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.
his year is going to be pure grade-A madness. It turns out Katrina “Action Chick” Hill, who is known for her kick-ass SDCC panels, will once again be bringing the fire to this year’s SDCC. Katrina’s panel this year will feature tons of creative ladies from including some of the familiar faces we’ve featured here at NA: Abbie Heppe, Milynn Sarley, and Holly Conrad
It’s that time again. The mother of all nerd conventions is less than a month away and while information is a bit scarce as to which of your favorite shows will be in attendance (all of them), we do have some early panel information that popped up on both TV.Com and TV Guide. With Comic-Con growing each and every year it’s a safe bet that your favorite television series will probably make an appearance to plug their upcoming season or to just have some fun.
E3 madness continues and Scott goes on a rant. News about Skyrim, 38 Studios, WWDC, Nerd HQ, and Max Payne mobile. Hilary reviews Prometheus, Matt reviews Snow White, and Ash recaps the latest Game of Thrones season. Finally, we hear your impressions from the past weeks E3 shenanigans. Weeeeuuuu.
Believe it or not, somewhere one Earth Marvel’s Ant man is somebody’s favorite Avenger. With Avenger mania sweeping the planet (and draining wallets everywhere) Marvel Studios is fully aware that Ant Man has the potential to be HUGE (see what I did there). Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright will soon be bringing us the misadventures of Hank Pym, also known as the Ant Man. Considering Mr. Wright has consitantly given us cinematic gold, we have high hopes for the Ant Man franchise. Now, last we heard there is no solid plan to bring Edgar Wright’s Ant Man into the current Avengers film universe, but if we whine enough we may get our way. More importantly however are the following questions. Who exactly is the Ant Man? And, who is the perfect actor to portray the super genius Hank Pym?
