Ever since the release of Hogwarts Legacy, the editors of WANT, and also those of the Freakin’ Nerds podcast, have been on a rampage. Jeroen and Mark bounce around the floor like goofballs, where Dennis sits quietly humming in a corner. Plenty to talk about, then.
It’s why Hogwarts Legacy is the topic of our most recent podcast episode. We chat a bit about the brand new game, but also pull out all our knowledge about the Harry Potter franchise. Reason enough to listen, then.
Dutch podcast chats about Hogwarts Legacy
Hogwarts Legacy is so far the most talked about game of 2023. Not very strange, as Portkey Games gives Harry Potter fans exactly what they’ve really wanted for years: freedom in the Wizarding World.
Risky, we have to be that honest. On the one hand, with Harry Potter fans, like our own Mark and Jeroen, you can quickly get it right when you start working on an IP like this. On the other hand, they couldn’t be more critical. Do it wrong and you’re screwed. That’s practically what it comes down to.
Beautiful castle! Should they do something with it. (Image: Portkey Games / Warner Bros.)
Especially when you add in how gigantic the universe of Harry Potter is. The world of Hogwarts Legacy is incredibly large, so it must have all the details in order.
Plenty of material to talk about, so the editors of WANT.co.uk grab the opportunity with both hands. Check out the episode below:
Freakin’ Nerds: technology, pop culture and science
The editors of WANT just can’t stop talking about technology, pop-culture and science. In fact, it’s so bad that it sometimes drives many a colleague crazy. Reason enough to shove Jeroen, Dennis and Mark into a podcast studio and let them blow off some steam.
Passion for the three subjects is the reason they make Freakin’ Nerds. Based on current events, but completely timelessly inserted. Does Hogwarts Legacy come out they talk about Harry Potter, does Elon Musk drop a new Tesla is topic electric cars.
Freakin’ Nerds can be listened to via your favorite podcast app such as Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Spotify.
