Nerds Without Pants Special: Wherein We Vamp For About 45 Minutes Before the Show

Or: Waiting for Kijek

Welcome to a shadow drop! Yes, friends, this is a special edition of Nerds Without Pants hitting a few days before episode 154 releases. Because we love you. And Julian is an editing masochist. Anyway, enjoy this meandering talk between Julian and Justin before the show as they wait for Patrick to show up.

There's some E3 talk that didn't make it into the main show, a little bit of Consumption Junction, and even some behind the scenes talk. Maybe not the most riveting content, but we like seeing when podcasts pull the curtain back, so maybe you will too! Enjoy, and please look forward to episode 154, coming soon!

This opening sounds familiar ... as does the close ... hope Patrick's ok!

I didn't realize what a hassle rafflin' could be.

Funny how that happens, right?

I don’t have a working printer at home, so I usually type up all the Great Game Giveaway entries before I leave for work on recording day. Then I cut them, fold them, and then put them in the Mega Buster of Destiny before the show. I forgot to do that before this episode, and it sucked. Won’t forget again!

EarthBound Review Rewind

Remember that silly old trope in teen movies where the nerdy “plain Jane” character magically becomes super attractive just by removing her glasses? It was a bit like that with EarthBound- an RPG that was largely ignored when released on the Super NES in its twilight years. Nintendo’s ill-conceived ad campaign telling the player that “this game stinks” didn’t do it any favors either. The game’s overtly humorous kid-friendly facade was unusual for its time and quickly written off as ugly and boring by all but the most accepting of RPG fans. But thanks to the positive praise in gaming forums years later, it picked up steam and eventually became lauded as one of the best on the Super NES. Much like the bespectacled character in every 90s teen comedy, it was as if EarthBound removed its glasses. Nothing was different about it- just our perception of what was already there.
