AggroChat #180 – The Destiny 2 Show

This week we are doing some nonsense.  Originally Divinity Original Sin 2 was the October game of the month, but we largely decided we needed more time with that game.  As a result we swapped what was going to be the November game of the month in…  since we were in most part ready to talk about Destiny 2 and primarily the PC release.  So this week we are doing that and discussing the game that Belghast has devoted almost 200 hours playing already between both the PC and PS4 releases.  He may or may not be a little obsessed about it, and that’s fine because now the other members of AggroChat sorta understand his constant insane ramblings about it.  Join us as we dig into the game and talk about whether or not this really is a worthy sequel.

Contains Moderate Peril: Episode 176 Koala Juice

Show notes:

Loot boxes, algorithms and making money. [Starts 1:39] Is games monetisation becoming to egregious?

Read the Label [Starts 41:23] Games, TV and movies are all rated. Yet some consumers choose to remain ignorant and are shocked and outraged by content. Why?

The future is co-op play [Starts 1:13:27] EA seems to think the future lies in co-op play. What does this mean for single player games?

Theme (Quick Thinking) by Neil Cross. Voiceover by Eric Holloway.

AggroChat #179 – Shadespire

This week we have a more normal show after last weeks super serious one.  We do however have a little bit of a call back in the form of a short discussion about how vocal minorities can negatively impact the press surrounding a game.  We talk a bit about the launch of Destiny 2 on the PC and how relatively smoothly it has gone.  We touch ever so briefly on the madness happening in Warframe right now with Twitch streams and free loot.  From there we delve into Warhammer Shadespire and spend a good deal of time talking about it and past Games Workshop games.  This leads to a bit of a discussion about the problem Magic the Gathering has with onboarding new players.  Thalen talks about his experiences playing Orwell, and Tam and Ash talk a bit about the Legend of Five Rings Living Card Game.  Finally we wrap things up with some talk about clicker games in general and two specifically:  Paperclips and Succubox.

Featuring

  • Vocal Minority in Gaming
  • Destiny 2 Launch
  • Warframe Twitch Nonsense
  • Warhammer Shadespire
  • Magic the Gathering Onboarding Problems
  • Orwell
  • Legend of Five Rings Living Card Game
