Mass Effect Q&A 
Friday, January 25, 2008, 12:19 PM - Machinima
Top–shelf Machinima director MuNansen has surfaced on Mprem to kindly take questions from the machinima community in regards to his involvement in the epic action rpg: Mass Effect.

This is a fairly rare opportunity for those of you who've only ever dreamed of working in the game industry (and don't go to the Machinima Festivals, for shame!), so get out those homemade press passes and fire away!

Has it been two years?

Heck yeah it's been, and that means my old bucket of bolts is due for an upgrade!

So I took all the major parts from my proposed high-end Machinima Machine, minus the ones I already own (or deemed close enough, like my HDD set) or don't need specifically (analog video capture for example, I'm an all PC Machinimator, you see.)

And by the Hammer of Thor does this beast roar! I don't mean to knock my old rig, it was plenty strong for 90% of everything I'd ever want to do, but this sucker defaults the once "playable in medium" Crysis at the highest settings without flaw, and UT3 actually loads before the round starts. (It was quite playable before, but the pre-loading streaming nonsense ground the game to a halt until it was finished)

My favorite part has to be the case, the Antec P182, the layout is unlike any other case I've ever worked with, and makes a lot more sense than I figure a case should make. The only caveat is the bulk, it's large, and it's heavy. On the plus side, it's got room for 6 Hard drives with rubber dampeners to facilitate silent running. It took me a full afternoon to route all the wiring, but it was really worth the effort, and it looks great. Next step is to mount the DoQ logo to one of the side panels.

The rig breaks down like this:

E6850 Intel Dual Core Duo @ 3ghz ~$275
MSI Platinum 650i SLI motherboard ~$130
2 gigs of gSkill DDR2 ram @ 800 ~$50
*Nvidia 8800 GTS 640mb ~$380
**Antec P182 Case ~$140

*I got this last year, and it was a bit more costly
**xmass gift.

Making good on my threats to flood with pictures of the office as we get her fleshed out. Not shown is the audio room, which, oddly, is the most photogenic...

NEXT TIME!!! /angry fist

Making my way up to the office today to um, uh, study UT3... At any rate, it was good to see that the posted guard is doing her job. That'a girl Kato!

Welcome to the Office!

Home Sweet Home!

Notice the awesome new logo!

Every business deal starts and ends with a good handshake.

There's crap strewn all over the office now, but here she is new!

That fancy fresh new sign will be hung shortly, and I'll update with a new picture of the final placement soon after.
