AggroChat #37 - Games of the Year: Part Two

This year we are starting what I hope will be a tradition for our podcast, a "Games of the Year" show. Notice that it is plural, because there is no one "Game of the Year" when an ensemble cast is involved with fairly diverse tastes. As such we sat down and made lists of the five games that were the most significant to us this year, and then talked about them. The end result was this monster three hour podcast that I edited between the evening we recorded it and the morning I am posting it. As such we ended up with two shows worth of content, and today you are going to get the second part of this experiment.

For this "Games of the Year" show we have Ashgar, Belghast, Kodra, Rae and Tam. I hope all of you had a great Holiday, and hope you all have an excellent New Year in the coming days. I want to thank our listeners so much for giving us your time this year, and we hope to give you an excellent Season 2.

AggroChat #35 - Fun with Raid Simulation

Last night we recorded our 35th episode of AggroChat, featuring myself, Ashgar, Tamrielo and Kodra. Last night the show became mostly about raids and raiding. I am not sure if this started with our progress in Final Fantasy XIV working on Turn 5 of Binding Coil of Bahamut or if this began with Tam talking about the new “It’s A Wipe” game from steam. It’s A Wipe is essentially a raid simulator in that you are the raid leader of a group of players trying to make it through progression content. Having lived this world… the more we talked about this game the more it seems like the creators of the game were raid leaders themselves at some point. When Tam got into the section talking about the descriptions of the various players and their traits… I could seriously associated names to each of the people he was talking about because we had those exact personalities in our own raids.

From there we wound our way through lots of digital card gaming with Kodra, as he talked about the new Hex and Hearthstone expansions. Tam talked about the sweeping changes to the Infinity miniatures game and the ramifications it is having on the various factions. Finally we delve into my relapse into raiding. This past week I raided Monday in Final Fantasy XIV, Tuesday doing Highmaul progression content in World of Warcraft, Wednesday a casual foray into LFR with the guild, and Thursday Highmaul progression again. All total that was four nights of raiding… and I was having an absolute blast. As Kodra pointed out, I am raiding as much as I ever did in Late Night Raiders… just doing it in a more piecemeal and casual fashion. I am really enjoying splitting time between Final Fantasty XIV and WoW and seeing how each game does raiding.

AggroChat #34 - Good News of Muradin

Tonight we swap things up a bit, Kodra drives the bus and does an excellent job doing it. During the day Belghast had some pretty rough news, and just didn't feel up to being his jolly self, as such Kodra stepped in to offer support and we made it through the show in one piece. Tonight we are joined by Belghast, Kodra, Rae, Ashgar and Raven and talk random gamey bits. There is much discussion of Final Fantasy XIV as usual with Raven talking about completing her second Novus weapon and beginning a second Nexus grind, and several of us talking about our victory over Ultros and solid attempts on Tier 5 in Binding Coil of Bahamut. I talk World of Warcraft raiding, and looking forward to beginning the Highmaul Raid after missing Thursday and my raids first two boss kills.

Together Bel, Rae, Kodra and Ashgar talk Heroes of the Storm, since this week they finally saw fit to give Rae an invite. That game is exceptionally fun and better suited for a more casual gamer than League of Legends is. Over the course of the week we have played quite a bit of it and talk about our personal hero preferences and playstyles. Kodra runs a much tighter ship than I seem to, because we actually clocked in at just barely over an hour once editing was finished. Extra special thanks to Kodra for steering the ship while I couldn't quite muster the oomph to do so.
