    While this isn't PA specific, but more of an Uber announcement, we're pleased to announce Brad Nicholson will be joining Team Uber Seattle in September. We'll be cross posting in the other main forums.

    You can see the official tweet about it here:
    https://twitter.com/UberEnt/status/369595177851056128

    Expect to see BradNicholson on the forums and our other social sites! Those of us who post a lot will continue to stay a presence on the forums, but you'll also see him on the forums soon, in here, on the Toy Rush, SMNC and MNC forums, etc.

    We're excited to have him join us, and please give him a warm welcome!

    Wow! Thanks! Listen, this is an awesome thing that's happening right now, and I'm super stoked to be a part of it. I can't wait to get to know you all and say what's up. Also, it'll be great to start hearing what's on your mind about Uber's games.

    A little bit about me, if you didn't know: I've been writing about games for a really long time across a variety of web sites. When I'm not doing that, I'm playing a MOBA or a shooter or a strat game with friends. I'm also a huge fan of Robocop. I have the first movie basically memorized line-for-line. Oh! I lift weights, too. A lot of them. It's a fun hobby.

    But anyway, it's a pleasure! And I can't wait to start! I'm finishing up my last week at my current job and towards the end of next week I'll be moving across the US, so I won't be immediately reachable for a little bit. I'll be lurking, though!

    Welcome!

    Nice to know that garat will be less overloaded now and we'll get a bit more information about development. ;)

    Nope. Was annoying the heck out of me. I'll bug Lennard about it tomorrow. :)

    Can I see a picture of him? His name makes him sound muscular and manly.

    Edit: I WAS TOTALLY RIGHT!

    him saying he lifts weights as a hobby also would make me think he's muscular.

    Brad, you're probably the strongest Community Manager I have ever seen :D
    Glad you're here, I'll look forward to your community management.

    BRAD BRAD! AHHHHHHHHHHH! I totally won't post anything you said on podtoid here . . . nope. Not . . . gonna . . . do it.

    So sad to see him leave Touch Arcade. He was the main reason I really liked that site, because most iOS sites are stuck balancing "hardcore" and "casual" news. He made it fun.

    I have never been good at or really enjoyed mutliplayer games, but screw it! I will totally buy whatever video games UBER releases. Planetary Annihilation looks cool and I would have only appreciated it from a distance, because I feel I would be terrible at it. RTS games look really stressful* and seem to take a lot of mental work.

    STILL SO FREAKED OUT! ALSO! ALSO!
    BRAD'S FRIENDS LOOOOOOOVE SMNC!
    I don't want to speak for them, but I think they will be excited to play with you!

    All the people! (most of them)

    -Anthony Burch, Borderlands 2 lead writer, and co-creator of the Hey Ash Watcha Playin' (HAWP) web series.
    -Grant Cushman, started their live streaming with HeyAshTwitch
    (HeyAshTwitch)
    -Ulisses Gurgel! No one likes Uli.
    -Aaron Linde, he wrote some stuff for Gears of War 3 and now works with Kim Swift's team at Airtight Games
    -Justin Yngelmo, who might play, but IDK he isn't on their streams much anymore! He does HAWP and has another show which is a Minecraft machinima called Seedlings.

    I forget if Ash (Tiny Tina in Borderlands 2) likes it and Davis might not. I would list stuff about them, but you probably don't care about that! SCREW IT!
    DAVIS MAKES THIS SUPER CUTE COMIC
    I would promote Ash but she is already super popular so I'm too jealous to hyperlink her stuff. She's in a Youtube series called Board With Life and is doing some SPACE PIRATE thing! WHAAAT?! You can follow her on twitter or something.

    ALL these people are super cool and I didn't even list everyone and all their stuff because it would take forever! (I'm REALLY lazy and have homework)

    VIDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOO GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMEEEEESSSSSSS!

    *I just died in Spelunky with good items (Jetpack and about 20 bombs most importantly) my first time in the City of Gold while on a Hell run. The weird thing is it was actually a relief.

    EDIT: I corrected some grammatical errors, but guess what? I am still very excited.
