So enjoy this slight reprieve while you can! This week the NOLAnerds look at the continuing adventures of the DC weeklies, continue to mourn the impending end of Fables, gush over Ms. Marvel, and bemoan the state of She-Hulk, and much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Lady Matt" Finneman and Chris "Hipster Chris" Robinson as they discuss books, news, and other stuff!

Comics! Man, do you know how hard it is to constantly think of something to put here? I mean, this is comics episode 137. That's like 130 more than I could reasonably do in a witty manner. So hey, let's just talk facts. Comics came out this week. Stuff like Lazarus. And more DC weeklies. Rocket Raccoon debuted. Other stuff happened! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Forever" Finneman and Chris "JokerXSuperman" Robinson as they talk about stuff. And junk.

Thank you for joining us in part 5 of our 5 part series detailing the five major press conferences of E3 2014. We end our series with a look at the Nintendo Live Stream "conference" and discuss the various game reveals and gameplay details.

 
So, Nintendo. Did they break the mold and give us something new? Or did they stick to their strengths and bring us new installments of beloved franchises? How did Super Smash Bros look? What about the new Zelda? Did Metroid show up? What about Star Fox? How were games like Yarn Yoshi and Hyrule Warriors looking? Where there any true surprises at all? 
 
Listen to the final E3 podcast to find out all the answers and to hear our opinions on the Big N's live stream E3 coverage!

Thank you for joining us in part 4 of our 5 part series detailing the five major press conferences of E3 2014. Next up we close out Day 1 of the show with the other major press conference, the Sony Playstation one.

 
Fresh off a year of unparalleled success and positive PR momentum, did the undisputed "winner" of last years E3 win once more? How were the 1st party games looking? Did Destiny make a comeback appearance? Were there any surprise game reveals? What about indie support? Did Sony tackle the PS3 or Vita in a significant way? How about their Playstation NOW initiative or their Project Morpheus CR headset? Which third party games showed up to lend their support? How jaw droppingly gorgeous did Uncharted 4 look?
 
Answers to these and many more will be revealed as the NOLAnerds break down exactly what they thought of the Sony Playstation E3 press conference!

Thank you for joining us in part 3 of our 5 part series detailing the five major press conferences of E3 2014. Next up we discuss how Ubisoft fared with their press conference.

 
Coming off of a great 2013 and delivering us Child of Light a few months ago and Watch Dogs mere weeks ago, Ubisoft is in a prime position to once again dominate the talk of E3. 
 
Will they end the show on another show stopper announcement? Will Aisha Tyler kill it for the 3rd year in a row of being a great host? How is The Division looking one year later? What is the latest Assassin's Creed looking like? Any crazy new game reveals that will appeal to everyone? What about the recently revealed Far Cry 4? 
 
Answers to all of these and more are conveniently located in this very podcast! So let the NOLAnerds break it all down for you because they are just nice like that
