This week is a bit different than our normal show.  One of the awesome bloggers and podcasters in the blaugust initiative has posed her own challenge.  She is trying to collect information on how World of Warcraft has effected other gamers looking for both current and former players.  So this week we skipped doing our normal podcast to do a megacast in which we answer the 10 questions she has posed.  The end result is a lot of nostalgia but some pretty good conversation about World of Warcraft and MMO gaming as a whole.  The show went a bit longer than normal, but we wanted to push through all ten questions this week since we would be without Kodra next week as he is off to GenCon.  I hope you all enjoy.

This week we talk about lots of things, the Blaugust initiative, whats going on with League of Legends, Shovel Knight, Rogue Legacy... but more importantly our return to Final Fantasy XIV and just how amazing charming that game is.  The game has had a large number of extremely content dense patches since we last played, but more importantly the community is really awesome.

It so happens this week that we are all tied up with various things.  I am helping out with the Twitter Math Camp 2014 session, and have been for the better part of this week.  Rae is off on a cruise with her family, and Ashgar is at a family reunion.  Kodra... well I am not sure what he is doing but it probably involves ponies, and as such he is out of comission as well.  As a result I am recording a quick note of apology that we are not having a proper show this week.

This week Rae is travelling, so I am joined by Kodra and Ashgar.  We talk about the recent news of the Yogventures Kickstarter failure, and the rammifications it has on kickstarters as a whole.  Additionally we talk about Destiny Beta, the Final Fantasy XIV weekend, my switch from Twitch to Hitbox, Wolfenstein New Order and lots of other things in the space inbetween.

We have the full cast this week as we talk about the various things we have been playing and dig into the concept of exclusionary subcultures and why they happen.  Exciting news from Kodra as we find out he is moving on to the first My Little Pony Cardgame championships at GenCon.  Additionally we hear about Rae's journey through Adventure Time Battle Party, and my attempt to get established on the new Alliance of Awesome Minecraft server.

Join us for a very unlucky episode 13, as we realize that Kodra's new "BreadMachine" upgrade from his previous "Toaster" is apparently haunted.  Kodra, Belghast, Rae, Ashgar and Tam talk about Tomb Raider, Thomas Was Alone, Wildstar, The Divinity Series, Stanley Parable, Rob Pardo leaving Blizzard and multiple other things along the way.

Kodra and Ashgar are not available this week so we are breaking in a brand new guest, or at least new to podcasting.  Warenwolf is a longtime friend that dates back to the early days of World of Warcraft, and has been a part of the regularly nightly group for years.  Additionally we have the return of our perineal "5th Man" Dallian and we are always happy to have him.  Tonight we talk about the madness that is the Summer Steam sale as well as our experiences with Wasteland 2, Wildstar, Saints Row IV, 7 Days to Die and a bit about my experiences with the Warlords of Draenor beta.

This week we once again have the original cast of hosts.  Tonight we talk about a bunch of different topics including a run down of Kodras trip to Origin, and some discussion that spun out of it relating to geek on geek shaming.  At Aggrochat we don't judge and are proud to let our geek flags fly high.  Also some talk about Warlords of Draenor Alpha and Wildstar.

This week Belghast, Rae, Tam and Dallian run down the things that made them interested in various games debuted at this years E3 conference.  A far less focused show than normal, but lots of good conversation about stuff.

This week we actually have the full crew back and assembled.  Kodra regales us with talk of his strategy for the My Little Pony card game, as he is planning on competing next week at Origins with a few decks.  We talk a bit about the WoW Warlords of Draenor Alpha release and the apparent absense of an NDA.  The bulk of the show however is us breaking down Wildstar and how exactly we feel about the game.  Finally in apparently a new feature Kodra, Rae and Ashgar talk about the recent LCS games while I stand around confused.  This week we are featuring Belghast, Ashgar, Rae, and Kodra.
