The Nerd Blitz Question Of The Week #121

What possible questions of nerdery could await you below?
After 121 installments, anything truly is possible.
So let’s dive in and see what wonders are yet to be discovered, including some…dicey…news!

Before we get to this week’s Question, we have an announcement to make about a partnership we’ve recently made!
Fitting perfectly with our long running Dungeons & Dragons game, we have teamed up with dice company @LibrisArcana to help them sling some fancy polyhedrals far and wide, as well as do some occasional giveaways for our dedicated Knights Of Nerd Blitz-Dom!
So keep your eyes and ears sharpened to make sure you don’t miss those giveaways, gang.
And be sure to check out their site at LibrisArcana.com for all kinds of exclusive dice sets, dice subscriptions, and other fun RPG goodies.
Now onto the main event!

In this week’s question/scenario, the same deranged, yet hyper inquisitive, mad man from the last two weeks is still running erratically around your house, rifling through your things, asking increasingly stranger questions.
He jumps onto the couch next to you again and asks you, in a voice that is alternating between a scream and a whisper at no predictable pace: Since Both Are Now Out, Do You Plan To Get Either Of The New Video Game Consoles?
Which One And Why?

Leave your answer down in the comments below or tweet it to us over on the Tweety times @NerdBlitzPod or by using the incredibly well thought out hashtag #TNBQotW.

Special thanks goes out to the good sir @SteBoost for creating our eye catchingly sexified logo for this here weekly segment known as The Nerd Blitz Question Of The Week.

Do whatever you can to improve it, gang, we need it now more than ever.
Stay safe, wear a mask, and we’ll see you next week.

The Nerd Blitz Question Of The Week #120

It’s not every day you turn one hundred and twenty weeks old, is it?
And it’s not every week you get asked a super nerdy question by a couple of dudes that talk for hours on the internet and try to encourage you to listen and tell all of your like-minded friends and family that they should also also listen, do you?
Look, I’ll shoot straight with you here, I kinda lost track of this bit about halfway through and now here we are with me awkwardly trying to dig myself out of this hole.
What say we just get to the question and forget this whole thing happened, deal?
Great, thanks for being so cool about this whole debacle…anywhooo…

This week, the same finger challenged mad man from last week has spent the entire seven days since staring at you and blinking his eyes out of sequence.
He leans away from you and seemingly scratches his ass cheek without ever breaking the ever important eye contact that he holds dear.
As he leans back toward you, he hisses out this question: Who Do You Consider To Be The Greatest Sitcom Star Of All Time?

The Nerd Blitz Question Of The Week #119

The world outside the castle of Nerd Blitz-Dom may be a smoldering ball of shit, but come on in, grab a giant mug full of hot chocolate, or whatever you’re in the mood to be chugging, sit back in a comfy ass throne like chair, and prepare your faces.
It’s time to get into the nerdy question time!

This week, a mad man with one eye, a limp, and 3 fingers missing on his left hand breaks your door down and starts looking at the streaming services you are currently subscribed to.
He notices you are a proud subscriber of Disney+ and flops down next to you on the couch.
He gets within an inch of your left ear, takes a deep breath, and screams: Without Spoiling Anything, Did You Watch The Season 2 Premiere Of The Mandalorian?
If So, What Did You Think And Where Do You See It Going?

Frankenstein: Anatomy Of Terror Review

For the 4th and final of my Halloween & horror themed reviews, I’m going to be taking a look at a book I stumbled across when I was 10 years old.
And in the 19 years since I acquired it, I’ve almost read it a few times but something always stopped me from taking the plunge.
Now, after all these years, the time has come to crack it open.
Can it live up to that immense amount of pressure and hype?
Let’s find out together, gang!

As is customary around here, this is your official ***SPOILER ALERT***

Okay, first off, let’s talk about the book that I THOUGHT I was going to be reading.
As you can see on the cover above, under the title, it has the tagline “A Tale Of Terror For The 21th Century”.
For YEARS that tagline made me think this was Mary Shelley’s Classic rewritten to be hipper and cooler, a retelling for the happenin’ audiences of the new millennium.
Gang, never have I been so wrong, and never have I been so damn glad to be wrong!
What this book ACTUALLY turned out to be is far far better than that idea could ever hope to be.

When 3 high school kids, Nina, Joe, & an eccentric lad known as Captain Bob, run afoul of some wacky hacking abilities, a bunch of old movies converted to 3-D DVDs, and a freak lightning bolt, the most well known monsters in cinematic history are transported to the real world 21st century to unleash true fear.
Now, having already captured Dracula and The Wolfman, these 3 start to realize next monster on their list of foes may just be the beast brought to life by one Dr. Frankenstein.

DOESN’T THAT SOUND FUCKIN’ AMAZING!?
And let me tell you, IT IS!
If I had read this when I was a kid, I would have shit enough bricks to build an entire city block worth of houses.
The combining of monsters with movies in this specific way is genius.
The twist of bringing the movie monsters into the “real world” adds a new layer of fear and horror that a movie alone could never really inspire.

For a kid’s book, and the 3rd in the series no less (more on that in a minute), the characters are incredibly well fleshed out.
And even more astounding would be the fact that Larry Mike Garmon decided to introduce at least 3 new characters in this book and, somehow, nobody feels pushed to the side and ignored, new or old.
He’s obviously building on storylines from the 1st 2 books, but he does it in a way that doesn’t make you feel like an idiot or lost for having missed the earlier installments.

I mentioned that this is the 3rd book in the series.
Now, it should be pretty obvious that, based on what I thought this was going to be, I had absolutely no idea.
Upon reflection, I should have known, I should have looked at the spine or read the back cover blurb, but damn it I had my preconceived notions locked in place and that was that.
Yeah, I think it’s well established that I’m a jackass, cause that’s a real bummer.

I really wish I could get, or had gotten, the rest of the books in this series, but now they’re either out of print or so damn expensive that it seems unlikely to happen.
It’s sad because this story is just that damn good, gang.
So if you can find a copy of this or any of the books in this series, pounce on it!
This isn’t good for a kid’s book, it’s a good story all around.

As the most horrific time of year is upon us, time to talk about horror movies!
A mad man bursts through your front door covered in blood, bone, and gore.
He puts a gleaming sharp scythe under your chin, as you stand petrified in to silence and trapped like a rat in a cage, he whispers in a raspy voice this week’s question: What Do You Think Is The Greatest Horror Movie Sequel Of All-Time?
