So some good news. I got an email from Nintendo last night informing me that there was an update to the Codename STEAM demo, which includes the ability to speed up the enemy phase! I'm assuming there is a similar update to the main game as well. So we now have the ability to speed up game play!

So I watched last week's episode of Agents of Shield. This episode covered May's Cavalry backstory...wow that was brutal. I saw where it was going fairly early on, but that didn't stop me from tearing up when it got there. Excellent episode.

iYakku has once again translated stuff for us --- this time it's of course the story trailer
I am so hyped after having watching this. I remember when people were worried that wouldn't be a strong central storyline. Not worried about that anymore. *giddy*

*checks thread, sees FF12 hate, is overjoyed* All I can really add at this point is that as far as I am concerned, it is the worst FF game. Damn single player MMO.

Oh and the ultimate final boss was ridiculous, stupid thing took over an hour to kill even dealing max damage with every attack....okay I think I recall he actually cut the damage to 1/3 or something, so I guess technically it wasn't max damage with every attack.

Starting a second run of Atelier Shallie. I am expecting this run to be hilarious as I got the last of my uber equipment last night. Short version is that I auto heal to full, have the best gear, and I have a combo which even when not fully set up can deal close to a million damage.....and the DLC boss has less than two million. So yeah, hilarity!

some stuff from famitsu review

-to play this enormous world and story you need time and effort
-the cutscene is too long so sometimes it feels like watching a movie
-the explanation for the world is good but too much cutscenes
-the tempo of dialogue is slow
-lack of explanations for game systems

....so it is a Monolith Studios game then? Good, that is exactly what I was hoping for. *hyped*

On that note, do we even know much about the movie other than that Batman is using this suit and that Batman and Superman are going to fight? For the record, I think Man of Steel was really bad, I just don't see any reason to dislike this movie yet. Low expectations, I can understand, it just seems like people are making a whole of assumptions to rip on the movie for no real reason.

And personally, I've never really cared about how one movie might affect another, even with the Marvel Universe. I just want good movies. Honestly half the time I feel like the Marvel movies are so obsessed with their universe it negatively impacts individual movies (Iron Man 2 is my go-to example).
Oh you are going to love Batman v. Superman if you don't like movies obsessed with their universes. Off the top of my head, I know that Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and Lex Luthor will all be in the movie. I think there are other characters from the Justice League which will be showing up as well because this movie really is Justice League part 1. Side note, love Iron Man 2.

Who said it wasn't?

Though lets try to keep game tiering battles down to a dull roar. They tend to lead towards circular arguments.

That said, FFIII is woefully underrated.
You know I think FFIII is the only one I haven't pla....oh wait no I've played it. I just block that from my memory most of the time. I'd probably end up putting it in the bottom third of FFs because I did not enjoy the remake when I played it (hated it so much that I put it down for half a year+ after getting to the first or second dungeon as I recall).

Actually, thats old D&D-ism. 5th edition provides a lot more per encounter abilities or regain of abilities on short rests. Even wizards can now much more rapidly regain their spells as well as having powerful at-will cantrips they can cast. 5th edition is a big improvement but I digress.
Yes let's avoid turning this into a D&D edition war thread....4th edition for life! :p

Batman using a power suit thing to fight Superman isn't exactly a new thing. I'm pretty sure it even happened like a decade before Iron Man ever used a special suit to fight The Hulk.
Whether it is new or not doesn't change the fact that it looked ridiculous (to me) in the five second clip of it in the trailer.

Actually....I just thought about Batman having an anti-Superman suit, and it seems like a really bad idea this early in the franchise. In Dark Knight Returns, Batman was at the end of his career having passed his prime decades prior and was partially using it to compensate for that. But in this movie, he is apparently going to have an Iron Man suit at the beginning of his career and then either use it forever and be overpowered for his entire rogue gallery or never use his most powerful gadget ever again for....reasons. This just does not seem like a good idea long term....then again that describes just about every decision made by DC regarding their movie verse. x_x

I can't believe you guys are all making fun of Miki.
I thought this place was more accepting of people with disabilities.
You put yourself in her place being born without a nose and getting shit like this from everyone.
Shame on you all.

Not having a nose is not a disability. Being born without a nose allowed Krillian to win a fight in the World Martial Art's tournament. So clearly it is closer to being a superpower than being a disability.

Guy looks great, the girl..... fell and hit the bottom of the uncanny valley.  Fuck, are tri-Ace taking fan input like Squarenix has been to fix that?  She looks different from the rest of the cast (and even the artwork) and it's really odd (move in the eyes, give her a bit more nose so she doesn't look like a person's thumb). 
Random thought, maybe it is intentional? Maybe she is supposed to be an incomplete program introduced by the 4th dimensional beings that was introduced into the game by accident prior to them finishing her character model. Or maybe she is a player character for a 4th dimensional being and character players look more artificial than the NPCs due to character customization. Actually that would kind of be an interesting mind fuck moment if that happened.

*sniffs* Is something burning? *looks down* Oh no, I'm just melting. Why did I mention the 4th dimensional beings? I'M MELLLTTTTINGGGG!!!!

All EJO wants is to make sure there aren't any Cylons lurking in their ranks (fortunately, last season's Diviner took care of one of them).

But yeah, it seems like they may be treating Baharine (or however its spelled), as the Movie-verse's flashpoint for the Civil War arc (and bonus points if they can get Spider-Man involved with that since he had a fairly prominent role in that story arc in the comics). And speaking of, more bonus points for actually making a Chinese knock-off of Xavier's School for Gifted Individuals.
I feel likethey aren't going to have events from Agents of Shield directly tie in to the set up for Civil War to try and make that movie more accessible, so I suspect that the Inhuman colonly will not be what sets off Civil War. What will set it off is beyond me though as the movie-verse currently doesn't seem to have that many unaccounted for powered humans. Also I suspect that Spiderman's role in Civil War will be drastically changed for the movie as Spiderman being unmasked (and then later magically getting a divorce with a free secret identity thrown in) will have no impact when he is just entering the universe as opposed to being established for more than a decade in universe.

As an aside, I feel like Agents of Shield has managed to take advantage of the lack of mutants in the MCU quite well. As a result of the lack of mutants, the introduction of Inhumans has gained an extra level of significance since this is the first time that Shield has encountered humans that have superpowers "naturally" as opposed to man made. Have to wonder how they would be able to realign that if they ever regain the cinema rights to the X-men.

Reading the descriptions of the seven models of mechs in the game, I feel fairly confident that I am going to end up using an Wels on my main characters.

A coworker showed me that Batman V. Superman trailer yesterday while we were at lunch. I laughed times during it for the wrong reasons (like the Iron Bat Suit or w/e that was that gave Batman glowy eyes). This movie is going to be horrible. >.>
