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

Welcome to NOLAnerd episode 147, codenamed Kakarot. Why is it codenamed that? Well why was last issue codenamed Cthullu? Who knows! We work in mysterious ways. This week the NOLAnerds draft their dream teams of superheroes, tackle week 2 of the DC 5 Years Later initiative, randomly discuss Destiny, love the hell out of Image Comics' strong females, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Can't Keep His Hands to Himself" Finneman and Chris "Loves Star Wars Episode 2" Robinson as they chat the day away!

Welcome to Episode 146, code named Cthullu. Why? Who even knows. Probably because 146 is a weird number for a title. But that has nothing to do with comics! This week the NOLAnerds dive head first into the opening week of DC's Future's End one shot initiative, where every issue is time skipped 5 years later and may or may not tie into the weekly ongoing, Future's End. We also are 'treated' to the finale of Original Sin, find out Prof X's actual original sin, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Penny-One" Finneman and Chris "Human Bed" Robinson as they tackle the week in comics!

Wow. WOW guys. This month right here. Between the crazy highs of Gamescom 2014 and the Playstation Tokyo Game Show pre-show to the insane lows of the gaming community completely mishandling at best and being virulent and awful at the worst in regards to Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian, this has been one stacked month of gaming news. Gamer as a term became practically detrimental to our preferred hobby, Playstation knocked it out of the park at Gamescom, a handful of releases graced consoles as the world prepared itself for the onslaught of the holidays, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "That's So Fetch" Finneman, Chris "Saints Row 5ever" Robinson, Garrett "Sword Art Translation Error" Platner, Mason "Monokuma" Maldonado, and Zack "Tomb Raider Holiday" St. Onge as they try and tackle this massive news filled month in style!

It's a fifth week of comics folks and we all know what that means! Annuals! And less books than usual. Which suits us and our wallets just fine here at NOLAnerd HQ considering how much I spent at San Diego last week... ouch.

So join NOLAnerds Matt "Wonder Woman Team Up" Finneman and Chris "Nail Biter" Robinson as they chat with the interwebs about comics!

This episode is brought to you 7 days late because Matt was in San Diego for Comic Con International like a true comics nerd. Sadly that meant he didn't get to read this weeks' comics until now. But the week had SO MANY great books that a show had to be done to give them the justice they deserve. This week the NOLAnerds discuss several great Batman books, the best issue of Unwritten: Apocalypse to date, read a few Original Sin tie ins, gush over Image comics, and essentially have the most high rated books (4.0s) in one single episode ever. So join NOLAnerds Matt "San Diego Bound" Finneman and Chris "Lame Ass Who Didn't Go to San Diego" Robinson as they play catch up on the weeks' quality.

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.

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?

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.

For the record, NOLAnerd Chris has the worst ideas for these little blurbs. He wanted to start it off with #Butts. I mean, come on. At least make it #Buttz. With a Z. Makes it seem edgier.

Banner week in comics folks! Despite a select few books (1 from each of the Big 2) not panning out, there was a lot to love this week. The debut of a new DC title! The return of Peter Parker! M. Marvel being delightful! The Metal Men being relevant! Mega Man hitting you in the feels! And more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Desensitized to Bachalo" Finneman and Chris "#H2ooooooh!" Robinson as they break it down like only they can! Poorly. Very poorly.

VIDJA GAMES! Things happened this month, as they always do in March, or as we like to call it, Second Christmas. Seriously. It seems like every major game that slipped from November ends up in March. This month gave us the first two exclusive heavy hitters for the next gen consoles, a Facebook buyout that shocked the internet, more PS4 sales dominance, new game announcements, the greatest licensed game to ever release, and much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Neon-ophile" Finneman, Chris "Big Boss" Robinson, Garrett "Dark Souls Master Race" Platner, Zack "Devil's Advocate" St. Onge, and introducing Tim "South Park Fan" Moseley as they break down the month in style.

Our wallets breathed a sigh of relief this week as the comic Gods deemed us worthy of having a smaller load of books to buy. It has its pros and cons, as all things do. Plus side? Smaller budget needed. Down side? This week was merely a week of average books with few standouts. This week we say goodbye to Trillium, welcome The Others into the DC family, and ponder how essential Domino is for Chris to read Punisher. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Flabbergasted" Finneman and Chris "The Others Lover" Robinson as they talk shop.

