Nerds Without Pants Special: Music That Makes You Go Hmmm

It's got a beat, and I can dance to it!

Welcome, at last, to the annual Nerds Without Pants music special! Yeah, it's waaaay later than intended, but we promise you it was worth the wait. If you don't like it, you can file your complaints to Julian. Find him on twitter @Tyrone_Swift. Oh, did we just spoil one of the surprises? Don't worry, there's more to come, so please enjoy this huge labor of love, preferably without pants on.

This came out real good! I miss Angelo's music talks a lot, but it was good to hear from him. Hope people liked this! I know theres already a few things I need in my life from it. (What was that last track Angelo played from a Japanese Vania? That track is fire)

Yeah, I didn’t have time to make a track list, sorry. I’d hit Angelo up on twitter.

I heard the first three picks before coming back and I'm hearing one of Justin's at around 30 mins in now. Definitely enjoy the picks so far.

I do find it interesting how each person has a different methodology to picking things in the show.  It was someting I noticed a little of, but didn't think much about it during Chrono Crossing.  It became more apparent when running through this podcast and the musical picks.

And then there is Angelo.

Yeah, one of us picked music that moved them from games they played. One of us picked music that made them rock out from games they played. One of us is super knowledgeable about video game music. And one of us listened to a podcast.

Great episode guys. Love your guys music stuff. I even drop the playback speed to normal. 

Damn is Angelo one hell of an audiophile. He got so technical and had so much VG music knowledge that I was extremely impressed. I knew he was the music man but I didn't know the true depths. 

The Witcher picks had me really close to starting it up this weekend. I gave my nephew the original PS4 one I bought years ago and upgraded to the Xbox One X digital GOTY version. I had never even opened that PS4 copy so I'm excited to try it on my X since I finally finished Divinity: Original Sin 2. Coop with my friends was a blast. We're eagerly anticipating a 3rd one if it's coming. 

Overall great episode and so glad to have Angelo back for a bit. (We forgive you for Culdcept Saga Angelo, come back). Also thanks for making me go hunting for a Portrait of Ruin game. Like I need any more backlog...

Oh god, I sound even worse sped up, and I am truly sorry for you to put yourself through that.

Also, I feel like all my funny drops wouldn’t land with the audio sped up.

The Witcher 3 looks AMAZING on Xbox One X, and I know it loads way faster than the PS4, because I got to watch Patrick boot it up on air and it took twice as long.

Haha, dont sweat it. Its actually strange to hear stuff normal speed now. I had on Beastcast a day after listening to your podcast and that opening jingle was so damn strange. I was like, "Why did they slow down their intro?" Then I remembered I didnt put the speed back up. I normally listen at 1.4-1.5x but I'll hit 1.8x when I'm behind after a vacation or something. 

Honestly I sometimes wish some of my mid-tier podcasts would change up hosts or just end so I can go back to normal speed. One podcast I really enjoyed lost its main host to cancer. His wife replaced him but I just dont care for her. Nothing against her personally but I dont think she fits. Especially since her husband was so different personality wise. I kind of want to drop it but I really enjoy the other 2 hosts a lot. If the main one I like of those 2 leaves or begins having a 2nd podcast, I'm out. 

Geekbox is another I'm hoping gets back to its golden days. If I didnt like both Ryan's so much I'd be done. I started when they had 4 hosts regularly and Alice Liang occasionally. I really miss Adam Finch and hope hes doing ok after his brothers passing. Even when they still had Justin Haywald it was great. I'm sure some will return next episode for the big 500.

Cant wait to dive into Witcher 3 some day. Despite finishing Divinity Original Sin 2, my friend and I jumped back in. I really love that game. I'm eagerly anticipating a 3rd one if it comes. Maybe let them make the next KOTOR.
