Rand(Nerds); Episode 11

This episode we move fully into the 21st century by doing our first livesteam. It will be a cleaner podcast as Luke is banned from swearing. We discuss Final Fantasy 7 with Nick probably being the only gamer in the world who hasn’t played it and managed to miss the Deus Ex: HR homage to it. Luke discusses the Japanese mech game Gundam Breaker. We also talk about how Duke Nukem needs to mature and game for people who like smashing things with Lego Lord of the Rings. We look back fondly at Gamespy and discuss its shutdown, we also learn Nick is easily scared and Adam can’t tell his ovis aries from his Capra aegagrus hircus.
