The Nerd Fountain

Nerd Fountain is not a first look-driven outlet, instead we are a podcast and blog that reviews and interviews designers, developers, and publishers from multiple industries to deliver both an inside perspective and a human touch from behind the closed doors that drive nerd culture. We also discuss mid-life dating, give advice, and answer emails. Shows range from The Nerd Fountain's main feed, which features specific discussion points, paired usually with a tabletop or video game review, followed by casual conversation. Other shows include Interviews and shows from the road between Jeffrey Norman Bourbeau and other collaborators.

Hello my Meeples,

 

Power Jeff here!

I had to get this into your ears before I head off to the Origins Game Fair later tonight. Maybe you can check it out on your way down.

During this interview Rob Daugherty of White Wizard Games explains everything there is to know about Hero Realms, the new Star Realms: Colonies, and Epic's Organized play which boasts extremely large cash prizes (and I would assume easy competition if you know what you are doing).

 

Hopefully I can check out some this Hero Realms content down at Origins next weekend!

The new hot summer jam is Nerd Fountain and you have come to the source.

This week we discuss the Darth Vader Comics and Novels, Blizzards new team-oriented shooter "Overwatch," Jeff compares two headsets: the Hyper X Cloud II vs. the Steele Series Siberia 350, we explain how to host a panel, Jeff goes over the panel he hosts, and without even a whisper we say goodbye to the core show...

Also we have a long and heated discussion, again, over Aunt May's sex appeal. Err I mean Civil War. 

JM then gets super passionate over the Darth Vader comics and Jeff pushes his buttons like the Emperor.

Thank you for checking us out for an entire year and 10 episodes. We were just starting to get to know you. We will continue to produce weird podcasts, such as Session Impressions, Power to the Meeple, and 2 new shows we have been working on with rotating cast members from the past, including one mentioned in this episode around 51.00.

Hi friends,

This marks my first episode without my backup boys. That's right, this endeavor has become a solo project. Say goodbye the main show. Pour one out for Joe.

But do not fret for I shall be continuing on with Power to the Meeple my interview series and JM will be producing a really great radio play. (I've heard it. It's rad.) 

For this episode of Power to the Meeple, I (Jeffrey Norman Bourbeau) was given a hands on demo of Total War Warhammer with Al Bickham Creative Assembly Communications Director. I also met with their PR Manager who was a cool too.

Welcome to another Holistic Episode of Session Impressions. SI features short reviews of games from a myriad cast. We cover components, overall game-play quality, and the general feel of a product.

These are not intended to be full fledged reviews, but instead just a taste of our experience with the game.

In this episode, Jeffrey Norman Bourbeau, John-Michael Gariepy and Joe discuss Snake Oil Elixer from Out of the Box Games.
