Episode 309 : Why Don’t Video Game Movies Work?
Why does Hollywood have such a problem adapting video games to film?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head right into the weekly raid (our news roundup).
Kicking things off this week, we have to revisit what all is going over at Gearbox entertainment. We also have BigBen Interactive revealing a heck of an E3 line up, Marvel Comics releasing their 80th anniversary issue and there’s another Matrix film in our near future.
Also this week, you can get hyped for the new Twilight Zone in black and white! Our news segment of the show this week winds down with Sony’s State of Play announcements – From Monster hunter to the Final Fantasy 7 remake, Sony came out swinging this week with all the big news.
This weeks BOSS ROOM is a discussion about video game movies. What works, what doesn’t and what most of Hollywood still doesn’t understand about them.
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!
