We give you more this week with special guest Tahlya returning to join us once again, yay, this is awesome right from the start. This episode is full of fun and laughter, starting with a new record from a weird type of Zirconium at capturing and absorbing neutrons like a sponge. Johnny better watch out, he might get trapped.
Then we look at the news from Venom 2 and the new director. Is it going to be good or bad? We don’t know yet but the premise holds strong, just hope that Guardians of the Galaxy survives the new director it is facing. The DJ has definitely delivered with this topic, although he makes a suggestion of a cameo from Spiderman, so not a cool idea.
Then we give you even more again, with a double header from Tahlya with Resident Evil 2 news giving fans of the classic franchise. This then moves into the Kingdom Hearts latest release. This is confusing when we look at the release schedule. For example Kingdom Hearts X followed by Kingdom Heart 2.8. Seriously, did these guys employ an Apple genius reject? This leads into the most entertaining part of the episode when we discover Tahlya has an issue with David Cage, a Frenchman with the most inept directing style. Listen as Tahlya gives us more.
So strap on in and hang on tight as we let this sucker run wild and free for an amazing ride through an array of topics. Please, remember to take care of yourselves and each other, and in this heat keep hydrated. Read More
In this special episode the nerds amalgamated crew along with Shaun Keenan, director of Comics2movies and author of XCT: Xtreme Champion Tournament; said goodbye to Stan Lee; the man who has touched the hearts, minds and souls of many generation through his work at Marvel comics.
We discussed the various tributes to Stan Lee, ranging from DC comics to Brian Michael Bendis. The number of heroes and villains he created and how his mind works when it comes to creating comic book characters. There were other topics that were discussed such as his lesser known achievements, for example his battle against censorship and his creation of Epic illustrated which resulted in Akira being released first in Epic Illustrated. We also spoke about his famous cameo appearances in nearly every Marvel movie to other movies that were not related to marvel and future Stan Lee cameos.
Also discussed were Stan Lee’s contributions to creative endeavours such as in the anime and manga industry which resulted in 2 anime series and a couple of manga appearances, also his contribution to science and technology. We also spoke about how Stan Lee introduced merchandising through the use of the Merry Marvel Marching Society.
While Stan Lee may be gone, other comic book artists will hopefully carry his torch, people such as Jim Lee. We also spoke about Stan Lee’s works on the Silver surfer comics especially Silver Surfer Parable which was collaborated with Moebius and also Jack Kirby, the Silver Surfer ultimate cosmic experience. We even made comments about how he looked like in his younger days. During our recording his funeral service was conducted in private and a tribute is in the works.
All in all, Stan Lee was a man who cemented his legacy through his works, his ethics and his view on life. The world will never be the same without you. Excelsior! Read More
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.
