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
Free Play 133 | It'sa ME... a STARLORD!
Everyone has been talking about the moment where Nintendo announced that Chris Pratt was going to be the voice of Mario. Yes, MARIO! And reactions have been mixed. We did not see that one coming. With Chris Pratt joined by a host of other A-list celebrities, what do we think this movie could look like? That’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play podcast.
Free Play EP 132 | Playstation Hot or Not?
Playstation held their September showcase this week and 2 out of 3 of us were pretty excited by what we saw. If you think about it, you can probably guess who was less than enthused. Between announcements of new Marvel games, a Star Wars remake, and a look at God of War Ragnarok, the showcase proved to be pretty exciting overall, and that’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play podcast.
Free Play EP 131 | Gaming Gets Banned
This week, China implemented a new ban on online games. This means that everyone under the age of 18 is only allowed to play for ONE hour on Fridays, weekends, and special holidays. Why would they do this? Besides parents complaining about gaming addiction are there bigger reasons for the ban? What do gamers think of this restriction and what does it mean for the future of gaming in China?
Free Play EP 130 | Online Concerts
Have you been to one of those concerts in games? You know, the ones in Fortnite and Travis Scott or Marshmello? Minecraft is also no stranger to hosting concerts in-game either and Roblox is having Lil Nas X perform in November and is including some limited edition emotes and items. Are video games the future of live music? Also, Kate flys into a rage as we discuss it all, this week on the Free Play podcast.
Episode 29 | Google's Super Secret Plan
Does Google have a super-secret plan? Throughout the course of the Epic Games vs. Apple lawsuit, a 70-page document from Google about a grand dream of the “world's largest game platform” was discovered and shared. While some of it was redacted, there were still some interesting things to be learned from the leak. Is this plan even a possibility? Even if it's possible, is it a good idea? That’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play podcast.
Free Play EP 128 | Nintendies
Guess what nerds, Kate is back from her wilderness exploring. Just in time for some exciting news from Nintendo! The Nintendo Indie World Showcase brought some interesting games to the table. From the weapon dating simulator Boyfriend Dungeon, to Eastward: the pixel-esque puzzle game, to Kate’s personal favorite, Garden Story where you play as a grape trying to unify a community, the showcase brought something for everyone whether they’re into indie games or not. That’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play podcast.
A funny group!
Love the work going on with Love Thy Nerd and Matt, Bubba, and Kate bring a refreshing and family-friendly take on trending nerdy topics.
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.
