Nerd News with Bytes N’ Brews Episode 1: Stan Lee, Fallout 76, and Sony Leaving E3
The boys of Bytes N’ Brews are at it again. In addition to streaming multiple days a week on Twitch, we’re now getting together once a week to talk about the hottest topics in geek culture, and turning that into a quick video, dubbed Nerd News!
In this inaugural episode of Nerd News with Bytes N’ Brews, we are opening with something huge, the passing of a titan, someone near and dear to all of us, Mr. Stan Lee. We could go on for hours about this, but we’ve limited it to be just our favorite character or aspect of his legacy.
Tony has also been streaming Bethesda’s newest release and the latest in the Fallout series, Fallout 76. He gives his personal thoughts and professional review of the game so far. Apparently, the big takeaway for Tony was, “It’s not a single player game. Don’t go into it thinking it’s anything like that.”
Sony Skipping E3 2019
We close with something that’s got the ol’ rumor mill churning things out like nobody’s business. Sony has announced they will not be taking part in E3 2019. E3 is one of the biggest video game showcases we have. So, why would Sony (the arguable “winner” of most previous recent E3s) just ghost that show? Well, some popular theories include, “Their showcase would have focused primarily on games they’ve already announced that they still haven’t released.” Death Stranding, The Last of Us 2, and Ghost of Tsushima, we’re looking in your direction. And of course the more popular theory is, “This confirms the announcement of PS5 at PlayStation’s own expo, PlayStation Experience 2019, which takes place after the E3 show they’re going to skip.
We would love to hear from you. What’s your favorite Stan Lee influenced moment? What do you think of Fallout 76? And what do you think Sony has up their sleeve? Let us know in the comments below!
