Well here we are folks. No new milestone to speak of today. No 200th episode. No 50th episode. Just an episode commemorating freaking Wobbuffet and some killer comics. This week we continue the weird amalgamation of Secret Wars tie ins alongside post Secret Wars relaunches. We enjoy some new Image debuts. We welcome a whole buncha Batman into our lives. And we continue our love affair with Starfire. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Sex Crimz" Finneman and Chris "Bloodstone" Robinson as they talk it up for you.

September was a massive month for Sony. Between being the only console maker with a real presence at this year's Tokyo Game Show to releasing a ton of games to announcing its first price drop, to celebrating 20 years in America, this was a big month for them. This month gave us our first taste of the holiday gaming rush with Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain and Destiny: Taken King as well as a wealth of downloadable goodies. So join NOLAnerds Matt "LEGO-riffic" Finneman and Chris "Hates Fun and Joy" Robinson as they nerd it up.

We had a volley of quality DC books, several new Image debuts, and so much more!

Something seems special about this week's comics show. Maybe it's because it's a fifth week? Fewer comics...more annuals... no, that doesn't sound right. Maybe it is because THIS IS THE NOLANERDCAST'S TWO HUNDREDTH COMICS EPISODE?? It's hard to believe it has been four years and some change since we began this little endeavor. So come and join NOLAnerds Matt "Craves a High Five" Finneman and Chris "Loves Pokemon Porn" Robinson as they celebrate this crazy milestone.

But until then, let us reflect on the month that graced us with quality mobile titles and indie games galore!

We also discuss the pros and cons of the preorder culture that permeates the industry. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Indie Gamer" Finneman and Chris "Mobile Initiate" Robinson as they talk to you about stuffs!

This was an oddly nostalgic week of comics for the NOLAnerds. It felt like it did back when we first began. A pull list chock full of DC comics with a handful of Marvel offerings. Not a single Image book or indie book in sight. It was a bit odd to tell the truth. But what a quality week it was! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Hank Johnson" Finneman and Chris "President Smiley" Robinson as they break it all down for you.

E3 has come and gone. Gamescom is weeks away. We are knee deep in the gaming drought of summer 2015. The only major release of note this summer has been Batman: Arkham Knight, but the majority of quality games this summer have arrived on the digital front. Games like Vanishing of Ethan Carter, King's Quest, Tembo the Badass Elephant, the Fall, and many more. We also got inundated with Dragon Quest news, sad farewell to an industry legend, and recoiled in horror at the evil empire named Konami. So join NOLAnerdcast members Matt "Dragon Quest OG" Finneman and Chris "King Graham" Robinson as they chat it up!

It is a rare 5th week this time around on the NOLAnerdcast, but it certainly doesn't feel that way! Sure, DC is offering us the normal salvo of annuals, but with Secret Wars still going strong and with the return of both Lazarus AND Sex Criminals, Marvel and Image are bringing in the quality! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Ikari" Finneman and Chris "Sunkern" Robinson as they chit chat about comic book soup for the alcoholic soul!

Matt's on vacation again so once again Chris is here doing the show all by his lonesome. Thankfully, there are some good books to ease his pain. This week Gail Simone hits her stride with Secret Six, Battleworld: Siege redeems the name, and Trees continues to baffle.

WHILE THE MATT'S AWAY, CHRIS WILL PLAY!


Despite being down a co-host, Chris valiantly struggled on to deliver a whopper show all by himself. He did this in spite of his head cold, achy back, dry mouth, coughing, sneezing, sniffling, and all around general miserableness because at the end of the day Chris loves all of you like his children....Wait Chris hates children. Chis loves you all like his dog.

Book of the week: Archie or Civil War. I can't decide or did I already on the show Listen to find out.

 

Times:

 

Eh......thats not happening this week. You'll see. You'll all see....

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?

Another year, another Nintendo Direct pre recorded Nintendo conference! The NOLAnerds are back with part 6 of 7 in their E3 2015 coverage. So, how did Nintendo do?

 
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?

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 did Microsoft do this year? Did they follow up on their solid 2014 performance? Was it once again all about the games? Did Phil Spencer deliver on his promise of this year being their best year ever? Did they branch out from the yearly cycle of Halo>Gears>Forza>Fables? What were the surprises this year? Any megaton announcements? What about Rare? What have they been up to? Find out all of this and more as NOLAnerds Matt "Cuphead" Finneman and Chris "Mugman" Robinson recap the show for you

Welcome to Part 1 of the NOLAnerds' 7 part epic coverage of the E3 2015 Press Conferences! First up we have Bethesda, with their first ever press conference! 

 
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? And speaking of Fallout 4, what did we think of the long time in the making reveal? Did the gameplay impress? Were there any surprises in store for us? Was it worth the wait?

Boy it sure has been a bit hasn't it? The NOLAnerds didn't do a dedicated show for April due to the lack of big news or big releases, but there was still enough that we decided to break it down in a rapid fire fashion during our May show!

Between the latest issue of Secret Wars and the newest wave of Convergence, both of the Big 2 are knee deep into their summer events! Alongside those we also have major reveals like who is Femme Thor, is Howard the Duck still good, and how awesome is Saga still? All this and more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Blah" Finneman and Chris "Insert Witty Name" Robinson as they chit chat!

Do androids dream of electric sheep? Was that a set up only to make a Mareep joke since we seem incapable of dropping our dumb Pokemon naming scheme? Yes. Yes it was, and yes we are.

For our 4th consecutive year, the NolaNerds made their prescence known at BSI Comcss during the annual free Comic Book Day event. We sat around and chatted with local artists and writers, looked at the most recent offerings from the Big 2 and other companies and Chris interviewed a "new Matt" to replace the old one. We also talk about Avengers: Age of Ultron so spoilers I guess? Judging from the box office you've already seen it so it just doesn't even matter. Listen and enjoy!

So NolaNerdCast HQ is kind of a revolving door sometimes. Normally this is not a problem but this week someone started a conversation as soon as they walked in the door. As a result, I had to be up extra early so I could edit it out to provide a seamless audio version for our listeners. There's no real point to this, I just wanted to tell someone and I can tell that you are a good listener. The show itself? I mean we talk about Olicity (Several times), Law and Order: Marvel Style, and the wardrobe upgrade that joining the League of Assassins brings.

Today is a momentous occasion for our little TV show podcast. For the first time, every single show we cover had a new episode that aired last week. An exciting and exhausting prospect to be sure. This week we talk the neutering of the "Calvary", that corridor fight from Daredevil, and the two part Atom crossover.

The NOLAnerds "converge" on each other to discuss the massive debut of the company wide major comics event, DC's Convergence! Old is new again as the NOLAnerds relive their favorite pre-New 52 heroes in their original glory. But DC isn't the only game in town, as a massive five Image books flood the discussion with their quantity AND quality. We discuss everything from the history of Saga's Marko, to the over saturation of Rocket Raccoon, to how glorious it is to have Greg Rucka writing Renee Montoya again, and so much more! So join NOLnerds Matt "Converging" Finneman and Chris "Muppet" Robinson and guest star Andy "Instigator" Niemann as the talk comics!

What happened to episode 22? That is an excellent question, and one I have no answer for. Apparently we forgot to upload it. Too bad too, it was a doozy with two dozen comics reviewed and discussed! MAYBE ONE DAY! Until then, enjoy the final week before DC throws everyone a curve ball with Convergence. In fact, this was a week full of endings and one new beginning courtesy of another quality Image debut. We say goodbye to two of our DC weeklies, the final round of DC books, but we welcome our new summer event overlord as well. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Clue Master" Finneman and Chris "Talon's Back" Robinson as they break it down for you all nice like.

To the surprise of none of us, March was once again a major powerhouse in gaming. "The Spring Holiday" I like to call it when no one is listening so they won't make fun of me. This year, March takes on a special significance since it marked the release of what many are calling the first "true next gen must have game" with the release of the PS4's Bloodborne. But this month was also chock full of gaming news from GDC 2015, the shock that Nintendo is going mobile, and the release of a ton of insanely high quality indie games. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Axiom Verge-tastic" Finneman, Chris "Next Time On" Robinson, Garrett "Salty" Platner, Mason "Revelations Master" Maldonado, Ronald "BloodBorn for This" Bienemy, Doug "Ori" Rosenthal, Andy "Last Gen Holdout" Niemann and Dolly "Half Life 3 Confirmed" Pop as they break it all down!

Despite the mascot of this episode being that terrible abomination of a Pokemon Pichu, this was a great week for comics! We got an unprecedented triple release of Image debuts, the final pre-Convergence issues of a handful of DC titles, Batman: Eternal's big bad was finally unveiled, Squirrel Girl continued to dominate our hearts, Future's End broke our hearts, and so much more went down! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Brother Eye" Finneman, Chris "Two Calls" Robinson, and Andy "Silk the Shocker" Niemann as they chitchat their way into your hearts!

The NolaNerds are here to chew bubblegum and review TV and we are all out of bubblegum. We discuss why Sif isn't on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the talkiness of Powers, and the merits of Sharlto Copley.

t's a lighter comics week finally, allowing the NOLAnerds' wallets to relax a bit. This week we bid a fond farewell to the final Charles Soule DC offering, welcome Princess Leia to the Marvel universe, and enjoy a double helping of Jeff Lemire premieres. Or Jeff "Premieres" if you will. Man I am hilarious. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Rogue Jordan" Finneman, Chris "Secret Grayson Organization" Robinson and guest starring Andy "Star Wars" Niemann as they welcome the week that was.

