Blizzcon is over, but is the hype still there?
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, EA makes their way back to Steam and that means big things for their games. HBO MAX is getting a whole lot of DC properties and that could mean the end of DC Universe and the creators of the Game of Thrones television show are leaving their announced Star Wars projects.
Also this week, Miyamoto is being honored in Japan and it’s about time. Sony is killing it this week by both having the second best console of all time and shutting down their disliked Vue service. The news comes to a close this week with a discussion about Seth MacFarlane’s newest horror show and we let you know what spooky shows killed it in the ratings last month.
Our Boss Room this week is a talk about anything and everything shown at Blizzcon, and if we should really be excited for any of it.
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!)
