When are game developers not your friends?
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, Nintendo has released a new version of the Switch that has some people scratching their heads. Amazon is getting into the MMO game by launching a free to play Lord of the Rings MMO and Cuphead is coming to Netflix in a big way.
Sam Rami is talking about more Evil Dead content – but do we really need it? SDCC is right around the corner and DC takes center stage as they announce the Dark Muliverse one-shot series and we break down several upcoming titles surrounding it. Finally, Constantine is finally being moved from Vertigo to join the ever expanding Sandman Universe.
Our Boss Room this week is about the Ubisoft Assassins Creed controversy and why some game developers are not your friends.
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!)
