Episode 169: Science Fiction Double Feature
Should Science Fiction be controversial? We discuss this and more on an all new episode of…The Surly Nerd!
Can the DCCU be saved?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where POWERS has finally been pulled off the air. We also hear about a Rockteer reboot-sequel, what’s coming to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and debate if comic book spoiler leaks are piracy. Level one is wrapped up with a talk about the DCCU and what could be done to make it great again.
In game industry news, Nintendo Power gets released online and there was much rejoicing. We also discuss Roll20 and its addition of D&D supplements. Level two gets wrapped up as Tony fills you in on all the latest Destiny news, Valve releases their VR software for free – and we decide to have a serious talk about if the Nintendo NX is already dead in the water.
Over in the world of entertainment, we get into the remake of Pumpkinhead, and Tony gets excited for the SPLASH remake. We also have Lionsgate talking about their new Vestron Video line, and a new horror anthology coming down the pipeline from Canada. Our main topic for level 3 is about the current state of the film attendance industry.
Our epilogue this week is about controversy in Science Fiction and if it’s important to have. 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!)
