Screw George Lucas. Watching the digital version of Return of the Jedi, I was surprised by a ridiculous "Noooooooo!" added to Vader in the penultimate scene where he decides to pick up the emperor and toss him down the shaft. Gawd I hope JJ Abrams rescues this franchise and George Lucas is kept out of the editing room.

Behind the scenes of the care and passion being put into the creation of the game.

But it better play like Battlefield 3 and not 4 which seems mindless.

Ok, so anything is going to be better than the previous disaster of FF films, but seriously, why can't they find an actor for Reed Richards with say, more gravitas? It's like they're trying to do "X-Men First Class" with this cast, only they don't have Michael Fassbender. And Doom, seriously? 

Almost none of the actors are even 30 years old. Reed Richards has grey hair!. About the only thing good about casting decisions in the previous FF films was Michael Chiklis as The Thing. 

Maybe Fox will put this one out, but it's looking pretty weak to me. Hopefully the next trailer is better.

+Ray Cromwell Almost none of the actors are even 30 years old.

Alba and Evans back in the 2005 FF, they were 24 and they were supposed to portray the original older FF.

Also this reboot is influenced by the Ultimate series where the FF are young adults, Reed isn't in his 40s with grey hair. This younger cast does fit with what they used as source material.


+Pär Eklund  Sadly, this "reimagining" of FF seems as shallow

There's a lot of people out there who do not know of the existence of the Ultimate series so they are quick to judge assuming Fox completely changed the Fantastic Four, when they actually were influenced by source material made by Marvel. There are some elements where Fox didn't follow the source material, IE Dr. Storm and Johnny Storm. But guess what Marvel Studios hasn't been 100% following their own source material either. Yet they get praise and people just hate on Fox just to hate on Fox.

+John McDole Well, im sure they are wasting some money since it must be much more expensive to make one of these that is retrievable, compared to one that just gets dumped.

Let's hope that 'Third time's the charm' applies here.

It boggles the mind that this is something seen as achievable.

* I hope I'm correct in thinking that this is the second attempt at this.

At least it's possible in KSP.

Umm yeah, how are you supposed to publish a companion app for third party hardware without mentioning the name of the third party hardware?
We have just had the latest version of our SeaNav US iOS app rejected by Apple because we support the Pebble Smartwatch and say so in the app description and meta-data (we also state in the review notes that "This application was approved for use with the Pebble MFI Accessory in the Product Plan xxxxxx-yyyy (Pebble Smartwatch)".

+Jake Weisz Actually, I'm a utilitarian technocrat who is socially liberal, and somewhat fiscally conservative. I have voted for both parties and used to consider myself a small-l libertarian or a moderate Republican. I only vote Democratic in the last 12 years or so because the Republican party has shifted so far to the nutter-wing, that the Democrats now are essentially the party of Reagan, and Reagan Republicans like say, Bob Dole, these days would be considered liberals. 

If I actually care about say, investment in infrastructure, people, crafting policies for immigrants and gays to grant human dignity, or global warming, I really don't have a choice, because the Republicans are not putting forward any solutions. Bob Dole said it himself (http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/bob-dole-reagan-wouldn-t-survive-in-today-s-idea-free-gop)

But this is side tracking the thread, and once against you're stuck in binary thinking, that someone must be categorized in one group or another. My bias is towards facts and data driven policies, not tribal affiliation or even class interest, otherwise, I'd vote straight GOP party line to keep my taxes low and I pay a lot of taxes.

Holy Fscking Shit this looks good. Hard to believe it's using the same Frostbite 3 engine as Battlefield 4.

+Ray Cromwell I understand that it's in-engine. That doesn't change the fact that the animations won't look anywhere near as good in the actual gameplay.

Wow, the S6/Exynos is even smoking the iPhone 6/A8 in many benchmarks.  Although this could be shortlived when Apple goes to 14nm.

The design is so much worse than Xiaomi Mi Note or OPPO R1C or any number of Chinese phones. Just get rid of the logo and home button.

Handycam version. I dunno, the idea of Superman vs Batman seems plain dumb to me. Iron-Man got his ass whipped everytime by Hulk, no matter how mondo his Hulk Buster armor, the comic version of Hulk, like SuperMan, is nigh indestructible and his strength is pretty much unlimited.

In Man of Steel, SuperMan fought multiple indestructable villains, was punched through many incredibly hard objects over incredible distances, how likely is Batman going to 'make him bleed'

I'm betting How It Should Have Ended will do a version where the fight ends in 2 seconds with Batman dead.
The first Batman v Superman trailer arrived a few days before it was set to premiere at a special IMAX event on Monday. And what we get seems to be an all-fronts attack on Superman from the press right on to an eye-glowing, voice-growling Batman.
