Mass Effect 3′s FemShep almost certain to be blonde

Wednesday, 27 July 2011 00:11 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The votes are piling up, and it seems Commander Shepard’s female form will be chasing the peroxide unicorn.

Contrary to reports, BioWare is yet to make an official announcement regarding its its Facebook poll, but current results have the blonde version way ahead of the pack with 25,999 Likes.

A black, long-haired FemShep with a red streak in her bob is in second place with 10,502 Likes, closely followed by one with dark hair pulled back tightly.

The only ginger of the mix is trailing in fourth of the six options, with a strange fringe cut in last place.

There may still be time to sway this thing, if you have about 10,000 Facebook identities.

BioWare has said the original default FemShep will also be playable in Mass Effect 3 when it releases in March 2012 on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but it seems this blondey will be the one to have her mug splashed across the game’s collector’s tin.

Woe.

Thanks, GameFront.

    So far everyone who voted for the blonde asked for a different haircolor. But anyway, i’m so glad they finally decided to change her appearance. Normal FemShep was so run-of-the-mill.

    FemShep is so overrated. Looks bland, sounds bland.

    Default Male Shepard all the way, baby!

    I might also add that despite my obvious dislike for Shepard’s female version, this look is at least superior to the 5 others. Those were truly horrible.

    I don’t really understand why Bioware want to put a femme shep on the cover of the LE that no one has fucking seen before. The current default femme shep is pretty fucking iconic in that we all know what she looks like, so now they just want to randomly redesign her to something entirely different for the final game in the arc?

    I know we can still get “classic” femme shep in the game, but it’s baffling how out of touch Bioware seem to be.

    Hmm, people seem to be fixated on the blonde thing, but I think it’s really just the hair cut more than anything else. It’s the least rubbish/most presentable of the lot. Of course, one could also argue it’s the most feminine hair cut of the lot, so then we’re just back to square one.

    I think it’s just that the other hair cuts (with the possible exception of 6) seem a tad too angsty teenager when juxtaposed to the more conventional style of 5.

    @10: Read what Giskard wrote @18. Absolutely agree with him. FemShep sounds like a female voiceactor ‘trying’ to sound like a tough soldier. MaleShep sounds like a Male voiceactor who sounds like a soldier. To the point, with emotion when emotion is needed.

    Also, just because Male Shepard has a shaved head doesn’t make him bland. His face is pretty much unique. Especially if you compare it to character-editor-gone-boring aka FemShep.

    @14: Lol, you really think Normal FemShep is iconic? Really? To tell you the truth, when i first tried to play FemShep and they showed me her face, i thought they were kidding. She looked like a normal bystander character you’d meet in the game.

    @10 true what you are saying at male Sheppard. However, this is doesn’t save you when it comes to the female Sheppard, she’s another Lara Croft with a blond hair !! NOW DENY THAT !!

    Sorry call me whatever you like, I don’t think a female can be captain at the huge scale of Mass Effect 3. Perhaps if they make her like a porn star, the game would sell more.

    Very disappointing to use “SEX SELLS” to promote a game !! what a shame. I didn’t like the franchise all together but I’ve seen a friend of mine playing it, that’s why I am able to comment here XD

    “His face is pretty much unique”
    jesus christ, this made me laugh. it may be unique in the game (character creator), but he looks _exactly_ like every other video game protagonist. you simply cannot deny this.

    male shepard also uses has the same flat voice acting for almost every encounter in the game, while female shepard at least shows a breadth of emotions like a real person would. as for “a real soldier”, it’s not interesting playing an emotionless character. think 24 would be a good show if jack bauer was an emotionless idiot?

    As the only one (except for 6, but I don’t like the hair) who doesn’t look like Gaara from Naruto No.4 gets my vote.

    Except I ain’t voting for shit because “liking” anything will no doubt spam my friends that I liked it and quite possibly sign me up for something, so I’ll pass. I don’t care who they roll with as default since I’ll be customising.

