Rated NA 94


Hi, Iā€™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.

        What the hell is Rated NE.

  • I know it’s a week late, but my NAQOTW answer is the Krogan Warlord on Therum when trying to rescue Liara. I have just started an Insanity run and god damn that bastard is hard to kill. I’ve got Wrex and Garrus with me (Garrus is worse than useless) and I can get it down to me and wrex vs the Krogan – but once that dude starts charging, it’s count down the seconds to death šŸ™

    Saren by comparison is a wet blanket – you need sabotage, damping and singularity/lift – hit him with the first 2 to stop his tech & biotics, shield recharge abilities, then singularity/lift to get him in the air and defenseless and unload everything on him :).


    • I wonder if Kaiden would fare any better than Garrus there.

    Ash, life is about working together. Let your friends help. Unless they will hold it over you forever.
