Episode 289 : Breaking down the VGAs
Are the video game awards (finally) our Oscars?
Is this the VGA’s we always wanted?
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where Marvel has cosmic-sized plans for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy comic. IDW is making a new MARVEL ACTION series based on The Avengers, and the X-men are about to change the Marvel universe in a huge way.
Kicking off video game news this week, the VGA’s take center stage with a huge Marvel Ultimate Alliance announcement. Monster Hunter is crossing over with The Witcher and Xbox game pass is looking to be your platform of choice to play video games anywhere at any time.
Over in the world of entertainment, Night Gallery is looking to make a comeback – even with the new Twilight Zone series right around the corner. Halo is undergoing some big changes as their show-runner has left, and the Conjuring 3 is ready to be a completely fresh entry into the franchise.
Our epilogue this week is about the history of the Video Game Awards, and how far they have come.
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!)
