In this latest marvellous and riveting episode we are going to first travel into the cold, quiet and overcrowded outer space. That’s right, we are going into earth orbit and visiting the ISS (International Space Station) where Space X has just docked the new Dragon Capsule. This is the next step in a flight to the moon in 2023, still trying to get a ticket if anyone has one. The capsule was only a test with a dummy aboard, and no, not Trump. Next up is the fast approaching final season of Game of Thrones – season 8 – with what is looking like a record breaking battle scene that took weeks to film. This is expected to be more epic than Helms Deep, even the extended edition. Then we look at the fact that Anthem is hard crashing consoles and systems around the world. Cue the music “Queen – Another One Bites The Dust.” That’s right folks, EA has struck again, and this time it gets personal with systems and consoles being bricked by this latest screw up. There is mention of compensation floating around, so hopefully word will spread before too many systems are wrecked. Then we have the games of the week, the weekly shout outs, birthdays, remembrances and events of interest from this week in history. As always we would welcome any feedback, suggestions or whatever. Until next week, stay safe, look out for each other and stay hydrated.Read More
The DJ has returned to the show. Yay?!
Glad to see he is alive and talking still. Buck scares everyone by being polite and friendly, not sure what happened there. Maybe someone spiked his coffee.
At the start we get an update from the Professor about Nintendo’s save policy (still no sign of Ginger or Mary-anne but DJ looks and acts like Gilligan). We did it, yep, we started the show with two good pieces of news, and Buck was friendly, what is happening?
Then Buck brings up the saga of Telltale games closing down, with the absurd behaviour of management. Such a shame and our thoughts are with all the employees who have lost their jobs, hope everything works out well for you all.
The Professor tells us about how an AI has created a couple of games, so if we can combine that with all the other AI’s out there can we expect Skynet? The DJ is worried about being replaced with all the automation, there is a valid point that we can combine all the AI’s and build a new member for the show.
Prince Charles is opposing cyborgs, he mustn’t have watched Robocop or Star Trek, so he is off the guest list, not a Nerd. Although why he was in GQ talking about the subject is beyond us, like, literally, he is not cool, fashionable and he is older the Buck, and he went to school with Noah.
The DJ gives us a story about a bunch of wack jobs at a football game throwing game controllers and tennis balls onto the pitch in a protest against E-Sports. So please, no one help them with any tech service et cetera if they want to attack Nerds lets show them we make the world better and not to mess with us.
On the games front the Professor has been playing Legend of Zelda on the Switch, and Buck has been slaying dragons in Skyrim. The DJ has been slack yet again and not played any games, we are unsure about if he truly is a nerd.
We have all the regular shout outs at the end of the show, and Buck deliveries some breaking news about a crazy drunk woman from Adelaide, South Australia, who attacked KFC. She needs to just let the nugget go. We also made an important announcement and that is the show will no longer be called Top Shelf Nerds, it will be called Nerds Amalgamated.Read More
