Big fat fail, funny. Me an my brother are at war about this. He loves her, says he likes her coz of her blonde hair because blonde chicks are hot. I said come on she doesn’t look like a commander and he was all like “so?” “so?”. I guess that tells you how boys feel about this “so?” All that matters is that she looks like something they can fantasise over.
LAMO that biowares did this.
Thought you gals might like to know I was reading an article this morning about this subject and the first commenter (gal gamer) had so many dislikes of her comment it was closed and needed a click through to read. Wondering what could be so bad and curiosity with me firmly it his grasp I clicked.
So what was so awful the majority of the other readers had disliked her comment for, a balanced opinion. Here is the gal gamers comment:
This upsets me very much! Why couldn’t original FemShep from games 1 and 2 been the model for the art work? To me she is the real Shepard not this Barbie looking chick. She looks like she is too worried about her hair and nails than saving the galaxy. Why did Bioware have to start from scratch to make FemShep? They didn’t do that when they made the art work of MaleShep why are they discriminating? People like me that have been with the game since day one want to see the same FemShep as they played in the game instead of this new FemShep! What’s next they are going to get rid of original FemShep in the game and you can only play this one?! **** no!! They will lose a customer if they do that!
I am not linking to the website because frankly the other comments were fairly substandard and why give them a better rating by linking.
As a male gamer I can say I agree with this article which tends to suggest it is new FemShep’s age that is the real issue and thoroughly agree. Blonde bimbo issues aside, this new female Shepard is far too young to be taken seriously and that is both a surprise from bioware and a disappointment.
The male Shepard we see in videos, in artworks in not the standard character in the game. So Bioware did the same thing for female Shepard, making brand new artworks.
I do concur however that the one chosen appears very young, but then all of the options look young. I can see why that would be annoying, mainly because it makes little sense in the overall ethos that is Mass Effect and the character of Commander Shepard.
Ummmmm…. People are up in arms over not liking a default character’s appearance in a game where you have the option to fully customize said character’s appearance?
Don’t like her, change her.
And if you are so outraged over it, do not buy it.
“she panders to an audience that don’t and possibly never will ‘get’ what FemShep is all about.”
Femshep is all about male shep with female looks and voice actor + some exclusive romance options with male crew members.
Only reason she is so cool and everything is because the whole mass effect franchise is built ground up for a male protagonist. Almost every dialogue option and every gameplay element is still the same. Stop idolising her, I am sure there are much better true female protagonists that kick ass. You essentially just want to pretend that you’re one of the boys in these games.
