Pickle Rick! (Rick and Morty Remix)

In the most recent season of Rick and Morty ol grandpa Rick has turned himself into a pickle. Why would he do such a thing? Because he can, of course. In fact it has been a question that many fans were asking when season 3 was first teased. To be honest Rick seems to be a lot more bad ass now that he has turned himself into a pickle. If you are a fan of Rick and Morty then you will definitely wanna give this a watch. The song is actually really catchy and will most likely be stuck in my head all weekend. So check out The Pickle Rick Rick and Morty Remix below and as always let us know what you think of it Nerd Nation.

Karl Urban In Talks To Play Dredd Again

Back in May it was announced that a live action Judge Dredd TV series was in the works titled Judge Dredd: Mega City One. If you missed that story then go ahead and click here to check it out. Not many details were given at the time, not even who would be playing Dredd himself. Well for those of us that loved the 2012 Dredd film there may be some amazing news in store for us very shortly. According to Karl Urban himself, he has been in talks with producers to reprise his role as Judge Dredd in the new Mega City One TV show that is currently in development. After watching the 2012 Dredd movie I honestly can’t picture anyone else in that role.

Judd Nelson Returning to The Transformers Universe

30 years after Judd Nelson originally voiced the character of Hot Rod in the 1986 Transformers animated movie, he is once again returning to reprise his role in a new Transformer series. The NEW streaming series will be titled Titans Return and will also feature the voices of Jason David Frank (The Green Ranger/Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher/ Star Trek: The Next Generation). Another awesome announcement is the return of Peter Cullen as the voice of the iconic Optimus Prime. Unfortunately he was absent in the last Transformers streaming series titled Combiner Wars. Both Combiner Wars and The Titans Return are exclusive to the streaming service Go90.

LEGO Officially Approves Voltron set for Production

Last year we told you about one LEGO builder who submitted an awesome Voltron Lion design to get approved for production. If you missed that story then just click here to get the details and see the image gallery. Well almost a year to the day Voltron fans and builder len_d69 got some pretty awesome news. The submission required 10,000 fan votes to be passed on to the next stage of the approval process. Now after receiving the required amount of fan votes, the Danish toy company has announced that it will officially take this amazing Voltron set into production and it will eventually be available for purchase to the public. I don’t know about you guys but this will definitely be one set that I have to own. 

Overwatch Summer Games Returning

Last year the first annual Overwatch Summer Games was experienced by hundreds of thousands or possibly even millions of Overwatch players. Unfortunately, I was not one of them but fear not Nerd Nation because if you missed it like I did then you are in luck. Blizzard has announced the return of the Overwatch Summer Games, Lucio ball, and much more. They have explained everything in great detail in a video that I have posted below for you viewing pleasure. I don’t know about you guys but I am definitely excited for the new games, maps, skins and everything else that Blizzard wants to throw our way. 

Voltron Season 3 Official Trailer

The new Voltron series on Netflix has been one of, if not the best renditions of the classic 80’s cartoon that has ever been made… and that includes the original. There have been 2 exciting seasons of the series so far and it looks like things are going to get even more intense in season 3. So far I have loved this series and so have my kids. I tried going back and watching some of the original series and in my opinion it just doesn’t hold up very well, especially when you have this to compare it to. That being said I can’t wait for season 3 to be released on Netflix especially after watching the official trailer. I have posted it below for your viewing pleasure so be sure to check it out!  

Harsher Punishments For “Bad Behavior” In Overwatch

One thing I can’t stand in multiplayer matches are people that go out of their way to piss other players off. Whether it’s through griefing, cheating, or just plain talking too much shit. Unfortunately cheating and trolling are a part of any multi-player game and Overwatch is no exception. However, Overwatch developers Blizzard has stated that they will now start administering harsher punishments for players who exhibit what they consider “bad behavior.” Not only that but they have announced that the reporting system will finally be brought over to the PS4 and Xbox One. Personally I think this is a good thing for those of us who like to play the game and have some friendly competition. 

Pacific Rim 2: UPRISING Official Teaser

So like most of you out there we here at Nerdgasm Needs were not able to make it to Comic Con International this year, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t still enjoy some of it’s perks. For example, we still get to see the first official teaser trailer for Pacific Rim 2: Uprising on the same day it was revealed at Comic Con. In this teaser trailer we get our first look at John Boyega all suited up and ready to pilot his Jaeger who we can only assume to be the new and improved Gypsy Avenger. Not only that, but we also get a good look at the new batch of Jaegers that will be joining the fight for survival against the Kaiju.
