How I recalibrated my Play Arts KAI Mass Effect 3 Female Commander Shepard.


I finally worked up the courage to make the necessary modifications yesterday. To my immense relief, my figure survived the process. I didn’t want to touch the sculpt, so I did my best to replicate my Shepard with a little bit of a repaint to give the figure Braea’s black hair, stronger brows, paler lips, and blue-gray eyes.

Reflecting on Mass Effect on Shepard Day – a personal retrospective.


If you read my blog at all or know me in almost any context, you know I really love Mass Effect. I’m a total Mass Effect nerd. I had the Normandy on my wedding cake and everything. After watching BioWare’s Mass Effect Retrospective video from PAX East, and reading some of Kotaku’s Mass Effect Week articles recently, I got to thinking about how I got roped into this obsession in the first place. Warning: Mild Mass Effect 1-3 spoilers within.

This takes place after Mass Effect 2 and before Mass Effect 3, so you have been forewarned of spoilers!

Onward to Diablo III, but still dreaming of Mass Effect.


Some of you may know that, besides all the other pies I’ve got my fingers in, I also write game reviews for Game Chronicles Magazine in my off hours. My kindly editor-in-chief decided to assign me and a friend Diablo III to review, so I’ve been having fun with that. I’m saving up my comments for the review, so I won’t be posting them here. I’d usually start with a melee class, but I’m going wizard this time!

(Mass Effect ending discussion (with spoilers) after the jump.)

Happy birthday, Shepard.


To Braea, and everyone else’s Shepards. ;P I’m not supposed to be using my thumb yet, but I haven’t drawn in ages and had to make an exception. ;P

On second thought…


Upon further reflection, I’m now convinced that BioWare is brilliant and probably planned all of this Mass Effect 3 mayhem.

Musings on the Mass Effect 3 ending.


I finally finished the game last night and chewed on my ending for a few hours. I haven’t read anyone else’s comments on the ending yet – I wanted to jot down my own thoughts before I do that – so forgive me if I’m beating a dead horse. I wanted to write out my thoughts and feelings on this game, whether anyone reads them or not.

WARNING: this post contains spoilers for Mass Effect 3. Continue at your own discretion.
