Mass Effect Legendary Edition changes one of the longest-standing issues with the franchise: Tali's face.
One picture is a realistic capture of one women's life...other is game photo mode running at 147 fps Trash!
This is an improvement actually. The original was just a stock photo that could be found anywhere that was slightly edited. At least they added her actual self in the picture this time.
@BlaqMagiq1 I get that a stock photo was used wasn't it actually supposed to be Tali before she changed/under the mask (I can't remember the story exactly it's been such a long time.).
Nah this was supposed to be Tali sometime after they confirmed their romantic relationship. The original photo doesn't make any real sense because her immune system is bad so she shouldn't be out of her suit.
That makes sense, cheers!
If you ask me, the replacement looks worse than the original
Can anyone care to explain to me, please, why the original photo was controversial? Really I don't know why, and didn't know there was controversy about Tali's face 🤷🏻
Because they portrayed her as "attractive", these days that is a no no, same reason they changed the camera angle for Miranda.
Her being attractive had absolutely nothing to do wit it.
Yeah, that’s not it. I remember people freaking out on ME:3 release because they cheaped out on something fans were wanting to see for two games prior. Just a random photo you could find on a google search. Had nothing to do with her attractiveness.
Oh i know it was a photoshopped image on the original, but why the need to change it so that it basically just looks like the in-game model without the visor? Why not create an original image of tali, without the armour? If anything more work was put into the original photoshopped photo lol, have you seen how bad the replacement is?
Bioware picked a random picture from google and did some Photoshop to it then put it into the game and pretended it was a picture of Tali. Here is a link to the standard picture and the photo-shopped Tali one. https://qph.fs.quoracdn.net...
Thanks Battlestar23, now I understand what the problem was, and for me it has nothing to do with beauty, and knowing this, imo its the lack of creativity in both versions of the photo
And this among many of the other stupid changes in this edition is why I am not going to get this.
I don't really care what she looks like in this photo, do i prefer the original? Maybe a little, because it looks much more realistic and the framing of her face is better, but you get that when you use a stock photo, I only wish that if they were gonna change something that they put a higher level of effort into it. The new image just feels lazy and underworked. This is a non issue really.
so it is like special edition of Star Wars? Minor changes? Why not go all the way and change the horrible ending?
Very welcome change, the absolute hilarious cack-handedness of just using a stock photo for tali and thinking nobody’s going to notice or care. 😂 Ridiculous.
there was a controversy over her picture?
The fact some people invest time into banging a character and invest emotion baffles me.
If only we could all not care about stories and characters like you, we could all live in a world of vanilla ass material to remind us to not play games and instead go play outside with people for who we actually have feelings. So many books we don't need to read without any emotional investment. So many movies. TV shows. So much more free time to not do with these fantasy worlds others create for the purpose of entertainment.
There is a difference between investing in a story and wanting to have sex with a video game character
There's a difference between wanting two characters to be romantic and wanting to have sex with a video game character.
So no video game characters in any story driven game should be able to build a relationship? Platonic or romantic?
i think you can see my point between story/relationships and wanting to have Bf and Gfs and watch sprites having sex
Can't bang that character without investing time into forming a relationship man. Which is exactly what you said. Are you religious or something lol. You've got a strange idea of putting a line in the sand for this...especially when commenting on a game that doesn't even show explicit sex scenes.
Maybe they will let me open loot crates for a better option.
