  1. It's been about 5 months since one of these has come out and I'm ecstatic I got to finish one. This member was bound to get an interview with his passion for gaming news, his rise to MoM, and his story of how he turned over a new leaf. Guys put em together for Edward Kenway! DD: "Edward Kenway, it's good to have you for an interview especially with your newly achieved status here on the site. But before we get into that I wanna talk more about you before you were the MoM and before you were even Edward Kenway. Edward, some people in the community are familiar with you as OMEGA from not too long ago. Also, a lot of people don't know this but you've been here for quite a long time but didn't become active until just last year. What kept you waiting so long and what sparked your interest all of a sudden?" EK: "Well actually, you're correct Drizzy, I have been here quite a while. I joined up around June of 2012, and was here for a bit as your average member on the forums. After a few months, I lost my account on here, as I logged out and my e-mail got hacked, so I couldn't log back in, and I was really bad with passwords at the time. I regained my account when I popped back in around the beginning of 2013, and logged in by Facebook. A decision I regret now, I started getting into the Role-playing scene. During that time, I kind of laid low on the forums, not really 'contributing' per say. Fast forwarding a bit, since a helpful Community Moderator named Church and a close friend in Communications named Bnus began talking to me, I realized what I was doing was wrong, and pulled a 360. I decided to attempt what I'm skilled at, and work on reporting on News for the community. A certain MoM actually really inspired me to aim a bit higher as well, I remember when he was wearing the pink back in the Summer, I think that was the spark that attempted to convince me to join a better crowd, and attempt a better opportunity." DD: "Well you certainly have a knack for finding some great news. I make sure to put one of yours in the Wrapup when I can. When you started posting news, did you think MoM would ever be attainable in your future?" EK: "The idea passed around in my head but I always kind of shrugged it off, my goal wasn't ever to get an award, I just loved posting news, and, evidently, that got me noticed by some staff members like yourself. But no, when I began posting, I never really imagined myself in the position, my heart almost discharged out of my chest when I read my name on that post, because I was so in shock that I got it." DD: "It was truly deserved Edward and I can only imagine the excitement! So since OMEGA is in your past now and you are now Edward Kenway, does it bother you when members continue to call you OMEGA?" EK: "Sometimes it does bring me back to my past, which is what bothers me, not the members who do it. I still regret my past, and try to leave it behind, and usually that name pushes my actions back in my face again. It's incredibly alarming when someone looks at you with the knowledge of your mistakes and your fears. But, I realize it's gotten attached to me though, so the best thing I can do is remember what I did, and prevent it from bubbling up to the top again. But I never really cared what people called me honestly, it even says it on my About Me." DD: "That's a great way to think about it. It's not like any members are trying to disrespect you with it and I feel like you definitely understand that. Does becoming MoM give you bigger goals that you want to achieve for this site in the future?" EK: "Oh yes, definitely, I don't plan on stopping at MoM. I'll still do articles each and every day, still do Events when I can, and still defend the forums the best I can, even long after my MoM title is gone. In the process of doing that, I've set up my own personal goals, to eventually reach to far lengths on the forums. I always admired the now gone Absolute Dog and his status on the site. He was absolutely legendary, known far and wide on here, maybe even more than Twam. It's a high goal, but you set goals not just to reach them, but to gain new skills with them. A goal is much less if it is not a difficult expectation. People don't expect you to reach it, which is what makes the glory when you finally get to it so much sweeter. Which is why I'm aiming as high as AD's status." DD: "How very ambitious of you. So you're looking a possibly long career on this site! So Edward, do you feel you have obligations to the site as its MoM? If so, do you feel like we're expecting something of you as a Community or are you expecting something from yourself as our site's MoM?" EK: "The obligations I feel I have are the same as though I was a normal member, I simply attempt to follow the rules and put out daily content that the community enjoys, really nothing else. Being a MoM didn't bring any "weight" on to me if that's what you're wondering, it's the same, just a different shade on my name. I simply believe that the community (and myself) expects what it normally would, to be a good member." DD: "That's great Edward! And I've noticed you haven't let up at all which shows great dedication. When you get news, what types of articles pique your interest?" EK: "Well, I usually judge by community interest. I started out doing all types of articles back in, I'd say November or December, and then narrowed it down a bit. Really I look for what the community enjoys and reads, which, at the moment, is Titanfall, which is why I post a lot of Titanfall articles. Xbox One articles also get quite a few views, so I do post them regularly as well. It's not really what piques my interest, though that does play a part in it. For example, the recent article about the CEO of Microsoft stepping down, and someone else replacing him, I had seen about a day beforehand, but I wasn't all that interested in it, so I left it to our news group to do, despite the fact I knew it would be popular news among those in the community. I go by articles that are both interesting to me and to the community. I am very interested in Titanfall, despite the fact some think I dislike the game, which I don't, It does look like a cool concept, so since I am interested in Titanfall and so are the majority of users, I will post a lot of Titanfall articles near release." DD: "Catering to your community is what makes for great news Edward and I like