Check out the All-New ANTiFanboy Podcast
Back in 2006, a group of angry young comic book nerds started a podcast with the focus of highlighting which comics that released that week were the must-read books but as the show grew in popular, it expanded into a show about video games, movies, television, comics, and everything else in between. Just remember one thing: We don't talk. We argue!

Things That Happened The Week Of 08/23/2015

A surprisingly fun week of news for the last full week of August. I feel like, as a person who wasn’t able to make it to D23, that I got more news this week than I did when an official Disney event happened. We got team rosters! We got hyped, we picked sides. All this is infinitely better than reading trailer descriptions.

Until Dawn has come out this week and as you can see on our Lingering Scare, its a charming scary little game that has a lot more going on than most would think. A Shovel Knight Amiibo is coming out and will just bum you out if you think figure based DLC is kind of lame. Street Fighter gets a new character and DC is $2 million behind where they should be.

All nice and juicy bits of news this week and much more down below.
