Tonight signals the triumphant return of Doctor Grace! I cannot adequately express how happy we are to have her back among our number. As far as topics go… we once again punt forward the only topic that we had planned and replace them with a few discussions gathered up moments before we started recording. Tonight we talk about Anthem and get Gr ...…
 
Tonight we start the show with a heartfelt congratulations for our very own now Doctor Grace, for passing the gauntlet and defending her thesis. While I am certain we will revisit this point when she officially returns to the show, we thought it was worth noting tonight. After derailing completely on a discussion about the origin of the Garter ...…
 
This week we talk about the topic that has spent the most time so far rolling from show to show because we didn’t feel like we had enough time to properly address it. We have a Trello board where we stub out future topics, and before Christmas Tam put the topic of Silent versus Voiced protagonists on that board… and we are finally getting aroun ...…
 
This week we are still down a Grace but also down a Tamrielo because work travel happens. Tonight we start the show with a discussion of Civilization VI and its new Gathering Storm expansion. This introduces the fearful Hockey Rink building and Mountie fielding Canadian Army… and also natural disasters. Then we get into a discussion about Anthe ...…
 
This evening we discuss the Anthem “Launch” and the spreadsheet that is required to understand it. We give a quick summary of our experiences and how it is turning out to be really freaking good. From there we dive into Silksong the Hornet DLC that has turned into its own larger than the original Hollow Knight game. We also talk about the first ...…
 
Tonight we have a bunch of not entirely related topics, but there is at least a minor theme of how you end something is extremely important. Bel talks a bit about his experiences with the latest brand name beta in the form of Division 2. From there he also shares some frustrations with the way Assassin’s Creed Origins is ending which leads its ...…
 
Tonight we talk about a bunch of things that have been sitting in our list as well as a quick revisit of Anthem and how much difference a week can make. We all for the most part struggled last weekend but things have gone extremely smoothly this weekend. From there we talk about the revelations from Fanfest Paris… and the new Gunbreaker class g ...…
 
Tonight we talk mostly about the Anthem Demo and our thoughts about it. Having played it or at least repeatedly attempted to play it... we have things to discuss from our feelings about various Javelin types to the general feel of the gameplay. Additionally we talk a bit about Ravnica Allegiances which officially came out this week. Kodra and B ...…
 
Tonight we have a fairly packed show as Ashgar is recording from Pax South 2019. As such we start off with a rundown of some of the games he played. From there Bel talks a bit about TemTem or a game he backed but forgot to fill out the survey for that is actually a Not-Pokemon MMORPG. We dive into some talk about games that have massively overh ...…
 
There is an auditory warning, but we figured we would throw one out here as well. During about the last 15 minutes of the podcast something went wrong with Bel’s audio where the last bit of every statement got clipped. So you essentially lost the last word he was saying. This weeks show starts with a discussion about Kickstarter projects, which ...…
 
This week we set out a plan of some dozen different topics… but only actually made it through two of them. Last we recorded the Games of the Year show and this week we started things off with some discussion of a few of the honorable mentions that didn’t quite make the list. From there we had a discussion about what games interest us for the up ...…
 
This evening we do our traditional Games of the Year show, and apparently we are way less verbose than we used to be. These shows used to get chopped into two roughly hour and a half long shows… but this year we managed to do it in pretty much two hours straight. What makes this even more interesting is the fact that we churned through nineteen ...…
 
Tonight we are down a few people and have a fairly scattered show where we cover a bunch of topics… but none of them super deeply? You can tell we were all somewhat out of it because while editing the podcast there were a bunch of really lengthy pauses. Tonight Bel rails in the Elder Scrolls Patcher apparently being blocked by various ISPs incl ...…
 
Tonight we had more topics than we had time to talk about them, but we managed to hit the majority of them. First up Bel talks about his frustrations with Black Armory the latest content drop in Destiny 2 and their overarching plan of content releases going forward. He also talks a bit about the Last Wish raid that he got drug through this week ...…
 
Tonight we talk a bit about Monster Hunter World Winter Star Event and how maddening the Tempered Kirin is. From there we talk about the closing of MMOs and specifically the loss of Wildstar. Several of us have returned to Final Fantasy XIV as is often the case at the end of an expansion. We briefly talk about some frustrations with World of Wa ...…
 
Tonight we talk about a bunch of differing topics… that sorta blend together into a mix of ideas. We start off with some discussion of Thanksgiving Leftover abominations. From here Belghast talks a bit about his experiences with extremely Hardcore players on mobile phone games. This sorta leads its way into discussions of MMO Design problems, w ...…
 
Tonight we talk about a bunch of things starting off with the interesting and also sort of weird experience of watching a movie, and having a live orchestra play the soundtrack. Ash talks about his experiences with the new Spyro the dragon and the practice of modernizing games without really changing the original gameplay. From there we talk ab ...…
 
