The Nola Nerds are still rocking the original trio for their 43rd comics outing, with a special guest appearance by old school fan Britain Valenti! This week the Nerds break down several great email questions, the final Before Watchmen #1, dip their toes into the world of Mind Mgmt, give way too much love to Justice League Dark, and generally do things in their trademark unprofessional manner that we have all come to know and love. The Nola Nerds this week include Matt "Get Off Your iPad, We Are Doing a Show" Finneman, Chris "Cargo of Doom" Robinson, and Scott "Horribly Offensive Towards Mexicans" Brehm.

Welcome back to another exciting and action packed and fun filled and other words episode of the Nola Nerd Podcast Video Game show! This month we take a look back at the month that was July of 2012. Ah, July. Traditionally one of the slowest and weakest months of video game sales, in recent years the realm of downloadable games has surfaced to claim July as their rightful place. XBox Live Summer of Arcade begins, and the tail end of the month saw the first outing of Playstations Month of Play. We also were graced with the wallet draining Steam Summer Sale. While the releases were few and far between, there were still a few nuggets of post E3 gaming news to be had as well as a few quality games worth spending time and money on. So dive in, and listen to the Nola Nerds break it all down for you. Joining them this time are Matt "Picross Champ" Finneman, Chris "DayZ" Robinson, Scott "Caught The Show Bug" Brehm, Ronald "Angry Black Gamer" Bienemy, and Andy "Playstation Plus" Niemann.

COMICS! How is that for an attention grabber? It's succinct, simple, informative, and it's clearly important because it was in all caps. Comics is what we are up to today on the newest episode of the Comics Podcast for the ol' Nola Nerds. After a tame 5th Wednesday last month we return in grand fashion with a large week of quality books including the much hyped (both good and bad kinds) premiere issue of Before Watchmen as well as the end of Act 1 for Avengers Vs X-Men. This time the Nola Nerds consist of Matt "Stands Alone with Action Comics" Finneman, Chris "Screw Pax, We Get Spoilers!" Robinson, Scott "I Only Read Three Books So I am Useless" Brehm, Barbie "Yeah, Screw Pax He Isn't Even Real America" Cure, and Andy "Forever New Scott" Niemann.

Did you know they released a second Digimon Movie? We sure as hell didn't! So imagine our surprise when one started playing after the second season of the show ended on our awesome DVDs. Now imagine our disappointment when we realized it wasn't even a full length movie, but merely an extended episode. Now, imagine your disappointment and apathy when you listen along with us as we discuss and berate the movie for even existing.

Welcome to the April 2012 Video Game Podcast by the Nola Nerds! TAKE TWO! Because Chris is a big ol' jerk face who deleted our first one back when, you know, it was actually the end of April and not smack dab in the middle of May. But here we are! Back! And neither better nor worse than before. This month we talk about the big games (of which there were few) and the big news (of which there were a good amount) in the video game world for the month of April. We also discuss and break down the shockingly fun yet rip-offy sounding Playstation Smash, I mean, All Stars Battle Royale. Who do we want to see appear? Who is in our dream roster? Check it out and find out!

Items of note discussed within: Witcher 2, Walking Dead Ep 1, Fez, Tales of Graces, Microsoft's $99 Xbox 360, Call of Duty Black Ops II vs. Halo 4 (The November FPS THROW DOWN!), Prototype 2, Kinect Star Wars, and Playstation All Stars Battle Royale.

The Nerds on deck this go round? Matt "I Love Sony Smash Bros" Finneman, Chris "I Want Resistance McResistancy in the Game" Robinson, Garrett "All I Play is Disgaea" Platner, Ronald "Still the Angry Black Gamer, But Now a Hardcore Tales Player" Bienemy, and Mason "I Love Sora and Leon Kennedy" Maldonado.

Comments[0] know how we are lile, totally professional and stuff? Not this time! Well I mean, we weren't any more or less professional while we recorded the new episode. I meant more as I type up this description. I've been drinking. I know, I know. We will all find the strength to carry on. MOVING ON! We have some great emails this week and the Nola Nerds really go in depth for them. We also talk about the next wave of crossover books - both for DC's Night of the Owls and Marvel's Avengers vs. X-Men. All of this and more with a healthy dose of snark and irreverance. Join Matt "My Favorite Doctor is Doctor Light" Finneman, Chris "Deleted our Last Podcast Cause He is a Big Ol Bully" Robinson, Barbie "Fastest Comic Review Record Holder" Cure, and Andy "New Scott" Niemann as they break down this new week in comics!

Using our entirely imagined celebrity status, the Nola Nerds found themselves in a position of power at the Free Comic Book Day festivities at their local comic shop, BSI Comics in Metairie, Louisiana. And by position of power, I of course mean the least professional podcast recording live on the floor as a sea of humanity swept in to snag awesome free books. Join Matt and Chris as they discuss some books given out that day, interview local artists and writers, and snag some face time with several surprise guests! It was a day of fun, so we invite you to join in with us and experience the magic. The terribly edited magic.

The Nola Nerds are at it again folks! Bringing along with them a gaggle of guest stars, Matt and Chris work hard to break down the month of March in video games for your, pleasure! Everything from the Kickstarter craze to the supposed leaked specs of the Playstation "Orbis" and the XBox "Durango" to discussions on the biggest games of March like Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Street Fighter x Tekken to downloadable gem Journey to the shockingly great Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations. All the games and news, big and small get broken down by our crack panel of experts. Experts like Matt "I Platinumed Naruto" Finneman, Chris "Addicted like a Crackwhore to MLB The Show" Robinson, Ronald "I Hate that the Wii gets all the Good JRPGS" Bienemy, Mason "Still Essentially Useless" Maldonado, Josh "Left Us Halfway" Bowman, and introducing Andy "Smoker's Lung" Dileon. 

At roughly the 40 - 45 min mark we shift focus from gaming news to games themselves.

And at 1h44m, we hate hardcore on Ethan for missing out on the recording.
