Spider-Man is coming…to town
Greetings adventurers, and welcome back to the show! After our prelude we kick things off in comics where we talk about what the hell DC Comics is doing with their summer Convergence event. After that we talk about Scribd which is a new Spotify-style way to read your comics and wrap up level 1 with news about the new female-led Avengers series.
In video game news we open up with Titanfall making a jump away from X-box exclusivity followed by a talk about what the hell Capcom Online is and what it means to the company as a whole. We close out level 2 with a talk about Star Citizen again and why we are still excited for the project. Over in level 3, Zelda is working its way to our television sets, we talk about all the places a Spider-Man can be and what is happening in the world of the Halloween franchise. Our epilogue this week is a discussion about us, the fans, and if we are a little too hard on the properties that we love. As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to our show and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss!

The Surly Nerd Season 3:
It’s about to get obscene

Be wowed and amazed as we become an explosion of information about the world of game development from Riot Games to why the Oculus Rift is poised to take over the world…and how we are powerless to stop it. Quake in fear as we go balls deep into entertainment news, from Predator reboots to dystopian worlds we are ready to see on the big screen.
