    Newsreaders Tonight!

    What are you doing tonight at around, oh say, Midnight?

    You're watching the premiere of Newsreaders on Adult Swim? Correct.

    Why wouldn't you watch it? It's got everything: action, adventure, romance, Dan Rather... the news! Our pal David Wain is an Executive Producer of the show and it's a spinoff of his show Childrens Hospital, and it stars Mather Zickel, whom My Damn Channel fans know from our show Horrible People, so obviously it's going to be super funny, I mean OBVIOUSLY.

    You can catch the show tonight on Adult Swim at Midnight, like I said before if you weren't actually paying attention, or you can watch it now on the YouTube.

    Do it! Tweet me what you think. @MrChrisDonahue

    Hey Nerds, lots of exciting things to tell you about this week, so let's get into it!  This week in Nerd News:

    -It has been nearly a year since we've seen the original Grand Theft Auto 5 trailer, but Rockstar has been steadily releasing info this week, including a brand new trailer.  I, for one, am so stoked!  According to Rockstar, you'll play as three main characters: Michael, Trevor, and Franklin.  This is the first time ever that you'll play more than one character in a GTA game, but for good reason.  Ever finish a mission and then have to drive all the way across the map to get to the next mission?  No more.  Now you'll be able to jump between characters and take control of them as they are going about their daily life.  You'll even be able to switch between them during missions as long as they are present.  Don't want to be so close to the action?  Switch to a character who is across the street and provide cover by sniping people off.

    -For a long time video games have been extremely hard to make and even harder to get your hands on the tools to make them, thus the lack of creativity.  L.A. Game Space looks to bring video games back into the hands of the gamers.  The goal of the L.A. Game Space is to experiment and create art out of video games.  There are for main components of the L.A. Game Space:  Residential, Galleries, Research Labs, and the Speaker Series.  It's all very interesting and complex, so be sure to go to their Kickstarter page and read more about it.  However, if you do decide to donate, you'll get an awesome package of 30 games from people like Pendleton Ward, the maker of Adventure Time! 

    I could go on and on about more that happened this week, but I'll spare you guys.  Be sure to watch Kristina's Answerly video later today for more Nerdy goodness!

    Greetings Nerds, let's get on with it already! This week in Nerd News:


    -I know, I know, I talk about Skyrim a lot. But, ERMAHGERD NEW SKYRIM DLC!  Scheduled for release on December 7th, Dragonborn is Skyrim’s third expansion to come out this year.  From the looks of it, every Dovahkiin’s wish of being able to ride dragons will finally be granted. However, no one knows whether or not you'll be able to actually control the dragon or if it will just be a cut scene between traveling. I’ll be sure to give you all the information once it finally hits Xbox Live.


    -For most Whovians, the first five episodes of Series 7 was hardly enough for us, so we scrounge for any piece of news we get our hands on until the Christmas special.  Luckily, we've got our hands on some exciting info:  Neil Gaiman is back on to write another episode about the Cybermen!  


    -Saga issue #7 comes out next Wednesday after a long two month hiatus! If you aren't following Brian K. Vaughan's newest romp, definitely be sure to check this one out. Like I said, it's only seven issues in and has been collected into a trade paperback form, so you really have no reason not to. While I was at NYCC I was able to attend the Saga Panel and they revealed the covers for the next few issues. And let me tell you, they were goregous!*


    That's all I have for you guys this week!  Be sure to check out Kristina's Answerly video later today for more nerdiness.

    *with tons of robot sex and gore, Saga is very NSFW.  Read at your own risk!

    Hey Nerds, not much has happened this week in the Nerdisphere, but I'll try my best!  This week in nerd news:

    -All you Apple fanboys can rest easy, the iPad Mini has been announced!  Coming in at just under 8 inches, the iPad Mini will only be an inch and a half smaller than the iPad 2.  Apple will be accepting pre-orders starting today and will available in stores on November 2nd.  What do you guys think?  Will you pick one up or are you like me and don't understand why someone want a smaller iPad when they could just get an iPod Touch?

    -People are finally beginning to learn the potential of video games as a tool of teaching.  In this case, we're talking about Skyrim.  Taught by professor Donna Beth Ellard, from Rice University, ENGL 312 "Scandinavian Fantasy Worlds: Old Norse Sagas and Skyrim" teaches students to compare the influence of Scandinavian fantasy worlds on us today.  I would take an infinite amount of arrows to the knee if I could only take this class.

    Are you still recovering from post-NYCC depression?  Hopefully this will ease your minds.  This week in Nerd News:

    -What happens when a group of delinquents on community service get zapped by a freaky lightning storm?  They get super powers and kill their patrol officer, that's what!  Well, at least according to Misfits they do.  That's right, season 4 of Misfits has been announced!  We haven't got a set premiere date yet, but E4 have released a teaser trailer saying that Misfits is coming soon.  I wonder if they'll end up killing another patrol officer this season...

    -Remember a few weeks ago when I talk about Project Eternity?  Well, their Kickstarter ended a few days ago.  The verdict?  They freakin' blew their original goal out of the water by nearly 4 times the amount!  If you weren't able to back their project and still want a copy of the game, they'll be releasing it via Steam once they're finished. 

    -Bioshock Infinite has been announced for a while now, but the release date has been pushed back multiple times.  There has been little footage of the game and many gamers were worried that it was going to be pushed back again, until recently.  Irrational Games, the company who are responsible in making Bioshock Infinite, have announced two collectors edition of the game: the premium edition and the Ultimate Songbird edition.  In the premium edition buyers will get: a 3-inch keychain bottle of the Murder of Crows vigor, a 5x7 inch lithograph, a 25 millimeter Handyman miniature from the new Bioshock Infinite board game, an art book, and codes for downloadable content all for $79.99.  For $149.99 you get everything in the premium editions plus a 9.75 inch statue of the Songbird from the game, all in special packaging that looks like it's from the world of Bioshock Infinite.  You can pre-order your collectors edition here.

    Tonight's Vice Presidential Debate: Will Joe Biden say something crazy?

    In a presidential campaign full of curious quotes and copious fact checking, Vice President Joe Biden has mostly managed to fly beneath the radar. But with tonight’s VP debates, it’s time for Mr. Biden to shine.


    Joe Biden is less likely to be fact checked than he is to be laughed at. Well, maybe laughed with. You see, Joe’s a swell guy, but he’s got a bit of a mouth on him. And it tends to say stuff. Stuff that nobody, not even Joe, planned for it to say. It just comes out. It’s kind of adorable, really.


    After spending some time rummaging through the VP’s accidental greatest hits, like telling a man in a wheelchair to stand up, asking for “a web site’s number” or talking about the president’s “big stick”, it seemed like this is the one to beat:


    "Folks, I can tell you I've known eight presidents, three of them intimately."

    And that’s what tonight is all about. Yes, we'd love to hear Mr. Biden’s highly qualified opinions on foreign policy and tax rates, but we really want to know if Uncle Joe is going to top his assertion that he’s had sexual relations with three U.S. presidents.


    Maybe he’ll name names!
