It’s another week which means another episode of Make Me A Gamer! TMan and HarveyZ hit every type of game under the sun in this one! First they talk about H.Bomberguy’s charity stream then they get into some sportsball talk, followed by a discussion about a sportsball-ish game they’ve been playing. Then they shift gears and talk about Civilization V and VI and try to talk about a new board game they played called Scythe, but end up talking about Magic: The Gathering instead. Video, board, card, and sports games are all covered in this episode so if you like games, there’s something here for everybody! Enjoy! (This episode was recorded January 22, 2019.)
Kingdom Hearts 3 comes out tomorrow and it will become the primary focus of my gaming free time for the foreseeable future. Which means R.I.P. to any games I was trying to finish before then. There’s quite a few games I’ve started and put several hours of time into but I haven’t completed. Is there a chance I’ll eventually finish them? Sure. But I haven’t done a full review in a while so I thought I’d combine the games I’ve played but not completed within the last month or so into one big review.
The games in question offer a wide variety of genres – I’ll be talking about The Witcher 3 (about 8-10 hours of play on PS4), Sid Meier’s Civilization 6 (about 10 hours of play on the Switch), Darksiders 3 (about 10 hours of play on PS4) and Valkyria Chronicles 4 (about 20 hours of play on the Switch). An Action RPG, Strategy, Action, and Strategy RPG. Got just about all my bases covered.
I’m going to try and take a slightly different format with this review as I’ll talk about my experiences overall with them – what I enjoyed about them and why I found myself not finishing them or eager to return to them. Most of the reviews I posted last year were games that I really enjoyed and wanted to gush over, while games that I only played for a little bit and didn’t like I ended up not talking about that much. I also fell away from my mini-reviews of what I’d played each month after I got busy during the holiday season – I’ll likely be returning to them in February but I’m not going to bother with January because this mostly covers everything I played (except for one other game which I will also make a review for and will talk about later this week).
Okay, with all that out of the way, let’s talk about games.
This week on Make Me A Gamer TMan & HarveyZ go on a wild ride of gaming tangents. We talk about the leaked Harry Potter RPG footage and somehow end up on the topic of how the world of wrestling and fighting games intersect. We also talk about Civilization 6 and Diablo 3 coming to the Switch, along with our views on gaming collectibles and collecting art in general. (This episode was recorded October 6th.)
