The Nintendo Switch is hitting without a Virtual Console. This doesn’t really bother me, rather it raises questions about how quickly the company is rushing the console out the door. Which also really doesn’t bother me, because I’m not getting it at launch.
Okay! Okay! Okay. I know, I know we’ve posted a lot of these rumors before. But! But! But. This time it’s one of the more reputable, accurate Star Wars sites reporting it.
Ah, yeah! Mother! Fucker! Apparently us, unwashed and undeserving swine, are getting six seasons of Voltron: Legendary Defender. Maybe more.
Louis C.K. got himself two new stand-up specials coming to Netflix. Which is fantastic news to me. Yeah, real profound copy. I know. Fuck.
NASA has dropped the boom on their teased discovery. Seven Earth-sized planets 40 light-years away. Three in the habitable “Goldilocks” zone.

Fox has announced its first casting for the X-Men TV series. Jamie Chung! As Blink!

Simon Kinberg is probably directing the next X-Flick, X-Men: Supernova. Should this excite you, should you be excited that Bryan Singer isn’t directing it, remember. Kinberg fucking *wrote* X-Men: Apocalypse.
News! Big news! Aliens, it’s gotta be aliens, right? Oh man! Exciting. Sort of. Until you realize we’re destroying ourselves at a fantastic rate, and even getting *out* of this solar system is nearly impossible for us. Man. Really brought down the vibe in here. But, but still, I’m excited.
