Nerds Without Pants Episode 168: 2019- At Least the Games Didn't Suck

If only you knew how much trouble Julian had getting this podcast done...

Welcome to the first episode of Nerds Without Pants recorded in 2020! That’s right, we’re back from hiatus and we have a ton of things to say about our favorite games that we played in 2019. There are some obvious games, some shockers, and some games that definitely didn’t come out last year. So, pretty par for the NWP course, eh?

I won’t lie, this is a beefy episode, even by our standards, but it’s a fun discussion, with some deep dives on a few games that we’d been dying to talk about. We’re also joined by an old friend partway into the episode, and there’s even time for an impromptu 2019 Video Game Cage Match exhibition, as Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice takes on Fire Emblem: Three Houses. We’re back, baby!

FEATURED MUSIC:

Control -Take Control

Hypnospace Outlaw- Granny Cream’s Hot Butter Ice Cream

Nier Automata- City Ruins

Final Fantasy VII- Underneath the Rotting Pizza

Life is Strange 2- A long Road Ahead

I think it could be fun to look forward at games yet to come as they battle for our money on either the same release date/month...  also Journey to Silius and Crystalis both are on NES Online, so maybe people could actually play them and realize how awesome the Terminator game really is.

I'd like to offer the following cage matches for consideration:

Breath of the Wild versus either Skyrim or Witcher 3

Dragon Quest XI S vs. either Final Fantasy XV or Persona 5

Final Fantasy XV vs. Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Mortal Kombat 11 vs Samurai Shodown 2019 (I know we already did a MKX vs SF5)

Fallout 4 vs The Outer Worlds

Astral Chain vs. Code Vein

Centipede vs. Galaga

Mega Man 3 Review Rewind

For years, there has been a heated debate among fans of the Mega Man series regarding which one is the best of the original hexalogy. After the facts have been laid out and philosophical life lessons thoroughly dissected, the debate usually boils down to Mega Man 2 vs. Mega Man 3. Which is the greater of the two? Well, no matter which side you’re on, we can all agree on the thing- the cover art for Mega Man 3 finally got it right! No more awkward stances or that pistol-for-an-arm-cannon nonsense. Of course, he didn’t look as good as on the Famicom cover, but that’s another argument.
