Tonight we start out with a list of topics to discuss… and never quite make it past E3 2018.  This was one packed year with a bunch of interesting titles announced. We talk about most of the shows and some of the titles that interested each of us the most.  We jump around a lot so it is more of a free form discussion rather than anything structured. This means we occasionally jump off and talk about things that are not necessarily E3 related.


Topics Discussed

  • E3 2018
  • Many titles
  • Very announcements
  • Wow
  • Yes I did just do that

Tonight we return with a regular show but are unfortunately down a Tam and a Grace.  We talk a bit about Magic the Gathering and more specifically the Battle Bond expansion set as well as Magic Arena getting the Full Standard compliment of expansions.  Kodra is more excited however about the ability to do draft mode all the time without having to wait for the weekend events. Bel talks a bit about his recent binging of Dishonored and how playing those games in order turns it into a Mass Effect series sort of experience.  From there Bel goes on about the madness he has been doing with Parsec Gaming. We talk a bit about how much we think the Atari VCS is highly possibly vaporware… which leads to some discussion about the lies that are often told at E3. Finally Thalen talks a bit about his experiences with a shop keeper roguelike called Moonlighter.

Topics Discussed:

  • Magic the Gathering: Battle Bond
  • Magic Arena - Full Standard
  • Dishonored Series
  • Parsec Gaming
  • Atari VCS
  • E3 Lies
  • Moonlighter

Tonight we talk about the May AggroChat Game Club game…  Heroes of Hammerwatch. This was Belghast’s pick who largely though we needed a much more relaxing game after the deep feels that A Night in the Woods gave us.  Additionally the first one was a lot of fun and it was well worth exploring what the indirect sequel had to offer. This leads us down a path where we talk about the differences between Rogue-lite and Rogue-like as well as some discussion about procedural generation versus hand built maps.  We also talk a bit about the June game of the month Evoland 2.

Topics Featured:

  • Our New Battle Royale Mode
  • Heroes of Hammerwatch
  • Rogue-lite vs Rogue-like
  • Procedural vs Hand Built
  • Evoland 2
  • Final Fantasy Four Job Fiesta
