Tom + Mat Attack

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

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

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…

TMA 178 – Our Favourite Game…

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!

TMA 176 – The Dark Side of 3D Podcasting

The boys messed up a recording, so this is officially a do-over! Listen to Tom and Mat quote each other as they tell you tales of Mat’s Trip to a flea market and the wonders he found there in. Tom’s been playing Hell Blade, Mat almost Beat Nier:Automata and a few surprises aside! We look at the upcoming releases for the month of October, talk in length about our piles of shame and as always, have a good old natter!

TMA 173 – X-cellent Content

On this weeks TMA, Mat has fallen down a Destiny 2 shapen Well, consuming all his hopes and dreams in exchange for pretty, pretty Engrams… Tom’s having issues with Advanced Warfare, been disappointed by the Mario Odyssey Switch Bundle and buying some obscure Japanese fighting games… What else do the boys talk about? Have a listen and find out!

TMA 170 – Sonic Maniacs

This week the boys get down to some serious talk on Sonic Mania! A game Tom loves for obvious reasons and Mat can confirm is ‘a good game’ regardless of his feelings on blue spiked mammals. Besides this, Tom talks very highly of the colourful Graceful Explosion Machine while Mat feels slightly let down by patch 1.3 for No Mans Sky… Probably because it’s not a Yakuza game, but we can’t be sure…

Listen here.

TMA 167 – On Game!

On a totally, 100% film discussion free podcast, the boys get back to the good stuff! Video m’games! Tom’s finally succumbed to the charms of JRPGs with Persona 4 (a Parry certified ‘game for planes’) and Xenoblade Chronicles X. Mat on the other hand (and to the surprise of nobody) has beaten Yakuza 3, so he spends his time telling you where it currently lies in his rankings, before he gets into the joys of the 4th instalment in the series…

TMA 166 – Full of Wonder

On this week’s TMA, Tom has finally done it! He’s finally got a full set on Retro Collect… If only it were the N64! It is of course, the Pokemon Mini! He talks us through that, Japanese N64 games and Super Famicom Fighting Games! Mat has perhaps unsurprisingly been playing a new Yakuza game (3) and gives us his feelings on how the ‘Year of Yakuza’ is going, before the boys get completely side tracked by discussions about film…

Listen here.

TMA 165 – Fun ‘n’ Games!

On yet another episode of Tom and Mat Attack, the boys do a little reflecting on the state of games. Mat’s Year of Yakuza brings him from 2 to Kenzan, a Japanese only release set in Edo Period of Japan’s history. The game has some questionable content by Western Standards that the boys pick apart and fan boy over Takeshi Kitano movies. Tom then has dabbled in some more N64 pick ups, that made him reflect over the purity of games that is becoming lost in an age of visceral experiences… Just to keep it light though, Mat’s been raiding in Pokemon Go and making some crazy money in Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire! What fun!