Man. These weeks are always a mixed blessing. I am always thrilled there are so many good books to read, but my wallet always hurts afterwards. What's a nerd to do but just soldier on? This week we say goodbye to several books, close out several Forever Evil tie ins, applaud Charles Soule for being awesome, and much more. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Larfleeze For Life" Finneman and Chris "Outrageous" Robinson as tey discuss an unhealthy amount of books in record time.

The best thing about the video game industry is that you simply never know what will happen. What games will be announced? What game will emerge as a surprise hit? What expected blockbuster will flounder? This month gave us many great games, a few duds, and a lot of surprises. From Sony's continuing PS4 domination to the shocking shutdown of Irrational Games to the amazing Titanfall beta to everything in between, this month's show has it all. So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Nathan Drake Sonic" Finneman, Chris "Can't Feed His Villagers" Robinson, Ronald "Lightning Jesus" Bienemy, and Mason "Praise Helix" Maldonado as they talk games and talk it well.

Welcome to the latest episode of the NOLAnerdcast, world renowned (in our own minds) as the best unprofessionally professional comics podcast around! This week the NOLAnerds tackle the subject of Guardians of the Galaxy, welcome back the Metal Men, say goodbye to a run of Daredevil, and hit a milestone of the feels with Adventure Time. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Loves Dinosaur Hat Puns" Finneman and Chris "Fuck Off Eyebrows" Robinson as they talk comics and hate on each others' opinions.

This episode the NOLAnerds tackle two age old comic nerd questions: Do you prefer long form or short form events, and what would you do as a comics CEO? The NOLAnerds tackle those questions, prepare for Wizard World New Orleans Comic Con, and discuss the trio of brand new Marvel books that launched this week. All of that plus new installments of Arrow and Shield Watch as well as tons of comic reviews makes this one jam packed episode! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Soule Fan Boy" Finneman and Chris "Hates Serenity and Firefly" Robinson as they talk about comics and stuff.

New year of video games folks! And with that new year comes a glut of new info and a dearth of new games. This month was ruled by Kickstarter, with several of the biggest releases being born from the community driven site last year or the year before. This month also brought us HUGE Playstation news from CES, a wealth of leaked info about Microsoft, numerous negative reports about Nintendo's financial future, as well as the reveal of the first wave of PC Steam Machines. So join NOLAnerds Matt "PS NOW" Finneman, Chris "Kingdom Hearts is the Devil" Robinson, Ronald "Lightning Lover" Bienemy, Mason "Understands the Kingdom Hearts Timeline" Maldonado, and Zack "Frames per Second Devil's Advocate" St. Onge as they discuss ALL THE THINGS!

SNOWPACALYPSE NOW! I am shocked we are even able to get this show out to you folks, as we have barely survived the blistering 30 degree cold and light icing of the roads here in New Orleans. We even had to TURN ON OUR HEATER! But we here at the NOLAnerdcast trudge on to give you our insights into comics. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Team Gardner" Finneman and Chris "Gardner's 'Stache" Robinson as they talk comics and try to retain their warmth.

Welcome to another installment of the NOLAnerdcast Comic Book Podcast everyone! This is the week I realized how much I enjoy doing this every week, as I dragged myself out from death's door to buy comics and record this show. Hopefully you can't tell! This week ended up being rather brief, with no episode of Agents of SHIELD and a quick and breezy selection of comics to discuss. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Dot Now Dot INH" Finneman and Chris "Storm's A Tramp" Robinson as they talk comics all day every day.

It's the end of the year and the end of an era folks. With next gen in full swing and selling like hot cakes, we begin to say goodbye to the current gen. But it will be going out in style if 2014 has anything to say about it! Not much went down this month, either in the way of news or game releases, but we are here anyway! From the cringe worthy escapades of the Spike VGX awards to another eventful Nintendo Direct, from Peggle 2 to Gran Turismo 6, we discuss it all! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Cranky About Cranky" Finneman, Chris "Lover of Kingdom Hearts Lore" Robinson, and Ronald "Mecha Kyuubi" Bienemy as they talk and then talk some more!

Episode 110 son! Thats kind of a milestone right? I like to think so. If not, oh well. This episode was filled with quality comics as well as lots of good natured hating on NOLAnerd Chris. Because if there is one thing we love to do here at NOLAnerdcast, it's make fun of Chris for all of his mistakes. The jerk. This week we had a bevy of Marvel books, welcomed Harley Quinn to the lighter side of the New 52, as well as speculate on when the comic book film bubble will burst. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Totally Schooled Chris" Finneman, and Chris "Got Totally Schooled" Robinson as they tell you about all of that and more!

Not only were we graced with the mid season finales of Agents of SHIELD and Arrow, but we also have our new record for most books released in a single week. And yet we still managed to only go 10 minutes over our normal time. Go us! This week we tackle a triple threat of Justice League books, welcome back Lazarus and Uncanny, as well as say hello to a new WWE inspired digital comic. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Painful Back Spasm" Finneman and Chris "Complete Compliance" Robinson as they try their damndest to talk comics with you.

What's this? What do we mean by saying episode 25.2? What is this madness? Well dear friends, this month is a special month. A month eight years in the making. This month not only saw the usual assortment of gaming news and the massive amounts of games November always brings, but this time we also were graced by TWO major next gen system releases. This month brought out the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One along with a full assortment of launch games. So that is why we are splitting our show into two episodes this month. In this, part 2 of our show, we discuss the games of the month. The Playstation 4 launch games. The Xbox One launch games. And all of the other games of the month. So join NOLAnerds Matt "A Link Between the Past" Finneman, Chris "Mario Party Afficionado" Robinson, and Ronald "Ms. Zurkon" Bienemy as they break it all down for you.

This month brought out the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One along with a full assortment of launch games. So that is why we are splitting our show into two episodes this month. The first, this one, is all about the gaming news of November as well as our initial impressions of the next generation of video game consoles. Everything from the massive Persona announcement to the Sony launch day press event is covered. We talk Blizzcon news, why Bungie seems to prefer Sony nowadays, and even the current state of baseball. So join NOLAnerds Matt "XBox On. XBox On! Fuck it, I'll Press a Button" Finneman, Chris "Hates Nostalgia" Robinson, and Zack "Bungie Theorist" St. Onge as they bring you part one of November.

Happy Thanksgiving NOLAnerds! This episode is going up a bit later than usual due to our insistence that we actually spend time with our families. I know right? Bunch of suckers. But fear not! There are plenty of books to discuss. Books such as a triple helping of X-Men, the return of Hawkguy...er, girl, the ongoing cesspool of suck that is Larfleeze, the end of the Geoff Johns Aquaman era, and many more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Zelda Addict" Finneman and Chris "What Was Blank Doing During Zero Year?" Robinson as they talk comics and junk and stuff.

The holiday video game season is officially in full swing! Major titles released this month, filling our time with tons to play. This month also was devoid of major game conferences, meaning the news itself of the month wasn't terribly notable, but hey. When next gen is mere weeks away, can you blame people for focusing on that alone? This month we discuss the major hitters, Batman Arkham Origin and Pokemon X/Y as well as explain why we aren't discussing several of this month's highest profile releases. Between all of that, talks on Titanfall, game resolutions, and depressing game delays, we had plenty to discuss! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Phoenix Wright Pun Aficionado" Finneman, Chris "HD Remake Hater" Robinson, Ronald "The Dark Knight" Bienemy, and Zack "The Beta Whisperer" St. Onge as they talk games, man.

It's that time of year fans! No, not Halloween. Fifth week comics! That magical time of month when the selection drops to a few books and our bank accounts don't hate us for a Wednesday. This week we tackle the latest round of DC annuals, say goodbye to the X-Men Battle of the Atom crossover, and welcome to glorious return of Neil Gaiman's Sandman to comics. So join the NOLAnerds Matt "It's on the Left" Finneman and Chris "Has no Idea What Left Means" Robinson as the welcome Halloween week in comics in style! Well, maybe not style. Or class. Or grace.

