2013 has drawn to a close… and it was a big year for Nerdery. This week, the Midwest crew looks back on 2013 and proclaims it the year of the _______ .
Are we right? Are we wrong? Are we so off the mark it’s criminal? Tune in, find out, and tell us what you think on facebook, twitter, or midwestnerds.com. And happy new year you sons and daughters of silly persons.
You know what’s better than the Midwest Nerds podcast being back? The return of listener questions/ suggestions. KEEP ‘EM COMIN’ at midwestnerds.com / on our facebook page/ twitter / via carrier pigeon. Several big topics this week, including Microtransactions (and how much rage they generate) and What happens when the PS4′s adorable robot video camera game gets used to stream unspeakable things on twitch.tv.
This week the Nerds are three – and Joel is itching to correct Nick’s corrections that he corrected while Joel was away buying a new TV for his cabin in the woods? If that last sentence didn’t make much sense, neither does our new obsession with correcting our corrections… The BIG topic this week: Mobile Games – what makes a good one, and is there such a thing as a truly “great” mobile game?
This week it’s Nick and Jason show – as Steve had other commitments and Joel is bringing technology to the wilderness (true story), so Nick starts off the show correcting all of the misinformation we spewed last week when he wasn’t here to correct us (also a true story). Then Nick and Jason discuss the merits of getting a NexGen console “Day 1″ or even Year 1 – as Nick just recently took a step away from his launch day console plans. Then Jason reveals that he’s truly become a Google fanboy, and talks about why you should be too.
Also this week the Nerds recommend the following:
-TweetBot for iPhone
-Youtube on your TV
-Tabletop from Geek and Sundry (Youtube)
-The Slow Mo Guys Channel (Youtube)
Two weeks in a row – you best believe the boys are back.
