Featuring: Ammosart, Ashgar, Belghast, Grace, Kodra, Tamrielo, and Thalen


This week we start off the show with some continued Path of Exile Trials of the Ancestor league discussion.  From there we talk briefly about the new Guild Wars 2 expansion.  Tam has spent some time playing Pseudoregalia and has thoughts about that, which leads into a discussion about our impressions of game generations shifting over time. Tam also spends some time playing Banished Vault and has some things to say about it.  This week Armored Core 6 launched and we talk a bit about a Giant Robot game from a developer who has become mostly known for Dark Souls.  Finally, we close things out with some more nonsense related to the Path of Exile league.


Topics Discussed:

  • Path of Exile 

    • Trials of the Ancestor League - First Week

  • Guild Wars 2 Secrets of the Obscure

    • Weaponmastery system

  • Pseudoregalia

  • How our perception of games changes over time.

  • Armored Core 6

  • Further Path of Exile League Nonsense

We have a pretty small group this week as we are down a Kodra, Ammo, and Thalen for various assorted reasons.  We start off the show with Tam talking about Viewfinder a bit which winds its way to Bel talking about the coin pusher indie Clockwork Owl. Grace has been playing a lot of XVI and we talk about the Giant Kaiju Battles that take place when two Eikons fight. Bel got into the Palia beta this week and he talks a bit about what feels like Stardew Valley the MMO. Many of us stopped playing whatever we were playing this week with the launch of Baldur’s Gate III, so we spend a bit talking about that game in largely general terms.  This leads to a discussion of JRPGs and CRPGs and how they are generally telling stories in very different ways. We close out with a few topics and Bel shares that he no longer has concerns about Path of Exile II.


Topics Discussed

  • Viewfinder

  • Clockwork Owl

  • FFXVI Giant Kaiju Battles

  • Palia Beta

  • Baldurs Gate III


  • Path of Exile II Updates
