This evening we are down a Grace and went through a whole carnival of tech issues before the show, and as such were delated getting started. Bel starts the show off talking about finding a batch of WoW Screenshots he thought were lost, and it turns out that no… he likely deleted them on purpose due to the cavalcade of raid drama documented. The Fin…
 
Tonight we start the show off with Kodra talking bout Celeste and making it past the Farewell segment of the game. We talk about the conclusion of the Epic versus Apple lawsuit and how it is pretty bad for both companies, but especially bad for Epic. From there we talk about our impressions of the games shown off at what would have been the Sony E3…
 
Tonight we are surprised to have with us Kodra and his five-day-old daughter. Gotta get that podcasting started early. This evening Ash and Tam talk about attending Pax Prime during a Pandemic and the oddities that come with that. After that, we dive into a topic that we somewhat previewed at the end of last week’s show, but Magic the Gathering goe…
 
Tonight we talk about several things that Blizzard claimed were impossible, making their way into the 9.1.5 patch. Is this fan service or an act of desperation in trying to stem the hemorrhaging of players? From there we talk about how other games have done a better job of making sure that players’ feedback was heard and understood. Thalen talks ab…
 
Tonight we start off with the travails of Belghast attempting to heal things on Scholar. Kodra chimes in with his own experiences in the same class. Bel talks a bit about getting to the bottom of the weird obsession that seems to be taking place with hitting +99/+99 aetherpool as fast as humanly possible in Palace of the Dead. This leads to some di…
 
Tonight we start the show with some discussion of copyright trolls trying to prove how broken our system is by copyrighting a Magic the Gathering deck. From there Grace talks about her experiences with the Kickstarter Kitfox game Boyfriend Dungeon. We revisit The Ascent as Bel, Grace, and Thalen have now played the game and relate their experiences…
 
Tonight we start off with Bel confessing his love for a class that he never expected to like in FFXIV, the Dancer. From there we talk a bit about FFXIV in general and how weird the Bozjan Front is. Tam shares with us a game that is actually way more in the wheelhouse of Bel, Grace, and Thalen and is effectively Cyberpunk-themed Diablo. The Ascent i…
 
Tonight we had the whole gang back and start the show talking about how Bel was apparently replaced by a totally different person as he both healed a few dungeons and ran raid content in FFXIV as a mage class. From there we talk a bit about Blaugust which is starting the day this show releases. The rest of the show is sort of a rapid-fire rememberi…
 
Hey Friends, it is time for a bit of real talk before I get into the podcast show notes. We had a discussion last night about whether or not we should talk about the horrific Blizzard situation on the show. I’ve made my comments pretty clear on my blog, but it also sorta felt gross and weird to engage in a conversation without anyone other than cis…
 
This year has probably had more missing shows than pretty much any to date. Last week storms blew through and Belghast lost internet for a good chunk of the night so we did not record. This week however we recorded a slightly longer than average show as a result. We start with Bel and Grace exploring Rune II and how it is a flawed game but also enj…
 
Hey Friends! We made it to 350 episodes! Which seems like a big number but as Thalen puts it… it is a new record over last week's new record. We break into a brief discussion about the era of big box games which brings us into a discussion of the era of pack in “feelies” From there Bel talks about his return to Final Fantasy XIV and the forming of …
 
Tonight we start the show missing several people and then Kodra sneaks in while recording and claims to have been there all along. We start out with a discussion of the Windows 11 announcement and the odd requirements it seems are going to be required to upgrade into it. From there we talk about Grace’s adventures with Subnautica: Below Zero which …
 
Be warned, if anything sounds weird… Bel is recording from a new gaming rig which seems to have brought back the whine for now. Hopefully he can resolve that in the coming weeks. We start the show talking about Mechwarrior 5 and the recent Mercs expansion. We also talk about how it has essentially destroyed the mod that folks were running to get ar…
 
Hey Friends! We are back again because Bel's life has calmed down a little bit, or at least enough to be able to reasonably make our normal recording slot. Tonight we have a whole stack of things to talk about and not enough show to fit it into. So first up we talk about R-Type Final 2 which has been bouncing for a few shows and how it is very true…
 
Tonight we have a second show in a row, which given the state of Bel right now is pretty miraculous. We are down a Kodra for assorted reasons but we have one of our shows where we have only the thinnest of topics and make a show out of them. Bel talks about experiencing how polarizing Army of the Dead is apparently as we discuss the expectations of…
 
Tonight we prove that we totally do exist and you get to listen to a very tired Bel. Bel gives a slight explanation of why we did not record the last two weeks and why nothing is certain in the coming weeks either. We talk a bit about how we are in this weird new era of “Must See TV” which is a phrase that only us “olds” will know but Disney is abs…
 
