Episode 284 : Red Dead is Hurting the Games Industry
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a huge success…but at what cost?
Still angry you can’t pet cats
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where the Old Man Logan universe is getting a new title and character from the cosmos. Wolverine is getting a new 12-part series that takes a deep dive into Logan’s past, and if you go vote – you might be put into a comic book!
Kicking off video game news this week, we have a ton of updates about the upcoming Smash Brother game, but some people felt like this was the weakest Smash Direct yet. The second half of video game news this week is all about Blizzcon – what went right, what went wrong and how the internet is reacting to this latest Diablo news.
Over in the world of entertainment, Penny Dreadful is being resurrected – but not in the way many fans would hope. Wes Craven makes headlines once again as we find out what actually happened to the movie “Cursed”, and Night of the Living Dead might just be getting a true sequel.
Our epilogue this week is about crunch time and the human cost of making games.
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!
