Nathan Fillion Poses Sexily With His PS4 Like a Big Ol’ Fake Geek Boy

DISCLAIMER: Calling Nathan Fillion a “fake geek boy” is a joke. It is impossible to be a fake nerd. As with the Fake Nerd Boys tumblr, the headline of this post is a satirical swipe at the way women in nerd/geek spaces are disproportionately judged based on their physical appearance compared to men.  See: The “Fake Geek Girl” myth.

Get it? Got it? Good. If I catch any flak for calling someone a fake nerd, I swear to the Force….

Armored Lady of the Day: Samantha Swords

The Adventure Time nerd in me is asking whether Samantha Swords (her stage name) is related to Susan Strong, the D&D playing part of me is shushing it so that we don’t piss off the 2013 winner of the long sword event in the Harcourt Park World Invitational Jousting Tournament. Samantha also designs her own swords. You can watch an interview with her at Fashionably Geek.

Why Put Playable Female Characters in Call of Duty?

Honestly, adding female soldiers to character customization wasn’t about trying to lure more people into the game. It was actually just about acknowledging the people who already play our game.Mark Rubin, executive producer of Infinity Ward.

While Call of Duty initially made its name in World War II era combat, its Modern Warfare series and Black Ops II are set in the present or near future. One other good reason to add female characters to Ghosts is that by 2016 at the latest, women will serve as Army Rangers, Navy Seals, and Marine infantry.

Although I have to admit, acknowledging the women who already play your game is good too. (Also it would be pretty sad if you put a mo-capped dog in your game before you added women to multiplayer.)
