... UPDATE: New at Twitter ...

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 23, 2011, 5:28 AM

::News::



:bulletpurple: SAY HELLO TO TWITTER :bulletpurple:

I'm always late to everything, so let's get right to the point:

I'VE GOT A TWITTER ACCOUNT! :dummy:


Thought it was about time I made one of my own, and of course I feel totally out of place there :laughing: - damn, you know you're getting old when it takes a while to get used to new IT. ;)

Anyway, I know many of you guys/gals have a Twitter account as well, so if you want to follow me and share some tweets in the future, I'd love that:

twitter.com/#!/Moonshadow_N7

:D

Cheers,
~Kaana

:bulletpurple: BUSY, BUSY, BUSY:bulletpurple:


Sorry for not being more active lately, but between wrapping up my old job and preparing all different kinds of stuff for the new one, time seems to be in short supply… and I'll admit that playing Dragon Age 2 hasn't actually helped with that. ;)

So I want to use this opportunity to say "Hello!" to all my new watchers and thank you all for the :+fav:s and comments on my recent DA2 artworks – I was so happy to see them both well received, and I'm slowly working my way through the comments to thank you all in person! :tighthug:

Times are exciting right now – I'm right in the middle of planning my new professional website and company logo, setting up my new home office and celebrating my new 64bit render PC… not to mention that I'm all excited about the new features Zbrush 4R2 is offering to modellers.

There are still a lot of things to plan and to consider to make sure my new life as an artist goes smoothly come 2012, but I'm getting there… and that's a great feeling! :w00t:

The website should be finished some time later this year, and I'll post the link once everything is set up and ready!


:bulletpurple: 2012 WILL BE A GREAT YEAR FOR GAMER GALS :bulletpurple:


Honestly, I'm so excited right now. New cinematic trailers for Diablo III and Starcraft II – Heart of the Swarm, video streams from the DIII beta all over the internet and Mass Effect III hitting the stores in March 2012… looks like it's going to be an epic new year for gamers like me! :dummy:

They even announced the content of the DIII Collector's Edition a short time ago – looks like the game *will* get published some time in 2012… which would be so awesome! :squee:

I cannot wait to try out the new classes like the Demon Hunter or the Monk… they looked pretty cool in the beta already. I literally wasted years of my life playing DII together with my husband, so I'm looking forward to a few more years spend in co-op monster slaying mode! :D


:bulletpurple: DA2 - MARK OF THE ASSASSIN and REDEMPTION :bulletpurple:


I just started playing Dragon Age 2 a few weeks ago. I have to admit that I shied away from it for a long time because I wasn't sure if I'd like the changes they made compared to the gameplay of DAO… but now I stand corrected. ;)

I have an insane amount of fun playing the game, and that caught me totally by surprise. Sure, there are some things that I really hope Bioware will never do in any of their games ever again (recycled dungeon maps, anyone? :roll:), but it didn't put a damper on the gaming experience at all. I think it's all the companions fault – they are such a great bunch that I'm willing to forgive the game a lot of its short-comings just because the group banter and quests are so amusing.

But no matter how much I like the game, I was a bit concerned when I saw the first trailers for the new DLC Mark of the Assassin. The new character, Tallis, smelled awfully like a hyped Mary Sue to me, and so I went into playing it with lots of mixed feelings.

I have to admit, though, that MotA was worth every single point I paid to get it. The story had it all – nice new locations, a huge amount of great new party banter and interaction, interesting quests and stuffy Orlesian chevaliers… unlike Legacy (that I really don't need to play again any time soon), I'll love to replay MotA with all different kinds of party combinations just to see the various banter, and I was very much surprised that Tallis as a companion wasn't half as bad, either, and not nearly as Sue-ish as I had feared.

