Rated NA 99: Gentleman Podcast


The gang returns from PAX East 2013 with tales of gaming, friendship, and pax pox. In Hilary’s absence, an attempt at a gentleman podcast is made. We talk about our favorite games, from AAA to indie, from tabletop to mobile. Finally, you share your favorite, recent con memories with us in our NAQOTW.

Rated NA 99


Hi, I’m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. Back in the day my friends and I made “comedy” videos for a high school morning news program. Where was YouTube when you needed it? I’ve also played in various bands with fellow NA’er Matt since middle school. I was born with a game controller in my hand, and spend more than my fair share of time tinkering with computers and obsessing over the perfect home a/v setup. I’m also working on a PhD, enjoy watching sci-fi movies (the worse, the better), playing synthesizers, hanging out with friends, and eating mexican food. I grew up a hardcore Nintendo fanboy, subscribing to Nintendo Power at issue #1.. My favorite Star Was character is Admiral Ackbar, and Tim Rose is the nicest guy you can ever meet. I’m a James Bond nerd, and a retro-futurist (Yesterday’s tomorrow… Today!). I have an amazing wife and crazy puppy. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.

    You know, meeting devs at PAX that are super excited about the game made me buy games at Prime that I didn’t know about and might never have purchased. So I completely agree with you – studios shouldn’t discount the power of having people that love their work sharing it with others. In particular, the indie games — especially when it’s only a couple of devs. You can see their heart is in their work.

    Thanks for the enthusiasm about Don’t Starve, it sounds awesome. And stress-inducing.
