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:

Today I've been informed by this gentleman :icongycee: about the identity of Jack's face model. If any of you guys would like to thank him for making your day, feel free to do so (I've already have and nearly proposed to him... until I realized he was a dude, of course).
Ahem! the model's name name is Candice Neil and as you can expect, she is absolutely gorgeous.
Stand back though! as the founder of this group, I alone reserve the right of marrying her in Vegas first! :iconichaincameplz:
I'm very happy to finally update this group with some good news. This could probably be the very last blog update we might get since ME3 is done and BioWare is moving on, but this group ain't. All the activity and submitting will remain the same until no more Jack artworks exist in dA.

Some Words About a Game.Heya,Some Words About a Game.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, I know I'm not usually serious, but I'd like to be just for a bit. This is a long post, so feel free to not read if you don't have the time. I totally get it. If you do have the time, please do. It might give you something to think about, especially if you're a female gamer.
I just wanted to take a moment to say that Mass Effect 3 has done something really amazing in my eyes.
I'm a 22-year-old female gamer. I've been playing video games since my very early childhood. Now, I'm attending a school to get a degree in making them.
I've been incredibly isolated because of who I am, and I've refused to change, willingly accepting my own fate of quiet evenings and cellphones that never ring. Other girls my age never understood me and refused to even try. They had their labels for me, and they swore I spoke another language if I mentioned my most favored of hobbies.
Then, I came to college. In my program, there's almost not a female in sight. The few that exist
Where do YOU want Mass Effect to go?Hello again, my readers, it is I once more. I couldn't have been more pleased to see that my fellow moderators were willing and able to keep you up to date with the most relevant of Mass Effect news while I've been sadly pulled away by Halo 4.Where do YOU want Mass Effect to go?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And by the way, fun fact; the bad guy in Halo 4 is voiced by the same guy as Harbinger. Go figure.
Now I'm not certain if this is still active, but Casey Hudson is taking a Twitter poll asking fans if they want ME4 to go forward or backward in the Mass Effect timeline.
Now don't kid yourself, the next Mass Effect game is a long ways away, all we know right now is that the protagonist will be radically different and the story will go somewhere entirely new.
So, what do you guys think? Oh, and if it pleased you, tweet your opinion with #MassEffect or just #ME and send out your thoughts.

What James Vega hatin' says about youThere are many factors that make a particular character resonate with a particular type of person. I find it fascinating when a character, especially one that gets so little actual story time in the Mass Effect games like James Vega, inspires such vitriol in an engaged audience. Everywhere his story is discussed, someone posts a nasty comment that they hate him or call him names.What James Vega hatin' says about you3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I'm not arguing that the game creators didn't drop the ball on his story. He could have been much more interesting. But the qualities that Vega's fans see in him don't go skin-deep. Even his physical appearance hints at a hidden depth, which almost always affects other areas of life and character development. This is the reason why I started writing the James Vega origins story, The One That Got Away, to show how these shallow elements, hinted at in the game and the boring Homeworlds comic, could have been made into a really interesting story and likeable character.

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: "Don't call it Mass Effect 4"In a move meant either to start out early distinguishing between the Shepard Trilogy and whatever BW have planned next, or just because they didn't like how simple it was to refer to it as "ME4", Chris Priestly, long runing Bioware Community Manager, said in a forum statement:Bioware: "Don't call it Mass Effect 4"2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"To call the next game Mass Effect 4 or ME4 is doing it a disservice and seems to cause a lot of confusion here. We have already said that the Commander Shepard trilogy is over and that the next game will not feature him/her. That is the only detail you have on the game.
"I see people saying 'well, they'll have to pick a canon ending'. No, because the game does not have to come after. Or before. Or off to the side. Or with characters you know. Or yaddayaddayadda. Wherever, whenever, whoever, etc will all be revealed years down the road when we actually start talking about it.

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:

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!

While it's certainly been fun wreaking six kinds of havoc on the various multiplayer venues (Platinum difficulty, gah!) I'm sure a lot of you are looking forward to new single player content to tackle.
Announced during EA's summer showcase, Leviathan will tell the story of increasing desperation, a quest for vengeance, and will add entirely new avenues of play.
The setup for Leviathan is that humanity is looking for anything and everything to win the war and get Earth back. Admiral Hackett has been running black op missions with the goal of tracking down a mysterious and elusive creature that has been killing Reapers; the Leviathan Of Dis. Vanishing decades ago, no one has been able to come close to locating it again, until a scientist on the Citadel finds a trace that could lead them to the enigmatic dreadnaught, but then --as scientists are w

The Jiralhanae (Brutes) returned to their primitive savage nature after the San 'Shyuum disappeared, allowing the Sangheili to gain the upper-hand in the post-war Great Schism battles and push them back to their homeworld Doisac.
After the Human-Covenant War, the Arbiter Thel 'Vadam formed an alliance between the Humans and Sangheili, this can be said to be the "new peaceful Covenant".
However, other Sangheili that were against the alliance still believed in the Great Journey, and continued to adhere to the philosophy and religion of the San 'Shyuum, forming The Storm, or the Storm Covenant. The Storm Covenant consists of Sangheili, Jackals, and Grunts, with Sangheili serving as the military leadership caste.

•Give Natalie the equips with the highest magic attack (x2.7~ damage)
•Give Natalie Hela's Staff to boost Dark skills (1.5x damage)

•Find a foe that's really weak against Dark (x1.8~ damage)

I hit 4 million damage like this against a Chimera Bear at level 40.
If I had managed to freeze the foe (x2 damage), it would have been 8 million!
Since player damage roughly doubles every 5 levels, 3 million damage should be possible at level 34! (with some luck and lots of p
