Nerdy Web Pages And Things That We Recommend

Return to Neeeeeeerrrrrrddddd

The title really speaks for itself.


http://www.watchtheguild.com/

Written by Felicia Day, (she plays Penny in Doctor Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog1) It's about a guild who plays an online game together and they meet in real life. You don't need to know a lot about online gaming to understand their jokes and references, so it's great for any nerd to see.

Another "webisode" series, it's about a guy who does nothing (or almost nothing) but play MMORPGs and his younger brother video tapes him as a school project. The main character's best friend growing up is into first person shooters, (a totally different kind of gaming from RPG's) and they have a strained relationship because their gaming interests are so opposite. This mentions World of War Craft a lot, and is based in Canada. Also, you don't have to be a WoW player to understand a lot of the references. It's easy to follow, and they just got their own tv show!

For Call of Cthulhu fans, this is called The adventures of Lil Cthulhu. (Cthulhu is, by the way, an extremely evil god who you can go completely insane just by looking at).

Based on the Japanese anime by Kazuki Takahashi, YuGiOh! Abridged was the first abridged series [Ali] was introduced to. It's hilarious and done by LittleKuriboh, who was also part of the DBZ Abridged party. Unlike the DBZ series, though, everything in this series is done by LittleKuriboh.


http://www.fanfiction.net

A website dedicated to fanfiction (the art of "borrowing" other people's characters and plot lines and transforming them into your own). A lot of the stuff on the site is a little amateur, but there is still potential to find interesting plot lines and different stories with characters you know and love.

I had this introduced to me via my online Bio100 class but it seems to be a collection of science resources with videos, lectures and possibly even Powerpoint information for all your science needs.
