This week we totally lied to our listeners because for various reasons we chose not to record the subnautica game of the month show. There was a significant patch in that game this week and we wanted to give time to experience the changes. Also we had a lot of things we wanted to talk about with Stormblood since we have now played a significant amount of it, with at least one of us having hit the level cap. We also talk about The Secret World legends and their “launch” this past Friday. We wrap things up with a discussion of Warhammer 40,000 and the redesign of the ruleset, in which Tam actually has some good things to say about it. We also get into a lengthy discussion of 40k things that have disappeared… like Zoats and Squats.

This week we talk about our early experiences with the Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood head start and the numerous technical difficulties. We talk about our feelings regarding the Red Mage and Samurai so far. We also delve into the E3 2017 conferences: Microsoft, Devolver Digital, Bethesda, Sony, Nintendo and UbiSoft. We highlight a whole bunch of games, too many to list in a blurb. Of these one of the more important ones was the discussion around Beyond Good and Evil 2 and how Ubisoft had claimed they would not be showing it. Finally Ashgar talks about his experiences playing Disgaea 5 on the Nintendo Switch.

This week ushers in the return of Tam who has been in world traveller mode. We begin the show with talk about the madness that is the RoboSquid Armada… or our attempt to bring back the challenge to low level World of Warcraft by restricting ourselves to green gear and attempting dungeons at the minimum level. From there we delve into a discussion of the Electronic Arts E3 press conference and how they are bringing roleplaying to sports games. Also discuss the forced two player prison escape experience of A Way Out, and the huge tease that was the Anthem “reveal”. Since Tam has been on the road he has been playing a lot of Fire Emblem so we delve into a length discussion about that franchise specifically. Finally Ashgar and Kodra have been playing Hollow Knight so we do a bit of a dive into why they feel it is the best metroidvania out there.

This week we once again have Grace as a medical issue has kept her away a few weeks. Tonight we have a relatively short show, at least as far as AggroChat shows go. Thalen has reached the point where he is doing The Taken King and talks about the shock that happened when suddenly Cayde-6 developed a personality… and is in fact Robot Mal. We get on a tagent talking about the changings coming soon in Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood, and our thoughts about what might be tweaked during the expansion. Grace and Bel talk a bit about their recent alt madness in World of Warcraft, and specifically how Bel has leveled and geared a character in a single week. Kodra talks a bit about Elder Scrolls Legends and why he likes it much better than Hearthstone. Finally we talk a little bit about the recent phone game craze that is Magikarp Jump.
