We’ve got a somewhat special episode for this week’s Make Me A Gamer! Since last week was a four-day holiday weekend for TMan and HarveyZ, they recorded a special, slightly shorter than usual episode that focuses specifically on one game: Death Stranding! HarveyZ watched TMan play for an hour or so and then they discussed it for half an hour!
TMan had played through Episode 7 of Death Stranding and spoils gameplay (and minor story elements) throughout the episode, so if you want to know as little as possible about the game feel free to skip this episode. Otherwise, we hope you enjoy! This is a new format we’re trying out and we may do similar, shorter burst episodes focused on a single game in the future!
This weekend TMan is going to be at PAX Unplugged, which means expect another shorter, half-hour episode next week as well which will be numbered as 52-2: together they will be the length of one full episode!
Are you looking for an ear feast before Thanksgiving (if you’re American)? Well Make Me A Gamer has you covered! Enjoy a brand new episode of TMan and HarveyZ doing what they do best: talking about games and getting random facts wrong!
WARNING: The first about 9 minutes contains the spoiler for The Mandalorian that you probably already know about as well as spoilers for Game of Thrones. Skip to 8:58 to miss all the spoiler related discussion.

Hey everyone! It’s episode 50 of Make Me A Gamer coming live to your earholes! We can’t believe we’ve made it this far, and to celebrate episode 50 we’re doing a throwback episode! Yes, that’s right, this week’s episode goes old-school as we recorded it back during our summer hiatus, and we’re releasing it as our 50th episode because we totally planned it like that, and it didn’t just happen to fall on a week where HarveyZ was busy and couldn’t record. Yup! Totally planned!
So join us for a throwback episode with no HarveyZ Snaps, no Game of the Week, no fun segments. Just unfiltered, chaotic discussion where we talk about weddings, Doctor Who, favorite TV shows, Harry Potter houses and what type of gamer each house would be, D&D alignments, and more! There’s also a fun throwback to TMan & HarveyZ discussing Fire Emblem Three Houses before it took over their lives! Enjoy this blast from the past and we’ll be back with up-to-date episodes next week!
(This episode was recorded on ????? 2019. Somewhere in July, before Fire Emblem came out.)
Back on track with a Tuesday episode! (Note: We talk about Overwatch League in this episode but this was recorded before the Blizzard controversy broke. We address the Blizzard/Hong Kong news in episode 47.)
