We’re back for Episode 101!  We talk about the hype leading up to World of Warcraft Classic, the Solstice of Heroes event in Destiny 2, and what games we’re looking forward to over the next year or so! Gamescom 2019 and Nintendo Indie World announcements, too!  Shout-out to the urination mechanic in Death Stranding, I guess?

Sweet T and Double K

When Kam can’t think of a title, he defaults to a dumb joke that was said during an episode. This is one of those times. Sorry.

This week, your heroes talk about Apex Legends season 2, Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled, Slay the Spire, and a few cool games that Kam got to check out on the show floor of RTX 2019!

E3 2019 Prediction Show!

Thomas and Kam use their COOL NEW MICROPHONES to give their predictions that NOBODY ASKED FOR.

We also spend WAY TOO LONG talking about Death Stranding’s 2019 release date, at least 100 new Celeste levels, Watch Dogs 3 getting leaked, and Cuphead coming to the Tesla???  So much is happening because E3 week CANNOT BE CONTAINED.

E3 2019 Prediction Show!

Puzzling Bonds

Apologies for the audio quality issues!  They’ll be fixed next week, we promise.  🙂

Also light spoiler warning for Undertale in the first half of the episode.  Just FYI.

This week, Thomas played Undertale on a livestream with no commentary! Kam is hopelessly addicted to manual labor and social interaction in Stardew Valley!  An eternal friendship is forged through an unlikely source: Tetris Plus. We also take some time to talk Super Mario Maker 2, and Sony and Microsoft playing friendly!  We recorded this podcast in the pouring rain and thunder because we’re CRAZY!

Challenge Mode #2 – Effort vs. Reward

Welcome to episode two of Challenge Mode!  It’s a series where we revisit video games, the culture surrounding them, and the people who play them!  Fun fact!  We recorded this before we had a name for the show!  We’re professionals!

In this episode we discuss our personal feelings on effort vs. reward in gaming, and provide some examples of what we feel works well and doesn’t! New episodes of Challenge Mode will go up every two weeks right here in the Gamer Heroes podcast feed, so keep it here for more Challenge Mode!  Enjoy, friends!

Overwhelmingly Cool

This week, we dive into Kam’s thoughts on OVERWHELM, the current discourse on accessibility vs. difficulty, and how we’d like to see Borderlands 3 adapt to fit more into the modern games atmosphere.  Also we still find a way to squeeze Apex Legends into there somewhere.

Thomas and Kam are joined this week by their friend Liang to discuss the news of the week!  Enjoy truly riveting conversation on the new Pokemon games, the nature and legitimacy of eSports, and a look at their most anticipated games of 2019! Why is the title of this episode a very small, very dumb joke Kam made in this episode?  Because he wrote this copy and thinks it’s funnier than it actually is.  Enjoy!
