Nerds Without Pants Episode 105: The Best of the Worst Year
2016: bad for mankind, great for video games.
The Nerds Without Pants return from their (overlong) holiday break to talk about a lot of damn games! No Stage Select or Chrono Crossing this time, because we’re about Consumption Junction and our favorite games of 2016. Let’s get to it!
Angelo has rediscovered shoot ‘em ups, and Patrick is over the moon for Abzu. Julian mourns his latest Diablo III failure. The Nintendo Switch comes up, and the Pantsless Ones discuss the presentation, the console, and the games that have been shown so far. Also, anime!
We wrap with our top three games of 2016. See if you can guess our games and rankings based on listening to us last year. There may be some surprises (but probably not)
Next time, we return to our normal format. For Stage Select, Angelo wants to know your top 3 video game intros. Take that how you will: it can be a cutscene, a level, a cool bit that happens before the game proper starts.
For Chrono Crossing, we’re going back to 2001, so let us know your favorite game of that year that isn’t a re-release or a port.
