Yo Check Out My Sweet Fan Vid Thingy

I spent an embarrassing amount of time this weekend making a little Mass Effect video (dear god I need sleeeep), and posting it here seemed like the appropriate thing to do. Nothing too fancy, but I had fun putting it together. Video editing is one of those things that seems like it would be boring and monotonous, but I actually kind of enjoy it. I guess I just like fiddling with stuff, even if I did have to use fucking iMovie garbage piece of shit glaskdhljashgd.... Sorry. Anyway, here it is if you'd like to see it.

I got the idea to use that song from the intro credits to Strike Back (which is probably one of my favorite openings ever, even if the show isn't that great). If you look it up you'll notice the cut I used is essentially the same, but I actually had to make my own version instead of just ripping the audio from that, just to get it all lined up properly. The only other big difficulty in making this is that I actually haven't played Mass Effect 3 yet, so while I wanted to get at least some footage from that I had to be careful to avoid spoiling anything, which I think I was able to do fairly well.

So yeah. Video games, everybody!

SHIT YO THAT'S THE BORDERLANDS MUSIC.

But that's a decently edited video.

@Tylea002: Did they use that in Borderlands? Not surprised, it's kind of a badass song. The Heavy seem to have a thing for making songs that are perfect for trailers n stuff.

@ck1nd: @csl316: thanks duders!

Holy shit. You have taken two of my favorite things and fused them together: Mass Effect, and great music.

I... Kind of want to meet you in person so I can give you a high five over and over again.

So rad.
