Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod...Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod1 year 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. 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.

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.

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.

Anyway, I'm fairly certain ninety percent of you were in the camp of disliking the endings to a supreme extent and wish for an alternative.
I know this has been said before, but you're getting it.
The details released are as follows.
The Mass Effect Extended Cut DLC will feature new dialogue, cinematics and epilogue scenes that will expound upon the game's different endings, which will be working to satisfy issues people have with them cirrently. It will be available for free on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC from its release this summer up until April of 2014.
This was agreed upon as the ideal compromise to appease the fans dissatisfied with the end of Mass Effect 3 while still retaining the artistic integrity of the product the team worked so hard on.

"The Extended Cut DLC will expand upon the events at the end of Mass Effect 3 through additional cinematic sequences and epilogue scenes” and will “include deeper insight to Commander Shepard’s journey based on player choices during the war against the Reapers... blah blah blah everything we know already.”
I hope you have a somewhat good internet connection because this baby weighs in at 1.9 GB for the whole download.
That's 1.9 gigabytes of DAO-style epilogue slides, people.
Actually, no, according to Bioware, " it will include “additional scenes and epilogue sequences. It provides more of the answers and closure that players have been asking for. It gives a sense of what the future holds as a result of the decisions made throughout the series. And it shows greater detail
Character Feature: Shyla ShepardThe seemingly indomitable Shyla Shepard has lived a harsh and tragic past. After losing her family at sixteen to a bloody Batarian pirate attack on an Alliance colony, the young fighter joined the Alliance military only to lose her entire squad in a deadly thresher maw attack. In the years since, these early scars have forged a new identity out of the shattered ruins of the child whose family died on Mindoir. Known for her “tough but fair” approach, Shepard’s fight against the geth incursion broke new grounds for humanity when she became the first human Spectre on the galactic Council’s elite forces. But recent rumors have put in question Shepard’s loyalty to the Alliance forces.

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

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
Beyond the Extended Cut... I will reignite.And so the end creeped upon us. With the Extended Cut behind me I can finally say that I've seen the full extent of how BioWare wanted to end the Mass Effect trilogy... And I disliked it. Don't get me wrong, the Extended Cut is a vast improvement over the vanilla endings and I think that everyone should check it out - but it is still the same unfitting ending, it is still something taken out from another story and sewn onto Mass Effect's glistening skin, with it still kicking and screaming (yes, this is just a personal opinion and no, I am not bitter about that - I just dislike how it ended). The themes that made Mass Effect so great are still either nowhere to be found, or twisted around to present a vision I just cannot accept as something that belongs there. My fanface is itching, my writer sense tingling... Not the way I want to end one of the greatest sci-fi experiences of my nerdy little life.Beyond the Extended Cut...

Today on the Citadel, in the midst of the ongoing war against the reapers, Systems Alliance Commander Jane Shepard of the SSV Normandy and Turian Hierarch, Admiral Garrus Vakarian, head of Paleven STG, took some time out for an afternoon of picnicking, drinking, sport shooting and heavy petting from atop Presidium bridge 19.
Picked up live by security cameras, the Commander and the Admiral began the afternoon's dalliances by illegally parking on the bridge in violation of 137 Citadel ordinances. After partaking of the view, the couple French kissed and then Shepard, wearing a black, skin tight dress, was double dipped by the Turian in a passionate embrace.

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
