Episode 279: The Business of Horror
Why is Horror successful in some mediums, but not others?
What medium makes the best horror?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where Batman: White Knight is getting a sequel. There’s also some pretty exciting news about Lev Grossman’s “The Magicians” and BOOM! Studios is teaming up with Blizzard once again to take a deep dive into Starcraft lore.
Heading into level two, the panel gets excited for a new farming game…about weed? Minecraft looks to be getting the Diablo treatment, and a miracle has happened – Sony has decided to finally allow for cross-platform play.
Over in the world of entertainment, Black Mirror has found an AWESOME new way to engage with their audience. Ryan Reynold’s is working on a new project that will appeal to gamers, and we finally get a (dark) update about what’s going on with the newest X-men movie.
Our epilogue this week is about the medium of Horror and what makes it successful.
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!)
