Episode 63 – Sherb Sounds Like A Stoner

It’s been two months since the last Make Me A Gamer episode was released. A lot has happened due to COVID and it feels like time has no meaning anymore. It’s been a hard couple months for me (TMan) so I haven’t felt like editing much, but I’m slowly starting to get back in the groove of things.

This episode was recorded over two months ago when TMan & HarveyZ had both just started playing Animal Crossing. We gush a lot about our villagers and talk about our experiences as both first-time Animal Crossing players. We also talk about #75 on TMan’s top 100 games of the decade, go over some news that is now several months old (like the Last of Us 2 delay, how relevant is that now!), and talk about the “new” character in Slay the Spire (that is also now not quite as new).

We’re still committed to giving you the content we recorded before the coronavirus depression took over, and I’ve got two more episodes to edit and hopefully release sooner than later before we start recording new material. I hope you stick with us, and we’ll come back stronger than ever here at Make Me A Gamer.

Also, this is releasing on my (TMan’s) birthday so happy birthday to me! Thank you all for listening, and I hope you are all doing well.

Episode 62 – Any Given Overwatch Day

So obviously everything has been a little bit chaotic due to the state of the world. This episode was supposed to come out over a month ago but due to life it’s just coming out now. We hope you enjoy this throwback episode to a month ago when the coronavirus was not quite a global pandemic yet as TMan and HarveyZ talk Overwatch League and PAX East (and a little bit of Final Fantasy 7).

Episode 61 – Are You Wearing Pants?

We’ve put sixty episodes of Make Me A Gamer in the can (and some bonus ones!) , but there’s always something new happening here at podcast central! For Episode 61, for the first time ever, TMan and HarveyZ recorded an episode over the internet! That’s right, we’re respecting social distancing here at Make Me A Gamer. Please excuse some audio hiccups and quality issues as this is our first time not recording in the same room. We also kind of broke format and just generally discussed games this week, but hopefully it’ll prove enlightening and maybe entertaining to all y’all out there who may not be getting out much! Enjoy!

Top 100 Games of the ’10s: #100-91

So if you haven’t been listening to the Make Me A Gamer podcast, you’ve been missing out on the fact that I’ve composed my top 100 games of the decade list – from 2010-2019. I’ve been doling out a few numbers here and there as part of our Countdown Cauldron segment and while I won’t be going over every number in the podcast, I did promise to write up companion pieces that outline all the games.

In the podcast we’re working through sets of 10. We started with 100-91 and in the most recent episode moved to the 81-90 set, which means now it’s time for me to release the first group of ten. I tried writing up my Top 100 games of All-Time a few years back and ended up burning out in the 60s, so I’m going to try and keep the descriptions a little more brief so I don’t fall into the same trap. I will note the ones that were discussed on the podcast (and link to the related episode) and keep those even briefer.

Without further ado, #100-#91 of my personal favorite games of the 2010s.

Episode 59 – You Don’t Deserve Me At My Grookey

Ok, it’s been nearly a month since a Make Me A Gamer episode went up, but man what a crazy month it’s been. OWL Homestands, PAX East, LASIK surgery, hot water heaters dying – and that’s mostly just TMan’s schedule. BUT we’re back with a new episode that I hope you all enjoy, and sorry for the delay! A regular schedule should be resuming soon-ish!

Post PAX Game Impressions

Last year I was only able to go to PAX East for two days out of the four so I wrote up each day separately. This year I was able to go all four days and used that time to go to panels, games, and meetups.

I may write about the panels and meet-ups in another post, but this one will exclusively be about the games I played. I got to 18 different games over the 4 day weekend. Is that a lot? I don’t really have a perspective, as I also watched about a dozen other ones without actually having any hands-on. I’ll try not to wax poetic too hard on each and every game as I don’t want this to take forever, but without further ado here’s all the games I played at PAX East this year!

Episode 58 – Jig News

Sorry for the delay! Life comes at you fast, and in TMan’s case it was so fast he had trouble finding time to edit the podcast! In addition, somehow during this particular episode TMan’s mic managed to pick up a radio station so editing was a little rougher. I think the background audio was scrubbed well enough that it should have come out okay, but if there’s something off about this week’s episode, that’s why! Apologies for making you wait, but let’s get on with this episode’s Make Me A Gamer entertainment!
