We close out the show with Drinks at the Inn as always, so grab yourself your favorite beverage and curl up with all of us here at…The Surly Nerd.
We’ve made it to episode 19 and this week we kick up the audio quality so you can hear us drunkenly rant about all the nerdy things you love in higher audio resolution…or something.
We kick off the week with level 1: Technology News where we hit up everything from the new Apple products to robots who paint your dreams. In Level 2: Gaming Industry News we chat about Nintendo taking a hit on the Wii U, what the creator of Wing Commander is up to and what it means for the gaming industry, what’s up with Zynga and a college course on gaming at Rice University and the people who work in the industry who make us sad.
In level 3 we have entertainment news with talk about the Walking Dead, X-men, The Avengers and what the hell Michael Bay is yelling about these days. We move from there to our Drinks at the Inn segment where we talk about the 80s horror/comedy classic HOUSE and why you should have been watching it.
Grab yourself a drink or two and curl up with all of us here at… The Surly Nerd! Also, If you like the music this week its brought to you by Harley Poe. Check them out, its great stuff.

Welcome to episode 13 of our little show and what a show we have for you this week. After our prelude segment we drive into Level 1 – Technology News where we talk all about the things Apple and Google are up to these days with a little Valve and Zynga discussion tossed in for good measure. From there we head over to Level 2: Entertainment news, talking about everything from Y: The last man to Transformers 4 to Joe Hills Horns movie adaptation.
Level 3: Video Game News is the meat of our show this week with some Sony Wonderbook news, EA wanting to buy out Valve, Gamestop wanting the Ouya and a TON of Wii U talk. We close out this week with a very brief Drinks at the Inn segment as we get ready for next week.

In level two we touch on tech news from Valve expanding to more than just video games,<wbr> Android vs Apple and if anyone ACTUALLY cares about the mars landing. In level three we have a heaping helping of entertainment news from Sin City 2 to the H+ digital series (with the obligatory super hero news inbetween) and finally we close out the show with Drinks at the Inn. </wbr>
