Episode 013 :: Dystopia

Posted by Hex on April 21, 2010


dystopia 300In the past, there was a vision of the future that was in ruins. There were also hover cars, laser guns, robits, and all kinds of awesome other stuff.  That was future supposed to be yesterday.  Where’s our goddamn dystopia?! Fortunately, The Protomen were more vague about when our ruined future will come.  200x could be anytime this century!  When it finally comes it’ll be in all sorts of yummy flavors such as Strawberry Homicide Awareness and Pink Lemonade Rebreather – yum!

We talk about Blade Runner, Final Fantasy VII, Brazil, and other popular favorites from pop culture’s ruined tomorrows and we’re joined by THE PROTOMEN (all of ’em) for their second appearance on Nerdy Show.  (Check out their first appearance back in Season 1).  We also discuss the glorious comic book announcements made at C2E2 and Cap reports on what he saw at this year’s Major League Gaming Championship including interviews with two pro players, SK from the Halo 3 team, Triggers Down and ESAM the best Pikachu in Smash Brothers Brawl.

    Another awesome episode! Looking forward to the next one already!

    Also, the cloud power in the new Super Mario Galaxy is kind of stupid, I say bring back the cape, it was definitely one of the est power-ups to date.

    Hope you enjoyed Kick Ass!

    Or one of the coolest ones from smb3, the Hammer suit…also maybe tanuki

    Ok.. I’m not the biggest fan of nerdcore, but that first song was effing horrible. Even if the mashup of rap and power metal was a good idea (which it wasn’t), the execution was piss poor IMO. Offbeat, loses a lot of flow trying to take the vocals out of the song and replace them w/rap, and The Ranger’s delivery was pretty sad. It seemed like apathetic delivery over POWER metal… What’s next? Beatnik poems read over death metal?

    Sorry… that song just rubbed me wrong enough to inspire a novel of rant.

  • Nerdy Show needs more impromptu in-studio singing. That made me so happy.
