    Sorry I'm late to the party on posting Shepard.

    Actually both of my primary shepards came out looking almost exactly alike, not intentionally, I got to the end of the creation program and noticed, then laughed like crazy and kept it.

    Sorry about the quality, getting an even half way decent picture was tough.

    Looks cool - I also like his armor color, reminiscent of the good old Colossus X :techman:

    That combo of Material, Color 1 and color 2 works really well. It tends to look slightly better in the armor customization screen, basically it's black less there's light on it. But the color 2 has to be dark otherwise it ruins the effect completely in gameplay. Keep color 2 gray and it comes off well.

    Just loaded up a save file in which I was onboard the Normandy and the game asked me to select party members... Grunt and Miranda are currently following me around. This is the first time I've ever seen this bug. Has this happened to anyone else? It's rather strange. I don't mind Miranda following me to my cabin, but a Krogan is... unsettling.

    Never heard of that, you should have chosen Miranda and Kasumi, or maybe Samara, that could be a party. :)

    Are you in armor or casual outfit? With weapons or without?

    Hah, good point. At first, I didn't realize the save was even onboard the Normandy. It's been several days since I last touched the game, and I was just going with the Resume option on the main menu. I did think it was odd that it asked me to select squad members immediately, of course.

    Casual wear, no weapons. They wouldn't follow me out of CiC (not even to Joker) unless I used the turbolift to go to another deck.

    This may seem like an odd question, but are they also still in their quarters?

    Hmm, I don't know, I didn't think to check that before I went off-ship on a mission. When I returned to the ship, everything was normal.

    I did a little looking on the BioWare forums, but didn't see anything mentioned. You may be the first one to see this one.

    Damn. Too bad I didn't have a way to take a decent picture. That's the one problem with playing on Xbox...

    Didn't you create a separate savegame to try and conserve the bug? :D

    I didn't think that far ahead, either. I so fail.

    Technically the game failed. Don't be so hard on yourself. Although a screenshot wouldve been cool.

    Yeah that looks good.
    I just made a new girl for Engineer in ME1 because I'm trying to get the Achievements of 75% Renegade and the Turian ally and Solider Ally Achievement.

    She's Asian but pretty ordinary. Beautiful people are over rated. I'll do a Infiltrator as an Arab Male next.

    BioWare posted a link to the original article on their Facebook page today :techman:

    I especially like the rifle and the damaged armor. :techman:
