What happened to episode 22? That is an excellent question, and one I have no answer for. Apparently we forgot to upload it. Too bad too, it was a doozy with two dozen comics reviewed and discussed! MAYBE ONE DAY! Until then, enjoy the final week before DC throws everyone a curve ball with Convergence. In fact, this was a week full of endings and one new beginning courtesy of another quality Image debut. We say goodbye to two of our DC weeklies, the final round of DC books, but we welcome our new summer event overlord as well. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Clue Master" Finneman and Chris "Talon's Back" Robinson as they break it down for you all nice like.

To the surprise of none of us, March was once again a major powerhouse in gaming. "The Spring Holiday" I like to call it when no one is listening so they won't make fun of me. This year, March takes on a special significance since it marked the release of what many are calling the first "true next gen must have game" with the release of the PS4's Bloodborne. But this month was also chock full of gaming news from GDC 2015, the shock that Nintendo is going mobile, and the release of a ton of insanely high quality indie games. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Axiom Verge-tastic" Finneman, Chris "Next Time On" Robinson, Garrett "Salty" Platner, Mason "Revelations Master" Maldonado, Ronald "BloodBorn for This" Bienemy, Doug "Ori" Rosenthal, Andy "Last Gen Holdout" Niemann and Dolly "Half Life 3 Confirmed" Pop as they break it all down!

Despite the mascot of this episode being that terrible abomination of a Pokemon Pichu, this was a great week for comics! We got an unprecedented triple release of Image debuts, the final pre-Convergence issues of a handful of DC titles, Batman: Eternal's big bad was finally unveiled, Squirrel Girl continued to dominate our hearts, Future's End broke our hearts, and so much more went down! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Brother Eye" Finneman, Chris "Two Calls" Robinson, and Andy "Silk the Shocker" Niemann as they chitchat their way into your hearts!

The NolaNerds are here to chew bubblegum and review TV and we are all out of bubblegum. We discuss why Sif isn't on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the talkiness of Powers, and the merits of Sharlto Copley.

t's a lighter comics week finally, allowing the NOLAnerds' wallets to relax a bit. This week we bid a fond farewell to the final Charles Soule DC offering, welcome Princess Leia to the Marvel universe, and enjoy a double helping of Jeff Lemire premieres. Or Jeff "Premieres" if you will. Man I am hilarious. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Rogue Jordan" Finneman, Chris "Secret Grayson Organization" Robinson and guest starring Andy "Star Wars" Niemann as they welcome the week that was.

Well the comics show got a 2.0 revamp name, why not the gaming? This is officially episode 40, but that's all in the past! This month the NOLAnerdcast crew gathered together once more to pay tribute to the month that came before us. This month we discuss things like the Rock Paper Shotgun interview with Peter "Hype Man" Molyneux, the polarizing release of Majora's Mask 3D, the even more polarizing release of The Order: 1886, Batman going mature, the mere possibility of a Legend of Zelda Netflix show, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Sir Galahad" Finneman, Chris "Dying Dead Island Light" Robinson, Andy "Banjo Lover" Niemann, Mason "Resident Evil World Champ" Maldonado, Doug "Late to the Mordor" Rosenthal, and Dolly "Deku" Pop as they break it all down for you!

In a truly shocking turn, nobody is on assignment this week!! Which would be great if all the shows didn't decide to enter their spring break. This week we talk about Fiash Mooney, the end of Agent Carter, and the mysteries of Nanda Parbat.

This episode brought to you later than usual courtesy of the south having absolutely no idea what to do when roads ice over! Our comics arrived a day late to BSI, so we are making due with what we can! This was another big week, bringing us the long awaited debut of Spider-Gwen, Rob Guillory making a splash at Marvel, Guy Gardner fighting a baby, a belated Valentine's Day with Ms. Marvel, and much much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Rapid Fire" Finneman and Chris "Speed Demon" Robinson with guest host Andy "Hop to It" Niemann as the NOLAnerds try and race through the show!

What's that? NOLAnerds have officially entered (albeit 15 weeks late...) into the vaunted 2.0 era?!? THAT'S RIGHT! We, much like the comics we love, have decided to arbitrarily relaunch, rename, and renumber ourselves! Because why not? So welcome to 2.0 episode 16, codename Spinarak! This week we discuss the megaton of Spider-Man in the MCU, the newly announced books of DC's Divergence, welcome back the heavily delayed Secret Six, tackle the latest Black Vortex space saga entry, and more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Ghost Hater" Finneman and Chris "Pants Ripper" Robinson as they talk shop!

