Here's your daily "aww..." for the day:

I'm happy that Sony/Marvel could strike a deal. I'm a little ignorant in comic knowledge of the Civil War and Infinity Wars plot lines, but from what I've seen in the trailer of upcoming Avengers 2: Age of Ultron film I can see where the MCU is going with the Spider-Man addition to be added in future film crossovers. Kudos to them. I wonder which actor will fill the giant shoes of Spiderman. Poor guy's going to have a lot of scrutiny/pressure to face from fans of the comic and movie adaptions.

As far as the MCU... I think at some point you have to worry about contracts, age and keeping faces fresh in Avengers and the heroes side movies over the next decade. Black Panther, Dr. Strange, The Inhumans and Captain Marvel have that "fresh factor" and could be a big risk or pleasant surprise since they're spending resources on those movies. I'm always surprised how they find a way to interweave these movies together into the MCU with their phases, so I don't have too much doubt.

What I do worry about and I don't know how the rest of you guys feel, but I'm a little concerned with superhero saturation in entertainment. I found it interesting last year that Marvel struck a deal with Netflix and greenlighted four Marvel series for production see http://screenrant.com/marvel-netflix-deal-tv-shows-daredevil-luke-cage-iron-fist-jessica-jones/. Daredevil being the first of those to be released on April 10th this year.

I've been on a nostalgia trip lately listening to the Final Fantasy Tactics OST.

I've been hoping for a new Final Fantasy Tactics or Tactics Ogre game announcement for some time, but I haven't heard much in terms of development or interest in another entry in either series.

My guess is the Kickstarter project, "Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians" created by Playdek with Yasumi Matsuno behind the story and Hitoshi Sakimoto composing the score is probably about as close as I'm going to get for now.

As far as other tactical rpgs go... I, at least am looking forward to the recently announced Fire Emblem "If" (3DS) game whenever it's finished and reaches the west.

I'm really feeling Japan's Xenoblade Chronicles X cover:


I hope in the west that we get a cool cover like theirs.

It would be nice to hear some sort of feedback from Nintendo that acknowledges the WSJ story and confirms some level of involvement in the reported talks.

Edit: Forgot to post this meme I made over the weekend. I think it's the first I've ever made, yet I can't remember... Anyway hope you all enjoy:
81  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Netflix Is Developing a Live-Action ‘Legend of Zelda’ Series on: February 06, 2015, 05:22:34 PM
From WSJ today:
http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2015/02/06/legend-of-zelda-netflix-series/

"Netflix is describing it as “Game of Thrones” for a family audience"

Lol. Wat? Kinda hard to imagine G.R.R.Martin's "everybody must die" style of writing to Zelda. What do you say RPGFans on this breaking news?
82  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade Chronicles X on: February 05, 2015, 03:21:52 PM
I have no idea when we'll see this state side, but I'm loving the development updates that are becoming more increasingly frequent for us to devour.

The story appeared late last night, but still relevant today. 80,000,000 Anthem members info hacked. Be on the lookout for identify theft RPGfans who have Anthem. Freakn' hackers...

...I'd at least get some twisted enjoyment out of seeing a live action Macross 7.

I can see your guys sceptism, since past adaptions haven't gone well (i.e. Speed Racer or Dragon Ball), but how about an adaption of Macross Plus? I could see that translating well to the big screen with a good budget, script and cast. Think of the fierce rivalry and tension between the two test pilots without the big picture intergalactic fight for planetary resources (as in the original Macross saga) throw in the love interest (Sharon Apple) and there's a little more interest there as well.

Apparently the script isn't dead after all. This came out today:

Went online again to see if I can get the recent Ike amiibo at a decent price without having to deal with importing or scalpers. Left disapointed, so I turned to images.google.com for some Amiibo meme therapy.

True story actually.

Your steriotypical scalper:

A quick Google search tells me that Club Nintendo will shut down 11:59pm PT on 6/30/2015, so you got time DICE to acquire a few more coins ;)

Couldn't find a more recent thread, so I'll leave my thoughts here. So any guesses as to the possibility that we may see a teaser trailer to the movie now titled, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" this weekend during America's big game, the Super Bowl? Too soon? IMDb says the movie is slated to open in the U.S. on March 16, 2016. Rumors circulating the internet this month is that the teaser trailer is supposedly attached to the soon-to-open, "Jupiter Ascending."

Marshawn "Beastmode" Lynch had custom cleats made:


And, his limited edition Skittles are back just in time for this weekend's Super Bowl.


Devoted "12th man" fan makes a tribute to Lynch with a portrait of Lynch made out of Skittles.


Finally, he gives a press conference on behalf of Skittles this week answering serious questions*:

Not to be confused with a Seahawks fan, but this guy is pretty funny off and on the field, heh.
