AggroChat #172 – The Destiniest Destiny

Tonight we have a bunch of stuff on the docket.  We lead off with a discussion about Pax West 2017 that Tam, Kodra and Ashgar attended last weekend.  From there we dive into some discussion about the Destiny 2 PS4 launch and how it has been consuming every moment of Bel’s game time.  Another big accomplishment is that our Guild in Guild Wars 2 successfully captured the Guild Hall…  and have unlocked a completely engrossing minigame in the form of upgrading it.  We delve a bit into the mobile game Legendary Game of Heroes, and then veer off the deep end into some discussion about Sonic Mania and the Sonic Archie Comics.  The insanity that follows continued long after the podcast… and ultimately had a bunch of us leaving the channel to avoid it.  Lastly we talk a bit about Magic the Gathering Arena, their attempt to capture that Hearthstone goodness with actual magic cards.

Topics Discussed

  • Pax West 2017
  • Destiny 2 PS4
  • Guild Wars 2 Guild Hall
  • Legendary Game of Heroes
  • Sonic Mania
  • Sonic Comics
  • Magic the Gathering Arena

AggroChat #170 – Full Throttle Show

Tonight we record the August AggroChat Game Club title… Full Throttle.  This was picked by Thalen for a bunch of reasons but at least in part because we had yet to play a classic point and click adventure game.  With Full Throttle being relatively recently remastered, it made it an excellent candidate since it was more or less going to run well on any system.  Unfortunately one of our show members opted to try playing it on a mobile platform where the experience was less than desireable.  We talk about our thoughts on Full Throttle and adventure games in general as the show goes way off the rails towards the end with many wild trips into nostalgia land.
