Nerds Assemble episode 3: Bye, Bye Dandy

Hello and welcome to the third episode of the Nerds Assemble podcast.

In this episode, Paul, Paul, Paul and Emily take a bite out of OnLive’s use of technology and discuss what caught their eyes at Gamescom last week (from Dead Space 3 to Rain). Plus they discuss the upcoming Back to Frank Black book, which has been compiled by the group trying to bring Millennium back to our screens.

But the main part of the show is given over to a post-mortem examination of The Dandy weekly comic and what may have gone wrong that has lead to DC Thomson announcing the cancellation, later this year, of the comic in print.
