AggroChat #195 – Spectacular Nonsense

The worst part about recording a podcast is trying to come up with a title for whatever the hell it was that we did the night before. We talk a bit about Belghast and his journeys into Phantasy Star Online 2.  From there Bel talks a bit about Neverwinter and the Stronghold system. Tam talks a bit about streaming Dishonored Death of the Outsider which turns into a discussion about streaming in general. We have a group of people who have been playing Legend of Five Rings Online and we check in for an update how the game has been going.  We talk a bit about Monster Hunter World now that Thalen and Grace have met Nergigante, which weirdly leads to some talks about Battle For Azeroth, Sea of Thieves and the desire for a Collaborative Sandbox game.

Topics Discussed:

  • Phantasy Star Online 2
  • Neverwinter – Strongholds
  • Dishonored Death of the Outsider
  • L5R Update
  • Monster Hunter
  • Battle For Azeroth Concerns
  • Sea of Thieves
  • Wanting a Collaborative Sandbox

Microtransaction F**kery? – Pixels & Dice #59

Microtransactions: They are everywhere in video games now, and we all generally hate them. Lootboxes, Pay-to-Win, and all that are bad enough, but now we have the specter of SWTOR rising again, in the selling of save slots in “Metal Gear Survive”. When will the game companies go too far? Theme Music – “Pinball Spring”,…

AggroChat #194 – Cactuar Invasion

This week we have a wide number of topics to discuss starting with the Nintendo Direct from March 8th and the fake out announcement of Smash Brothers.  We talk a bit about Monster Hunter 4U and Generations and why maybe one is a better starting place in the series than the other. We talk about State of Decay 2 and the backlash over it being on the Windows Store only.  We briefly talk about what it would take to make Desktop Linux a reality. Tam talks a bit about finishing the first route in Nier Automata and Bel discusses his experiences with Final Fantasy XV PC including the source of this screenshot.  Finally we wrap things up with a discussion about the Legend of Five Rings Living Card game and that Tam has recently begun playing it online unofficially.

  • Nintendo Direct
  • Phantasy Star Online 2: Cloud
  • Monster Hunter 4U and Generations
  • Monster Hunter Worlds
  • State of Decay 2
  • Windows Store
