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 anywere from 15 minutes to sometimes up to an hour.

Schedule and Channel "Regeneration"

"Three Free Games Friday" was a prevoisuly very popular series which was discontinued due to the channel "regeneration" video. Other changes to the channel due to this video include "Little Vs Cubed" which was rebranded to "Little and Cubed" which will suposedly include challenges that will be set for the community instead of for themselves,the video mentions more Grand Theft Auto V being included within the series as well. "Father and Son-days" remain unchanged: these consist of video's uploaded on sundays. the videos feature Dan and his dad playing games, where they often play Little Big Planet. The recently launched "Soapbox" series has been moved to the IRL channel
