Rated NA 52: Spoiler-free nerdery

We’re back together for an old-school style round-table recording. In the throws of ME3, we stay spoiler-free. We talk about the recent SWTOR summit, and the DC Comics site relaunch. We have reviews of I am Alive, Mass Effect: Infiltrator for iOS, and Matt’s Comic pick of the week. Finally, we discuss some spoiler-free first impressions of ME3, and whether or not there should be a Mass Effect MMO.

Rated NA 52


Hi, I’m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. I like good and bad sci-fi films/tv, synthesizers, and the retrofuture. I am primarily an Xbox gamer, but also do some PC and Switch gaming as well. By day, I am a research scientist, mostly in topics related to human-computer interaction and user experience. Before all of 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). Top 3 games? Let's go with System Shock 2, A Link to the Past, and Super Castlevania IV. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.

      This one is an old-school podcast in the spirit of our earlier years. It’s… um… like… organic, or something.

    Hopefully the Skype connectivity issue improves. Perhaps I’ll find out what GWJ is using.

    Great job as always guys. Will you guys be discussing the big uproar over ME3’s ending? It’s been difficult to read into it not having finished the game.

    Justin – We have some big Mass Effect stuff planned for the near future. Waiting for Matt to finish the campaign first.

    I REALLY like Matt’s idea of a large persistent world for just your buddies. Reminds me a lot of a minecraft server or old “Player towns” of Ultima Online. I hate how MMOs have veered away from true open worlds.

    Oh no! He said Ultima!

    I try to work Ultima into every conversation about games I have. I hope, that when I die, I wake up in Moonglow.
