Not nearly as stuffed as a Thanksgiving turkey, but damn near as tasty…we are, The Surly Nerd!
Welcome to our Thanksgiving holiday blowout special. To be perfectly honest, there’s not a ton of news this week but what we lack in news we make up for in general fucking off.
Level one is technology news, where we cover Firefox 64, the new Xbox casual model, Hulu Plus for Wii U, HPs fourth quarter earnings and what was really going on with that Warner Brothers app. From there we head to level two, entertainment news. More Star Wars, Deus Ex and Hobbit talk takes the stand. A little chatting about Thor 2 and the future of Community before our Drinks at the Inn segment. The news list might seem short this week but we promise it’s worth the listen.
Grab some Thanksgiving leftovers and settle in with us here on…The Surly Nerd

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.
