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

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.