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!

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!

The shows are BACK BABY!

 
Midseason breaks are over, and all of our shows have returned in glorious form. And we even got a new show to boot, the excellent Agent Carter, subbing in for the inconsistently enjoyable Agents of SHIELD show.
 
This week we chat about Gotham, Agent Carter, the awesomeness of Flash and Arrow, and  Constantine. It's a doozy!

Welcome to the 75th annual Hunger Games! Wait, that doesn't sound right at all. But it sounds way cooler than "Welcome to the episode of the NOLAnerdcast Comics Podcast that would be equivalent to Ledyba from Pokemon Gold/Silver. God. What a lame Pokemon.

So join NOLAnerds Matt "Little League" Finneman, Chris "Ginger Apologist" Robinson, and Andy "Academy" Niemann as they talk about the biggest week of comics in 2015 so far.

Pay no attention to the fact that this episode came out well after 2014. We had to make room for our epic live streamed Twitch Game of the Year show! (Check it out on Youtube!) But now we are back with all the news and all of the (admittedly few) games of December. We chat Geoff Keighley's Game Awards show, the 20th Anniversary Playstation Experience conference, Bienemy's love affair with Guilty Gear Xrd, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Drake Lover" Finneman, Chris "Arkham Knight" Robinson, Ronald "Ky Kiske" Bienemy, Andy "New Order" Niemann, and introducing Dolly "Majora's Mask" Pop as they break down the month for you!

The NOLAnerds are here with the third installment of their weekly comic book based TV recap show! Do we utilize our comics show theme of naming episodes after Pokemon? Because if we do this is totally episode Venusaur. But who knows. We will figure that out later. This is a shorter show since 2 of the 5 shows this week didn't air a new episode. Our itinerary included: 

 
Arkham Origins (Gotham Watch)
 
Under the Hood (Arrow Watch)

The NOLAnerds are back with another look at a month in the world of gaming. This was both a great month for game releases, and a sad month for the gaming industry. We were blessed with great game releases, but also plagued by the seemingly never ending world of GamerGate.  This month the nerds discuss that ongoing clusterfuck, chat about the info bomb that was Super Smash Bros Wii U, chat about the latest NPD sales figures and what that means for the holidays, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Sunset Overjoyed" Finneman, Chris "Korra-licious" Robinson, Garrett "Trifecta" Platner, Zack "Mordor Salesman" St. Onge, Mason "Revelations 2" Maldonado, Ronald "Late to the Party" Bienemy, and Tim "Pokemaniac" Moseley as the talk about games and games and games!

Happy Halloween! It's the comics episode no one has been waiting for! The one named after the stupid banana tree with a face, Meganium! Still not sure why we are doing this Pokemon naming scheme, but whatever! This week the NOLAnerds bid farewell to Wonder Woman as we know her, discuss the triple threat of the weeklies, brace ourselves for another Saga hiatus, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Old Finn" Finneman and Chris "Loves Mega Man" Robinson as they do what they do best. Or at least what they do adequately.

So join NOLAnerds Matt "White Lantern" Finneman, Chris "Lamb of God" Robinson, and Andy "Sleepy Hollow" Niemann as they discuss the week for your pleasure!

With our 150th episode behind us, the NOLAnerds continue their never ending trudge towards the next great podcast milestone. And they do it in style this week, with several new debuts and crossovers and weeklies to discuss. We have also entered the full swing of TV season, with FOUR superhero shows to discuss. This week we hit up everything from new hipster Batgirl to the scary world of Scott Snyder's Wytches, to the classic Batman vs Justice League story, to a very magic and witch heavy week, to everything in between. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Justice Buster" Finneman and Chris "Cthullu's Bride" Robinson as they talk comics!

September is upon us! The summer drought has ended! Let the deluge of games BEGIN! This month brought us everything from the Tokyo Game Show to the release of the best selling new IP of all time, the highly anticipated Destiny and so much more! The NOLAnerds discuss the latest Naruto release, talk about the poor sales for great games on systems with small install bases, give their own opinions on the Destiny phenomenon, anticipate the new Shadows of Mordor game, and scratch their heads at the odd PS3 JRPG rush. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Sunsinger" Finneman, Chris "Naruto Eye Roll" Robinson, Ronald "Xillia" Bienemy, Mason "Needs A Vita" Maldonado, Zack "Shadows of Mordor Believer" St. Onge, and Andy "Smash Bro" Niemann as they talk shop!

We code named this episode Durango. It has nothing to do with the XBox One. Or the car. Or anything else named Durango. Name just sounds fun. This was a special week. Chris actually had more books than Matt! That never happens. This week the NOLAnerds tackled more five years later DC books, ventured once more into Multiversity, got a double dose of X-Men, welcomed back Deadly Class, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Purple Reign" Finneman and Chris "Shuttered" Robinson as they talk comics.
