Once again it is time for us to record our “Games of the Year” show, and this time around we did it slightly differently.  Last year we tried to come up with some title that represented the podcast as a whole, but it ended up being pure madness to get us all to agree on something.  This time we instead each picked three games to add to the list and now we are recording a show about all of those games.  Of note… this is not necessarily show about games that were released in 2015, but instead a show about games that were important to us during the calendar year.

This is being divided into two parts to cover the gap as myself and several others will be attending Pax South.  In this second part we talk about:

  • Tales of Zestiria
  • Witcher 3
  • Destiny - The Taken King
  • Diablo 3 Seasonal Play
  • Infinity Updated Ruleset
  • Fallout 4
  • Ori and the Blind Forest
  • Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward
  • Various Honorable Mentions

We realized that it had been a really really long time since we've had a normal show.  With the holidays and a handful of theme shows...  it has been amazing to have all of these special guests hanging out with us, but it had been far too long since we just did a normal "games we are playing" type show.  This week also is the return of our normal lineup of Ash, Bel, Grace, Kodra, Tam and Thalen.  Tonight we talk about....

  • Magic: The Gathering - Oath of the Gatewatch
  • Diablo 3 - Season Five Launch
  • Warframe - Co-Op Space Ninjas
  • Undertale - a few more start playing
  • Victor Vran - Secrets and Objectives Diablo-like
  • Kingdom - Combat without fine control

Next week we will begin our "Games of Last Year" show where we finally get around to talking about the games we though were our favorites from 2015.

Firstly let me lead off this post with a quick note...  I screwed up.  We had a discussion last week about potentially switching to the Season/Episode format for our show numbers.  After the discussion we decided to go with continuing the bigger numbers is better format.  Before the show I go out and double check to make sure what episode we are on... and apparently I look at the wrong episode.  As a result I absolutely announced this week as 89 when it should have been 90.  I feel strange about edits... largely because the format of our show is intended to be like listening in on an existing conversation.  So for the time being I've decided to let my screw up stand...  feel free to mock me.

On the week of Star Wars the Force Awakens release we actually had planned on recording a show on our feelings about the movie.  The thing is... that we all for the most part loved the movie so much that we did not want to add to the spoilers on the internet.  As a result we put off the show until a point where we felt it was "fair game".  Upon coming back to work after New Years it seems like the internet has declared Star Wars spoilers open season, so as a result we decided to go ahead and record the show.  What ended up happening is a show really unlike what I expected.  It was far more critical than the hour and a half gush fest that I expected...  but still from the point of fans talking about fandom.

Tonight we also welcome back Dallian and Neph for yet another "big show" which are starting to seem far more common this year.

In November AggroChat decided to try a new experiment.  There was a game coming out that month that all of us wanted to play, so when Tam went to make his choice he opted to go with Fallout 4.  That said we all agreed that we would need more than a month to play the game, and ultimately we spend a little over two months with the game.  Any Bethesda game is massive, and simply takes a sheer volume of hours to sift through the content… and even then there is pretty much no chance you will ever experience all of it.

For this show we once again pulled in Inkybrushes who we had on the recent Villians show, and called back a regular host from our early days Dallian.  The majority of the cast had beaten the game with at least one ending, and a few managed to get multiple endings.  The funny thing is… for a game that we all universally liked, we all had a bunch of negative comments as well.  I guess that is the nature of our podcast, that we end up focused on the things that frustrated us and often miss some of the things we really enjoyed.  This is a full spoiler deep dive into the storyline and various game elements, so if you have not played the game and intend to, I highly suggest you skip this show until a later date.
