The Shenmue 1 & 2 Collection Is Coming Out Year?!? **faints**

**wakes back up**

Huh? Whaaa? What happened? What did I miss? Ok, this is one of those things that’s both FOR me and NOT for me. You see, I was a fan of the Sega Dreamcast (despite not owning one; I played on a friend’s console) and of Shenmue when it was released (again, I played it on a friend’s Dreamcast). I even got my hands on the Xbox port of Shenmue II despite not having an Xbox at the time; yeah, I had it pretty bad. based just on that alone, imagine how much I fanboyed when the Shenmue III crowdfunding campaign was announced a couple of years ago. Anyway, SEGA recently announced at FES 2018 that HD ports of Shenmue and Shenmue II are being brought over to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in North America and Europe, while being exclusive on PlayStation 4 only in Japan.

Google’s Take on Apple’s AirDrop for Android, ‘Files Go,’ is Currently in Beta

Google brand new upcoming app, Files Go, works similar to Apple’s AirDrop, as it will allow users to manage, clean up, and share files to nearby Android-based devices via Bluetooth. Files Go — what will likely be a less-than 10MB download, according to the closed beta — has a file-transfer feature doesn’t appear to operate EXACTLY how AirDrop works, as both people need to have the Files Go app open, while AirDrop lets you send files from any app to any nearby contact, regardless over the recipient having a similar app.

Bless You ‘Mass Effect: Andromeda’ for Gifting Us These Frightening Custom Characters…

Don’t worry, dudes and dudettes; no spoilers to Mass Effect: Andromeda here.  Anyway, the story of Mass Effect: Andromeda involves humanity journeying out to populate new home worlds in the Andromeda Galaxy as part of  the “Andromeda Initiative”. The player assumes the role of either Scott or Sara Ryder, an inexperienced military recruit who joins the Initiative and wakes up in Andromeda after a 600+ year voyage. As with the other main Mass Effect games, the player can create a custom character using the features of the game’s robust creation system, which can lead to amazing or hideous character creations. This post — and the following images after the break — celebrates the latter. Enjoy the show.

The 1st Year Anniversary of “The PractitioNERD” Blog! YAY! A WHOLE YEAR!

“DO YOU KNOW WHAT….TODAYYY ISS??”

One year ago today, I was still in search of a job to speed up my career in architecture after getting my Masters, and seeking an outlet for my other outside interests of gaming, tech & gadgets, and professional wrestling.  Rather than wait for new job to begin to start the blog, I was inspired by Bishop David Copeland, that “if you have a passion, if you have a gift, don’t sit on it.”  That same week, I began researching blog hosting sites and names for the blog.  It started out, pre-launch, as “The Nerdy Life,” yet it really didn’t really spark with me, and I was encouraged by my family to try inventing a word that could mean the same thing.  It resulted in compiling words that ended in “ner,” as I was dead-set on incorporating the word “nerd” in the title.  My eyes scrolled up and down the screen, and there it was: “practitioner.”  That same week, I launched the blog as “The PractitioNERD, ” and defined the new word from a combination of the meanings of “practitioner” and “nerd” as:

“One of superior skills or intellect who practices something, especially an hobby, topic, occupation, profession, or technique, that does not conform to society’s beliefs and trends, and who will make a radical change in the world.”
