20. Kavka's PoisonThis is genuinelly, for me, one of the most interesting questions I've ever come across. Normally it's answers that are interesting, not the questions, but this is not only an interesting question but also one of the most interesting things I know of.20. Kavka's Poison1 year ago in Personal More Like This
A thought experiment:
There is an eccentric trillionaire who puts a vial of painful fatal poison in front of you and offers you £1 billion if you agree to drink it. But you don't actually have to drink it now; if you agree then the trillionaire will give you the money, you go away, you come back in one month and you drink the poison then. If at any time during that month you change your mind, fine. You don't have to go through with it and, this is the important bit, you *CAN KEEP THE MONEY*.
In other words, all you have to do to get £1 billion is to say yes you will drink the poison, wait for the cheque to clear, then turn round and say no.
Knowing that this is an option for you, knowi

This story is turning out a lot longer than I intended. Writing from Garrus' point of view is a struggle. Thanks to Lordess-Alicia for her Deviation "Goodnight Shepard" that inspired most of this story. You can see it here: http://lordess-alicia.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=192#/d3hev8m
Note the semi crazed look in Garrus' eye.
More Bed Time Stories, part 2
It was about oh-two hundred hours and I was crouched down, rummaging through the little beer cooler that Joker had tucked away under the mess hall table. I heard the doors of her quarters swish open and there she was. Her lithe form was seductively out of uniform, sheathed in silky black bed clothes with a spotted animal type print that showed the soft curves, yet left everything to the wild imagination.
And there I was…. wearing only my military shorts that bare
Dear Bioware,Some things I need to say to the creators of my favorite game series.Dear Bioware,2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a game. I have no problem whatsoever with there being dark, hopeless, philosophical, deep, or any other type of endings included. But they should not be the only option. If you can have those things, I can have happy, hopeful, fulfilling, victorious endings as well. There is nothing wrong or stupid or inferior about wanting a happy ending.
I am not ashamed to say all I want is an ending where Shepard lives, we win, and I get to live happily ever after with my chosen LI(if they're not Thane or something).
I will not accept that bleak endings are the only legitimate option.
This may vary, but for myself the Mass Effect series has always been about hope. Shepard speaks of nothing but "we can do this together" or for renegades "we will do this no matter the cost". Both of these speak of victory, yet ME3 offers none. No matter which color you pick to end the game with, Shepard lost. There is nothing

If it weren't so fun, I'd be annoyed.Dear Bethesda, makers of Skyrim.If it weren't so fun, I'd be annoyed.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me first thank you for bringing back the Fallout series, for that I am eternally grateful. Also, I'd like to add that I am having lots of fun playing Skyrim, but I do have to wonder about a few things.
There were the obvious things at first, such as why can't my companions ride horses? And what am I going to do with all these cabbages?
But now I have to ask you... why is this mountain goat stuck to the back of my horse? And why, when I'm riding, does my horse ride straight up a tree and then we fall from the top of it and hurt ourselves? Why does the skeleton corpse of the first dragon I slew constantly spawn on my head while leaving Whiterun?
I also wonder why see so many animals struggling to swim upstream in swiftly moving water. Of course I have to put them out of their misery... with fire of course. But Bethesda, why is that animal still on fire as it floats away? And when it bumps up against the river bank, how does it then set a deer on fire,
Mass Effect 4 is coming, Omega DLC is confirmedBefore we get into it, I'd like to preface this with the sad fact that both of Bioware's co-founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuck have retired from the company.Mass Effect 4 is coming, Omega DLC is confirmed1 year ago in Personal More Like This
On the marginally plus side, I won't have to be constantly double-checking my blogs to make sure I got their names right.

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.

