OpEd: Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut- I Consider the Matter Closed.


I think we all were not expecting much from the Extended Cut given the lackluster promises given to us by BioWare beforehand and the free multiplayer DLCs in the intervening time period that might have smacked of desperation. That’s why when the EC finally rolled around, it, for most of us, if the forums are to be believed, fixed some of the most grievous problems regarding the ending. Believe it or not, those promises regarding closure and insight were really all that was needed to fix the bewilderment and anger.

That said though, was it that hard, BioWare, to put this content in? What I saw were elements that really should have been part of the ending narrative in the first place– a very targeted package designed to address the complaints that popped up most frequently and also fit into a specific budget and timeframe, not a package that really reflected a love or appreciation of the series from either the creators or the fans. A small text message at the end does not a heartfelt message necessarily make, however better it is than the insulting “Buy More DLC” blurb that was previously there.

Change Adobe Photoshop CS6 Theme (Dark) and (Light) Colors

Photoshop CS6 Theme Changing

If you are like me, you might miss the older Adobe Photoshop CS5.5 and below light themes. Photoshop CS6 has a dark theme that reminded me of Fireworks during the Macromedia days. No matter, here is how you can change Adobe Photoshop CS6 themes and colors.

To use the light Adobe Photoshop CS6 theme and layout Press Shift+F2 OR Shift+Function+F2. Each time you press it, the layout will get lighter.

To darken the Adobe Photoshop CS6 Theme and layout Press Shift+F1 or Shift+Function+F1. Each time you press it, the layout will get lighter.

Keyboard buttons not working? You can also go to the menu and choose Edit -> Preferences -> Interface and choose one of the four colors at the top of the window that opens.

And that is it! Enjoy!
