We at the Nerd Chambers have been gaming since our first memories, and we are sure our fellow nerds out there can relate! In our hiatus Jace Rush and myself have decided to take our gaming addiction to an all time high. We are excited to delve into the depths of 2018 with an emense amount of gaming, but this year we are going to tackle it in a slightly different way. Jace Rush and I are excited to start 2018 with a lot more streaming at The Nerd Chambers after our purchases of new compooters!
We will be looking for all of the big titles throughout the year on console, but now you can follow us on our new journey into the PC world! It has been fun to do some light streaming in games like Rocket League and Call of Duty, but we have been getting extremely excited to branch out into the intense realm of PC with games like League of Legends! You can check out our rise from the bottom of Bronze V into a legendary Bronze IV! We are also wanting to take our new computers on an adventure with many more games! Feel free to comment any recommendations for us to try out on PC or even console for 2018!

Nintendo has had it’s fair share of the limelight through the first four months of the year with the official reveal of the Nintendo Switch, the launch of the Switch, and the latest installment of The Legend of Zelda being one of the greatest reviewed games of all-time. Nintendo has been enjoying a big year, and they have continued the momentum into E3 this year which is just a few weeks away. At the event, all those Switch owners eager to know what the future holds for their new console will get a chance to see some upcoming games and more during Nintendo’s E3 festivities. Nintendo laid out the major events that they will be holding on their website, which is sure to entice thousands to tune in on June 13th.
To kick off the event, Nintendo will be hosting it’s version of a press conference, Nintendo Spotlight, where they plan to show off more of Super Mario Odyssey as well as games to be announced. Following Nintendo Spotlight is Nintendo Treehouse Live, where viewers of the livestream will get insight from developers on upcoming games for both the Switch and 3DS family of systems, and to tease fans even more Nintendo states on their website they may, “share some surprises.” Two other major events set to take during their three day event is a Splatoon 2 tournament and the first ARMS tournament.
What do you guys think about Nintendo’s strong start to 2017? Do you think they will deliver on the promise that the Switch holds? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @TheNerdChambers. Also, don’t forget to like us on Facebook while you are at it!
Day two was another day of excitement. The place was jammed packed,and had a record total of people for the con. The entire day was very shoulder to shoulder, but there were so many more crazy cosplayers for Saturday. There was even a DJ booth were cosplayers gathered and danced around like crazy.
I started a little bit more of my comic book hunt Saturday, but sadly did not get very lucky in my searches. I was looking for the comic Warewolf by Night #32 (First appearance of Moon Knight) for my dad because of a bet we made years ago. The context of the bet was I bet him that the Cubs would not win a world series in the next 5 years (Bet made in 2013)… If I win he owed me Amazing Spider-Man #13 (First Appearance of Mysterio). Since he won though… I owe him Warewolf by Night #32… I wanted to make sure to find him a high enough grade book, so it was a lot of fun going on the hunt for this book. Sadly I only found copies around a 7.0, 8.0 at best… Where I’m looking for a 9.2+, so there goes about 1200$… I’m sure I will acquire this book soon enough hopefully at Wizard World in August!
All around I was shocked that there were not a lot of comic book vendors. This was probably the least I’ve seen at any con. The amounts of artists and little toys and statues at this con was overwhelming. All were incredible but I wish there were many more comic vendors! Hopefully you had a good time at C2E2 if you also had the privilege to go!
Yesterday was the first day of C2E2, and it was a blast! We got there right around the time of opening at 10am, and were there till around 5pm. The day started very well when I brought Seth to his first ever booth… He had the intensions of not spending any money, but those planes were demolished intently when he drops about 100$ at his first booth on some statues and key chains… We then went and met Jennifer Hale for an autograph, and it felt amazing to meet one of the most popular voices in video games throughout the years. It was really great to see a huge a cluster of nerds who love and share a bunch of common interested! All around day one was a huge success we will post some of the art work sometime this weekend for everyone to check out!
This weekend is one of the most exciting events for all nerds in Illinois! It’s time for C2E2! This will be my fifth year in a row attending the event, and I am even more excited then ever. Marvel will finally be making a return to the event, so it will be great to possibly see any sort of teaers for upcoming projects of Marvel (please give a little preview of Defenders!) A couple years back when Gotham wqs coming out they aited the first episode for all attendees of the event to get an opportunity to watch. After the great success of the preview Supergirl did the same thing!
Other than any movie and TV excitement I am really hoping that their is a booth where I can get my hands on Injustice 2 somewhere at the con. It was really awesome that Mortal Kombat X was playable early at C2E2 they it dropped, so let’s hope that Injustice 2 gets the same love! I am also in a big debate on what to spend my money on this year… Filling in the holes of my amazing Spider-Man collection comics… Or some incredible art pieces in artist alley..??? The dicisions are so difficult!
Make sure to keep checking in over the weekend for updated on how C2E2 is panning out for the cast at The Nerd Chambers! Also tweet us @TheNerdChambers or comment below , and let us know your best con experience!

According to NerdMuch?, after announcing a Minecraft: Education Edition, Microsoft is looking to do some more educating themselves. To go along with their new program which allows anyone to develop games for the Xbox One, Microsoft is going to be holding three 3-hour classes in collaboration with the AIE (Academy of Interactive Entertainment). The classes will be based around game design, programming, and developing, and will be taught by teachers from AIE and will be taught using the Xbox One.
The classes are going to be held at the Microsoft Store in Sydney, Australia from April 10th to the 22nd. What is most exciting about this opportunity for aspiring designers is that the classes are FREE. Now it’s simply a matter of booking a two week trip to Australia. The classes are open to people of all ages, but it is said that they would like to catch interest of the younger generation and get them involved in game design.
What do you guys think of Microsoft’s latest idea? Are they just using stuff like this to get people to make games for them because they are lacking the exclusives of other systems? Or are they actually looking enrich a broader audience into make games? Let us know what you think the comments below or tweet @TheNerdChambers.
