How Marvel’s Inhumans Connects to Agents of SHIELD
This article contains full spoilers for Marvel's Inhumans. Make sure to read IGN's review of Marvel's Inhumans: The First Chapter.
Marvel's Inhumans: Season 1 might not be leading up to a point where Black Bolt faces down with Daisy Johnson, but ABC's other TV series featuring a cast of Inhumans, Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, has a very important impact on this new series.
Agents of SHIELD introduced the concept of Inhumans into the MCU when Skye unwittingly underwent a Terrigenesis transformation back in Season 2. The season ended with a box of Terrigen crystals falling into the ocean, infecting Earth's water supply and fish population and then setting off a string of Terrigenesis transformations across the globe, spawning a whole bunch more Inhumans.

Flashpoint’s Iris West May Come from a Different Time Period
Kiersey Clemons, who will star as Iris West in Flashpoint, discussed her role in the upcoming DC film, hinting at the possibility of her character coming from a different time period.
Speaking to ET Online, Clemons said that "because of going back and forth past and future with The Flash, you don't even know what time period you actually meet Iris." According to the actress, they're still deciding how to develop her character and handle her relationship with The Flash/Barry Allen in the movie.
Clemons also discussed the status of the movie, saying, "We're in the process of still replacing our director. We just got a new script." Last year, director Rick Famuyiwa exited the project, which Clemons previously said she found "very upsetting," as his involvement was a major reason she wanted to do the film.
Marvel’s Inhumans Is Still Bad Even With Extra TV Footage
Marvel’s Inhumans debuted in IMAX theaters earlier this month, and tonight the show debuted on television. The IMAX version combined the first two episodes into a movie, whereas ABC ran the first pair of episodes back-to-back as a two-part premiere. It was revealed ahead of release that the TV version would have about 10 minutes of extra footage, so here’s a breakdown of what’s different and whether it changes the quality of the show.
Warning: this article contains spoilers for the first two episodes of Inhumans!
The only noticeable difference is an extra storyline featured only in the TV version. Remember when Gorgon stomped on the moon rover with his hoof? It turns out that a glimpse of his hoof was noticed by a human scientist named Louise (Ellen Woglom), who was monitoring the rover’s camera feed. She works at a private aerospace company as their space and lunar expert. Spurred on by curiosity, she investigates what we know to be the Inhumans who live on the moon inside the city of Attilan.
Nintendo Blocks Its YouTube Affiliates From Livestreaming Its Titles
Nintendo has announced new policy that restricts livestreaming of its games on YouTube.
The announcement was originally made in an email to members of its Nintendo Creators Program, which gives members rights to monetize videos of Nintendo games on YouTube as long as they meet specific guidelines.
It would appear that these rules no longer extend to YouTube Gaming Livestreams, which the email says "fall outside the scope of the Nintendo Creators Program."
To add to the confusion, Nintendo points out that Nintendo Creators are free to create a second account to livestream its games on, or otherwise remove themselves from the Creators Program and register their videos for manual review.
What Is and Isn’t in FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch
FIFA 18 marks the long-running soccer franchise’s return to Nintendo systems after an absence since 2014. But the return of EA’s series, now on the NIntendo Switch, isn’t without its drawbacks.
EA has previously disclosed that FIFA 18 wouldn’t be feature-complete when compared to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, as well as that it’s not running on EA’s internal Frostbite engine. With the game now out, and headlining one of Switch’s most-packed release weeks yet, we have a clearer picture of what is — and what isn’t — included in the Switch version of FIFA 18, as well as some explanation from previous EA interviews about these features’ respective absences.
Elon Musk Plans Mars Rocket, City-to-City Rocket Travel
Elon Musk wants to fly you to Mars, the Moon, or NYC, all using the same rocket.
Musk, whose SpaceX and Tesla companies have evolved from pie-in-the-sky ideas to private space flight and auto-piloting car realities, announced the plans in a speech in Adelaide, Australia.
The rocket system would have more room onboard than an Airbus A380 commercial airliner and travel at a maximum speed of 17,000 mph. Trips from New York City to London would take just 29 minutes.
"If we’re building this thing to go to the moon and Mars, why not go other places as well?" Musk asked, according to The Washington Post.

The announcement, which you can see on Twitter, at first appears to be nothing but a video of some off-screen gameplay. However a quick camera zoom out reveals the game clearly running on Switch.
