Greetings adventurers, it’s time for an all new episode of The Surly Nerd! This week Marvel has decided they want to be all up in our news and we are here to pass the savings on to you! After an awesome prelude where we go into the new Constantine show, we start off with Comic Industry News. In the world of comics we go a bit into the new Harry Potter story to be released on Halloween (today), She-Hulks cancellation, Marvel’s new anti-bullying campaign and the “The End” campaign for the Ultimate’s universe.
In Game Industry News we tell you all about the PS4’s newest update, the remote features coming to the PS4, 3D Realms reopening for business and the current state of the Call of Duty franchise. In Entertainment News, Marvel takes center stage again as we rejoice in all the Marvel movie announcements, we talk about the new Archie T.V series and why we can’t wait for it and the Phantom of the Opera series that we hope doesn’t make it out from the sewers. We close out the show with a discussion about the current state of the “Super-hero” genre that we think all of you will love.
