Beyond the Extended Cut... I will reignite.And so the end creeped upon us. With the Extended Cut behind me I can finally say that I've seen the full extent of how BioWare wanted to end the Mass Effect trilogy... And I disliked it. Don't get me wrong, the Extended Cut is a vast improvement over the vanilla endings and I think that everyone should check it out - but it is still the same unfitting ending, it is still something taken out from another story and sewn onto Mass Effect's glistening skin, with it still kicking and screaming (yes, this is just a personal opinion and no, I am not bitter about that - I just dislike how it ended). The themes that made Mass Effect so great are still either nowhere to be found, or twisted around to present a vision I just cannot accept as something that belongs there. My fanface is itching, my writer sense tingling... Not the way I want to end one of the greatest sci-fi experiences of my nerdy little life.Beyond the Extended Cut...

There will be no extended cuts to the Extended Cut. Either you love the current finale,
What Future Brings - the Beacon of Hope.This has been a wild, wild week for me. Never before have I juggled so many things at one time, between work, private life and the stuff I will write about in a second. First things first, let me get the single most anticipated question out of the way, so as not to keep you in further suspense - the next episode of "Marauder Shields" will be up on Wednesday, 16th of May, which basically means that I am skipping a single episode this week. Believe me, the decision didn't come easy, but it was either that or turning in a half-done, cut-up episode, which wouldn't do Zaeed any justice, nor would it present Emily Wong's legacy in the light it deserves. But let's not get even further into spoilerish territory right now.What Future Brings - the Beacon of Hope.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For the past week I've been busy like a bee, flying around frantically, organizing bits of stuff I know extremely well and large pockets of stuff I've never even touched before... But knowing that it will be worth it in the end. Allow me to wear my Renegade face for the rest
Character Feature: Shyla ShepardThe seemingly indomitable Shyla Shepard has lived a harsh and tragic past. After losing her family at sixteen to a bloody Batarian pirate attack on an Alliance colony, the young fighter joined the Alliance military only to lose her entire squad in a deadly thresher maw attack. In the years since, these early scars have forged a new identity out of the shattered ruins of the child whose family died on Mindoir. Known for her “tough but fair” approach, Shepard’s fight against the geth incursion broke new grounds for humanity when she became the first human Spectre on the galactic Council’s elite forces. But recent rumors have put in question Shepard’s loyalty to the Alliance forces. Our investigator setup an exclusive interview to delve into the truth behind the legend.Character Feature: Shyla Shepard4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Episode 25 will be published tomorrow - on Friday 15th. Once episode 25 is published I'll start preparing for the next one as soon as possible, to get back on the horse and start gaining up on our schedule. I'll also make an effort to get a new journal entry here every week (starting with a special "frequently asked questions" piece a few days from now), to get you informed on everything that's happening in the Marauder Shields world... And that's a lot. From the first interview ever and more official words of support from BioWare and the original ME cast (I love you, guys!), to Comic Con plans and getting new incredible talent on board... It's been a brilliant three weeks.
On a side note, while I'm writing this, the comics have been viewed 981,074 times already. Which means that we're nearing a big event for this series, a

Remember that Earth DLC pack I talked about a few weeks back? http://masseffectclub.deviantart.com/journal/Mass-Effect-3-Extended-Cut-DLC-information-leaked-307726439
Well, that's completely accurate.
Coming next Tuesday, on the 17th (for North America at the very least) will be the Earth Multiplayer Expansion. Featuring new characters, male and female, for each of the six classes, three devastating new weapons, three new maps and a new Platinum difficulty level for the Krysae people to sink their kill-stealing mitts into.

“Sometimes we lay aside our own troubles when we wipe away another's tears.”
Is no longer alone
his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.
