It’s the first day of summer camp…on all new SURLY NERD!
The Day the Clown Cried might finally
get a release after all these years
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After gaming and comic filled prelude we jump into comics, where the lighter side of Secret Wars is starting to emerge amid all the seriousness of the last few months. We also cover the re-release of the 90’s Black Panther comics, discuss DC saying “NO” to re-re-reboots and our main topic for comics is all about Deadpool, and his relevance in the modern comics age.
In game industry news, Capcom does exactly what we thought they would by setting up the re-release of Resident Evil 2. PSN is getting another major update that is worth breaking down, the portable Steam machine gets more details, the heads of Final Fantasy talk what they think the series needs to succeed but does Tony agree and we wrap up level 2 with a talk about Nintendo, post Iwata’s passing.
Over in the world of entertainment, Arrow has resurrected Constantine and we get sassy because of the new Ghostbusters changes. We follow that rant up with one about the future of the Fantastic Four and change gears to talk about the release of “The Devil in the White City” and the possible release of The Day the Clown Cried. We close out act 3 with a debate on the Hollywood awards system and if it is truly broken.
Our epilogue this week is all about Secret Wars and our opinions on it so far. 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!)
