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 #132 - The Cthulhu Game Show

Tonight Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen discuss the October game club title… Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth

Tonight is the tale of a game that we put off recording the show for weeks in the hopes of clearing up some technical difficulties. So while we do talk about Cthulhu, the show morphs into a general discussion about the preservation of video games, and what happens to these older titles that don’t quite function as intended on modern platforms. Additionally we talk a bit about emulation and how it might be the saving grace for especially the early cd based systems. We talk about this weird time in early FPS games where folks were willing to take chances and make something not entirely in the Call of Duty model. Given that this is the second of those games we have made a game club title… it seems like there was something interesting happening that it would be awesome to see again.

Topics Discussed - Technical Difficulties - Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth - Early FPS Titles - Early CD Rom games - Games Preservation - Emulation - December Game - Diablo II

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
