After years of build up, Marvel’s The Defenders is finally releasing on Netflix this summer. Starting on August 18th you’ll be able to binge watch the long-awaited team up of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron Fist.The release date was found earlier today through a Youtube clip featuring all four defenders taking an elevator ride in Midland Circle.

If you look on the top left of the video, you’ll see a series of numbers: 23.253.120.81.You can plug those numbers into your browser as a URL, and this will take you to a website for the NY Bulletin, which is a paper in the Marvel Netflix Universe. It was most prominently seen in Daredevil as the workplace of two series regulars: Ben Urich and Karen Page. Once there, scroll down to the bottom and you’ll see a line saying “Watch Marvel’s The Defenders All Episodes Streaming Only on Netflix August 18.”

Other than that small reveal, the NY Bulletin website still has more content for fans to enjoy. You can browse newspaper covers which highlight pivotal events leading into The Defenders. The Bulletin website also includes a bit of fun video content. You can find a short interview with Iron Fist’s Meechum siblings at the top of the page. If that’s not your cup of tea, try clicking on the advertisement for Colleen Wing’s Chikara Dojo. This will bring you to her personal website. You can check out testimonials for her dojo or watch a cheesy video attempting to persuade youths into signing up.

While there, scroll down a bit more to find an advertisement for the Rand corporation. Clicking it brings you to Ward Meechum’s LinkedIn Page, which is filled with overly detailed information about his character in Iron Fist.

Many Marvel Netflix shows suffer from drawing out content. Fans often say that each show would be better off with maybe 3-4 fewer episodes. Luckily, The Defenders first season is limited to 8 episodes, rather than the usual 13. We’ll see how it plays out when the show launches on August 18th.

I'm a comedy writer living in NYC with a devotion to the PlayStation brand and a nasty anime obsession. When I'm not writing for the site, you can find me playing games or watching some form of television.

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.
