Willow Review Rewind

Rooting for the little guy.

Willow is a 1988 dark fantasy movie I never watched as a child. Yet the name still rings a nostalgic bell in my brain. Strangely, I didn’t consciously pay it much attention until I stumbled across the NES game sometime in the mid-2000s. But seeing the name and characters on the cover felt deeply familiar in a way I still grapple to understand. Maybe I saw the movie poster and heard its name in passing as a kid but didn’t think much of it until discovering the video game later in life. Initially released by Capcom in 1989, Willow was a calculated attempt to create a game with broader appeal since it was based on a property with characters familiar to its audience. Fortunately for Capcom, those calculations were entirely correct.

Nerds Without Pants Episode 236: Low Hanging Marshmallow

Okay, mistakes were made.

You know, in hindsight, it was probably a poor idea to have the bombastic Mike Fallek guest on this episode of Nerds Without Pants, considering we were doing a listener AMA. Oh well, just consider this a learning experience. And even though this is the LONGEST EPISODE OF NWP EVER in a year where we’ve already broken the record twice this year it’s also a banger. Enjoy!

Nerds Without Pants Episode 232: Radio NWP

You're listening to 101.5, The Game, KNWP!

Hey there! This is the craziest Nerds Without Pants EVER!

Yep, this is happening. Check it out!

Final Fantasy VII Review Rewind

The 25th anniversary of a victory fanfare for the PlayStation.

And now, the most anticipated epic adventure of the year will never come to a theater near you. Final Fantasy VII.” And so began my interest in RPGs. That commercial blew my 12-year-old mind back in 1997. Besides the impressive animations shown (which we would later learn were only cut-scenes), I was intrigued at seeing that we somehow jumped from Final Fantasy III on the Super NES to now VII on the PlayStation. “What manner of sorcery is this?”, I wondered.
