Hello and Welcome.
The main reason for this blog was for me to post in-progress art and story snippets for the three original projects I have under way : Another World, Instant Messenger and a BLACK rose, however it’s turned into a dumping ground for my loot photos and random musings ^_^
So if that’s what you like, put your feet up and await the news, reviews, and random on everything from figures, manga, anime and my own original projects, I plan to post in the near future. ^^

I had issues with this lot of loot, one of the parcels lost my address, but thankfully it was all sorted out and there was also the fact that the cheapest of the three parcels was the only one to go though customs, I will never understand the system.
I’ve started my epic review of Mass Effect 3, but before I post it I wanted to do a quick run down of all the glitches, random graphical errors, and the like I’ve so far encountered in my 4 playthroughs. Not all of them have happened during every playthough, and for reasons I can’t explain most of the more strange ones only seemed to occur during my Insanity run.
Now I have never, ever played a game with so many glitches before, so much so that rather than be angry or annoyed every time I’ve been forced to restart my PS3, I’ve found it amusing, and it has added to the whole experience for me, however these are still major issues with the game regardless and shouldn’t be present in the final release at all. This also isn’t a complete list of every glitch in the game but only the ones I have personally experienced during my playtroughs.
Kaidan, Shepard and Liara
To go along with my review of Mass Effect 3 I’d thought I’d write a little about how I got into the game.
I first heard about the game when it was revealed that Bioware had added the option of same-sex romance for the male version of Shepard. I was interested at first but I soon forgot about it, that was until I saw it mentioned once more along with the announcement of the demo’s release. I promptly began to research the game, along with the first two instalments. I soon got swept up in everyone’s excitement for the game, especially the same-sex romance options. I was with a lot of people who wanted Kaidan to be an option, after seeing him stare at my Shepard longingly during the demo, I knew it had to be him, he was the one I wanted to romance and no one else. <3
While we now know that you can romance Kaidan as Male Shepherd, from the time I was first interested in romancing Kaidan up until the release of the game, it was still up in the air as to whether it was going to happen or not. Everyday the fans begging for Kaidan were being pulled every which way. We even got a person who brought with them false conformation as well as a made up romance conversion. After that no one wanted to believe anything, even when people began to confirm it, no one believed them, and with the official strategy guide stating that you couldn’t, everything was back to being unknown. I wanted this romance so bad, I was so downtrodden at the fact it might not be a possibility, even with the voice files and space edition confirmation. I can only imagine what it was like for those people who had been wanting this since the very first game. I was less interested in the game when I thought I couldn’t romance Kaidan, even the option to romance Steve wasn’t good enough, because I wanted Kaidan. Now I understand Bioware’s reason for not wanting to reveal the romance options before the games release, however in this instance I felt it did them a disservice since there was a lot of trolling going on and since everyone already knew at least the vaguest of outlines for the whole game it didn’t really makes sense to keep the romance options under raps, especially the same-sex ones. At times it felt like they were keeping it to themselves to avoid the controversies of have gay romance options.
It wasn’t until it was confirmed I could romance Kaidan that I pre-ordered the game, the collectors edition at that, and then the wait began. For me it was only a week but it felt like forever, I wanted my Kaidan! <3
Since playing the game for the first time I have played it almost everyday since. It has become one of my favourite games, and while I can’t say the option to romance Kaidan as Male Shepard is the only reason for this, it is definitely one of the major factors.
