Rated NA 84: Gem in the Eye

The gang recaps the VGAs, Humble Bundle is awesome-er, Spellwood is a mobile gem, and we get our hands dirty with AC3 multiplayer. Finally, your thoughts and impressions about the award show’s winners and losers. Its more fun than finding magical games to put into the eye sockets of statues.

Rated NA 84

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.

    I’m biased with you guys about ME2 not getting game of the decade. When it comes down to it? Mass Effect 2 was the game changer for me – it made me insanely passionate about video games again. I’ve always been a gamer, but ME2 was a mack truck. I got obsessed about it, I became a fangirl over it (I found out what fanfiction was because of it oops). And I can still play it, I still love playing it. If I want to try and get a friend into gaming, it’s the game I’ll put in their hands. It doesn’t sound like I was alone in that?

    I don’t know enough people who feel that way about Half Life 2.
