The Midwest Nerds talk all about this year’s E3 – and by all accounts, it’s the biggest E3 in years. Sony and Microsoft came out swinging, Nintendo stayed home. Which of the Big 3 left the biggest impression on the Nerds? Find out inside the show…
-All about Google I/O
-Seriously, give us Google Glass (pretty please?)
-The (Anti) Social Network
-Steve’s Zombie Tip of the Week
It’s been a while, so we’ve got a show stuffed to the gills. Don’t forget to spread the word on the facey-spaces, the tweetdecks, and Plus Googles. The Midwest Nerds podcast, 119 episodes and we still have no idea what we’re doing.
It’s a face-off between Nick Baker and the rest of the Nerds as Nick struggles to explain what drove him from the loving embrace of Microsoft and Windows Phone (a lover he’s embraced for years) and into the Harlot’s den of Apple and their temptress in-chief: iPhone 5. Also on the show this week:
-SimCity’s failure to launch (and what it means for “always on”)
-Comments from listeners (around the web)
-Hackers and the Zombie apocalypse
-Joel refelcts on his recent playthrough of Final Fantasy VIII
Plus, as always, Steve gets us prepared with more tips of how to survive in a Zombie-infested future. It’s all on this March/April edition of the Midwest Nerds Podcast.
CONFESSION TIME: This episode was recorded in February, and you’re hearing it in March. It’s like having a one-way time-machine, that only goes back in time a couple of weeks… and it’s in your ear.
HOWEVER, This show is top-notch, and worth the wait, because this month the nerds discuss:
-How THQ became not a thing (even though the people loved them)
-JJ ABRAMS IS KING OF THE NERDS (and the force is strong with him)
-Path of Exile, the game created in your dreams, made real (and it’s in open beta).
-Plus, we get serious for a little while, and talk tragedy and our hobby
Plus Baker has a crisis of faith, Microsoft style, and Steve serves up some fresh zombie survival tips. It’s all on this month’s edition of the Midwest Nerds podcast!
First things first, we know you were worried. We should have called. The four of us were NOT killed in a dinosaur zombie jet-pack explosion (but when it’s our time to go, you better believe that’s how we’re checking out), life just got in the way. But our first show in 2013 is crammed to the gills with a Nerd-valanche of info on:
-Dishonored (perhaps one of the best games of 2012)
-Guild Wars 2 (and where we are now)
-Reflections of 2012
-Steve’s impressions of the WiiU and Windows Phone 8
-Steve’s Zombie tip of the week
And tons more stuff. We missed you guys, and it’s good to be back. Thanks for being a Midwest Nerds true believer. More to come in 2013! Hearts and ponies – the Midwest Nerds Podcast.
There’s a lot of news to cover on this week’s show, even without the OMG MEGATON announcement from George Lucas and the new owners of Star Wars: Disney. That’s right, Star Wars is now owned by the house of Mickey and Co., and you’d better believe the nerds have thoughts on what this means for all of nerd kind.
As a program note, we’re a week behind on release charts as this show was recorded early last week, so we don’t mention a little game like HALO 4 is coming out this week. We’re aware Halo 4 is a thing, and will likely be playing it when we should be sleeping/ doing housework/ going to the bathroom.
