Episode 332 : The Draw of the World Of Darkness
Why is the World of Darkness making a huge comeback?
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, Spider-Man Noir is back from the dead and getting his own mini series. The fan made sequel to The 7th Guest is finally dropping this week and Death Stranding is finally announced for PC.
Also this week, the creator of Black Lightning speaks out about DC’s focus on Batman as their flagship hero. Steam is beta testing a feature to allow you to play couch co-op games online and Bethesda adds another nail to their coffin by launching a new $100 premium feature. We wrap up the news this week with Disney locking away old Fox movies into their vault and what that means for the future of Cinema.
Our Boss Room this week is a trip down memory lane as we talk about the classic RPG universe: The World of Darkness. We break down its influences on pop culture, why it is so popular and why it seems to be making a huge comeback in the world of video games and more.
