So I follow the infamous Reg, daughter of the mom who’d play numerous Bioware video games. This subsequently led to the creation of Bioware According to Mom, which has been a fantastic journey to many, including the mom getting some fame in Mass Effect 3 when the Citadel DLC came out.
Anyways, Reg’s birthday was today and I saw a post of “all I got for my birthday was a discount code to buy a mobile game.” I figured the Internet space could do better, hence I cooked this up!
References include Bioware mom quips including the “krogers” working at Krogers (her pronunciation of krogans), Garrus getting stuck with the name Beans, and lastly getting her hands on a babby kroger (that’s how she spelled it.)
Suffice to say Reg loved it. Glad to be of service. Swing by their blog or follow on Twitter for more shenanigans!
Bioware According to Mom
This was certainly a surprise. If you remember my last post here, I had done a piece for Moon Studio’s #OriValentine giveaway. Turns out I actually won a prize! They sent it out in the mail for me, which arrived a short bit ago.
Until I got these, I had no idea merchandising for this game was really a thing. Stuff’s pretty cool; snazzy pin, little napkin packet and a spiffy journal. Mom actually likes this journal a whole lot, and likes the character art on the front!
I also got my name listed on their site, which is also pretty amazing. A big thank you to you guys, I’m glad you liked my doodle of Ori going giddy over coffee.
I almost missed this one, but was browsing Twitter one night when I saw that Moon Studios were having a giveaway, in which they’d hand out some Ori-themed merchandise based on who submitted artwork. They’d pick some they like, then give those winners a prize. I never tried entering my art in contests like this (I always thought I was subpar and kind of still do), but I just decided to try something and get a piece out there.
This was the final result. I wasn’t too happy on the background but the overall piece was all right. I definitely liked the concept! So I entered it into the competition. We’ll see how it goes.
EDIT: Wow. I actually got selected and won a prize! This is just mind-blowing and completely floored me. I never expected to actually win something out of this. Thank you so much, Moon Studios. You guys are awesome!
You can check out my prize here. I also got listed on the developer’s site as a contest winner!

Last year I got to interview William from PetiteGames about his projects. At the time a comic was supposed to accompany the interview (making light of the abrupt piano “death” sound in Midnight) but was lost due to a corrupt PSD. Due to some hardships in 2017 I never got around to drawing this myself, so I asked my friend Christina for help with this. She was glad to, and we got finally done at the beginning of the year.
Do enjoy, and keep an eye out for William’s stuff on the Nintendo Wii store!
During my offline life, I got to go to Yamacon 2016 (which happened to be under my nose all this time!) There I got to meet Charlet Chung, no other than D.Va’s voice actress from Overwatch. This video is a result of her awesome skills making me a custom voicemail!
Week 7’s montage is up! A lot of POTG’s in this one. This will be one of the last of Saving People’s Behinds for a good while, as I no longer used Fraps to record my footage after October 1st.
Week 6’s montage is up! At this point I’m playing Mercy 75% of the time, not quite a Mercy main but getting there.
Also due to a recent conversation with my brother (Robuster), he’s allowing me to post his POTG’s on my channel as well. So you’ll see a few in this video, but I’ll upload his separately from now on.
Apologies if the blending isn’t too smooth, I’m not at my regular facilities this November.
First time recording a “whole match”, which ended in disaster because of that dumb DDoS attack that kept happening. Nevertheless, we won!
This is an important match for me because its the only time that I had two strangers that didn’t know each other linked up. Every time I play in a group its pretty much a group of 3, or if its 4, the 4th person is someone that someone else knows (basically 2 pairs of people playing in that regard).
Week 5’s montage is up! My skill ramps up a bit and I start getting POTG’s as Mercy. It’s around this week I also start playing support a lot more. Videos started to take better quality with editing, too!
