It’s time for our annual E3 predicitions episode!
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, Marvel is breaking big news as they set new rules for how they are going to be handling death in comics going forward. DC has announced another Black Label title, and it looks like it’s going to be another in the Batman universe.
Netflix is making waves this week as they hire on the Russo brothers to help pen their newest animated special: Magic The Gathering. Death Stranding has finally given us both a full trailer and a release date and yet we are more confused than ever about this Kojima title.
Also this week, Call of Duty has several huge announcements and they might just be enough to bring fans back to the series once again. Closing out the news this week we have Todd Howard talking about Fallout 76 in a way that we don’t think anyone would appreciate.
This weeks BOSS ROOM is our E3 predictions.
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!)
Grab a drink and settle on in for this weeks action packed episode of…The Surly Nerd!
Constantine and P.T are both ready to be put to sleep, so we’re here to see if we can go to bed with them. Climb under the sheets with us for an all new episode of….The Surly Nerd!
Forever is gone from TV, but not our hearts
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our (Ultron [non-spoiler] filled) prelude we jump into comics, where we find out what DC Comics is doing to screw over creators this time while the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is out trying to expose more comic creators to our youth. Next we tackle why Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are no longer mutants, followed by news on what’s going to happen to the Fantastic Four post Secret Wars as well as a talk about why Secret Wars can be both good and bad for the Marvel U.
In game industry news, John Riccitello has come out against Microsoft, prompting the entirety of the internet to roll their eyes at the former EA-CEO. We bid our last farewell to P.T and our hopes and dreams for Silent Hills, while Oculus enters negotiations with Sony and Microsoft to have the Rift put on their consoles. More news hits the world of Lego video games, with the announcement of the LEGO Dimensions series and Sony decides to pull back from Gamescom this year in a surprise move to everyone.
Over in the world of entertainment, rumors are abound that HULU is trying to create a TV series based on the hugely successful MYST franchise, Marvel’s Infinity War is announced to be the first feature film shot entirely in IMAX and MACHINIMA kicks up their own TV lineup with a series of shorts based around ROBOCOP, DC Comics, SLENDERMAN and more! Fox has confirmed that both LUCIFER and MINORITY REPORT will be headed to TV this fall, while the #saveconstantine campaign is in full force. In the midst of this, ABC is cancelling the S.H.I.E.L.D spin-off and Jesse Eisenberg tells us that he knows nothing about comics at all.
Our epilogue this week has been closed due to the MASSIVE amount of news that was released. As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to our show every week and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss! (email@example.com!)