Happy Birthday to my Emmyboo <3So today was Emmy's birthday, so she got puppy cupcakes and a new toy dragon from me. Now, I always say the problem with Emmy is that she's too smart for her own good. I can literally tell this puppy to find a ball and she will bring me her ball, or find the baby and she'll bring me her snowpuppy that she's slept with since she was a baby (it also works with the pumpkin, Christmas tree, and lamb toys she has). So since she got a dragon for her birthday, we were playing with it quite a bit, and since I'm a good mommy, I decide that new toy means time to learn a new command, and smart dog that I have, she picks it up in about two seconds.Happy Birthday to my Emmyboo <32 years ago in Personal More Like This

Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect seriesThis is something I felt compelled to write;Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect series9 months ago in Personal More Like This
both as a gamer and the influences that helped shape me as a developer.
Almost a year from when I touched my last save file, I finally "finished" the Mass Effect series. I played all the DLC and I beat the game, one last time. It was a somber ending, because it put a final end to a character I have played since 2007. I have games that I love, games stretching back to my childhood, and games that I would consider myself to be a huge fan of. I can count on one hand though (and not using all my fingers), franchises that have sucked me in and crafted characters that made me care about them in such a way, that turns this 6'5 developer into your everyday excitable fan (not Justin Beiber level though, that'd be just plain crazy). The Mass Effect series is one of those few titles.
I have looked up to Bioware for many years. Combined with my love for Point & Click advent

Rule 34My latest little pony-themed comics have brought up some more questions about whether I'll ever do Rule 34s on these things. Well, no. I haven't fully analyzed the reason why I have an aversion to Rule 34 things in general. The more I know about a particular cartoon, either from the past or from a present following, the more of an "eh" reaction I have to fan-made adult images I run across. What I feel when I see it isn't dissimilar to seeing a celebrity's face photoshopped onto a nude body. No matter how well done it may be, there's a level of "I just know too well how fake this is" involved. This may seem surprising, since the jests that I draw are sometimes of an "after 9pm" subject. But these are just purely playing on embellishments of character, rather than a desire to elaborate on a cartoon character's personal sexual motions (or their genitals). I suppose as close as I've come was the human version of Zecora, which, while a nude, wasn't very explicit or sexual. It didn't show muRule 342 years ago in Personal More Like This

GAAM: DAT STARTING LINE! Aaannnnd GO!!!Okay now that I have more of the details worked out. Here’s what’s up everyone. Like I said in the last journal sorry for being a bit on the inactive side but a lot has happened. I feel like I had one of those weird full circle moments where events that happened to me in life that I continually questioned actually make sense and come together perfectly like puzzle pieces that were never missing in the first place. A lot of doubts and negative thoughts I had against myself seem pretty meaningless now. Things in my life are starting to look a lot clearer and a lot brighter and I have the last 3 months up till now including negative and positive people to thank for a lot of that. And hopefully this will be inspiration for anyone who reads this to never give up even if it means taking an alternate route that you didn’t plan.GAAM: DAT STARTING LINE!

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.

I know some of you have expressed concern that the video will just encourage copycats. Well, after over two years of posting online I have learned a few things. First, imitation and copying is inevitable. It sucks but it IS going to happen at some point if your work becomes popular enough. I do have copycats, and I do keep an eye on them. I can't really do much about them, unless they blatantly copy a design. So I've learned to live with it. I appear to have a very protective fanbase, as I am constantly alerted by you good people when anyone might be copying me. I like to think that most people can figure out

A: I hope you're not expecting anything grandiose and full of griffons. No? Ah well it is not something as romantic as the fabricated tale of my parents, much more depressing I'm afraid. This misadventure began and ended when my clansmate, Tamlen, decided we explore some ruins these humans we scared off had raved about. It seemed harmless enough. This 'demon' they warned us about, I thought, might have just been another hallucination their ignorance made possible. Tamlen also needed something to cover his ass for getting in trouble with the Keeper after we brawled. I know she cut him some slack for his sad attempt at flirtation, we all knew, but long story short it was there we encountered the Eluvian. That moment I'll always remember as one of my greatest failures...curiosity got the better of him

It’s time for the holidays, and for many, that means gifts! But gifts can mean different things to different people: what makes a gift worth giving? Is it about the spirit of the gift or the value of the item?
Art: Take the theme of gifts and show us a moment related to the gift. For instance, the submission can show someone acquiring a gift, the moment of giving the gift, or even what happens after the gift is given. You can draw any scene (or comic) so long as the gift is shown in the image: but make sure the gift is identifiable. No restrictions on what the gift may be either. Is it an item, an idea, or something else? If it may be given, it is fair game – so be creative!
