Overwatch Teaser???

Today on the Australian and New Zealand Blizzard Twitter posted a short video that teases some upcoming Overwatch details! We already got Orisa early this competitive season, so what else could they be bringing to us? The only real information we got from the teaser is April 12 is when we will know what is happening. Are we getting a new map? Why was Kings Row the focal point of the video? Possibly a new event? Are we getting a new character? What do you think is happening April 12th!? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @TheNerdChambers.

Destiny 2 Rally the Troops!!!

The trailer has finally hit the public, and it has made a boom! In less than an hour the trailer had already totaled over 138K views, and is sitting at a solid 16K likes. Not only did the trailer bring some excitement for combat and adventure… It also brought a sense of humor. The trailer has two characters explaining why we need to join together and help the cause for Destiny 2.

One commander takes a very serious approach explaining the sad defeated warriors, and why they need to take back their home. The commander does a very good job at getting the troops excited for the vengeful crusade. So they are ready to take on the Red Legion and take on Ghaul…

On the other hand… We see the same fun loving drunken guardian from the teaser trailer Cayde giving a not as heroic speech. He goes on to explain that we need everyone, but you might die in the adventure. He then can’t remember the name of the evil villain’s name… “Starts with a g? Gary?! No…” No one seems to be buying his speech, and he changes the reasoning to loot. That everyone should get all the loot they possibly can, and this hypes up the guardians!

Bungie did a very good job in the trailer explaining why you’ll be starting over in the sequel. The fact that Ghaul and his legion came through and destroyed the tower with all of your loot inside. You’ll have to begin a new story in a new part of the world. Hopefully Destiny 2 will have more sustained success then it’s first game had. All together the first game did well it just didn’t hold all of its gamers from the start.

Watch the Destiny 2 Trailer here!

What do you think about the trailer for Destiny 2? Will you be jumping on board and rallying with the troops on September 8th? Let us know on Twitter @TheNerdChambers or in the comments below!

Destiny 2 Teaser!!!

One of the most anticipated games in the last decade was Bungie’s newest creation Destiny. After a plethora of Halo games that the company gifted to us over the years. The games did very well, and it was very sad to see Bungie depart from their extremely acclaimed franchise that is Halo… After a few years we were delighted to find out about Destiny! The hype for this game was absolutely surreal. We were graced with a beta that had an undying amount of fun, and when the game launched the world exploded. All around the first few months of the game did very well, and honestly to this day the game still is doing very well with a die hard fan base.

There has been some rumors surrounding the upcoming sequel such as release date, upcoming events, and what will be new to the game… Well today we finally got to have a small glimpse into the world of Destiny 2. The trailer showed us some very incredible action sequence with our narrator bringing us deep into flashbacks of war. The trailer did not give us a look into the upcoming game other than the fact we will be getting a full trailer on March 30th. The trailer does give us some hype for the upcoming game.

What do you think of the Destiny franchise? Are you excited for the upcoming game this year? Let us know @TheNerdChambers what you think about Destiny and Destiny 2! Come back Friday to check out our thoughts on the full trailer!

Call of Duty WWII???

Every year a new game to the Call of Duty franchises drops. Some years it’s a hit and others it’s a very sad miss. Over the last few years the Call of Duty games have seen some struggle in pre sales, overall purchases, and players sticking with their product. Ever since Call of Duty has made the shift to next-gen, the franchise has began to take a dive. Some people were recently happy with the 2015 Call of Duty Black Ops 3 that was released. Due to the games much slower game page then Advanced Warfare and great Call of Duty Zombies story arcs, the game showed some promise. 

This last year the companies tried something new by releasing a new title (Infinite Warfare) and a remake of a fan favorite (Modern Warfare). This did show to help the company with the remake, but at this point most users are only on the remake. With all of the jet packs in the currents CODs the popularity of the games has shifted. So it is sad to know the games the company works to put out people don’t care for anymore. 

There is a saving grace… Possibly. It has been announced that we may be getting a World War 2 based Call of Duty. Which we would guess this means boots on the ground. No jump packs or anything in that mobility. This most likely will help the franchise quite a bit. We will have to see when the game drops later this year.

What do you think about Call of Duty 2017? Does this mean anything to you, or is Call of Duty dead? Let us know @TheNerdChambers on Twitter!

Orisa’s Big Debut…

All of us Overwatch sweaties have bee overly excited for today… Why might you ask? We are finally getting our hands on the new Overwatch hero Orisa! It will bring a fresh breathe to the Overwatch competitive seen.She will bring some much need variety to the tank classing since this is the smallest pool of characters in Overwatch. 

One of the biggest questions we have at The Nerd Chambers is, How will this change the meta? There has been a lot of talk on a so called “barrier meta” to hit the game. With characters like Reinhardt and Winston with their own annoying damage stopping barriers will we see the likes of a 3 team barrier squad. Not only how will this effect the tank picks, but you have to think this will also change up the damage composition. 

It really makes you think… Will teams play with flanking characters to just avoid and get past the barriers quicker, or will their be just heavy hitting teams with the highest possible damage? You may either see tracers and genjis be wiped from the competitive existence if there truly is a barrier meta on its way, or you may see only flankers in the DPS slots. What will happen to characters like Soldier and Hanzo? Will Junkrat make a return to play more often? Will teams pair DPS groups with Bastion, Junkrat, Pharah to just explode the barriers down as fast as possible? It’s all very exciting, and thankfully we only have to wait a few more hours to let the fun begin. 

How are you and your team going to tackle the possible barrier meta? Will you be apart of this meta and play trike tank barrier squad? Let us know on Twitter @TheNerdChambers!

Orisa is coming!!!

We are less then a week away from the new Overwatch tank to hit the competitive season with! It will be nice to have an addition to the roster to add a little more diversity to the tank selection. People have been fearing a new tank like this though… They feel that Overwatch is going to become Barrierwatch. People in the PTR were running groups with Reinhardt, Winston, and Orisa… With a Bastion. Yeah, we see how that will be a headache too. 

It is going to be very interesting how Orisa will fit the meta. Will this bring in a new wave of 3 rank groups with the barrier squad? It’s hard to imagine playing choke hold maps with Reinhardt, Mei, Orisa, and a Bastion also. You will never be able to push through the hold. We will probably see more flying/flanking characters be played more now. 

Go let us know what you think about the new tank Orisa @TheNerdChambers on Twitter. Will you be playing Orisa when she drops? Is this going to possibly ruin your current character pick with another barrier? Let us know on Twitter or down in the comments!
