The Nerd Off: (Protected Content)
Hello Nerds and Nerd Queen Karen,
Big fan of the show. I love your opinions and suggestions on nerd culture. You guys put me on to so much new content.
Now……..Let take a moment to shout out Queen Karen of the Queen City!!!!! I remember the episode when Karen surprised Rod with the SpiderMan PS4 bundle Christmas gift (I think it was a bundle) live on the show. Great surprise and very thoughtful of Karen. I love to see it!
I heard you mention Spider-Man on This Too Much. I purchased the game a few weeks ago and I just completed the Main Story. This game so much fun and the main storyline felt like a movie. I cried a few times. The gadgets, side missions, J Jonah Jameson podcast and suits was so much fun!
Question for the floor. How was your experience playing the game? Do you have a preferred suit?
Great show. Great time.
Hold it down Nerds,
Hi y’all Felix here. Hope everyone’s doing well. I’d like to say thank you so much to the person that heard me talk about cancelling my premium on the last episode and went and paid for my yearly subscription. I have no words, just from the bottom of my heart, thank you for this kindness ♥️
Ok so, Just a little clarification for Aaron on my Boruto work. You can actually credit the work on the action scenes that episode to my colleagues haha. I worked on the scene before that in the restaurant where boruto showed his more compassionate side to the new girl. I animated the first 25 seconds of the conversation then the bit where she’s chomping on the burger and fries at the same time and gushing about the flavour afterwards haha. The other parts of the scene with the 2nd half of the conversation was by one of my twitter faves Kay Yu who I am still shocked I worked on the same scene as. I’m more of a character animator so I enjoy drawing the acting stuff a lot. I really went method and studied how people pick up fries and chomp on burgers to get the scene right haha.
So since last time I took yalls advice and started doing more stuff I enjoy so just y’all and my sister aren’t my only respite from a pit of despair. I started playing video games again. I haven’t touched a single game since I gave them up to have more time to practice drawing a few years ago. Went back to my fave, Dynasty Warriors. It’s the easiest game ever so imagine my shock when I was playing and the damn enemies can fly and have crossbows and cannons and shit. I was dying repeatedly. Took a few days to readjust after having my ego bruised but I was back to destroying enemies like I was mowing the lawn. That’s the main thing I’ve been enjoying, dynasty warriors strikeforce on my oldass psp. Thinking I might as well upgrade to a switch soon since the screen on my dusty ass psp is pure struggle and I wanna play newer dynasty warriors games and xenoblade chronicles again now that it’s been remastered. If any of y’all have recommendations for any similar action games on switch or some good JRPGs I can spend 100 or so hours on, I’m all ears.
Other than that, still watching all the CW Shows, I got caught up on the flash (THAT FINALE) and legends (BRUV!!), behind on Supergirl atm but I’m on season 3 of Lucifer now. Lucifer is still hot and his detective lady friend is still also ridiculously attractive. I can say the same for Elementary, British dude is hot and so is Lucy Liu. These kinda setups are my absolute favourite dynamic no matter who it is. I need Manchester Black (god he was FINE!) from Supergirl to get him one of these procedurals with Simone Missick as the detective companion. I’m dying to see all that charisma share a scene.
The She-Ra finale was really good so me and my baby sis were really happy with it. They stuck the landing and now it’s one of my all time faves alongside Avatar and Korra.
I was catching up on Batwoman also but that ruby rose news really killed my Vibe man. I was really getting into it and she was improving as it went on then bam. Kinda sucks but hopefully they find another good actress for the part. If their acting is solid I honestly would be ok with anyone lol. And also honestly I don’t mind the Snyder cut finally coming out as long as the annoying ass Snyder fans shut up finally and give WBs social media interns a reprieve. It won’t happen but when it comes out and is still trash Ill be in my house laughing about it.
And lastly, I dived right back into my reading. I finally finished The Fifth Season by NK Jemisin. That was fantastic and also surprisingly horny for a fantasy joint, I need that show they announced in 2017 asap, though I don’t know if TNT got the budget for some of the wild shit that goes on in this book. Im caught up on the Bendis Legion of Superheroes. I’ll have to repeat what I said last time regarding this, he made Lightning Lad black so it was already a 10/10 for me but so far it’s great. Even brought in Damian (better than all previous Robins combined, especially Tim Drake) Wayne for an issue. Good stuff. Coates’ Black Panther and Cap are still great. Kinda worried about what the delay is on resuming black panther when a lot of other main books have announced dates but we’ll see. The arc is almost finished I gotta see how it ends. And since I do have the time, I got caught up on every dawn of X book besides Fallen Angels which I didn’t really vibe with sadly. I bought the audiobook for Riot Baby after remembering Rod mention it and I got the ebook of the authors other book War Girls. Enjoyed a lot of good stuff and excited to get into some more so I’ve been feeling way better. Love y’all as always. Felix out
I didn’t know so many folks were excited about The 100 coming back. I mean y’all have been singing its praises for years, but all this hype online was a surprise. Oh, y’all mean that’s not the release folks were excited about this week?
Shout out to DC. They’re really gonna release the Scammer Cut! We don’t need to rehash all the Snyder stuff, because it already doesn’t matter if this good, the agendas are set. This does make perfect WB sense with their extended edition Blu-Ray method taken to the next level and I just applaud the balls. And they’re making sure to release it in parts probably spaced out just long enough to make sure that one month free-trial auto-renews. I’m here for it. Next let the Game of Thrones fans pay for a choose your own adventure ending and write their own finale so we never have to hear folks complaining online again.
But the good news for them is it made everyone just forget Ruby Rose dipped on Batwoman after a year. I’m gonna wait until we find out more what happened behind the scenes, but damn that shit came outta nowhere. Oh well, hope everybody is doing good. Looking forward to hear more about Massa Karen’s Plantation.
