Mass Effect 3: Death to Blonde Shepard

PC Gamer's Kim Richards casts a critical eye over the selection of female Shepards Bioware recently put up for public vote, arguing that it's about time we moved away from the blonde haired, blue eyed stereotype towards a more original heroine, with a fringe better suited to the hardships of space combat.

I voted for #4

all the other ones just looked like Winona Ryder with a different wig on plus Blonds are so played out.

all the super hot woman are brunettes and red heads as the blond's are just ugly brunettes with bleach.

"all the super hot woman are brunettes"


On topic: I wasn't too fond of any of the choices...

saladthieves3612d ago

This option was put up by Bioware to the community. Clearly the community has spoken and looking at the votes, the blonde (pictured) is the most popular one. Don't like it? Blame the community voters then! :)

I never said I had a problem with it...I just didn't vote because I thought all of the choices were very meh.

No skin off my back.

Reibooi3612d ago

To be honest all the choices were crap. Compared to the incredible looking characters you can make with the games character creator they were all pretty weak.

saladthieves3612d ago

Probably because they look very similar? If you look at the facial features and formation (excluding the hair style and color), they look almost identical. The eyes, for instance, look almost identical.

I still want Blonde chick.

Cpt_kitten3612d ago

such a bad choice, bioware what happened to you.....good thing the old republic team still knows what it takes to make an RPG

Cpt_kitten3612d ago (Edited 3612d ago )

love how people disagree but never can justify it

yeah a char of a dead RPG cause bioware forgot who there fans were and how to make a truly amazing game

so it has everything to do with the post

Eternus3612d ago (Edited 3612d ago )

It's because the story post post has fucking nothing to do with RPG's, its about the appearence of a character. Stop potentionally creating unnecessary arguments on a topic irrelevant to the current story.

Eternus3612d ago (Edited 3612d ago )

No, what one character looks like in a game has nothing to do with their ability to create amazing RPG's. What a single person looks like in an entire game somehow displays a companies ability to make RPG's? lol. That makes no sense.

Cpt_kitten3612d ago

are you stupid bioware hasn't been able to make a good RPG since the frist dragon age theyve been watering down there games since mass effect 2

what dose a bad char design have to do with a sell out company?

Eternus3612d ago (Edited 3612d ago )

No, YOU are stupid by just making MY point with your own post. Exactly, it has nothing to do with it. So stop bringing up irrelevant things.

Take your hate elsewhere. You are obviously very bitter.

#3 was my vote

Sleek, Professional, and authoritative.

HeavenlySnipes3612d ago

NO. That one is probably the least voted one. I want the Rihanna one!

Bolts3612d ago (Edited 3612d ago )

I will vote for the femshep with the biggest boobs. Everything else is just a random choice.
