NolaNerdCast
We're just a couple of guys from New Orleans who like talking about comics, video games, anime and movies!

A special early bird episode that completely skips the most dramatic and important week of comics all year. So forget about DC: Rebirth (Again) and Captain America is a Nazi I guess? (I'm sure that's the title) and sit with us as we again go through the usual video game goodness. Also our initial reactions to the Preacher pilot and more!

So fun story: It is super easy to frustrate Matthew because he has the thinnest skin ever. Chris exploits that knowledge and makes Matt pout for what seems like 75% of the entire episode. What a baby. Get over it you big baby. Besides that, we talk Nintendo's baffling business moves for 2016, the announcement of the death of the Wii U, and...oh yeah, comics. This was one of the best weeks ever for comics. Like, ever. In the history of us reading. It was awesome. We cherry pick the best for you! AND THERE IS SO MUCH MORE!

Because SOMEBODY, who shall remain nameless. was busy tom-catting around the city, I now have to throw together this weeks description. We talk about what makes a valid top ten list, bunch of good comics from this week, and we continue harping on about VR, which we will continue to do until the heat death of the universe.

And that isn't all! The NOLAnerds also discuss comics, including the single most haunting issue of comics they have read in ages. They also discuss just what it will take for Nintendo to win them over with the NX. Matt tries to talk about VR, but he gets shot down until Dr. Cody PhD* jumps in to save the day!

 

*Cody is not a doctor. Why would we make that up? WHO KNOWS

Comics man. They are a thing that seems to happen every week. But you know what doesn't happen every week? A 50th issue of Batgirl. You know what else? An American soldier turning into Godzilla and fighting a giant Avengers robot. Turns out that doesn't happen too often. The NOLAnerds also discuss their favorite generations of the video game industry, chat about the recent Xbox One release Quantum Break, and give their thoughts on the new Black Panther book, alongside so much more!

So this week, a pretty big movie came out. You might have heard of it. Something about a dark knight versus a man of steel. But then a wondrous woman shows up. And they fight against the doom of the day. And some dude with hair is evil or something. 

 

But hey! Other stuff happened too! Like, DC made huge waves comics wise with their massive announcement of all of the DC Rebirth titles and creative teams. And we read some comics! Batman & Robin Eternal came to a conclusion. Saga continues to be awesome. Squirrel Girl teams up with Howard the Duck, and Chip Zdarsky sanctioned buffoonery ensues. Speaking of Chip Zdarsky buffoonery, Jughead is amazing. 

 

But that's not all! Josh flips out over Slain and Hyper Light Drifter, Scott continues to love wrestling fanfic, Chris ignores the rest of us for Avengers Academy, and so much more!

 

Batman & Robin: Eternal #26: 06m21s/

Well the gang is all here and growing by the week! The conversation takes a sad turn when we discuss the video game industry's penchant for closing studios this past week as well as Chris' inability to ever watch anything good in a timely fashion. And we find out that there are strong opinions to be had about the Wii U's failure to make a dent in the market. There are comics too. You know, those things we also read? Turns out Batman hit a milestone issue today.
