Mass Effect: Retaliation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foFmDj87ltM
What do we have here? This is the largest expansion to the multiplayer to date.
Well, first and foremost, we have an entirely new enemy faction: the Collectors are returning to Mass Effect!
The old faces from ME2 will be coming back with the Praetorian, Scion, Abomination, Trooper and Collector Captain, and these familiar foes will fight alongside the new Dragoons and different Geth drones.
Two new allies will be made available, the Turian Ghost Infiltrator and Havoc Soldier. Jet packs, people.
Just when you thought getting thrown off the map as a Vanguard was fun.
Bioware says "many more" characters will be added on a "regular basis".
Collector Weapons will be made available as well, coming with the assault rifle, SMG, and sniper rifle all in your favorite crunchy buggy flavor!

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
How to show respect for your characters...Hey guys, DarkShockBro here.How to show respect for your characters...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Being a creative writer myself, I tend to read a lot of fan fiction and watch a lot of cartoons. During this time, I tend to pick up on certain characteristics common to every work of literature. Some of these traits are good, others not so much.
My most recent pursuits have been focused on why characters are considered to be unlikable. And, after encountering a few characters that almost no one seems to like, I decided to generate backstories for them. And, to my surprise, after reading them, those same characters became more meaningful, complex, realistic, and, to my surprise, likable. Obviously, Diamond Tiara was the first beneficiary of my practices, but I've been giving backstories to other characters as of recent. And that got me to thinking: what makes characters unlikable, and what can be done to make them likable, or at the very least, respectable?
The answer, while seemingly complex, is actually a lot simpler than I initially believed, and I think
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. Our investigator setup an exclusive interview to delve into the truth behind the legend.Character Feature: Shyla Shepard4 years ago in Personal More Like This

For instance, earlier, a Reddit tipster posted information about the Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut, as well as another Multiplayer DLC pack.
This is the same Redditor who posted about the Rebellion DLC pack, so this claim, I think, is worth some merit.
The product description for the Extended Cut reads, "An expanded ending for Mass Effect 3. Additional scenes and an extended epilogue reveal the impact of Shepard's choices on the future of the galaxy."
Well, at least they didn't try to say they had "new" information.
And as for the other DLC pack, the Earth Multiplayer Pack, it was said that it will be including three new maps, three new weapons, and six new human classes.
The maps are set in the Earth cities of Rio, Vancouver, and London.
The new weapons are the Piranha Assault Shotgun, Acolyte Pistol, and the Typhoon LMG.
New N7 human classes are the Paladin

#6 in THE DIARY of JANE
It was another evening of cross species cultural exchange on route to Vermire; ETA 36 hours. Poker was the game of choice on the Normandy and this evening the table was packed. Most of the officers and the "Saren" team were there. The humans, Alenko, Adams, Pressly, Moreau, Chakwas, Williams, and of course Shepard were dealt in. Liara, Tali played but Wrex and I did not.
I sipped from the bottle of French brandy that Shepard had given me for stepping in front of her and taking a hit when her shields were disabled on Noveria and listened to the chatter. Wrex was hitting on Tali and telling her that he still remembered what Quarians looked like before the suits. I could never tell if Wrex was serious about getti

Nothing changes up to the exact moment when Hacket informs Shepard that the crucible is not firing.
Shepard is then offered both a paragon and renegade trigger option, paragon being disable reapers renegade being transfer control to the citadel console. There is no god child ultimatum.
Shepard will lunge and hit the decided button and collapse to the floor. Shepard will then receive a call from Hacket informing Shepard that the crucible worked. If Shepard's war assets were at a certain level the player will receive one of three endings.
If assets are very low and readiness is 60 percent or lower Shepard will exclaim it's finally over and a montage of all of the player's key decisions will play highlig

"Check this out," she said.
I read the label out loud. "Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips. Safe for Humans, Asari, Turians and Quarians. What is this?" I asked.
"Ah… I can eat that." I read over the ingredient list. "Sodium chloride, sodium acetate, no chiral centers, very good." I slit the top of the bag with my talons. She grabbed a bowl from shelf and I poured the chips in. I took one and placed it on my tongue, very conscious that she was watching my reaction. It was crunchy, salty with a hint of vinegar and as it sat on my tongue I could taste the sweet of starch turning to sugar...

'Let The Light In (LTLI) is a new tutorial series from the group Good-Intention that will focus on the hows and whys of committing good deeds around the deviantART community.
The first edition of this series will focus on how to create an art feature in order to help fellow friends and artists gain some exposure for their work, regardless of the media. This is a fantastic way to brighten someone's day, and promote some positivity.
What Is An Art Feature?
An Art Feature is a journal (blog / article) that showcases deviations from one, or multiple artists. You may peruse the Art Feature Folder for some examples. Users choose to create art features for a number of reasons, from showcasing artwork they admire, to helping under-appreciated artists gain more views, to promoting art from their friends or watchers. No matter what the motivation, art features are a great way t

After 5 years, after 3 games and after much speculation we finally have an official in game Turian female. It's shame that Bioware didn't decide to include Turian female models in the main game, because now it feels like a token girl and not much more. Also the fact that it will be featured in the paid Omega DLC makes it even more bittersweet, but hey it's still better than nothing. The DLC will appear on November 27th and will cost 1200 Bioware/Microsoft points. Tell us what you think about her:
For a little comparison I'll hotlink a picture of Lieutenant Abrudas, the very first Turian female shown in the Mass Effect Evolution comic:

I want to challenge you not to think like everybody else. Find people you think are successful and do your research. Sometimes the pattern of thinking you have, your philosophy, etc. may have to change. If you want change, you have to change. No one but you can achieve your dreams. Even if you take the same steps to achieve something that someone else have you will have different obstacles, experience and learning curves and in that same aspect you will have slightly different results whether you succeed or fail. The trick is to turn EVERY SITUATION into a learning situation.
Don't let your emotions rule you. Don't let your excuses rule you. You don't have to share everything about yourself with others to achieve things

The fans are mobilizing to get additional (more happy) ME3 ending. And if they were able to force Bioware to make a re-write of the failed book, maybe they will be able to achieve this too.

But today I'm going to be doing something different ... giving advice.TDI Fanfic Winners- The Explanation for begginers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You see, some people have asked me over the last few weeks how I go about choosing a winner for a Total Drama fanfic; well, I can't exactly say my own methods, because it's simply what appeals to me and sicne I'm an individual my own atstes may not appeal to others. However, I have decided to talk about the different 'types' of winners that there are and how to pull them off.
This is the most common type of winner in a TD fanfic. These winners tend to be focused on and play an important role in the story; they beat the bad guys, make friends and usually have a relationship. They usually are shown to be positive and have a strong story. They can be predictable though. A good way to get this sort of winner to work is to show more sides to them besides being nice.
