Tom + Mat Attack

TMA 197 – Better than Strictly!

tma.jpg

On yet another TMA, the boys discuss more than the latest episode of strictly and haiku’s! Tom’s been playing some Tetris (and quilting), but also finding Yakuza Kawami to be less than what was promised in terms of Shenmue succession. Mat’s been playing some Donut County and forcing things into holes… Beyond that, the boys debate the length of games, discuss some of their favourite retro retailers and have a good old natter about originality in games!

Listen here.

TMA 196 – Walking Normal

tma.jpg

On this week’s TMA, the boys finally hash out a debate 2 years in the making! Shenmue Vs. Yakuza! We talk about what we love in the games, what we hope will be their futures and the merits of English Vs. Japanese voice acting!

Besides that, Mat’s been to Paris video game hunting and Tom’s been busy thinking of a Haiku to describe his feelings on Sonic 2 for the Master System! Yup, it’s quite a podcast!

Listen here.

TMA 191 – A Little Delayed!

tma.jpg

On last month ago’s TMA, Mat promises to upload the podcast before he goes off on his stag do and forgets! Listen to this time capsule of a podcast, where Mat discusses Yakuza 6’s impending release, a trip to Copenhagen over a month old and many more blasts from the past! Tom picked up games you’ve no doubt seen on a Parry Pick Ups and played some games besides it! Ohhh, it’s a mystery!

TMA 189 – You had me at ‘Akuma’

tma.jpg

On yet another TMA, the boys get down to what you’ve all been waiting for, Yakuza 6 Demo talk! We go a little further by recommending our favourite Beat Takeshi movies, Tom trying to remember the plot based off of Mat’s endless rambling about the series and a lot more besides! Tom’s also found himself in the loving arms of The Witcher 3, Tomb Raider and Assault Gunners HD. Mat on the other hand has yet again been cheating the ‘no new games’ rule, as well as playing the Kirby Star Allies demo! It’s a lot to get on with, so let’s get on with it!

TMA 187 – Time to get Direct!

tma.jpg

On yet another TMA, the boys dive straight into the recent Nintendo direct as alas, Mat has played 0 games this week! He’s not bought any either! Besides this shocking revelation, Tom’s been picking up a new SNES to enable his dirty Tetris Attack addiction, as well as playing some Tank!Tank!Tank! on the Wii U. Remember that thing? You know, the console all the Switch games came from…

TMA 186 – CEXy Packaging

tma.jpg

On this week’s TMA, Mat has been battling the flu and the urge to stop playing HAL Lab’s excellent new Part Time UFO. Tom on the other hand has been playing a little of Dragon Age 2, Kirby Star Allies and missing free copies of Yakuza 6. Besides that, the boys get on their soap boxes about photocopied covers and ‘GOTY’ editions (well, in this case ‘Arcade Editions’). It’s a funny old world!

TMA 185 – Update City

tma.jpg

Tom’s been given a platform! He chooses to use it as place to voice his grievances not with global political issues, but naturally, the state of the current generation of consoles. Besides this long debate (and unfortunately un-editable background cat noises), Mat’s been on Monster Hunter World again, picking up some PS1 games and getting a first class ticket to Update City!

TMA 182 – Tom And Mat Repack

tma.jpg

There’s sadness in the shack this week. Sure, we talk about games, but it’s the last time for a while Tom Parry will sit opposite Mat Boyle at a table. It’s been 5 years of weekly podcasts but now it’s time for Tom to head on home to the UK. He will be missed and the podcast will lumber on. Until we figure out how to set up Skype for podcasting purposes though, let’s just take a moment to appreciate the man, the myth, the legend…

TMA 181 – Energy Drink Experimentation

tma.jpg

It’s said that all good podcasts must at some point dabble with drinking exotic beverages on air. This is that time for Tom and Mat Attack. Between sips of Thai Red Bull, here Mat talk about Tobu Tobu Girl, Pyre and Animal Crossing Pocket Camp, while Tom retells tails on Sonic, both Forces and Mania, as well as what he’s been buying and playing besides that!

TMA 180 – Xbox S X Tricky

tma.jpg

Cor! The boys have many things to talk about on this, the 180th episode of TMA cast! Apart from Mat Finally starting Night in the Woods, Tom’s been getting into Sonic Forces… But that’s not where the fun ends. The boys are getting into the weeds on real issues. Upgrade Consoles – Yay or Nay? Net Neutrality – No Thank You. Sonic Forces vs. Sonic Mania…? Well, that would be telling now, wouldn’t it…

Listen here.

TMA 178 – Our Favourite Game…

tma.jpg

Illness is a funny thing. It can make a man question to it’s core not only how great a single game is in itself, but further more games in general. Join the sick mind of Mat Boyle as he talks Wolfenstein 2, Super Mario Odyssey and Mario _ Rabbids Kingdom Battle, while the healthy and vibrant Tom Parry also chucks in his two cents on single player experiences, particularly in fighting games and confesses to the most heinous of acts: He’s finally caved and bought a Switch!
