AggroChat #203 – Warmind Whisperer

Tonight we are down a Thalen because storms cause power outages.  Among the topics discussed is the new Destiny 2 expansion called Warmind.  Belghast has spent a significant amount of time with it and has things to say.  From there Tam goes into his experiences with Battletech and why maybe being absolutely completely true to pen and paper sometimes has issues.  Ash talks about Pillars of Eternity 2… and how he has yet to actually play it but has spent a lot of time digging around in the JSON code. Finally we wrap things up with a discussion of Magic the Gathering Commander…  and how to build a deck designed not to win but instead to do interesting things and subvert the flow of the game.

Topics Discussed:

  • Destiny 2: Warmind
  • Battletech
  • Pillars of Eternity 2
  • Magic the Gathering – Commander

AggroChat #202 – Sequential Things

Tonight we are extremely happy that Tam is still with us.  Find out how exactly he has managed to be hit five different times by motor vehicles.  With his ability to take a fall he is still with us and healing… but still very sore. We talk a bit about the Marvel Cinematic Universe in general terms and attempt to be as spoiler free as possible.  Largely we discuss what a feat it is to have 19 movies and 11 television series that all more or less interact with each other in the same shared universe. From there Kodra and Belghast talks a bit about Magic the Gathering Arena and the new quick draft mode.  Finally Tam talks a bit about his experiences with Yakuza Zero and what a weird game that ultimately is.

Topics Discussed:

  • Marvel Cinematic Universe
  • Magic the Gathering Arena Drafting
  • Yakuza 0
