Fire Emblem Heroes – A Simpler Fire Emblem Game

I don’t play too many mobile games.  Some of them are pretty good, but they all eventually become more of a chore or a mindless way to pass the time, as opposed to actually being any fun.  Time will tell if the same happens with Fire Emblem Heroes, but this game is easily my favorite [...]

Pupa – The Worst Anime I’ve Ever Seen

Valentine’s Day is just about here, which means we’re in the wonderful season of love.  There are some good romance anime series out there, and I’m looking forward to talking about them.  At the end of the month.  Today, though, we’re here for something far, far less appealing.  We’re here to talk about Pupa, and [...]

Passengers – Middle of the Pack

Did you know that Passengers is still in theaters, as of this post?  I didn’t until earlier today.  And, with that in mind, a friend and I went to see Passengers to find out if it’s any good.  In short: it’s decent.  Not amazing, but not awful.  However, it’s not quite the movie that I [...]

Video Games and Depression

It is a fair statement to say that all of us here at Duly Nerded have suffered from depression from time to time. It’s unavoidable, even people who are happy about everything feel depressed occasionally. Sometimes it can just seem like the entire world is against you or nothing you do seems to go right. [...]

Manly Guys Doing Manly Things – Another Fun Comic

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about any kind of comic.  Truth be told, I’m not really sure what to say half the time.  But, that aside, let’s take a look at another webcomic that I really enjoy: Manly Guys Doing Manly Things.  The title doesn’t really give much away at first, but it’s [...]

Problem Solving in Video Games

I have been a longtime fan of video games in all varieties. I enjoy first person shooters, RPGs, MOBAs, and MMOs. One of the things that I love about video games is the challenge. Frequently, a game will present you with some task that seems impossible, or at least very difficult. It is always a [...]

Rogue One – A Short, Spoiler-Free Review

It’s finally here, Star Wars fans!  For the past year, we’ve been waiting for Rogue One to finally hit theaters and show us what a Star Wars spinoff film can do.  Don’t worry, I won’t be throwing spoilers all over the place, especially within a couple days of the film’s release, but I do want [...]

Rhythm Games – Just Plain Fun

Music is a wonderful thing.  I’ll just throw that out there.  Whether it’s used as a tone-setter for a piece of fiction, a way to express creativity, or just something to listen to on a long drive, music is a great medium with tons of variety.  Even as I write this, I have music playing [...]

Betrayal at House on the Hill – Another Creepy Mansion

Who says board games can’t be spooky?  Probably no one, because that’s a silly thing to think about.  But, on the off chance that anyone did think that, there are a few choice picks out there to fill the niche of horror-themed tabletop games.  My favorite of the bunch – and possibly my favorite tabletop [...]

H. P. Lovecraft – Creepy Stories That Linger

There are only a handful of big horror writers on the market these days.  When it really comes down to it, though, there are three in particular that stand out to me: Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, and H. P. Lovecraft.  Of those, Lovecraft is the one whose influence is perhaps the most well-known and [...]

D&D Stories – Kill ‘Em All

I have attempted DMing only one campaign in my life.  That brought its own share of horrors, but that is neither here nor there.  Suffice to say that I greatly prefer being a participant rather than a storyteller.  In said campaign, however, I tried to give a horror theme to a lot of what happened [...]

For the God Emperor!

I have been a fan of the Warhammer 40K universe since I walked into a Games Workshop when I was a kid. Initially, I just thought that the models looked cool. Especially the Blood Angels, massive warriors in red with huge guns and chainswords. However, as I grew up and became more involved in the [...]

Looking for Group – More Than a Parody

Along a similar vein to things that are “deceptively cute,” which I talked about a little while back, another subgenre of sorts that really sticks out to me is “something that starts silly and lighthearted but takes itself more seriously as it progresses.”  That doesn’t roll off the tongue quite as well, but whatever.  Regardless, [...]

90s Nostalgia

Very few generations suffer from nostalgia quite as bad a 90s kids. Almost everyone born between 1980 and 1990 can really look back with a lot of fondness on the 90s. These were the years in which we grew up. A common phrase among my friends is, “I remember back in the day you used [...]
