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

Well the comics show got a 2.0 revamp name, why not the gaming? This is officially episode 40, but that's all in the past! This month the NOLAnerdcast crew gathered together once more to pay tribute to the month that came before us. This month we discuss things like the Rock Paper Shotgun interview with Peter "Hype Man" Molyneux, the polarizing release of Majora's Mask 3D, the even more polarizing release of The Order: 1886, Batman going mature, the mere possibility of a Legend of Zelda Netflix show, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Sir Galahad" Finneman, Chris "Dying Dead Island Light" Robinson, Andy "Banjo Lover" Niemann, Mason "Resident Evil World Champ" Maldonado, Doug "Late to the Mordor" Rosenthal, and Dolly "Deku" Pop as they break it all down for you!

In a truly shocking turn, nobody is on assignment this week!! Which would be great if all the shows didn't decide to enter their spring break. This week we talk about Fiash Mooney, the end of Agent Carter, and the mysteries of Nanda Parbat.

This episode brought to you later than usual courtesy of the south having absolutely no idea what to do when roads ice over! Our comics arrived a day late to BSI, so we are making due with what we can! This was another big week, bringing us the long awaited debut of Spider-Gwen, Rob Guillory making a splash at Marvel, Guy Gardner fighting a baby, a belated Valentine's Day with Ms. Marvel, and much much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Rapid Fire" Finneman and Chris "Speed Demon" Robinson with guest host Andy "Hop to It" Niemann as the NOLAnerds try and race through the show!

Matt is back but Andy went on assignment. Maybe I should go on assignment to. No respect no respect at all. Anyway we talked about Gotham's issues, the awesomeness of The Flash and why Peggy Carter is better than Agents of Shield (part 1 million).

What's that? NOLAnerds have officially entered (albeit 15 weeks late...) into the vaunted 2.0 era?!? THAT'S RIGHT! We, much like the comics we love, have decided to arbitrarily relaunch, rename, and renumber ourselves! Because why not? So welcome to 2.0 episode 16, codename Spinarak! This week we discuss the megaton of Spider-Man in the MCU, the newly announced books of DC's Divergence, welcome back the heavily delayed Secret Six, tackle the latest Black Vortex space saga entry, and more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Ghost Hater" Finneman and Chris "Pants Ripper" Robinson as they talk shop!

2015 is here! After a year that could only be described as "tumultuous," the fresh year has arrived, promising a truly epic 365 days of gaming. However, in true January fashion, not much actually happened this month. While sparse on news AND game releases, the NOLAnerds nonetheless do what they do best: arguing back and forth about things of no great importance! This show we chat about Nintendo's inane naming schemes, Microsoft's Xbox plans with Windows 10, the release of Saints Row 4's swan song, and more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Grim Fandango" Finneman, Chris "Saints Row 5ever" Robinson, Ronald "Handheld Hater" Bienemy, Mason "Tank Controls" Maldonado, Zack "Handsome Jack" St Onge, Andy "Majora's Teet Sucker" Niemann, Dolly "Epileptic Gamer" Pop, and Scott "He Was There?" Brehm as they chat you up!
