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:
It's a bittersweet episode this one. Wam leaves the dia.log crew and we wish him the best in his future endeavours. Which means the crew are now at a karaoke spot singing Baka Mitai. We still did talk about video games though. Meck got the chance to "play" Lego Super Mario, a Lego set that you can actually play like a video game. He also have lived his fantasy as a games show participant in Fall Guys. Danial has been flexing on the mobile crowd with his wins on Call Of Duty Mobile, leveraging his console experience, while Anan joined the Slay Crew last Aidil Adha raya season, while Ubisoft shafted him on DLC. It's the start of a new arc for dia.log, let's see how this one turns out on the other side! --- Send in a voice message:
How many games start with a war crime?  Meck played Ghost Of Tsushima ahead of its release and can now legally talk about it. Meanwhile, Wam is legally required to stay at home and guess what, he's been playing a bunch of video games. For whatever reason, Anan and Danial continue the Ubisoft combo from last episode, sharing their stories about controller issues and... war crimes. And Meck came in with gang wars. The Geneva Convention isn't meant to be broken, unless in the safe confinements of a video game. Or is it? Until we are punished for our alleged crimes, we'll continue to give you sick banters for you, dear readers of this description. --- Send in a voice message:
Sacré bleu! We started with a Japanese joke and went westward from thereon. Wam's back in Malaysia, but not without suffering. At least he played the new Pokemon Sword Sheild DLC for real this time. Anan allegedly survived the Steam Summer Sales and has now discovered what's it like to listen to podcasts, oddly enough. Danial brought the vroom vrooms as the crew sidestep into the realm of real motorsport talk once again with the new F1 season, and also planning to take a trip to the Lesbos Island. For whatever reason, we talked too much about Ubisoft. Allons-y mon ami! And pardon the (Google Translated) French. --- Send in a voice message:
Spoliers for The Last Of Us Part II will drop at the end of the podcast.  The eternal summer of game announcements has just started and we already tired out. But that can only mean one thing: playing more old games.   Anan and the team is back together again to investigate the truth of Persona 4 Golden now that it's on PC. Wam talks about how the new Pokemon Sword And Shield DLC is about. Meck got around and tried out Aloy and the Magical AirPod- the alternative title for Horizon Zero Dawn.   We King Crimson'd the episode as we poked Danial about why The Last Of Us Part II's moving story isn't budging us, not even one bit. So spoilers will start at the end of the episode.  The Chad is out of jail, and have mastered the way of the trashfire. --- Send in a voice message:
The Future Of Gaming has arrived, but we're still playing old games. Meck revisited Kingdoms Of Amalur ahead of the upcoming remaster. Wam revisits Bioshock 2 and opened that conversation we nicely sidestepped last episode. Anan finished Disco Elysium and Danial finished a new game not out yet so he can't talk about it. Yet. The rest of the episode the crew talking about the games they are excited about coming to the newly revealed PS5. Enjoy video games while the future isn't here yet, but also beware of getting accidentally Stadia'd. --- Send in a voice message:
The future of gaming is about to arrive. For now, let's talk about old games. Old games getting remastered- like Mafia II and Saints Row: The Third which Danial checked out. Dota 2, which recurring guest Tohka has been simping on instead of his usual gacha expenditures.   It doesn't stop there. Meck played a relatively old game that is Disco Elysium and shared his wild adventures there, and join Wam as he remembers the good old days of Bionicle- yes it's sort of video game-relevant still.   Shut up, and see more of the wildest things we say be real in the coming months from this episode. --- Send in a voice message:
The last of this year's Ramadan episode is wild. We bring in potential-vTuber Irham to the panel to judge if Wam's a furry as he talks about furry animals. Meanwhile, Danial has played a You And Me And Her ahead of the Steam release and continues his roleplay server investigation. This time in GTA V. Meck played an unexpected Tony Hawk game ahead of the new Tony Hawk game announcement, conveniently enough. And Anan's not happy with Zoom. Ramadan is ending, Eid and summer is coming, and the world seems to be getting a bit better. Now's a good time for video games. Especially ones with air dashes. --- Send in a voice message:
Welcome to another episode of the most popular podcast with the mention of Hang Tuah Assassin's Creed. See Danial flex his vroom vroom muscles after competing in an esport race with Malaysia's top GT3 drivers. Meanwhile, Anan is learning more Japanese for future flexing. Wam gives in to his need for Monster Hunter, while Meck is hunkering down to report on the biggest strategy tactics releases this year. We also talked about the new Assassin's Creed game we are getting (and the Assassin's Creed game we wanted), and reacted to The Last Of Us Part II's unfortunate news. Remember to control your desires, especially during this blessed Ramadan month. Link to the FF VII Remake Spoilertalk: --- 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:
