Gearbox Broke Our Heart…

Today was a very sad day for gamers everywhere… As we brought up in a previous article Borderlands 3 News?! we were very excited for PAX East this weekend becsuse there was a GearBox panel at PAX that had a description of:

Inside Gearbox Panel:

This is your opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at Gearbox Software and Gearbox Publishing, along with the latest news and updates from the makers of Borderlands, Battleborn, Brothers in Arms, and more! We will have never-before-seen reveals, exclusives, and surprises, so don’t miss out!

They teased us with the likes of Borderlands in the description of the panel. So we were all very disappointed when we found out that there was no Borderlands 3 news to be seen at PAX EAST this year… We can hope that we will finally get some sort of insight at E3 this year, and will be blown away from the built up excitement. For now all we got was need that Gearbox will be doing a Penn and Teller VR game and no Borderlands. 

Go tweet us @TheNerdChambers and let us know what you think of the absent news of Borderlands 3!

New X-Men TV Series…

There has been a lot of excitement the last couple of weeks with the X-Men franchise/Fox. Logan came out last week and swept the box office with 85.3 million opening weekend. On top of that, the new X-Men based TV show Legion has been doing very well on FX. Finally we had some insight of Deadpool 2 from a teaser that was shown before Logan, and the exciting of news that Zazie Beetz will be playing Domino!

After all this exciting news we have received, there is another update from Fox. There is another television series that will be starting up some time in the future called Gifted. Alex Gilyadov from IGN reported that…

It also seems The Originals and The Vampire Diaries star Joseph Morgan has been cast in Gifted.

Gifted’s cast includes Jamie Chung (Once Upon A Time) as the mutant Blink; Blair Redford (Switched at Birth, Satisfaction) as the mutant Thunderbird; Stephen Moyer (True Blood) as an attorney named Reed; Amy Acker (Person of Interest) as Reed’s estranged wife, Caitlin; Natalie Alyn Lind (Gotham) as one of their mutant children, Lauren; Percy Hynes White (Defiance) as Andy; Coby Bell (Burn Notice) as Jace; and Emma Dumont (Pretty Little Liars) as Polaris.”
Thanks to Alex Gilyadov we have a little more ideas of what is to come with the upcoming show Gifted. What do you think about a new X-Men TV show? Tweet us @TheNerdChambers and let us know what you think!

The Developers Heard Our Cries…

There are many upcoming changes to Overwatch that have been hitting season 4. Some of the changes have been the new character Orisa and others like balancing changes. The biggest balance we’ve seen so far this season was the change for Bastion. He was equipped with a better healing ability that allows him to move while helping, and a better weapon spread. So far nothing crazy has changed for any of heroes to render them useless… Untill recently brought up in our previous article No Not My Ana!!!

 Fans of Overwatch have been dreading the changes that were coming to one of the fan favorite support characters Ana. The changes that were coming were as follows:

Biotic Rifle

  • Damage decreased from 80 to 60

Biotic Grenade

  • Impact damage reduced from 60 to 30
  • Impact healing reduced from 100 to 50

Thankfully after time in the PTR and a lot of community outrage . The develops are going to listen to the backlash of the massive nerf of this support character. As shown above from the previous stated changes to Ana. They are going to be removing the Biotic Grenade changes, and only bringing her damage down slightly. I believe this is very fair for the fact the grenade seemed more as a support (buff/debuff) ability. While the Biotic Rifle damage is a DPS trait. It was unfair to see Ana killing characters as well if not better then not DPS classes, while being able to buff and debuff the battle field. Hopefully these changes for Ana will bring light to the character, and not kick her from the meta.

I just got back from seeing Logan. I must say excellent I had a fantastic time, but this is not why you are… There has been some Deadpool 2 items that have been dropping here and there the last week now, and I saw a tweet from Ryan Reynolds when I got back from the show.

We all have been excited for the upcoming film in 2018 that is Deadpool 2. There has been a lot of speculation who will be joining Ryan Reynolds for the cast of the Fox film. Who will play Cable? Who will be the villain? Well today we got some insight from Ryan Reynolds that Zazie Beetz will be joining Deadpool as Domino! Hopefully we will get some sort of insight on who will be playing Cable… The current rumor is that David Harbour from Stranger Things will be the time traveling side kick!

Star Wars Episode VIII First Showing…

Today was a very lucky day for the shaeholders at Disney. The footage was a very minimal look at the upcoming film, but it did bring excitement for the shareholders at Disney! As we mentioned last week at The Nerd Chambers, the Star Wars Celebration is coming up very shortly. That being said we will most likely get our first public look at Star Wars Episode VII The Last Jedi during the celebration.

**********************************

POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD.                               POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD.                               POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD.

**********************************

There was a little insight posted on IGN by Alex Gilyadov about what happened during the shareholders event for Episode VII…

Disney held its annual shareholders meeting in Denver where it showed off footage from The Last Jedi, previewing what happens immediately after the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. According to Los Angeles Times reporter Daniel Miller, the new clips shows Rey handing Luke his lightsaber while he asks Rey, “Who are you?”

Other characters also appeared in the screened footage, including Chewbacca, Finn, and General Leia, but Miller did not offer specific context for how they appear. Miller also said the footage jumped to a number of settings, from oceans to forests, deserts, and mountain ranges.”

It will be a very exciting time next month during the Star Wars celebration! Go tweet us @TheNerdChambers, and let us know what your expectations are for Star Wars Episode VIII The Last Jedi are!
