  1. Well. that's a replay of the Mass Effect Trilogy done. That ending still leaves a bad taste in the mouth...

      Then that's probably why we don't see a whole lot of mods for Mass Effect. And even then, most of the stuff we see are cosmetic mods.

      I did a replay maybe 2 years ago... I used "JohnP's Alternate MEHEM" for the ending, as it basically was the stock ending but only destroy - and Shepard puts Anderon's name up at the end. Not the best ending but it was worlds better than the stock ending or the Extended Cut. There was another mod that made it so Citadel DLC was basically an epilogue, no references to the war or anything like that. It made for an enjoyable "after the credits" kind of experience.

      I think there was also a mod that removed the kid from the vent in the beginning.... And another where a bunch of people made 4k textures for almost everything in the game.

      Can't fix all of the stupid in ME3, but to be fair there's a lot of it. Anything involving Cerberus makes me want to put a brick through my skull.

      You ever try the fan mod Mass Effect Happy Ending Mod or MEHEM for short?

      Oh yeah, I used expanded galaxy in this playthrough, it added quite a bit to the experience, as did Priority: Earth overhaul. That one really surprised me, they fixed a lot of bugs and added cut content, added new music to the combat encounters and other small details that made the level feel a lot more potent. Even gave Harbinger some lines, which was nice!

      I used that in combination with the original MEHEM once and it was quite a nice combination. I honestly don't know why I decided to use the vanilla extended cut ending this time. But, at least I still got to enjoy the Citadel DLC. Definitely the best part of ME3 and gave us this brilliant track:

      @Mellowtron11 when it's ready ;) 

  4. https://www.pcgamer.com/cyberpunk-2077-is-delayed/ Well, I had a feeling it was coming. Gutted I won't be able to play it as soon as originally hoped, but if it means the game will be a more perfectly polished experience then I'm happy to wait.

      Damn shame, because they make great games & their consumer-friendly approach has always been well received. Hopefully the amount of tension this has garnered will force them to approach the crunch in a healthy & reasonable fashion.

      their consumer-friendly approach has always been well received

      Except that time they threatened supposed TW2 pirates with lawsuits unless they handed over a bag of cash (up to €1000 apparently). They soon realised that probably wasn't the best way to win friends and influence people and did a complete 180. They also used the horribly invasive DRM Starforce for the original release of TW1.

      Admittedly, that wasn't the best tactic on CDPR's part at all. But, I find it hard to sympathize with these alleged pirates who pirated from (at the time) an up and coming game studio who was relying on the success of The Witcher games to stay in business. Not saying they are perfect, by any means, but they are a far cry from the likes of Bethesda, Activision and EA these days, I just hope they don't devolve during this crunch period on Cyberpunk.

  5. Playing The Witcher 1 the first time before a play-through of 2&3 and...YIKES. The story is good but the gameplay is absolutely killing it for me.

    1. LDR

      The gameplay is AWFUL but the story is great. It kinda grows on you in a sick demented way. I jokingly referred to it as gaming Stockholm syndrome.

  6. On the whole, season one of The Mandalorian was absolutely fantastic. Given how divisive the Disney produced Star Wars films have been, it's great to see the majority of fans really enjoying some new Star Wars content again. Bring on season two!

      It started out good and ended up great. I hope they can keep this up.

      I was happy with The Mandalorian.  Too bad that we'll have to wait until Fall 2020 but at least that will give them plenty of time to do some great things. 

    3. Effix

      Effix

      It was awesome, I watched almost every episode twice, but I'll binge them all again in a while. Yes, quite a wait until season 2.

  7. Six episodes in and I am absolutely loving "The Witcher" Netflix series. I absolutely adore the games, read bits of the books and it's been great so far!

  8. You thought the last image was bad enough? Well...

      For those wondering, this was actually the result of my first attempt at creating a custom animation in 3Ds Max and importing it into the game. Not perfect but it's a start!

      I've been avoiding spoilers but I've heard a lot of good stuff about this series. I don't have that disney channel, but will have something to look forward to streaming it when it is available elsewhere.

      I'd absolutely recommend it when you get the chance!

