    Episode 181: Memories are the Greatest Gift

    30/07/2020 Duration: 03h01min

    This episode of Nerds Without Pants is coming in late, and I don’t have the energy to do a clever show post or time stamps. I’m sorry; I’ll do better next time. In this episode we talk about some of our favorite memories of game related gifts. We go heavy on Ghost of Tsushima, and we squash the PixlBit beef over Donkey Kong Country 2 and Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze. My mom had great taste in music.       NEXT EPISODE: STAGE SELECT: What are your favorite (or least favorite?) generic video game characters?

    Spoils The Last of Us Part II

    25/07/2020 Duration: 01h56min

    The Last of Us Part II has become one of the most divisive games of this console generation, so much so that we weren’t quite sure if we should do a full spoiler-cast, a quickie discussion during a Consumption Junction segment, or just skip it entirely. But it turns out that we have a lot to say about this game, so come join us to hear from the perspective of someone who played the entire game, and someone who watched a playthrough as we spoil the crap out of this game. No, really, if you are thinking of playing this game and want to stay in the dark, skip this episode and come back to it. Unless you don’t care about spoilers. I’m not going to tell you how to live. I don’t know your life and your struggles.

    Hey, so Justin and I did a thing. It's a thing that took us almost 5 hours to record, and we don't know if it's even entertaining. So I'm releasing the first hour. I'm not telling you what it is, because finding out is part of the fun, maybe? Anyway, if you guys like this let us know, and we'll release the rest in a couple more pieces. But if this is totally boring we understand! FEATURED MUSIC: Apocalypse- Prison Black Bass With Blue Marlin- Intro

    Well, here we go: it’s the Nerds Without Pants spoilercast for Final Fantasy VII Remake. Justin and Julian don’t agree with the majority of reviewers when it comes to this game, but hopefully you will enjoy this different take on one of the biggest games of the year. Keep in mind that, in order for us to talk about what rubbed us wrong about Remake we also need to spoil the original Final Fantasy VII. So if you were thinking of going back and playing that after playing this, you may want to wait before diving into this episode. With that said, enjoy this very raw, very unedited special edition of NWP!

    Ok, I won’t lie; I’ve been editing this episode for almost an entire week, and I just don’t have the mental bandwidth left to write a pithy, entertaining show post. Y’all don’t read this stuff anyway, amirite? Yeah, so here we go.   We talk about video games, namely, games that we have never played, but we love anyway. It’s a really fun Stage Select section, but I don’t have time to give you the time stamps. It’s about a two-hour segment, if you’re one of those people who skip segments. In Consumption Junction, we don’t really have anything to talk about, but we still manage to go on for almost an hour? I don’t know how that happened?

     Nerds Without Pants is back again, but we’re still getting back into the swing of things. Since we were on a six week hiatus it’s time to catch up on a ton of games that we’ve played since the last time we recorded before break. That’s right, folks, it’s time for an all Consumption Junction edition of NWP! But be sure to get the Stage Select topic and the announcement of the first Great Game Giveaway of 2020 at the top of the show. Man, we talk about a lot of games this episode! From Frost Punk to Coffee Talk, Afterparty to Devil May Cry V, there’s probably something for everyone to love in this show. Friendly note to listeners: we end the show with a nearly hour-long spoiler discussion on Horizon: Zero Dawn, so if you’re planning on playing that game maybe save that part of the show for later. Oh, and Julian forgot to throw the Secret Code Phrase in during the episode, so it shows up in the outro (hint: around the 3 hour mark), just in case you are skipping the

    Welcome to the first episode of Nerds Without Pants recorded in 2020! That’s right, we’re back from hiatus and we have a ton of things to say about our favorite games that we played in 2019. There are some obvious games, some shockers, and some games that definitely didn’t come out last year. So, pretty par for the NWP course, eh? I won’t lie, this is a beefy episode, even by our standards, but it’s a fun discussion, with some deep dives on a few games that we’d been dying to talk about. We’re also joined by an old friend partway into the episode, and there’s even time for an impromptu 2019 Video Game Cage Match exhibition, as Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice takes on Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

    Welcome to a special Nerds Without Pants…thing? Ok, I’ll be honest. This is being written by Julian, but I have no earthly idea what you’re in store for here. Justin played another bad game, I think? And he narrated it? This is the first episode of NWP that I’m not involved with, and it feels…really wrong, actually. Anyway, let’s all enjoy this together, shall we? Or possibly suffer together? With Justin’s taste in visual novels this could go either way, to be perfectly honest. So, strap in, and let’s go on a journey!
