Welcome back, Drew Karpyshyn! You are the writer of the original Mass Effect, and a lad who had spent a long time with BioWare. You wandered off, and realized how good you had it at your former employer. Now you’ve returned. Wizened. Grateful. Homesick. Us BioWare fans are happy to have you back, too.
Give me *all* the Asari cosplay, please.
SOMETIMES I JUST TYPE HEADLINES AND MAKE THEM WORK. Or not work. I got nothing. Hit the jump for some gorgeous FemShep cosplay by Anais Roberts.
I’m a total slut for anything Mass Effect. I love me the franchise, in fact it may be my current favorite. I’m doing shit I swore I would never fucking do with a video game series: read the novels and the comic books. Condemn me! So fuck yeah, I’m stoked at the announcement that there’s going to be a Mass Effect anime.
I’m a big honking fucking slut for Mass Effect, its entire franchise, and whatever sort of refuse BioWare will peddle out with its name stamped on it. Admittedly. Since Mass Effect 2 came out, I’ve bought all the DLC, happily wasting my hard earned Imperial credits on throwaway content that should have been a quest on the disc. A quest on the disc that I would have pounded through and sort of bemoaned it. Then Lair of the Shadow Broker dropped, and I was all, “Oh shit! A legit dope quest!” A quest so good that I deemed it better than a good 75% of the material that launched with the title. It set the bar. It set the bar high.
So pretty much, ‘Arrival’ was fucked from the get go. High standards, falling interest!
Oh hell yeah! Mass Effect 2 is getting its final DLC ‘Arrival’ on March 29. This is fucking righteous for two reasons. Firstly, it’s more Mass Effect 2. Secondly, it’s hopefully confirmation that the motherfucking third installment is coming this winter. Hopefully. BioWare promised to bridge Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 through DLC, and it appears they weren’t stunting. The premise of Arrival is that Shepard is “sent to the edge of the galaxy to rescue an undercover operative who may have evidence of an imminent Reaper invasion.”
Hit the jump for some teaser screens.
Only on Omega Level will you find an asshole blathering gibberish about Mass Effect 2 when a single screenshot hints at not a new game, but more DLC. But that’s what I’m doing. Fuck you! Remember that ME2 DLC, ‘Arrival’ that was hinted at in a patch or whatever? Today BioWare posted a picture on their Facebook with the overt hint, “New Mass Effect 2 screenshots have Arrived.” Hey, I get it, arrived! Like Arrival.
But still. I’m freaking out. I have an unhealthy obsession with the franchise.
Hit the jump for the picture.
Mass Effect 2 was recently patched for the PlayStation 3, and said patch may have tipped BioWare’s upcoming DLC hand. Fuck yes! Want to know more? Hit the jump where the trophy descriptions have some mild spoilers. I’m spanking.
Remember your gender roles, kids! Women are busy being spread-eagle, and sexualized. Men? We walk through fucking fire! That’s what this fan art by Protsenko Pavel teaches us. Just about affirms every gender role we’re used to. The saddest part? I still enjoy it. I am an unprincipled man, full of bullshit.
The artwork itself is sexy.
Hit the jump for space-babes, and totally tough alien dudes.
