PolyNerdic Plays: Days Gone (Part 5)

Jumping back into the post-apocalypse with our favorite drifter Deacon St. John.

This installment takes place a little after part 4, I’ve accomplished some tasks since you last rode with Deacon and I. I collected the knife and Boozer had emergency surgery among other things.

This episode sees me sneak around some more NERO guards and scientists to listen to their conversation. Learning a little more about what changed the world…or at least what appears to be the nature of the virus.

Later on Deacon and Iron Mike follow a massive horde to the caves I had previously explored and hatch a plan to deal with the constant stream of hordes in the valley.

The installment ends mid-mission and later in the week I’ll post the segment that immediately follows it.

Some Things End, Others Reboot Again and Again: The OrNERDnary Podcast #103

Game of Thrones is over, Terminator is back yet again and a holiday weekend is here.

Those are the big talking points of this week’s episode of The OrNERDnary Podcast.

A long running show comes to a largely unsatisfying conclusion and leaves me wondering how the books will eventually end.

A franchise from my youth keeps coming back again and again much like it’s titular character.

A video game title that was once the biggest thing every year is going back to the story that made it what it was and people are laughing at the title.

And a few other things get discussed before ending on a somber note of reflection.

The Night Time is the Wright Time

I really wanted to stream something tonight before bed to help kick off the holiday weekend.

I also wanted to play Phoenix Wright again since it had been about a month.

And thus The Night Time is the Wright Time was born.

This “installment” take place at the end of chapter 3 of the game, the closing moments of the Will Powers case, an actor on a children’s tv show accused of murdering his co-star.

I’m not sure how often I’ll return to this but given my love of both streaming and Phoenix Wright it’s always possible we’ll come back around for more.

Got Bored, Have Some Wrestling

So the other evening my beautiful nerdy better half went to bed about an hour before I was ready to do so and that left me with some time to kill.

While it wasn’t time to do anything full fledged, like a live stream of Days Gone or anything it was enough time to run two quick battle royales to help set up something I have planned for my Saturday morning.

So all that said, ┬áhere are the two battle royale matches to crown #1 contenders for the PNPW World and Women’s Titles.

Enjoy them free of commentary as they weren’t from a live stream and are just recorded clips straight off the PS4.

Stay tuned to PolyNerdic.com and the Twitch channel this weekend for more of this silly stuff as well as other things I have planned as well.

PolyNerdic Plays: Days Gone (Part 4)

Deacon and Boozer pick up and move on to a new area of the map due to Boozer’s worsening infection.

Initially trying to steal the meds Boozer needs, Deacon is caught red handed and old “friends” convince him to bring Boozer in for actual treatment.

Begrudgingly Deacon agrees to hang around and help out until Boozer gets better.

This is also the 3rd and final installment of the series of back to back to back clips I recorded over a week ago.

PolyNerdic Plays: Days Gone Part 3

Deacon takes a trip down memory lane to a better time, learning about medicinal flowers with his wife.

This segues into a lengthy bit of hide and seek with a swarm of freakers that have made their home near where Deacon needs to pick some plants for Boozer.

The back half of the episode has Deacon taking on a couple Ripper camps in order to make the area safer as well as save a young girl from the murderous cultists.

Can Someone Make a Petition to End Angry Fan Petitions?: The OrNERDnary Podcast #102

This week’s episode of The OrNERDnary Podcast has us revisiting the always lovely topic of fandoms turning toxic and entitled.

Game of Thrones is winding down, the finale coming Sunday the 19th and with the passing of each episode the fans of the show are getting more and more dissatisfied with how the show is going.

And for the most part I’m right there with them as far as my opinion of many things about the show is concerned.

Where they lose me is the petition to have the entire final season remade to suit their tastes. Has the final season been bad? In my opinion, yes it has been the worst of the show’s run. Do I want it remade? Nope.

As I write this, the petition is nearing 1 million signatures and I can’t help but shake my head at the situation.

Listen and hear me explain my personal dissatisfaction with the show and some talk about other big finales that people were unhappy with such as Seinfeld, How I Met Your Mother, Mass Effect 3.

I also briefly touch on what I’d been up to during the last week and a few nerdy news items that caught my attention.

This week’s show is short, to the point and entirely unscripted.

See you next week for more.
