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.)
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.
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!)
