Tonight we have another big rambly show where we start out having zero clue what we are going to talk about… and then wind up recording for a couple hours. Edited down the show ends up being roughly another hour and a half experience. Tonight we talk at length about our addiction to Final Fantasy XIV and the Palace of the Dead. Grace and I talk a bit about the blah feeling this latest patch cycle has given us in World of Warcraft. Bel talk about getting into the Crowfall pre-alpha and how it is in fact a piece of software that he installed on his system and does in fact launch. We talk a bit a bit about the weird City of Heroes nostalgia game wave and how there really is only room for one of those titles in the market. We also talk about the drought of MMOs on the horizon and how instead it seems to be the Golden Age of expansions for existing games. Bel gives an update on the gaming at work thing, and his first steps into God Eater. Finally we have a weird offshoot into talking about building Gundams before wrapping things up.
Topics Discussed: Final Fantasy XIV - World of Warcraft Blahs - Crowfall Disappointment - City of Heroes nostalgia - Drought of New MMOs - Golden Age of Expansions - Elder Scrolls Online - Work Gaming Space - God Eater - Gundam Kits

Tonight we assembled and thought we had nothing to talk about… but apparently we were super wrong. As is usually the case with us when we think we have nothing… we wind up recording a two hour show. While it doesn’t weigh in quite that long this week, it still is a pretty lengthy discussion about stuff and things… and sometimes gaming. We apparently have an awful lot to say about Final Fantasy XIV and the fact that Stormblood brings no new tanks into the fold. We also talk a bit about how tank design seems to always fit within the same small box and how they might benefit from branching out a bit. After this bulk of the discussion we weave through a whole bunch of other topics.

We are back to normal… at least for a little while. This is the first traditional show we have recorded in three weeks and it felt a little odd to get back in the swing of things. Tonight we talk about Pax South and the games that Ashgar and Belghast played while there. We talk about our recent flare up of Final Fantasy XIV and getting back in the swing of things. Tam and Kodra talk about Samurai Souls… or Nioh on the PS4 and see how well Team Ninja did at the concept. Finally we talk a bit about Titanfall 2 and how it improves on the concept of the original.
Topics Discussed: Pax South 2017, Rime, Dauntless, Dice Throne, Wicked Apples, Mages of Mystralia, Think of the Children, Tower 57, Final Fantasy XIV, Nioh, Titanfall 2

Tonight we talk about the January AggroChat Game Club game Danganronpa. This game was Thalen's pick and we delve into what exactly we think of truth bullets and the sadistic bear. Of note like most of our Game Club shows there are massive spoilers. Also of note... we have massively mixed emotions about this title. However if you yourself are a huge fan, we would love to hear from you.
