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
It Remakes No Sense
Rumor has it that the Last of Us is getting a remake. Not a remaster, they already did that. But a remake. For a game that came out in 2013. We have questions. Questions like… WHY, WHAT FOR, do we need this? Bubba and I try to get to the bottom of this remake idea that makes absolutely no sense.
Games in the Time of COVID
It’s hard to believe that it’s been about a year since COVID really began to take over our lives. How has the pandemic affected the video and board game industries? Some games have released well during this unprecedented time and some games just.. Didn’t spark joy.That’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.
Free Play 119 | The Future of Discord
Microsoft has had several failed acquisition attempts of other companies like Tiktok and Pinterest as well as the flop of their streaming service, Mixer. But Microsoft isn’t giving up and is trying to expand its reach by acquiring Discord for the small sum of at least $10 BILLION dollars. Yes. BILLION. Do we think Discord would be a Microsoft exclusive service? Would Discord be better off partnering with Amazon? That’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.
Episode 118 | Scat-egorical References
What’s the best way to get nerds up and moving? Giving them free games in exchange for steps. The new app Hero Trainer rewards your steps by giving you gift cards to the Playstation Store, Steam, Nintendo eShop, Google Play, and tons of other nerdy places. I also share a story of an… experience I had at the doctor’s office. That’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play podcast.
Episode 117 | Two Ways To Do Kickstarter
It is obvious how much communication between a campaign and its backers can impact the overall success of the Kickstarter itself and we dig into it this week on the Free Play podcast.
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.
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.
