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.
I was ushered into a small theatre this morning, complete with four grim looking bouncers (yes really), to take a brief look at Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and walked away incredibly impressed. Ubisoft catches a lot flack for releasing Assassin’s creed (almost) annually, but I’m happy to say Assassin’s Creed IV appears to be something entirely new and innovative.
Scott and Ash delve into Telltale’s Game of Thrones first episode, while Matt checks out the new Hearthstone: Gnomes vs. Goblins Expansion. Also we talk Far Cry 4, Newsroom, Cards Against Humanity, HBO, and Marvel.
Nerd HQ strikes again! When Chuck’s Zachary Levi asked us all on Twitter a few weeks ago who we’d like to see at the Nerd-HQ, I quickly replied “Firefly!”. I figured since Zach was good friends with co-star Adam Baldwin..it could happen.. and wouldn’t you know it? It did!
