The Freeplay Podcast, a conversation between a Southern Baptist, a hippie emo father of millions, and a retired Disney princess about the Love Thy Nerd community, the games they play, and the odd interview with those who make the games they play
State of Lame 2021
We’re used to seeing some seriously big game announcements in press conferences held at E3 and other conventions. With COVID and the lack of large conferences, the focus now more than ever has been delegated to shorter online broadcasts like Nintendo’s Treehouse, Playstation’s State of Play, and Xbox Showcase. We had high hopes for week’s Playstation State of Play, and…. It just wasn’t what we expected.
Nerdom on the Small Screen
We’ve seen nerd dom make its way to the big screen through the Lord of the Rings, the MCU, and much more. But recently we’ve seen a shift in nerdy adaptations of things that we love arriving on the small screen on platforms like Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, and Amazon Prime. What are some of the best examples that we’ve seen? Are there any negatives to this shift? We discuss this and more this week on the Free Play podcast.
CD Projekt Wrecked
The latest in video game news this week once again concerns CD Projekt Red who had source codes for Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3, an unreleased version of The Witcher 3, and Gwent the card game stolen and held at ransom. In a… somewhat poorly written ransom note, the thieves demanded payment to which CD Projekt Red refused. And a few days later these source codes ended up at an auction on the dark web. What does this mean for the games industry?
The State-ia of Stadia
The news media was quick to declare the end of Google Stadia only two years after the launch. With the studio head stepping down and developers looking for new jobs, things just don’t look good. But is that all there is to this story? Just another end to another platform? What about Google’s claims that Stadia will still go on using third party releases? We talk about the future of Stadia and more this week on the Free Play podcast.
Tesla and The Witcher 3?
Tesla is known for being an innovative brand, with Elon Musk constantly coming up with new ideas for infinity and beyond. Literally. This week a story on Tesla boasted that the Model S and Model X vehicles come equipped with gaming hardware powerful enough to power The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Can this be? Is it even safe? And what other in-car tech ideas can we come up with? That’s what we want to talk about this week.
Episode 110 | 2020 Game of the Year
2020 has been a trip of a year, and the annual Video Game Award nominees are a testament to that. Did we agree with the list or could it have been altered just a little? Well, that's what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play podcast.

Love the podcast — funny and relevant to today’s nerd culture! Topical discussion about video and board games that is fun to listen to even if you don’t play the game they are discussing 😇
Inspiring and Hilarious!
I stumbled upon Love Thy Nerd after looking for more podcast from organizations like Geeks Under Grace and it does not disappoint! More importantly it really is a funny and helpful podcast delving into nerdom and doing so for the glory of God. Awesome podcast that I truly do love, keep up the good work nerds.
