Are we, as nerds, giant hypocrites when it comes to the things we love? Find out on this weeks episode of…The Surly Nerd!
With Kojima leaving, what will happen to Silent Hills?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! We kick things off in comics where Rat Queens has (finally) won an award and Marvel makes even more strides towards diversity and accessibility with their newest Avengers title. We close out level one covering the newest Secret Wars announcement, Hail Hydra!
In video game industry news, we talk about the newest Mortal Kombat announcements and what that could mean to the overall quality of Mortal Kombat X. In Konami’s world we hear rumors of Kojima getting ready to leave the company he has been with for so long. Will this move kill Konami or is this just a power play by the man behind Metal Gear? Over in level 3, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is getting balls deep in Henson with his new Fraggle Rock project, Romeo and Juliet is going to get the “300” remake treatment and Crash Ryan steps out of the pages of Marvel comics to come to the big screen.
We mix things up this week and merge our prelude and epilogue segments into one action packed discussion about nerd hypocrisy you won’t want to miss. As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to our show every week and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss! (email@example.com!)
