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

The countdown has begun! Nintendo announced that the NX is now the Switch, and gamers are in full on speculation and hot takes mode. Between the Switch, Pokemon, Red Dead Redemption 2, and PS VR, this was a crazy week for gaming.

Welcome to a special early and truncated episode of the NOLAnerdcast! No guest star. No comics news. Not even a full roster of NOLAnerds. What gives? Well, Matthew is leaving for San Diego Comic Con to take the NOLAnerdcast cross country and will be providing coverage of the event from there. So we had to record early! Which means no comics came out yet. But we do talk Ghostbusters, Pokemon GO, toxic Twitter behavior, EVO 2016, and so much more!

We also discuss the worldwide addiction that is Pokemon GO, brand new comic debuts from DC's Rebirth line, Marvel's own horribly upsetting Vision series, and more!

Due to real life (!) intruding on the podcast, we were forced to record a day earlier than normal. So no new comics this week. I mean the last time we did this, it's not like Captain America came out as a Nazi right? ...Right?.....Anyway we delve into the gaming news of the week, discuss cosplay with our favorite award winning cosplayer Remy Symons! and I guess make fun of each other? It's kind of our schtick.

So fun story: It is super easy to frustrate Matthew because he has the thinnest skin ever. Chris exploits that knowledge and makes Matt pout for what seems like 75% of the entire episode. What a baby. Get over it you big baby. Besides that, we talk Nintendo's baffling business moves for 2016, the announcement of the death of the Wii U, and...oh yeah, comics. This was one of the best weeks ever for comics. Like, ever. In the history of us reading. It was awesome. We cherry pick the best for you! AND THERE IS SO MUCH MORE!

Comics man. They are a thing that seems to happen every week. But you know what doesn't happen every week? A 50th issue of Batgirl. You know what else? An American soldier turning into Godzilla and fighting a giant Avengers robot. Turns out that doesn't happen too often.

So this week, a pretty big movie came out. You might have heard of it. Something about a dark knight versus a man of steel. But then a wondrous woman shows up. And they fight against the doom of the day. And some dude with hair is evil or something. 


But hey! Other stuff happened too! Like, DC made huge waves comics wise with their massive announcement of all of the DC Rebirth titles and creative teams. And we read some comics! Batman & Robin Eternal came to a conclusion. Saga continues to be awesome. Squirrel Girl teams up with Howard the Duck, and Chip Zdarsky sanctioned buffoonery ensues. Speaking of Chip Zdarsky buffoonery, Jughead is amazing. 


But that's not all! Josh flips out over Slain and Hyper Light Drifter, Scott continues to love wrestling fanfic, Chris ignores the rest of us for Avengers Academy, and so much more!

And we find out that there are strong opinions to be had about the Wii U's failure to make a dent in the market. There are comics too. You know, those things we also read?

And how much worse is it going to get for the kids in No Mercy? These questions and more will be answered as soon as you listen to our show!

December is upon us. Time to start looking forward to 2016 while still enjoying a great week of comics. This week brought us brand new Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman trailers as well as Netflix's new show Jessica Jones. But we are here to talk about comics, and what a great week it was! Marvel gave us FOUR brand new debuts and DC hit us with our favorite two hit combo of Midnighter and Prez. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Timely Update" Finneman and Chris "Nag Nag Nag" Robinson as they break it down with eloquence.

Matt's gone again and a major holiday is about to hit the US so I guess I'll stay and record the show about the million or so books that came out this week. No it's fine. I'm not complaining, I mean I didn't want to play Fallout 4 tonight anyway. So anyway here is the show. I'm not giving times because I'm busy doing important stuff and the show is only a half hour long so you can deal with not having the times.

September was a massive month for Sony. Between being the only console maker with a real presence at this year's Tokyo Game Show to releasing a ton of games to announcing its first price drop, to celebrating 20 years in America, this was a big month for them.

Something seems special about this week's comics show. Maybe it's because it's a fifth week? Fewer comics...more annuals... no, that doesn't sound right.

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!