    @29: “jesus christ, this made me laugh. it may be unique in the game (character creator), but he looks _exactly_ like every other video game protagonist. you simply cannot deny this.”

    Why because his head is shaved? Because if that’s your only argument, then, yeah, well too bad. Shepard was one of the first to use this Haircut in this gen, it also makes sense, since he’s a soldier.

    His face is a neat combination hard and tough and soft and smooth. If you look at his nose, his lips and his eyes. It can have a lot of range. You don’t have that with the other shaved-heads in this gen. Most of them just look tough.

    “male shepard also uses has the same flat voice acting for almost every encounter in the game, while female shepard at least shows a breadth of emotions like a real person would. as for “a real soldier”, it’s not interesting playing an emotionless character. think 24 would be a good show if jack bauer was an emotionless idiot?”

    First of all: 24 sucks, i could care less about Jack Bauer.

    You say emotionless, but i say solid. He shows little emotion, but people like me can hear the difference, too bad you don’t.

    FemShep is too emotional for a person in her position. When she should sound tough, she sounds arrogant. She also talks slower and puts useless weight on many words she speaks. Is that what you call emotion?

    Male Shepard has a solid, strong voice, he raises it when he should, he’s also faster and much more to the point than FemShep. Exactly talks the way you’d expect from a Commander.

    because his face structure is identical to that you see in the picture i linked: eyebrows and eyes, jaw, facial hair and his expression.

    when you write things like “24 sucks” as if it’s not even your opinion, i realize i’m losing time here trying to argue with you. it’s also weird you’re baffled I can’t notice the difference, yet jennifer hale is the one getting awards and praise from reviews while mike meer isn’t.

    i’m sure you’re right though, 24 sucks and male shepard is a leading example of original video game characters. let’s just say i’m happy most people don’t think like you do, and are not as stubborn and arrogant.

    @33: “because his face structure is identical to that you see in the picture i linked: eyebrows and eyes, jaw, facial hair and his expression.”

    … No real need to comment on it.

    “when you write things like “24 sucks” as if it’s not even your opinion, i realize i’m losing time here trying to argue with you.”

    Yeah, i mean how can a show where the main character usually always tortures innocent people who – after a long session of extreme torture – would admit to being terrorists suck? How could it? I mean it won so many awards!

    It’s not like the series was actually a nice way to fool the american audience into thinking that torture is not only a great way to gain information, but the only way.

    “it’s also weird you’re baffled I can’t notice the difference, yet jennifer hale is the one getting awards and praise from reviews while mike meer isn’t.”

    Oh yeah, Wikipedia mentioned that she won a Spike Video Game Award for her voiceacting. That’s worth something i suppose. :)

    “i’m sure you’re right though, 24 sucks and male shepard is a leading example of original video game characters.”

    Never said Shepard is a leading example of original video game characters, but nice that you make things up now to win your argument that is actually just an opinion, like mine.

    If you compare Normal Male Shepard to Normale FemShep; yes he’s superior. Comparing Normal Male Shep to other Shaved Head; yes he’s superior.

    New FemShep on the other hand, looks actually quite nice.

    But I’m stubborn and arrogant, since i don’t give in to your fantastic arguments.

    I find it funny that someone would complain about default male Shepard’s generic design. He’s based on a real model — Mark Vanderloo — which is why he looks so much more convincing than anything the character creator spits out.

    Just because you have ethical objections to an aspect of the writing doesn’t mean it’s not well-written in regards to storytelling (plot development, character development through the way it puts characters in interesting situations). If 24 was a show to only promote torture, and that was its only entertainment value, it wouldn’t have the popularity it has. I never said 24 was a great show (although I think it is), I said that Jack Bauer as a character wouldn’t work if he was an emotionless soldier. You’ve ignored this argument for two posts now. You don’t think people will notice when you create fallacies (irrelevant conclusion) like that?

