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.

2- Irritated that my FemShep runs like she has a sausage and eggs between her legs even though she's clearly a woman.
3- Annoyed that Shepard is carrying a gun in a cutscene that I didn't equip him with (where did he get it from??).

Things you should never ask an Artist to doI write this to not spark a debate or judgement, only to share my personal opinion and experience in hopes of benefiting you and offering insight to people thinking about hiring an artist.Things you should never ask an Artist to do2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Things you should never ask an Artist to do:
1. Free Work.
Do I really have to explain this one? You wouldn't walk into any other business offering a service and ask for free clothes or a burger right? No, you pay for them without question and they take a lot less creativity, time to make and cost a lot less. Why ask people to work for free on something you couldn't make yourself? If you believe in your vision, then I suggest find funding for it to pay the people doing the work for you. This goes for family as well, don't get me wrong, I love my family and enjoy doing something for them but it means so much more when I OFFER to do something for free than when it's expected. Let the artist decide whether or not they want to give their time for free without asking them, as a rule treat them with res
Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect seriesThis is something I felt compelled to write;Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect series1 year 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

1. Please don't sharpen your talons on the furniture. I've provided a special post for this in the room behind the laundry where you put your weights and gym equipment.
2. I love sushi too, but I prefer it dead before I eat it. I know you love to fish but please don't do this in front of me again. I nearly fainted and you know I've seen some grisly things.
3. I don't need to hear again how your mom use to deep fry things that look like my hamster, and serve them as appetizers.
4. Please don't use my knitting yarn as dental floss. I sent to Palaven for a new supply for you. It will be here in a few days.
5. I get it that casting is a family activity for Turians, but humans are just not with that hairball kind of thing. I love you dearly, but there are some things I can't do with you, so please regurgitate that stuff in private.

I'm not Whisperwings and I can't express what all the comments and heartfelt expressions have meant so much to not only me but my husband and son as well.
Sometimes it's not until someone you love is gone that you realize what a loving, caring & helpful person they were to so many people.
Our family is very close and we know that Alicia was the upbeat heart, the one who always wanted to decorate for the holidays and kept us doing things together even as the kids got into college. She was our glue of fun! Our traditionalist; Tacos for thanksgiving..don't ask it's a long story.
Our thanks go out to all of you who let us know just what Alie has done for you. If is was her attitude about the cancer or something as simple a kind word in reply to your comments on her art. She loved when people commented on her art.
I wanted to let you all know that her book has not been forgotten. I have been going through the notes she has received ab
What's in YOUR Shepard's bathroom?I found this prompt in one of my writing reference books. Basically, in order to get to know a character better, you go into their bathroom and nose through their stuff. SO, here's what you can find in Dakota's:What's in YOUR Shepard's bathroom?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
pumpkin scented shower-gel
mint green mini-rubber ducky that sits on her sink
lavender bar-soap by sink
pastel green toothbrush
pale pink strawberry flavored lip-gloss
eye drops for tired, over-worked eyes
oversized lavender bath towel
pastel green bathrobe
autumn-scented moisturizing cream
pile of laundry
lavender terrycloth bath mat
The ducky was a joke from one of her ME2 squaddies, not sure who, not sure why. Also-bet you can't ever guess what her favorite color is...
And the EA servers are trolling again.

It is with heavy hearts that we must inform you of the passing of our darling daughter, Alie. Her final days were fairly peaceful, sleeping much of the time but also able to watch some of the Winter Olympics and enjoy her favorite event, figure skating. Her final moments were peaceful with both parents by her bedside.
We have all been preparing for this day for the past several weeks, knowing it was coming far faster than we hoped. From the moment in December when the news came of her terminal illness, Alie has continually amazed us with her positive attitude and limitless spirit. We have all learned from her selfless approach to life, her giving nature, and her passion for the possibilities that life hold for all of us She was so thankful for all of the outreach shown to her by her friends and family and we share in that gratitude. Unfortunately she was just too weak to be able to a

Since the newly announced ME3 ending DLC isn't going to be here until summertime, I'm going to need something to tide me over...
Let me break it down for you...
The THEME: Help me erase my ME3 sad panda blues.
Art: Create something that will help me forget how sad I was after ME3. This could be anything. Maybe something dealing with the aftermath of the battle, a victory celebration, some imagined future, could be a scene from a certain fanfic..., or it could be something completely different! It could be a comic strip or a sculpture. As long as it's Mass Effect themed and helps me resolve/forget about my 'ME3 ending' sadness infection.
Bonus points if you use my FemShep and/or Garrus - preferred, but not necessary.
Literature: Come up with a new ME3 ending involving my Shepard. I'm leaving this pretty open, though I will say I would prefer my Shep to not be a dead, also I have been known to frequent the indoctrination th

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!
Just FYI, I picked up the red one
