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

This was an oddly nostalgic week of comics for the NOLAnerds. It felt like it did back when we first began. A pull list chock full of DC comics with a handful of Marvel offerings. Not a single Image book or indie book in sight. It was a bit odd to tell the truth. But what a quality week it was! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Hank Johnson" Finneman and Chris "President Smiley" Robinson as they break it all down for you.

E3 has come and gone. Gamescom is weeks away. We are knee deep in the gaming drought of summer 2015. The only major release of note this summer has been Batman: Arkham Knight, but the majority of quality games this summer have arrived on the digital front. Games like Vanishing of Ethan Carter, King's Quest, Tembo the Badass Elephant, the Fall, and many more. We also got inundated with Dragon Quest news, sad farewell to an industry legend, and recoiled in horror at the evil empire named Konami. So join NOLAnerdcast members Matt "Dragon Quest OG" Finneman and Chris "King Graham" Robinson as they chat it up!
