    Are you feeling more stressed than normal? Anxious? Are the walls closing in on you? We feel that, too, so this episode of Nerds Without Pants is designed to throw those feelings right out the window. Yep, it’s another musical edition of Stage Select, but this time we go through video game songs that make us happy. It’s an eclectic mix, so let’s just dive right in!

    Spoils Final Fantasy VII: Remake

    28/04/2020 Duration: 03h09min

    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!

    Welcome to what’s sure to be one of the most divisive episodes of Nerds Without Pants since, like, The Last of Us came out. We’re here to talk to you about some of our greatest video game regrets, which ends up being a very healing and cathartic Stage Select topic. Then, Julian and Justin are against the world when it comes to Final Fantasy VII Remake, and in Video Game Cage Match we have Horizon: Zero Dawn taking on X-Com: Enemy Unknown.

    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.

    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!

    It’s the final Nerds Without Pants of the year, and that means it’s time to take a look back at 2019, a look back at the 8th generation, and a look forward to the 9th generation.

Then we do a broad walkthrough of the game, which is pretty great considering neither of us took any notes. Ok, yeah, we get some stuff wrong, but the point is, we played the game in very different ways and it was fun comparing notes. We hope you enjoy it!
