EPISODE #131 – Bleeding Hearts and Chicken PAX

EPISODE #131 - Bleeding Hearts and Chicken PAX

This week, the Nerds re-cap the very best of this year’s PAX East – and have details about an all NEW PAX popping up in the “SouthSide”.

Also – is it frustration rather than violent imagery that leads gamers to IRL rage outs? New Research reported by the BBC seems to suggest this… the nerds discuss.

Nick’s on the show, so we talk about Windows and smartphones, and we just can’t stop talking about crowdfunding.

Did you know we’re on flipboard? Check out Midwest Nerds – The Magazine and read the stories we flipped this week!

EPISODE #130 - Fools and Liars

April Fools. Liars Day. Trust Nothing on the Web day. The nerds recap this year’s 2014 internet pranks – our favorites, and the ones that were just unfair.

Amazon and Android are now ready to fight Apple, Microsoft, Sony, Roku, and everyone else who wants to stream content to your TV.

Also – Steve pulls a “Burns-like” reversal of judgement on a game he very recently showed little to no interest in.

EPISODE #129 – DLC (Bonus Kickstarter Chat)

EPISODE #129 - DLC (Bonus Kickstarter Chat)

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.

MWN#129 – Oculus Miffed

April 3rd, 2014 by

Episode 129

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!

MWN # 128 – Storm’s Comin’

March 27th, 2014 by

Episode 128

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.
