Nerds Without Pants Special: 1994 Video Game Buyer's Guide

Bet you didn't see this coming!

Hey folks, lookie here! It's a bonus episode of Nerds Without Pants! This was actually part of our pre-show conversation from episode 80, but it ended up being a pretty fun talk about classic RPGs and other things. Basically, Patrick asks Julian and Angelo for some video game purchasing advice, which turns into this whole thing. Yeah, we end up talking a lot about Final Fantasy as is our way, but it's short, sweet, and you just might learn a thing or two. Or not; we're not professors.

Please let us know what you think of the games Patrick ended up with, and if you agree with Julian and Angelo's assessments, or totally want to call them out. Either way, we always want to hear from you!

I listened to this yesterday AM while working out. Never knew JRPGs were so diverse. Never played Disgaea, but if I ever do play FFVII, it'll be on PS4.

The recent PS4 release is the way to go. It looks great and it has trophy support. I thought they had redone the translation on the PC release, but I guess I was wrong. The translation of that game doesn't hold up well, and in truth was not great at the time if I'm being honest.

Wait .. recent? You mean upcoming?

I mean the 1080p release of the original, not the action/RPG bastardization that they are working on right now.

I'm more of an action guy, so ...

I feel as though there is a really good concept in the episode, so I rather enjoyed it.

Thanks! I may be doing more of these cutting room floor bonus episodes in the future. I also am starting to formulate the beginning of a possible idea on changing the format of the show.

Stranger Things 3: The Game Review

Like so many other children of the ‘80s, I love Stranger Things. Booting it up is like taking a time machine back to my childhood. The pervasive synth music, the wardrobes and the cultural references instantly transport me, making it easier to get sucked into the day-to-day of Hawkins and the ever-creepy world of the Upside-Down. And just like a true ‘80s property, there’s also a tie-in video game to go along with the latest season of the show. Thankfully this tie-in isn’t quite as low budget as as the Atari 2600 and NES tie-ins of yesteryear, but the dungeon crawling brawler pales in comparison to the electrifying viewing experience offered by the show, especially this latest season.
