On this fortnight’s episode we mourn the loss of Christopher Lee, discuss Jurassic World‘s amazing box office record, gawk at the release of Mother in the US for the first time, rejoice for the announcement of Shenmue 3, let out a sigh of relief for the American Gods TV show moving forward, let Nick talk about the Cyborg 009/Devilman crossover, and stare puzzled into the abyss at the incompetence of Saskatoon Blitz.
Also, Trae’s going to Oz Con next weekend in West Plains, MO. You should come.
Look, we’re pretty aware of our demographics here at Nerd & Tie. We know that a lot of you didn’t watch the Superbowl, because we know that only about a third of nerds and geeks care about sports. We know that because there are three of us, and only Pher cares about sports.
It’s very scientific.
But since the vast majority of the United States tunes into the Superbowl every year, it means a lot of new ads and teasers for big properties get aired during it… and we definitely care about those.
So, for all of you who chose not to tune in yesterday for one reason or another, here’s a collection of stuff you might have been interested in. And please forgive the fact that sometimes you have to watch an ad longer than the commercial you’re trying to get to. The internet is stupid that way.
