This week we kick off the show with a bizarre dream Belghast had about an AggroChat road trip, and it sort of just devolves from there. We discuss a lot of things, including a lengthy discussion about how whales subsidizing other players… is absolutely not just a thing for free to play games and is in fact evidence in Magic the Gathering as well. Other topics range from board games as video games, to the Rise of Iron Destiny expansion. We also talk about the madness that was Mythic+ mode in World of Warcraft and our recent experiences with that game. Was a fun show to record that meandered like mad, so if that is your thing… this is the recording for you.

This week we finally get around to discussing the August AggroChat Game Club title, The Witness. The game has been called a bunch of things, but the most common assessment has related it to Myst. We discuss why this is probably a bad comparison among other things. This absolutely clicked with some of our team, and others bounced super hard off of the title. Much discussion is had however and that was the entire point of doing a Game Club so it feels like this title was an absolute success. Join us as we delve into the game in a spoilery journey into The Witness.

This week we have a bizarre show that somehow covers a lot of content without us actually realizing it. Since Tam and Kodra attended Pax West last week we went into a discussion about all of the stuff they saw there. From there we branch out into a discussion about Guild Wars 2 and Tam recently picking the game up after talking to a friend about it. We largely discuss how the game has improved since launch and that Tam, Ash and Kodra are enjoying in it. Finally we wrap up the evening talking about World of Warcraft Legion and some of the experiences Grace and Belghast have after hitting the new level cap and experiencing World Quests.

Tonight we are down a Tam thanks to Pax West Shennanigans, and in theory at least we will be talking soon about those experiences. However for the time being… we talk a bunch of stuff but mostly World of Warcraft Legion. Right now Ashgar, Belghast and Grace are playing… and talk about their experiences with the launch, and the revisions to the game. The long story short is that we all seem to be enjoying ourselves. The main story is still frustrating, but the sub stories are amazing. We also talk a little bit about the game of the month Tales of Maj’Eyal, largely related to a few tips for getting started and things that players should really avoid getting bogged down in. Finally Kodra talks about his experiences with Dues Ex and Necropolis in recent play sessions for both.
Things Discussed - World of Warcraft - Legion - Class Halls - Spec Fantasy - Leveling Content - Tales of Maj’Eyal - Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - Necropolis