    I think you know well I’m not just refering to the Spike Award she won. If you’re unwilling to look for yourself, here’s just one of seveal articles that write about this; http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2011/02/the-voice-actors-of-mass-effect-placed-head-to-hea.html

    I find it interesting how you do the exact same thing you accuse me of doing when you take one of my exaggerations and present them as arguments i meant literally. Since you’re apparently ignorant to sarcasm, let me clarify for you what I meant; you’re writing as if you’re presenting facts rather than your opinion, it comes off as arrogant and stubborn. when you dismiss a show like 24, a tv series that obviously has a lot of followers, without even giving any reasons as to why; you come off as arrogant.

    @36:

    “Just because you have ethical objections to an aspect of the writing doesn’t mean it’s not well-written in regards to storytelling (plot development, character development through the way it puts characters in interesting situations).”

    Never said it’s not well written, but the frequent use of torture as a solution is reason enough for me to dismiss this show.

    “If 24 was a show to only promote torture, and that was its only entertainment value, it wouldn’t have the popularity it has.”

    Nope, 24 is a show that came out the right time, when people wanted to see bad terrorist get hurt.

    “I said that Jack Bauer as a character wouldn’t work if he was an emotionless soldier.”

    And i said i don’t give a fuck about Jack Bauer, is that so hard for you to understand?

    “I think you know well I’m not just refering to the Spike Award she won. If you’re unwilling to look for yourself, here’s just one of seveal articles that write about this; http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2011/02/the-voice-actors-of-mass-effect-placed-head-to-hea.html

    Great link, really, an article written by some dude, stating his opinion. Useless. Also: This article doesn’t mention any awards. You said she won awards, if you want your arguments to stick, give me a link that mentions awards she won for her performance in Mass Effect. Don’t expect me to look for it. It’s not my argument.

    “I find it interesting how you do the exact same thing you accuse me of doing when you take one of my exaggerations and present them as arguments i meant literally.”

    Really, do i really have to write “imo” at the end of every god-damn comment i write? Isn’t it obvious? Do you follow by example?

    “but he looks _exactly_ like every other video game protagonist. you simply cannot deny this.”

    That’s what you said. No “imo” at the end of your sentence. You’re so arrogant! >:|

    “Never said it’s not well written”
    You said “24 sucks”, yet you think it’s well written? You’re grasping at straws here. I think this in particular demonstrates very clearly that you’re not interested in gaining anything from discussing, other than masturbating your own ego.

    “And i said i don’t give a fuck about Jack Bauer”
    So when I present an argument for you, you just selectively dismiss it because you don’t “give a fuck”? Why are you even on the internet if this is how you argue with people?

    “This article doesn’t mention any awards.”
    You’ve already seen the Spike award. You also probably read that I said “and praise” in the same sentence, which I just gave an example to as well.

    It’s not about writing “imo” every time, it’s about the way you formulate your sentences and express yourself in an extremely arrogant manner. There’s something between “imo” and being arrogant. You’re not anywhere between.

    as for male shepard, i’d admit he’s not the worst of cases. my gripe was that someone used this character as an example of someone superior to female shepard, when he clearly suffers from (worse) issues himself. (someone said bland, and afaik you agreed. that someone would use that word in particular is just very ironic).

    Something that’s well written can still suck, son. I already stated why i dislike it. What i’m gaining here is that you can’t comprehend that there are people out there who disagree with your opinion. No matter how much praise a person or a show gets.

    “So when I present an argument for you, you just selectively dismiss it because you don’t “give a fuck”? Why are you even on the internet if this is how you argue with people?”

    Nope, you just hit the nail on this one because i really dislike this show.

    “It’s not about writing “imo” every time, it’s about the way you formulate your sentences and express yourself in an extremely arrogant manner. There’s something between “imo” and being arrogant. You’re not anywhere between.”

