Not nearly as funny as a season of Community but having a better chance to have their season renewed, we are: The Surly Nerd
Welcome to week 2 of our “In the Month of Madness”. We keep the best month in the world rolling with our Prologue where we sing the praises of the shows we’ve been watching. We head from there into Level 1: Gaming news where we cover NPD numbers, what that means for the gaming industry at large and how important Darkstalkers and Mechwarrior Online is to James. A little chatting about THQ studios, Halo 4 being leaked and some mobile gaming happens and we wrap up level 1 with a special segment you’ll just have to hear to enjoy.
In level 2 entertainment news we talk a bunch about the state of Marvels next slate of movies, Gears of War getting launched again and the state of Universal and Matel franchise remakes. We question how important Ridley Scotts sequels and prequels are before we head into our drinks at the inn segment. We wrap up the show there with week 2 of In the Month of Madness where we cover Killer Klowns from Outer Space and tell you whats next in line for all of you to watch as we continue celebrating Halloween.
Strap yourselves in for one hell of a ride for this weeks: The Surly Nerd
