Episode 29 – A Roguelike For Your Ears

After some schedule pinball, Make Me A Gamer is back on Tuesdays! We start off this episode with a rare, completely unedited audio intro just as a quick look to see what Make Me A Gamer sounds like behind the scenes pre-editing. Then TMan gets into his adventures at PAX East, talking about video games like Sparklite and Creature in the Well, and board games such as Shifting Squares and Visitor. HarveyZ talks about his experience QA testing a board game, and then they both discuss the upcoming Genesis Mini and finally getting to play the new Toejam & Earl game! We hope you enjoy!

Bonus Episode – MCU Bracket Madness (AKA Dogs Poop Outside)

Welcome to another bonus episode of Make Me A Gamer! This was originally scheduled to go up last week while TMan was taking a break after PAX East, but instead you get it this week! This week’s regular scheduled episode will be coming as well!

For this bonus episode, as a follow-up to Episode 28’s Movie Franchise March Madness, TMan made a bracket of all the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, excluding the two Ant-Mans since HarveyZ hasn’t seen them. HarveyZ goes through each match-up and crowns the best movie of the MCU, and TMan throws his opinions into the mix as well. No video games on this bonus, but a whole lot of movie talk! We hope you enjoy this slight tangent! (This episode was recorded March 21, 2019.)

PAX East 2019: Sunday Round-Up

And now here’s my round-up for Sunday! I was unfortunately unable to get a ticket to the floor on Saturday, however I did get to go to the What’s Good Games Podcast meetup which was absolutely amazing. The women from the podcast are as genuine in person as they are on the podcast, and the community is welcoming and very friendly.

But enough about how awesome What’s Good Games is. Let’s talk about PAX East and video games!

PAX EAST!!

Hey everyone! There weren’t any reviews or blog posts this week because I’m kinda preparing for travel to Boston because I’m going to be attending PAX East this year! Hooray! I’ll hopefully have some fun things to talk and blog about while in attendance, if not next week I will have plenty to discuss and publish! Have a great week!

Episode 28 – Crusaders of the Lost Grail (Movie Franchise March Madness)

On this week’s episode of Make Me A Gamer, TMan continues talking about Battletech as it’s his current favorite game. Meanwhile, HarveyZ has been playing more XCOM 2: War of the Chosen and wonders if his style of play says something about him as a gamer and a person. Then they both discuss their feelings on the Phoenix Point/Epic Games Store controversy of recent weeks before diving headfirst into a movie franchise March Madness bracket that unearths some surprising opinions on movie franchises for the both of them! We hope you enjoy! (This episode was recorded March 14th, 2019.)

Music Theory #12 – A Day To Remember

New week, new music! Let’s go!

Artist: A Day To Remember

Latest Album: Bad Vibrations (2016)

Genre: Metalcore/Pop-punk

Favorite Track: Best of Me (see above)

Other Recommended Tracks: I’m Made of Wax Larry What Are You Made Of?, All Signs Point To Lauderdale, Right Back At It Again, Sometimes You’re The Hammer Sometimes You’re The Nail, Leave All The Lights On, Paranoia, Naivety

Why I Enjoy Them: My first exposure to A Day To Remember was when I went to a Rise Against concert and they were the second band of the line-up. I was impressed by their live performance and ended up checking out Common Courtesy (their most recent album at the time). After coincidentally ending up seeing them live a second time (opening for Blink-182 this time) and buying their latest album Bad Vibrations, I became a big fan of their music. You have to like both screaming and the pop-punk style of the 2000s to really enjoy all their music, but it fits right into my wheelhouse and I recommend their stuff if you’re looking for something a little different.