    That’s your opinion and i disagree with it. I hope that didn’t come off as arrogant.

    “as for male shepard, i’d admit he’s not the worst of cases. my gripe was that someone used this character as an example of someone superior to female shepard, when he clearly suffers from (worse) issues himself. (someone said bland, and afaik you agreed. that someone would use that word in particular is just very ironic).”

    You just can’t live with the fact that i disagree with you, don’t you? Yes, i really, from the bottom of my heart think that the previous FemShep Design looks absolutely bland. I also dislike her voice.

    You dismiss me as arrogant and stubborn because you couldn’t convince me otherwise? Seems like you’re the one with the problems here.

    Live with it. I have my opinion, i thoroughly believe in it, if that makes me arrogant and stubborn so be it. But keep shaking that tree, no apple’s going to fall from it.

    Oh and please post a link with that mentions Jennifer Hale winning any awards for her performance in the Mass Effect games, besides the Spike Video Game Award.

    @40
    The problem is that the topic in question is about the character Jack Bauer. You’re once again ignoring this argument by addressing/defending your criticism of the series in general. If it is well written, then do you also admit that Jack Bauer is a well written character? How would this character work if he were emotionless?

    “You dismiss me as arrogant and stubborn because you couldn’t convince me otherwise?”
    I’ve already made clear why I’ve said you’re acting arrogant and stubborn, why do you still assume it’s because I can’t convince you? You want a specific example? Someone gives you an example, such as 24, and you dismiss it as “it sucks” instead of addressing the argument itself.

    “Oh and please post a link with that mentions Jennifer Hale winning any awards for her performance in the Mass Effect games, besides the Spike Video Game Award.”
    yet another example of why any discussion with you would be fruitless. Instead of addressing the core of the argument (that a lot of people praise Jennifer Hale’s performance), you’re focusing on specific aspects of the sentence because you’re more concerned with “being right” (the paradox is that you’re lying to yourself by doing this) than actually discussing anything. You’ve seen two specific examples of both, but you’ll keep changing the criteria as you like so you can “win”.

    i realized just how this discussion has diverted into meaningless shit. i’ll read your next post and then i won’t be posting anymore. i’d rather not use anymore time on this.

    The problem i see is that you expect me to answer your questions, but refuse to answer mine.

    Discussion with me are fruitless? Have you even read your comments?

    Unlike you i stated why i prefer Male Shepards performance and why i dislike FemShep’s Performance. Then you started talking about Jack Bauer. A character from a TV-Series. A freaking TV-Series. Not even a Videogame, no similarities to Shepard or ME.

    A TV Series with an emotionless main character doesn’t work. Why should i care if the main character does not?

    A videogame with an emotionless character works. That’s the difference. But that’s not why your argument is invalid. Your argument is invalid because you think Male Shepard sounds emotionless, but i disagree, so why should i even go into the whole Jack Bauer thing.

    Think about it. This doesn’t add anything to the discussion, it makes it just more confusing.

    You make a statement and expect me to just “eat it”. I’m questioning that statement and instead of admitting that you’re just making stuff up (Hale getting Awards), you deny or avoid the whole thing. Why make the statement in the first place? Making stuff up to win an argument is just downright immature.

    And that’s really your argument? That some people praise her performance? So, since some people praise her performance, i must be wrong. That your logic? “People praise her, so i must be right and you’re arrogant and discussions with you are fruitless!”

    You’re funny, i gotta admit that.

    The blonde femshep was insult to injury. It was bad enough that all six options were absolutely horrible. They all had the same face, and they still gave Femshep that manly body from ME2. So now we’re gonna have this blonde femshep with gorrilla arms. At least in ME1 we could choose between a male and female femshep. Unfortunately, in ME2 we could only choose between male and male in drag Femshep. These six options suggest Bioware isn’t going to change that.

    YoungZero, I’ve seen you troll the Femshep discussions before. You’re very good at it ;-)
