Nerds Without Pants Episode 121: This One Gets a Bit (Digital) and Dicey

Come for the Digital and Dice guys. Stay for Angelo's colossal failure.

Welcome, welcome, to the biggest episode of Nerds Without Pants…EVER. No, really, we have all three of the guys from the Digital and Dice podcast, resulting in chaos, hilarity, and tons of conversation derailments as we talk about the most overrated games of all time. Look forward to Angelo’s number one…it’s a doozy! In Chrono Crossing, we go back to 1988 for an eclectic set of picks.

Backloggers Anonymous Mirror's Edge Part 1

We also talk about *gulp* gender issues...

Yeah, that's right, we went there. It's hard not to, really, what with the current drama unfolding around Dragon's Crown, the Tropes Vs. Women videos, and what's in Lightning's bra. We handled it as well as 3 dudes on a video game podcast could, I think, but it would be fantastic if we could get some civil discussion going in the comments. We could have a great follow up when we get to our conclusion episode.

Crimson Shroud Review

You must roll an 18 or higher to enjoy this game. Roll 1 D20. Add an additional D10 if you enjoy RPGs in general. Additionally, add 1 D8 if you enjoy JRPGs, 1 D6 if you like tabletop RPGs, 1 D6 for western RPGs, and 1 D4 for MMORPGs. Finally, add +2 to your total if you’ve ever been LARPing.

Have you ever played a tabletop RPG? If not, the formula in my abstract may sound like some sort of foreign language to you. Essentially, a tabletop RPG is a lot like a video game RPG but instead of a computer calculating random numbers, dice rolls determine all your actions. Will your attack hit? Roll some dice according to a formula. How much damage will it do? Roll another set of dice. Will the attack be critical? Roll again. You get the idea. You honestly can’t even eat a snack without rolling for initiative. It’s this problem that gave rise to the digital version of the RPG, which replaces dice rolls with random numbers generated by a computer.

Battlefield 3 Review

Battlefield 3 escapes its single player experiment.

Is Jesus your co-pilot?  I sure hope so, ‘cause you’re better off with a 2,000 year old carpenter at those helicopter controls than me.  Despite my inability to steer the helicopters, I’m still having a blast in Battlefield 3’s multiplayer.  The vestigial single player campaign aped from Call of Duty is a different story.  But nobody’s buying this game for the single player, and they shouldn’t.  Battlefield games mean multiplayer and this installment should make all couch commandos giddy.

Battlefield 3 Hands On Preview

Viewing the Battlefield 3 Online Beta through the eyes of a noob.

Deciding to take the Battlefield 3 Online Beta for a spin was not a simple decision for me.  It’s the latest in a series that I’ve never played before and while I’ve been known to take some names and kick some ass in even the toughest of FPS single player modes, multiplayer has always been a different story entirely.