Tonight we are down a few people but pick up with a topic that sorta got skipped from the previous week which is Deltarune the new Toby Fox Game. From there Kodra talks about his experiences with The Messenger and then the game Getting Over It. At which point we discuss how much Kodra apparently loves meat grinder games. Bel talks about the pur ...…
 
Tonight we have a packed show full of topics to discuss because as we hurdle towards the holiday season… a bunch of stuff is happening. First up we talk about Super Smash Bros Ultimate and the inclusion of the World of Light single player system. From there with similar Nintendo topics we talk a bit about the Diablo 3 Switch release and just ho ...…
 
This week we welcome Thalen back from his Japanese sojourn, and with that we have a brief reprisal of the monetization topic from a few weeks back. From there he talks a bit about his own experiences in Japan and how watching Tam experience it for the first time brought back all the feelings of his own first memories. We talk a bit about slow g ...…
 
Tonight we lead off the show with a brief explanation of why there was no show last week. Namely Bel was at a wedding, Grace still in DC, Tam and Thalen in Japan… and Kodra and Ash probably wisely decided not to record a duo show. No offense to any of the bajillion podcasts out there that are always a duo show… but that isn’t our schtick. Since ...…
 
This week we are down half of our show, but weirdly enough ended up very close to our original line up from the first few AggroChat shows… only missing Rae. We were concerned we might not have enough material for a show, but wound up only about 10 minutes short of our average which seems pretty good. Tonight we talk about Monetization in Free t ...…
 
Tonight my stalwart friends managed to make me completely fail at getting through the intro once more. The truth is I never know what Ash is going to say when I call upon him… tonight was not a thing I was expecting. The first game discussed was Spiderman for PS4 which had rolled over from a few shows. Next up the start of the MTG Arena Open Be ...…
 
Tonight we have another show largely made up of topics that have rolled over from previous shows when we ran out of time. We start the show with some reasonable methadone for Justice Monsters Five… in the form of a little early access Android game called Zombie Rollers. From there we talk a bit about Dragon Quest XI which leads to a discussion ...…
 
Tonight we record a show that has almost nothing to do with Gorb… but you are going to get that as a name anyways because reasons. This is another one of those shows that has a bunch of topics that kept rolling over from other shows until we managed to align enough of them that sorta made sense together. Tonight we talk about MMOs an awful lot ...…
 
Last week we did not have a show because half of AggroChat was at Pax West and no one really wanted to listen to Grace and I trying to do a show by ourselves. Tonight however we have the entire gang back with a bounty of games to talk about from Pax West 2018. This is a really long list and we managed to get through all of them in our normal al ...…
 
Tonight we have the full group and end up talking mostly about World of Warcraft and the Battle For Azeroth expansion so far. If you listened last week... Tam became interested enough in the expansion that he renewed his account which lead to a whole sequence of events happening. One of which resulted in him finding out he had a hopelessly brok ...…
 
This evening we talk about a bunch of stuff but first Ashgar sings for us and makes me lose my shit… so working as intended. Grace and Bel talk about their experiences in Battle For Azeroth so far and how it turned out not to be as factiony as we expected. We also sorta convince Tam to give the story a shot even though we know he will bounce of ...…
 
Tonight Belghast completely crashes and has to reboot, during the intro. Additionally Kodra also crashes at some point during the LARP conversation and we sorta have to move on while he comes back online. It is one of those shows. You have been warned. We talk about GenCon and the convention going experience. We talk a bit about Steambirds Alli ...…
 
As part of the 2018 Blaugust Reborn Initiative the blogger Chestnut from Gamer Girl Confessions (gamergirlconfessions.com) has challenged us to create some mini podcasts. There is a sequence of questions that we were asked to answer, and in my case I sorta gave some pretty big combo answers for most of them. You can find the full length of ques ...…
 
Tonight we have as show that goes way off course, but often times those are some of our better shows because we follow the passion. Bel talks a bit about Blaugust Reborn and the successes so far. All of the talk about World of Warcraft has lead Tam to go back and play Warcraft 3. We talk about where all of the story beats come from and where Wo ...…
 
Tonight we sit down and talk through our feelings about Battle For Azeroth and its fairly tone deaf ad campaign. We dig into the "It Matters" videos and how it feels fairly irresponsible at a time when our country and world is pulled apart already by some fairly serious points of division. We talk about how playing World of Warcraft should be a ...…
 
Tonight we are down a few people... in fact half of them. So you have to deal with the remainder that is left after you take away a Kodra, Thalen and Grace. For those who are caught up with their critical AggroMath skills... you are left with a Bel, a Tam and an Ash. Three individuals who have mostly been playing Elder Scrolls Online and as a r ...…
 
