World of Warcraft Communities

There has been a lot of talk about Blizzard and Activision lately and the news just seem to keep being grim when it comes to that company. So it was nice to find this article. One thing that people probably didn’t think about when they were developing World of Warcraft, or started playing the game for that matter, was the huge community that would follow. Myself have been very lucky to get a group of…

Weekly Podcast Roundup 4

It’s podcast week number four with two fresh podcast ripe for harvesting. The Blue Recluse – Episode 218: It’s A Hard One We had to cover the recent lay offs at Activision Blizzard though it wasn’t really a topic we really wanted to cover. We like to cover fun and positive topics and besides the lay offs there were a few cool things to talk about. Listen for yourself. Nerd This! – Issue #22: Gaming…

TBT: 4 Producers, 1 Sample

Hey, I guess Throwback Thursday is still a thing. So here’s mine. It’s only 10 months old, but still deserve some air time in my opinion. I love the idea about different people getting one task and the same materials, just to see what they come up with each. So that’s what Andrew Huang does here. They pick one sample of a song, and then they each make a song with that. And the results…

Nerd This! Teaser for Issue #21

It’s teaser time. We are yet again focused on an amazing Danish actor and what I have in common with him. It’s made in Adobe After Effect with a lot of images put together in Adobe Photoshop. This one I’m quite happy with overall. There’s always things to improve, but out of the three we’ve done so far, this is the one that feels the most complete. If I had to point at something I…

Beth Roars Reacts to Pisces by Jinjer

I love watching reaction videos to Pisces by Jinjer. If you don’t know why, just watch this video. I’ve seen quite a few reaction videos and my main complaint is that people rarely really react and makes the idea with a reaction video redundant. I’ve also seen quite a few different people react to this particular song (for a good reason), but one of the best reactions is by far this one with Beth Roars.…

Nerd This! – Issue #21: The Epic Shop At the Nerd This! Podcast we jumped into the subject of the new Epic Store that is going to be a direct competitor to Steam. We touched on a few different topics like…

Impressions of The Division 2

I felt so lucky getting into The Division 2 private beta last week and was looking forward to testing out the game. But I was only able to do the first bit of the play through, running from the starting location to your base of operations and then I got hit by this screen: I tried reinstalling, repairing, and a lot of other things I found by googling, but neither helped. So my experience with…

Nerd This! Teaser for Issue #20

Another week, another teaser. This week we’re following Michael’s narration of Thom driving down a road and to avoid Game of Thrones spoilers, he drives through a corn field. It’s made in Adobe After Effect with a lot of images put together in Adobe Photoshop. There’s one thing I would improve of, then it’s the scene seen from above in the cornfield. I’d like the pattern to be a bit more visible to strengthen the…

Funky Thursday with Marc Rebillet

I have recently discovered Loop Daddy aka Marc Rebillet. With his mac, midi keyboard and loop station he creates amazing comedic songs… on the fly! That’s right. Everything is improvised and made up on the spot. And I love it! Tonight he is playing live at ‘DR Koncerthuset’ in Denmark and I sadly don’t have a ticket. So unless he is streaming live from the venue, I guess I have to be satisfied with some…
