Believe it or not, but Episode #129 could have been EVEN longer. This is an extended conversation about Kickstarter, A Buyout, and what happens when a company doesn’t need the “little people” who helped get it off the ground.
Note – as this audio was recorded on a show break, it’s more “raw” than our usual show.
This week, the web was angered – and it is folly to anger the almighty internetz. The wrath of the LOLcats is terrible and swift. Zuck and company at “The Facebook” purchase Oculus Rift, The Colbert Report comes under fire for an out-of-context tweet, and we can’t help talking about Titanfall again… at least a little.
This week’s Midwest Nerds Podcast may severely be lacking in Steven related content, but Viva-la-Baker – Nick hath returned! It’s the Midwest Nerds Podcast!
This week on the show – Steve Nelson breaks down why “Heroes of the Storm” is the next game you should be paying attention to… and also gloats that he gets to play the game before Jason and Joel. Does the MOBA genre have room for the likes of Jim Raynor and the Lord of Terror?
Also this week – Google is officially throwing it’s hat into the smartwatch arena, and Jason is OF COURSE excited about this… Joel just rolls his eyes.
The Midwest Nerds Podcast – Have we told you lately that we love you?
Titanfall has finally… uh… fallen – and after being totally amped for the game, Burns still hasn’t picked up his copy? Reason? We need YOU – Midwest Nerds Nation – to lend us your Titans! Are you playing the game on PC? Head to facebook.com/midwestnerds and leave your Origin/ Steam info. Standby for Titanfall.
Also – Dark Souls II is out now, and Steve is the master of Dark Souls trollololololol. Humble Bundle for Android 4 contains a game that’s sort of like “Flappy Bird”, if “Flappy Bird” weren’t the worst thing ever. And Google Drive is more affordable than ever.
Drop your Titan on the field, and drop the Midwest Nerds podcast in your ears.
