Jacob Taylor at 0:46, appearance unchanged.
Miranda --oh so very briefly-- at 1:04, appearance unchanged.
Samara at 1:11, appearance also unchanged.
And Legion, too, don't think I missed him.
Also, the Orbital Bombardment Designator has made another appearance.
Aside from the whole "female Shepard" thing, this trailer is really showcasing the increased cinematic quality in ME3. Like the Uncharted games, to name an example.

Serbia needs your help!Source: http://novakdjokovicfoundation.org/news/news/2014.734.htmlSerbia needs your help!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
"SEVERE floods have struck the people in Serbia these days, leaving thousands of children homeless, without food, water, warm and dry clothes. Roads and bridges are flooded, schools and kindergartens have been shut down, 100,000 homes in Serbia left without power, while rain-swollen rivers and surging water course through towns and villages, overflowing across streets into homes, causing landslides and other disasters.
The situation is so dramatic, that entire families have lost their homes in the floods. Finding a shelter is a real adventure for many. In the city of Svilajnac more than 1.000 flood victims had to seek refuge on the roof tops, waiting for the rescuers to come and save them. In Veliko Polje near Obrenovac the dam broke, and the river flooded the whole area… Hundreds of cars and buses are stranded along the flooded roads. The situation is most dramatic in western Serbia, where more tha

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:

The Batarang, part bat part orangutan.
This tree-dwelling ape is a peaceful, rarely seen creature, especially since it's nocturnal. They eat mainly fruits and seeds, and sometimes large insects. They suffer from the unfortunate compulsion to suddenly hurl themselves at passing supervillains. It is possible this is the main reason they are critically endangered.

One; you can go to this page http://www.facebook.com/xbox?sk=app_316882578351614 and pick one of two options, you can Paragon flirt with Liara, or you can Renegade turn her down.

Some thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.I commission art a lot. I've commissioned from many different artists all over the world. And after several years here are a few on my own personal thoughts on commissionsSome thoughts on commissions from a commissioner.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. List you prices.
- Whether its flat rates or by the hour, artists that commissions should list their rates. Most the time the old saying "If you have to ask, it probably costs to much." really comes into play here. I'm so much more likely to commission someone where I can gauge my budget. I myself am a single income family of five. That means I have a budget. A budget means I shop around. So that means when I am comparing artists if I know what I can spend with one and not the other, I'm more likely to go with the one I know I can budget.
2. List your customers.
- It is so much easier for a person to know where they stand when you have them listed.
2½. Update your customers.
- Most artists have an idea how long something is going to take. Now it's understandable that the idea isn't always acc
Colorists: Having Difficulty Finding A Skintone?This happens to me all the time.Colorists: Having Difficulty Finding A Skintone?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I'm starting out an image, and for the life of me, I just cannot determine what color I should use for the skintone. I wish I had a crystal ball that would show me thirty minutes into the future so I can see just how a character will look after applying all the necessary shading, anatomical detailing, and highlights based upon the base color I use. A lot of times, it'll appear too faint, too desaturated, or on the flip side, way too bold and gleaming like a bronzed deity caked in a thick lathering of walrus grease.
Which is delicious, by the way.
FORTUNATELY! The folks at The Humanae Tumblr seemed to have a crystal ball of their own. Not so much one that shows the final product of my work, but one that certainly told them of my many incredibly frustrating endeavors into spending a good chunk of time shading a character's skin only to realize the base tone was absolute g
Creators Rights at ConventionsConventions have become big business in the last few years. More shows keep popping up, attendance keeps rising, and there's more money than ever being passed around as comics continue to merge with pop culture/big media/corporate sponsorships into what I've been calling Supershows.Creators Rights at Conventions1 month ago in Personal More Like This
For the most part, I think this is a great thing for the creators and our industry. While a few might miff at the thought of comics being intruded upon by other industries, it means more chances for starving artists to make money, more money for commissions and prints, and chances to travel to exotic locations that were never previously on our agenda.
More and more frequently, creators are being lured to shows all over the world with travel costs (at least partially) comped. When they arrive, they'll be met by capable handlers, lines of cheering fans, and fancy parties while they're given the brief whiff of stardom that's usually reserved for Mick Jagger.
But not always.

We have an trailer for the Story and Choice/Consequences mechanics. Note; there is a bunch of new footage, but mostly just cool new battle clips and a very short excerpt from a mission that shows the different outcomes of a mid-mission choice.
And lastly we have the Enemies Trailer. This is the special trailer for two reasons. One; it finally shows gives a first look at one of ME3's main antagonists, and secondly; it shows more Female Shepard. (And that Kaidan bloke, too.)
But stay tuned; David Silverman is saying the Female Shepard Trailer will finally be releas

Infiltrator revealed, From Dust DLC TeasedMass Effect Galaxy is the only piece of Mass Effect canon I have yet to ingest --baring Mass Effect: Deception-- and this is most likely attributed to the fact that I lack an iPhone.Infiltrator revealed, From Dust DLC Teased3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But Mass Effect Galaxy is the one piece of Mass Effect Canon in which I no longer have any interest. I was really disappointed to find out that the batarian ambassador was the villain.
Plus, I heard some shoddy reviews for it.
Still, this initial misstep was one Bioware have taken in stride and will hopefully get on track with their newest piece of money-evacuating software; Mass Effect: Infiltrator.
You thought the title was referring to the Infiltrator class getting a showcase on its ME3 improvements, didn't you? Yeah, I did, too.
Infiltrator will be a solid departure from the formula of Galaxy, instead sticking to the third person combat of the main games, as well as ditching the cartoony style.
And --just like everything else and its dog-- it will increase your Galactic Readiness meter in both the cons
Bioware R/ ME: Deception, Alliance News NetworkTo tell the truth, I still have yet to purchase Mass Effect: Deception. But I nonetheless heard about the uproar behind it.Bioware R/ ME: Deception, Alliance News Network3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently, the author was not familiar with the details surround the lore of Mass Effect, leading to numerous mistakes. Including batarians being able to launch a slave raid on Palaven, volus not having to wear full environment suits, and some people raged over the fact that there were references to Hendel Mitra being interested in women. (I can only assume that the people who were complaining about this missed the memo that there's no reason the phenomenon otherwise known as "Andersification" can't go both ways. But I digress.)
Obviously, the Mass Effect fanbase was testy to say the least, going on and on at a twenty-five hundred posts a day about the issue. And that's all entirely understandable; the Mass Effect Wiki is a painstakingly constructed online document which is made and upkept by fans. Incorporating these new lore-breaking inconsistencies into the ca
