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

Man. These weeks are always a mixed blessing. I am always thrilled there are so many good books to read, but my wallet always hurts afterwards. What's a nerd to do but just soldier on? This week we say goodbye to several books, close out several Forever Evil tie ins, applaud Charles Soule for being awesome, and much more. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Larfleeze For Life" Finneman and Chris "Outrageous" Robinson as tey discuss an unhealthy amount of books in record time.

The best thing about the video game industry is that you simply never know what will happen. What games will be announced? What game will emerge as a surprise hit? What expected blockbuster will flounder? This month gave us many great games, a few duds, and a lot of surprises. From Sony's continuing PS4 domination to the shocking shutdown of Irrational Games to the amazing Titanfall beta to everything in between, this month's show has it all. So join the NOLAnerds Matt "Nathan Drake Sonic" Finneman, Chris "Can't Feed His Villagers" Robinson, Ronald "Lightning Jesus" Bienemy, and Mason "Praise Helix" Maldonado as they talk games and talk it well.
