I'm already waiting anxiously for the first expansion, since they strongly hinted in the Great Mistake video there'll be a Scandinavia (+Germany?) faction coming. Cheesy

I find it interesting that they sort of imply that there might be a "proper" US faction, though doing so may or may not be redundant.

Thing is, and I know they did not intend this when they designed her, Susan Fielding just plain rubs me the wrong way.  I can understand what they were going when they designed her and the faction, but for some reason the combination of her look, her voice acting, the lines she's given, all on top of the general idea that ARC is basically Illuminati Inc. just plain ticks me the heck off.  I dunno why, she just does.

Meanwhile, down south, Corazon Santiago's father, Brazilian Miles Quaritch, is leading humanity's biggest military badasses in an Avatarian rematch of epic sequel proportions.  Which is just awesome.

The Franco-Iberia Coalition, packed with Artists, Retrograde Thrusters and a Soldier will prove their Supremacy to all!  lol

I am Commander Rejinaldo Leonardo Pedro Bolivar de Alencar-Araripe.  You killed my space hamster, prepare to face Pure military might!

Though it might be a while before I actually play that out.  Tongue

On the bright side, they might announce the next XCOM after the game's release.  We got a semi-sorta confirmation of its existence here, end of the interview at the bottom.

Call of Duty: AW Launch Trailer

And to counter it:

Civ: BE's Intro Cinematic "The Chosen"

Oooooh, and this just in, some panels from Firaxicon are up on the Civ: BE youtube channel.

Designing the Soldiers in XCOM

Interestingly, a lot of the current class choices were designed around the fact that the game was already almost done, and had to fit in with the already done maps.  Also, Prestige Classes were a thing, but were canceled.

The Art of XCOM

A lot of this is stuff we've heard before if you've been following XCOM from the Game Informer announcement, but it's interesting to see regardless.

There's also some stuff about Civ, of course, like what The Great Mistake might be in Beyond Earth.  "NOT CANON, internet, NOT CANON!"

Time for some brain damage (subtype:fun)! Grin
So every League of Legends character has a /dance animation.
I don't know if any share dances, but there's apparently around 120 LoL characters.
Here's 72 of them.

Note that some of those dances are actually multiples of the same character with either 1.) different skins, or 2.) upgraded skins.  Can definitely see why Ahri got a Pop Star skin now.

Oh, and now I get what Tychus's /dance was supposed to be now.  Now I just gotta figure out the other ones.

Guess I'm prompted to ask, "hey aren't we over Half Life yet?"

Not until we get the third episode we were SUPPOSED to get, no.

Scarlett Johansson to possibly star in live-action Ghost In The Shell movie

Well, of all the parts to be typecast for, kickass action babe probably one of the better ones.  Hopefully the rest of the movie isn't a complete and utter failure.  Hopefully.

An Indiegogo campaign wants to swarm Valve's offices with Gabe Newell impersonators to show that We. Want. Half-Life 3.

Over the course of four days (as of this post), they have raised... 1% of $150,000.  Yeah, I don't have high hopes for this succeeding in any fashion.  Tongue

As long as there is no Grown Ups 3 opening the same weekend, it'll do great.  Tongue

One of the things I love is finding artwork for media from its earlier days of development.  It always is interesting to see how a work could have looked like, and how it evolved.  Sometimes the final product is actually an improvement.  Sometimes, though, you wish they had stuck with their original idea.

I don't know about the recent TMNT movie, but I get the feeling some people would have preferred the original.

Reminded me of This Bebop.
Same artist did Rocksteady, but while as excellently executed I don't think it's as thematically coherent.

Well this is interesting.  The pictures have been taken down because "they are 'For next TMNT movie that is not released yet.'"

I think some people are getting a bit touchy...

We are possibly five years away from fusion reactors

So the Stargate program finally is allowed to let that tech trickle down, I see.  Wink

Zombies with exo-suits

That is all.

If they were going to do Civil War, they should have done it before they executed SHIELD by publically revealing Hydra had eaten out the heart of it. Because Agents of SHIELD is doing a very good job of showing what happens when that sort of database falls into villainous hands.

Civil War is really dangerous territory to be taking the franchise. It turned Reed Richards into someone who's pretty much operating on the same moral level as Doctor Doom, and left them with no way to redeem Stark as a character except to give him personality backup that conveniently last saved before any of the Civil War/Secret Invasion mess started and even now it seems he's starting to veer back into that territory as Marvel basically get around to their version of Infinite Crisis.

True, true.  But remember: this isn't the comics.  This is the crew that made Guardians of the Galaxy a smash hit.  They might be getting a bit overconfident now, but they just might have reason to be.

Uh oh, looks like we will be getting an MCU movie Civil War after all.

Ooooh, maybe we'll get some SHIELD cape buster armor out of this?

It sounds like James Pethokoukis is a little bitter after Hot Pikachu spurned his advances.

Aaaaand the counter argument.

Lo, and I have had mine own eyes opened to the cause and the solution for all the ills of our (as in, America's) once strong economy.  We need to get rid of cosplayers!

This forum really needs a ROFL smiley.
