Bioware to aim for your delicious tears once more.There are few, very few inescapable truths. One being the fact that Chris Matthews goes home every night to renew the magical wards that keep the dessicated soul of his hair in the realm of the living. Another being the fact that Bioware subsists on the delicious tears of their fans, and they are gunning for them once again.Bioware to aim for your delicious tears once more.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
While some of you may still be working on Omega --I'm downloading it today, in fact-- Bioware is rolling ahead with its next DLC. According to forum posts it's "all hands on deck" for this one, writing wise, involving "pretty much every ME writer at Edmonton."
There's a good chance that this might be the last DLC of the Shepard trilogy, and it's been said that there is a "high potential" for tears.
Although beyond these statements, there've been no real things said about this unannounced add on. Likely due to how it's not been announced yet. (I know, who'da thunk.) Although Sam Hulick is coming in again for the music.
No real further thoughts about this, Halo
Official Turian Female sneak peak and N7 Day...Official Turian Female sneak peak and N7 Day3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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:
In other news - the first N7 Day is coming our way fast. The celebration is schedueled for November 7th. You can find more information about it on the official Mass Effect facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=380737978668258&set=a.259483477460376.58244.256213217787402&type=1

They also said a lot about very little on the next steps for the Mass Effect franchise. The Mass Effect movie got mentioned again too, but I'll be getting to that later.
Oh, and about the Citadel DLC, I have not played it. I have run out of room on my Xbox's hard drive, so I'll finding whatever I have on there I don't need right now and will be getting rid of that for a while to make some room.
Plus, part of me doesn't want it to be over...
Anyway, a panel of seven of the Bioware dev team discussed some of the final statistics gathered over the course of Mass Effect 3's play cycle.

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

Hey dear watchers!
Long time no new version of XPS i see. But don't worry here's a new one!
This is also a kind of needed update for evryone using the previous versions since they will expire tommorrow...
Expire? What does that mean?
- It means that your version of XPS will not start anymore. You will get a error message on startup.
But i liked my version, why upgrade?
- New features have been added and old ones are still working! I tested the version myself and saw nothing that doesn't work anymore.
Wait, you said 'New Features'?
- Yepp! Here they are:
- > No expiration date anymore. This program will work as long as you want it to!
- > Save as 'old Generic_Item' as an option is now available under 'Modify> Save Generic_Item'. Old Generic Item just means that these exported models will also work in XNALara. This works most of the times but not when

The extended cut of Mass Effect 3 did more than just add a slideshow (although there actually was one at one point). BioWare has given players a new ending as well. Shepard can now tell the star child to go to hell and refuse to make a decision.

Let's talk about games journalismA lot has been said about the quality of games journalism, about the problems plaguing the review system and the relationship between the games industry and those supposed to keep it honest. The problem with this discussion, however, is that it doesn’t resemble a discussion at all… Things are being said, accusations made, statements dispensed, and yet there’s very little actual conversation to be had. Worrisome tendencies are shrugged off by industry insiders, while many gamers – frustrated with the lack of answers (as I am myself quite often) – bring out the big guns, accusing each and every review they disagree with as being “paid off” or otherwise influenced by big-name publishers.Let's talk about games journalism2 years ago in Personal More Like This
