Rand(Nerds); Episode 21

In this episode, which features a new angle for our video viewers thanks to some new hardware, we discuss Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze. Skazz and Ram have a strange game swap when Skazz learns the joy of long distance driving in a big truck and develops road manners, and Ram starts with minecraft and how he performs massive land clearance to increase his sheep empire. Bard looks at the slightly disappointing Hyrule Warriors and a new Gauntlet game. We find out who’s the most obsessed with steam, with perhaps some surprising conclusions. Plus, how Skazz has been banned before starting a game

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.

Notes
