And Legion, too, don't think I missed him.
Also, the Orbital Bombardment Designator has made another appearance.
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.

Requests can be made, within reason, for certain scenes to be rendered (a scene from a piece of fan-fiction, for example) and will be completely free. However, the models themselves will not be uploaded in any format. Requests for any model from the game to be rendered in any pose from either game will be completed as soon as possible, bearing in mind that human heads can't be done.

Custom Shepards, be aware!For those of you who may have played the demo already and have recreated your Shepard's appearance, this news is moot. But for those of you still waiting either for Valentines Day, or for March, when the game comes out, this should interest you if you have a Shepard with a custom face.Custom Shepards, be aware!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I have a sneaky suspicion that one or two of you might.
Your characters will look different to varying degrees when you import them into ME3. For some, this change was for the worse, and for others it was either for the better or just fine. They were kind enough to post some pictures for an example.

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

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:

ME3 reaction -spoilers!- and stuffHello everyone!ME3 reaction -spoilers!- and stuff3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been checking the site since I finished (? Can I say that?) Mass Effect3 last Tuesday and I'm sorry I haven't answered many comments yet, but I was somewhere along stage 1-2 of http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comics/critical-miss/9476-Mass-Effect-3-The-Process. But yesterday I landed on stage 3 and I've been lurking the BSN trying to avoid stage 4 and go directly to stage 5.
My usual reaction after playing any Bioware game is replaying it again. But the most I've been able to do with ME3 was to check the net, see what I did wrong and replay the end. In my case, I had not enough EMS to get the 'end' I wanted, so I made up my mind to play the MP. Man, I'm never going there again. Don't get me wrong, nothing bad happened, but I just don't like it. I felt the same way when I played PVP in WoW for the seasonal achivements. Useless. So no MP for me and sorry guys, if I landed in any of your fights.
About the game. It's perfect. Almost anything I could have
Thoughts on the ME3 Ending DLC *SPOILER-FILLED*Yesterday I downloaded and played through the ending DLC. While I could only offer a few flailing and inarticulate meeps of protest to my boyfriend after finishing it, a day of gathering my thoughts and seeing other people's reactions on various forums has allowed me to put them down in words.Thoughts on the ME3 Ending DLC *SPOILER-FILLED*3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

The #165 XNALara/XPS release
4 years ago 20. Feb. 2009, XNALara version 1.0 was born,
developed by :icondusanpavlicek:, the original creator of XNALara.
Now, 164 versions later http://xnalara.home-forum.com/t170-xnalara-xna-posing-studio-latest-version , XNALara/XPS 10.9.5 will support Speech Bubbles
I know it would be a lot of work, with a new menu needed, etc - so I don't hold my breath ! But it would beat having to save each image and load them into a tool like Photoshop or Movie-maker to add the subtitles...
... We love a XPS that would give more support to story-tellers. You too? ...

1. Don't stop to help out any harmless-looking half-naked dudes randomly wandering the wilderness.
2. Don't do that.
3. Seriously, why did you fall for such an obvious trap, Alicia?
I was being my cool, heroic self when I happened to notice a group of half-naked guys. Obviously, I was...concerned...for the gentlemen, as they were fist-fighting a very mean-looking Bristleback...without any shirts on or anything. So, I says to Arvak, "Hey Arvak, let's pull over and give those nice gentlemen a hand. I do not have anything else in mind. Of course. I mean, if they choose to thank me in whatever manner they wish afterwards, that is totally fine with me. You know. I would never have any other motivations for this whatsoever. Definitely. Yes. Let us go to them."
It was like the sirens from the legends, and I crashed my ship right into the rocks of doom.
Except instead of rocks, they were bear teeth.
Also, instead of a ship, it was my body.

As you can see from the recruiting poster, there is a basic uniform design but you can customize it - as I have - for the various characters I have drawn.
Even the 4 Devas have their very own version of a Nudist Beach uniform so there really aren't any limits except that you can't technically be wearing clothes - you can only wear accessories such as hats, belts, straps, s

I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I honked again. Since this was going to be my last ride of my shift I thought about just driving away, but instead I put the car in park and walked up to the door and knocked.. 'Just a minute', answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.
After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90's stood before me. She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940's movie.
By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets.
There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. In the corner was a cardboard
box filled with photos and glassware.
'Would you carry my bag out to the car?' she said. I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.

You cannot understand how happy I am to see this exists! I saw this on a pride page, and freaked. Although I strictly consider myself female in both gender and sex, I recognize and support those who don't. People don't understand that there a people who are male, people who are female, and people who are every possibility in between. I understand. However, I can't pretend to understand some of the prejudice some people face because of their gender identity, but I want them to know, I support them. If you ever need to talk, message me. I'm always open, and always willing to help. Just remember; stay strong, and stay beautiful, my little lovelies.

in questa release "ancora in fase di beta test" ci propone un effetto aggiuntivo: il BLOOM EFFECT
Chi si intende un pň di queste cose sa di cosa parlo..
si tratta comunque di un effetto post processing per dare un effetto particolare alle nostre immagini spesso presente nei videogiochi.
Essendo una versione ancora in fase di test potrebbe avere dei bug vi spiego cosa FARE e NON FARE:
- estrarre il rar di XPS
- lanciare XPS e caricare un modello
- andare sotto la voce OPTIONS- POST PROCESSING
- impostare il BLOOM sui valori predefiniti BLURRY, SOFT ecc.. oppure manualmente settando la voce USER
- salvate le vostre immagini
- le scene salvate memorizzano anche le impostazioni del bloom

Alright, my unstable and insatiable journal minions,
There is a lot of controversy on this particular subject; especially in the U.S. Marine Corps right now. Considering this is the United States; most countries on the outside would think that it is odd women do not have more full, "hands-on-guns", combative roles. In the U.S. Marine Corps, as well as the Special Operations Forces subunits, it is becoming increasingly agitating for some people to see women's rights being shoved down their throats by the forces of idiot Top Brass.
Argumentatively, I think there are better countries out there to fight with, in regards to who they let fight and what they fight with. All in all, it's not what they fight with. Air Forces and Navies, alike, rely on machines and computers to get the job done. The Armies of today mostly rely on logistics and "intelligence" assets (old
