Why is it so great to be a geek? We tell you that and more on this weeks…THE SURLY NERD
Is Lucifer ready for prime time television?
Greetings adventurers, it’s an all new episode of The Surly Nerd! What an amazing fun-filled show we have for you this week. We kick things off in the Prelude where we go over the new fall shows that have launched and specifically the things we hate about the show GOTHAM. From there we head into Level 1: Comic Industry News where we tackle the Spider-woman issue one more time, lightly seasoned with the shit Fox News is saying to degrade women and we close out Level 1 with a talk about DRM-free comics and what that means to you, the consumer.
In Game Industry News, we discuss Square-Enix’s new cloud gaming solution called SHINRA and how they are trying to take control of the future of gaming. From there we chat a little bit about the Oculus Rift and their deal with UNITY as well as UNITY’s partnership with Sony. Level 2 ends with a little talk about Playstation TV, what it is and when it is going to be launching. In Entertainment News we talk about the Deadpool announcement and what a PG-13 rating REALLY means to Hollywood. DC enters the scene here as rumors are abound about a Suicide Squad movie and a new Lucifer television show that is going to be made over at FOX. Things get crazy when we talk about what Dan Aykroid wants to do with the Ghostbusters franchise and then we bounce right into the Epilogue where we tell you why it’s such a great time to be a geek.
Grab a drink and settle on in for this weeks action packed episode of…The Surly Nerd!
