Daniel Hardcastle (born March 23, 1989) known on Youtube as OfficialNerdCubed or Nerd³ is a British gamer well known for his rapid editing style and one-episode Let's Plays on his main channel, OfficialNerdCubed. Instead of doing a traditional Let's Play, he puts together a half-hour video that takes a look at the game, somewhat like TotalBiscuit's WTF Is? Series, but with more of an emphasis on humor and NerdCubed's editing style, which is inspired by "My Drunk Kitchen."


Nerdcubed uploads a video everyday consisting mostly out of Let's plays that are 1 episode were he just talks about the game and plays it. These videos last anywhere from 15 minutes to sometimes up to an hour.

Running Series (as of 4/7/2014):

  • Nerd3  Plays - An edited video focusing on comedy with a humor-at-your-face comedy style, which NerdCubed is known for.
  • Nerd3 FW - A series where he just "chats" with the viewers while fucking around in a game, like the title "FW" or "Fucks with" stands for.
  • Nerd3  Completes - A series where he is going to complete a particular game; as of the summer 2014, it is The Simpsons: Hit & Run. He has stated the next one will be Timesplitters 2.
  • Nerd3 Hell - A series where he plays the worst of the worst games...mostly German simulators though.
  • Nerd3  Challenges - A series where Dan attempts to complete challenges either set by himself or the community.
  • Father and Son-days - Playing games together, Dan and his dad often feature Little Big Planet.
  • Little and Cubed - A series with InTheLittleWood where they play challenges against or with each other. The episodes are either uploaded on NerdCubed's or Martyn's channel.
  • Nerd3 Live - A series, where he just takes his streams from Twitch and uploads their highlights or them as whole onto YouTube. They are currently in testing and he does not advertise them much at this time as a result.
  • Nerd3 Extra - A series where he posts things that could go on IRL channel if they weren't about gaming, such as glitches, game breaking bugs and rants. There is some speculation this has replaced the Soapbox series even though he has said that that would go to the IRL channel.
