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?
Bioware is known for excellent storytelling, and Mass Effect 3 does NOT disappoint. At it’s core the Mass Effect trilogy is all about heroism, family, and adventure. While other RPGs have made the promise of a “branching story line” based on player decision, none have come close to the level of complexity that the the Mass Effect franchise actually achieves. By now you’ve heard how it works, as the player progresses through the narrative he/she is forced to make a number of difficult game-changing decisions. I would venture to say that almost everyone that has played Mass Effect has had a slightly different experience, and that’s just incredible.
First off, thanks for allowing me this opportunity to write my first blog post for Nerd Appropriate! How exciting! Speaking of exciting things, I had the pleasure of attending the West Hollywood launch event for Mass Effect 3. Take Earth back!
So you’re thinking of going to San Diego Comic Con this year but have no idea what the heck is going on with ticketing and lodging? You’re not alone! Due to Comic Con’s ever-growing size, Comic Con is making attendees jump through some hoops in order to attend the biggest pop culture celebration on the planet. But first, check out the new trailer for Joss Whedon and Morgan Spurlock’s Comic Con: Episode IV a Fan’s Hope.
I grew up watching Growing Pains, and I was saddened last year by Boner’s death. There is something magical about the intro song written and composed by both John Bettis (Lyrics) and Steve Dorff (Music).. Imagine however if you will, what would happen if the whimsical joy Growing Pains… Came back from the dead.
Ahh San Diego Comic Con, it's a magical convention for nerds of all shapes and sizes. Comic Con 2012 will mark my 10th SDCC since first attending way back in 2000. Since the dawn of the new millennium I've seen the convention…
There is something afoot, we just don’t know quite what it is yet. Recent comments made by EA/Bioware seem to confirm that there are something “mass”ive coming our way in the form of a new Bioware flavored social experience.
Holly and the folks at Crabcat are in many ways one of us, massive fans of video games and nerd culture who just happen to be a whole lot better at costuming than many of us will ever be. Check out our conversation with Crabcat’s Holly Conrad!
You may know Aisha Tyler from Talk Soup, or perhaps her stand up comedy, but did you know Aisha is a big time nerd? The latest episode of her podcast “Girl on Guy” (careful when you Google that) feature’s Chuck’s Zachary Levi and contains just about as much nerdery as one of our OWN podcasts… and that’s really saying something.
