Nerds Without Pants Episode 219: We're Comin' At Ya!

Pro tip: never let Justin DJ your wedding.

Well howdy, partner! Nerds Without Pants is back, and Mike Fallek as back. So you know what that means: a massively meandering show that loses control almost immediately. Enjoy! Also, why did I start this by typing “howdy, partner”?

Cage Match:

Chrono Cross takes Dead Space in a somewhat difficult match.

Area 51 gets into the ring, sees Mario, and is like, "OH, COME ON!" before storming out of the ring in a huff.

Final Fantasy III Review Rewind

When Final Fantasy VII appeared in the late 90s, my initial reaction was that of shock at the significant gulf in sequels for the US. It was a harsh reality to learn that, of the three mainline Final Fantasy releases we received, Japan had double that number by the start of the PlayStation era. As time marched on, Square (now Square Enix) eventually released the sequels we had missed. Meanwhile, I’ve been playing a nearly 30-year-long game of catch-up since 1997. A particular blind spot for me was Final Fantasy III- the last one to be developed for the Famicom. However, after finally getting around to playing it, I now have a new appreciation for this long-running series.
