Nerds Without Pants Episode 139: Missing in Action

Half of this episode is missing, too!

Gah! What the hell happened? Well, Julian will explain, but basically, this edition of Nerds Without Pants is problematic. Wait, that’s not the right phrase. It’s plagued with problems. Lots of problems! To quote The Doctor: “I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry.” Hopefully you power through the audio issues, because we have former PixlBit Features Editor Jesse Miller to talk about missing in action games. Please be gentle in the comments; Julian agonized over this one.

PixlBit's 2015 Game of the Year Awards!

As 2016 is here, our staff looks back to our favorite games of 2015. WAY back!

2015 was an interesting year for gaming, the year the 8th console generation started to push out the 7th gen, where almost every game was coming onto one of the newer consoles and last gen ports becoming fewer and farther between. Yet when looking at the games everyone else was voting for each year, we noticed something. The real best games released received very few, if any, awards from other outlets. So we at Pixlbit decided to give the actual best games to come out this year their own commendation! So if you missed any of these this year, be sure to check them out and see what you missed out on!

The Death of a Titan

What the cancellation of Project Titan means to Blizzard and us.

After seven years of development, Blizzard decided to officially pull the plug on their mysterious Project Titan; what many assumed was to be the successor to the king of all MMORPGs, World of Warcraft.  Since Titan was never officially announced, it’s doubtful that the game ever made it past the conceptual state, though we will likely never know how many resources had been dedicated to the project, or if it was ever even close to becoming anything more than vaporware.

Celebrating Five Years of PixlBit

The staff of PixlBit commemorates five years of the site.

It’s absolutely dumbfounding to think that PixlBit has existed in this world for five years now. I can’t even begin to tell you all how many times Chessa and I considered hanging it up and just moving on with life. But we never did and I’m not sure why that is. The early days were grim at times; visitation was extremely low, the hours invested were high, and my day job was absolutely soul crushing. I guess we always felt there was a light at the end of the tunnel – a point at which it would all pay off. And boy has it.

Nerds Without Pants Special:E3 2014:The Epilogue:For Real

I promise this is the last NWP about E3 this year.

Man, that E3 was a bummer, wasn't it? Or..not? I don't even know anymore. I had a rough week at work and I've spent most of my freetime podcasting, but it sure feels to me like this was one boring show with little to be excited for. Fortunately, I have Jesse and Nick to tell my why I'm wrong!

Rage Quit: Nintendo Keeps Tripping Over Their Own Feet

Jesse isn't really mad at Nintendo, he's just disappointed.

At PixlBit we pride ourselves on reporting news and reviewing games with as little bias as humanly possible.  That being said, there are times when we don’t want to sit all quiet and polite and instead rage into the vastness that is the internet. In this installment, Jesse rages against Nintendo's self destructive death grip on IP image control.

Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus is coming to the PS3 This Fall...

...wait, what? Someone surely misspelled PS4.

Over the past few days, Sony has been teasing a big announcement via a series of tweeted images and cryptic messages. “When Worlds Collide, Heroes Will Return” we were told in the last cryptic message – a message that I may add, also linked Insomniac Games with whatever was to be announced.  Worlds colliding…could fans finally be treated to that long clamored for Jak and Ratchet crossover game? Nope, but what was finally revealed wasn’t too shabby either, as Ratchet and Clank will be returning in Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus on Sony’s PlayStation 3 later this fall.

Rapid Reaction: Grand Theft Auto V Gameplay Trailer

GTA V is going big, but Jesse warns that bigger isn't always better.

The long anticipated Grand Theft Auto Gameplay Trailer was released earlier this morning, and it’s safe to say that it likely left many a gamer wide eyed, with their jaws firmly planted on the ground.  The sheer epic mass that is the newly designed Los Santos is breathtaking.  The trailer depicts a plethora of environments - from high rises to the great outdoors and everywhere in between – and it becomes clear that we’ll likely get lost more than once in this beautiful world that Rockstar has built for us.

Publishers: A Necessary Evil

A recent update from Double Fine gets Jesse thinking that maybe publishers aren't completely useless after all.

It’s been a little over a year since Kickstarter kicked down the door of the video game industry and introduced itself.  Double Fine’s then untitled adventure game utilized the crowd funding site to finance a game in a genre that most have presumed dead, or at least mostly dead (which means a little alive), for quite some time now.  No reasonable publisher would hand money over to a studio not known to be especially financially successful, for an unproven IP in a genre that some younger gamers may not even know exists – and it’s hard to blame them.

Push Start to Continue Episode 1: PSTC The Reboot

Reboot!!

A great tragedy has befallen PixlBit.  Through the instability and craziness that is technology, all previous episodes of Push Start to Continue have been lost.  This calamity not only affects the denizens of PixlBit, but is considered a great loss to humanity as a whole.  We are all a little worse off because of it.
