Shepard POV Letter CampaignUpdate: For those who missed the first run or would like to send another letter, there is going to be a second wave set for the send date of May 22, for anyone interested.Shepard POV Letter Campaign3 years ago in Personal More Like This
A new letter campaign directed towards BioWare is being put together by one of our Facebook Retake members, and it is called the Shepard POV Letter Campaign. This might especially be of interest to our fiction writers, but really, anyone who has their own Shepard(s) can have some fun with this!
There is no set mailing date at the moment (I will update this when there is), but it will be sometime in the week after April 29, so use this time to get your letter ready if this is something you're interested in.
Edit: The send date has been announced as May 2.
I'll let the campaign's description speak for itself. Here is the original page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Shepard-POV-Letter-Campaign-Retake-ME3/345657908824848

Aside from the whole "female Shepard" thing, this trailer is really showcasing the increased cinematic quality in ME3. Like the Uncharted games, to name an example.

Just go watch it.
And watch it again.
And how about a third time?
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."
In the mean time, go watch that trailer again.

Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on HalloweenArt By :iconraggedy-annedroid:Why It Sucks To Be a Cosplayer on Halloween3 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

DRM, Spammers, SYAC is BackXbox720's potential DRM?DRM, Spammers, SYAC is Back2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Microsoft's lead creative director Adam Orth got angry over the backlash always online DRM has gotten lately (thanks in no small part to Sim City and Diablo III), and decided to take his frustrations to twitter. Orth made a plethora of sarcastic remarks, insulting people's place of residence, and mocking anyone not rich enough to always have an internet connection. By doing so, not only did he make himself look like an ass, he may have inadvertently revealed that the upcoming XBOX 720 may include always online DRM. Nice...

Abusive Artist Relationships [Are you in one?]Ask yourself these following questions to see if you are in an abusive relationship with an artist you watch on Deviantart/Tumblr/Whatever!Abusive Artist Relationships [Are you in one?]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Do you dread checking your messages on a daily basis knowing you may see a journal about them which contains some form of verbal bashing that is indirectly pointed towards you? (i.e. "Fuck all you guys")
2. Do you worry yourself sick when they post short journals saying about how they're sick of life with the subtle indication they may be considering suicide? (i.e. "fuck this I'm so done." "i can't do this anymore" "bye.")
3. Do you find yourself responding to each of these trying to comfort them only to be completely unacknowledged?
4. Do they constantly post vents with suicidal hints with disabled comments?
5. Do they respond to what you have to say shortly and curtly without any consideration for your feelings? "whatever" or "why should I care what you say lol"

Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.

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.

The 9 Problems with BEAUTY AND THE BEASTLet me start by saying: Beauty and the Beast is my favorite film of all time.The 9 Problems with BEAUTY AND THE BEAST3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But there've always been things that have crossed my mind as being... "not quite right."
I'm not complaining about the film, only asking the obvious question of: how is this possible?
1. The vanishing king and queen!
Lumiere says in "Be Our Guest" that for... "Ten years we;ve been rusting..." So where are the Prince's parents? To BE a prince it implies you HAVE parents (a King and Queen) but at the end of the movie, during the movie, and at the beginning of the movie there is no sign of his parents.
2. The Prince is Uncharacteristic!
At the beginning of the movie it shows the Prince at the castle door turning the beggar woman away...but isn't the Prince in a household FULL of servants? Why didn't one of them answer the castle door that night? If the intro is correct at the Prince's behavior, being "spoiled, selfish, and unkind" why would the Prince take time out of his day to answe

What is considered copyright infringement?Due to the growing concern...I have had a lot of people ask me what is considered piracy and what isn't. Things to consider is the Millenium Copy Right act and fair use laws. Funny enough a while back I would have liked a law like SOPA because it would hold a site liable for letting its users plagiarize my artwork. E.g a while back a group on Facebook took my work and refused to credit me, I contacted Facebook and they said they would remove the work, then the admins of the page said they would change it to a private setting so I couldn't access the site and see if my work was still being used without my permission. SOPA would have been useful but now I see that with such power as to hold an entire site liable for a bunch of users actions is dangerous because it can be abused. Also how would you feel if someone like me closed down a huge public web site because a few where taking something of mine? I have learned not to care when my stuff is uploaded elsewhere and shared.

Inspired ArtI once thought that you should "paint what you know". Each artist has a unique background from which we can draw from. This is a sure way to create art with authentic detail and intimacy. In theory this is great and sometimes true, but more often than not it leads to boring and uninspired work. To simply paint what you know, is far too limiting!Inspired Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now I am of the opinion that you should create the art that you would like to see. The real thrill is in exploring these new horizons, and blazing your own trail. For me, this is vital to the enjoyment of being an artist. Allow your art to surprise you, and let inspiration be your guide.

Mass Effect: The End of an Era (SPOILERS)SPOILERS!!!Mass Effect: The End of an Era (SPOILERS)3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So this is the end of Mass Effect. Not just of the last game, but of the trilogy as a whole. Right now, I am of two minds. I am not wholly satisfied with the so called Extended Cut but at the same time it has some redeeming qualities to it that I can not, in good conscience, ignore:
It provides closure: For those who wanted to see what happened to the characters they came to love and the galaxy as a whole.
Injected some measure of reasoning to the actions/words of the God Child: They showed more of the logic behind the Reapers actions and how the Catalyst works.
There is something for everyone: The endings appear to be based on fan input/outcry.
The filled in some of the plot holes and contradictions: Not all of them, but by lessing the impact of the Catalyst, it showed that the damage was reversible.
It brings back some elements of classic science fiction.
Yet, two facts remain. One, the underlying logic behind the God Child is still flawed, although the designers lampsahe
Thoughts on the ME3 Ending DLC *SPOILER-FILLED*Yesterday I downloaded and played through the ending DLC.

It was in response to someone on the Bioware forums posting a link to a Youtube video of the Renegade control ending (which I hadn't seen before) that this outpouring finally erupted, so please view the beginning in that light.
*shivers* I already thought control was creepy. Even as a paragon, I can't help but see Shepard as, in tens of thousands of years, becoming essentially the next starchild. There's enough humanity left in her to go mad with that kind of power, that immortality. Paragon or renegade, you're still setting your Shepard up not as a figure of hope and cooperation, or of strength and leadership, but as a hopefully benevolent god with cont
