In this very late edition of dia.log, Wam finally went to an FGC weekly gathering. Meanwhile, Danial dragged Anan to race pretend cars at ServerDNA and pitched an idea for a Gamer Matters esports team. Meck reached his breaking point with Ghost Recon Breakpoint but continues to find joy in Borderlands 3. And Irham... had a class on marriage? This episode is published one week later than expected, apologies! More info on why this happened will be revealed on the next dia.log. --- Send in a voice message:
Welcome to 2020! What the heck is happening?! As the world news becomes bleaker than ever as we step into the new decade, at least there are video games. Not long after we crowned The Anan Award For Best Game We Didn't Play winner to Disco Elysium, Anan played it. Meanwhile, Rookie Of The Year Danial joins a proper esports team. Wam managed to get the great delicacy that is keropok lekor while in the UK and has good things to say on future Pokemon Sword And Shield DLC, and Meck has been grinding off-stream, attempting to improve the show production. But obviously, you're here to hear our take on the PS5 logo that everyone's excited about. And shower curtains. New year, new look and sound! Hopefully. We are still investigating further improvements to audio quality. --- Send in a voice message:
Sorry! Due to various circumstances, our follow-up to the abang posmen Norman Reedus episode of dia.log - The Gamer Matters Podcast was severely delayed. The good news is, this is the penultimate episode of our regular dia.log, with the final one next week. The last two episodes of the year will be dedicated for GM Game Of The Year 2019 deliberations. With that out of the way, the gang went to see Level Up KL 2019. Wam gave his early day-1 impressions of Pokemon Sword And Shield. Meck and Danial lived in a world where a good Need For Speed game has blessed the world. Anan found an interesting free mobile game. Buriedbones. There are some arguments, but it's fine. The real Death Stranding is the friends we made along the way. --- Send in a voice message:
On the day of the recording, the world has been blessed with the barrage of Death Stranding reviews. And we got Burhan from Kakuchopurei, who has finished and reviewed it, to explain what is Hideo Kojima's latest magnum opus. And the result is quite a surprising conversation. Meanwhile, Meck figured out how to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass for PC, Danial is very much in love with The Outer Worlds and Wam, utilising his presence in forward base Bristol, took a peek at the Pokemon Center pop-up store in London. Anan was there, but like Norman Reedus in Death Stranding, you'll hear him occasionally. --- Send in a voice message:
It was a wild time seven days ago when we recorded the latest dia.log episode. Danial, Anan, Meck and Irham went on the GM World Tour. Meanwhile Wam leads the way as we dissected what happened with Blizzard. Meck warns about the addiction of Destiny 2 now that it's worth playing. And Anan laments the existence of dead malls around the Klang Valley. Remember kids, don't do drugs. --- Send in a voice message:
Do you remember, the 21st night of September? The usual dia.log crew have gathered While chasing the haze away Wam is in the UK Anan finds a headphone cafe Meck ranks a loot-shooter- remember? Danial also says Control's great Aaa, aaa, aaaa Ba de yaaaaaaaaa - say that you remember Ba de yaaaaaaaaa - give this one a listen Ba de yaaaaaaaaa - as we rant the night awayyyyyy --- Send in a voice message:
In this episode of dia.log, Wam thought it was a good idea to go without a docket and just have a good conversation. You'd be the judge of that. Outside of brief talks on Astral Chain and Control, you're getting a slice of life of a Malaysian with rants about vaping, Perodua Myvis, friends and KFC Double Down. --- Send in a voice message:
In this episode of dia.log - The Gamer Matters Podcast, Meck continues to dive deep into the Jojo hole and went over heaven. Wam continues to love Bloodborne. And Danial made us tangent into a long conversation how ridiculous, or tame depending on your region, the Malay literature novels being taught in schools back in our days. With gamescom 2019 just passed, Meck and Danial ranted on their love/hate relationship with Need For Speed now that Need For Speed Heat was announced. Hot takes on the full Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack 1 characters, Minecraft RTX, and heated forum conversations of Apex Legends were served. Oh, and somehow we talked about football. And Johor. --- Send in a voice message:
In this episode on dia.log - The Gamer Podcast, Anan tried catfighting in Yakuza 0 and now has a MIDI keyboard. Danial gave a status update on Malaysia's Roblox Community. Wam has issues about Warhammer 40K's Space Marines he needs to air out. Meanwhile, Meck is being attacked by an enemy Stand. The dia.log crew also talked a lot about the event that was EVO 2019, as well as the recent Malaysian Digital Corporation (MDEC) event where Level Up KL 2019 is announced. We shared our experiences of talking with MDEC's Hasnul Hadi and also Metronomik's Wan Hazmer and Magnus Game Studio's DC Gan. If you happen to suddenly be getting a surge of interest of all things JoJo, let us know, we must further our understanding of the JoJo Machine. --- Send in a voice message:
In this episode of dia.log: Wam finally played the catalyst of the podcast, Detroit: Become Human, and have strong thoughts on SPOILERS. Meanwhile, Meck also played a game from last year, Forza Horizon 4. Danial also played a game from last year, We Happy Few, how it's good now, and debate on the nature of immersive sims and aesthetic-based games. We don't have Anan this time, so we brought Irham in and he will pitch you on why you should get a Lenovo Ideapad. And we can all agree, we'll pay good money to remove questionable individuals from their respective game companies, and bet on the roulette to see who would win in a pay per view cage match. --- Send in a voice message:
We've done dia.log 35 times too many, so this episode we saw some unexpected shake-ups. The crew drill down the details of the new Warframe update, Empyrean, as revealed at Tennocon recently and then we went hard and long on Kazuma Kiryu's adventures from Yakuza 0 and 6. And then we have a new segment, a segment so fresh, new and unexpected no one bothered to give it a proper name yet. If this episode isn't selling you on The Yakuza Experience™,  don't worry. This might be just the start of a long chain of episodes where we keep on talking about it. --- Send in a voice message:
 It's a podcast of emotions in this episode of dia.log. Wam and Meck got high, in the sky, to play video games. Meck suffered the unluckiest streak of 1 rolls in just one day. Danial was fortunate enough to see and play Metronomik's new game No Straight Roads. And Irham, who finally appeared on an episode this year, celebrated MapleStory's birthday and wax poetry how fishing is essentially a series of gacha pulls. Lastly, Anan had one big gripe about Yakuza 0, one of the many games we just bought in the currently running Steam Summer Sale. The menacing Deviltower in the heart of Kuala Lumpur was awakened, and in its wrath, casts a big luck debuff. So bring extra dice, and a drink, for this one. --- Send in a voice message:
 E3 2019! It's over! Now the Gamer Matters crew looks back at the glorious, glorious press conferences, briefings and showcases that celebrate upcoming new games. And like always, we rank them by making a tier list. Joining us this episode is Intan Mawarni from Mygameon, a real gaming journalist, as we weigh down on the many games announcements and the top 5 we look forward to post-E3 2019. Keanu "You're Breathtaking!" Reeves, Ikumi Nakamura, the four nanny squad and Project Scarlett Johansson all make some appearance in some form. So come for the memes and stay for the variety of hot takes! --- Send in a voice message:
The gang is tired, and before minute one the podcast has fallen into the ruinous ways of chaos. Meck forgot to introduce the panel and had something to say about the new Warframe update. Wam watched a seminal TV series and amazed at that one part of the show. Danial goes westward and 'watched' the Indy 500 and actually played Detroit: Become Human for real. Anan? He's back in the grove. Also, the gang talked about Death Stranding babies and made an E3 bingo card on the spot. With no preparations. We're tired, guys.

