NEW Changes to COD: WW2

Sledgehammer Games has brought some changes to Call of Duty: WW2 which might make some of you happy but could possibly disappoint others. The update was live as of January 18 so it’s possible that players may not have noticed the changes. Just in case you weren’t sure what updates were made we have listed them below for your viewing pleasure. Also if you are like me and haven’t picked the game up in a while, then these changes might be something to possibly entice you back. These changes come right before the first major DLC drops for Call of Duty: WW2 titled Resistance. Now whether these changes are good or bad is really up to your own personal opinion. Check them out below. 

Blizzard’s Anime Short “MechaStorm”

Blizzard has come out with so many awesome animated shorts for all of their different games that I’m starting to think that maybe they should just go ahead and start their own animation studio. I don’t know about you Nerd Nation, but I would definitely be excited to see a Blizzard cinematic universe. That being said check out the awesome new animated short that Blizzard has released for the game Heroes of The Storm. The short is titled MechaStorm and is meant to introduce the new mecha skins for Rehgar and Tyrael, and the xenotech upgrade for Abathur which will all be available in game for players to use. Blizzard’s recent animated shorts have been done in spectacular CGI but this one is all anime style!

NEW Overwatch Map “Blizzard World” Release Date

One of the most exciting parts about Overwatch is when a new map is released for our gaming pleasure. Back at Blizzcon 2017 it was announced that Overwatch would be getting a new map for players to battle it out on called Blizzard World. The map looks like a theme park based on all of the most popular games that Blizzard has developed. As exciting as it was to hear that this new map was on it’s way, no release date was actually given at the time. Well fear not Nerd Nation because Blizzard has finally let us know when we will be able to actually play at Blizzard World and it looks like it is going to be a lot sooner than we had hoped. I don’t know about you guys but I am really excited for this map!

NEW Updates Coming! Is there still hope for Destiny 2?

It goes without saying that Destiny 2 had a really rough launch and even more rough couple of months since. There was so much hype surrounding it’s release that fans of the original could not wait to get their hands on the sequel, and new players lined up to be part of the phenomenon. However, upon release it became very apparent that player’s expectations were not going to be met and Destiny 2 fell short of all the hype. Now Bungie has decided to make some essential changes to the progression and loot system, as well as add more endgame rewards and activities in an effort to bring players back to the world of Destiny. This all sounds great, but you have to wonder if this is a classic case of “too little, too late“?

Call of Duty: The Darkest Shore Trailer

If you guys haven’t played the latest Call of Duty Zombies then you are definitely missing out. The puzzles are challenging, the zombies get ridiculously hard, but all and all it makes for a really fun and entertaining challenge. I personally have not actually been able to beat it yet, but just because I haven’t beat it doesn’t mean that I’m not looking forward to the new zombies dlc. It’s called The Darkest Shore and it looks even more intense than the original zombies for Call of Duty WW2. I have to admit that this looks a lot more gory than the usual zombie mode that we are used to. It seems like it’s crossing over into more horror territory similar to games like The Evil Within and Outlast.

Live-Action Halo TV Series Still in Development

I recently wrote about the return of Steven Spielberg’s animated series Animaniacs that isn’t set to debut until 2020. If you missed that story just click here to get the details on that. In that post I mentioned that a Spielberg directed, live-action, Halo TV series was announced 5 years ago along with the Xbox One reveal. I also mentioned that because we’ve been waiting so long for it that I am not holding my breath on the return of Animaniacs in 2 years. In all honesty I thought the Halo TV series was dead in the water but it looks like there still may be some hope left after all. I guess shame on us fans for giving up so easliy?

Windy Samurai LoFi Hip Hop

It’s been a while since I shared some music with you Nerd Nation, but I definitely thought you guys might like this awesome lofi hip hop song. Personally I love all kinds of music but I have been listening to a lot more chill type of music lately. I think it must just be the particular stage of my life that I am in right now. Anyways, the song is titled Windy Samurai and comes from an artist that goes by that name of Dominant. The reason I love this song so much is because it definitely reminds me of something out of a samurai anime series or movie. It is super chill and I could definitely picture this being in an episode of Samurai Champloo or Afro Samurai.

AWESOME Nerf Rival Minigun

This is the Nerf gun to decimate all other Nerf guns. I’ve seen a lot of customized Nerf guns and even plenty of Nerf mini-guns. My son even has one that is just the regular store bought version. However, this is the first time that I have ever seen a back pack, belt fed, Nerf mini-gun. This project comes from the Captain Xavier YouTube channel and is one of the coolest Nerf mods I have ever seen. Not only does this thing look intimidating but it definitely has the ammo capacity to back up that fierce look. Match the fire power and aggressive paint job, with Captain Xavier’s custom body armor and you have one mean looking Nerf player.
