Nintendo Shares E3 Plans

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!

C2E2 Hype!!!

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!

Borderlands 3 News…

Earlier in the week we covered Borderlands 3 and the Gear Box panel at PAX EAST. We were expecting to see some news the weekend of PAX, but we were graced with an early look of the Borderlands 3 tech demo! 

The tech demo showed some of what’s to come on the unreal engine 4. It shows how in depth they can work in their art style with heavy borders and outlines. The tech demo brings us some much needed visuals of our wonderful world of Pandora… Oh wait, something else was announced recently. As Dorothy might say, “We aren’t in Pandora anymore friends of the Nerdum.” (Click the text below to watch the Borderlands 3 Tech Demo)

Borderlands 3 Tech Demo

Where are we you might ask? Well thanks to Battleborn DLC that was just released we found out we are going to be  venturing in Promethea. Thanks to an article by Preston Lewis Jr from Twinfinite we have a little more information about the hidden easter egg,

“The first interesting piece of information in this coded message is the mention of a planet called Prometea. In the Borderlands universe, there is no planet by that name but there is a planet called Promethea which is likely where players will be heading in Borderlands 3. Promethea is where the weapons manufacturing company Atlas discovered alien technology which it then used to improve their own weapons and vehicles.”

Thanks to the developers showing us a little sneak peak of the Borderlands 3 world on Unreal Engine 4, and the BattleBorn Dlc we can begin to connect the dots of Borderlands 3! Make sure to check in during PAX EAST weekend at The Nerd Chambers to find out all about Borderlands 3! Tweet us @TheNerdChambers and tell us what you think about the news on Borderlands 3!

Star Wars Celebration!

On of the most exciting events in April is the ever so exciting Star Wars Celebration thanks to Lucas Films and Electronic Arts! This year I’m sure everyone is awaiting a trailer for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi to possibly drop and fulfill all of our nerdy needs, but… Not only are we excited for the movie news there is also some rumored news about other upcoming projects like our passion at The Nerd Chambers video games! As we all may have heard there is an upcoming Star Wars battlefront game thanks to the ever so dominating companies DICE and Motive Studios are combining their excellent creativity to bring us Star Wars Battlefront 2.

As stated before we are excited to see how Battlefront 2 will come out since the most recent Battlefront was slightly underwhelming, but it still brought joy to the lovers of Star Wars. If you aren’t hopping aboard the hype train for Battlefront 2 maybe you can be excited for 1 of the other 2??? Star Wars projects! Oh yes I did… I said 2 other upcoming games! As stated by talented writer  Eddie Makuch in his article “Dead Space Dev’s Star Wars Game Is Not “Star Wars Uncharted,” Coming in 2018″

Uncharted veteran Amy Hennig is heading up development on the new Star Wars game that is currently in production at Dead Space and Battlefield Hardline studio Visceral Games. In a new interview with Glixel, Hennig stressed that the game will not be “Star Wars Uncharted.” The report says the game may be “spiritually similar” to Uncharted, but it will also be its own thing.” (Click the above text to visit Eddie Makuch’s article at GameSpot.com!)
This definitely brings a very interesting spin on the Star Wars gaming world! Other than this Uncharted inspired Star Wars game we are also going to see a third person style action game set in the vast Star Wars universe. Thanks to the innovating game studio Respawn who brought us Titanfall we will have another way to invest our life into the amazing Star Wars universe that we all know and love!

What are your thoughts on the fascinating news about the upcoming Star Wars celebration in April!? Let us know @TheNerdChambers on Twitter! Also don’t forget to like our Facebook page The Nerd Chambers!

My first Overwatch Season…

So after the last 2 months of grinding Overwatch, I have realized I have made a huge mistake… Why did I not buy this game at launch!? I got this game as a gift for Christmas after many of my friends begged me to buy it for the last year. A lot of my friends scared me into thinking this game was more of a MOBA , as they explained it to be a 3 lane style game, with “Champions” , and no real level system… Which scared me away from an earlier purchase. Biggest gaming mistake I’ve made so far is not buying this game on release…

The last 2 months of gaming has been the most refreshing time I’ve had since Modern Warfare 2. I have been in a rut of games ever since Infinite Warfare dropped in late 2016. It didn’t grab me as well as Black Ops 3, so I really needed a new game to grasp me into hours and hours of gaming. Well thank you overwatch 90 hours in 2 months I am satisfied.

As for my rank. I made it to diamond before the season’s end. Super happy with my rank since I placed around 2450 (High Gold), and finished in low Diamond 3033. Thanks to many of hours of researching characters to play, and how to master certain heroes. I found my love… Mei❄. She was one of the heroes I put a lot of time into accumulating 22 hours with the goddess of Ice. I also worked a lot with Roadhog, Lucio, Genji, and at the end of the season Zenyatta. It was a blast the whole season. I ended the season in low Diamond at 3033, so shooting for the stars to reach into Master rank next season!

Next season will be upon us Tuesday the 28th of February. Up untill then I will be spending my time trying to master Zarya, Mcree, and give me a character to work on! Tweet us @TheNerdChambers and tell me which character I should try and master next!
