Rated NA 51: We ride on the backs of Elcor

On this pre-ME3 podcast, we ask for your outlandish predictions of the highly anticipated game. We also look ahead to PAX East and ComicCon. Assassin’s Creed 3 has a revolutionary new setting, and Windows 8 gets an Xbox Companion. We review Squids on Android, Awake on NBC, and Matt’s Comic PotW. Listen now, it’s as easy as getting your space game out of a tree!

Rated NA 51

 

Scott

Hi, I’m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. I like good and bad sci-fi films and tv, pho, and the retrofuture. I am primarily an Xbox gamer, but also do some PC and Wii U gaming as well. By day, I am a research scientist, mostly in topics related to human-computer interaction and user experience. Before all this, fellow NA co-founder Matt and I played music together in various bands. I also used to make "comedy" videos for my high school morning news program before there was a place to post them online. Favorite Star Wars character? Admiral Ackbar. Best Bond era? Timothy Dalton (Craig a close second). Game of all time? Maybe System Shock 2. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.

    Always hilarious, but Scott and Matt’s voice qualities were a little off

      We recorded on a different setup, and the VoIP we use (which shall remain nameless) took a big dump on us during this one. I’m just happy to get it done by ME launch.

    I also learned something today. The wishlist item about saving the Rachni queen in ME1, only to hope she pays you back in ME3, is my Chekhov’s Gun.

    My galactic readiness level is flaccid and disappointed (what else is new lately with BioWare?):

      Yikes, that’s kinda brutal if you don’t have access to 1.) your old console or 2.) your old ME2 save files.

      That being said, if I did have to “go back in time” and replay ME2, I’d make sure to kill each and every single turret-spamming Cerberus combat engineer I came across as a favor to my future self. Now THAT’S brutal.

        Yeah man, I gave my fiancé my old Xbox and picked up a gears box. So now, I can upload that saved game to the cloud and get it to my new Xbox… But because it’s not the same box I have to start a new game. So much for that perfect ending. At least I get to be femshep and lead a perimenopausal death squad against the reapers. But yes, very disappointed in bioware. All that engineering to make your previous choices affect the game and, for a lot of folks, it doesn’t matter.

          You should move the files over to your new Xbox using the transfer cable if that’s possible. I’m sure we can get to the bottom of this
