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 8/10/2014

What a week… This week started on a pretty severe low for me and the world on a personal basis with the passing of Robin Williams among other terrible and unfortunate moments that happened in this country but then slowly but surely we came on the upswing and while not fully recovered we can safely say that not all is lost.

Gamescom happened this week and man! What a quirky and charming event this has become over the past few years. This is like the Cannes Film for video games it seems. There’s still your AAA popcorn fests but some really cool stuff got announced or shown that I honestly do not think would have flown at E3. Konami’s P.T. AKA (REDACTED) was probably my most enjoyable gaming experience I had this entire summer(maybe the year?). We got some neat film announcements, Aquaman gets like 10 screenplays written and Mircrosoft starts gearing up for the console war. All that and more after the jump!
