What is G2A and why is it such a problem?
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, The Walking Dead has (suddenly) come to an end. Cobra Kai is getting an all-new story told in comic form and the Arkham series of games is finally going to have a collection of its very own.
We also find out what the final rating for Scary Stories to tell in the dark is as well as what’s next for the crew behind The Haunting of Hill House. Our news wraps up this week with a talk about the new Gremlins TV show, and EA seems to be having issues with the fact that everyone thinks that they are the bad guys.
Our Boss Room this week is about G2A. What it is and why as a platform, it hurts game developers.
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!)
