Nerds Without Pants Special: Swedish Meatballs

Njut av föreställningen!

Angelo and Julian felt bad about being gone so long, so they got together to talk about a bunch of stuff that wouldn’t have fit into episode 120. Enjoy this bite-sized (I guess??) episode of Nerds Without Pants!

This episode includes: Lamenting the lack of pinball machines in the wild, newfangled Galaga, classic Galaga, Battle on the Big Bridge, Final Fantasy V, an update on Final Fantasy XIV, the weird new policy of triple A games from Square Enix, Dad of Light, Angelo’s board game corner (Great Western Trail, Lords of Waterdeep), wishing we could play D&D, fat chocobos, Metroid: Samus Returns, Dragon’s Crown, and a couple listener questions!

If you would like to buy Hammersong, the comic that Julian edited, please check out its Big Cartel shop!

FEATURED MUSIC:

Månegarm- Hemfärd

Thunder Zone- Leave it to Me

Metroid- Norfair theme

I ... don't really know anything about the games being discussed. Well, Samus Returns is a Metroid, but ...

Super Hang-On Review Rewind

When I was a wee lad in the arcades, motorcycle racers were not often a priority for me to spend my quarters. I was too busy playing After Burner, Galaga, or Ms. Pac-Man. But one day, I saw something that stood out from the usual bunch- Sega’s Super Hang-On, initially released in 1987. As I hopped on the mechanical bike and blasted around that first corner, I knew it was worth every quarter spent. I was one with the road- until I crashed seconds later. While I never won the race or played it in the arcade again, I always remembered how much fun it was. Thankfully, most of the traits that made the coin-op version fun translated well on the Sega Genesis.
