Nerds Without Pants Special: Switched On

In which Patrick becomes a mouthpiece for Nintendo.

With the Nintendo Switch right around the corner, the Nerds Without Pants bring you hands on impressions of the next big thing from the house of Mario! JD sits in with us, and we are joined by David Welch from Experimental Gamer. He is the man behind the Western-themed RPG Boot Hill Heroes, so go check them out!

Patrick and David worked the recent Nintendo Switch event in Chicago, and JD attended a similar show in New York, so the three of them answer Julian’s questions about the new Nintendo console. We discuss what it’s like to demo games for Nintendo, the event as a whole, the feel of the JoyCon, a brief look at some of the games, and more. Marvel at how deep into the Nintendo well that Patrick has delved! We close with some more talk about David’s upcoming sequel to Boot Hill Heroes. You can follow him on twitter @boothillheroes, so let him know what you think, and look forward to him being on a regular edition of the show.

So I was listening to this while prepping a lesson for my social media intro course and the term "brand ambassador" stuck out, as it's something that's come up a lot lately. I may want to ask Patrick to Skype into my class even ... I'll have to listen to this again, since i was taking notes on a chapter on first listen.

Found a pretty good example of the music from Boot Hill Heroes. I really enjoy it.

Ranking 30 Years of Final Fantasy

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been over five years since I helped PixlBit ring in Final Fantasy’s 25th anniversary with an exhaustive retrospective series, but here we are. Even though I missed the actual 30th anniversary of my favorite game franchise, I couldn’t let that milestone pass without doing something to show my love for this epic saga. To that end, I submit to you, our dear readers, my ordered ranking of the fifteen main games in the series. Naturally, this excludes spinoffs like Final Fantasy Tactics and direct sequels like Lightning Returns, and this is very much my list and in no way is PixlBit’s definitive order. But hey, everyone loves a good list, right? Each game features a quick paragraph reprising some of the information from the FF Retrospective, and a more personal take on each entry. I hope you enjoy!
