Since people keeping asking about this, I suppose I’d better say something. YES, the blog is all Mass Effect all the time. This isn’t because I’m obsessed with Mass Effect, or because that’s all I want to talk about. It’s because the Mass Effect vids are already done. The Mass Effect videos aren’t preventing you from getting prose from me, they’re filling what would otherwise be a BLANK SPACE.
I’m really busy lately. I’ve got personal-life stuff going on right now that’s eating some time, plus a book I’m trying to finish, plus a bit of coding, plus some other obligations.
(The book is stalled. Not because I’m unhappy with the book, but because my brain switching to PROGRAMMING MODE! I seriously can’t write fiction right now, and so I’m noodling with code because that’s all my brain wants to do. I’m 85% of the way done with this book. It’s terrible. And no, the code’s not anything worth turning into blog posts.)
I totally understand if you’re sick of hearing about Mass Effect and you’re hoping I’ll make some other content. I’m sick of the series and I’m eager to put the thing behind me and move on. Spoiler Warning costs me only a couple of hours a week to record, and the Mass Effect 1 videos were completed years ago. I’m just putting this stuff up for those who want it.
Having said that, I do try to make the visit worth your while. Even if you don’t watch the video, I try to make the blog post itself worth a read, and if I can I make it able to stand on its own.
The run of Mass Effect 3 should finish up this week. Once that’s over we’ll announce the next series.
If you’re looking for something to read, can I suggest Krellen’s XCOM game? It stars some people from this very site.
In short: The Mass Effect will continue until morale improves.
There are two major schools of thought about how you should write software. Here's what they are and why people argue about it.
This Game is Too Videogame-y
What's wrong with a game being "too videogameish"?
Denuvo and the "Death" of Piracy
Denuvo videogame DRM didn't actually kill piracy, but it did stop it for several months. Here's what we learned from that.
MMO Population Problems
Computers keep getting more powerful. So why do the population caps for massively multiplayer games stay about the same?
