Rand(Nerds); Episode 129 – Christmas Special 2019

Welcome to Episode 129, our 2019 Christmas Special

Skazz has still been fighting the internet and making our favorite dictator Kim in The Sims 4. Turns out he doesn’t like Donald Trump, and has some surprising stories in his Sim Life.

TheSuffolkRam has been suffering a pretentious developer in Awkward Dimension Redux. A game that feels like the author watched some Unity tutorials, copied them and published them.

We then move onto our Christmas Activities: First starting with ‘letters’ from our ‘listeners/viewers’, plus we look at our Steam libraries and how much of our lives we need to dedicate to finishing them.

Finally, we move onto our Game of the Year, We Look through our games list from the previous year and pick out a few Honorable mentions (Skazz has a weird definition of ‘honorable mention’). We discuss our shortlist and make our final choices.

Notes:

Make your own dictator in The Sims 4

The best of teen pretentious in Awkward Dimension Redux

Rand(Nerds); Episode 123

Welcome to Episode 123

TheSuffolkRam has returned from the muddy fields of his Land Rover show, he talks about how segregation is alive and well in car shows and the new defender and some stupid ‘features’ of his car.

Ram has finally moved on from We Happy Few and moved onto underwater survival sim Subnautica. Previously discussed by Bard many years ago, we discuss turning fish to bottles and drowning people. Also how Ram has no idea how to make a room.

Skazz gives his final thoughts on Daemon X Machina and how flying ruins everything, and what he wants from a mech game, he also talks about Astral Chain.

He then talks about the awful port of Dragonquest to the switch and the quality of the sprites compared to the original

We also discuss Jesus’s nationality and who make the tea on Elvis’s private island, region locking plus how mad divers are.

Notes:

Love 4×4’s? perhaps like Ram you’ll fall in love with the new Defender

Avoid the leviathan in Subnautica

Fancy being terrified by hydroelectric dams? here a selection of videos of them

Skazz refreshes his game from last time Daemon X Machina and Astral Chain

Which Dragon Quest looks better? The new switch version, or the original NES

Yes, you can play Doom in a browser
