Mass Effect 2: Prelude to E3

The last few months have been pretty hectic, and the next few appear to be even more so. That's not a bad thing as being busy keeps you focused, and makes you feel way more important than if you had nothing to do. The coolest thing when working on a project as large as a Bioware game is when you reach a milestone, and you see how things are shaping up.

This recently happened, and we got to sit back and look at all that had been accomplished by the teams that create Mass Effect. I have never been so excited for people to see what we have done. E3 will hit soon, I can't wait to hear what people think.

But until that happens click on the pics for a new E3 teaser video.

Voice actors are cool

I was recently allowed to listen in on the voice record session for the cinematic opening for Mass 2. The animation on those scenes had to be done using VO temp tracks, and I was brought along just to be sure that the lines didn't stray too far away from what the team has already done.

I mention this because one of the actors we used is Dwight Shultz who played my childhood hero "Howling Mad" Murdock from the "A-Team". This definitely counts among the coolest things I have ever been part of.

Here's the chase board from my latest Schoolism project.
