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.
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.
[HOSTS: Ash, Scott, and Matt] This week the gang takes a look at Watch Dogs, and the indie pixel-shooter, Teleglitch. We try to figure out what is going on with Ant Man, recap the WWDC keynote, and look to Hulu to pick up another season of Community. Finally, we preview E3 and what gamers and what to look forward to in the back half of 2014.
