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

Wow! Almost two hours long. That sure is daunting. I mean, I don't even know if I could sit through two hours of people talking about comics. Wait...what's that? These Nola Nerds are pretty entertaining to listen to? They go off on amusing tangents and verbally abuse one another? AND they know their stuff? Hmm...ok. I'm in.

And that right there is how I mentally picture what our fans go through when they see how long this episode is. This week we have several, SEVERAL! good emails to answer, we break down every single one of this weeks' Zero Issues from DC, as well as give you all the news you need to know about the comics world! Join Nola Nerd OG Trio Matt "Proto Man" Finneman, Chris "Jitterbug" Robinson, and Scott "Scarlet Spoiler" Brehm as they break down everything into easily digestible bites of awesome for you.

Ah August. Not quite the Game-ageddon that the holiday season is, but definitely not the infinite drought of gaming sadness that June and July usually are. It is essentially the red headed step child of the gaming calender. However! This month gave us relatively lots to talk about in the gaming world. From gaming expos like GamesCom and PAX Prime to new info on the Wii U and Vita to a few new game announcements, to the actual releases of the month running the gamut from retail to downloadable to mobile. We talk about them all! And then quickly regress into several tangents relating to anything from motion gaming merits to the qualifications of a handheld to the big question of them all: Who sucks more this gen? Capcom or Square-Enix? 

Join the Nola Nerds Matt "Captain Quark" Finneman, Chris "Metroplex" Robinson, Scott "Madden Madness" Brehm, and Ronald "Persona" Bienemy as they break down the month of August so you don't have to!
