Hi, there! Thank you for visiting NERDSHOCK HQ — a personal lifestyle blog dedicated to gaming culture & geeking out.

My name is Aleida Samallo (1984) and I’m a Gamer, Geek & Digital Hermit. I live together with my long time boyfriend and our two cats in one of the quiet northern provinces of The Netherlands. I always fangirl over awesome movies, binge-worthy shows, delicious tunes & epic videogames.

NERDSHOCK HQ originally launched at the start of 2013 as an independent lifestyle blog. Unfortunately life has kept me away from HQ for a long time. In 2024 I finally found the time to relaunch the NERDSHOCK HQ website and start over with a clean slate.

Please hang in there with me as I slowly rebuild NERDSHOCK HQ. Be sure to check back in for fresh updates!
