I know y’all like video game teaser trailers.
It was suggested the other day that I do a FOTD about Pluto. I thought about it but the reason I didn’t want because there really isn’t a lot of Pluto in sci-fi/fantasy pop culture.
Going through the Halo Waypoint forums, as I am want to do as someone with poor time management yet able to get things done, I came across a fan asking about a Halo book. It was under the title of "Halo: Heroes of Crassus". As one who is in the know, I knew that it wasn't a real, official Halo novel. Yet it was on…
The awesome Garrus and Tali costume hoodies are pretty deeply discounted at the Bioware store today. I've been eyeing one of these for a while, and haven't seen them go on sale often, so I jumped on it.
Have you been yearning for a little Turian badassery in your home décor? For $330, Bioware's got you covered.
What's in a name for the galaxy's favourite Commander? According to data revealed by Bioware today, quite a lot - and although the most popular names for Commander Shepard were the defaults of John and Jane, for those that chose a name of their own there were a few popular choices.
The AMC first look for "Penny Dreadful" is playing "Leaving Earth" from the Mass Effect 3 soundtrack as its music. I recognize it because I'm a nerd who's listened to the ME3 soundtrack a lot.
...and I'm just sitting here thinking, "well, could have been worse."
So is it just me or is the Observation Deck's new logo happen the same as that of the Spectre program from Mass Effect? I'm just wondering if I was recruited into the interstellar hybrid of INTERPOL / Delta Force or not. That'd be kind of cool I guess, but I don't think I'm really qualified.
It's a bit dusty here, isn't it?
Commander Shepard and Agent Coulson had a crossover. But, it's not the good kind. See, some concept drawing for BioWare's popular sci-fi video game saga apparently got swiped in a recent episode of the Marvel Entertainment television series. And some eagle-eyed Mass Effect fans spotted it.
You should already know which one is my favourite.
Today is N7 Day, the second of Bioware's annual community faux-holidays celebrating the Mass Effect franchise and its fans - and here's the studio's way of saying thanks to the players that made the series great.

So. After some very kind and encouraging responses to my post on the Hepler article, I decided to take the plunge... and I bought a used copy of Mass Effect 2 from Game Stop tonight.
Fan artist Andrew Ryan (no, not that one) is well known for his delightful mashup of placing Mass Effect's characters in Dragon Age's dark fantasy setting, but now the tables have been turned, and it's time for the heroes of Thedas to get a sci-fi twist.
Matt Rhodes' behind the scenes peek at concepting for Bioware starts with a fantastic description of his job: 'The role of a Concept Artist is the role of an explorer, tasked with charting a world without sunlight'. And now he's revealed a little of that light, and what went into designing Dragon Age and Mass Effect.
