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.

/s
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. >.>

So watched last week's episode of Agents of Shield yesterday (I'm a week behind because Hulu). I have really been enjoying this season of Agents of Shield. Although I have to admit that the "villians" for the season do have a point in that Shield does need some kind of oversight....although I think having five random agents be that oversight is kind of no better of a solution.

Anyways, been playing some more Radiant Historia recently. Made it up to Chapter 1 for both Histories now. Only a matter of time before I finish the game (or give up like the slacker that I am).
Do not give up on that game, it is amazing!

So I found out yesterday that in the alternate mission for chapter 6 you can just idle for 23 minutes and you still win (assuming you have avoid equipped). So yay, I got Blizzard BOM-II while eating dinner.

Which ones are the instructor uniforms? The gold trimmed ones?
Yup. They would probably be fine if it wasn't for the pattern on the cape. It just makes the outfits.....too noisy I guess? I ended up giving it to Cater, Seven, and Eight, but I may change them back before I'm done with the game.

Yay, I'm a double poster! I got the Instructor Uniforms yesterday before going to bed, and oh my god they are tacky. Also, the Code Crimsons for chapter 3-6 were considerably less interesting than the ones for Chapters 2 and 7. Kind of disappointing, especially since the one for Chapter 6 was one of the most boring things in the game (23 minutes of mostly just standing around and there is no way to speed it up).

Watched last week's episode of World Trigger over the weekend. I think they are actually getting good at adapting this material. There was a small added scene which was both hilarious and fitting with the characters (the second idiot trio) that it involved. And I think it did a surprising good job of showing terror on Chika's face at the end of the episode. It still has the awkward pauses every so often, but I can live with those.

Squeenix updated their teaser site: http://www.jp.square-enix.com/secret/?hc_location=ufi

It now says:

STAR

20150_1

They zoomed out on the picture and it now shows a blue planet. So, unless they're suddenly in charge of Lunar or are complete dicks, this may very well be a Star Ocean thingie.
I am shocked, shocked I say, at this development. Whoever could have predicted that this would be Star Ocean related? Why, whoever they are, they must be geniuses of the highest caliber! :p

Code:
Whee, on my fourth playthrough now! Gone through the game on the first three difficulties and now going through it on the last difficulty. Saved the Code Crimsons for my last playthrough (well except for the chapter 7 one because I believe I needed that one to trigger the ultimate weapon fights). Just did the chapter 2 Code Crimson last night.

It was interesting as apparently the reason that the security system was on at the base you assault in chapter 2 was because Class 0 broke in to recover confidential documents and activated the system so they could find the documents. I would not be surprised if the Code Crimson in chapter 4 reveals we actually did kill the Queen

Side note: Still hate chapter 8. Did it on max difficulty so I could unlock some stuff (l'cie mode and maybe the instructor uniforms) before completely finishing my fourth playthough, and I died so many times. Half of those deaths I don't even know what happened.

Code:
Did you accept becoming a l'cie or no? It changes the trials and cutscenes afterward. I declined. I guess the annoying part of the story for me is they use all these words from the FFXIII universe like Etro and l'cie without ever explaining them and it just compounds. Unlike Dragon Age, the extra lore stuff is required to completely understand what is happening. In Dragon Age they completely make sure you understand the story regardless if you want to make the extra effort. Reading the lore codexs and whatnot just enhances the story. Not so for this. I needed explanations. I didn't understand all these concepts when they were in FFXIII and I damn sure don't remember it now that it's been several years. That's the whole problem I have with the Fabula Nova Crystalis games. I doesn't help that you have to play through the game twice to get the full story... I am not doing that so I just read what happens on a second playthrough and it helped clarify some things, but still don't understand how any of the Etro stuff has to do with the civil war they were engaged in for 7 chapters. It felt like two different stories to me.

Code:
First playthrough? No. You lose if you choose to become l'cie. I was confused as you were talking about the Black Tortoise door as being purple and I had forgotten about the Gilgamesh fight because I was so overpowered for it on Cadet difficulty.

Anyways, I think they did a perfectly fine job explaining l'cie. I still have no idea of Etro, but it has only been mentioned once that I can recall. The connection between the war (which was not a "civil war") and chapter 8 is that the war triggered the end days. The prophecy of the end of times is brought up fairly frequently throughout the game, and having all 4 crystals controlled by a single nation triggered the end. Hell the first thing that Ace says in the trailer is a quote from the Nameless Tome about the end of all things.

Perfect example: The plot starts off taking place on an island in two different time periods: The present and 30 years later. 30 years later a character who was made an immortal by her immortal father in the first season is on the island, presumably investigating the aftermath of the plot in the present. She meets another resident of the island, and when she goes to explore a certain section of the island is warned not to. She goes anyway where she meets her immortal father who is, for some bizarre coincidence is living on the island. Except he's lost his mind and is living with the corpses of his wife and son and hallucinating that they're still alive. He tries to embalm her while alive, she escapes, they get into a sword fight, and she kills him and he gives her his katana with his dying breath. One episode later, about halfway through the season, this future arc is inconsequentially abandoned until the very last episode for a completely pointless plot twist.
You know that did not sound that bad (although very batshit insane) until you mentioned the future arc being completely abandoned.

Square Enix what are you teasing....

* posted excitable gif

* realized 'mobile' possibility

I'm going with Star Ocean 5 as it has three of the letters of Star and 0101 which is 5 in binary.
