That's great! I always like games that let you decide. I could never get how people played Mass Effect as a male, cause Shepard for me is female...

Male shep was so boring, femshep FTW!

Fem-Shep is considered cannon by Bioware. Just saying!

Seeing as the male Shepard is modeled after an actual real person and the female change every game and wasn't official until the 3rd, I would say femshep was an afterthought.

Don't spread misinformation. Shepard is male, end of story.

haydenlake11d ago

TrueShep is the better character BECAUSE he's not much of a personality compared to FemShep. Let's not forget the core mechanic of Mass Effect: Roleplaying. I think most who say they prefer FemShep started with the later games in the series and don't appreciate true roleplaying, just personality simulation.

It would be really unique and innovative if both male and female characters had different quests and outcomes.

Female Shepard was just a much better voice actor, IMHO. I've played both across three platforms, but I only did male one time, all the rest were female just because she was much better.

Mass Effect's roots are in roleplaying so i'm willing to bet the character of Shepard had a lot of thought put into him so that he wouldn't be so standout-ish. FemShep was added at the very end of the development process and you can tell this by the fact that she didn't have an actor's likeness until ME3. Because it was a last minute job there is more personality in the character than suitable for RPGs. Some people like this and i won't knock them for it as i too have enjoyed my playthrough as FemShep, but i don't like it when people think she is the definitive experience when not only is Shepard canonically male but he represents the series true foundation. I find that the experience is more wholesome when there is a balance of yourself and another personality in one great character.

lol! me too. Lesbian sex is just so hot in haha.

It's because you don't appreciate Mass Effect in the way it should be appreciated; a good roleplaying game. FemShep is anti-RPG (no thanks to BioWare tacking the female option on late in development), but a good character for a single-player action adventure nonetheless.

I do appreciate the choice but i'm wondering how they'll address the premise of a female warrior in Ancient Greece. It's like female soldiers in non-modern conflicts.

I'm so excited about this! Looks like she gets her own story, instead of bouncing between in the same way that Jacob and Evie did. Definitely playing as Kassandra!

saniyaga12d ago

I'll be playing as Kassandra as well!

ZombieGamerMan12d ago

I'll be playing as Alexios because everyone is gushing about Kassandra

Rebel much lol

glad there's a choice. . people are getting way to emotional about inclusion nowadays. It's almost like people would moan less if they included a hedgehog over a female. . .
