Rob Zombie has some choice words for the motion picture association
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where we talk all about the new upcoming series of Neil Gaiman shorts brought to you by Dark Horse. Over on the Marvel side we have Steve Rogers returning to the mantle of Captain America, news about Civil War II and Vision #1 being bundled with Spider-man/Deadpool #1. We close out level one with a talk about Gwen Pool and how much comic companies should cater to their audience.
In game industry news, we get all into the Oculus Rift and its requirements as it gets closer to its release window, and find out what is going on with this System Shock sequel we keep hearing about. Also, we have Microsoft telling us about the future of the Xbox as well as Star Citizen passing over $100 million in crowd funding. The curtains fall on level two with a discussion about Hideo Kojima, and how the industry he loved tried to destroy him.
Over in the world of entertainment, we get into Captain America turning 75, followed by Vin Diesel giving us the goods on what is coming down the pipeline for Riddick. We also have the controversy of Rob Zombies new film, how James Cameron is going to change Terminator 2 for its anniversary, and Mad Max winning even more best picture awards. Entertainment news comes to an end this week as we get into the mess that is the ALIEN franchise.
Our epilogue this week is all about the final word on Destiny and if it can survive as a product. 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!)