Hey Folks! Tonight we are back with what ended up being a pretty topic heavy show. Pretty sure Grace is recovering this week after the stress of last week and having to be first in the host announcement order. Genshin Impact has added player housing and Ammo talks about the “Serenitea Pot” which is confusing as hell to listen to if you have no clue…
 
Hey friends, we are down a few of our normal crew but pushing forward with the regularly scheduled nonsense. We briefly revisit Outriders and talk about the expeditions and how generally bummed we are that the theme is so bleak because the gameplay is really good. Outriders lead Tam to start playing Mass Effect Andromeda and maybe just maybe he wil…
 
Tonight we have a show that is pretty much dominated by a discussion about Outriders. Tam and Bel both attempt to avoid any outright spoilers but I feel like I still need to issue a warning. This game has some deeply disturbing themes and we talk about these. While we attempt to do so as gingerly as possible, I feel like I still need to provide a c…
 
Tonight we start off with a brief reprise of last week's Diablo 3 Season 23 topic. Because of the changes to followers this is pretty much the easiest season yet to complete in full. We talk briefly about the Diablo 2 technical alpha going on and how it is mostly just D2 but prettier. Grace talks about her experiences with Cozy Grove which is effec…
 
Tonight once again a discussion happened off air and we sorta reprise this a bit at the beginning of the show as we talk streaming services. From there we talk about Dorf Romantik and how it doesn’t include any Dwarves at all but is still awesome. From there we talk about Deep Rock Galactic which we are pretty sure is a Dwarf game. Kodra and Bel ta…
 
Hey Folks! We missed last week because Bel was knocked a little bit down after his second Covid-19 Vaccination, but all is well and we are back this week. We end up running quite a little bit over on this show. We start talking about the unrealistic expectations of gamers and the nonsensical $10,000 MMO Kickstarter. We talk about what the Disney Pl…
 
Tonight we recorded a relatively short show since we knew Sunday we would be losing an hour of time as we “spring forward”. Tonight we have a handful of topics that have been floating around our list for a while. Firstly we talk about folks being shocked that Roblox is apparently valued at 38 billion dollars during the initial public offering. We t…
 
Tonight we have a bit of an odd show at the end of a painfully long week. We talk about Outriders some more and how odd it is that they are patching the demo and being completely transparent about it. Since more folks have played it there are some fresh impressions to go along with that. This breaks out into a broader discussion of live service gam…
 
Tonight we start off with one of those discussions that almost happened before we started recording. Tam has reached the point where he was ready to tangle with the fourth boss in Valheim, which disturbingly spawns right above where most of us have made our home. Tam tells the tale of this battle and the heavy losses that were incurred. From there …
 
Tonight we start off some discussion about the unseasonable weather that has caused a few of us to experience negative 15 fahrenheit days. From there we discuss BlizzConline and how we went into it with extremely lowered expectations. We discuss the things that were announced namely Diablo 4 new class and Burning Crusade Classic. From there we vent…
 
We assure you that we are in fact not a cat… but maybe some of us are cats. Tonight we start the show off with a discussion that probably should have happened last week but completely missed the list. Final Fantasy XIV announced its next expansion and in Endwalker we are going to the Moon. We talk about this. This sorta leads its way into a discuss…
 
Tonight we are down an Ashgar but start off the show with some discussion about Bel’s adventures in Hardcore Minecraft. Grace also had never played Minecraft prior to this week and she shares her initial thoughts and just how much cultural knowledge about the game had seeped in from other sources. A topic that didn’t happen last week but we talk ab…
 
This evening's show is a bit of an odd one, but we are living in very interesting times within other interesting times. We start off with some discussion about choosing a game controller with a good D-Pad and how most just use 4 independent microswitches these days. This leads into a discussion about Celeste and Kodra attempting B-Sides. From there…
 
Tonight we talk about a few things that have been on the list for awhile along with some new fresh topics. First off Kodra talks to us about Nerts and the world of competitive solitaire. From there Bel talks about how Dragon Age Inquisition has won him over and how he thinks that it might be the best Dragon Age game so far. Ash talks about Hyrule W…
 
Tonight we have a bunch of toppings that have been hanging around on the list for awhile. We talk a bit about the announcement that Riot is making an MMORPG and our general thoughts about that. Bel talks about the need for Attract Screens in game and this leads into a discussion about Tutorialization in games. From there we venture forth into how e…
 
Tonight we continue our tradition of recording the Games of the Year show. Each year we pick three games that were the most significant for us during the previous calendar year. Additionally we throw in some honorable mentions, and then a list gets compiled of those choices and roughly sorted into games with the least overlap to the games with the …
 
Tonight we start the show with discussion about Mechwarrior 5 and the multiplayer sessions that have been happening among AggroChat folks. We also talk a bit about the extremely confusing world of intellectual property when it comes to this game. From there we revisit the topic of why forcing a stealth mission is a bad idea when you are not expecti…
 
