Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Official Teaser Trailer [HD]
I know a lot of people are skeptical on this movie's preface to the creation of DC's Justice League, but it still looks interesting to me. ^_^

So yesterday a new Star Wars 7 movie trailer hits the internet and then a trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) leaks online after a Brazilian records with a shakey camcorder the trailer in an advanced screening of the Avengers 2 film w/Portuguese subtitles. Like a hawk, WB has been taking the leaked trailer down left and right on YouTube.

Here's an official screen from the teaser that the director, Zack Snyder promoted online yesterday to hype up the upcoming trailer:


I read somewhere that the new suit is supposed to be more armored and have "green" kryptonite to help protect him against Superman's punches. I didn't read the comics, so I don't know much about it or how Batman may have got his hands on the source. A quick Google search reveals that green krypton was created after the explosion of Krypton.

As for the bat-voice? While it doesn't sound exactly like the ol' Christian Bale. It's been confirmed to sound altered. Most likely due to fact that there will be modulation in Affleck's voice from being inside the new Batman armored suit.

Two epic trailers in one day. I can't get anything done at work in the last 24 hours. Nerdgasm.

I think the trailer will show in front of Avengers 2 IMAX screenings next week for select theaters in the states and then it'll probably pop online officially on YouTube or other people go to sites. Can't wait to hear your guys thoughts on it.

God..... March 25, 2016 feels sooooo far away.

...enough juice to render round objects in 3D and calculate jiggle physics.

Jiggle physics like this certain upcoming jrpg game? ;P

Xenoblade Chronicles X (comparison) E3 2013 x Direct 2015
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8f5XlrwhXsw

Sighed a little bit. But hell we're getting the best follow up to arguably the best jrpg in a decade on the Wii U, so I'm not phased by the "simplified" art direction of some scenes. Still a day 1 sell for me.

Edit: Because I'd betray my avatar if I didn't buy this game =P

 I remember hating the mud-wiped faces of Xenoblade but was really impressed with how emotive they were in cutscenes... hopefully the same happens here, at the very least, and the environment art has more than impressed so far

Oh those mud-wiped faces. Lol! I hear the 3DS port is worse since the port was handled by a 3rd party dev team. What you said reminds me of an article I read last night on NintendoLife about the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles X game. Quoted here for context to game character design and development:

"In modern game development, it can sometimes be tough for developers to fulfill their initial promise with a game. Often, this results from too much being shown too soon; as the project continues to grow and change, certain aspects must be scaled back in order to accommodate more."

Source: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2015/04/video_xenoblade_chronicles_x_may_have_been_subject_to_a_slight_graphics_downgrade

I think the writer was eluding to the reason that developers purposely tactfully make this decision due to the sheer scope and scale of the project in terms of environment, cutscenes, writing/pacing, etc. over close up character design. So perhaps that's the case here with the upcoming SO5. Since I just found out this week with the reveal of the story and some screens, I have no idea how far along they're in development, but maybe that's already been stated elsewhere.

I hate Toad but Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker is so cute and fun. The colors are amazing. I'd love to blaze and play

I know many aren't huge fans of paid DLC... I know I'm not, but if you register a Toad amiibo with your Wii U you can then unlock "pixel toad" in Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker in a "hide and seek" style.

I mostly listen to euro-metal acts so I've been expanding my horizons with other international metal bands after my recent trip to Asia. Found two cool bands this week. I'm picking my favorite track for each band:

Onmyo-Za 陰陽座 (Japan)
16th Single, which was announced on March 19, 2014 from "crescent of blue sky". Title song "crescent of blue sky" is (Full Size).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcVSDmJmJfU - Music Vdeo

Jambinai 잠비나이 (South Korea)
From the album "[차연(差延), Différance]" (2014 Remastered). Motion Video directed by Hyunjeong Shin.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56dv3XHUISY - Live performance. Slow build up with one instrument and ends with several. So many feels with this song.

