Well I quite enjoy staring at Shephard in Mass Effect. I think there should only be a male one. Like any female can command a ship anyway. Everyone knows we cant read maps ;)
Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

I almost always choose a female character if given the option.  I tried to play FemShep in ME1, but I found the voice actor distracting.

Since I carried over my save into ME2, I never even tried ME2's FemShep.  Was the voice acting better?

The voice acting for fem Shep is leaps ahead as well. Speaking of which is it true that the kinect controls for ME3 go beyond just squad orders? I thought I read or heard somewhere about the player acting out the dialogue in some way! maybe I imagined it though!

You didn't imagine that, it works with the dialogue, but for some reason it feels the opposite of immersive to me. I think it's the fact that, if I have to respond vocally and the character doesn't use my reply verbatim(in real-time), it pulls you out of actually having the dialogue-based impact on the scene. It's like one of those bad voc-dub Kung Fu movies, which work fine for a laugh in that genre, but I don't think that's the intention with ME.

I agreed with Zero.  Reading the words you see onscreen aloud, only to hear your in-game character say something different is cumbersome.

It kind of reminds of those 80's ghost movies where a ghost/angel/spirit would be trying to talk to someone but they coudn't hear them.

Agreed Im not enthused about it, kind of defeats the character somewhat. Its kinda of like the player is Sheppards's conscience sitting on his shoulder saying ''go on do it, you know you to!''.

Option>>>>off!! lol I want to see some crazy words the player can't pronounce though.
