Secret War is in full force on this weeks…The Surly Nerd!
Cool things always happen during Secret Wars
Greetings adventurers, it’s time for an all new episode of The Surly Nerd! This week we come at you with all the geeky news you need, starting with an explanation as to what the heck is going on with Marvel’s new Secret War series. We compare that event to the DC Convergence event earlier in the year and go into the best month in comic book sales in 10 years.
In Level 2, Blizz-con takes center stage and we talk about the canceled project Titan, their new project Overwatch, Starcraft 2’s new expansion and what is in store for the Witcher 3’s 16 planned DLC packages. In Entertainment News we debate Tarantio’s decision to step down as a director, Marvel’s plans for Guardians of the Galaxy, talk about the casting choices for the Warcraft movie and if we really need an Evil Dead series in our lives. Our epilogue this week is about spoilers and how far out we really want to know the plot of upcoming movies.
So grab a drink and settle on in for this weeks action packed episode of…The Surly Nerd!
