Needless to say, I didn't have the best lane phase, and they took my tower early and then left me to farm alone (they thought they shut me down). The build was something like Lichbane, mercs, RoA, Dcap, Abyssal, Zhonyas. By the end of the game, I was like 12/7/5 (was like 2/5 when they took my tower) and had taken more towers than anybody else.
That would have been a golden opportunity for some counter jungling, a shame your jungler didn't capitalize on it.

AP Nasus is the way to play him in PG.

Lich bane adds a 1.0 AP ratio every 2 seconds.

Which is why lich bane on Karthus lets you chunk towers like nobody's business.

Lichbane damage calculations don't care.

You also have an absolute max of 35 pene.. plus you may split that pene between magic/phys

My first pentakill was AP Nasus.

Once you get some serious AP your ulti is about 5% (+6%) max hp which was my main focus, wanted to melt people by running with them, but your spirit fires huuuuuuuuuurt and you don't even needa be 100% AP, choosing between a lich-bane or trinity force respectively, even taking different boots can make you a monster, the melt from your ulti if you do get a whither and positioning as well as the absorb dmg into bonus AD means trinity works about as well once you're at 360 AD during a good ulti so even though you get more damage outta the lich bane, the other stats you miss from trinity can make trinity as good a choice.

Not to mention hitting faster with that 360 AD as well as move speed, tankiness, vamp, spirit fire armor shreds makes him rather nasty as a mixed champion late game, with the early strength of mana to spam, zone and allow Q farm regardless of being AP stacking at heart and the whole bundle with lifesteal considering mixed builds makes him rather versatile, supportive, tanky, sustainy, bursty, scary.

So fun.

I prefer having an AD nasus over AP nasus except in aram because Ad nasus can build much tankier because he doesn't actually need to worry about getting ad items beyond triforce and maybe LW.

Lich bane procs 100% of AP, this build ~600 AP.
