Ghostbusting makes us feel good…on all new SURLY NERD!
We love all the Speeder-men, as James would say
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After gaming and comic filled prelude we jump into comics, where the largest gathering of Spider-men (or as James calls them, Speeder-men) has happened and the Walking Dead gets a pop-up book. We also talk about the newest fights the CBLDF is fighting, along with the attempted censorship of Sex Criminals. Our comic topic for the week is about the DC Bombshells and what the world at large thinks of this new super-heroine team.
In game industry news, we have the Sony team letting you vote on your next free game and Capcom talking to their community about the remake of Resident Evil 2. From there, we have Fallout and Deus Ex news and a discussion on the importance of “non violent” playthroughs. We lightly touch on Razer acquiring the Ouya and we close out level two with Nintendo NX news and what they need to do to win our hearts again.
Over in the world of entertainment, we celebrate the 90th anniversary of Phantom of the Opera on film, and we talk about the new Walking Dead beer. We start revving up for Halloween as Nosferatu is getting remade, Five Nights at Freddys gets its director, we discuss the new haunted house movie “Voices through the Trumpet and close out level 3 talking about the genre of haunted house movies and if they are relevant anymore.
Our epilogue this week is all about the Ghostbusters remakes and how they are beginning to frustrate us. 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!)
Grab a drink and settle on in for this weeks action packed episode of…The Surly Nerd
