I don’t know about you Nerd Nation, but one of the movies I am most excited for in 2017 is Spider-Man: Homecoming. I think under the direction of Marvel more than Sony we will finally get the Spider-Man movie that actually does the web head justice. Personally I loved Tom Holland’s portrayal of the wall crawler in Captain America: Civil War and can’t wait for the movie Homecoming to hit theaters. In the mean time I have enjoyed the trailer several times over and now we get to watch an awesome 8-bit version of it as well.
Have you ever battled it out with someone using old wrapping paper roles? I’m sure most of us have at some point in our lives because those make great swords/light sabres. Well take that concept and turn it up to 11 and you have BoxWars! Box wars is essentially a cosplayers dream because you can use your creativity to create awesome looking armor and weapons, then use them for glorious battle, and finally destroy them without caring too much because it’s all made out of cardboard.
It’s been several months since we got our first glimpse of Injustice 2 and now we finally get our first full story trailer. It was definitely worth the wait because this game looks amazing. Of course all of our favorite DC heroes and villains are here with some new faces and what looks to be a pretty intense story line. The DC universe are at odds and things have definitely escalated since the last game. Of course there is an evil master mind behind it all but you’ll have to watch the trailer to see who it looks like it is.

Nintendo was the king of home gaming consoles back in the 90s and few consoles are more recognizable and memorable than the Super Nintendo! I remember playing awesome games like Star Fox, Mario Kart, Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, and tons of others for hours with my friends. Well if you’re like me and have some really great memories with this iconic gaming console, then you’re probably gonna want to pick up a pair of these awesome Super Nintendo themed sneakers.
Disney is definitely moving fast (no pun intended) when it comes to the third installment of the Cars movie franchise. Last week we got our first look at some of the new Cars that will be appearing in the latest movie and this week they have released the second trailer. The first trailer left us with some unanswered questions and many fans feeling a bit uneasy about the approach Disney was taking. However, this new trailer sheds some much needed light on the first trailer and really brings back that familiar Disney and Pixar feel that we have all come to know and love.
A segment of Conan O’brien’s late night show known as the Clueless Gamer is becoming it’s own show. Most of us have at some point in our lives at least seen a little bit of Conan O’brien but this particular segment is fairly new. It started in 2012 and the basic premise is Conan is given a video game that he has no idea how to play, and tries to review/make fun of it. He usually has guest stars that play with him and the whole thing is pretty hilarious and entertaining.
So it looks like Netflix is getting into the gaming industry, as if taking over as the king of streaming video content wasn’t already good enough. Actually it’s not really that serious and I doubt they will be making any triple A gaming titles in the near future. However, they did just release an official 8-bit mini game based on their hit series Stranger Things. It’s online right now and free to play so if you are a fan of the series or even just a fan of the 80s and 90s in general, then this might be worth checking out.
