have a significantly smaller crew because Tam and Kodra actually enjoy going out into the real world sometimes. They got invited to a Halloween party, and we are left holding down the fort. The show is dedicated to the Ra Ra Rasputin video that Tam infected us with this week, and our inability to get it out of our heads. As far as actual commentary we talk Stellaris, the disappointment of Festival of the Lost, the insanity that is the retribution artifact hidden appearance, and some discussion of the Nintendo Switch among other topics that pop into the stream of consciousness that is our podcast.

Topics Discussed - Ra Ra Rasputin - https://youtu.be/WhPvJOnHotE - Stellaris Leviathans - Expansion - Destiny - Festival of the Lost - World of Final Fantasy - World of Warcraft Hidden - Artifacts - Emerald Nighmare - Karazhan Attunements - Nintendo Switch

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 #128 - Warrior of Moderation

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Kodra and Tam discuss Geek Girl Con, Destiny, The Kunark Effect, and Final Fantasy XIV patch 3.4

Tonight we were down Thalen and Grace, but continued on… all the while typhoon rains battered Tam and Kodra. The core goal of this week’s show was to discuss the Final Fantasy XIV 3.4 Soul Surrender patch, and the changes to the game and world that were hinted by it. Additionally we talk about some of the changes coming to FFXIV in 4.0 that were announced at Fanfest. However in addition to this big topic we landed on some discussion about the awesome Geek Girl Con that took Kodra away from us last weekend, as well as Tam venturing into Destiny this week and talking about some of his experience. Squeezed somewhere in the middle is a discussion about why Legion feels different and what Bel calls the “Kunark Effect”. Finally one last note… Bel is on a brand new computer and with it a different editing environment. If you hear anything bizarre please let us know.

Topics Discussed - Geek Girl Con 2016 - Destiny Taken King and Rise of Iron - Legion and the Kunark Effect - Final Fantasy XIV patch 3.4 and Fanfest

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 #122 - Glimmers of Hope

Tonight Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra and Thalen talk about a bunch of stuff… with a significant emphasis on the launch of World of Warcraf Legion

Tonight we are down a Tam thanks to Pax West Shenanigans, and in theory at least we will be talking soon about those experiences. However for the time being… we talk a bunch of stuff but mostly World of Warcraft Legion. Right now Ashgar, Belghast and Grace are playing… and talk about their experiences with the launch, and the revisions to the game. The long story short is that we all seem to be enjoying ourselves. The main story is still frustrating, but the sub stories are amazing. We also talk a little bit about the game of the month Tales of Maj’Eyal, largely related to a few tips for getting started and things that players should really avoid getting bogged down in. Finally Kodra talks about his experiences with Deus Ex and Necropolis in recent play sessions for both.

Things Discussed - World of Warcraft - Legion - Class Halls - Spec Fantasy - Leveling Content - Tales of Maj’Eyal - Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - Necropolis

AggroChat #121 - Fizzylock’s Telekinetics

Ashgar, Belghast, Kodra, Tam and Thalen have an unplanned show about stuff and things.

This evening we were originally planning on recording the AggroChat Game Club show for The Witness. However as we got close to recording events happened, and we will be rescheduling that later this month. That said the September game is announced in this show, and from that point onwards we charted a destination through madness. This is one of those super meandering shows, that covered a bunch of only semi-related topics.

Things We Talked about: Tales of Maj'eyal - September Game of Month - Nethack - Vampire the Masquerade/Requiem - Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Final Fantasy XIV - The Rising Year 3 - Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - Deus Ex Go - Sweetness and Lightning Anime - New Game Anime - Game Development Industry - Orange Anime - Breaking Events - WoW Legion Launch - The Sleeper - Raiding in Everquest - Fires of Heaven - Green Dragons of WoW

AggroChat #119 - Still Not Prepared

Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam, and Thalen talk World of Warcraft Legion event, Starbound, No Man's Sky and Final Fantasy XV

This week we inadvertently have a show about things that are not quite prepared in one way or another. First up we talk about our frustrations with the Broke Shore cinematics for both the Alliance and Horde in World of Warcraft. We also talk about the positive things that this event is bringing, but mostly frustrations about the turn in the story. We talk about the fraught PC launch of No Man’s Sky and how Belghast is the only member of our crew able to actually get it running on his machine. However since he could we talk at length about his experiences. All of the NMS talk got Kodra amped to play some Starbound on our private server. We talk a little bit of Diablo Season 7 and how we were not quite prepared for it with everything else going on… so we ended up rolling an army of demon hunters for speed clearing. Finally we talk about how Final Fantasy XV seems to be delayed once more, as details have been leaked on how to update the date on the big retail standees. So much not preparedness to go around, caused us to record an extremely long show.

