The Nick Breckon wiki last edited by chmod on 03/07/14 09:43AM View full history

Previously a writer for Shacknews and member of the Idle Thumbs podcast. Nick's departure from San Francisco to go work for Bethesda caused the first demise of the Idle Thumbs Podcast, until its 2010 reformation as "The Idle Thumbs Podcast" in which Nick was replaced by Steve "Hot Scoops" Gaynor, and occasionally by Sean "Famous" Vanaman. His departure led to the popularisation of the anguished cry "Fuck You Nick!", or the simpler "Fuck Nick!" by legions of lamenting Idle Thumbs fans. To this day he is infrequently greeted with this statement by fans, and sometimes goes by the pseudonym "F. Nick Breckon". In March of 2013 Breckon returned to co-host Idle Thumbs.

Nick used to work as a community manager for Bethesda, where he among other things updated the Bethblog and orchestrated the podcast.

He is now a Game Writer for TellTale Games

He appears as a character in FTL.