Well, our 100th episode is now in the rearview mirror, and the NOLAnerds find themselves striving to make the next 100 episodes even better. And they begin that vow with this, episode 101. We are cutting the fat from our shows, trying to bring them down to more acceptable times, as well as periodically add more features to see what sticks. But this week we find ourselves without a Shield Watch or Arrow Watch, but we make it up with a series of quality DC books and some excellent Marvel ones as well. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Tie Fighter" Finneman, and Chris "Hat Car" Robinson as they discuss, talk about, and ridicule the books of the week.

Good news bad news here folks. Good news first. WE HIT EPISODE 100! That's legit crazy pants. A huge milestone! One which should be celebrated in a spectacular fashion! But alas, that is the bad news. Do to an abrupt and surprising death in the family of one of the NOLAnerds, there was no time to make those lofty plans come to fruition. They still will, just not for this show sadly. But moving on! This week the NOLAnerds tackle the return of proper DC books, welcome the return of Arrow, check out the premiere of Coffin Hill and Superman/Wonder Woman, and much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "The Hood" Finneman and Chris "One Horn Beast" Robinson as they talk and bullshit each other for an hour.

One more folks. ONE MORE EPISODE. What are we going to do to celebrate episode 100? I have no clue. Like, at all. But hey, that's a problem for future NOLAnerdcast. This week we celebrate the glorious return of normal comic books at DC, as the gimmick Villain's Month is finally over. We also enjoy a trio of solid Vertigo titles as well as several enjoyable Marvel titles as per the norm. So join this week's NOLAnerds, Matt "Forever" Finneman and Chris "Matrix of Leadership" Robinson as they discuss the week that was.

We are so damn close to episode 100 now... maybe we could celebrate being so close to this giant milestone with a surprise guest star? Maybe an old NOLAnerd who moved away? Maybe that guys name could be Andy? Hmm. That seems like it could work! This week we bid farewell to DC's Villains Month, enjoy another installment of Battle of the Atom, and gush all over Matt Fraction's newest creator owned comic. So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Poking the Bear" Finneman, Chris "Write and the Arting" Robinson, and guest starring Andy "I'm Here" Niemann as they break it all down.

We are so precariously close to episode 100 it is starting to border on the absurd. We have no idea how to even honor such an occassion...but we still have three weeks left to worry, so that is a problem for Future Matt and Future Chris. This week brings us to the penultimate week of DCs villains month, as well as showing us several high quality Marvel books and a great issue of Fables. We talk Dickwolves. We talk Black Dynamite. And we talk comics. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Rogue Lover" Finneman and Chris "McCoy Hater" Robinson as they talk about stuff and junk.

This week continues both the slog through the DC Villain's Month and the slog towards our 100th episode! We discuss several Villains Month books that we'd rather not have, but also revel in the joy of finding a few diamonds in the rough. How did we respond to the newest crisis from DC editorial? The NOLAnerds also discuss a few Marvel books, but for the most part this was a fairly light week. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Crime Syndicate" Finneman and Chris "Mongul Quality" Robinson as they tackle the week that was.

Another week chock full of releases, another week of two nerds breaking it all down. This week marks the start of our countdown to EPISODE 100 (Say WHAAAA) as well as the start of Villain's Month, another in a trend of DC gimmick month. So what do the NOLAnerds have to say about the 3D covers? About the Forever Evil kick off issue? About the choice of villains? What about over at Marvel land where the X-Men have begun their first Marvel NOW crossover? All of these questions and more will be answered by the least professional podcasters around. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Villain Lover" Finneman and Chris "Futurama Hater" Robinson as they talk shop with you.

THE DROUGHT IS OVER MOFOS! This month was a welcome shock to the system, as evidenced by the unusually long episode today. I mean, we got a little bit of everything this month. We had gaming news in spades courtesy of several Nintendo Directs and the gigantic news filled Gamescom. We had game releases that kept us playing all month, everything from the eagerly anticipated Saints Row 4 Prez Game of the Year, to the Wii U's first salvo of holiday goodness, to a handful of high quality Japanese games for the PS3, and much more. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Xilliphiliac" Finneman, Chris "Saints Row 5eva" Robinson, Scott "Holy Shit He's Back" Brehm, Ronald "3DS Bound" Bienemy, and Zack "Question Man" St. Onge as they tackle the games and news of August 2013!