So I was very surprised to see all my worst fears about what her character could actually be like coming true for the life-acting video series "DA – Redemption" that started a few weeks ago and stars Tallis as the female lead character. Tallis is played and created by actress Felicia Day (who also voiced the digital version of her character in MotA), and after watching the first two episodes on youtube… I cringed. The Tallis in Redemption looks like the smart-mouthed, sexy SuperSue no story actually needs, and has so little in common with the Tallis I met in MotA that I'm wondering if this series is actually taking place in some kind of mirror universe… :roll:

But it's not only her character that bothers me. Up to now, we've met with Qunari, templars and Dalish elves, and none of these groups behave the way I would have expected after playing the Dragon Age games and reading a lot of background lore on the world of Thedas… but maybe that's just me?

What do you all think? I know there are a lot of fellow DA players here on dA, so I'd really like to hear your opinions on this matter! :cuddle:



Well, I'll stop waffling now. ;) Take good care everyone, and let me know how you're doing! :glomp:

I'm glad to hear you're busy for a nice reason and am looking forward to see your new professional site once it's done. :eager:

I can't really say much about the DA 2 expansions since I haven't played them. As you know I'm the slowest gamer ever and I'm also stuck in some sort of gaming loop, unable to drop Origins. Once I'm done with Awakenings I'll continue with DA 2 and eventually, a decade after everybody else, I'll be raving on about how much I love/hate DA 2 and it's various expansions. This is the way it usually goes for me. Then I'll produce several fan art images of characters long forgotten since the people who originally played the game have all perished from old age. :roll:

Anyway, glad to see you're still alive. I'm off to Fuerteventura again next week, the southern part of the island this time and one of the German resorts. Hopefully I'll return with more photos of strange plants and sand. :w00t:

Looking forward to hear your thoughts about both Awakening and DA2 - I actually never finished Awakening because I got so severely bored after 2/3 of the expansion, but I totally enjoyed DA2! :D

Thanks a lot for your well-wishes, and I'll keep you posted on the website progress! :w00t:

I hope you're going to have a great vacation, and I'm looking forward to see the new photos! :eager:

Bioware is trying far, far too hard to build a world mythology for the Dragon Ages series in too short an amount of time. The Elder Scrolls series, for instance, has established and tweaked the mythology and back-story of their games for years, and something like Neverwinter Nights (which is coming out of an already long-ago founded D&D setting) also feels more cohesive, less forced and considerably more vibrant.

Bioware made the mistake, too, of trying to include a celebrity voice-- Felicia Day-- in the project (a voice who is too new to the franchise to have a solid understanding of the world.) Sadly, Felicia Day's work seems to be going downhill. The last season of The Guild was dry and scarcely funny, and her work in Redemption is even more cringe-worthy.

Overall, I'm rather done with the DA games. I'm pumped for Skyrim. THAT will be a quality game!

KaanaMoonshadow Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I was pretty sure you'd be pumped for Skyrim, and I'm looking forward to hear a review once you've played it for a while! :D

Personally, I like what Bioware has done with the DA mythology so far, although you're right that they have to be careful not to mess it up with sloppy executed additional content like "Redemption". The world in and off itself definitely has potential, and I hope they are taking their time to develop it further over the next years until DA3 comes out.

I never heard about Felicia Day until she started to get involved with DA2, and I must say that "Redemption" really feels like a mirror universe to me rather than actual DA lore. The good thing is that I can easily ignore it ever existed, and focus on the things I really liked about DAO and DA2. ;)

I still haven't given up hope that DA3 is going to be a hybrid between DAO and DA2, combining the best of both games to make it rock. The potential is still there, so let's hope Bioware won't screw it up! :fingerscrossed:

:iconapeacockpersian:
apeacockpersian Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2011
Yeah, 10 more days for a game I've waited years for. Very pumped!

I'd have to say that the mythology of Dragon Age feels very contemporary to me-- it's not an old-timey medieval hack-and-slash fantasy in which all the knights are male and all the mages are women. It seems fairly gender-neutral, homosexual-friendly, politically modern (in that the kinds of intrigue, issues of human rights, etc feel quite contemporary.)

