We’re back from vacation! I know you missed us last week, so here’s a brand new episode for the first Tuesday of May! A mundane yet philosophical HarveyZ Snaps question turns into nearly a full episode of TMan and HarveyZ reminiscing about their early days on the internet back in the late 90s and early 00s. They discuss AOL chat rooms, online message board games, and more! They also briefly touch on Days Gone “controversy” and Dragon’s Dogma towards the end. We hope you enjoy!

I wanted to write a real quick status update for the blog here since it’s been relatively silent. I had a very weird April, starting off with coming back from PAX East and then ending on a week-long vacation where I wasn’t really in a position to concentrate on updating much.
I’ve also been having slightly more inspiration on the fictional creativity side of my writing and have been trying to explore that a little more. I’m currently trying to find the right balance of my novel/short story writing as well as my blog writing in addition to my podcast episodes. On top of that, I’m still looking to find the time for playing the games and consuming the content that gives me the inspiration for blogs and such.
Part of writing blogs and reviews is also remembering to have some fun and do things that aren’t tied immediately to content. April was up and down in terms of stress for me, so I ended up taking a lot of time to myself and not trying to push out content every day as I was close to burning myself out.
I’m hoping to get back to a regular schedule soon, but the next two months are going to be slightly crazy for me in terms of obligations and other life stuff that’s happening. Podcasts will still be happening on Tuesdays but the blog posts may be coming haphazardly for a few more weeks until I get a firm schedule down. The first thing on my agenda will be a review of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice which should be coming later this week, and then we’ll see!
Thanks for reading and I hope to be back to regularly scheduled content soon!
It’s here! Episode 30 of Make Me A Gamer has arrived! TMan and HarveyZ start off the episode diving into a bit of HarveyZ’s music taste before answering from the question bucket for the very first time! Then they discuss the Playstation 5 specs that were released as well as the XBox One SAD Edition. They also discuss the newly announced Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order game from EA and the game selection for the upcoming Genesis Mini. Enjoy! (This episode was recorded April 18, 2019.)
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!

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.)
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!