2015 is here! After a year that could only be described as "tumultuous," the fresh year has arrived, promising a truly epic 365 days of gaming. However, in true January fashion, not much actually happened this month. While sparse on news AND game releases, the NOLAnerds nonetheless do what they do best: arguing back and forth about things of no great importance! This show we chat about Nintendo's inane naming schemes, Microsoft's Xbox plans with Windows 10, the release of Saints Row 4's swan song, and more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Grim Fandango" Finneman, Chris "Saints Row 5ever" Robinson, Ronald "Handheld Hater" Bienemy, Mason "Tank Controls" Maldonado, Zack "Handsome Jack" St Onge, Andy "Majora's Teet Sucker" Niemann, Dolly "Epileptic Gamer" Pop, and Scott "He Was There?" Brehm as they chat you up!

The shows are BACK BABY!

 
Midseason breaks are over, and all of our shows have returned in glorious form. And we even got a new show to boot, the excellent Agent Carter, subbing in for the inconsistently enjoyable Agents of SHIELD show.
 
This week we chat about Gotham, Agent Carter, the awesomeness of Flash and Arrow, and  Constantine. It's a doozy!

Welcome to the 75th annual Hunger Games! Wait, that doesn't sound right at all. But it sounds way cooler than "Welcome to the episode of the NOLAnerdcast Comics Podcast that would be equivalent to Ledyba from Pokemon Gold/Silver. God. What a lame Pokemon. This week the NOLAnerds tackle the Multiversity Guidebook, read another Image Comics first, say farewell to Unwritten (sniff), and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Little League" Finneman, Chris "Ginger Apologist" Robinson, and Andy "Academy" Niemann as they talk about the biggest week of comics in 2015 so far.

The shows are BACK BABY!

 
Midseason breaks are over, and all of our shows have returned in glorious form. And we even got a new show to boot, the excellent Agent Carter, subbing in for the inconsistently enjoyable Agents of SHIELD show.
 
This week we chat about TWO episodes of Gotham, THREE episodes of Agent Carter, the return of Flash and Arrow, and TWO episodes of Constantine. It's a doozy!
 
Arkham Origins (Gotham)
 
Agents Assemble (Agent Carter)

Pay no attention to the fact that this episode came out well after 2014. We had to make room for our epic live streamed Twitch Game of the Year show! (Check it out on Youtube!)

We chat Geoff Keighley's Game Awards show, the 20th Anniversary Playstation Experience conference, Bienemy's love affair with Guilty Gear Xrd, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Drake Lover" Finneman, Chris "Arkham Knight" Robinson, Ronald "Ky Kiske" Bienemy, Andy "New Order" Niemann, and introducing Dolly "Majora's Mask" Pop as they break down the month for you!

The NOLAnerds are here with the third installment of their weekly comic book based TV recap show! Do we utilize our comics show theme of naming episodes after Pokemon? Because if we do this is totally episode Venusaur. But who knows. We will figure that out later. This is a shorter show since 2 of the 5 shows this week didn't air a new episode. Our itinerary included: 

 
Arkham Origins (Gotham Watch)
 
Under the Hood (Arrow Watch)
 
Raising Hellblazer (Constantine Watch)

The NOLAnerds are back with another look at a month in the world of gaming. This was both a great month for game releases, and a sad month for the gaming industry. We were blessed with great game releases, but also plagued by the seemingly never ending world of GamerGate.  This month the nerds discuss that ongoing clusterfuck, chat about the info bomb that was Super Smash Bros Wii U, chat about the latest NPD sales figures and what that means for the holidays, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Sunset Overjoyed" Finneman, Chris "Korra-licious" Robinson, Garrett "Trifecta" Platner, Zack "Mordor Salesman" St. Onge, Mason "Revelations 2" Maldonado, Ronald "Late to the Party" Bienemy, and Tim "Pokemaniac" Moseley as the talk about games and games and games!

So join NOLAnerds Matt "Old Finn" Finneman and Chris "Loves Mega Man" Robinson as they do what they do best. Or at least what they do adequately.

So join NOLAnerds Matt "White Lantern" Finneman, Chris "Lamb of God" Robinson, and Andy "Sleepy Hollow" Niemann as they discuss the week for your pleasure!

With our 150th episode behind us, the NOLAnerds continue their never ending trudge towards the next great podcast milestone. And they do it in style this week, with several new debuts and crossovers and weeklies to discuss. We have also entered the full swing of TV season, with FOUR superhero shows to discuss. This week we hit up everything from new hipster Batgirl to the scary world of Scott Snyder's Wytches, to the classic Batman vs Justice League story, to a very magic and witch heavy week, to everything in between. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Justice Buster" Finneman and Chris "Cthullu's Bride" Robinson as they talk comics!