I was disappointed that the DA2 characters were far less compelling than the DAO characters. Elder Scrolls isn't tied up in characterizing companions (it's single-player to the max) but there is enough of a sense of urgency and importance to the plot that characters develop fairly well over the course of the games. In Dragon Age, I often wonder if characters come to the plot with too much back story unrelated to the main quest, making it feel forced and artificial whenever they arrive on the scene. That explains why Alistair was so lovable; his story is so central to DA:O that his persona, and all its quirks, becomes integral to the plot of the game. Same for Morrigan. Not so true for, say, Fenris.

Is there any news on DA3 yet?

:iconkaanamoonshadow:
KaanaMoonshadow Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I have to admit I haven't paid much attention to DA3 yet. I know they're working on it, but it will still take some time to finish. The only thing I've heard is that the conflict between the mages and the Chantry will be essential to the story, and you'll probably have to try and prevent a war between these factions that would rip Thedas apart.

Personally, I really liked that mage vs. Chantry plot in DA2, so I'd love to see where it goes. But I'm all for freeing the mages, so I might be a bit biased here! ;)

I romanced Anders in DA2, and since he was so tightly connected to the final part of the story I found it added a lot of extra spice and drama to the ending, and I liked that!

It cannot compare to Alistair's importance in DAO, that's true, but I liked Anders romance a lot better. I guess I'll never forgive Alistair for ditching my mage during my first playthrough... we women can be very vengeful. ;)

I'm looking forward to hear how you like Skyrim - I really hope it will be all you have been waiting for, and more! :D

Glad your stopped back by M'lady! Congrats on the home office & I really wish the best.

I appreciate your feelings on Legacy - that was rather disappointing except for the quest items. I haven't MotA, but I did watch Redemption 1 & 2. I personally liked it, but my suspension of disbelief is very high. (I'm on my 9th go at DA2... ) So, yeah, I kinda like the game. Bioware rocks.

Legacy wasn't a bad DLC and I enjoyed playing it, but it has very little replay value for me. MotA, on the other hand, was highly entertaining... but you won't find many cool items there. Well, I fear you cannot have everything, but I really can recommend it! ;)

I had fun the first time through DA2, I'll say that. But it didn't have nearly the replay value DAO had for me. The lack of real choices in my role play made for a very linear game. It's not a dreadful game, but to me, it wasn't up to Bio's standards.

I have to admit to being very concerned about the rapid turnaround for DAIII as well. Anywhoo :P

It's always good to hear from you, my friend. :hug:

But things will get better in January again (I hope), and I hope to keep better track on my account here and posting more art as well!

DAO and DA2 are like two completely different games, and I bet I wouldn't have liked DA2 as much as I do now, had I played it directly after finishing DAO.

There are different aspects I really enjoyed in both games, so for me, a DAO/DA2 hybrid for DA3 would be the perfect game... but I have to admit I have no idea what Bioware is planning for DA3 right now, so I just hope it will be good. ;)

But how are things on your side of the fence? Sounds like you have some nice new projects going on right now! :D

I said on the forum that if DA2 wouldn't have had "DA" on the label, it wouldn't have gotten half the hate it did.

I also think it wouldn't have had half the SALES either, but anyway. :P

And I wasn't meaning to be guilt-tripping you, just saying it's nice to hear what's on your mind. :hug:

I've got an Urban Fantasy I'm working on, we'll see how it comes out. I'm trying to do some things atypical of the 'usual' UF. So perhaps it will be interesting. :fingerscrossed:

For the first paragraph you will die a terrible death. Not that the trailer was good, but I am hyped as fuck and this movie is going to blow my ovaries into space.

X-men movie do not exist. Except for First Class. Which is not even canon to the first three anyway...

