It's a totally vanity project yet again as Nola Nerds Chris and Andy (and like 10 seconds of Matt) sit down and record a commentary of the most succesful Power Rangers movie. Marvel at the awful CGI! Shudder at the complete lack of Bulk and Skull! View the completely unnecessary costume changes! If you listened to our Digimon commentary you know what to expect. Sync it up and let the magic unfold!

This week also gave us two new Marvel NOW premieres, as well as the continuation of the epic Rot World crossover. Emails, current events, Arrow Watch, and more await you! Join Nola Nerd co-creators Matt "First Lantern" Finneman and Chris "Kyuubi" Robinson as they take you to school on the week in comics. Time stamps below:

Here we are folks! The end of our humble countdown. And of course by humble I mean the most definitive list of awesome that has ever been compiled in relation to video games. The Nola Nerds are here to bring you the greatest twenty games in the history of our great hobby, and we do it in the same not at all professional style you know and love. We also end our list with a realization of not only what the greatest game is, but of what the best system has been of all time. This time we talk about everything from the best entry in a time honored franchise, to the most memorable trip to the sea ever, to the greatest puzzle comedy game around, to the best fighting game we have ever played, and many more. Do you love gaming? Join us as we join the Nola Nerds Matt "Kefka" Finneman, Chris "Chell" Robinson, Andy "Hugo" Niemann, Mason "Lavos" Maldonado, and Smoker's Cough Andy "Dr. Light" Dileon, with a brief way-to-exhausted-to-participate appearance by Ronald "Drake" Bienemy as they break down the greatest twenty games ever.
