HALO 5: Causing Erections
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our Secret Wars filled prelude we jump into comics, where DC is going full Lantern and Marvel decimates the month of May. Also in comics we go over Captain America White, Marvel’s new adult coloring book, Archie #1’s variant covers, Harley Quinn’s new girlfriend and we close out level one with a discussion about censorship.
In game industry news, Tony gets an erection over HALO 5, James gets an erection of Iga’s new Castlevania style game, we talk about how awesome the concept behind Hellblade is. We also cover the new Master of Orion game and get balls deep into a discussion about the difficulty of certain games being lowered in both Destiny and Bloodborne
Over in the world of entertainment, we mourn the passing of Christoper Lee, get hyped for Star Wars: Rogue One, cover the latest in Daredevil news and say goodbye to Constantine. Going further down the rabbit hole, we get into James Cameron’s thoughts on the new Terminator film, John Carpenters reaction to the new Big Trouble in Little China film, cover who has recently been cast in the newest Ghostbusters film and our main topic for this week is all about continuity remaining consistent from comics and video games to film.
Our epilogue this week was canceled due to getting ready for E3. 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!)
