#62 Yesterday was Thursday (Thursday) – Midwest Nerds Podcast

March 23rd, 2011 by

We-we-we so excited to talk about the emotional breakdown Rebecca Black is going to have after reading all of the YouTube comments about her “hit” song Friday. We also so excited to discuss the freak out that the internet had over a BioWare employee giving Dragon Age II a good review on Metacritic. Speaking of which, everyone should go rate us in iTunes: We sure as hell did. That included five full stars and a glowing review. Whatcha gonna do about it Internet? Noth’n!

You know what else you’re not going to do anything about? Blue shells. Last week Hideki Konna, the man behind Mario Kart, defended the blue shell to Kotaku. This week the Midwest Nerds, four dudes who know nothing about making games, give their thoughts about that spiky little bastard. An email from Nick is good for a few laughs, where he discusses the emotional place he was in during a recent life decision (or cell phone purchase, but whatever). Also making the list this week is discrimination in gaming – we talk about a study done by the video games research center at MIT about hate speech in multiplayer gaming. It ties in nicely with an article Nick posted here a few weeks ago. Steve finishes things off by kick’n in the back seat with his Zombie Tip of the Week.

Until next week, keep Partyin’, Partyin’ (Yeah)