Saints Row is a series of sandbox games revolving around a street gang violence. You can call it a GTA clone. But the only difference between SR and GTA is that SR is full of sarcastic, crude humour that works crazy well. I am not a fan of sandbox crime games, but Saints Row 2 is one of my favourite games. I always recommend it to people, whether they like the genre or not.

:wave: Hows it going?

I never picked up Dragon Age 2. The trailer looked cool, but the game itself didn't impress me at all.
And playing Dragon Age I was looking for some major leaps forward that just were not there.

I did get into Mass Effect 2 though, and I have to admit that was pretty fun. It was put together nicely with a healthy balance of everything you need to make a fun game. Burned through it rather quickly, but it was still enjoyable, like a movie.

I am waiting on Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim to come out in November. Size, graphics all insane.

I only have 8 weeks left before I start my new life as full-time artist and modeller, and it's both a lot of fun and a lot of work:

Creating my own professional website, setting up my new home office, buying new equipment...

Hopefully things will settle down a bit after the first months, but it's truly exciting! :D

Regarding DA2... I hear you. I totally do. It did not manage to spark my interest in the beginning at all, and I doubt I'd have ever tried it out if it wasn't for my friend's gentle nagging that I should... and I don't regret it a second, because I had so much fun playing it! :nod:

I loved how I connected with the characters on a personal level, and the new combat system just rocks! :D

As for ME2 - I loved that one, too! :D I really liked the new shiny look, and the ME universe is pretty cool. I so cannot wait for ME3 next year - Shepard and her crew are going to rock! :w00t:

I have to admit that I haven't played a single Elder Scroll game so far, simply because I'm not sure if it's the right kind of game for me (I don't like that "Open World" concept too much). Tell me how you like it once you've played it! :D

Congratulations on the new start as a full time artist.
Nothing better than doing what you love to do, and getting paid for it ;)
I have been busy, but such is life. I would be bored if I wasn't, so busy is good.

On the videogames:
I like the more open world sandbox kind of fantasy and sci-fi games, I need to free roam and explore. It is almost like having an entire mmorpg all to yourself lol. I don't like being lead along predetermines rails towards an ending, I have to explore and find my own way. Otherwise I get bored, and it feels forced. Discovery of the unknown is a big part of rpg's for me. Also decisions that effect outcomes, as well as good and evil is also important.

I played Elder scrolls Morrowind and Oblivion, and they were fun. You can get a bit lost on what you're supposed to be doing and where to go, but it is great to explore and discover. If run into areas that you are not supposed to be in, a high level creature will come out and kick your ass to let you know, like any good rpg should.

There was much that I did enjoy of Dragon Age, and there is much that I did not. I am happy I played it, 3 times through even, but I won't follow the rest of the series. I liked the characters, but did not care for the story. Felt way too generic and anticlimactic.

I liked Mass Effect 2 all in all. It looked good and i had fun playing it. It could have been longer and had more types of enemies, and there were some other issues as well. But either way I enjoyed it.
I am a picky gamer :nod:

:laughing: We'll see about the "getting paid for it" part, but the rest is indeed wonderful, and it was definitely the right step for me... now I'll have to see I make the best of it! ;)

If you like open world sandbox games, you'd totally love Fallout 3 and Fallout:New Vegas. :D My husband played those, and got lost for weeks in the world without actually following the main plot, so many things and places could be explored. And it was fun! ;)

I bet you're already playing Skyrim then, no? ;P

Took a peek at the leaked demo videos for ME3, and it looks cool already. I have the feeling that they'll combine the best of the first two games and add some nice, advanced combat mode to it, so I think it's going to be awesome! :D

I have both Fallout 3 and Vegas, they were fun.
Had this odd 1950's retro sci-fi style to it, campy yet it had character.

And sadly enough no, I am not playing Skyrim yet. I also have a thing for first person shooters so I just picked up Battlefield 3 and Modern Warefare 3. My interests are all over the place when it comes to gaming ;)