My vote would be for Bill and Ted to jump in a phone booth and travel in time to the years of 1998~1999 and kidnap Yasunori Mitsuda from his golden age era days of Chrono Cross and Xenogears. ^_^
12  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: April 14, 2015, 02:23:08 PM
Watched a ton of movies on my flight to and from South Korea recently. A few brief highlights:

Fury
Holy moley wasn't expecting the movie to be as graphic as it was. But ya.. WWII and tanks bad stuff is going to happen. I didn't like the Logan Lerman's character, Norman Ellison, at first but towards the end of the movie, the kid was a freaking war machine.

The Theory of Everything
So many feels with this movie. Amazing how some of the movie lines could be so short at times, but deeply profound.

The Imitation Game
Alan Turing... an instrumental figure in the creation of the modern day computer. Benedict did a fantastic job as well. He certainly has the acting chops of an A-list actor. One of favorite lines that didn't have anything to do with cryptography, but still awesome was this one:

"Alan Turing: Do you know why people like violence? It is because it feels good. Humans find violence deeply satisfying. But remove the satisfaction, and the act becomes... hollow."

Taken 3
Poor Liam Neeson. The guy just wants to enjoy retirement, but we all know he has a very particular set of skills. These particular set of skills make big bucks at the box office. Jokes aside... his family keeps getting thrown into danger. I believe this movie was confirmed to be the final film for Bryan Mills as the movie poster claims in big bold writing, "IT ENDS HERE." Anyway, decent ammo dump movie.

Exodus: Gods and Kings
Batman is Moses. Don't mess with this guy or you'll likely have to come to grips with God's wrath and the ten plagues that come with it. A bit of Hollywood trivia The Ten Commandments (1956) was 220 mins. Exodus (2014) was shorter... clocking in at 150 mins. I still liked Exodus. Ridley Scott makes awesome historic epics as well as great sci-fi.

Birdman
I liked the movie, but I don't understand all the hype. I tried going into it with an open mind, but I'm a little surprised it won best pic at the Oscars this year. Maybe I'm missing something or was trying to read to hard in between the lines.

Hungergames: Mocking Jay Part 1
TBH I was a little bored with this one. Katniss reluctantly addresses the issue to be the appointed the symbol of the rebellion and how they try to use her in creative montages to spread the message of rebellion. Like the previous movie the ending is abrupt and leaves me wanting to find out more. Maybe I just miss the game action aspect of the series in the previous films. I guess that's why it's a part one of a finale. Oh and finally RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman. His cameos on this film was brief as I don't know where they were in filming during his passing, but I'll miss his acting.

I beat Star Ocean: First Departure and The Second Story when they were ported to PSP ages ago. I never got around to picking up Till the End of Time on PS2 back in 2003 while I was in the midst of transferring colleges. I can't remember why I passed on The Last Hope back when it came out in 2010 on PS3 either. I do know my wife beat the game and liked it though. I can vividly remember hearing a few expletives shouted out at some of the hard bosses and reoccurring game over screens that followed, lol.

I'm curious as to how Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness will turn out. I have yet to pick up a PS4, but am increasingly desiring to take the deep plunge with FF Type-0 out and FFXV's work in progress. Maybe a delightful FFXV/PS4 bundle is my Christmas tree's future this year. ^_^

I'm reserving judgement on this upcoming Star Ocean as I'm taking in the thoughts of the first few pages of this thread and the outside links with pictures and info.

The weirdest thing I can't seem to get passed is my first impression of the character designs like you folks. That pink hair female character's face. Is it just me or does it look like she's completely missing a nose in some shots? Her eyes do look a bit larger than the rest of the group too. Sigh...

I like your thoughts on art direction though Dice, a mature character design would be welcome. Easier on the eyes for a lengthy epic sci-fi sprawling adventure.

No mute city music, no mute city. Whopping thumbs down.

Oh man, now that you mention it, you're right -- you don't hear that classic song in the background. Bummer. Haha, I guess I was too dazed by the speedy fastness of that track.

Omg... this makes me want a new F-Zero game. I loved playing F-Zero on the SNES growing up. Digging the new speed of Mario Kart at 200cc looks super fast.
