NetherRealm Studios was founded in 2010 and they arguably haven’t made any bad console games yet. Mortal Kombat was hailed as a great return to form for the infamous series and Injustice: Gods Among Us brought a very interesting take on the DC Universe. Sure, Mortal Kombat X lost a step or two, but it was by no means a negative experience. That’s why the upcoming sequel, Injustice 2, is very much look forwarded to when it releases on May 16th. Let’s just hope you weren’t planning on using everyone’s favorite service in Amazon.com to purchase it if you haven’t already. Turns out that the online giant has completely run out of PlayStation 4 and Xbox copies at the time of this writing.

Navigating to Injustice 2’s Amazon product page will reveal that the video game is currently unavailable for pre-order. That includes both systems and the Standard and Ultimate editions. Here’s hoping that you’re seeking NetherRealm’s latest creation from the PS Store, Xbox Marketplace, Wal-Mart, or dare we say it (with a shiver up our spine)…Gamestop. If for whatever reason you don’t want to visit Amazon, we’ve included a handy dandy picture showcasing the unavailableness. I’m aware that isn’t a word.

Injustice 2 Sold Out on Amazon for Both Consoles

This isn’t the first time that Amazon has sold out of gaming stock. However, it’s up in the air if they’ll get more copies before Injustice 2 releases in a few weeks. Amazon has been very popular among gamers lately thanks to the decent discount you get on new purchases if you’re a Prime member. Plus, the free release date delivery doesn’t hurt either. So if you haven’t pre-ordered it from Amazon yet, looks like you’ll have to risk being hounded at Gamestop or purchase it digitally.

Injustice 2 also got new details in the form of the main antagonist’s moveset yesterday. In case you’ve been living under a very deep rock, Braniac makes his way to Earth with projectiles, robotic clones, and tentacles/probes to fight by his side against our heroes. You can check out that article here.

Amazon’s great Fallout TV show is nominated for 16 Emmys

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
