Drew Karpyshyn wrote the first Mass Effect script and was heavily involved with the second, but quit the Mass Effect team midway through to work on the recently released Star Wars: The Old Republic. Posting on SomethingAwful (via Gameranx), he tells a tantalising tale of Dark Energy, species preservation and humanity’s unique genetic advantages, touched on at several points in Mass Effect 1 and 2. You might remember Dark Energy from the Haelstrom mission in Mass Effect 2, or from the Arrival DLC. According to various growly internet hintings, it makes the Reapers look about as menacing as a slightly wilted Greek salad. “The Reapers’ goal was to find a way to stop the spread of Dark Energy which would eventually consume everything. That’s why there was so much foreshadowing about Dark Energy in ME,” Karpyshyn wrote. “The Reapers as a whole were ‘nations’ of people who had fused together in the most horrific way possible to help find a way to stop the spread of the Dark Energy. The real reason for the Human Reaper was supposed to be the Reapers saving throw because they had run out of time. Humanity in Mass Effect is supposedly unique because of its genetic diversity and represented the universe’s best chance at stopping Dark Energy’s spread. “The original final choice was going to be ‘Kill the Reapers and put your faith in the races of the galaxy in finding another way to stop the spread with what little time is left’ or ‘Sacrifice humanity, allowing them to be horrifically processed in hopes that the end result will justify the means.’
my mom just gave me some incredibly beautiful advice. “do you want to feel loved? do want to feel completely treasured? do you want to feel like the greatest obstacle, the most glorious prize? okay. it’s simple. try eating a bowl of macaroni and cheese while sitting next to a fucking cat.”
Does the cat have to be fucking at the time? Asking for a friend.

"How many women do you follow on Twitter?" is a question that I asked myself today and, expecting to be a little disappointed by the results, I was in fact quite disheartened.
I don’t follow very many people on Twitter because I try to keep a close eye on my feed, something I can’t do if it’s too…
Phoenix operatives are highly skilled combat and biotic specialists. Their ability to manipulate Cerberus lash and stasis technology, backed up by their powerful skills, make them invaluable assets on the battlefield.
I love playing these SO MUCH. Shame there are only male ones.

They had to start a second post because a single post simply couldn’t handle bullshit of this magnitude.
Help me fill this in. I’m trying to keep the language dry. If you have questions, here is a FAQ.
NOTE: To those of you just joining us, please don’t just read the first three links and then decide you’ve got the full story. The full story is complex and contains multiple points of view, not…
In case anyone’s wondering why there’s hollering once again about dickwolves and Penny Arcade’s douchebaggery: skim this timeline, then go down and look at yesterday’s entry.
Not only has Penny Arcade not learned, they are fully invested in never learning. And they are supported in this by a cheering crowd. Watch the video.
Brandon Keener’s in another commercial. Looks nonplussed in this one.
If you think a woman in a tan vinyl bra and underwear, grabbing her crotch and grinding up on a dance partner is raunchy, trashy, and offensive but you don’t think her dance partner is raunchy, trashy, or offensive as he sings a song about “blurred” lines of consent and…
