Sorry there wasn’t an episode last week but we’re making up for it with a brand new episode for your earholes on a Monday morning! Give it a listen as TMan talks about his experience with Marvel’s Avengers, we blaze through the 20s in the Countdown Cauldron, and then we host the first ever PUBZ Gauntlet! What is that? Listen to the episode and find out! It’s fun, we promise!
Hello everyone! TMan had what you might call “A Week” and even “A Weekend” so he didn’t get around to editing the latest episode. However, he did think it would be easy to put together a compilation of some of his favorite moments from the first year of Make Me A Gamer! (Spoiler: it wasn’t easy, but whatever.) Long story short, next week we’ll return to your regularly scheduled episodes, but this week sit back, relax, and enjoy some of TMan’s favorite highlights from the first year of this podcast.
Do not panic. Do not adjust your sets. Welcome…to the HarveyZ Zone.
This extra “nice” episode is purely in the hands of HarveyZ and TMan is just along for the ride. Join us both as we first venture into some medical studies regarding video games! Then HarveyZ challenges TMan to a new game he created called the Tower of Babel, and we finish with answering a question that totally wasn’t the result of HarveyZ hunting someone down and making them ask it.
We hope you enjoy this reversal of our format – we both had a blast recording it!
A day late, but not a dollar short (because we make no money off of this)! Another episode of Make Me A Gamer is live and ready for a listen! In this week’s episode, TMan’s brain takes a vacation as he talks about Fall Guys and the second season of Telltale’s Batman series. We also get to two more games from the Countdown Cauldron and answer a good question from the e-mail question bucket!
We said we were back and we meant it! Another episode of Make Me A Gamer is making it to your earholes right now! No use backing out now so might as well give us a listen!
This week we get into a vehement discussion about cursing, answer a few overdue questions from our inbox about zombies and immersion, and then do a large, rapid-fire dip into the Countdown Cauldron as TMan talks about quite a few games from his top 100 list of the decade, which includes:
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).

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.
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!
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!
