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

So turns out NOLAnerd Chris is so committed to doing this podcast, he will even do it on his deathbed. Which just creates more wonderfully humorous moments for Matt! So listen up for a new action packed episode of the NOLAnerdcast! (Spoiler: Does not actually contain action) This week the nerds discuss a bevy of quality new books. Everything from a trio of Green Lantern spin-offs, a depressing issue of Saga, the continuing dominance of the Bruce Timm universe, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Bruce Timm-ophile" Finneman and Chris "Fakes Being Sick" Robinson as they discuss and talk about all things comics!

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?

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?

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

How did the big MS fare about last year's bad policy tainted PR nightmare? Has Phil Spencer lived up to his promise of being the anti Don Mattrick? 
 
Did the January mega leak prove to be true? What were the surprise exclusives? Which third party studios showed up? Has Microsoft successfully courted the indies to counter Sony's indie heavy initiative?
 
All of these questions and more are answered in our NOLAnerd breakdown of the 2014 XBox Press Conference!

This week was a refreshing breather from the past few weeks worth of comics. In an odd twist, Marvel had a very strong showing book quantity wise for us this week, and there was nary a Vertigo or an Image book to be found! This week we discussed the difficulty of directing Ant-Man, celebrate the return of a book that has been missing from our lives, get shocked by Original Sin, try our damnedest to get Chris to say "The Others" and much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Angry Iron Fist" Finneman and Chris "Loves The Others" Robinson and kinda sorta featuring the return of Ashley "Where Am I?" Rose Butler as they talk and junk.
