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.)

Episode 25 – Even The Pros Stupid (An Overwatch League Episode)

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.)

Episode 22 – Hide The Sausage

It’s already February, but Make Me A Gamer is still truckin’ along! On this week’s episode TMan and HarveyZ talk about the new Smash Bros Ultimate and also relive their glory days of playing Smash Bros Melee. Then they finally, actually, talk about Scythe the board game before getting into the news of Metro Exodus becoming a timed exclusive on the Epic Games store. Then they end the episode with their usual brand of off-topic insanity. Enjoy! (This episode was recorded January 31st, 2019.)

Episode 20 – The “Stick It To The Man” Episode

We’ve made it to a full twenty episodes of Make Me A Gamer! To celebrate, this week TMan and HarveyZ are sticking it to the corporate overlords of gaming! First they gush over the new Spider-Man trailer and Into The Spider-Verse, but then they get into discussion about the Gearbox CEO’s problems with porn, Activision and Bungie’s split and why TMan hates Activision’s CEO, and how Ubisoft’s management bungled their inclusive message with the latest DLC for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Enjoy! (This episode was recorded January 15th, 2019.)

The 2018 Manatees! (And One TKO)

What’s this? Two episodes of Make Me A Gamer in one week? It must be a Christmas miracle! TMan and HarveyZ got together to record a shorter, bonus episode (although it didn’t end up nearly as short as intended) to talk about their favorite games from 2018. HarveyZ talks about the one game he played that was released in 2018, and then TMan gives out the first ever Manatee awards for his games of the year! We hope you enjoy, and we’ll see you all in the new year! (This episode was recorded December 18th, 2018.)
