More wasteland news and a whole lot of derping around on an all new episode of…The Surly Nerd!
We can’t wait for the Mad Max prequel comic
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our Secret Wars prelude we jump into comics, where DC has launched a new “for-kids” series of websites and Mad Max is getting a prequel comic we are super excited for. Some news has starting coming out about Chip Zdarsky’s JUGHEAD comic, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s new space opera title and our main topic in comics is about the botched women in comics panel at Denver’s comic con.
In game industry news, Sony reveals its full plans for the rest of 2015 and James has issues talking about the new Darksiders game. The former Irrational Games crew are getting ready to launch a new horror game that has Tony super excited, and we go into what the Oculus is going to be offering come E3. Our final discussion in games is about game remakes and re-releases and why they are both awesome and horrible at the same time.
Over in the world of entertainment, there are a lot of issues with the upcoming BBC docu-drama about Rockstar games and there’s a ton of new news about the Twin Peaks season 3. We also go into the new Conan the Barbarian movie, what to expect on the Mad Max blu-ray, what is new in the world of Transformers and the remake of Stephen Kings “IT” and a heavy discussion about the information age when it comes to documenting film and game creation.
Our epilogue this week was canceled due to James ending up in the hospital. 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!)
