Finally got around to playing some Mass Effect 2 recently, been pottering about with it here and there on occasion. Neat so far, just got Garrus in my party! I’m playing on Casual because I really suck at this sort of game and the controls are kind of clunky-feeling to me, and ‘cos I’m mainly in it just for the exploration and story. Haha I keep dying on Casual, that’s how bad I am.
I greatly enjoy being derpy so I made a Sal Shepard just for laughs. He’s a sneaky jerk Earth-born Infiltrator who flirts and drinks and yeah-whatevers his way through everything. LOCK UP YOUR SPACE DAUGHTERS, LOCK UP YOUR SPACE WIVES.
Might go back and play the first ME sometime. The series’ music’s pretty cool, old-school scifi synthesizers are one of my favorite things in the world. Next to making ridiculous characters based on my own ridiculous characters.
Reblogging this silly two year old post because I only just beat ME3 with Sal tonight (I completed a full trilogy playthrough with a Paragon Femshep first) and I was feeling nostalgic. Hard to believe it’s been two years since I first suddenly wound up with a copy of ME2, and how far my interest in and love for the series/fictional universe has progressed since then!
RIP Sal Shep, you fucked up a lot because I had absolutely no idea what the hell I was doing and how the games worked but you were my first Shepard and everything turned out mostly good in the end.
I managed to unlock the Volus Engineer and when I went to try him out the match I randomly logged onto was entirely populated by voluses (volii?) as well
It was one of the most delightful games I’ve ever been a part of, I think
i couldnt scroll past this i had to reblog
I really tried to scroll past it
Oh shoot this is heartwarming as all heck
You know, I was all excited for the return of Game Of Thrones, but now that it’s actually here I’m…kind of not? Like the desire just sort of sputtered out along the way? I’m sure I’ll get around to it eventually and there’ll be a lot in it that I’ll love, but I just don’t feel like wading through all the fetishized violence and gore and sexposition. All the additional nudity and super-embarrassing awkward kinkiness and torture/murder of women that the show actually added to the story because I guess the source material wasn’t Xtreme or sexy enough somehow.
I guess this summarizes my feelings towards a lot of modern TV.
The Mass Effect Cosplay Initiative (Set 2/?) (1)
Luciano Costa, Kaidan’s face model
Kimberly Brooks, Ashley’s voice actor
Rana McAnear, Samara / Morinth face model
Keythe Farley, Thane’s voice actor
Whoa, Ashley’s voice actor
Why wasn’t she the face/body model for Ash as well, she would’ve been a hundred times more interesting and neat, lookit her rock that armor
So Winter Soldier was pretty cool! It’s nice to see the Marvel ‘filmverse’ keep growing and expanding and having different twists and definite consequences for later works, and to be done with a reasonable amount of skill. Haha remember when Marvel movies were rare and shitty and DC’s output left them in the dust? Now here we are where even Captain America is cool and relevant and kickass again, what a time to be alive
It’s also kinda tickling to see just how well-trained audiences are to stick around till the very end of the credits now, not a single person left the theater
One thing in particular has really got me curious, super-duper spoilers ahoy
Heyheyhey! About 6 months back you made a post about Burch wanting to include a trans character in Borderlands 3. Do you think that there was any chance that he might follow up on that with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel?
Hiya, and wow, good memory! :) I think it’s something he’s specifically shooting for in BL3, dunno if it’ll happen anytime before that. At the very least we’re getting some kick-ass ladies in Pre-Sequel, and a nice resuscitation of the criminally under-used Sheriff from BL2! I’m sure there’ll be other cool stuff as well!
Everybody knows about the “Forty” entry. Nobody seems to have considered that the other numbers would be just as ridiculous.
Seriously WHY HAVE I NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE
That is TOO MANY BEES WHEN YOU ARE TINY.
Some day I will track down this book, because literally every entry in it is incredible.
