Even though I bought my Mass Effect 3 Collectors edition before finishing Mass Effect 1 or 2, I still was driven to finish the game and to have a singular Shepard experience the whole thing start to finish.
Here is my story, and everyone, meet Alex Shepard. Spoilers ahoy.
As you, denizens of the internet, know there are thousands of available webcomics out on the web today, some of them are regularly updated once a week (such as every Monday like Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and Awkward Zombie), or they are updated twice or thrice weekly. Or their creators have abandoned them to languish with extremely erratic updates before finally being seemingly abandoned all together (like Castle Vidcons). Some of these webcomics are well made, while others are the result of a 12 year old mind with access to a scanner.
So when I joined tumblr a few days ago, I came across this webcomic that used tumblr to publish them.
It was called:
If its one thing I admire about Melbourne, its that the city has so much personality – from the people to the sights around it. The people come from all walks of life, differing niches and cultures integrating and jostling for their own personal space. Rockabilly and Corporate side by side, Zipper Pants and 2 foot tall blue mohawks walking through Elizabeth Street at Noon. Indian Emo with dyed red hair listening to their ipod behind a posh 50 year old on the train. They may not always get along, but this is what makes up for their people.
The City architecture lends so much to tell to the viewer – old town houses contrasting in front of the shining corporate windows. Brick and Mortar vs Steel and Glass. I love it, there is so much to explore and to discover. Among the things I have delightfully chronicled was the city’s illegalish artwork – street art.
Mass Effect is one of those games that comes by once in a while where the constructed universe just draws you in, a world where you, the player are showed tangible (and varied) effects on the universe that you are saving. Queue obligatory mass effects on the world joke.
If you have not played Mass Effect, the games essentially put you in the boots of Commander Shepard. There is no given name or appearance, it is up to you what first name you decide to bestow upon the Commander, it is up to you what gender, what facial appearance, and along the course of the game, it is up to the player what choices you will make as the Commander. Some of these choices will have a direct impact of how the rest of the game and games will play out.
I have to admit as of writing I have finished neither Mass Effect 1 or 2.
I know, but I am currently playing through Mass Effect 1, and then restarting my Mass Effect 2 game with the Mass Effect 1 character data transferred over to create a singular story, a Shepard that has experienced both games and a Shepard that has grown with the games.
I gotta hand it to Bioware’s advertising department or whoever got it into their head to use Twitter’s hashtag to create a War of the Worlds-esque scenario… but only this was on a much large scale. There was more interactivity, more user created content. It was an alternate reality game where Twitter’s hashtag #SolComms was used to monitor the incoming reaper attack on Earth – something that was the main portion of the oncoming Mass Effect 3 (ongoing/continuing) Storyline.
I had been browsing facebook in between submitting things for hopeful employment when I saw something that caught my eye – that an Emily Wong had set up @AllianceNewsNet as a way to report on invading activity in conjunction with the hashtag #SolComms. Intrigued, I had a looksee and set up Tweetdeck to show all #SolComms in one column.
What happened was something I don’t think I will ever forget.
I don’t know why I am doing this, but I’d just woken up from a vivid dream and jotted everything down. I don’t know why I’m sharing it with the world, but here it is:
