On this special episode Ash and Scott take you through our interviews from San Diego Comic Con 2012. Ash meets up with David Gaider, the lead writer of BioWare’s Dragon Age, during preview night. Next, we talk to the busy ladies form Team Unicorn about Voltron and toy collecting. Finally, a fun chat with actress Courtenay Taylor (Jack from Mass Effect) at the BioWare base about voice acting… and Floaty Pens? We also bring you some audio from the Firefly 10th anniversary panel and press conference. Shiny.
Due to the sheer size of Comic-Con, some of the best cosplay on the planet can be seen within its hallowed walls. We figured we’d plop a little gallery here up on the site that highlights some of the coolest cosplay we got a chance to see this year.
Epic Games had a huge presence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con with both Gears of War: Judgement, and Fortnite showing off their goodies. Until this year’s SDCC, we knew very little of what Fornite was actually about, how it would look, or really, how in the heck it would play. Well, we have some great news for you, Fortnite looks super-slick and has the capacity to be more fun than any of us really deserve.
The story of Firefly is one of swashbuckling space heroes, evil mega-corporations, and above all else, friendship. Ten years after its premature cancellation, Firefly is more popular than ever with “Jane hat” wearing fans all over the ‘verse. We were incredibly honored to be asked to cover the 10th anniversary panel and subsequent press conference
While three of us from NA are indeed here at San Diego Comic-Con, you’ve probably noticed a distinct lack of updates on NerdAppropriate.com . Why? The answer is pretty simple, we’re enjoying the con!
As soon as we got into the door I turned to a few of the folks with me and said “Don’t get used to this, it’s about to get a lot more crowded in here.” Within about 15 minutes standard walking became the “con shuffle”, a sort of rhythmic zombie stride that is nowhere close to actual walking. It’s hard to believe there will be MORE people here tomorrow.
Last year we wrote up a guide for Comic-Con goers that featured some tips and hints designed to help folks have the best time possible. We’re super nice like that. Well, this year we’re expanding our list to include some more secrets that we’ve learned in our many years of attendance. It’s pretty special show and we want you to have the best time possible. Many many nerds died sweat to bring you this information. In years past I’ve traveled with folks that have gotten bloody from extreme chafing… true story. We call that the “Sizzle Crotch.”
The great thing about Nerd Appropriate (if I do say so myself) is that we come from a pretty diverse set of places. I play a decent amount of video games, but come nowhere near the epic amount of XBOX…
On this beast of a podcast we talk SDCC, Google IO, Amazon’s power outage, the return of the return of Jean Grey, consumer spending, AC3, and Yolo?! We review ME:EC, Walking Dead ep 2, Amazing Spider-Man, Newsroom, Strike Fleet Omega, and Resident Evil 6 demo. Finally, we talk about the game’s that you wish had their own extended cuts. Excellent!
*Takes a big deep breath* Do you smell that? That’s the smell of adventure, sweat, and 125,000 superfans in the same place at the same time! With Comic-Con only a week away, it’s time to transform NerdAppropriate.com into your favorite pit stop for Comic-Con news and adventures.
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. Take a quick look at the video game related programming for Thursday and Friday at SDCC 2012.
