Devious Journal EntrySomeone went to my Tumblr and asked me why I wasn't posting on DA! Makes me feel like people here actually care about me posting, and I am bad and forget to a lot. Also, I've been ridiculously busy and preoccupied. When I'm in NYC I tend to drop off the internet... There's so much to do there! But I'm in the process of planning out an adventure to California, which I'm pretty excited about. Specifically working towards traveling over New Years Eve, much like I'll be traveling through Christmas Eve night to Chicago. While part of me finds it sad, a bigger part of me is not only relieved but romanticizing being alone during these times. Generally, I like to be alone for long periods of time anyway, and I love the train... so long trips on the train are great for me. A great time for reflecting.Devious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I'll pick a few to draw, and if you like it, you can Paypal me as much or as little as you wish (just not nothing, please, lol). I expect a lot of replies so I can't promise I'll get to everyone, and it may be very experimental because I'm just trying things out. I don't know how long I'll be doing this. Probably until I'm comfortable with the new equipment (or I hit $451.34, the cost of the 3-year warranty - whichever comes first, hahaha).
I'll send you a note with the art and my PayPal if you are chosen. So please, request away! Happy holidays!
Alternatively, you can ask for one of my characters, and I'll do it for free. Haha...

Recreating the Infected Gametype + Other NewsA new gametype was revealed in the French version of OXM.Recreating the Infected Gametype + Other News1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The Infection gametype in Halo 4 has been renamed to "Flood". Yes, you read that right. From the screenshot provided in the article it appears that infected players will now play as a variant of a partially infected Flood Combat Form.
Flood supports up to 12 players with two playing as Alpha Zombies and the other 10 attempting to survive and not get turned. Infected players will have deadly claws for melee damage and enhanced vision.
The article also revealed that John will be able to fight in the mecha from the Halo 4 trailer.

While it's certainly been fun wreaking six kinds of havoc on the various multiplayer venues (Platinum difficulty, gah!) I'm sure a lot of you are looking forward to new single player content to tackle.
Announced during EA's summer showcase, Leviathan will tell the story of increasing desperation, a quest for vengeance, and will add entirely new avenues of play.
The setup for Leviathan is that humanity is looking for anything and everything to win the war and get Earth back. Admiral Hackett has been running black op missions with the goal of tracking down a mysterious and elusive creature that has been killing Reapers; the Leviathan Of Dis. Vanishing decades ago, no one has been able to come close to locating it again, until a scientist on the Citadel finds a trace that could lead them to the enigmatic dreadnaught, but then --as scientists are w

What's this you say? It's a fan-made trailer? Impossible, not if you sucked the Mass Effect savvy from Bioware itself could you make a more hype-inducing trailer!
Seriously now, MittroBikki is my favorite trailer creator, and has been for a while now. The fact that skill such as his exists in the Mass Effect fandom makes me very proud to be part of it.
I know what I said yesterday; that there would be a trailer. Chris Priestly says " We have encountered some technical stuff that is getting in the way of things. We had hoped it would be up already today, but we'll see. Currently I have no ETA."

Now, there's some really interesting tidbits nestled in here.
At 0:20, you can see to Shepard's left, there's an asari soldier protected within a shield bubble, or more likely a biotic barrier, judging by the color. There doesn't seem to be an emitter, so perhaps it's a support ability like Halo's drop shield?

A few things got me worried when Halo 4 was first announced, first that it's Halo 4 and not made by Bungie. Second is the COD effect in that COD games never change despite the locations and some additional multiplayer addons they never take the risk to re-haul everything, this is something I feared would happen to Halo 4 with 343 trying to prove themselves and basically following in Bungie's shadow not venturing out. BUT, and its a big but... hehe. They have not followed behind Bungie in fact they have tak
