bioware games

Kylan. A self-reliant, but sensitive and shy mage. He lives apart from his clan, in a nice and comfortable cave. Makes money by selling potions and magic items to merchants. Occasionally visits the city for business, in disguise due to fear of being caught by templars. Fells in love with an unsuspecting kind-hearted templar who is fascinated by elven culture and has a dream of seeing halla one day.

I’m planning to make a couple of comics when I’m free and have a better written story. These are very spontaneous OCs but I like them more than anything I’ve ever created =w= 

If you are interested in sOME GAY ROMANCE, I would appreciate any encouragement ^^

Who’s Writing Anthem & What That Could Mean For The Game’s Story

This video profiles all of the publicly-known writers who have worked on BioWare’s new IP, Anthem, their past experience, and what that could mean for the quality of story in the game.

Me replaying a game: Alrightee, time to begin a new journey with a different character. 

Also me: Picks same hair style, same hair color, same eyebrows, same eye color, same nose, same makeup, same romance, same dialogue options, same combat skills, same fucking everything. 

no offence but when lgbt+ gamers speak out about romance (options) in bioware games and get told by straight fans that they shouldn’t play the games just for romance they are completely missing the point and i am tired of it

We will say goodbye, and we will look back one last time. And know that, wherever you go, we will be with you.

This is Commander Shepard, signing off.

While I’m so, so, excited for Andromeda, I still can’t bear with the thoughts of actually leaving the Milky Way cast. Here’s to the new game in the series, and we’ll gonna miss you, guys!

A French streamer played a French XBox One copy of Mass Effect Andromeda, and in so doing let viewers see a … pronounced difference in the facial animation quality.

Even the run animation is more stable.

It’s at times like these when I wish I knew more about the tech side of game development.

What could account for quality such as this on a French console when US PC users seem to have no end of… the sort of thing posted in a lot of places by now?

I mean, that is a non-zero difference.

If you watch the stream, you see that it is indeed the default Ryder face – but even if it weren’t, why would a custom face fix the leg animation?

EDIT:

I’ve noted this in replies and reblogs of replies and seen it here and there over a thousand notes, so I might as well mention it in the main post.

The US PC “default” face did in fact appear in the French streamer’s video, when it came time to select male or female:

However, the streamer on French XBO did not select a default face, and did not select his Sara Ryder through that male/female option. He backed out and ultimately selected a quickstart Sara Ryder:

Which gave him the face in the top images.

My question is still “Why, though?

I’ve also been told that he was playing a previous build. If it was a different version than release, however, why is the US PC’s Sara face still there in the sex selection? Was the streamer playing a very particular version that came in the development process after making both of those default faces but before settling on one?

I keep asking these sorts of questions because it confuses me. It actually doesn’t affect me very much because I plan to make a custom face that looks like neither of the ones presented. I’m just baffled from a technical perspective, and can’t abide a mystery that seems like it should have a knowable answer.

(And as for the run animation, I’ve been told that there was nothing inherently wrong with it, but that it can be made to look weird with the right wiggling of directions on the controller. So there’s that part answered, at least.)

Today I learned that if you actually let the timer in the Arrival DLC run out it shows the reapers arriving and destroying the galaxy. Such highlights include:

  • The Citadel being destroyed
  • Shepards helmet (head??) on a SPIKE
  • Destroyed Normandy
  • All your friends and crew lining up to be executed
  • Kellys FACE MELTING OFF

Am I the only one just finding this out because holy shit
