    I only punched her once.

    The paragon /renegade responses are totally better in the second game.

    That pun in the third panel is pretty outstanding.

    I'm picturing her striking with her nose. It looks a bit sharper in panel 3 compared to the other two.

    Funny thing about this FemShep they've chosen to put on the box. Save for using mods, I highly doubt you can get your character to look anything close to that, most likely turning out some horrific abomination sin against god that results every time people use character creater.

    ummm

    they're adding a new default femshep who looks pretty much exactly like that

    streetwalker eyeshadow and all

    Sorry, I meant characters created thus far. I'm not going to re-roll after carrying this femshep through two fully completed games just because now they finally see fit to make one that doesn't revile the stomach and causes horses to scream at the very sight of her.

    I fiddled with the settings on my femshep until I found a combination that resulted in one I'd want to bone.

    in retrospect, perhaps that's a strange way to go about designing a character who represents your own will.

    I do enjoy that reporter lady is calling her "FemShep" in game.

    For those of us who never played any Mass Effect and didn't pay attention to this thing until just now, apparently here were the 6 choices.

    Aren't they all wearing eyeshadow?

    I don't understand this complaint. I've never had any difficulty in ME1 or 2 making decent looking characters.

    I'm glad you pointed out there was a pun instead of explaining the joke, giving me a last-ditch chance to salvage this.

    I've always just made the ugliest bulldog faced looking Shep I could with the character creator.

    Come to think of it, I basically do that for all games.

    You know, I rarely create male avatars in games. I have roughly a dozen wow toons and maybe 3 of them are male.

    But when I started playing Mass Effect last year was surprised to see it was even an option. It didn't take me long to decide to stick with a male Shepard. To this day I'm not sure why, but going with a female avatar just didn't seem to fit right.

    If I make another character though it will probably be female.

    I voted for 5. almost instantly regretted it but then realized it was ahead by like 20,000 votes so mien didn't really make a big difference.

    Skin and eye color too, but there are also a few other subtle changes.

    1 and 2 have identical face structure, but 3's head is a bit larger, and there are some small jawbone angle alterations later in the loop.

    Reading Tycho's newspost, I'm kind of amazed BlondeShep provoked such hatred.

    How the hell does having medium-length blonde hair suddenly mean you can't be a badass woman?

    Also, shouldn't the comic read "blonde" instead of "blond"?

    She's really not. The whole "Jennifer Hale/Femshep is so much better" thing is getting so damn tiring to hear.

    They're both fine.

    Yeah, it's rather hilarious that the people screaming about the sexism loudest about this are being the most sexist themselves. It's not like the rest of shep changes at all depending on what the face is: She still has a fairly muscular shape and such. AIso I am one of the few, the proud and such to have been in the minority of players to play ME with a female shep from the start. Mine is a redhead, if you're wondering.

    I made mine look like a boss who was just fired. Never gonna tell her about it and have to explain that i was trying to get her to sleep with the white boy but the blue discount lesbian came out of nowhere. But you weren't a ho and stayed loyal.

    I'm curious where you've been hearing a "tiring" amount of people say that, considering that only 18% of players played female

    And Jennifer Hale is seriously so much better that it's kind of insane, and the fact that there's any debate at all seems kind of ridiculous to me

    A little, but it's the best kind of bored.

    Having heard the arguments for both (the same exact fucking argument) they're both flat and so much better at delivering renegade lines than the other voice actor.

    It's simply a matter of preference.
