Rated NA 76: No Mess Ups Allowed!!

Sorry Hilary fans, she’s not on this week’s episode due to a severe case of the ol’ conjunctivitis (see: poop eyes).  The male members of NA pull themselves away from Borderlands 2 just long enough to talk about their weekly adventures in nerdery.  Topics this week include Borderlands 2 (duh), Double Dragon Neon, fall television, and some more Google shenanigans.   We also read some of your incredible answers to this week’s NAQOTW: What Fall video games and television shows look good enough to have you order pizza and live in your pajamas?

Rated NA 76

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.

    Woo! Thank you so much for the smart phone game recommendations. Totally going to check out Monsters Ate My Condo. After giggling at hearing my name.

    I really think you guys have sold me on Borderlands 2. I wasn’t too excited about it (haven’t had much gaming time), but how much you adore it really makes me want to make time to play it.

    I didn’t know about XCOM until last month, and the more I hear about it the more excited I get about it. I feel like a lot of strategy games have fallen by the wayside, but they were always a genre that could keep me up and not blinking till the wee hours of morning. I didn’t get to play it at PAX, but I am keen on trying it out now!

    I’m kinda surprised you guys aren’t more excited about Dishonoured!

      Hey there Amanda! Dishonored is coming out at SUCH a bad time for me. Not only is it coming out the SAME DAY as XCOM (which I’m more excited about than anything), but also right around the same time as RE6 and some Borderlands 2 DLC. As for Borderlands, It’s an incredible experience with 4 players. At it’s core though, it’s still an FPS, so if you don’t like shooters you won’t like Borderlands 2 .
