Aggrochat #188 – The Persona 5 Show

This week we are back after an impromptu absence brought on by the Flu.  It is time to record our December/January game of the month show…  Persona 5.  This was Tam’s pick and he went back and forth as to whether or not he should pick such a long game.  However considering we recorded two full hours of packed conversation I am guessing it was a pretty great choice.  We also announce Grace’s pick for the February game of the month…  Pyre a game that surprisingly only one of us has played given just how much we tend to love games from Super Giant.

AggroChat #187 – Pax South Vicariously

Firstly I feel like I need to lead with an apology.  I’ve picked up some crud over the last few weeks and as a result my voice is pretty rough.  I manage to make it through the show but there are a handful of long pauses where I went into a coughing fit.  Tonight we talk about how jealous I am that Ash is at Pax South and I am not.  The timing was horrible and I wouldn’t have wanted to be there in this condition anyways.  We talk a bit about Destiny 2 announced changes and Kodra’s recent experiences with Super Mario Odyssey.  From there we dive into the recent Nintendo Direct and Tam’s current forray back into Final Fantasy XIV.  Lastly we talk a bit about the Total War series, specifically Warhammer 1 and 2.

Topics Discussed

  • Pax South Stuff
  • Lightseekers Awakening
  • Destiny 2 Changes
  • Super Mario Odyssey
  • Nintendo Direct
  • Final Fantasy XIV
  • Warhammer Total War I/II

AggroChat #186 – Games of the Year 2017

After our long holiday break we return to record the 2017 Games of the Year show.  This time around we have sixteen games to talk about.  When you get six hosts and ask them what their favorite games were for a calendar year… you are going to get a bunch of answers.  Traditionally in the past we have split this into two shows, but this year we recorded it in one go for a show that weighs in a little over 2 hours long.  It was a great year for gaming and as always we would love to hear what our listeners favorite picks were.

  • Horizon: Zero Dawn
  • Persona 5
  • FFXIV: Stormblood
  • Super Mario Odyssey