 As our #gachapuasa campaign continues, what better way to vent off some repressed urges of gacha pulling than talk more about gacha? The dia.log crew brought on Twitch streamer/our Dota external correspondence/avid gacha fan Tohka to talk 30 minutes of gacha. Even Meck joined up with his tales of F1 Manager, the F1 gacha game. Meanwhile, Anan continued to share his experiences in the deep survival game Outward, Danial now making car tier lists, and Wam rallying the crew on calling out the awfulness that is the Epic Games Store. It's a long tale of gacha and survival games, so sit back and enjoy the ramblings. --- Send in a voice message:
THE LINE #031 (5/2/19)

THE LINE #031 (5/2/19)


 The last two weeks was a busy one over at Gamer Matters as we managed to cover the two big releases. Meck is now legally able to talk about Days Gone and somehow liked it. He also spent the whole episode drawing the line of which he can or cannot cross. Meanwhile, Wam raves about that new Fate movie playing in Malaysian cinemas and then brought us all on the dehype train as he deconstructed how bad Mortal Kombat 11's progression is. Thankfully, Anan is enjoying himself in the crazy survival game Outward, and Danial got Wam in a good mood by baiting him with Revue Starlight Re LIVE. As the holy month of Ramadhan has begun, we are also organising a pledge to withheld all gacha rolls throughout the month. Join the hashtag #gachapuasa to help cut down your need to roll a gacha. Have a blessed Ramadhan and all the best fighting The Evil Within! --- Send in a voice message:
PS4 Produa #030 (18/4/19)

PS4 Produa #030 (18/4/19)


Have we gone too deep with our Malaysian-flavoured inside jokes? Maybe. On this episode, Meck picks up a hoe and talk about the farming in Warframe, the only game he has been playing that he can legally talk about this episode. Anan is on a gaming detox. And Wam found the most Wambait gacha game ever made. Meanwhile, Danial went robot in the longest dia.cast segment so far, detailed his journey on upgrading his graphics card (and how it all went wrong) and attended... an event we just could not wrap our heads around. Not only that, we gave our hot takes on the confirmed hardware specs of the new Playstation console, and dug up the grave of Telltale to give one more telling off. Have fun listening to the fruits of our labour, which has a minor percentage drop for a Rubico Prime Blueprint. Note: For our international listeners, go check out the Malaysian car marque Perodua. --- Send in a voice message:
 On this episode of dia.log - The Gamer Matters Podcast, we have Meck outlining some tips if you want to buy a gaming laptop. Danial has been having fun with Origin Access, the game subscription service by EA. And dia.cast is back to discuss the roller coaster that is the Bahrain Grand Prix. Wam didn't play any games so he talked about more manga and the new Ultraman show on Netflix... before slowly realising he did play other games and decided to talk about it more. Like Warframe, which Anan played a lot too. But to top the show, everyone here is excited for Borderlands 3 finally get announced. Though that all stopped when we discussed the development woes of Anthem, which explains a lot of why the game is as is. Also: we said the word "cyber" this year: a dated word in the world of video games. --- Send in a voice message:
The dia.log crew are back again with their long talks about video games and video games-adjacent passions.  Meck got another review unit again just by showing up to a media event. Wam tells the long tales of the Love Shack, a little old place where we can get together and do combos in Devil May Cry 5. Anan finally tried out Persona 5. And unfortunately for Danial, he has not many good things to say about Left Alive. We also chipped in our thoughts on Stadia, Google's new gaming platform that we won't be available here. Outside of the realm of games, Wam laments that he is a living embodiment of a typical manga character while dia.cast revs up as the racing boys got excited that F1 is back. Get ready, this party's getting crazy! --- Send in a voice message:
In this episode of dia.log - The Gamer Matters Podcast: Meck played with Legos (The Lego Movie 2 Videogame). Danial found an FMV racing game. Wam hates Geralt from The Witcher 3. Anan Goes Russian Post-Apocalypse Metro Exodus. While Danial seems to like the American Mat Rempit Post-Apocalypse Days Gone. Melee players got salty. And Melty Blood players in the bathroom rejoiced. All this, and more, in dia.log- The Gamer Matters Podcast! We're one year old now! --- Send in a voice message:
