Check out the All-New ANTiFanboy Podcast
Back in 2006, a group of wide-eyed comic book geeks started a podcast with gear they were renting out from college. The podcast originally had a single-focus of comic book reviews but as the show grew in popular, it expanded into a podcast about games, movies, and everything else nerd-related.

Things That Happened The Week Of

Hi and welcome to this jam packed edition of Things That Happened The Week Of AKA the one where Nintendo Switch announced all of its stuff and the internet freaked out.

Nintendo held a press conference this week where we learned about everything we wanted (and things we wish we didn’t) about the Nintendo Switch. Steve and I gave our own ‘Quick & Dirty’ predictions and post show thoughts and we will go into further detail on the main podcast. Also ANTiFanboy Singles are back! I break down what Sony, Microsoft (pre Scalebound cancellation) and Nintendo (Pre-Switch announcement) are going to offer us in 2017.

We have great new trailers (XX), casting news (Avengers: Infinity War) and more Marvel events than you can shake a stick at. All that and more found below!