Tonight we continue our recent tradition of picking up on topics that we did not quite have time for on the previous episode. First off we discuss our general feelings about “cheating” and by cheating we are talking about relying on guides, maps, and walkthroughs in additional to other more traditional cheats and mods. From there Bel talks a bi ...…
 
Tonight we record a normal show... and by normal I mean one that starts off completely derailing Belghast. We have a new way of trying to make sure topics that don't actually make it on a weeks show roll over to the next week... and as a result there are a bunch of topics that have been sitting in limbo for awhile that we dig into. Topics Discu ...…
 
Tonight we record our June 2018 Game of the Month Show for the quirky parody RPG Evoland 2. This was Ashgar's pick because it largely expands on the part of Evoland 1 that felt really good. We talk about what the game does extremely well and how it fell a little short by maybe letting some of the sequences outstay its welcome. We also talk a bi ...…
 
Last week we went into the show with a long list of topics, and then wound up only talking about the news coming out of E3 2018. This week we attempt to pick up the pieces left on the cutting room floor and move on with some of the topics we missed. Bel talks a bit about getting into the survival mode in The Division. Tam discusses his journies ...…
 
Tonight we start out with a list of topics to discuss… and never quite make it past E3 2018. This was one packed year with a bunch of interesting titles announced. We talk about most of the shows and some of the titles that interested each of us the most. We jump around a lot so it is more of a free form discussion rather than anything structur ...…
 
Tonight we return with a regular show but are unfortunately down a Tam and a Grace. We talk a bit about Magic the Gathering and more specifically the Battle Bond expansion set as well as Magic Arena getting the Full Standard compliment of expansions. Kodra is more excited however about the ability to do draft mode all the time without having to ...…
 
Tonight we talk about the May AggroChat Game Club game… Heroes of Hammerwatch. This was Belghast’s pick who largely though we needed a much more relaxing game after the deep feels that A Night in the Woods gave us. Additionally the first one was a lot of fun and it was well worth exploring what the indirect sequel had to offer. This leads us do ...…
 
Tonight we change things up a bit and instead of recording the Game of the Month show… we are in fact doing a normal style show. By normal… I mean we are recording with a Tam who has been day drinking. We start off the discussion with Dauntless that just launched on the 24th… and by launch I mean it is a free to play game going into open beta w ...…
 
Tonight we are down both an Ashgar and a Kodra… and the intro felt really weird to start with Grace. Tonight we had one of those nights where we felt like we didn’t have an awful lot to talk about… but then wound up running over time anyways. Bel talks about his experiences with State of Decay 2 on both Xbox One and PC and how it has changed fr ...…
 
Tonight we are down a Thalen because storms cause power outages. Among the topics discussed is the new Destiny 2 expansion called Warmind. Belghast has spent a significant amount of time with it and has things to say. From there Tam goes into his experiences with Battletech and why maybe being absolutely completely true to pen and paper sometim ...…
 
Tonight we are extremely happy that Tam is still with us. Find out how exactly he has managed to be hit five different times by motor vehicles. With his ability to take a fall he is still with us and healing… but still very sore. We talk a bit about the Marvel Cinematic Universe in general terms and attempt to be as spoiler free as possible. La ...…
 
This week we talk about the April AggroChat Game Club title… Night in the Woods. This was Kodra’s pick and has turned out to be quite the emotional ride of the AggroChat crew. This game is somewhat of a mirror in that it reflects back the baggage you bring with you. Each of us had experiences that felt very real and similar to things happening ...…
 
Tonight we are recording our two hundredth episode of AggroChat and we still have no clue what we are doing. There was a joke floating around this week that “lets make a podcast” is the new version of “let's form a band” and honestly… it sorta is. April 13th of 2014 I gathered up some of my friends and said, let's do a thing where we mostly jus ...…
 
In a human sense AggroChat just turned 5 years old this last Friday… but in a more correct sense we have now completely four entire years of this podcast. I still feel like we really don’t completely know what we are doing here. As the patron saint of bad decisions… Belghast journeys back into Everquest… not EQ2 but the original and talks a bit ...…
 
Tonight we are back recording an normal show after last week's game of the year show. This also marks the first show we are purposefully trying to time box at around 90 minutes worth of recording time... which turns into roughly an hour of run time after editing. The plan is to make this show a little easier to consume... and also easier to rec ...…
 
This week we record the March AggroChat Game Club game… The Sexy Brutale. This murder mystery puzzle game is Thalen’s pick and the crew talks about their experiences playing the game and sorting out how best to utilize those time warping powers. This also happens to be the first show ever recorded without Belghast, and while everything seems to ...…
 
Tonight we talk a bit about the arrival to Monster Hunter World of the most annoying griefer… Deviljho… aka Pickle. We also talk a bit about the weapon balance changes. From there we talk a bit about crafting systems in games and what we have liked and where they have fallen short. From there we talk a bit about Eureka in Final Fantasy XIV and ...…
