Androme-Thoughts
Note: These are just random thoughts I jotted down while playing. They didn’t really fit into the general review, but they may shed a little more light on my personal thoughts. I don't think I spoil anything major that isn't covered in the first hour of the story, so most will probably be safe reading this.
Clancy Brown does a surprisingly great job as Alec Ryder. I thought he’d have the typical bored celebrity voiceover performance seen in many games, but I actually really like Alec’s character. I also like Alec’s early role in the game, short as it may be. I like starting off in a role where someone else is the tried-and-true hero who’s prepared for anything. You really get the sense that Alec was always meant to be the hero of the story (which, technically, he was).
That said, I think his character is really wasted after they kill him so quickly. This is a Bioware game so familial death is nothing new, but I think killing him off in the opening a

New Beginnings: A Review of Mass Effect: Andromeda
I’m not sure any game has ever been as unintentionally self-referential as Mass Effect: Andromeda. Bioware’s newest space-faring action RPG had some mighty big shoes to fill after the last entry in the franchise wowed and angered gamers in equal measure. The bar was set unimaginably high, and expectations for a masterpiece only grew as the years passed.
Now, after five years, Mass Effect has emerged from hibernation and discovered a brand new galaxy – in more ways than one. Just like the residents of the colonist ark Hyperion, Mass Effect has undergone a long and perilous journey to get where it is today. And just like the protagonist Ryder, it’s quickly discovered that not everything is as rosy as it was expected to be. And yet despite the hardships and the problems, there is still hope for a better future for everyone.
Could a game get more meta?
Anyone who hasn’t been living under a rock is at least a little familiar with the general story: somet

Early Thoughts on Mass Effect: Andromeda
I, like many many other gamers worldwide, finally got early access to Mass Effect: Andromeda last night. As part of EA’s Play First early access program (for which I shelled out an extra $5 specifically to get early access to MEA) I was treated to ten hours of the main campaign. And like virtually everyone else who has put fingers to keyboards to take the newest Bioware adventure for a spin, I have some thoughts.
To make a long story short for my more impatient readers: I liked it, but I didn’t love it.
Now, it’s impossible to make an educated, accurate decision about the game based solely on the opening act. This is particularly unwise when dealing with Bioware games, as the company has historically not always put their best foot forward in the opening hours of their games. For evidence of this, look no further than KOTOR’s slog through Taris or Dragon Age: Inquisition’s seemingly endless trudge through the Hinterlands.
Personally, I

Hey, everybody. Just wanted to pop in to let you all know I'm still kicking, though my absence will have to continue for a while. My job search continues with little success at the moment, and until I get that part of things sorted my writing has to take a backseat.

I'll get back on top of things as soon as possible, but that first requires I get a steady income going. I'll let you know when things change.

Thanks for your patience,

Edit: So a small update. Finally found a job in a nearby city working as a security guard. I'm excited at the prospect of this job, but it will take some getting used to. I'll let everybody know when I'm back on track.

Could this be a teaser for something? Maybe... We'll all just have to wait and see. ;)

X-COM's Finest
Well an XCOM 2 expansion just came out and that means I'm back at it: over-using mods, making wildly badass soldiers, then weeping uncontrollably when they inevitably die. At least the photobooth feature gives me something to remember them by. ;)

Yep, I'm going to have to go MIA for a bit once more. I have some last-minute college stuff to wrap up soon, plus I may be getting a job in a new town and will have to move in the process. With all that in mind, my time for writing/art is going to be pretty slim.

Thanks for your patience, everybody. I'll be back in the swing of things as soon as humanly possible.

Hello and welcome to my dark little corner of the internet. I'm Vhetin1138, an insatiable artist from Montana who likes to dabble in everything from sketching to painting to writing. I'm rarely satisfied with a single form of art and often branch into other realms of creative expression. I've been practicing art since I was five years old, but only started treating it seriously in the past few years.

I think my greatest artistic strength is my writing. I love studying the art of storytelling, and my growth as an author was heavily influenced by the works of Joseph Campbell and his book, The Hero With a Thousand Faces.

Currently, my biggest project is working as the author of Star Wars: White Snow, the award-winning online fanfiction series that chronicles the adventures of bounty hunters Cin Vhetin and Jay Moqena. It's a sizable piece of work so far, with many more stories yet to tell. More recently I've begun branching out into writing other genres of stories as well. The link to all my completed and in-progress work is below if you're interested.

Most of the writing you'll find here or on my other page is fanfiction. I have worked on original fiction pretty much all my life, and I currently have plans to finish a collection of original short stories I've had squirreled away for some time now. I enjoy writing fanfiction simply because it is so much fun, and because I've received such great feedback for my work, particularly for my Star Wars and Dragon Age stories.

Thanks for checking out my stuff. I hope everyone finds something they enjoy while they're here.

Yeah.

Though can't say am happy to see my old enemy has returned. Out of all things that has haunt my dreams, IT has stuck around the longest.

Funny thing been having that thing pop up in my dreams lately before I learn this trailer, almost like a sign :P
