Out with the old, in with the old - Casey Hudson is back at Bioware


The GM of Bioware Edmonton Aaryn Flynn has decided to move on and Casey Hudson is returning like the proverbial prodigal son to fill the GM role.

Here's the official word:

After 17 years with BioWare, today I announced that I’ll be leaving the studio at the end of July, and that Casey Hudson is returning to Edmonton to take on the role of General Manager for BioWare.

I joined BioWare in Edmonton right out of University. I was privileged to get a chance to join a group of people working on the coolest, most creative things I could imagine. Growing up at BioWare, the events in my life are intimately intertwined with events at the studio. I got married just after we finished Neverwinter Nights. My first son was born while we were wrapping up Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, while my second son was born right after Jade Empire.

From my first day until now, I have learned much, met great colleagues and friends, and got the chance to help give players some truly incredible experiences. Every time I think I’ve found a favourite game making experience, we start something new and somehow find fun and satisfaction in the new challenges.

I have been contemplating changes in my own life for some time, but when I heard that Casey had confirmed he was up for the task, I realized the opportunities before us. I will be working with him over the next couple of weeks to help catch him up and do my part to set him up for success to be the best GM he can be.

In closing, let me thank our players for everything they’ve given us over these many years, and to say from the bottom of my heart how important you are to me and the rest of BioWare. I have gone to work every day knowing that I am fortunate to have all of the opportunities I have had at BioWare because of you. Doing whatever I could to help our developers create some of the best games in the industry for you all has been the most humbling experience of my life. Now, I’ll be playing BioWare’s games in the future from an exciting new perspective – yours

Aaryn

Hudson left after a brilliant turn with Bioware but eventually left with a big black mark against his name for the much maligned ending of Mass Effect 3.

We know he's good but hope he's learned the art of consultation...

This Peebee cosplayer looks better than the in game version!

A keen group of cosplayers got together to form Ryder's squad from Mass Effect Andromeda and the team did an amazing job.

Their version of Peebee is amazing and arguably looks even better than the in-game version of the Asari character!

We love that shadow across the face, it gives Peebee a more serious tone that she generally exhibits in game! Have you played it? It's a lot of fun, despite some poor press.

Check out more of this cosplay 'Twin Flame Fabrications' on their Facebook page.

Ironman's Ironettes take off like a rocket

Ironman and the Ironettes
The Japanese have a lot to answer for.

Panties from vending machines for example.

But we'll let everything slide because the Japan 2011 Comic Con has given us this wonderful dance demonstration by the Iron Man's Ironettes. Basically it's an excuse for a whole lot of exy women to run around in red bikinis exalting the big Iron fella's glories.

We'll take your sexism Japan, thanks.

How many dudes you know roll like this? Not many, if any

Turns out the Ironettes from Ironman 2 movie have inspired a whole legion of sexy girls to dress up as Tony Stark's personal cheer leaders and show the love:

Is that Ironette on the left your sister bro?

Ass you were ladies

Cheers Tony!

Is this the sexiest Cortana cosplay ever?

This might just be the sexiest cos play effort to emulate the beauty of Halo's Cortana ever....

Some crazy scary Bioshock cosplay pictures


The Bioshock series of games has given cosplay fans the opportunity to dress as several of the characters found in the game. The clear winning cosplay choice is adorning a Big Daddy costume or a Little Sister dress. Those girls in game were pretty evil but turned out to be sweet little dears in the end.... right?