The long slow towards episode 100 continues with another riveting installment of the NOLAnerdcast! This week the nerds tackle the reality of a Ben Affleck Batman, discuss the merits of a newly redesigned Lobo, break down the ending of Trinity War, and hate some more on the fact that Villains Month is interrupting every book they read from DC. Sprinkle in a double dose of XMen books and a stellar issue of Lazarus and you have the makings of a quality podcast. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Chris Instigator" Finneman and Chris "Has No Strong Feelings for Marvel" Robinson on this wonderful comics filled journey.

Just Two Best Friends this week, yup. A regular Team 4 Star of quality. Two Nostalgia Critics. Why am I name dropping famous internet personalities? Because why not? It's hard coming up with new things to type in here every week. Like, super hard bro. But that's ok, because I can always fall back and discuss comics! Like the return of the always amazing Saga! Or a new entry into Trinity War! And other stuff. Because you know, comics. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Solo Butt Shot" Finneman and Chris "DC's Bishop" Robinson as they meander around topics and basically bullshit their way through another week of books!

This was a good week for Marvel folks. DC wasn't too shabby but Marvel knocked it away this week. This whole Marvel NOW thing has done for them what the New 52 did for DC - it got us reading books we never would have and we are now buying more from them than ever before. Also this show is no nonsense. We don't have time to waste with tangents and wise cracking. No sir. Not this week. Not when that brand new copy of Tales of Xillia for our PS3s were calling out to us. So this episode is dedicated to Tales of Xillia, for getting us in under the hour mark with a bunch of books to discuss. So join Matt "Xillia-Phile" Finneman and Chris "Grey Beard Hair" Robinson as they give it to you like it is.

The month of July is a funny month. It is the last bastion of the summer drought, but without the massive E3 news blowout that June has. However July does have one thing going for it - San Diego Comic Con, or as we like to call it, the E3 of the Masses. The two intrepid hosts of the NOLAnerdcast headed on over to Comic Con to get their hands on all the biggest upcoming games, as well as to try out the brand new PS4 and XBox One consoles. Between that, a handful of game releases and a smattering of gaming news, July gave us enough to talk about to fill up a nice show for you all! So join the NOLAnerds Matt "21-3" Finneman, Chris "Saints Row 4 Pres" Robinson, Ronald "Saints Row 4 Pres GOTY" Bienemy, Mason "Japanophile" Maldonado, and introducing sit in guest star Zack "WoW" St. Onge as they discuss games and game related shenanigry.

Did you miss us? I sure missed us. But I promise we had a great reason to skip last week's show! That reason? San Diego Comic Con suckas! That's right! The NOLAnerds were out in San Diego living life, spending money, and being absolutely nerdy. Also this week after a brief hiatus we welcome back Ashley to the show! And she actually read books! CRAZY! This week we discuss Comic Con happenings, talk a bevy of indie books, enjoy the third entry in Trinity War, and talk random things all over the place. So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Larfleeze Sadness" Finneman, Chris "Doesn't Get Green Team" Robinson, and Ashley "I Can Read" Butler for this weeks episode!

After last weeks absurd deluge of titles, we get a brief reprieve. This week granted us FOUR brand new title launches all of high quality stuff. We debate the merits of a Geoff Johns-less Green Lantern universe as well as the continuing adventures of Green Arrow and the Earth 2 Wonders. So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Robot Masters" Finneman and Chris "DoomBot Hater" Robinson as they talk comics, man.

We discuss every major E3 conference from Microsoft to Sony to EA to Ubisoft to Nintendo.

We also talk games that we played including a discussion on one of the greatest games of the year, The Last of Us! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Clicker" Finneman, Chris "Bloater" Robinson, Ronald "Runner" Bienemy, and Mason "Stalker" Maldonado as they talk all games, all the time!

Holy Tons of Comic Books Batman! This is hands down the most filled week of comics we have ever seen. Seriously. Our wallets hurt afterwards. Our minds were drained from reading them for hours on end. It was epic my friends. Epic. This week saw everything from a major DC launch title, to practically every Marvel book we actually read, to one of the greatest crossovers ever, all the way to a brand new comic straight from the Greg Rucka House of Amazing. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Pizza Dog" Finneman, Chris "No Feels" Robinson, and Ashley "Booty Call" Butler as they break down a truly exhaustive week in comics.

