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!

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!

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!

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!
