Who let Tony take over the epilogue? Why can’t anyone stay on topic? Why IS everyday Halloween?! The answers to these questions and more on an all new episode of…The Surly Nerd!
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude, we head into comics where we talk getting our own life sized Deadpool and the upcoming comic simply titled – “Black”. We move on from there to discuss the upcoming VOLTRON comic before closing down level one with a talk about the relevance of Wizard World.
In game industry news, we mourn the loss of Lionhead Studios and talk about DOOM’s hardest difficulty setting. We touch on what FROM SOFTWARE is working on next and get down and dirty with all the news about the Nintendo NX that was released this month.
Over in the world of entertainment, we get more information about ALIEN: COVENANT and what Sigourney Weaver thinks of the AvP franchise. We also find out how a deleted scene inside Nightmare on Elm street may have forever changed the lore of that universe. Also making headlines this week is THE OMEN prequel we don’t know if we want and Key and Peele’s take on Police academy. Level 3 comes to an end with a talk about FOX pulling out of Comic-con and if it even really matters in the long run.
Our epilogue this week is all about the idea of developers penalizing players for finding exploits, as chosen by Tony. 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!)
