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 8/24/2014

Oh holy hell this was way more difficult than it should have been posting this. apparently Google Drive wants to make your life more difficult by making you download apps on things like computers and then having them not work correctly. So currently I’m writing this on my iPad.

Anyway… This was an interesting week for things that I like to see fail…because they keep making terrible decisions and it makes me all warm and fuzzy on the inside.  DC wants to be serious but also have superheroes punch each other in the face. Doctor Doom the sock puppet gets leaked and Nintendo laid off over 300 people and get flack for it by making extremely dumb statements years prior. All that and much more after the jump
