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...

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 Shepard3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod...Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:
You can also check how the mod works here on youtube:

For the RPG-element enthusiasts, we have the Customization trailer:
We also have another showcase of Mass Effect 3's new and improved combat.
We have an trailer for the Story and Choice/Consequences mechanics. Note; there is a bunch of new footage, but mostly just cool new battle clips and a very short excerpt from a mission that shows the different outcomes of a mid-mission choice.
And lastly we have the Enemies Trailer. This is the special trailer for two reasons. One; it finally shows gives a first look at one of ME3's main antagonists, and secondly; it shows more Female Shepard. (And that Kaidan bloke, too.)
But stay tuned; David Silverman is saying the Female Shepard Trailer will finally be releas

For those of you who would like to pay their respects to the departing minds which have supporting Bioware through the years with their own thank yous and other supportive messages... do not go to the Bioware Social Network. Really, go anywhere but there. The Dragon Age forums are busy talking about Dragon Age 3 and discussing how terribly they are suffering, and the Mass Effect forums are busy talking about Mass Effect 4... and how terribly they are suffering.

Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on HalloweenArt By :iconraggedy-annedroid:Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on Halloween2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it is Halloween. I am a cosplayer. Here it is, the greatest of all dress up holidays! And I am always disappointed. Here are the top 5 reasons it sucks to be a cosplayer at Halloween.
1) Friends (including friends of friends) come out of nowhere to ask for costumes. They just ask for a little help. On their giant full body armor masterpiece. The week before Halloween. Because you know, you make costumes and it's easy for you. And the price? Well, it's "for a friend" price. Which is always "free" or "I'll pay you $20 never" which boils down to "get you a shot of Jack sometime." Sadface.
2) Costumes in my closet everywhere, but none for Halloween. Yes, I have over 60 costumes. No, none of them will ever be recognized at a Halloween party. One year I dressed as Pris from Blade Runner out on the town, which I thought would b

Silly coincidencesOk, this is quite silly, but I wanted to share it.Silly coincidences3 years ago in Personal More Like This
One of our local pizzerias has a promo until next Thrusday: if you buy a pizza menu, you get an Angry bird plushie. My boyfriend is quite fond of Angry Birds so he suggested to eat there. And poor guy is starting a new diet on Monday, so... why not?
There we went, we ordered the pizza, we ordered our drinks and when we asked for the plushie, the girl at the desk asked us which one we wanted. "Which ones do you have", I asked. "Let me check", she said before leaving. She came back in a minute and informs us "We have the blue one, the green one and the red one".
I was so tempted to check for hidden cameras... but hey, coincidences happen!

talent follow upso after a great many debates, here is what i am seeing.talent follow up2 years ago in Personal More Like This
there are 4 types of people responding.
1. the hard working artist agrees, they understand the time they have put into it, and in turn they are seeing the improvement they desire. they study the right things, like life, to understand how things work. they fight being completely self indulgent 100% of the time so they can better learn the skills they need.
2. the casual artist who doesnt really agree because they see somebody better, they are happy with what they can do and know they can be better, but they compare themselves to others too often.
3. the lazy fuck that thinks they must not be talented because they dont put in much time. and since they are so frustrated with seeing how great others are, they must not be talented while the other person is.
4. the people who see some little kid copy a drawing and imagine that they must be some kind of naturally born incredible artist. most of these people arent much beyond a part time
Bioware Executives Address ME3 Ending Honestly, there are spoilers here. If you haven't finished ME3 yet, what in the heck are you still doing here?!Bioware Executives Address ME3 Ending3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Alright, I've finally landed enough time on other computer. My other computer completely died on me. I'm entirely out of date when it comes to Mass Effect news. Or anything on the internet for that matter.
Like it or not, Mass Effect 3 has shipped something on the lines of three and a half million units, which has in turn generated a historic fan response.
It's ranged from a bevy of online petitions such as ones for Joker romance, better Thane romance, blerbla blah character petition, and --the meat of the matter-- the "different ending" petitions.
Nevermind what your opinion of it might be, the "Take Back Mass Effect 3" movement has generated a sizable donation for the Child's Play charity --over $29,000-- which is great whatever way you slice it. This donation drive is meant make Bioware take the movement seriously.
And Bioware has responded.
The Leviathan and the Death of HopeWarning: contains spoilers concerning the Leviathan DLC, Mass Effect 3 and my notions about what good writing is. Duh.The Leviathan and the Death of Hope2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are moments when I wish I could just turn off my writer's sense at a whim and "just go with it". Ignore that a story in a game, or a movie, or a book, or a TV show is flawed in my opinion, just to enjoy the views, get an adrenaline rush from all the flashing colors and have fun. And truth be told - it usually works that way... Just not for the universes I tend to care about. If you got me invested in your franchise, I will expect you to deliver the goods. 'Tis how the cookie crumbles.
Which brings me to the Leviathan DLC. I've seen a lot of positive reviews and emotions towards it popping up all over the internet before I was even able to check it out myself. My hopes were high, and, initially, I loved it. It had a sense of exploration Mass Effect 3 was seriously lacking and the TGES Mining Base really reminded me of Noveria... It was spot on.

A Spotlight for the CosplayersGame-Art-HQ stands mainly for drawn art, but cosplay is a part of the video game fans community, a part of deviantART and a part of GAHQ as well.A Spotlight for the Cosplayers2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today i want to feature some of the cosplayers here which put not only a lot of work into the costumes they made, they also had the right photographer and in some cases completely fitting environments for their cosplays as well. Most cosplay articles are mostly about the sexy looking female cosplayers, i hope to arrange a nice mix here instead with a different focus.
I think the term Cosplay-Art is only fair for the upcoming photos:
Edward Conway, the protagonist of the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV, cosplayed by Rick Boer from the Netherlands. His earlier MGS cosplays are damn epic.

They look like tiny versions of dinosaur ancestors who have survived into our age, like sharks and crocodiles, but actually they are of a separate evolution and not related. They have scary devil–mask faces, many even sporting horns—but actually, most species are quite human–friendly and can make affectionate pets.
Their endless variations in skin coloring and tattoo–like designs are what draw the artists’ and photographers’ eyes. The chameleons even “change clothes” all day long, wanting to always be wearing the appropriate colors for the “room” they find themselves in.
