Today marks a pretty special day for Mass Effect Fans everywhere, N7 Day! November 7th will (hopefully) forever be associated with one of the great space operas of our generation, Mass Effect. (Details)
October 2012 will no doubt go down in video game history as one of the most release heavy months of all time. The funny thing is, it’s not just the quantity of October’s releases, it’s the diversity and quality
Today we talk about the exit of Cliffy B, Fallout...MMO?, Mass Effect 3 Retaliation, and a new web series for some indie game called Halo 4. We review the new Resident Evil 6, Looper and revisit an old stand by…
We appreciate games with great writing and are happy to have author Patrick Weekes on episode 75 of the Rated NA Podcast. Mr. Weekes will be joining us tomorrow from the wilds of Canada to discuss his brand new novel “The Palace Job”, which is available now on Amazon.com. If you have any questions for Mr. Weekes about Mass Effect, Bioware, writing, or The Palace Job, please ask here or send us a message on Twitter @NerdAppropriate.
Like sneaky witches from the wilds, Bioware announced today that Dragon Age III has been in the works for almost two years and is being built on a customized version of the Frostbite 2 engine (see: pretty). While details about DA III are almost non existent, we quickly came up with some things that we’d love to see from one of our favorite franchises. Behold a list!
An alloy is described as “A metal made by combining two or more metallic elements, esp. to give greater strength or resistance to corrosion.” This weekend, by promoting two or more of your characters in ME3MP you can bolster the war effort and help save the whole freakin’ universe! On top of all that universe saving mumbo-jumbo, you’ll also receive a commendation pack filled with goodies as well as a victory pack if 50,000 characters total are promoted. As always, if they keep making it and we’ll keep playing it. We have a crush on ME3MP.
Unleash the Leviathan! From the moment players got their hands on ME3 they’ve been clamoring for DLC that delves into the history of the franchise’s “big bad”, The Reapers. Moments ago at the EA summer showcase, Mass Effect fans got their wish. The Mass Effect 3 Leviathan DLC is coming very soon, and it looks to be filled with all new locations, dialog, and adventures.
The Mass Effect 3 bi-monthly challenges continue this weekend with Operation Overwatch. Unlike July’s Operation Broadside, Overwatch appears as though it should be easier goal to accomplish. Simply extract your team on any difficulty with one of the new N7 classes, and you’re all set. The allied goal is a combined extraction of 800,000 individual players on any difficulty level… even bronze.
When we set out to create our very first official Nerd Appropriate community game night, we didn’t really know what to expect. In all honesty we were just looking for an excuse to meet some new players, hang out with friends, and shoot some virtual bad guys. We’re elated to say that our community game night went better than we could have ever anticipated. With dozens of players from all over the world signing up to have some fun, we were able to run five eight person squads for over four hours with new players filtering in and out!
In the immortal words of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air “WELCOME TO EARTH!” Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer is a total blast and I’m happy to say that’s it’s clearly here to stay. The latest free multiplayer expansion, simply titled “Earth”, allows players to participate in the brutal battle for Earth in three all new locations. It’s a ton of fun, and we want to play with YOU this Saturday night (7/21). Oh yeah, we *might* even have some extra special guests joining us… more on that later.
We here at Nerd Appropriate fell in love with Courtenay’s voice acting after her stellar portrayal of Subject 13/Jack in both Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3. It took a special actor to pull off Jack’s soft-on-the-inside persona, and that actor was Courtenay Taylor.
The presence of electronic gaming has grown each and every year at San Diego Comic-Con International, and this year is the absolute biggest year yet. SDCC will host a number of panels revolving around some of the hottest video game franchises in existence, and we’ll sure do our best to provide the best coverage possible.
