Tom + Mat Attack 077 – Mechanical Dragon


tma Striking while the iron’s hot, the boys discuss the Mega CD… Yup, it’s one of those episodes! Mat’s been knee deep in Gameboy action, getting confused by the apparent love for Adventure island and learning all about German children’s characters through isometric platoformers Die Maus & Ottofant. Tom meanwhile has been playing the classic Super Mario Galaxy, Shovel Knight and even a little bit of DMG himself. He did not however, think to ask the important question – Does that game contain Mechanical Dragons? What a disappointment!

Listen here.

Through The Dark Portal... Again!


It's hard to believe its been almost 10 years since we first stepped foot into Azeroth, but tonight marks the launch of the latest World of Warcraft expansion - Warlords of Draenor! With a raised level cap of 100, new dungeons and raids, garrisons and an intact Draenor to explore it's no exaggeration that some of the Blast Process team are rather excited!

We'll let you know our thoughts on the expansion once we have managed to sink our teeth into it, and I'm sure we will have many tales to share of our adventures in Draenor!

Warlords launches at 11pm tonight - and as you can see from the image above The Dark Portal is once again a hive of activity...

...See you on the other side...

New Blizzard Game!! Overwatch - Beta out 2015

Blizzard have announced their first new IP in 17 years - Overwatch!!! From the trailer looks to be a pixar styled team based multiplayer shooter - and if the game is anything like the trailer it should be awesome!

Blizzard showed some gameplay in a number of themed arenas Egyptian, Japanese and Victorian London - the game has a cartoony style and looks to play like Team Fortress, but with some awesome features like teleportation, wall climbing and close combat, alongside more traditional elements such as crafting turrets.

Overwatch is due to have a beta in 2015! More as we hear it!!


Agenda The future

Schedules. Need to plan again

A call between us all. Do a call again to discuss to communicate things to do with blast process

Tom and Matt attacks podcast more vids Tom and Matt attempt Danish deal of the week

T&M are going to try and record a pre show podcast video, detailing whats coming up on there next show. Video will be uploaded to Blast Process YouTube. Some other kind of video that the lego duo can film and upload to BPro

More vids from Tom and Matt go on blast process YouTube

Ask Matt? Do a mini version of Tom and Matt.....mini trailer? Two min video of what content you'll have...upload to blast process. Agreed?!

News posted on the site? Retro and now do video game related...contacting and supporting independent developers

The site needs more updates, yes were not a 'news' site but we always find some related news piece interesting, so why not post about it? Press releases help us gain review copies! Post about Kickstarter games! Showing willingness and past articles is another great way of gaining, you know, free games!

Don't just put on YouTube Twitter etc...post it three times a day on Twitter.

Going forward we must post all our content three times a day on twitter (use hootsuite for this) and spread it out over the day. Videos, reviews and all other exclusive content should be carried on to be posted for a few days. This will help us reach a wider audience.

Review more games and share it more than once.

Tweet the review is coming...tweet that video is coming and tweet that people are viewing it

Destiny Review incoming! Destiny Review is live! see it here. Missed our Destiny Review? Catch up here. Simples.

Website news also as industry news.

Open up to other things. Will Microsoft's Xboxone Kinect sell on it's own over Christmas? Sony release share 2.0 but can your internet handle it?

Scheduled tweets etc

Spread the tweets out!

Everyone needs some encouragement to do more content? Everyone is busy at the moment but maybe need to encourage people more

Arrange a meeting at Google hangout etc?

Skype, Google Hangout or something that works... This could help us with the direction on the site and thoughts that people may have.

The ideas...need compromise be realistic about what we can create for content on the site

Get into the anniversaries for things like '25th anniversary of seta' etc it's the anniversary of this post onto fab and Twitter etc

Engaging with community on social networks

Watch Youtube videos? Do a quick comment, say anything! Get's our name out there and people will click the name and see our videos!

Watch other people's youtube vids etc and comment etc

Have someone doing social networking...or accumilation of everyone

Tom's Game Room


GAMES_ROOM Game Room videos. If there's anything a self respecting video game website should have then it's videos of the site's bloggers showing their wares. So here we are, my Games Room circa 2012...I think.

As you may have guessed there's a little story as to why this video's taken so long to appear on the site. Firstly, it was technically never finished as part 3 was never fully edited and secondly the screen ratio of the video got squashed somehow.

Regardless of these problems I felt what we did manage to film was worth salvaging, so here it is, a lost relic from the  Blast Process archives...
