Rated NA 54: Winning at life

Since none of us won the mega lottery, we’re back! We talk about fan-made Wing Commander, KickStarter, Harry Potter, New comic-based TV cartoons, SEGA’s woes, and the new Superman. We take a look at Angry Birds in Space, (now with gravitational pull), and give early impressions of Kid Icarus uprising for the 3DS. Finally, we look ahead to convention season and talk about your most anticipated releases this year. Special thanks to Jimmy Hinson (aka Big Giant Circles) for rejoin music from the album Legacy, featuring unused material originally intended for Mass Effect 2. Awesome!

Rated NA 54


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.

    Good call on Angry Birds Space, Matt. I had checked out from those games too because they were all the same, but this one is fun again.

    Looking forward to some Bioware and Borderlands 2 news from PAX!