      I'll look for it somewhere else. At least buy the season on Amazon. I definitely want to see it.

      Looking forward to seeing this series. Been hearing good things about this show so far.

  13. If there are any aspiring voice actors on here that I haven't work with before, then you might be interested in this. Two new roles open for my next film: https://www.castingcall.club/projects/kotor-machinima-roland-wann

  14. Joker was phenomenal. Highly recommend.

      Looking forward to seeing it later this month.

  15. Anyone else tried out Greedfall yet? Game went completely under my radar but after seeing some gameplay and hearing positive things about it (considering it was made by a very small dev team) I decided to try it out and after my first five or so hous I'm pleasantly surprised so far. It's by no means perfect, very rough around the edges but it feels a lot like Dragon Age: Origins which is always a good thing.

  16. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0mCyiD6i90 Well, I was hoping for a more elongated uncut gameplay demonstration like last time as apposed to hyper flashy marketing editing, but, damn, I am so ready for this game.

      @DarthParametric, it's currently in a box with all of my other blurays. However it (and my unopened copy of TLJ) are the only ones wondering why they aren't being watched. Ever.

    3. DarthVarkor

      DarthVarkor

      Yeah, I heard there was a lot of studio interference on it. I might give it a go because of Fincher, though.

    4. Sith Holocron

      Sith Holocron

      @DarthVarkor, the story behind the making of that movie is better than the movie. As I couldn't find a link to the excellent documentary "Wreckage and Rage", this will have to do. 

       

  17. Had to take TSD down due to an previously unknown issue. All is fixed now & being re-uploaded!

      I liked your movie mate really good. 

      Though for a future idea however if you have future plans for Mission Vao try not to kill her off in your universe she is a young twi'lek aged 14 and it would heart break us fans alike or be too dramatic for a young teen to die in the final but hopefully your able to come up with a salution to fix Mission's fate in the near future perhaps like she really escaped with Carth Onasi. or like where Zaalbar dies by Revan's hands. 

      Although technically I do say this movie is impressive I think you might actually become the best Knights of the Old Republic movie machinima creator in our KOTOR community maybe after KOTOR I or prequel is done perhaps in future you can create a story of your own somewhere taking place after KOTOR II or something like the rebuilding of the Jedi Order or something cuz I think they're is hope for you. 😁

      It's always good to invent and develop characters alike I know we're going to see our final crew memeber for Ebon Hawk possibly Jolee Bindo, however though I know you created Adrian Garratt in KOTOR II that it would have been perfect to have another created but like always yes even though it was way too difficult for a party of nine team mates, or like always you want to keep T3-M4. and HK-47 and Canderous Ordo alive as best you can. where as Carth Onasi as since he dies in the sequel of KOTOR II in the final. as you do have fates for (supposed Mission Vao), Zaalbar, Jolee Bindo, and Juhani etc yes we know that has to be as all stories must that is unfortuantly true even though we can't change it it would been nice for another character but like always you can't change everything I understand that too. 

      But like I said hopefully you can try keep our young teenaged twi'lek Mission alive since she's way too young to be killed off that would devistate us KOTOR fans but like always keep up the good work Darth Varkor and I hope to see the next one. no matter who dies I will always be your biggest fan but if you ever need extra voice actors I can always be avaliable where as only on Gmail if I was needed to play a future single character that is. 🙂

  18. The Soldier's Destiny premieres tonight in just under four hours - if any of you are interested, I'd love to see you there for the premiere!

      Sith Holocron

      It was streaming earlier but apparently there was some sort of problem.  AFAIK he's reuploading it now, @N-DReW25

    4. DarthVarkor

      SH is right. The plan was for it to be available last night after it premiered but something needed fixing asap. Should all be fine now, just need to re-upload it.

      Very much pre-alpha I'm surprised that actually showed gameplay, instead of a some mega polished demo *cough* anthem *cough*

    2. DarthVarkor

      I got some Dishonored vibes from it. Either way it isn't a half bad demo for pre-alpha.

      Technically all moved over. Now just a matter of unpacking everything... so tiring. PC (essentials first!) is set up and waiting for internet to go live tomorrow. Will be able to catch up on messages and be more active from then!
