This Week On Make Me A Gamer
Harvey Z Snaps: Pens vs. Pencils
Main Course #1: E-mail Questions from Overbob & The Google Stadia Launch
On this week’s episode of Make Me A Gamer, TMan forces HarveyZ to choose between jorts and Crocs as this week’s Snap. Then HarveyZ details what his perfect game would be like (and it’s not what you’d expect!) before TMan dives into the news of the week. This includes Google’s announcement of Stadia specs, the possibility of Overwatch 2, newly announced Pokemon (Wooloo!), and Darksiders Genesis. Then TMan ends by heaping effusive praise on a lesser-known NES game: Rockin’ Kats! We hope you enjoy! (This episode was recorded June 6th, 2019.)
We’re back with another wonderful episode of Make Me A Gamer, and not to toot our own horn but it’s one of our best (and weirdest) yet! First, the script is flipped as Harvey Z gives TMan some brutal choices on what to snap out of existence instead of the other way around. Then we answer an e-mail that lets us talk about some of our favorite video game music as well as our “coffee break” games. Finally, HarveyZ fulfills his assignment from last week and breaks down his very complicated personal Pokemon Gym design. It’s a blast, and we hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording! (This episode was recorded May 23, 2019.)
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.)
So I missed my top 5 last week, and I’ll definitely make it up at some point. But that point is not today. I will, however, not be missing this week’s top 5! In honor of Pokemon Sword/Shield being announced and the three new starters coming out, I’ve decided to list out my top five favorite Pokemon out of all the starters. (This is only including the mainline games that follow the fire-water-grass starter system, and not games like Pokemon Let’s Go!)
On this episode of Make Me A Gamer, TMan and HarveyZ get their hands dirty to discuss a lot of gaming news. They talk about Super Smash Bros Ultimate and the policemen who settled it in Smash, the Playstation Classic and the ethics of emulators, and Fallout 76’s many controversies and failures. They also compare Pokemon teams (TMan’s from Let’s Go and HarveyZ from way back in Red/Blue) and finish up with The Game Awards and the Persona series. (This episode was recorded December 11th, 2018.)
This week on Make Me A Gamer, there’s a lot of news for TMan to catch HarveyZ up on. There’s updates on Pokemon, the Rockstar 100 hour work week controversy, as well as new info on the Overwatch League and a brand new Overwatch character! We also discuss the latest Super Smash Bros Ultimate information, the Diablo Immortal drama that’s been circulating the internet, and a little bit about the Fallout 76 beta bugs. HarveyZ does get a chance to update everyone on his XCOM 2: War of the Chosen adventures at the end, though! (This episode was recorded November 5th.)
