Marron Marvel "So, I read this opinion article over at PC Gamer criticizing people who are voting for the blonde female Commander Shepard, and I have to wonder if the author is creating a ruckus because of a desire for pageviews, due to boredom, or because of sheer inanity -- or some combination of the three. For those that don't know, the female Commander Shepard will be on the box art for the Mass Effect 3 Collector's Edition. This is the first time the female Shepard will appear in artwork promoting the game, so EA decided to let the fans vote for her new look. Apparently Kim Richards is outraged that more people chose the blonde Shepard over the other five other candidates. "Please, boys and girls, I implore you. Don’t vote for Number 5. Vote for diversity. Vote for originality. Vote for personality," she implores at the end of her article. I look at this, and all I can think is: really? Really?"
