AggroChat #177 – Extreme Home Makeover

This is one of those weeks when we seemed to have more topics to discuss than could possibly fit in a single show.  We even had to drop one for the sake of time that we will hopefully revisit in a future episode.  We start the show off by talking about Shirogane Extreme mode…  or the land rush for housing in the newly opened district in Final Fantasy XIV.  Ash and Tam took one for the team and sacrificed sleep schedule to get us a brand new house.  From there we talk about Guild Wars 2 Path of Fire expansion and some of the things we have noticed so far.  Belghast talks a bit about the Iron Banner 2.0 in Destiny, and some miscellaneous discussion about how clans work.  Ash and Thalen discuss Dragon Quest Heroes 2 and the Heroes game genre in general.  We wrap up with a discussion on Warhammer starting with the brand new stand alone Shadespire game and then talk a bit about Warhammer 40k.

Topics Discussed

  • Shirogane Extreme
  • Guild Wars 2 Path of Fire
  • Destiny 2 Iron Banner
  • Dragon Quest Heroes 2
  • Warhammer Shadespire
  • Warhammer 40k

AggroChat #176 – Horizon Zero Dawn Show

Tonight we talk about the September game of the month Horizon Zero Dawn.  As is always the case with our game club shows, this is a full spoiler jaunt into this post apocalyptic vision by Guerilla Games.  HZD was featured on our Games of the Year show, but since several had yet to beat it we did not do the normal deep dive that we do during a game club show.  We talk about what might be the most interesting new science fiction property in recent memory.

AggroChat #175 – Fun with Raptors

We are down a Tam and a Thalen, and in the case of Tam it was due to his birthday celebrations..  So if you see Tam online send him some belated wishes.  This week we lead things off with some talk about Pokken Tournament and its recent release on the Switch as Kodra and Ashgar spent some time playing it this week.  We talk about the Nintendo Switch in general and the fact that we all seem to prefer buying new games on it rather than older Nintendo consoles.  We talk a bit about the release of Ixalan and some general discussion about the decision to go away from ultra rare chase cards.  Belghast talks a bit about the larger Magic the Gathering market place and how this move seems to making prices a bit more stable so far.  We talk a bit about our hopes for Magic the Gathering Arena, and how it might bring us what we actually have wanted for awhile…  actual Magic in a Hearthstone package.  Belghast talks about the Destiny 2 Faction Rally event and how he has collected all 12 weapons currently available from it.  Ashgar talks a bit about his experiences in Guild Wars 2 Path of Fire and collecting mounts.  Finally Bel talks a bit about the Final Fantasy Record Keeper 30th anniversary event that is going on currently.
