It’s time for our annual E3 predicitions episode!
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, Marvel is breaking big news as they set new rules for how they are going to be handling death in comics going forward. DC has announced another Black Label title, and it looks like it’s going to be another in the Batman universe.
Netflix is making waves this week as they hire on the Russo brothers to help pen their newest animated special: Magic The Gathering. Death Stranding has finally given us both a full trailer and a release date and yet we are more confused than ever about this Kojima title.
Also this week, Call of Duty has several huge announcements and they might just be enough to bring fans back to the series once again. Closing out the news this week we have Todd Howard talking about Fallout 76 in a way that we don’t think anyone would appreciate.
This weeks BOSS ROOM is our E3 predictions.
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!)

Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where we talk all about what is going on with Marvel – post the Secret Wars reset. From there we get into what could be going on with Civil War II based on the teasers Marvel is giving us before we head into the latest updates in Superman’s universe. Comic news this week comes to a close over a discussion on the upcoming Daredevil/Punisher crossover happening and break down if these TV/Comic tie-ins are a harm to the artists creative processes.
In game industry news, we jump right into GDC 2016 where Todd Howard is getting a lifetime achievement award for his work on such titles as Skyrim and Fallout 4. Our inner fan-boys kick in as we talk about DICE 2016 and the opening panel that Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro will have at this years game summit – as well as all the news fit to talk about in regards to Titanfall 2. The curtain falls on level 2 with talks about the president of BUNGIE stepping down and our E3 predictions for this year.
Over in the world of entertainment, we get into all of the pilots being planned for the CW network. In there we talk about everything from Sci-fi shows to Riverdale – a Twin Peaks-style show that we are extremely on board for. We delve into the proposed pilot for Fox’s Exorcist TV series before wrapping level 3 up with a talk about the new wave of “future sequels”: Current age sequels that rely on the watchers to have seen a movie over 10+ years old.
Our epilogue this week is all about the genre of horror known as “the slasher” and if it has any staying power in the modern world. 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! (email@example.com!)
