It’s time for our annual E3 predicitions episode!
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, Marvel is breaking big news as they set new rules for how they are going to be handling death in comics going forward. DC has announced another Black Label title, and it looks like it’s going to be another in the Batman universe.
Netflix is making waves this week as they hire on the Russo brothers to help pen their newest animated special: Magic The Gathering. Death Stranding has finally given us both a full trailer and a release date and yet we are more confused than ever about this Kojima title.
Also this week, Call of Duty has several huge announcements and they might just be enough to bring fans back to the series once again. Closing out the news this week we have Todd Howard talking about Fallout 76 in a way that we don’t think anyone would appreciate.
This weeks BOSS ROOM is our E3 predictions.
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! (email@example.com!)

This is the RE we deserve
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! We’ve taken out the prelude this week to get right down to the news.
Over in comics, we talk about the Scarlet TV series, the 30th anniverary of Transformers: The Movie and the all-new Josie and the Pussycats. We also dive into the new Justice League Dark animated feature and close out level one talking about the new Black Panther comic and the toll that the job of comic producer can take on a person.
Over in the world of entertainment, we have Hulu making a new horror anthology, who has been cast as the roll of Pennywise in the “IT” remake and Eli Roth talking about why it is important to keep making offensive movies. Level two winds down with a talk about China’s influence on modern Hollywood movies and if we should be worried.
In game industry news, E3 is in full swing and we break down anything and everything that happened during Microsoft and Sony’s respective shows.
Our epilogue this week was cancelled due to 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!)