This episode is brought to you by Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, because it is super awesome and I kept playing it during the podcast, much to my cohost's chagrin. But that is neither here nor there. This is all about comics! This week we delve into the finale of Age of Ultron, discuss the ramifications for Marvel as a whole due to it, see what Green Lantern New Guardians is like post finale, love the hell out of Wonder Woman, and debut our new scoring system! That's right. We are now working on a 5 Star system to better show our love for books. So without further ado, join NOLAnerds Matt "Loves The Last of Us" Finneman and Chris "Hates Good Things and Ruins Matt's Fun" Robinson as they talk comics.

Now, I know what you are thinking. NOLAnerds, why is there a missing week in your podcast? Why that is a wonderful question. While we pride ourselves in doing this every week since we started, one of us was in Canada Land last week, and thus we could not do the show =/ Its ok though! This week we talk a bit about last week anyway. One big ol happy comic book family. This week we talk about the two big guns of DC, Superman Unchained and the start of Scott Snyder's Batman: Year Zero arc. We also discuss the X-Men Hellfire Academy saga and many other things, such as the always wonderful Mega Man/Sonic crossover. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Refuses to Keep His Pants On" Finneman, Chris "Continuously Thrown Under the Bus" Robinson, and Ashley "Throws Chris Under the Bus" Butler as they talk one good week in comics.

This was an odd week. It was a notorious fifth week, which meant vastly fewer books to read than usual, as well as another round of annuals. But this also marked the very first NOLAnerdcas where Chris was absent! I would have cried myself to sleep had it not been for the always wonderful Ashley stepping in to save the day! So jump right on in to one of the quickest shows we've done - minus all of the random tangents we go off into. Join NOLAnerds Matt "MEGA MAN SONIC CROSSOVER" Finneman and Ashley "Could Not Care Less About Your Dumb Crossover" Butler and listen to them chat about comics and junk!

Sometimes you get a month that has few notable releases, but a ton of information. That, was this month. The bulk of what we learned about the industry this month was contained in the Microsoft reveal of the XBox 1, and we have an entire show dedicated to just that (Ep18) But there was a lot more to get excited about this month! Star Wars got a new master. DC met Scribblenauts. Nintendo scored a Sonic coup. Tim Schafer wowed us with his newest Kickstarter pitch. Far Cry entertained us with Blood Dragon. The iPad became the newest home to Star Wars: KOTOR. All of this and more gets discussed on this, our May video game podcast!

She's back folks! For a bit at least. Newest NOLAnerd correspondent Ashley has returned, and brings with it a fresh outlook on a lot of ongoing books. Just how easy is it to jump into a series in the middle of a story? She helps us find out! Also on the docket, a tribute and a fond farewell to the Geoff Johns era of Green Lantern which ended this week after over 100 issues and nearly a decade of good times. The finale is here, and the other books bring us nice epilogues. This is also one of the biggest weeks we have ever had, with well over 20 books to review! It got crazy up in here folks! So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Goodbye Hal" Finneman, Chris "Surly As Fuck" Robinson, and Ashley "Leaving for...Reasons" Butler as they try and tackle the biggest storm of books they have ever done! And completely out of our normal order due to the fact that Ashley had to leave early.

Big day in gaming news folks. So big that we are dedicating a whole show to it! Microsoft finally unveiled the next generation XBox, the XBox One. Along with the new name, we were hit with a ton of information about the console, some good, some divisive, and some downright bad to many. The internet exploded with a mixture of anger and confusion, and we were there to sort through it all and give our opinions. What do we think about Kinect 2.0? About TV Connectivity? About Call of Duty Ghosts? About Always On and Used Game Fees? What about the new controller, or the games that were shown? What did we like? What did we dislike? What were we indifferent on? Will we buy one? Did we enjoy this conference more than Sony's reveal for the PS4?

All these questions answered and more on this very special video game episode of the NOLAnerdcast. So join NOLAnerds Matt "TV!" Finneman, Chris "Sports!" Robinson, and Andy "Call of Duty!" Niemann as they break down the press conference in the nerdiest ways possible.

