Episode 201: Have Video Games Conquered The World?
We know gaming is popular, but are games as ingrained into our culture as we think they are?
This man thinks games have not taken over the world
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we kick things off in comics where we mourn the passing of Bernie Wrightson. We also get into the history of comic book distribution and get into what’s new with Ghost Rider and New York Comic Con.
Heading into level two, we debate accessibility versus challenge in fighting games thanks to Marvel vs Capcom Infinite and get way too excited for the Disney Afternoon Collection. Level two winds down with a talk about game development and how it’s taking over the world.
Over in the world of entertainment, we have SCREAM getting a whole new cast for season 3, VENOM getting a big ‘ol movie announcement and a trip back into the past as we talk about the remake of the classic show “Amazing Stories”.
Our epilogue this week is about influence of gaming on the world. 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!)
Grab a drink and settle on in for this weeks action packed episode of…The Surly Nerd!
