It’s time to put all VR arguments to rest and talk about some nerd news, on an all new…The Surly Nerd!
Are you ready for movies in VR?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where FOX give us the deets on what’s going on with Deadpool 2 and Wolverine 3. We also talk about the new face of Kick-Ass and if we can really get excited for it. Level one wraps up with a discussion on the new Transformers animated series and if Spider-man is jumping the gun by announcing several movies at once.
In game industry news, we answer the question: “Why didn’t No Mans Sky come to E3?”. Microsoft takes center stage as they go on record and talk about how excited for the Nintendo NX, talk more about XBL and PSN connectivity, and end up closing down level two with telling the world how excited people are for the Xbox Scorpio.
Over in the world of entertainment, we give you one more reason go head to Vegas, and that’s for THE AVENGERS! In our weekly, “we were right” section: What is REALLY going on with those star Wars re-shoots. We talk about the Wolfman and the new 20,000 leagues movies in development and close everything down with a debate about the new rules for writing Star Trek fan-fiction.
Our epilogue this week is about VR – the next big film frontier. 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!)
