The disdain for Square-Enix’s first next-gen entry into the FINAL FANTASY franchise is fairly obvious, especially amongst die-hard FINAL FANTASY fans, which is why it has always baffled me that the company continues to keep pushing FINAL FANTASY XIII onto the public. First there was a sequel nobody wanted (which was actually pretty damn good, more than it had any right to be), then a tie-in to the stellar FINAL FANTASY XIV through in-game events. Square is trying hard to get the public to like Lightning as much as they do and their latest attempt is a third entry in the saga, Lightning Returns: FINAL FANTASY XIII, starring the aforementioned heroine and no one else.
With the release of Lightning Returns drawing near, Square-Enix has put out a video recapping the story so far in a retro style that harkens back to the series’ glory days on the Super Nintendo. Hit the jump to check it out.
The Captain America movies have both had stellar marketing campaigns so far, and while these three character posters for Captain America: The Winter Soldier aren’t the most artistic anyone has ever seen they still look quite nice. Hit the jump to see the new international posters.
I have to admit, I have been so uneasy about Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ever since its announcement. The man didn’t do much to ease our terror either, with early announcements naming the film as simply Ninja Turtles and altering their origin to be space aliens that happen to look like turtles. Bay himself was quick to reign in these concepts after the fan backlash and the film went back into quiet pre-production. Now we have a better look at what to expect when the film drops this year, and I’m guardedly optimistic. Hit the jump to check out some photos.
Man, I don’t know how I missed these at NYCC this year but color me depressed that I did. Artist Phillip Sevy takes arguably the two most famous families in comics, the Bat-family and the X-Men, and lets them get their hipster on in two of his latest pieces, complete with Instagram filter.

It’s become quite common for DC Comics to pull an existing storyline of their comics for each of their animated features, and their latest is no exception. Today we have the trailer for Son of Batman, which inspiration from the first book in Grant Morrison’s Batman saga, “Batman and Son.” But something is just a bit off, and it could spell out some very bad news for future DC animated features.

This is a perfect example of “things I had no idea I wanted until they were handed to me.” Those of you who have seen Frozen (and really, if you haven’t, stop reading this blog and go see it in a second run theater right now. Easily the best Disney film in a decade) have probably heard Elsa’s ballad “Let It Go” dozens of times in every single medium you can find, but I doubt you’ve seen it performed by Mr. Freeze from the atrocious Batman and Robin.
