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

Happy Halloween Nola Nerd fans! This week is a special week, which helps alleviate the sadness that comes from no longer being on our 50th or our 52nd episode. Not only is this a rare 5th week in the month for comics which always means great annuals and surprises, but it is also Halloween! We have several holiday themed email questions to answer as well as discussions on the big news of Disney and LucasFilms becoming one. But really when it all comes down to it, you are here for the comics. Right? Right. So without further ado, please join Nola Nerds Matt "Lazy Green Lantern" Finneman, Chris "Fat Flash" Robinson, and Scott "Bum Batman" Brehm as they break down the week that was in the world of comics.

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.
