Episode 157: But WHY DC?
Could the Justice League be great again? Does the movie ALIENS deserve its own celebration? Has tony left his bedroom in the last week?! We answer this and more on an all new episode of…The Surly Nerd!
We can’t wait for 4/26
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where we talk all about Steve Rogers returning to form as Capt America and who from Spider-man’s past is coming back to haunt him. We get into these death of the X-men rumors and chat about DC’s young adult novels before getting into our main topic of DC’s rebirth and what they can do to get us to buy their comics again.
In game industry news, we jump into a discussion about the World of Warcraft book and what laws Valve is breaking in Australia this time. We talk diversity in games thanks to Tomb Raider as well at the new X-box one price point and the games nominated for the gaming hall of fame this year. The curtain falls on level 2 with a lengthy discussion let’s plays and if they are good for the industry as a whole.
Over in the world of entertainment, we have The Tick getting a dark reboot and we get excited for a iconic Texas chainsaw location becoming a BBQ/Horror joint. We also talk about how awesome “Alien Day” will be and get into one of Tony’s favorite films – Killer Klowns from Outer Space. Our main topic in level 3 is about Batman v Superman – and people’s opinions on it (this is a spoiler free discussion).
Our epilogue this week is all about universe spanning events in comics and movies and if they are a help or hindrance to their respective owners. As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to the show every week and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss! (firstname.lastname@example.org!)
