Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod...Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod2 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:

ME3 endings versus angry fansWarning! The text below includes heavy spoilers, so people who didn't finish ME3 yet should avoid it.ME3 endings versus angry fans3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The battle between Bioware and it's fans rages on. This year we already had three occasions to write angry notes to Bioware. The failed 4th book - that was more of a fanfic than a book. The Day-1 DLC "From ashes" fiasco, and now the boycott of ME3 endings. Endings that were renounced by the fans as uncanonical.
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.
Here you can vote in the polls on Bioware Social:

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.

Red Sand (2012) is a fan film that serves as a prequel to the Mass Effect series. It is set 35 years before
the plot of the games and tells the story of the discovery of the ancient Prothean ruins of Mars.
The film stars Mark Meer, voice of the male version of Commander Shepard in the games, as Colonel Jon Grissom.
It was produced by the students and faculty of the Digital Video Program at the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, Arizona. http://kotaku.com/5885575/this-mass-effect-movie-actually-stars-the-real-commander-shepard
The right way to end a storyI'd like to share a few paragraphs from a great book about writing fiction by Nancy Kress, called "Beginnings, Middles and Ends". Boring title, but a very useful book that every aspiring writer should have on their reference shelf.The right way to end a story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The following passage is from the chapter "Satisfying Endings: Delivering on the Promise". Please note that Nancy expounds at length that not all endings need to be happy, and indeed, many shouldn't be in order to be effective. I was not at all upset that there was no "happy" ending with the new ME3 DLC. The issues were more fundamental, with the way they developed the story arc and in the end, betrayed several of them, mostly in delivery. But the problems weren't unsalvageable to begin with.
"To succeed, a climax must do four things:
" 1. The climax must satisfy the view of life implied in your story."
Nancy mentioned before this about making a promise with your story, that t
Fairy tail Ezra x male readerI was raised to protect and that I did. As young as I can remember I was trained to help, protect and defeat evil, I was gifted with magic powers beyond others comprehension. I can turn my skin into dragon scales to absorb power and my lungs are the same as a dragons to breath fire as well as the strength. My father was a soldier of the foreign "Drachentöter" German for dragon slayer, and my mother part of the "La santé de l'érable" French for maple health. With the power I was given was a long and hard road to learn but at the end my training was almost complete. I chose to put on a mask to cover my face, only my family has seen my face but that was a long time ago. I'm 15 now in a new land filled with people, especially evil ones. I made gold by taking bounties but I preferred not to kill them because of morals, I was after a man named Natsu and I was support to challenge him and defeat him.

Hard core, manToday at work, an older gentleman came in and asked how much it would cost to make copies of nine pages from a law book. I told him that at fifteen cents per page, his order would cost $1.35. He put one elbow on the counter, waggled his eyebrows, and said, “I bet you could use that for your party money, huh?”Hard core, man10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I had to refrain from cackling because a) $1.35 won’t even buy a pack of those noisemakers you use to annoy your parents on New Year’s Eve and b) I am the absolute farthest thing from a party girl ever. My idea of a party involves Disney karaoke, sliding on the tile in my socks, and rolling around on the floor until my gas is gone. I have had, in total, approximately four to five whole glasses of wine in my entire life. I do not twerk, grind, bump, or air hump. I do not shake my thing up in the club with my homies. I do not participate in keggers. The shortest skirt I own comes to the middle of my knees. I would rather wear a bustle than

In Memory of Robin SachsIn Memory of Robin Sachs2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
With the news just released to the news, I would like to share this to any who have not read it yet.
Robin Sachs has suddenly passed away on February 1, 2013, short of his 62nd birthday. Most Mass Effect fans will know this man as the voice of former Blue Suns mercenary, Zaeed Massani. However, Robin Sachs is a veteran voice actor to video games, and a veteran actor to the small screen.
Voice Acting Credentials:
Zaeed Massani - Mass Effect 2 and 3
Lord Pyral Harrowmont/Murdock/Experienced Human Male - Dragon Age Orgins
Admiral Saul Karath - Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
Along with Rainbow Six, Kane and Lynch, and Resident Evil.
He is also a veteran science fiction actor having roles from Babylon 5, Star Trek Voyager, Torchwood, to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
This versatile actor that has become synonymous with Zaeed Massani, will be missed.

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

Mass Effect: The End of an Era (SPOILERS)SPOILERS!!!Mass Effect: The End of an Era (SPOILERS)2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So this is the end of Mass Effect. Not just of the last game, but of the trilogy as a whole. Right now, I am of two minds. I am not wholly satisfied with the so called Extended Cut but at the same time it has some redeeming qualities to it that I can not, in good conscience, ignore:
It provides closure: For those who wanted to see what happened to the characters they came to love and the galaxy as a whole.
Injected some measure of reasoning to the actions/words of the God Child: They showed more of the logic behind the Reapers actions and how the Catalyst works.
There is something for everyone: The endings appear to be based on fan input/outcry.
The filled in some of the plot holes and contradictions: Not all of them, but by lessing the impact of the Catalyst, it showed that the damage was reversible.
It brings back some elements of classic science fiction.
Yet, two facts remain. One, the underlying logic behind the God Child is still flawed, although the designers lampsahe
