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 Mod1 year 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

Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod...Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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:
You can also check how the mod works here on youtube:

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??).
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.
6- Upset at having to kill defenseless pyjaks to get a discount from the Krogan store.
7- Irritated that to play Mass Effect 1 again I would have to sit through all that pointless driving around in the goddamn Mako.
8- Annoyed that Jack won't get together with my FemShep even though I thought for sure she'd be the one female in the game that would.
9- Annoyed at Liara for giving me fifty c

From the Personal Memoirs of Garrus Vakarian.
It was one of those conversations that I wish, in retrospect that I had never really started. Jane didn’t like me bringing it up and I didn’t really like finding out something that I had always suspected. It ended well, but not because I won the ... argument.
It began innocently; she was washing a teacup at the kitchen sink. I came up behind her and nuzzled her neck. She squirmed away, skipped over to the kitchen door and with a lascivious smile beckoned me into the yard with her index finger.
“If you want it, catch me if you can.” Jane said and sauntered away out into the yard.
I’d been lead on this merry chase many times before; all through the house and half the yard. The last time, we ended up making love on the potting ta
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 confirmed3 years 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.
To read both of their personally written farewell letters, please go to here http://blog.bioware.com/2012/09/18/from-ray-muzyka/ for Ray's, and here http://blog.bioware.com/2012/09/18/from-greg-zeschuk/ for Greg's
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.

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

The day has arrived, and users are now able to download the ThaneMOD from nexusmods , and moddb . *Remember: the Installation Guide included with all packages is your friend.* There is yet one more surprise....Ottemis, one of the original creators of the Thane inspired Hoodie, has graciously extended her Texture library by creating brand new (and exclusive for the ThaneMOD) Thane-centric HR Hoodies. These are available for BOTH genders. Currently they are being offered through the nexusmod site, along side of the ThaneMOD. We will eventually include them directly with the "packages", in our next version release. Thank you for this wonderful addition.

The Fanfiction Author's Guide to KepralsThe Fanfiction Authors Guide to Kepral's SyndromeThe Fanfiction Author's Guide to Keprals2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We all know what Kepral's is, right? A terminal illness that affects the drell. When we meet Thane we find out within a couple of lines that he is dying. Naturally, we want to know more, so we go and ask him. Thane explains what Kepral's is. Sort of.
Then we skip to LotSB. We find out more about Thane's condition from the dossier, along with a hint at a possible treatment, and the fact that Thane refused it.
ME3 arrives, and this time we meet Thane in hospital. His illness has progressed, and this time almost all available dialogue is related to Kepral's. Does this help us to understand exactly what Kepral's is? No. Instead we are presented with new, conflicting, information. Add to this Thane's death, and we are left with a fragmented, incomplete, picture.
My aim is to take these pieces, and put them together in a way that is useful for fanfic writers. I'm also hoping to offer some ways of tr

I took care of buisness, did what I had to do, and now i am return. It's been so long that I don't even know if I can draw anymore. For the last few months i've been deeply involved in the gamergate scandal/movement/internet war thing. Yes, it's still going on 5 months later, which may as well be centuries in internet time. It's been exhausting and pointless. The whole thing is more or less about SJWs fighting against people who want better "ethics in gaming journalism". In other words, something stupid. I don't even play video games.
I quit a few days ago when I realized what a massive waste of time it'd been. This last week was spent tying up loose ends, saying goodbyes and burning bridges. I spent three months trying to get them to actually do something that mattered, but the entire movement completely collapsed in on itself and turned into an even less effective version of Occupy Wall Street.

Because it didn't have any of that. Mass Effect 4 is still "years out" according to sources.
