Episode 180: Nintendo Switched Off
The Nintendo Switch has been announced, but has the hype train even left the station? Strap in for all the Nintendo debates, and the week in geek news, on an all new episode of…The Surly Nerd!
Are we ready to Switch to Nintendo?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we kick things off in comics with the Learn How to Draw app that’s coming to you from the artist behind Spider-man 2099. We also say goodbye to the A-force comic this week as we welcome two new X-men comics, being written to take us back to the 90s.
Over in games, we discuss the currently on-going writers strike and get a little serious talking about the link between violence and video games. Lash closes down level two with the history of No Man’s Sky and a talk about why it is failing in the eyes of its fans.
Over in the world of entertainment, Deadpool 2 is getting a new director – but we don’t know if that’s a good thing or not. Also, we break down the acquisition of Warner Brothers by AT&T and attempt to bring some levity to the show as we discuss Joss Whedon’s new horror movie.
Our epilogue this week is ALL about the Nintendo Switch announcement! 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!)
