We're just a couple of guys from New Orleans who like talking about comics and other nerdy things. Come! Witness the spectacle!

The first month of the DC You is over. Secret Wars is still raging on. Mega Man and Sonic are still uniting worlds. But all of that pales in comparison to the fact that it is Canada Day! And what better day to debut Brian K Vaughn's latest comic about a future war between Canada and the USA? Crazy right? I love timing like that. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Fuck Sticks the Badger" Finneman and Chris "The Tithes Guild" Robinson as they chat it up!

It's E3 week! That has nothing to do with comics, but damn if it isn't one of the coolest weeks of the year for us here at NOLAnerd HQ. We are continuing our coverage of the new wave of DC books in the wake of Convergence. On top of that, we are continuing to enjoy the heck out of Marvel's Secret Wars as well as the Mega Man/Sonic the Hedgehog crossover. It is the summer of events! Add to that the finale of one of our favorite Image books, and you have a great week of comics! Join NOLAnerds Matt "Super Fighting Robot" Finneman and Chris "NSFW Sudowoodo" Robinson as they tackle the week that was.

This is it! The final press conference in an absolutely massive E3 2015! Like Bethesda before them, Square Enix is debuting their brand new conference to us. Did the company the RPG built make a comeback? Or did they continue their Capcom-esque slide into obscurity?

 
Were mobile games all they talked about? Did Kingdom Hearts 3 show up in any significant capacity? What about Final Fantasy? Did 15 show up? Or anything new? What about Eidos' input? How awesome was Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Just Cause 3? Were there any surprises? Any new IP?

Coming in strong after a solid 2014 show and generating a ton of buzz during their Nintendo World Championship and the insane debut of actual Super Mario Maker gameplay, did Nintendo continue the hype train rolling? Did Zelda make a surprise appearance? What about Star Fox, their much discusses game of this year? Did smaller games like Fatal Frame and Devil's Third get the spotlight? What about their upcoming RPGs? Any new surprise games like Splatoon?

Welcome to part 5 of our E3 2015 coverage! This time we tackle one of the big dogs, Sony and the Playstation 4, a system with the most to prove since it has been enjoying first place since its launch. Can Sony continue that success?

 
After dominating in 2013 and slipping a bit in 2014 with a snooze worthy Powers TV segment and a lackluster replacement for Jack Tretton, did Sony come back strong? Did they debut any new IPs? What about Uncharted 4? Did it continue to impress? Were the rumors true about them stealing Call of Duty from Xbox? Were there any surprises in store for us? Any megaton announcements? Why do people keep calling Sony 2015 the Wish Making Genie?
 
Join NOLAnerds Matt "Horizon" Finneman and Chris "No Man's Sky" Robinson as they explain it all. Like Clarissa, but nerdier.

We are back with part 4 of 7 in our ongoing E3 2015 coverage! This time the NOLAnerds are here to discuss and chat about the excellent Ubisoft conference!

 
Last year Ubisoft ended with their traditional "one more thing" and gave us Rainbow Six: Siege. One year later, how is it faring? What about their delayed The Division? Is it still hype worthy? What about this year's "one more thing?" Did Aisha Tyler make an excellent host again? Did Assassin's Creed: Syndicate revive our passion for the franchise? Did Just Dance bring the show to a grinding halt again? Were there any surprises for us in store?

Welcome back to part 3 of the NOLAnerds 7 part E3 2015 coverage! This time the NOLAnerds check out and discuss EA's 2015 offering.

 
Last year was an all time low for EA. Nothing to show. Announcements with not even a teaser trailer. Just footage of people talking about how they want to make a game. But it is one year later. EA is armed with some of gaming's most anticipated titles. Mass Effect. Mirror's Edge: Catalyst. Star Wars: Battlefront. How did they deliver? Were there any surprises for us? Did they redeem themselves from last year? How obnoxious were the sports segments?

How was DOOM? What did we think about Dishonored 2's reveal? Did Elder Scrolls maintain a presence or was the only true reason to tune in Fallout 4?
