Nerds Without Pants Episode 194: How We Survived 2020 With Video Games

Or: How John Brandon sold us on that damn Game and Watch clock.

Welcome to the first episode of Nerds Without Pants! It’s our annual Game of the Year episode, and we are happy to be joined by Johnny Brandon from the Square Roots podcast. It’s a fun discussion of our top five games that we played in 2020. Since last year was a great year to play some older games our lists don’t exclusively come from 2020. We wrap up with listener top 3s and an impromptu Video Game Cage Match between Final Fantasy VII Remake and Yakuza: Like a Dragon.  Let’s jump right in!

Nerds Without Pants Special: The List Part 5

We made it!

Oh hey, we finally got to the end of the Nerds Without Pants reading a list of every PlayStation game. In hindsight...this was a poor decision. But you guys seem to dig it, so much so that we'll be releasing a supercut of all five parts in a single episode later on. But we should really never do this again.

Nerds Without Pants Special: The List Part 4

Better late than never...

Nerds Without Pants is still on hiatus, but in the meantime, perhaps you would enjoy part 4 of us going through all the North American (ish) PlayStation 1 releases? Yeah, it's super late. We recorded this way back in July and I think I edited this around October, so I'm not even sure what's in this one. Executive dysfunction sucks.

Super Meat Boy Forever Review

You can’t beat this meat.

Ten years ago, we were given a gift in the form of Super Meat Boy on Xbox Live Arcade. At the time, we’d never really seen anything like it. Smaller indie downloadable games were really just starting to enter the mainstream consciousness of gaming and Super Meat Boy effectively kicked the door in and made clear that these smaller titles had something special to offer and were here to stay. And since that statement, myriad other developers have taken lessons from Super Meat Boy and its DNA can be seen in so many games that would follow. However, this creates an interesting predicament that Team Meat needed to solve - how do you offer a sequel that manages to bring something new to the table, while still feeling as simple and approachable (and difficult) as the original did?

Super Baseball 2020 Review Rewind

The Big Leagues

With the year 2020 and the MLB World Series well underway, there’s no better time than now to talk about Super Baseball 2020. In 1991, SNK- the famed developer of such blockbusters as Metal Slug and Aero Fighters- released their spin on America’s favorite pastime in the arcades. Two years later, it was ported to the Sega Genesis with NuFX and Electronic Arts handling the programming and publishing. With its futuristic setting and easy controls, the game offered a level of enjoyment missing from baseball’s more realistic interpretations on the home console platform.

Nerds Without Pants Episode 187: Son of Halloween Havoc

(It's getting really hard to come up with HH sequel names)

Another year, another Halloween Havoc edition of Nerds Without Pants. I’ll be honest, I’m not feeling very spoopy this year. Thankfully, we have NWP co-founder, friend-of-the-show, and author Rob here to get us in the scary spirit!

Nerds Without Pants Special: The List Part 3

You can hear Justin start to fade in this one...

Nerds Without Pants is back with part three of this weird PlayStation list thingy that we did. At this point it’s starting to feel like a mistake, but people seem to enjoy it, so who are we to judge? We are our harshest critics, after all. There’s still a couple more hours left of this crap, so…yay?

Nerds Without Pants Special: The List

Part 1, question mark?

Hey, so Justin and I did a thing. It's a thing that took us almost 5 hours to record, and we don't know if it's even entertaining. So I'm releasing the first hour. I'm not telling you what it is, because finding out is part of the fun, maybe? Anyway, if you guys like this let us know, and we'll release the rest in a couple more pieces. But if this is totally boring we understand!
