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! (This episode was recorded on April 4, 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!
On this week’s episode of Make Me A Gamer, TMan continues talking about Battletech as it’s his current favorite game. Meanwhile, HarveyZ has been playing more XCOM 2: War of the Chosen and wonders if his style of play says something about him as a gamer and a person. Then they both discuss their feelings on the Phoenix Point/Epic Games Store controversy of recent weeks before diving headfirst into a movie franchise March Madness bracket that unearths some surprising opinions on movie franchises for the both of them! We hope you enjoy! (This episode was recorded March 14th, 2019.)
This week on Make Me A Gamer, TMan and HarveyZ have a debate on the merits of mustard and mayo before discussing the leaked Sonic the Hedgehog design from the upcoming live-action movie. This leads into a discussion on video game movies and other movies in general that they both enjoy. TMan ends the episode by talking a little bit about Battletech, the latest game he’s been having a lot of fun with. (This episode was recorded March 7th, 2019.)
*NOTE: Due to a technical oversight, the last part of this episode was cut off and so it ends kind of abruptly. Thankfully, not much was lost except for the usual outro so please check out our links below to find us other places on the internet!
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.)
I’ve been of two minds about finally doing a KH3 review. I finished the main story a few weeks ago and had mixed feelings about it. As time passed, my feelings ebbed and flowed like a river of Heartless. Sometimes reflection is needed after a game before final opinions come into focus.
So now I think I’m comfortable with my final thoughts on the game. I already talked about how I was disappointed with how the Disney worlds played out in an earlier post, so I’m not gonna harp too much on those themes again (but they will probably still come up). I’ll also try to avoid any specific story spoilers, but there will be general spoilers of what happens all the way up to the endgame.
Welcome to another episode of Make Me A Gamer! It just so happened that when we recorded this, it was at the exact same time that the Washington Justice were playing the London Spitfire in Overwatch League. Since TMan and HarveyZ are both fans of the Justice, they ended up multitasking and talking about Overwatch League and Overwatch in general for basically the entire episode while watching the game! TMan goes into detail explaining some of the finer points of strategy and new & old Overwatch metas to HarveyZ. This was a bit of an experiment, but we hope it turned out fun, entertaining, and informative! We hope you enjoy! (This episode was recorded February 21st, 2019.)
