Episode 35 - Nobel Prize, Infinitroid, Venom, X-men Dark Phoenix & Totoro beer

In another episode from those kooky clowns at Nerds Amalgamated you will get to have a laugh listening to some news about the Nobel prizes for medicine among others. Then a look at Infinitroid – the game that never sold any copies, and looks like a lot of fun. If you are looking for a fun game to play try and find it and let us know what you think. Then the DJ talks to us about Venom, Buck calls it hippie non-sense, the professor tries to stay awake. Then because he is making up for lost time the DJ tells us about another delay for Dark Phoenix which is also delaying other movie releases. Then the best news from the DJ, Totoro beer is now a thing, so next time you want to sit down and watch some anime and eat ramen you can also drink Totoro beer. Life is getting better every day.

                In games this week Buck goes old school with Vikings: Battle for Asgard, which is actually a fun game worth taking a look at. The professor is playing Rainbow Six Siege, and loves every second of it, anyone else out there playing this? Let us know and tell us about you most epic battles. Finally the DJ is playing games again, this week he has been playing Path of Exile, a MMORPG free on steam. This takes the direction that Diablo should have gone and is an amazing experience, highly recommended by both Buck and the DJ.

                Also we are now available on Spotify for those looking for more ways to listen to us and keep up to date with the boys. As always feel free to hit us up and give us suggestions, make requests or whatever, we enjoy hearing from you all.
