This is the last episode recorded at the beginning of quarantine season! After much delayed editing due to *gestures at the world* we’re finally caught up and the next episode you hear will be timely and not recorded several months ago!

Episode 64 – I Like Having Numbers Become Bigger Numbers (Civilization 6 Deep Dive ft. Slim & Professor Q)

Hey! It’s slow going but we’re getting closer and closer to a regular weekly schedule again! Here’s another episode from the backlog that we recorded a while back. This is a special episode because not one, but TWO special guests are joining TMan & HarveyZ for a deep dive into Civilization 6 (as well as the Civilization series). Friends of the podcast Slim (previously seen) and Professor Q (in his podcast debut!) share their thoughts and opinions on Civilization 6 as all four of us have recently been playing it.

Then at the end we have a special Trivia-Off where HarveyZ tries to prove he’s been made a gamer as he goes up against Slim and Professor Q! Enjoy!

(This episode was recorded sometime in April 2020.)

Top 100 Games of the ’10s: #100-91

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.

Episode 59 – You Don’t Deserve Me At My Grookey

Ok, it’s been nearly a month since a Make Me A Gamer episode went up, but man what a crazy month it’s been. OWL Homestands, PAX East, LASIK surgery, hot water heaters dying – and that’s mostly just TMan’s schedule. BUT we’re back with a new episode that I hope you all enjoy, and sorry for the delay! A regular schedule should be resuming soon-ish!

Post PAX Game Impressions

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!

Episode 58 – Jig News

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!
