AggroChat #174 – Old School IPX/SPX

Tonight we are a bit out of sorts since we are once again down two people… and for the most part have been playing games that will ultimately end up in a game club show.  This leads to one of the more meandering shows we have recorded in a really long time where we transition from topic to topic without really announcing the leaps.  This was also one of the harder shows to name so I picked one random snippet of obscure discussion from the middle of the show.  The show starts with me varying my normal announcing order… and it just sorta continues going awkwardly from there.  Enjoy!

 

Topics Discussed

  • Through The Ages
  • Fantasy Strike
  • Pokken Tournament
  • Tangle Deep
  • Old School DOS Gaming
  • Guild Wars 2 Content Messaging
  • Games Wasting Our Time
  • Dragonquest
  • Warriors Games
  • Toys R Us Bankruptcy

Contains Moderate Peril: Episode 174 Bad Penny

Show notes:

“Exposure” or pay? [Starts 3:05] Is offering content providers “exposure” a comparable alternative to pay? Jimquisition: Exposure

Are MMORPG players a minority in their own genre? [Starts 31:19] Massively Over Thinking: MMO players have become a minority in their own genre. Sour grapes or have some players been “thrown out of their own party”?

Have we had enough of experts? [Starts 44:22] Mark Kermode: Frame of reference

AggroChat #173 – Vampire Pirate Dinosaurs

Tonight we are down both a Thalen and a Tam and get off on some meandering topics.  We start off with some discussion about the Final Fantasy XIV Rising event that just finished and the introduction of the cheap dungeon.  From there Belghast gets pretty deep in the woods talking about infusion mechanics and Destiny 2.  We branch off from there into a discussion that is really hard to describe.  Functionally we were having a chat about MMOs and whether or not the devs are obligated to provide a uniform experience for all players and all activities in a game.  This branches out into a bunch of directions from the PVP/PVE debate to how uneven some of the artifact weapon quests felt in World of Warcraft Legion.  Kodra talks a bit about his recent journey into the iOS port of one of his favorite Vlaada Chvatil games…  Though the Ages.  Ashgar gives us some updates on his experience playing through Monster Hunter Stories and we delve a bit into the new Magic the Gathering expansion Ixalan.

Topics Discussed

  • Final Fantasy XIV – The Rising Event
  • Destiny 2 Mechanics
  • Providing Uniform MMO Player Experiences
  • Through the Ages iOS
  • Monster Hunter Stories
  • Ixalan Pre-Pre-Release
