Greetings adventurers and welcome back to our little Inn on the internet we call The Surly Nerd. As we enter into episode 15 this week we kick the news off with Level 1: Technology News where we talk about the riots and lawsuits following Apple around on the heels of the new iPhone release. We go from there to cyber attacks on banks, Valve talking about Steam for Linux, HPs CEO and Maingears all in one gaming PC.
Over in Level 2: Video Game News we cover Popcaps employees getting laid off, World of Warcraft, Google trying to understand the modern gamer, Phantasy Star Online 2, the unreleased Cabin in the Woods game, a couple new trilogy releases, some Sony news and 343s plans for Halo.
We close out our show with a heaping helping of Level 3: Entertainment news. This week we discuss Captain America being sworn in as president, Ghostbusters getting rebooted, a Spy Hunter Movie and a ton of Marvel movie news. From there we talk about the Vatican’s opinion of Promethus, what to expect in the new Sin City movie, the lawsuit over the Dark Knight shooting and close out Level 3 with Tonys rant about things Michael Bay has said recently.
