Gamer Heroes Play: Super Bomberman

Gamer Heroes makes the move from podcast to streaming as Jon and I play some Super Bomberman on the old SNES. That’s right, we start back in 1993 with a classic Super Nintendo game featuring the likes of the White, Black, Red, and Blue Bomber… people.

Check out the video below and subscribe to us on YouTube and Twitch to catch our latest video game streams. We’ve got some other fun SNES streams coming soon including the Aerosmith game, Revolution X, Top Gear 3000, and Super Street Fighter II!

(We know there’s some audio level issues with the commentary but we’ll get that fixed in upcoming streams. We’re sorry for any inconvenience.)

So what did you think? Are Jon and I just the best Bomberman players you’ve ever watched? No? Yeah, didn’t think so.

Let us know which games you’d like to see us stream. We’ll be playing more SNES plus adding games from other Nintendo platforms like the N64 and Switch and even other modern titles from Xbox and Playstation. Stay tuned!

GH01: Begin Level 1

SH S2E11: Star Trek Mission New York

This week, we have a very special episode recorded live at Star Trek: Mission New York! This convention was in celebration of the Star Trek franchise’s 50th anniversary, which is officially Thursday, September 8th. We were lucky enough to attend and interview three fantastic people! First up, we have Kelli Fitzpatrick and Derek Attico. These two were both selected as part of the 10 whose personal Star Trek short stories were chosen for official publication in this year’s Strange New Worlds novel. This book series was annual from 1998 through 2007 but has now returned after its announcement last October with winners selected this past April. I was able to take some of Kelli and Derek’s time this weekend to talk about the experience and their process. Next, we were lucky enough to get some time with Al River, a Lead Designer for Star Trek Online, specifically focusing on the console launch of the game that hit PC over six years ago. The console launch happened yesterday, September 6th and is free-to-play on Xbox One and PS4. We go in-depth on the process of bringing the longtime PC game to consoles, details on UI changes, and more.

Want to join the conversation? Join us live every Tuesday night at 8PM CST on Twitch to chat with us! We’ll answer questions and note comments live on the broadcast! Follow at: twitch.tv\griddaily
