C2E2 and GDC have come and gone, but what does that mean for you?! We answer these burning questions and more on an all new episode of…The Surly Nerd!
We’re kinda excited about Civil War II
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where we kick things off about Poison Ivy and how great DC’s villains are. From there we talk about the announcement of a Bebop and Rocksteady comic before heading into a TON of Marvel news – including Jessica Jones, Kate Bishop, and Poe Dameron. We close out level one with more intel about Civil War II and how we might be hyped for what Marvel is presenting us with.
Level 2 this week is ENTERTAINMENT focused, kicking it off with a remake of Jacob’s Ladder which has James very cross. We also get into the movie for Todd and the Book of Pure Evil, the death of the 2nd Ghostbusters film, Zach Snyder’s opinions on Marvel v DC and put a nice bow on level 2 with a discussion over video on demand and if it can truly exist “day of” blockbuster releases.
We get into level 3 with a big ‘ol discussion about GDC (the Games Developers Conference) and how important emulation is to the future of past games. Also, we get into Sony news in terms of their VR plans as well as what the current future of VR should be. The show comes to a close this week with a talk on the console wars and the viability of them in a modern generation.
Due to all the news this week, we have cancelled our epilogue, but it will be back next week! 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!)
