A couple of screenshots have popped up online today, providing a first look at Female Turian in the Omega DLC, for the multiplatform title, “Mass Effect 3.”
I'm the only one feeling insulted by this, aren't I? Three games, post three games, and they're just now getting around to showing a plot non-critical female from another species.
To be fair though, it was a massive artistic challenge to create a female turian. They've thrown the idea around since the first Mass Effect, as evidenced in videos released over the past few years, but weren't able to work out how to convincingly portray a female turian. I think they did well though, I like the design.
I wouldn't judge it to harshly. Mass Effect is really the only one of a few Sci-Fi franchises that defines more than one or two species with female characters. Sure others have female characters of different species, but they never show up in a video game.
No one remember the fact that we never saw a Krogan female til ME3? As they were all precious and 'In-hiding'....Wonder if the same reason is given for Turian women, lol.
Are you sure about that? Maybe it's just that to most humans the sexes of some races seem identical. Most people can't identify the sex of most animals if they can't see the naughty bits so why should it be any different for aliens. Especially ones that wear clothes.
Or maybe, just maybe, between things like this, not immediately introducing female aliens, standardizing architectural designs and modifying a stock photo for a character reveal, they were creatively lazy or overly cheap. I mean this wouldn't be that big a deal to me if this was happening for ME4, but this is post saga DLC. @DeadlyFire: No, its because of things like this, ME3's original ending, introducing NPC races into multiplayer as playable character, that the series should be harshly judge.
It looks like shes wearing a mask.
But does she have flexibility?
okay instructions on how to shag her please!
you need to get the reach.
Godmars Salarian delatros and alternative council member were female. Urdnot Bakara for the krogan. Of course needless to say we have seen quarians (not touching the photo issue), and by now asari are a moot point. Still, having said that, one would have expected to see a few during the parven mission. Nonetheless, It will be interesting to get a female perspective on the turian meritocracy if narrative allows. Will definitely be bringing Garrus along for the craic!
Im taking Garrus to meet this babe.
It's gonna feel so weird seeing a female Turian for the first time, they wait three games to show us one, i mean the female krogans at least had an good excuse for us not to see them, but i'm glad they did it anyway.
The turians like to keep their females at home :D
In the kitchen.
I fucking love steak.
A bit disappointed that they didn't get to do female turians from ME2 but im glad they finally did it. better late then never i guess. Hope this last DLC comes with vehicle gameplay as well
Better not show Capt Kirk!
SO cool! I can't wait to play it!!!!!
Now if only they put that much effort into talis face.
