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! (This episode was recorded on April 4, 2019.)
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.)
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.)
This week on Make Me A Gamer, TMan and HarveyZ have a debate on the merits of mustard and mayo before discussing the leaked Sonic the Hedgehog design from the upcoming live-action movie. This leads into a discussion on video game movies and other movies in general that they both enjoy. TMan ends the episode by talking a little bit about Battletech, the latest game he’s been having a lot of fun with. (This episode was recorded March 7th, 2019.)
*NOTE: Due to a technical oversight, the last part of this episode was cut off and so it ends kind of abruptly. Thankfully, not much was lost except for the usual outro so please check out our links below to find us other places on the internet!
Sorry for the day delay, but here’s this week’s promised episode of Make Me A Gamer! There’s a lot of news to cover in this edition, so TMan and HarveyZ discuss Reggie Fils-Aime’s retirement, the new starter Pokemon, the new Overwatch hero, and THQ Nordic’s weird and ill-advised AMA. Then to top it all off, they get back to their roots and share XCOM 2 stories and TMan gushes about his new obsession: Battletech! We hope you enjoy! (This episode was recorded February 28th, 2019.)
Welcome to another episode of Make Me A Gamer! It just so happened that when we recorded this, it was at the exact same time that the Washington Justice were playing the London Spitfire in Overwatch League. Since TMan and HarveyZ are both fans of the Justice, they ended up multitasking and talking about Overwatch League and Overwatch in general for basically the entire episode while watching the game! TMan goes into detail explaining some of the finer points of strategy and new & old Overwatch metas to HarveyZ. This was a bit of an experiment, but we hope it turned out fun, entertaining, and informative! We hope you enjoy! (This episode was recorded February 21st, 2019.)
It’s a new week and a new episode of Make Me A Gamer! On this week’s episode, HarveyZ has finally had time for games so after a long hiatus, we’re talking about XCOM 2 once again! After that we end up talking about the surprising new hit game Apex Legends, as well as a long discussion about the battle royale genre in general and what it takes to be a Twitch streamer. We hope you enjoy! (This episode was recorded February 12th, 2019.)
