Battle Bards Episode 125: Archlord

The Battle Bards are always on the prowl for overlooked soundtracks from overlooked MMORPGs, and this week, they might have found a new one to share.

AggroChat #212 – Respect Your Time

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 bit about his experiences with Orsinium and how playing through all three factions of the original Elder Scrolls Online content is paying off. From there we discuss long games that have a very clear failure state and how generally lousy that feels when it occurs.  Finally we talk a bit about the recent ArenaNet community issues and share some of our feelings about it.

Topics Discussed

  • Walkthroughs Guides and Cheats
    • Respecting our Time
    • Enhancing the “Fun Loop”
    • When we would not use them
  • Elder Scrolls Online
    • Finishing Orsinium
    • Payoff for finishing all original Content
  • Long Games with Failure States
    • Kingdom Death
    • Civilization
    • Battletech
    • Sim/City Builder Games
  • ArenaNet Issues
    • Emboldening Bad Actors
    • “Other” on the Internet
    • The Stress of Game Development
    • Bel’s Brain Broke