September is upon us! The summer drought has ended! Let the deluge of games BEGIN! This month brought us everything from the Tokyo Game Show to the release of the best selling new IP of all time, the highly anticipated Destiny and so much more! The NOLAnerds discuss the latest Naruto release, talk about the poor sales for great games on systems with small install bases, give their own opinions on the Destiny phenomenon, anticipate the new Shadows of Mordor game, and scratch their heads at the odd PS3 JRPG rush. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Sunsinger" Finneman, Chris "Naruto Eye Roll" Robinson, Ronald "Xillia" Bienemy, Mason "Needs A Vita" Maldonado, Zack "Shadows of Mordor Believer" St. Onge, and Andy "Smash Bro" Niemann as they talk shop!

We code named this episode Durango. It has nothing to do with the XBox One. Or the car. Or anything else named Durango. Name just sounds fun. This was a special week. Chris actually had more books than Matt! That never happens. This week the NOLAnerds tackled more five years later DC books, ventured once more into Multiversity, got a double dose of X-Men, welcomed back Deadly Class, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Purple Reign" Finneman and Chris "Shuttered" Robinson as they talk comics.

Welcome to Episode 146, code named Cthullu. Why? Who even knows. Probably because 146 is a weird number for a title. But that has nothing to do with comics! This week the NOLAnerds dive head first into the opening week of DC's Future's End one shot initiative, where every issue is time skipped 5 years later and may or may not tie into the weekly ongoing, Future's End. We also are 'treated' to the finale of Original Sin, find out Prof X's actual original sin, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Penny-One" Finneman and Chris "Human Bed" Robinson as they tackle the week in comics!

Wow. WOW guys. This month right here. Between the crazy highs of Gamescom 2014 and the Playstation Tokyo Game Show pre-show to the insane lows of the gaming community completely mishandling at best and being virulent and awful at the worst in regards to Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian, this has been one stacked month of gaming news. Gamer as a term became practically detrimental to our preferred hobby, Playstation knocked it out of the park at Gamescom, a handful of releases graced consoles as the world prepared itself for the onslaught of the holidays, and so much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "That's So Fetch" Finneman, Chris "Saints Row 5ever" Robinson, Garrett "Sword Art Translation Error" Platner, Mason "Monokuma" Maldonado, and Zack "Tomb Raider Holiday" St. Onge as they try and tackle this massive news filled month in style!

It's a fifth week of comics folks and we all know what that means! Annuals! And less books than usual. Which suits us and our wallets just fine here at NOLAnerd HQ considering how much I spent at San Diego last week... ouch. This week we tackle some DC annuals and weeklies, say hello to a couple series we haven't seen in a few months, talk about Chris' love for the Doom Patrol, and much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Wonder Woman Team Up" Finneman and Chris "Nail Biter" Robinson as they chat with the interwebs about comics!

This episode is brought to you 7 days late because Matt was in San Diego for Comic Con International like a true comics nerd. Sadly that meant he didn't get to read this weeks' comics until now. But the week had SO MANY great books that a show had to be done to give them the justice they deserve. This week the NOLAnerds discuss several great Batman books, the best issue of Unwritten: Apocalypse to date, read a few Original Sin tie ins, gush over Image comics, and essentially have the most high rated books (4.0s) in one single episode ever. So join NOLAnerds Matt "San Diego Bound" Finneman and Chris "Lame Ass Who Didn't Go to San Diego" Robinson as they play catch up on the weeks' quality.

Comics! Man, do you know how hard it is to constantly think of something to put here? I mean, this is comics episode 137. That's like 130 more than I could reasonably do in a witty manner. So hey, let's just talk facts. Comics came out this week. Stuff like Lazarus. And more DC weeklies. Rocket Raccoon debuted. Other stuff happened! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Forever" Finneman and Chris "JokerXSuperman" Robinson as they talk about stuff. And junk.

What about the new Zelda? Did Metroid show up? What about Star Fox? How were games like Yarn Yoshi and Hyrule Warriors looking? Where there any true surprises at all?

Did Destiny make a comeback appearance? Were there any surprise game reveals? What about indie support? Did Sony tackle the PS3 or Vita in a significant way? How about their Playstation NOW initiative or their Project Morpheus CR headset? Which third party games showed up to lend their support? How jaw droppingly gorgeous did Uncharted 4 look?

Thank you for joining us in part 3 of our 5 part series detailing the five major press conferences of E3 2014. Next up we discuss how Ubisoft fared with their press conference.

 
Coming off of a great 2013 and delivering us Child of Light a few months ago and Watch Dogs mere weeks ago, Ubisoft is in a prime position to once again dominate the talk of E3. 
 
Will they end the show on another show stopper announcement? Will Aisha Tyler kill it for the 3rd year in a row of being a great host? How is The Division looking one year later? What is the latest Assassin's Creed looking like? Any crazy new game reveals that will appeal to everyone? What about the recently revealed Far Cry 4? 
 
Answers to all of these and more are conveniently located in this very podcast! So let the NOLAnerds break it all down for you because they are just nice like that

How did the big MS fare about last year's bad policy tainted PR nightmare? Has Phil Spencer lived up to his promise of being the anti Don Mattrick? 
 
Did the January mega leak prove to be true? What were the surprise exclusives? Which third party studios showed up? Has Microsoft successfully courted the indies to counter Sony's indie heavy initiative?
 
All of these questions and more are answered in our NOLAnerd breakdown of the 2014 XBox Press Conference!

This week was a refreshing breather from the past few weeks worth of comics. In an odd twist, Marvel had a very strong showing book quantity wise for us this week, and there was nary a Vertigo or an Image book to be found! This week we discussed the difficulty of directing Ant-Man, celebrate the return of a book that has been missing from our lives, get shocked by Original Sin, try our damnedest to get Chris to say "The Others" and much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Angry Iron Fist" Finneman and Chris "Loves The Others" Robinson and kinda sorta featuring the return of Ashley "Where Am I?" Rose Butler as they talk and junk.

For the record, NOLAnerd Chris has the worst ideas for these little blurbs. He wanted to start it off with #Butts. I mean, come on. At least make it #Buttz. With a Z. Makes it seem edgier.

Banner week in comics folks! Despite a select few books (1 from each of the Big 2) not panning out, there was a lot to love this week. The debut of a new DC title! The return of Peter Parker! M. Marvel being delightful! The Metal Men being relevant! Mega Man hitting you in the feels! And more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Desensitized to Bachalo" Finneman and Chris "#H2ooooooh!" Robinson as they break it down like only they can! Poorly. Very poorly.

VIDJA GAMES! Things happened this month, as they always do in March, or as we like to call it, Second Christmas. Seriously. It seems like every major game that slipped from November ends up in March. This month gave us the first two exclusive heavy hitters for the next gen consoles, a Facebook buyout that shocked the internet, more PS4 sales dominance, new game announcements, the greatest licensed game to ever release, and much more! So join NOLAnerds Matt "Neon-ophile" Finneman, Chris "Big Boss" Robinson, Garrett "Dark Souls Master Race" Platner, Zack "Devil's Advocate" St. Onge, and introducing Tim "South Park Fan" Moseley as they break down the month in style.

Our wallets breathed a sigh of relief this week as the comic Gods deemed us worthy of having a smaller load of books to buy. It has its pros and cons, as all things do. Plus side? Smaller budget needed. Down side? This week was merely a week of average books with few standouts. This week we say goodbye to Trillium, welcome The Others into the DC family, and ponder how essential Domino is for Chris to read Punisher. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Flabbergasted" Finneman and Chris "The Others Lover" Robinson as they talk shop.

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.

Welcome to the latest episode of the NOLAnerdcast, world renowned (in our own minds) as the best unprofessionally professional comics podcast around! This week the NOLAnerds tackle the subject of Guardians of the Galaxy, welcome back the Metal Men, say goodbye to a run of Daredevil, and hit a milestone of the feels with Adventure Time. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Loves Dinosaur Hat Puns" Finneman and Chris "Fuck Off Eyebrows" Robinson as they talk comics and hate on each others' opinions.

All of that plus new installments of Arrow and Shield Watch as well as tons of comic reviews makes this one jam packed episode!

New year of video games folks! And with that new year comes a glut of new info and a dearth of new games. This month was ruled by Kickstarter, with several of the biggest releases being born from the community driven site last year or the year before. This month also brought us HUGE Playstation news from CES, a wealth of leaked info about Microsoft, numerous negative reports about Nintendo's financial future, as well as the reveal of the first wave of PC Steam Machines. So join NOLAnerds Matt "PS NOW" Finneman, Chris "Kingdom Hearts is the Devil" Robinson, Ronald "Lightning Lover" Bienemy, Mason "Understands the Kingdom Hearts Timeline" Maldonado, and Zack "Frames per Second Devil's Advocate" St. Onge as they discuss ALL THE THINGS!

SNOWPACALYPSE NOW! I am shocked we are even able to get this show out to you folks, as we have barely survived the blistering 30 degree cold and light icing of the roads here in New Orleans. We even had to TURN ON OUR HEATER! But we here at the NOLAnerdcast trudge on to give you our insights into comics. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Team Gardner" Finneman and Chris "Gardner's 'Stache" Robinson as they talk comics and try to retain their warmth.

Welcome to another installment of the NOLAnerdcast Comic Book Podcast everyone! This is the week I realized how much I enjoy doing this every week, as I dragged myself out from death's door to buy comics and record this show. Hopefully you can't tell! This week ended up being rather brief, with no episode of Agents of SHIELD and a quick and breezy selection of comics to discuss. So join NOLAnerds Matt "Dot Now Dot INH" Finneman and Chris "Storm's A Tramp" Robinson as they talk comics all day every day.
