Spotted: Quarian faces revealed in Mass Effect 3 DLC

The mystery surrounding what Mass Effect 3's Quarian race look like under their darkened helmets has raged long and hard. BioWare's Extended Cut DLC solves the mystery... (Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Didnt they already show us their faces if you romance tali'Zorrah? She gives you this photo of herself http://images4.wikia.nocook... :P

I always assumed they were humanoid, or somewhat rodent-ish. Definitely not newsworthy anyways.
Pozzle  +   947d ago
It's an improvement on the previous lazy face model. But they're still too human-looking imo. I guess I was expecting something more...well...alien.
TekoIie  +   947d ago
I assume that you have completely forgotten about their hands and legs. Besides their biology is different and their Immune system was always relatively weak compared to the other races according to Tali.

Asari look human too but no one complains there because they're 99% of the time UBER HAWT. Them tentacle heads look pretty cool imo :3

lmao.
Fool me once, but twice? This is horrible.
I already fell for the asari looking like humans, but even quarians?
NOOOO.
All the things I imagined under that mask /sighs

XD
christian hour  +   946d ago
Asari arent human looking though, they only look human to us because we're playing as a human. Asari take the form of whatever is most attractive to the person viewing them

@ Christian Hour: You ruined asari for me. I need to stop drinking with my turian and salarian buddies =)
christian hour  +   946d ago
@BigPappaPump Don't stop drinkin with em, just stop discussing Asarian dancers before everyone's reality unravels and they realize they probably look like praying mantis, waiting for a hot batch of genes before decapitating you :P

@Christian lolwut? Are you saying they change shape depending on who's looking at them?
christian hour  +   945d ago
No its more like mind control, they appear as,to your eyes only, whatever is most appealing to your race, so a krogan would see them looking more like a krogan. I think their true form is unknown, they don't actually change shape though. They aint shape shifters. I dunno if it was ME1 or ME2 but its in the dossiers there somewhere, and a few random NPC's discuss it as well. Then again my ME lore is kinda rusty, I havent even played ME3 yet, but thats cos I lost my me1/me2 save and I was really attached to my character :(
Basjohn  +   947d ago
Genetically it's completely plausible. Humans have the correct biological layout to construct tools, make use of them and have deeply profound systems of communication. It would make sense that species of similar bipedal builds and tool/communication focus to also advance to space travel.

This is why we aren't ruled by snakes and goldfish on earth.
lsujester  +   946d ago
Yeah, but would they also have the exact same face layout? Two eyes, nose, and mouth? Why not extra eyes to see around you better, or larger nostrils for smelling?

Frankly, I think Bioware just wanted their main alien girls to be "hot" because they know T&A is more interesting. Let the males be the ugly ones.
Pozzle  +   946d ago
True, but it's awfully coincidental for them to have the exact same (albeit slightly blue-tinged) faces as us, right down to the shape of their mouths, noses and (presumably) eyes. Especially since human eyesight, hearing, smell, etc isn't particularly good compared to most animals.

And hell, there are plenty of non-humanoid aliens in the series anyway. Bioware didn't HAVE to make the Quarian faces look like people. There have been some pretty creative fan designs of Tali on the 'net. I'm just surprised that after all the complaints and disappointments over Tali's photo in ME3, Bioware still took the lazy "let's make them look like hot people" approach. It's funny how (like lsujester said) the female aliens are conveniently "hot" by human standards, while the males are quite animal-esque by comparison. Be a bit more creative, Bioware!

@Isujester: Let males be the ugly ones? What about Garrus or Thane? MAYBE Garrus, because Turians look like little Godzillas anyway, but you certainly can't call Thane ugly. They are the alien beefcake like Liara and Tali are the cheesecake. And we still have plenty of aliens that are barely humanoid, i.e. Salarians, Yahg, Volus; and some not even human, i.e. Elcor and Hanar.
The Meerkat  +   947d ago
We know that the Quarians and Turians have different biology from Human, Asari ect.
They need to eat food containing right-handed proteins. While humans need left.
So I expected the Quarians to look very alien.

(but at least I feel a bit better about getting it on with Tali)
Dlacy13g  +   947d ago
the reveal was less than spectacular but atleast we got it.
ginsunuva  +   947d ago
They all look human. It's for MoCap. Well except the jellyfish, but theydon't move. Lazy Bioware again.
ninjahunter  +   947d ago
XD Sometimes doing nothing is better than doing something poorly.
TheTwelve  +   947d ago
If anybody did the romance with Tali they have a much better view of how quarians look sans mask.

Let's just say I was disappointed.

Getowned  +   947d ago
I don't mind, I kinda like how they look....ME is fun the ending is w.e but its still fun.
Kamikaze8  +   946d ago
Um, did they completely miss Tali's photo?
christian hour  +   946d ago
Apparently so :P If the writer had done even a smidgen of research he would have realised how pointless this article was, OR he did realise this, but figured they could use that sweet ad hit revenue ;)
Chidori  +   946d ago
Of course they look human. I doubt Shepard would romance anything that looked any less human than that............HAH yea right. Shepard would be pimping all over Tuchanka given the chance.
DivineAssault  +   946d ago
damn.. for a game, tali had a hot body.. Even as an alien, id do it
upallnightgamer  +   946d ago
Her. You'd do "her," and so would I.
TheColbertinator  +   946d ago
I'd hit them
Tetsujin  +   946d ago
When I clicked on the article all I saw was a black square, anyone else with the same problem?
miamicanesruleall  +   946d ago
I loved ME3, even considering the questionable ending choice Bioware made. But the one thing I didn't care for at all was how they unveiled Tali's face. Not my sweet, dear Tali. She deserved more after serving such a pivotal role since ME1. She is my favorite, just beating Liara in the quest for my heart. I really wanted her to have an exotic, alien look, but she looks like a girl I dated a few years back. Why Bioware, why? With all the talent at Bioware you couldn't come up with a more fitting reveal and better imagination for what quarians look like? That is my biggest disappointment from ME3, loved it overall though.
DivineAssault  +   946d ago
i didnt care for the direction ME3 took.. It turned into more of an action/adventure type game w rpg elements.. It was still a great game but i preferred the first two titles.. The combat was real good tho
