GR: "Bioware has "improved" Ashley's face to now look like an angry gorilla."
Given what they've been doing, you're going to have to be specific. Actually, what did she look like in ME1?
pretty much like me2 really
she actually looked almost identical between ME1 and ME2. only really changes were due to the engine overhaul between games.
@DarkBlood lol so true. ashley's always been ugly. this girl (jillian - http://bit.ly/u9vFCm) on the other hand... omfg i don't care that liara's blue. just look at her!
OMG I'm Scared, who gave the monkey meat???? F* Bioware
This article is like a tabloid... they find one "bad" picture and criticize it. "ASHLEY IS APE LOVE-CHILD" would be a better heading. Play the effing game and decide. Sigh, it is articles like this that make me dislike Bioware for "listening to it's fans" If you listen too much, "fans" will start to cry about EVERYTHING in hopes that Bioware will "listen" and change it. You start chasing your tail and second guessing your creative vision. Shakespeare's works would not be the same had twitter and forums been around. It would probably be more like "Twilight" or some other generic crap. You can't please everyone, accept that fact and just follow your creative vision. Some examples of "helpful fan input," and responses after changes were made: "The Liara stature breasts are too big." Bioware listens and makes them smaller. "The Liara statue breasts are too small." "The ME1 inventory menus suck." Bioware listens and removes them. "Bring back the inventory menus." "I hate ME1 elevators." Bioware removes elevators. "I hate loading screens, bring back elevators." "The mako sucks." Bioware listens and removes the mako. "Bring back the mako." Bioware listens and gives free Hamerhead DLC. "The hammerhead sucks." "I don't like the leaked ME3 ending." Bioware listens and revises it. "The ME3 ending sucks, you should have gone with the leaked one..." Bioware, don't listen to these people. Make the game the way you see fit. Listening to the fans is good, but you make games, they don't.
damn girl, lay off the frackin lip injections! there's a nice pout and then there is 'hey I just got socked in the kisser!'
She looks depressed now.
probably because she found out that shepard was with Miranda, and no longer cared. She began to eat more. I'm just saying.
angry gorilla? lol... She looked way better in the second one and by extension the first one. That no longer looks like Ashley.
Please someone tell me that that's not the final model for Ashley Williams.
Oh yeah baby, thats what I'm talkin' bout.
I dunno, I think the one on the right looks a lot better.
I have to admit, I never found Ashley to be overly appealing, and no, it's not because she shares the name of Bruce Campbell's character in Evil Dead/Army of Darkness.
I agree. I'm not saying she needs to be some supermodel or anything, but her looks isn't feminine enough to really be ATTRACTIVE attractive. She looks good, and as a soldier she kicks EVERYONE'S ass, probably even Shepherd's at some points, but she didn't look very appealing when in her uniform. At least now her looks are pretty good, though the face IS a bit odd.
She has had some bad plastic surgery.... botox ect...
More like she got beat down with the ugly stick by every single Bioware developer.
Lol, it looks like she had some work done.
The new version looks like a version of Miranda, just with a wider face and looks meaner. Maybe they will reveal that Ashley was jealous in ME2 for Shepard prancing around with Miranda saving everyone so she got plastic surgery to look just like her. ME3 will start out with Ashley taking Miranda out and pretending to be her to win back Shepard's love if he romanced Miranda in ME2.
"The fact that Bioware considers this markedly poor change to be an improvement may be a bad sign for what the company has in store for the third game". Just because Ashley looks a bit different in an early version of the game does not mean ME3 will suck.
Maybe you'd have a point if there were an isolated incident. But it's not.
Isn't it? The only other character that I've noticed a change in was kaiden and he looks much better than before
She looks as bad as Megan fox when got surgery on her face. http://cynvela.hubpages.com...
I could deal with the in your face racisim she exhibited in the first game - even the "go f_ck yourself" attitude she had in the second... but what I couldn't take was that damn poetry - seriously it was awful "Oh captain my captain" -wtf?
After all the work I put in to get her............DAMN YOU bioware. Like seeing the hot chic I picked up at the club the next morning, this is again making me question my decision making. You can't mess with stuff like this, I thought you learned from DA2.
if she look like that in ME1. Certainly not gonna F* her..
I kind of like the one on the right more... might be the hair. she looks upset in the one on the right.... but not angry gorilla or anything.
That looks like pure ass. They need to fix this ASAP!
Yeah...I'm also not feeling this. Perhaps the fact that she was my character choice for a romantic relationship in the first game has me in full-on nostalgia mode, but here...I wouldn't say plastic surgery. She looks like a completely different ethnicity. It's almost as if she's taken on the cheekbones and features of, say, Hispanic or Latino American heritage. Nothing wrong with that, but she doesn't look like the same woman. An improvement? Well that's mighty subjective. In the eyes of the beholder I suppose?
she looks alot older @[email protected] anyway can't really judge, its a single picture and from a specific angle, but that doesn't mean i'm not afraid they wouldn't mess it up after all....they made DA2
I was thinking older too...and American Indian
This makes me very worried for Miranda and Jack.
"What? Can't stand the sight of a strong Nord woman?"
Hey, I won that fistfight and I have the 200 gold to prove it.
If my girlfriend wasn't sleeping soundly right next to me I would've LOLed!!
Whoa, that's just bad x/.
That's a man, man.
I don't see where he got an angry gorilla from she just looks angrier.
but she now looks like that tranny dude who sang "you spin me right round baby, right round, like a record baby, right round." Him.
Hmm, the other screenshots dont look like that
She don't look all that bad. She look almost the same as her ME2 model if you take the time to look.
The only difference I see is the eyebrows, other than that.. she looks about the same.
I think she's been in WWE for the whole time between ME2 and ME3..The picture just showing the face..maybe till Bioware release the whole image..see the biceps..oh man..scary...she really does work out maybe..
Hey there Janet O.o
Dont like her. She use to be cute but tough. Now she jus looks tough and mean. Dont think i'll be saving her life this time round if its required
ewww. Ashley > Ashley 2.0 she kinda looks bulked up. maybe if they show the full body i can look at the more finer details.. lol
Planet of the Apes anyone?
So glad I killed her off in the first game. I can't stand that ugly bitch.
She wasn't my favourite, but I like her since she has a lot of personality, you don't see "racist" characters a lot in videogames these days. Also you could affect how she would see things later on, would she become more understandable to other races, or did you engourace her hate. Seeing that they have pretty much changed her look totally in-game, all I can think is "what were they thinking?". I don't know if this is due to that her looks changes becouse of the plot, but I liked her old look. That looks really ugly when compared to old one. Now, don't you dare touch my Miranda, Bioware *shakes fist* ^^
That CAN'T be final... it's way too rough. I echo the sentiments of everybody else here, fix that face! If they do that to Miranda it would be criminal (they'd better stay away from her backside too).
