Tonight my stalwart friends managed to make me completely fail at getting through the intro once more. The truth is I never know what Ash is going to say when I call upon him… tonight was not a thing I was expecting. The first game discussed was Spiderman for PS4 which had rolled over from a few shows. Next up the start of the MTG Arena Open Beta and the end of wipes… so that everything from this point in theory carried forward indefinitely. Kodra talks about his experiences playing Celeste and its interesting variable difficulty settings. We talk about Dragalia Lost and how it is once again taking the world by storm… as most Nintendo mobile releases seem to. Finally we talk a bit about Battle for Azeroth and why some of the systems and the grind involved with them feels bad and often times pointless.

Tonight we have another show largely made up of topics that have rolled over from previous shows when we ran out of time. We start the show with some reasonable methadone for Justice Monsters Five… in the form of a little early access Android game called Zombie Rollers. From there we talk a bit about Dragon Quest XI which leads to a discussion about Dragon Warrior and Quest titles in North America. Tam talks about his experiences with Hyperlight Drifter on the switch which leads its way to a discussion about Hollow Knight. This time said discussion is a spoiler filled dive and I highly suggest playing the game before checking out this segment. Finally at the very end we talk about Diablo 3 Season 15… the upcoming switch release, our hopes for Blizzcon and some of the rumors circulating.

Tonight we record a show that has almost nothing to do with Gorb… but you are going to get that as a name anyways because reasons. This is another one of those shows that has a bunch of topics that kept rolling over from other shows until we managed to align enough of them that sorta made sense together. Tonight we talk about MMOs an awful lot covering the life cycle of the new player experience, returning player experience and the completely and total nonsense that happens at end game with power creep.
Rough Approximation of Topics

Last week we did not have a show because half of AggroChat was at Pax West and no one really wanted to listen to Grace and I trying to do a show by ourselves. Tonight however we have the entire gang back with a bounty of games to talk about from Pax West 2018. This is a really long list and we managed to get through all of them in our normal allotted time. Be warned as we go further into the bowels of this list, the discussion points get considerably more brief. There were twenty eight games that I was able to catch… there might have been more and they may not be in the same order… but we gave it an attempt to track it all.
