The end is nigh for Greenlight, but what does that mean for us Steam users?
Goodbye, Greenlight. We hardly liked ye
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we kick things off in comics where Steve Rogers is ramping up to take over the Marvel universe. We also celebrate the 100th birthday of Will Eisner and get way too hyped about Netflix expanding their brand into comics and toys.
Heading into level two, we break down what is new in the world of Call of Duty, which might mean going back to something older. Nintendo had a huge announcement this week for SWITCH users and E3 is finally opening its doors to the public for the first time in a very long time.
Over in the world of entertainment, heated words get exchanged as Netflix has announced a new animated Castlevania series and claims it will be the best western game adaptation ever. We also find about the resurrection of the Halloween franchise and get into what makes Marvel movie villains so horrible (and how they are planing to fix that).
Our epilogue this week is about the end of the Steam Greenlight program and what that means for us gamers. 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!)
