Please Stand By for E3 Insanity
What’s this? An E3 blowout bonus level?!
You’re dang right!
This week was E3, one of the biggest video game tradeshows in the history of the medium, and we are here to tell you what all went down and what’s going to be coming out over the next year. Our show format is a little different with this episode so strap yourselves in for a crazy video game filled ride on this very special bonus episode of…The Surly Nerd!
We talk Power Rangers, what’s new in Marvel’s Battleworld and Valve entering the VR arms race and more on this weeks…The Surly Nerd!
More of Secret Wars has been revealed!
Greetings adventurers, and welcome to this weeks installment of The Surly Nerd! After our prelude we kick things off in comics where Archie continues to get stranger and Marvel lets us in on what’s next for Battleworld and the Secret Wars series this summer.
In video game news, Clayfighter has decided to come back from the dead, but we think some things are better left buried. The VR wars are heating up as Valve announces their VR project and Epic Games welcomes Indy developers with open arms, but is it too little too late? Over in level 3, Mr. Spock has left this world, but not our hearts. Telltale is trying a new super project out and we try and make sense of it and we talk about who is taking over the Spider-man franchise. Our epilogue this week is about the new Power Rangers fan-film that Saban tried to have banned and what that means for freedom of expression as fans. As always, we appreciate all our adventurers who listen to our show and we look forward to your feedback on what we discuss!
