Nerd News: Fast Five, Mass Effect 3, X-Men art and more

Vol. 1, Issue 24

Why, hello again friends!

Biggest nerdy news of my week is the trailer for the third game in the Mass Effect series.


Mass Effect 1 and 2 are the only video games I've ever "beaten." I love the gameplay, the story, my character ... I can't wait for the third one to be released!

I love these colored X-Men illustrations.


In movie news:

These TV shows-turned-children's books would make great additions to any nerd-sary (Get it?!).

Some movie trailers for you to peruse:

Fast Five (!!!)

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen


Red Riding Hood

Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides

And, this isn't a movie trailer, but a wicked mashup of Edgar Wright's films.

These WWII Bounty Hunters have a bit of a steampunk feel to them. (Thanks, Wes!)

In TV news:

This is an interesting timeline of the Royal Family using actors who've portrayed them throughout the years.

Threadless has some great designs, but this one takes the cake:


We have a large (2ft) AT-AT which lives in our kitchen. It's name is Dog, so this shirt really speaks to me.

Take a look at the best Shakespeare "riffs" in science fiction and fantasy.

And finally, a fitting holiday image:



  1. Fantastic nerd news once again, Mandy. And I love that AT-AT tshirt.

  2. So much I could comment on, but I'm going to focus on the Red Ridinghood trailer. I hadn't even heard that this existed but it looks beautiful.

  3. H-Thank you! <3

    DT-It's directed by Catherine Hardwicke (who did the first Twilight movie) so it'll have a pretty gritty feel. I'm sure it's going to be quite unique.
