lol WTF She doesnt seem to fit the role at all
As someone has already pointed out- default female Shepard has always been a redhead. So basically, this doesn't fit -your- perception of the role. I prefer redhead shep over stereotypical blonde shep any day.
the problem is that when you look at the 2 next to one another, it looks like they stuck a 15 year old girls head on a womans body compared to the male shepard we have known since the 1st game hair color doesn't really matter to me since we can change anything and everything about our specific Shepard, but BioWare could have done a better job in making her look older, you can see that male Shepard has "grown" older through each game, he just looks like he has been through a lot, female Shepard looks like she got younger,
I hate the default charactors my self i always make my own,my shepard looks like a real comander of a ship and he looks smart,yet like he could kick anyones ass he a paragon :D lol all my friends say my charater looks better then the top rated face's on www.masseffect2faces.com (some one did a real cool fem-shep a Samus Shepard i use it for my fem shep) stil i hope the character creator has a huge improvement.I know they said it has been improved but i want to try it and see it for my self! i love making my own charactor,i really don't care for the punky/rough look..to me the default looks like a punky soilder and not a comander or anyone that should be leading a team like that.
redheads are hot...blondes are stupid and brunettes are way too cocky.
I don't mind the red hair, but she has a face as rough as a badger's arse.
I think both DaThreats and dreamtheater are right. Her punky teenage look doesn't fit, and yes, a redhead is better than a stereotypical blonde. I'll just be playing as male Shepard like usual.
You really, really, really need to play as femshep. It's like a whole new game. Mostly because her voice acting is REALLY good, and really drives home just how awful manshep's voice is.
I heard FemShep's voice acting was superb. There's just too much to do and see in these Mass Effect games. Who know if I'll get around to playing as FemShep?
The real question is does the carpet match the curtains?
Well, but you know, with a rusty roof comes a wet basement :P
i don't play many games where the lead character is a female because its always the same story big boobs short clothes the latest tome raider has kind of gotten it right i don't think devs have gotten the females character rights there is a lot of room for improvement look at bayonetta all the tomb raider games heavenly sword was good in a lot of way i guess
firecrotch Shepard to the rescue
So female Shepard has no soul...
You're thinking of the lesser species "ginger" Redheads are firey vixens.
"but if the development team at BioWare holds to their word, then there’s no doubt that Mass Effect 3‘s female Shepard will be a ginger." Also, the picture at the top of the article had freckles. So sadly, she is a ginger and not just a redhead.
I thought redheads and gingers were the exact same thing? When did this change?
lesser species lol who the hell are u too say that, id beat the shit outta you!!!
Genetically pale skin and red hair are both recessive traits, while darker skin, brown eyes, and dark hair are dominate traits. For examples albinos have very pale skin due to the lack of malign pigmentation and red hair. All races (blk, wht, latino, mideast, whatever) are all susceptible to showing "markers" for these recessive traits. It's all in the genes, the thing is it is hard for recessive traits to be expressed because in roughly 1:4 chances it would show. I wouldn't go as far to say "gingers" or redheads are a lesser species (thats just stupid) but they're just expressing the recessive traits in their genetic makeup.
Your avatar has no soul.
Redheads gives u nice headjobs as well
"Better dead than red!" All kidding aside I am a fan of the red hair:)
Stupid thing is, the original FemShep/Default Female Shephard has Red Hair too. Such a big waste of fucking time for nothing.
<- is all i have to say
It's like get to know the "new" FemShep again in Mass Effect. Male Shepard just keep his same old look and hairstyle. Why not give the new FemShep a bright flaming red hair? Will be great playing as a Renegade. Can you imagine how much cooler if both male and female Shepards appear together as clones? Harbinger must as well turn 180 degree around and leave them along. For the story, it's easy. Cerberus took the original Shepard's DNA while Shepard was being rebuilt in ME2 and grew another copy with opposite gender for Cerberus use (like Miranda's father) but being Shepard, eventually both will join forces together.
Alternatively, the destruction of the reaper ship tear a hole through another dimension where the another Shepard falls through (male if you're female, renegade if you're paragon, and vice versa).
Not that the default appearance really make's much difference. That's one of the best parts of Mass Effect - the character is who you want it to be. Whoever plays the game as the default is missing out on one the games best features, imo. Least now female Shepard actually has a default model. In previous games, there was no default Femshep, just presets. She didn't receive her own default model like the male version did. Even if she didn't get the hair style or color I'd prefer, thats the great thing about it, I can totally change it if I ever play Femshep 8)
Male Shepard was based on a real person. There's still no real person that female Shepard is based on. At least now she has a default marketing model. Bioware said the FemShep will be on the Collector's edition but what about trailers and marketing ads?
I believe a tweet confirmed, a while back, that the Femshep will be getting her own trailer. This is the tweet: http://twitter.com/#!/dsilv...
Do the drapes match the carpet?
But do the drapes match the pubes?
Wow fluffy. You just completely missed what new leaf meant by carpet huh?
forget about the carpet look at those pixal boobs Mmmmmmm pixalated :O
kinda reminds me of hayley williams but with more freckles.
Guys I wouldn't call her ginger, as its a racist remark against the Celtic origin. So she a nice red-head.
I am of celtic blood and I don't take offense to the term ginger at all... Its not even near a racist term, red hair isn't a race and not a celts are red heads, my mother for example had hair as black as a panther...
Red hair comes from Celtic roots, right? The celts are a race right? So if a person using "ginger" as a derogative term makes the person a racist. This of course depends if the person takes it as an insult such as your self. But not everyone is such back boned as yourself.
Zero, Are you.. a red head?
gingers are not a race IDIOT!!
WHAT? I wanted blondie :(
I wanted an Asian Shephard.
i wanted a black shephard with blonde hair
Unfortunately the industry does not believe a black female is "worthy" enough to be a lead female character. If you look at the original 6 Shepards we had to chose from, only 1 of them could have passed as an African-American female while the rest were more so Caucasian. Welcome to the 21st Century I guess.... Personally, I am glad that I am able to create my own Shepard because I am tired of playing as white women and white men in videogames. It really gives a numb experience after a while.
Meh... I still like the default from ME1 and 2. Look... I'm all about doing things different and going my own way. When people ask me if I take the road less traveled I always give them a perplexed look and ask, "there are roads?" So I customize the crap out of every character I play... except FemShep. The best I can explain it is that the default femshep from ME1 and 2 just looks like a defacto female military commander. She's a little Elenore Ridley with a whole lot of (younger) Cathryn Janeway. And as I played the game she just seemed more and more to fit the voice and behavior of the way I play. Even when I went renegade occasionally not for an instant did she seem to be... faking it. When I played with male Shepard... honestly... when he tried to come off as sensitive I wanted to smack the guy for being a freaking player and when he tried to be a hard ass or be inspiring I wanted to smack the guy for being a freaking poser... cause I knew better. I'm suprised my eyes didn't get stuck from the number of time I rolled them during my two male shep play throughs. And while I agree hands down that redhead is the way to go for the role... this new one barely looks old enough to me to be commanding her bootlaces, much less an elite crew of galaxy savers. *shrug* so long as I can still import my femshep face from ME2 I'll be happy (though I would like the facial scar she had in ME1 back... they kinda took that away when Cerberus "fixed" her... like I said... gotta add my own touch some how).
She looks beautiful !
So long as I get to choose the other Shepards in creation mode I'll be happy.
A fire crotch?
maybe they should just put triss merigold as shepherd. 'triss shepherd'- sounds ok..
ugh.. gamers have no taste.... -___-
Um. Felecia day?
Maybe its just me but the red hair on.that model makes femshep look like the lead singer of my chemical romance...
I was torn between blonde and the dark hair. Doesn't matter now I guess. I don't play the femshep as I find her voice actress to be not nearly as good as the maleshep.
Hopefully this will be the last we hear of FemShep until her trailer comes out, but I won't be surprised if we soon see an article like "Why redhead FemShep is an insult to female gamers by Mary Ann Summers" or something similar.
i was thinking the same thing!
I like it. The new art they just released is awesome. I don't really mind to much because I play male Shepard.
Way to screw up the story plot now every time you think of the first two games it's gonna feel out of place since shepard was a male character in the first two games lol!
uhhh...guess you never played Mass Effect at all.
Still don't understand why they needed to change the default.
There was never a cannon femshep.
She looks like Amy pond
I liked the blond...
Action-hero red-head chick. What's there not to dig? Besides the part where she has no soul. lol
I don't get why so many of the femme shep's hairstyles have such greasy looking sweaty hair...
I voted for the red head, because for one I prefer redheads and two it was the closest to the previous default. I just wish they didn't make her look 18...
So is it coincidental that the new character's last name happens to be the same as the last character's last name or is the new character related to the last character or what because they need to explain how this character's story ties into the main story of the series!
wait...are you asking if the female shepard is a new charator ?..if so then,no you have a choice to play as a male or female in all mass effect games there is no relation or any thing like that they are the same charactor just male or female nothing really changes but the voice acter and romance options.Mass effect is really worth it,it's a great game all around.
Whoa that's totally what I voted.
So is she a horny type of girl?.. LOL
Well redheads are hot so...
Gingers RULE thats why the redhair got picked!!
I think the red-headed female shep is fine. My male Shepard has hair at least.
