Episode 25 :: ComiCon Carne

Posted by Hex on July 28, 2010

comicon carneThis summer has been fat-packed with events and they keep coming.  Riding on the heels of Nerdapalooza is the mother of ‘em all – San Diego Comic-Con.  In recent years the convention has become so much more than comic books – it’s the nerd media event with EVERYTHING: movies, teevee, video games, comics, action figures – the whole savory enchilada of pop culture smothered in a verde sauce of geeky juices. It’s a lot to handle!

Nerdy Show has tasted the many flavors of Comic-Con’s meaty soup and picked out the most delicious nuggets of news including the Marvel films, the Green Lantern movie, and other outstanding comic film showings like The Goon! Joining us to talk about his first hand V.I.P. experience in San Diego is A Comic Show and Bleeding Cool‘s Aaron Haaland.  Plus: stabbings, protests, and cosplay bank robberies, hurray!

We also talk about the forthcoming release of PC Gaming blockbuster – Starcraft 2 and Cap give his review of the epic new X-Box Arcade game Limbo and more more more!

    Great show this week, but you guys were mistaken about the cost of Starcraft 2. $100 million was the development cost of World of Warcraft, not Starcraft 2.

    Well, actually it looks like the Wall Street Freaking Journal was wrong. How the hell does that happen?! Epic fail on their part.
