Tonight we record the August AggroChat Game Club title… Full Throttle. This was picked by Thalen for a bunch of reasons but at least in part because we had yet to play a classic point and click adventure game. With Full Throttle being relatively recently remastered, it made it an excellent candidate since it was more or less going to run well on any system. Unfortunately one of our show members opted to try playing it on a mobile platform where the experience was less than desireable. We talk about our thoughts on Full Throttle and adventure games in general as the show goes way off the rails towards the end with many wild trips into nostalgia land.

This is another one of those nights when we thought we had nothing to talk about… but ended up having stuff to talk about. We start off the night talking some more about our recent experiences in Guild Wars 2. From there we get into some Robo Squid fun… and talk about how Gnomeregan is still horrible. From there Thalen and I talk about how West of Loathing has suddenly caused us to start playing Kingdom of Loathing again. Kodra talks about finally grasping why Tam loves Agricola so much. There is a brief offshoot conversation that leads us down the path of Magic the Gathering Commander and the game in general. We finally wrap things up with a talk that starts with painting miniatures and ventures forth into creativity in general.

Tonight we return to the normal course of our show after last weeks unintended break. We start the show off with a brief explanation of what happened then dig straight into some talk about Guild Wars 2 and the impending Path of Fire expansion. From there we talk about West of Loathing, the pseudo sequel to Kingdom of Loathing one of the longest running web games than I know of. Grace has been spending some time in the mobile world and talks about two games.. Legendary: Game of Heroes and Rabbit Evolution. Ash talks a bit about the Monster Hunter Stories demo and gameplay in general. Kodra dives into a few board games he has been playing… Macao, Potion Explosion and Scythe. From there we talk a bit about Magic the Gathering and how folks have been playing a bit of Commander. Finally we close things out with a discussion of just how well Orcs have clicked with Kodra in Warhammer 40k.
