Episode 36 – Jort Party

On this week’s episode of Make Me A Gamer, TMan forces HarveyZ to choose between jorts and Crocs as this week’s Snap. Then HarveyZ details what his perfect game would be like (and it’s not what you’d expect!) before TMan dives into the news of the week. This includes Google’s announcement of Stadia specs, the possibility of Overwatch 2, newly announced Pokemon (Wooloo!), and Darksiders Genesis. Then TMan ends by heaping effusive praise on a lesser-known NES game: Rockin’ Kats! We hope you enjoy! (This episode was recorded June 6th, 2019.)

Episode 35 – Fortspite

Thirty-five whole episodes of Make Me A Gamer are in the bag! On this particular one, T-Man makes HarveyZ choose between Fortnite and fidget spinners, we delve into Dungeons & Dragons thanks to an e-mail question, and then we talk about some hot gaming news like the new Death Stranding trailer and this random new handheld with a crank called the Playdate. Then we finish the episode with a new segment where TMan just talks about a game he likes: this week, it’s Alpha Protocol! Enjoy! (This episode was recorded May 30th, 2019.)

Episode 34 – House of the Rising Tung

We’re back with another wonderful episode of Make Me A Gamer, and not to toot our own horn but it’s one of our best (and weirdest) yet! First, the script is flipped as Harvey Z gives TMan some brutal choices on what to snap out of existence instead of the other way around. Then we answer an e-mail that lets us talk about some of our favorite video game music as well as our “coffee break” games. Finally, HarveyZ fulfills his assignment from last week and breaks down his very complicated personal Pokemon Gym design. It’s a blast, and we hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording! (This episode was recorded May 23, 2019.)

Episode 32 – Give Me What I Want!

We’re back with a new episode of Make Me A Gamer! Sorry for the day delay, but it’s a good episode worth the wait! We start off with HarveyZ’s most difficult snap yet before answering our first ever e-mail from the Make Me A Gamer inbox! Then we have a spoiler-filled discussion about our thoughts on Avengers: Endgame (from 20:00 – 48:05 for those who haven’t seen it yet and want to skip spoilers)! We wrap up the episode by talking about last week’s State of Play from Sony, Mortal Kombat 11, and our adventures as a farmer in Stardew Valley! Enjoy! (This episode was recorded May 9th, 2019.)

Plot of Thrones: Stumbling At The Finish

I didn’t watch Game of Thrones until the eighth season. I’m watching this final season because my girlfriend is semi-invested in the finale and wanted a companion to watch with. “But why would you spoil yourself?” C’mon son. The internet has spoiled me on every major event and most characters, so I know all the big plot points and characters already.

I know about all the weddings. Red Wedding, Purple Wedding, White Wedding (hey little sister). I know what happens when Oberyn and The Mountain face off. I know Tyrion drinks and knows things. I know Jon Snow doesn’t know anything.

So I’m not coming into this final season completely blind. And after watching the penultimate episode and witnessing the fan aftermath on the internet, I have some thought about this season both from a writing perspective and from a perspective of observing fans of the show for seven seasons without watching the show.

(Spoilers for everything Game of Thrones up until the episode that aired yesterday will follow, along with minor spoilers for some other shows.)
