Check out the All-New ANTiFanboy Podcast
Back in 2006, a group of angry young comic book nerds started a podcast with the focus of highlighting which comics that released that week were the must-read books but as the show grew in popular, it expanded into a show about video games, movies, television, comics, and everything else in between. Just remember one thing: We don't talk. We argue!

Things That Happened The Week Of 11/08/2015

Hello and welcome to another “Things that happened the week of” article for the week of 11/08/2015 where I break down all the cool, fun, and notable things that happened this week.

As the doomsday clock to Star Wars counts ever downwards we look on to the other non Star Wars related things that are happening in our entertainment world today.

Disney has officially swiped right on Michael Douglas, looking to get him back for the sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp. The Xbox One’s new UI has updated alongside their backwards compatibility launch that means you finally have reason to toss that 360 that’s been gathering dust. Fallout 4 released this week and sold a couple of millions of copies then we were treated to a Nintendo Direct this week that was fairly ho-hum until Cloud Strife decided to show up in Super Smash Bros.

So yeah altogether a solid week, check out below for the rest of the news for this week.

Also. RIP Ronda Rousey