Despite being down a co-host, Chris valiantly struggled on to deliver a whopper show all by himself. He did this in spite of his head cold, achy back, dry mouth, coughing, sneezing, sniffling, and all around general miserableness because at the end of the day Chris loves all of you like his children....Wait Chris hates children. Chis loves you all like his dog.

Book of the week: Archie or Civil War. I can't decide or did I already on the show Listen to find out.

This is it! The final press conference in an absolutely massive E3 2015! Like Bethesda before them, Square Enix is debuting their brand new conference to us. Did the company the RPG built make a comeback? Or did they continue their Capcom-esque slide into obscurity?

Were mobile games all they talked about? Did Kingdom Hearts 3 show up in any significant capacity? What about Final Fantasy? Did 15 show up? Or anything new? What about Eidos' input? How awesome was Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Just Cause 3? Were there any surprises? Any new IP?

Coming in strong after a solid 2014 show and generating a ton of buzz during their Nintendo World Championship and the insane debut of actual Super Mario Maker gameplay, did Nintendo continue the hype train rolling? Did Zelda make a surprise appearance? What about Star Fox, their much discusses game of this year? Did smaller games like Fatal Frame and Devil's Third get the spotlight?

Welcome to part 5 of our E3 2015 coverage! This time we tackle one of the big dogs, Sony and the Playstation 4, a system with the most to prove since it has been enjoying first place since its launch. Can Sony continue that success?

After dominating in 2013 and slipping a bit in 2014 with a snooze worthy Powers TV segment and a lackluster replacement for Jack Tretton, did Sony come back strong? Did they debut any new IPs? What about Uncharted 4? Did it continue to impress? Were the rumors true about them stealing Call of Duty from Xbox? Were there any surprises in store for us? Any megaton announcements? Why do people keep calling Sony 2015 the Wish Making Genie?

Last year Ubisoft ended with their traditional "one more thing" and gave us Rainbow Six: Siege. One year later, how is it faring? What about their delayed The Division? Is it still hype worthy? What about this year's "one more thing?" Did Aisha Tyler make an excellent host again? Did Assassin's Creed: Syndicate revive our passion for the franchise? Did Just Dance bring the show to a grinding halt again? Were there any surprises for us in store?

Last year was an all time low for EA. Nothing to show. Announcements with not even a teaser trailer. Just footage of people talking about how they want to make a game. But it is one year later. EA is armed with some of gaming's most anticipated titles. Mass Effect. Mirror's Edge: Catalyst. Star Wars: Battlefront. How did they deliver? Were there any surprises for us?

Boy it sure has been a bit hasn't it? The NOLAnerds didn't do a dedicated show for April due to the lack of big news or big releases, but there was still enough that we decided to break it down in a rapid fire fashion during our May show! But none of that matters because we are SO CLOSE TO E3 2015! This episode the NOLAnerds pare down to the basics with the OG crew taking over as they discuss everything from the Nintendo Directs to the new Star Wars game, to the latest new marketing deals, to a joy filled discussion of Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Gwent" Finneman and Chris "Actually Played Games" Robinson!

For our 4th consecutive year, the NolaNerds made their prescence known at BSI Comcss during the annual free Comic Book Day event. We sat around and chatted with local artists and writers, looked at the most recent offerings from the Big 2 and other companies and Chris interviewed a "new Matt" to replace the old one. We also talk about Avengers: Age of Ultron so spoilers I guess? Judging from the box office you've already seen it so it just doesn't even matter. Listen and enjoy!

So NolaNerdCast HQ is kind of a revolving door sometimes. Normally this is not a problem but this week someone started a conversation as soon as they walked in the door. As a result, I had to be up extra early so I could edit it out to provide a seamless audio version for our listeners. There's no real point to this, I just wanted to tell someone and I can tell that you are a good listener. The show itself? I mean we talk about Olicity (Several times), Law and Order: Marvel Style, and the wardrobe upgrade that joining the League of Assassins brings.

Today is a momentous occasion for our little TV show podcast. For the first time, every single show we cover had a new episode that aired last week. An exciting and exhausting prospect to be sure. This week we talk the neutering of the "Calvary", that corridor fight from Daredevil, and the two part Atom crossover.
