What Has Happened...So going off of a question from a friend on one of my journals, you all have to look at the bases of all that's happened. Not everyone agrees with me, but there are still hundreds if not thousands of people who support this. It was Admin discriminating against sexual art and its artists and bullying so many of my friends who had had their artwork stolen from them or been bullied by another user, that got me mad! But did admin do anything about that?! No! They let that madness go on and on, and close friends of mine who couldn't see anyway out but to deactivate their accounts did so!:iconNerdymom: was bullied into deactivation! :iconuserdomainerror: had her art stolen and eventually she deactivated her account! :iconCassandraSaturn: was bullied again and again and ADMIN suspended her and eventually her account was deactivated! Admin has let all of this happen, but if we post sexual material, then we go to far? How is that right?

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.

3- Annoyed that Shepard is carrying a gun in a cutscene that I didn't equip him with (where did he get it from??).
4- Irritated that the piece of armor that would give me great stats is just plain ugly and would ruin my outfit.
5- Irritated that wearing a helmet would increase my stats but I refuse to wear it because I then can't see my Shepard speak.

Mass Effect 3 Mercer ModFor those of you that STILL don't know why I've not been doing anything productive recently it's because I've been working on a mod for ME3 that replaces Kaidan Alenko with Alex Mercer.Mass Effect 3 Mercer Mod7 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is starting to feel like an important thing… so I gave it it’s own tag on my tumblr blog #ME3MercerMod
Check out the progression of the mod there.
I’m attempting to make a link to said tag on my blog… it appears that tumblr needs time to figure this shit out.
in the meantime I had a small realization while working out bits and pieces of the mod…
because of the stupidly inefficient way ME3’s PCC system works, Kaiden’s armor retexture available in the N7 Collector’s edition/Digital Deluxe Edition etc. is actually a completely separate mesh along with the retexture. What does this mean? It means I can replace it with a whole new mesh and set of textures… and I FUCKING D
Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect seriesThis is something I felt compelled to write;Bioware and the end of the Mass Effect series2 years 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
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.

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...

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.

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

If he signs this, your internet provider will be forced to police your activity, and report everything you DO online! there would be NO anonymous browsing, no "incognito" modes, no torrenting, no file sharing, NOTHING! Fanfictions, Fanarts, Fanvideos, ANYTHING thought to breach ANY kind of copyright, even in a completely harmless way would be reported! And After Three strikes, you will be sentenced.
You thought SOPA was bad? That is nothing compared to the TPP.
My gosh, what has happened to the world, to America! Land of the free more like land of the imprisoned.

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.

9 Citadel 2183-1 The memoirs of Garrus VakarianCitadel Tower 2183-1. Palin was always an idiot (and a criminal, though I didn't know it at the time.) It was another useless conversation with my boss, another horrid day when my work got stalled by red tape, stupidity and a general lack of insight by my superiors. A small group of humans approached and Palin stalked off. I saw them in my peripheral vision. Three: a male and two females. I turned, I recognized the one in front, because everybody knows that face from the vids, the savior of Elysium: Commander Jane Shepard, XO of the Normandy. She's a larger than life figure and I expected that she would be larger than life… taller, heavier, more… like a male. She's average height, svelte and much more beautiful than her holo-pictures. Our eyes locked, for just an instant.9 Citadel 2183-1 The memoirs of Garrus Vakarian3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Both are true. Lately, i've fallen in love with this show called "Battle for dream island" Seriously. Watch it. It's a short series on Youtube that's a lot like Total drama island- except, replace all the characters with talking objects and you've got the idea. I literally went on a archive binge yesterday, it is so amazing. Anywhay, I came across this video while I was snooping around Jacknjellify's youtube:
My mouth literally dropped. This guy, this guy right here- he did it. He accomplished what I always wanted to do (make a cartoon series), and even became famous!!
And you know why?
He didn't give up.
Back around the same time this came out, I also had a little comic book series. Okay, not little- I'd finished writing and drawing 26 episodes
