1st save I had Ashley and 2nd neither but am taking over saved file 1 anyway...Ashley get round I bought the lube
Personally, when choosing between Liara and Ashley, I wanted to know where the "there's plenty of me to go around" option was, damn it.

Still, I do wonder what all the fuss was about. At it's most "controversial" (it isn't) your female Shepard can have sex with a blue skinned alien "woman".

10/10 from Eurogamer.

These are the people who gave the original Halo an 8/10 and Uncharted 2 a 9/10.

I know what you mean, the voice acting for manShep felt really flat in comparison to femShep.

Seems that means I'll be playing my Paragon Engineer in ME2 then

Can the female Shep hook up with Ash?

I never tried and I'm not too sure, but I have a feeling that Shep can only hook up with the human of the opposite gender. May be wrong about that though (went for Liara both times).

I played ManShep twice (first playthrough, then New Game+). I didn't have a problem with Mark Meer's voice acting. But I also played FemShep twice (two separate characters).

As for Kaidan, he died in my male Shepard's storyline (since I was romancing Ashley), and he died in my Renegade FemShep playthrough (not for any romantic reasons). He survived my Paragon FemShep game, though.

That's gonna be real tough on me since one of the romanceable NPCs in ME2 looks and sounds like Yvonne Strahovski.

Re: Mass Effect 2

Right managed to get this game a few days early(Ahh the joys of having access to somebody in retail),and tried to import my ME1 save game to ME2, no dice, and after doing some searching around the net it seems i can only import my ME1 save game if I'm using ME2 on the same 360 i completed ME1 on, well seeing as that specific 360 died of the RROD long after i completed ME1 it looks like I'm either going to have to start ME2 with a fresh character or start ME 1 all over again.

Although i have about 5 saves from ME1 through various parts in the game, i wonder if i can load up ME1, load in the most advanced save and complete the game from there, would that count as completing it on this console....i hope so, i was looking forward to that little feature.

We shall see, fingers crossed, just installing ME1 now.

Hell yeah! Though I have to admit I'd have a hard time choosing between Miranda and Ash.

Re: Mass Effect 2

I managed to save Ash every single time, since on my third run through the Kaiden achievement fired just after landing on Virmire. Carth-lite was so irritating. I think Carth Original was the only one I could stand for an entire run-through. Alistair sucks balls, too. Bioware needs to go with some new archetypes. Hopefully, ME2 is as awesome as it looks.

StraightShepard is a mini controversy... and while I appreciate that they stuck with making people straight in the universe (as opposed to the ambivalence of Dragon Age where sexuality almost becomes a joke), I suppose I can see why some people are pissed.

Not that I wouldn't want Gay/LesbianShepard, but this is a game where FemShep is a billion times better than MaleShep but BioWare INSISTS on using bald space marine as the cover model because 17 year old boys can't handle a girl with guns who isn't just a walking pair of breasts. Oh well.

Blame the marketing department. The reason there's practically no marketing stuff with FemShep is to preserve continuity with ME1's marketing after the multi-gender ad campaign for Jade Empire didn't pan out. As for why they didn't go with FemShep in the first place, it might have had something to do with the fact that scifi is still considered to be a guy thing, despite large numbers of female scifi fans existing, but it's more likely that it had something to do with the development process of the game, considering that most of the early ME1 stuff had Ashley's face covered up, possibly indicating that they hadn't gotten decent motion captures of female faces to work with when they made those videos.