As the weeks tick by and the impending departure of Andy looms over us, we tentatively greet a possible new member into the fold, Ashley. Will she become NOLAnerd Ashley? Will she prove to be as awesome as we think she is? Does she think Nightwing's ass is all that and a bag of chips? Answers to all of these and more, coming at you! This week we discuss the merits of Age of Ultron, a time jump in two Marvel books, get surprised by a major game changer in Fables, and many more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Genesis Unit" Finneman, Chris "Cancelpocalypse" Robinson, and introducing Ashley "Nightwing's Butt" Butler as they break it all down like only they can!

What a strange week this was. Normally the second week of the month is a major outing with a ton of books, but this week seemed positively mild. Maybe it is because Marvel blew their load last week with all of their biggest books. Maybe it is because DC managed to somehow screw up the shipping order of their Green Lantern mega finale. Maybe it is because hey, sometimes things don't always work like clockwork. I blame Brian K Vaughn for not having Saga come out again until August. Anyway! This week the NOLAnerds discuss all there is to talk about in the week that was. So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Green Lantern Woes" Finneman, Chris "Suicide Squad Virgin" Robinson, and Andy "Still About to Ditch Us" Niemann as they talk nerdy, just for you.

The name pretty much says it all folks! The NOLAnerds were on site at local comic book shop and friends of the show BSI Comics to do a live recording of the NOLAnerdcast! We sat, watched, listened, and bullshitted with each other as well as the loyal comic loving customers! We review a large amount of the books on hand this year, including a new Avatar: The Last Airbender tale, offerings from DC and Marvel, books about the new animated blocks featuring Beware the Batman and Hulk Agents of Smash, a Mass Effect title and more! We also interview several local artists and even meet back up with the infamous Monty and the Mongoose!

So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Move over Monty, We Want to Speak to Mongoose" Finneman, Chris "Seriously Monty, Stop Saying Black Hitler" Robinson, and briefly featuring Scott "New Baby Overlord" Brehm as they take you on a journey through the wonder that was Free Comic Book Day 2013 at BSI Comics.

It always seems that the months with fewer actual game releases are always the ones chock full of video game news. Take April for instance - not much in the way of games, but man did we get a lot of movement in the industry. We got a lot of rumors made true news on the XBox Durango. We witnessed the death of a major game company. We got more dire news on the Wii U alongside a handful of new 3DS announcements. We learned of multiple major games hitting later this year. And we also got a few notable titles to play this month, from indie powerhouses to AAA flagship fighting games. So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Guacamelee" Finneman, Chris "Doesn't Understand the Greatness of the Name Guacamelee" Robinson, Ronald "Wii U? More Like P-U" Bienemy, and Andy "Injustice Lord" Niemann as they break down April for all its gaming goodness.

Welcome to another installment in what we like to call, the NOLAnerd OG Saga! That is where we cut out the riff raff and only shower you with the dulcet tones of the original co-creators of the NOLAnerdcast! Prepare to be amazed! Or at least, relieved. Because with only two of us the show really kind of moves along at a brisk pace. It's almost refreshing. This week we bid farewell to the Before Watchmen saga, lament the lack of a lot of competition in 4th week books, discuss the simply horrendous new animated Iron Man movie: Rise of the Technovore, and more! So join the OG NOLAnerds, Matt "Loki-isms" Finneman, and Chris "Die Hard Flash" Robinson and take this journey with us!

It's always a bit sad the week after a big milestone episode. 76 doesn't have nearly the same charm to it as 75 does. But this week is almost even MORE special! It's one of our biggest weeks yet! A huge slew of quality books including Saga, more Age of Ultron, another round of Batman books introducing new villains and new characters, and part one of the epic Mega Man and Sonic crossover! We also have a special treat, our first call in to the show! Mega fan Paxson calls in to discuss with us why he isn't particularly keen on Saga - see how we agree and disagree in a special segment! So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Sonic Man" Finneman, Chris "Food Poisoned" Robinson, Scott "Goldballs" Brehm, and Andy "Saga Defender" Niemann as they break it all down for you, issue by issue!
