Mass Effect 3's Female Shepard Looks Fine, Bitches! [GameRevolution]

". . . there was a significant amount of feedback on the poll by Facebook users and fellow gaming journalists alike. One article in particular caught my attention, especially when I read the headline "Mass Effect 3: Death to Blonde Shepard", written by Kim Richards of PCGamer.com. Upon further examination, I found myself dumbstruck as she went into a discussion about feminism using an anti-feminist argument. Confused yet?

Now I despise female stereotypes as much as the next vagina-bearer, but Richards' argument is absurd. Namely because it isn't an argument at all: it's an opinion. And then she compares her spank bank to a Rolodex. What's that about?

You just can't make her look like the concept pic the submitter put up. The very fact that there are tons of other games out there, mostly MMO, that offer just as many options.

Furthermore, there are RPGs on the PSP and DS that offer more immersion other than a dialog wheel and base combat. That the one minor thing ME3 could really use that wont be in the game is a poker night.

I mean just imagine a poker mini-game that has you running paragon and renegade options.

I like ME, but you are free to play any other game you want. It's a free country.

That said, I found this comment on the article pretty funny:

"I feel like I've stumbled into some kind of lesbian militia page."

Godmars2902614d ago

Its just that the option was given and that in comparison to things that were out before it is rather limited. And then Bioware goes on and on about the choices available to you but honestly its nothing more than window dressing.

A rather shallow selection at that.

gamingdroid2614d ago

That's an individual preference, but the game has gotten more and more praise and to me it looks like it will be a great game. Looking forward to it.

Personally, I don't like those slow and to me boring RPGs. So somewhere in between is great for me and ME seems to be just that!

Sci-fi rpg Mass Effect is the king. Go to options and turn "auto-leveling" off and have fun manually applying your skill points. Even if you don't want to call it an rpg, it's still the best sic-fi adventure out there. I don't even think Rockstar could match it if they step into that arena.

so ME's Male character can also be female, and still be male somehow....and JRPG's somehow are not masculine.... fanboys >.<

I haven't heard about this contest, but after reading the article, I'm kinda glad I don't play this series.

padz12614d ago

How can you be glad you don't play Mass Effect?!

kesvalk2614d ago

ppl are stupid, that's how

Amaterasu52613d ago

good for you, don't mind these fanboys they're the one thing worse than a troll (and now they will start calling me a troll xD i see their every move because i'm super awesome :P :P)

You could make your own character last time I checked, so these articles are pointless to me.

Kee2614d ago

I could not give a flying shit. I'm carrying over my character from the last one.

ShabzS2614d ago

they should just make all those hotties my squad members and that'll make me care more to save the earth from the reapers in ME3

Kee2614d ago

It'd be nice to go to earth.... If it's still there.

ShabzS2614d ago (Edited 2614d ago )

apparently ME3 story starts off at earth... sheperd has a trial or something in front of the council about explaining his/her actions for a recent mission he/she pulled...
