Love is a wonderful thing, and as the saying goes, “first comes love, then comes marriage…”
Weddings are always beautiful, but there is something extra special about when nerds wed and celebrate their nerdiness as part of their special day. There’s been a ton of nerdy weddings, so it was hard to pick just five, but we did it! Check out five awesomely nerdy weddings HERE at Nerdy But Flirty!

Part of dealing with people in general means that you will have to deal with some unsavory folks every now and then. This is merely a statement of fact. However, the volume with which you meet this kind of individual seems a bit higher when dealing with the online world, likely due in no small part to the fact that the internet is like alcohol: it can bring out who people really are and lower their inhibitions. The internet also is somewhat anonymous and can create a feeling of anonymity. You can often join a group, get what you want out of it, and then never speak to any of those people ever again. Many people, in fact, create a distance between their online persona (as part of a forum group, an online game guild or clan, or whatever else), never giving out any personal details and being willing to disengage from them once they are ready to move on to other things.
Recently, a guy whom I will call Indie appeared on The Gaming Goddess podcast. Indie actually first contacted me earlier this year to tell me about an indie game he had helped create and wanted to get some good press for. I played the game, was mildly entertained by it, and reviewed it with a decently favorable write-up. A bit of time passed and he began to email me casually, talking about some of the projects I had been working on and how much he appreciated them, and then brought up the idea of wanting to come on the podcast in order to talk about the indie gaming world, game design in general, and the problems he saw with game journalism. While I felt that he was a bit forward with his request, I initially otherwise saw nothing wrong with it, discussed it with Rob, and we decided to let him on. The episode was pretty good and we got some good feedback about it, though a few people did not care for the guest very much and thought he came across as arrogant and overbearing. But, whatever – that’s not the point. Again, a little time passed and then he started to get a bit more personal with his emails. He talked a little about his work, his past, and then moved on to asking me about sexual kinks, fetishes, relationship beliefs, and other things. He eventually went on to write about his own sexual fantasies regarding voyeurism and crossed a line by saying that he wanted me to send him a bunch of information and personal photographs. Obviously, that wasn’t an acceptable request to me, and I felt kind of used that he would even ask me to send him anything like that. I mean, let’s face it: outside of some casual e-mails and him being on the podcast one time, I didn’t even know the guy. What the heck was the deal there?
Before I begin, I would just like to state that PC gaming is still very new to me! I’m more of a console girl, but I’m trying to branch out and give some new genres of games a go, which is why I chose Anomaly 2.
“In the years following the invasion of Earth in 2018, the planet is overrun by alien machines. Humankind is on the verge of extinction. Banded together in huge convoys, they search the frozen tundra for food and supplies. Since the war, the roles have been reversed: now our species seems to be the Anomaly on a machine-controlled planet. Your convoy, Commander, is called Yukon.”
Some video game logic for you!
Twenty minutes into Star Trek: Into Darkness, and I knew I wanted to watch this movie again.
I almost hesitated to write this review, wondering if I was extremely biased by my love of Star Trek. This couldn’t possibly be one of the best movies I’ve ever seen; I must just be mistaken. And yet…this movie melted off my little nerdy face.
Could this be one of the best sci-fi movies of our time? Quite possibly. If you love the Star Trek franchise, go see this movie. It’s even better than the reboot. IT’S A SEQUEL THAT’S BETTER THAN THE FIRST. But that’s oddly appropriate, given the history of Star Trek movies.
As some may know, our very own, wonderful Kurosune has recently started writing for The Jace Hall Show. In a recent article she has written for the site, she spotlights three gaming blogs run by ladies and mentions our wonderful site!
For those who don’t know, I used to write for Nerdy But Flirty (and still do!). When I came across the site some months ago, I read every, single, lastarticle written by the exceptionally talented women there, and thought: Yes. Finally, a blog I can relate to more than one way. I contacted Sarah to write for the site, and literally hit the ceiling when she got back to me. On NBF, I write as Kurosune. It was my very first time writing on a professional level (aside from writing novels) and for those that want to turn up their noses to NBF mainly because it’s an all-woman run blog, I suggest you turn your noses down and closeyour mouth before the rain of your own ego and ignorance drowns you. (Because NBF/the writers have had more than their share of, “It’s a girl gaming blog? YEAH RIGHT, get back in the kitchen” jokes, believe me.)
Sarah and the writers/contributors have worked exceptionally hard to make Nerdy But Flirty a very successful blog, and one that’s easy to understand as well. Nerdy But Flirty brings up the tough articles that nobody wants to write about, or even mention. They tackle the issues that are clearly plaguing both women (and male!) gamers and the video game world as well, such as sexism in gaming, race, rape culture, objectification, and other issues as well. Moreover, the articles are all exceptionally written as well. You get an objective and subjective view with every, single new blog!