Things we discussed: Frustrations with Broken Shore Cinematics - WoW Legion Event - Legion expansion in general - Starbound Launch - No Man’s Sky PC Frustrations - First Several Hours with the Game - Diablo Season 7 Launch - Final Fantasy XV and VIII

AggroChat #117 - Death to Garrisons

Belghast, Grace, Neph, Tam and Thalen lack topic ideas… but then record a lengthy show on WoW, FFXIV, Pokemon and other stuff.

This week we are down both Ashgar and Kodra, and in part as a result… and part because we just adore her we talked our friend Neph into joining us. Before we start recording a podcast we generally try and scribble down a rough list of topics to use as an outline of where to leave the conversation next. After fifteen minutes of dead air… we finally start coming up with a few things and this weeks show is a result. We talk about the concept of “Peak Pokemon” and the glee that the media seems to have at heralding the downfall of the game. With Grace on my side we revisit the discussion about the Legion class changes, and our happiness to completely bury the concept of the Garrison and get out into the world and see it again. We do a deeper dive into the deepest dungeon in Final Fantasy XIV and Tam and Neph’s experiences leveling alts this week there. We talk a little bit about Dragon Age Inquisition, and my discovery of how Damage over Time classes work. So for a show where we didn’t think we had much to say… we certainly said a whole lot of it.

  • Peak Pokemon
  • World of Warcraft
  • Class Changes
  • Death to Garrisons
  • Disappointment in Game
  • Final Fantasy XIV Deep Dungeon
  • Yokai Watch
  • Dragon Age Inquisition
  • DoT Classes

AggroChat #116 - Legion and the Deep Dungeon

This Week Ashgar, Belghast and Tam are abandoned by their compatriots and talk FFXIV, WoW, Starbound and Overwatch

This week we had a really strange sequence of events that lead to quite literally half of our crew being out for one reason or another. Of all of them I think we happen to be the most jealous of Grace who managed to score tickets to the Final Fantasy Symphony tour thing that is roaming the country. This was the week of big patches with both the 3.35 patch in Final Fantasy XIV bringing us the Palace of the Dead, and World of Warcraft getting 7.0.3 containing all of the Legion class changes and new Transmog system. Additionally we saw the actual launch of Starbound and with it something unusual in the early access community… significant changes being patched into the final version. So this week we have a whole slew of topics related to all of those points.

Final Fantasy XIV 3.35 - Palace of the Dead - World of Warcraft 7.0.3 - Legion Class Changes - Survival Hunter - Outlaw Rogue - Starbound Launch - Pre-Launch is Launch - Overwatch Healing Sniper

AggroChat #115 - Murder Hobo: The Video Game

This week Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam, Thalen discuss a bunch of stuff, some of it not Pokemon Go

This marks the second week of the majority of our cast being completely enthralled by the apparent phenomenon that is Pokemon Go. So as you would expect this weeks episode is a hefty bit of our hosts recounting their recent experiences. Pokemon Go is a story engine, and we have many stories to tell as a result. Additionally we talk a bit about Augmented Reality gaming in general, and whether or not Pokemon Go is the "Everquest" or the "World of Warcraft" of this genre. This week also saw us "getting the band back together" as it were and raiding for the first time in months in Final Fantasy XIV. We discuss our feeling about raiding again and the hopes of what we might accomplish in the coming months.

Grace and Bel made their way into the Legion Beta finally for World of Warcraft so we discuss a bit in the way of the set up for that expansion. Bel talks at length about his experiences playing a Demon Hunter and why he thinks this might be a class Tam would actually like. Tam deftly deflects and turns the discussion back around to the story of Final Fantasy XIV and our feelings about what seems to be the wrapping of this expansion. In other news we discuss two similar gaming experiences in Necropolis and the brand new chapter of the Monster Hunter saga. Finally we get into a length discussion about the ramifications of Pokemon Go and what it might mean for Nintendo and accepting that the mobile platform is actually viable.

Topics: Pokemon Go, Augmented Reality Gaming, Everquest or World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV Raiding, Legion Beta, Demon Hunter, Final Fantasy Story, Necropolis, Monster Hunter, Nintendo Mobile Gaming, Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow.
