    Hey, it’s another episode of Nerds Without Pants! It’s a pretty good one, I think. This post is lackluster at best because I got two hours of sleep last night, which is not even long enough to sleep through this episode. That makes sense, right?

    Nerds Without Pants is back with part three of this weird PlayStation list thingy that we did.

    Welcome to an episode of Nerds Without Pants that comes in at an actual respectable hour count!

    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.

    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!

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?
