Re: Mass Effect 3

In other news, if for some reason you haven't listened to it yet and you need additional input for you Mass Effect-y pumped-upness, here you go:

Quoting sidoshi over at NeoGAF:
I looked around and couldn't see this mentioned, so kill me if it was.

Today on Twitter, David Silverman (marketing director at BioWare) said these things:

Quote:
"@SilentKittyK the CE of #ME3 has both #FemShep and male Shepard on the box."

"@ChrisCrowdly there will be a #FemShep trailer. We actually had a meeting on her yesterday. We are working on the look now."
YES.

Well it took them long enough.

I take it from that though that they're not just going to go with the default femShep look? If they come up with something new then they'd better include it in the game's presents.
Seriously though, did it bother anyone else that Bioware's trailers for DAO bore next to no resemblance to the actual game? Even recently with DA2 there were things in the trailer that would have been great in the game but oddly absent. Probably not something worth worrying about as the ME trailers have been fairly representative of the final product. Though I do wish they'd kept the hyper-detailed galaxy map seen in some of the early ME gameplay footage.

Re: Mass Effect 3

It's the Tali fans that I'm more worried about. If they set out to please them then her environment suit in ME3 will be completely transparent and she'll only be wearing a thong under there. And they still wouldn't be happy unless thong-Tali was also on the boxart.

Re: Mass Effect 3

You know I'm not sure if I actually want to see what Tali looks like under that or not. On the one hand I'm of course naturally curious as to the quarrians' true appearance but on the other...well it's like the old "monster scratching at the door" analogy. Nothing they come up with could possibly satisfy *everyone's* expectations and in a way it's best to just leave it to the imagination.

Re: Mass Effect 3

If they do decide to show her, I hope they don't go the beautiful space-elf route that some fans are suggesting. Personally, I'd prefer it if she had black, wrinkled, leathery skin with big yellow teeth, or something. That way it would really put the Tali fans who act all smug because they chose her based on her personality to the test. If they're as enlightened as they claim to be then they wouldn't care if she looked like a 3,000 year-old mummy.

I hope they never reveal what quarians look like. Partly to shut the Tali fans up, partly because I don't really care enough about the quarians to want to know what they look like, and partly because I think not knowing makes them more interesting than knowing would.

Re: Mass Effect 3

They should show her eyes only or something though she can't be ugly cause Sheppard takes her mask off and goes to town

Tali goes to town before Shepard really reacts at all.

Re: Mass Effect 3

I think it's pretty much a foregone conclusion that whatever they come up with (assuming they come up with anything at all) she'll be cute.

While I wouldn't say I'm as vocal or as enthusiastic as some others, I defiantly count myself as a Tali fan. Partly because she was the only Quarrian we saw in ME1 and that by itself made her more interesting but she was also the only character other than Ash who didn't seem to whine and get all angsty over everything. Ash may have been a little closed minded (though I wouldn't label her as racist as others seem to) at least she had a firm point of view.

My preference for Tali also had something to do with my first playthrough being as a Soldier so I always made sure I had squad mates with tech and biotic powers to balance things out...which consequently meant I spent most of the game with Tali and Liara in tow.

That would be awkward, especially if one *ahem* ingested.