Tonight we start the show talking about Monster Sanctuary a blend of Pokemon and Metroidvania. From there we talk about the periscope through which we view the media and how it can be wildly different for two people who are in regular communication. We talk about the problems with Cyberpunk 2077 and then Bel shares his experience playing through th…
 
Tonight we had most of the crew and started off with a topic that had been bumped. We talk for a bit about Yakuza: Like a Dragon and how it is a bit of a fresh start for that series. From there we have a somewhat impromptu discussion about Watch Dogs Legion and the thoughts Tam and Bel had while playing it. From there we discuss Spider-Man: Miles M…
 
Tonight a sequence of scheduling conflicts happened and we wound up with what felt like a fairly classic show given we were down to the cast members from the early years of this podcast. We start the show with a bit of a micro topic as Bel talks about the nonsense he is doing called Catfriend Television where he uploads security camera footage of t…
 
Tonight we sit down to record a show… with multiple topics but wind up only actually talking about one. Shadowlands, the latest World of Warcraft expansion released this past week and Bel and Grace have been playing it. We take a dive into all things afterlife as we talk about the vague sense of not being quite certain if we like it or not. There m…
 
Tonight we are down an Ashgar but work our way through a series of topics from the list. First up Bel can in fact confirm that the PlayStation 5 exists and talks about his early experiences. From we talk a bit about Bugsnax and how it is this weird Muppet Pokemon game that also has deeply disturbing Bioshock style undertones going on. Tam talks a b…
 
Tonight we start off the show with a brief discussion of the console releases this week and how none of us actually managed to get one yet. Bel has one that is still shipping and Tam has had zero luck even getting to that point in the process. Bel talks a bit about Destiny 2 Beyond Light and how it is a solid expansion but cannot make up for three …
 
Huge apologies for last week, but we realized entirely too late that our show recording would in fact fall on Halloween and we would be down to like two people. As a result we took the week off and now return with one of those shows that just has a random assemblage of topics. We talk a little bit about N7 Day actually having announcements and the …
 
Tonight we are down several folks because of various reasons. Grace and Tam are both travelling and Ammo was off celebrating her birthday. As a result we go forward with one of the smaller casts we have had in awhile. Tonight we talk a bit about Genshin Impact and the recent Resin adjustments that have been announced. Bel talks about his experience…
 
Sometimes a show happens without us really realizing it. That was absolutely the case for this evening's show because we had what felt like a very limited number of topics that filled up the full hour. We start off the show with some further discussion of Genshin Impact. Last week we thought we had been pushed up against a wall, but it turns out th…
 
Earlier this afternoon a large chunk of the AggroChat crew spent a few hours playing Among Us, a two year old game that is now suddenly the most popular thing on the planet. So of course we lead off the show talking a bit about that experience and how we are making tentative plans to do this as a regular thing. Maybe at some point we should even of…
 
Tonight we have an extra long show, because we tried to limit it down to three topics… but still had too much to say to fit within the normal allotted hour. This week we also have bonus friend Nephsys as we talk about Genshin Impact and how it came seemingly out of nowhere and conquered many of our lives. From there we talk about Star Wars Squadron…
 
Tonight we have a show that basically is Bel carpet bombing the trello with current events topics. First up we talk about the acquisition of Zenimax by Microsoft and our thoughts about that. From there we discuss the wildly tinfoil hat theory that Microsoft is going to acquire Sega next. We also talk about how poorly the Xbox One performed in Japan…
 
Ring Fit Adventure released just shy of a year ago at this point, and it is only now finally reliably available in stores. As a result of several of us finally getting our hands on it we talk a little bit about the experience of using it. From there we talk about the PS5 Price Reveal and pre-order debacle. This moves into discussing the RTX 3080 la…
 
Tonight we had some technical difficulties and as a result got to a bit of a late start… which caused us to lose track of the timing. As a result we recorded a pretty long show, but I think it was one of our better discussions. We start with Kodra explaining why he is the fiercest four year old you know and talking about Crusader Kings III some mor…
 
Tonight we start the show off with a bit of a retraction. Bel has found out that a lot of the weird mouse and camera interactions seem to have been caused by running RTX Voice while playing Avengers. As a result Bel talks about his experiences playing Avengers and how the story really shines but the gameplay is adequate but not as smooth as it coul…
 
Tonight we are back after having a week off due to scheduling. Bel is super excited to talk about Amazon’s New World, which finally leaves NDA. He goes into a deep dive of his experiences so far with the assorted systems of the game. From there we have a reasonable segue into a discussion about Guild Wars 2 and getting used to the WvW pvp system. W…
 
Bel spent a few hours playing the Avengers Beta and has some things to say about it. There are what he feels to be fundamental problems with the game that are not likely fixable before the September 4th launch. Kodra gives some recommendations for a few Sudoku games that allow you to play some of those interesting edge case games. We pick up a conv…