that. That's what I try to do with the Wrapups. They can't be serious all the time, our community loves fun and jokes and laughter! Speaking of fun, what are some of your hobbies besides being our MoM?" EK: "Real life hobbies? Well, I'd have to say I do enjoy writing poetry and doing video editing if that counts, haha. I never really do "outdoor" activities. I do enjoy free-running and parkour though, still a novice in that field. My hobbies on the site are pretty much the same lol. Write news, edit videos, work on photos, and just chat. That's really it for me, I have few hobbies compared to most." DD: "Few hobbies but some pretty challenging ones. None of those things are really easy in my opinion. Edward I've noticed that even though you've been writing articles on the site for some months now, they've actually changed a bit. Have you had any help or guidance when writing your articles?" EK: "Actually, yes. I received a Personal Message from the news group member TheCooliestOne telling me he wanted to share the guidelines with me, as well as just give some tips. Then Red actually shared some guidelines with me as well to help out. Both really did an awesome job and I know they're trying to improve my skills." DD: "Like I said, it's showing. And I'm glad you're still putting articles out there even after The Pink Age of Piracy. I know it must be a little bittersweet going from minus green to the sophisticated silver color but what does this mean for your news articles? Will we still be seeing an Edward Kenway piece as often?" EK: "Of course, in fact, I expect double the articles now! When I was MoM, I had a lot of events going on my life as well as on the forums that got in my way. Now, I'm for the most part clear, so I expect instead of the maybe 6 articles a week, about 9-12 a week! Plus, a lot more news has been going on that I've been dying to cover, so expect quite a bit these coming months." DD: "Wow that's a lot. Let's hope your new doesn't get stolen again while you're at school! I certainly look forward to that and I'm glad to hear you won't be declining. So Edward, it's that time now. Time to finish up the interview with this Star of the Community. Edward Kenway, what words of advice or tips do you have for members who wish to seek and write articles the way you do?" EK: "Well, if you're looking to get into writing articles, just know this: Anyone with a passion can write the article, I myself have never taken a single professional writing class, and rather I study the topic that I'm writing about! No matter what age you are, no matter what your writing or grammar is like, if you have the passion to do it, you can! You just have to believe in yourself! That sounded corny, but it's true. If you're having further troubles, ask for some advice from a member of the News Group! Thanks for having me Drizzy_Dan!" No thank YOU Edward for participating. It feels good to get one of these back up again. More interviews with more special members are on the way so don't you fret! I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did. PEACE.
  2. As you may or may not have heard, I announced a minigame playdate a little while back called Maestro's Merry Minigames, or MMM for short. The Dumb Marine announced a playdate also, a couple weeks before I announced MMM. And just recently, Edward Kenway/Omega stated that he too had a playdate in the works. Since fate has decided that MMM, the Dumb Marine's Holiday Playdate, and Edward's playdate would fall upon the same day, Bnus suggested that we merge the first two playdates. After a long conference filled with much deliberating, negotiating, discussions, and the signing of treaties, we have come up with... WE MERGED 'EM INTO MMEMMM! So now we have one massive playdate in store for everyone! The Dumb Marine will be kicking off the playdate with every gametype under the sun in Halo 4, I'll keep the fun rolling with minigames from throughout cyberspace, and Edward will wrap things up with some Halo Reach, Grand Theft Auto 5, and Halo Wars! Here are the important details: TIME AND DATE: 9am-9pm PST, December 21st GAMES: Halo 4 for the Dumb Marine's Kickoff and Maestro's Minigames, Reach + GTAV + Halo Wars for Edward's Wrap Party DLC: Forge Island (it's a freebie if you haven't got it already!) MIC: Preferred but not required Holiday Spirit MANDATORY Here's what will be on tap for this massive playdate: The Dumb Marine's Kickoff: Dominion, Team Slayer, Infection (Reach Variant), Community, Oddball, Extraction, Capture The Flag, Basic Flood (Halo 4 Variant), Regicide, FFA, and King of The Hill Maestro's Minigames: Mini Slayer at Portal Tower, Hockey at Kappital Imperial Stadium, Convoy King and/or Flood at Holy Gamelon Route 666, Convoy King at Koridai, Race at Holy Gamelon Indy 666 and Longbow 500 [CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS] ...among other minigames!

  4. Mass Effect 3 getting 'Omega' DLC and Bioware already devolping a new Mass Effect game. Read below for more details From: http://www.computerandvideogames.com/homepage.php? By: Mike Jackson for CVG UK BioWare has confirmed it's forming plans for an all-new Mass Effect game, which is in development alongside a new IP for "built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology". BioWare Edmonton and Montreal general manager Aaryn Flynn confirmed as much in a new blog post discussing the future of BioWare in the wake of the just-announced retirement of co-founders Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka. Mass Effect 3 brought the current story arc to a close, but of course that doesn't spell the end for the much-loved franchise. "The Mass Effect universe is vast, and [Executive Producer Casey Hudson] and our teams have plans for another full game," confirmed Flynn. "'Where to go next?' with such a project has been a question a lot of us have been asking, and we'd all love to hear your ideas." Even more excitingly, Flynn goes on to reveal that its also working on a new IP seemingly for next-gen hardware. "Both Dragon Age and Mass Effect started as single games but grew into vast universes. But we aren't stopping there," he said. "While Casey continues to oversee the development of our new Mass Effect project, he and his leads are putting together their vision for an all new game set in a fictional universe, built from the bottom-up with all new gaming technology."
