Nerd News with Bytes N’ Brews Episode 5: Heroes of the Storm, Sonic Movie, Relics and Rarities
This week in Nerd News, we’ll cover a storm that’s starting to die down, the urge to go fast, and new D&D projects that aren’t just a shameless plug of Almost Heroic.
No More Heroes
Blizzard has pulled teams & assets from Heroes of the Storm (the only MOBA I play), to free them up for other unannounced projects. They tried to soften the blow by saying this doesn’t mean we’re going to stop supporting the game; we’re still going to create new content for it. But it’s never a good sign when a company decides to start supporting something less. Is this the beginning of the end?
Gotta Go Fast
The Sonic the Hedgehog movie motion poster is out, and the only thing I can say is, “Sweet Jesus, why?” Look at this atrocity. This is what happens when the anthropomorphic ratio is off. As if the motion poster wasn’t bad enough, we were given more sweet leg action via another (non-motion) poster.
Why would you do this to our childhood?
Relics and Rarities
Deborah Ann Woll, of Netflix’s Daredevil fame, has got more nerd cred than just comic books, it would seem. She’s starting her own weekly Dungeons & Dragons show, titled Relics and Rarities. They’ll have unique set designs for each installment with unique props and whatnot. I’m very excited for this. Relics and Rarities premieres exclusively on a streaming service called Alpha, on Monday, February 4.
