Spider-Man Visits Children in Hurricane Shelter

Hurricane Harvey has been one of, if not the most destructive and deadly storms in the history of the United States. However, in the midst of all the destruction and devastation caused by Harvey it has some how managed to bring out the best in people. America has rallied together to help the families that have been devastated by the storm and believe it or not, our favorite web head has managed to find his way down to Houston to help lift spirits. That’s right Spider-Man himself visited the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston which has received more than 9,000 evacuees. This is an awesome example of someone doing what they can to help out people in desperate need right now. 

Overwatch Animated Short “Rise and Shine”

For those of you that are fans of Overwatch then you will definitely want to check this out. Also if you are an avid player of Overwatch then you probably know Mei the “tenacious climatologist” who can be one of the most annoying characters to play against. Nothing is worse than when you have her almost dead and she throws up her ice wall or protects herself with her ice shield either escaping completely or turning the tide on you. However, after watching this animated short from Blizzard you will definitely see her in a different light. I have to admit that I never thought I would like her as a character but now all I want to do is actually try playing as her. 

Elektra and Black Widow Stunt Doubles Film Epic Fight Scene

Lauren Mary Kim is the stunt double for Elodie Yung who plays Elektra in the Netflix series DareDevil and, Amy Johnston is the Stunt double for Scarlett Johansson who we all know plays Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Together they are responsible for making these two awesome female characters look bad ass on screen. Which leads to the question who do you think would win in an on screen battle Nerd Nation? Do you think Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow would be the winner or do you think Elodie Yung’s Elektra is tougher? I definitely think it would be awesome to watch and hopefully one day we could see the Avengers collide (then eventually team up with) the Defenders.

Anime Fidget Spinners

This awesome video just goes to prove that all you need to do to make something cool and exciting is turn it into an anime. Fidget spinners are the latest toy craze for kids and some adults. I’ll admit that I have dabbled a bit and my kids have them as well. There are however, some people out there that think fidget spinners are going to be the fall of society. Honestly, I think we can all agree that this fidget spinner anime is just plain entertaining. Anime Fidget Spinners comes from the Corridor YouTube channel and is pretty hilarious. I definitely recommend giving it a watch and sharing it with your friends.

Back to the 90s Music Video

I don’t know about you Nerd Nation, but I often find myself wishing I could go back to a simpler time, back when I was a kid and had no cares in the world. I wish I could go back to the 90s. Unfortunately, time travel only exists in the movies but that doesn’t mean that we can’t revisit the 90s. Thanks to Ben Giroux we can do just that by watching this totally awesome music video. There are so many great references made to the 90s that if you grew up then you will mostly likely remember every single one of them. Of course there is a bit of sadness when you think that most, if not all, of these great things we remember from our childhood don’t really exist anymore. However, it’s a great video and definitely worth remembering the 90s on this throwback Thursday.

Judge Dredd TV Series in the Works

Great news Judge Dredd fans, it looks like there is a TV series based on our favorite futuristic law bringer currently in the works. Personally we here at Nerdgasm Needs are huge fans of the 2012 Dredd film and have been eagerly waiting for a sequel. Though this is not a direct sequel to the movie, fans should still be pretty excited about this announcement. Honestly, an on going TV series might actually be a little better avenue for Dredd especially with so much content already written in the comic series. This has the potential to be one of the best comic booked based series on TV if it is done right. Also be sure to check out the official poster below.

Halo 3 Room Locked for 10 Years…Until Now

Halo 3 is arguably one of the best games to ever grace the Xbox 360. I for one have very fond memories of playing Halo 3 for endless hours with my friends. In fact, it was the whole reason I bought an Xbox 360 over the PlayStation 3 at the time. One of the best parts about the game was the amazing campaign mode that was filled with action mystery, and some hidden secrets. Some of those secrets were meant to be found while others in the game where never meant for fans to see. However, one group of dedicated players spent 10 years trying to get into an area of the map that was blocked but eventually their hard work and tireless efforts paid off. 

That Spidey Life Bruno Mars Parody

I don’t think anyone is more excited about Spider-Man: Homecoming than we are here at Nerdgasm Needs. We can’t get enough of the web head and thanks to the Nerdist YouTube channel we have a new song and music video that we are obsessed with. It’s called That Spidey Life and is a parody of Bruno Mars’ That’s What I Like. The song is already super catchy but when you throw the Wall Crawler into the mix, now it’s just on a whole new level of awesomeness. It’s that Spidey life!
