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

BAM! Episode 26! Take that fictional mom that always told me I'd never amount to anything. Look at me now! This week the Nola Nerds talk shop and talk books, as well as talking about whatever random tangent seizes their minds as they go. Turns out that happens a lot. Like, a lot a lot. This week tune in to listen to Matt "I Cream My Pants for Iron Fist" Finneman, Chris "Colossanaut" Robinson, Barbie "Zatanna is Cool" Cure, and Andy "Suck it Haters! TWO Star Wars Books This Week" Niemann as they break the week down in depth and with that added layer of zany banter you've come to know and love. Time stamps below:

The Nola Nerds are at it again folks! Bringing along with them a gaggle of guest stars, Matt and Chris work hard to break down the month of March in video games for your, pleasure! Everything from the Kickstarter craze to the supposed leaked specs of the Playstation "Orbis" and the XBox "Durango" to discussions on the biggest games of March like Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Street Fighter x Tekken to downloadable gem Journey to the shockingly great Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations. All the games and news, big and small get broken down by our crack panel of experts. Experts like Matt "I Platinumed Naruto" Finneman, Chris "Addicted like a Crackwhore to MLB The Show" Robinson, Ronald "I Hate that the Wii gets all the Good JRPGS" Bienemy, Mason "Still Essentially Useless" Maldonado, Josh "Left Us Halfway" Bowman, and introducing Andy "Smoker's Lung" Dileon. 

At roughly the 40 - 45 min mark we shift focus from gaming news to games themselves.

And at 1h44m, we hate hardcore on Ethan for missing out on the recording.

7 months later, how do the books of the New 52 stack up to how we originally perceived them? Back in the olden times - back before a good mic, before a good software program, but still with the same level of professionalism - we listed the 52 books of DC's relaunch from the best to the worst. Have any books made a significant jump for better or worse? Have we changed our minds or held true to our first impressions? Join Matt and Chris and find out!
