The interview was recorded live last Wednesday, December 12. We talk about Starcrossed, my creative process, and the new book Starcrossed: Volume One, now available online in my store. At the end of the interview we dive in and dissect the new Man Of Steel trailer.
You can listen to the show on Where Monsters Dwell on iTunes.
Oh, and if you haven’t seen it yet, here is the Man Of Steel trailer.
The latest episode of The Citadel Cafe with myself and Paton Francis is out. We talk (the BBC series) Sherlock, and the trailers for Star Trek Into Darkness and Man Of Steel.[audio:http://media.blubrry.com/thecitadelcafe/www.thecitadelcafe.com/wp-content/uploads/tccaudio/The_Citadel_Cafe_046_Dont_Hug_Anyone_Too_Hard.mp3]
Cool Thing Thursday No. 5
On the latest episode of The Citadel Cafe… I found this super cool article that outlines the process behind this hand painted one-hundred-and-fifty-foot-tall mural of the thirteen dwarves from The Hobbit on 315 Park Avenue, South in New York. It is an absolutely epic undertaking. The iris of just one of the dwarves is larger than a human head! Quite an adventure.
People die. More to the point, people die in Mass Effect. Most players experience this in Mass Effect 1 when Wrex dies. I had enough Paragon points to talk Wrex down and keep him alive. I’ve heard heartfelt stories from other players who were really attached to crew members who died, specifically in Mass Effect 2. Having this bit of information, I confess I cheated a little and kept my two favorite characters, Garrus and Tali’Zorah, close to me during the final mission. I didn’t care if Jacob or Miranda took a Collector beam to the chest. I liked Mordin though. I found him entertaining in a queer useful sort of way. Unfortunately, the poor loquacious salamander-scientist didn’t make it.
NO SPOILERS PLEASE!
Progress: Probably about 60% of the way through Mass Effect 3.
