The dates have finally been announced when the beta will drop for Black Ops 4, the upcoming installment for the Call of Duty franchise. It has been a sigh of relief the last few years when the developers have allowed us to indulge on early gameplay for multiple reasons. The biggest of course is for the not so hardcore fans to know if they will be interested in the newest Call of Duty. Then another benefit for the hardcore fans is they will be able to express their opinions of different gun balances pre launch. Even though some people may view the Call of Duty as a second evil to EA with their microtransactions, it really has been much appreciated that we have been getting betas for the past few games. Yes, for most part the franchise has become stale, but I will argue that the recent Call of Duty installment betas have lead to a much more polished game release.
Multiplayer Beta Dates:
Playstation 4 (First Weekend):
Start: August 3rd 10am PT / 1pm ET
End: August 6th 10am PT / 1pm ET
Playstation 4 and Xbox One (Second Weekend):

Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta: Classified
There are a plethora of different elements the community is eager to get their hands on in the beta. Black Ops 4 is trying it’s best to make Call of Duty feel innovated again, but this could be its ultimate downfall. As much as the community complains about Call of Duty being stale by not taking risks, these same people lash out when the game does change (jet packs). There is potential for a pivotal year for Call of Duty with the addition of new combat changes such as self healing, medics, five man matches, and BATTLE ROYALE… this could be a huge turning point for the franchise. If pulled off correctly, fans will find their love for the game again. But if the additions lack, it could be the final dagger to the heart for the franchise. As a long time Call of Duty lover… I really hope this could be the change we are needing.
Let us know what you think about the upcoming Call of Duty game, Black Ops 4. Are you interested with the changes? Are you buying in on a AAA title making a battle royale game mode? Are you excited for a possibly new tactical game play with self healing? Or do you just want Call of Duty to die already?
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!
There has been a long string of very successful Fast and Furious movies that have released and hit big. Weirdly enough this is my first one that I have seen. I’m giving this review to have a new look in the film from a prospective not many of you may have you love the franchise. All that being stated… Here we go!
I was definitely suprised about the path these films have taken. Again I haven’t seen any, but I always had friend who told me about the racing parts of these movies. They have taken a very huge shift from what they used to be, but I am very happy about that. It is more of an Expendables feel around these movies with the high speed missions and incredible action sequences that I was able to truly able to enjoy myself. The conflict between Don and the rest of the team felt very real, and for my first movie of the series I felt very attached to the characters when anything did happen. I so understand everyone’s love for these films now and I will need to do some catching up!
This movie all in all was a very interesting and exciting movie. Yes it may have been predictable for many portions of the film, and the dialouge weak at portions, but none the less it was extremely entertaining. I would give Fate of the Furious 7.5/10. The only portions it lacked in was predictably and dialouge. that being said I understand these films are not trying to have too of the ling dialouge credibility, but the film did do very well at hitting the key items for the genre. The action sequences and set pieces were perfect and felt so realistic. Let us know @TheNerdChambers what you thought of the Fate of the Furious!
The multi talented Josh Brolin who is in many entertaining films such as Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Avengers/Guardians of the Galaxy, and Men in Black 3 is now taking a big role in Fox’s Deadpool as the time traveling brute Cable! After a very successful Deadpool movie from Fox we are very excited to see the much anticipated Deadpool 2 coming out in 2018.
We had an absolute blast seeing a small teaser before Logan that quickly leaked online that didn’t show much other than the hilarious vulgar Merc with a Mouth. At the end of Deadpool we got a small tease about Cable being part of the sequel! If you don’t know Cable is pretty much the side quick/ good guy when it comes to the pair of Deadpool and Cable! It will be very interesting to see a good cop/bad cop sort of back and forth for the whole movie.
What do you think of Josh Brolin being Cable? Are there any better suited actors in your eyes. Let us know @TheNerdChambets!
