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.
With snow disrupting our plans, we hold it down and chat about events of the past week including Steam news, VR headsets, free games, HBO, Community, and Avengers. Plenty of sidebar conversations and tales of shenanigans from 20+ years of friendship.
Miellyn Barrows makes an unexpected appearance on the podcast as Matt’s internet implodes. We talk about Far Cry 3, Borderlands 2 DLC, the Dead Space 3 demo, and what Epcot was like in the late ’80s… just go with it. You let us know what character deserves their own real-life monument. The road to PAX East starts now!
