hmm, interesting... maybe she could be playing some kind of kin to Benezia? do Asari even have the possibility of having twins (i was too caught up in the whole lesbian thing, which surprisingly enough distracts me each time i hear it.) Either way i am interested to hear how she comes back.

Also its new Mass Effect 2 video day. Bioware have posted a video of the voice actors making up the cast of Mass Effect 2. One word though 'SPOILERS!!!!' i watched a few seconds and it revealed a sizeable chunk about one of the new characters. Anyway... you have been warned....

Lots of hotties in the voice cast. Too bad we don't get to see them onscreen. I'm not watching any spoiler videos because I want to be surprised by the game, but that new girl is pretty hot. I hope she's a candidate for, um, romance. ;)

I hope that romance can go both ways. :shifty:

given Bioware's stance on romance options (female shepherd and liara in ME1 and the tons of options in Dragon Age: Origins) i wouldn't be surprised if there are various ways of romance options. Kind of like how i noticed there weren't any Turian females in ME1.

We kind of figured male Shep would be able to. Hell, I'd be disappointed if he couldn't. I was just wondering if female Shep could. They've done the whole "female Shep, strangely-feminine-uni-sex-alien", so why not go all the way and piss off more people that don't play the game?

^Agreed. So the ultra conservative, Christian bunch can scream "There is a lesbian love scene in it!" while it show's less than a day time soap opera.

actually i remember them all screaming blue murder about the first game because it had a sex scene in it and not once did they stop and realise that the scene actually takes place towards the end of the game. It's like they were thinking that as soon as you put the disc in the machine it'd be wham! instant porn!

This is the wikipedia entry about the whole thing.

On January 21, 2008, a Fox News segment "The Live Desk With Martha MacCallum" discussed Mass Effect with the heading "'SEXBOX?' New video game shows full digital nudity and sex." MacCallum stated that the game "leaves nothing to the imagination," features "the ability for players to engage in full graphic sex" where the player gets to decide what happens, cited critics as saying that the Mature-rated game is marketed to children and teenagers, and read a rebuttal from publisher Microsoft stating that the company abides by rating systems and provides monitoring tools for parents. Psychology specialist and author Cooper Lawrence and video game journalist Geoff Keighley were interviewed. The former described sexual content in video games as teaching their active users, adolescent boys, to consider women as objects of desire valued solely for their sexuality. She added that the game's player character is a man who decides how many women he wants to be with. Keighley focused on challenging the accuracy of previous statements, saying it is a choice to play the protagonist as a male or a female. He also described Mass Effect as having an optional, brief sexual situation as the culmination of a romantic relationship in a 30+ hour game. Adding to Lawrence's inaccuracies is the fact that the main character is not allowed to be with more than one individual, sexually and romantically. MacCallum and Lawrence admitted that they had not played the game.

On the 25th, Lawrence, who had since watched someone play the game for about two-and-a-half hours, retracted her earlier statements in an interview. She added that she had been told the game was similar to pornography, and noted that she "has seen episodes of Lost that are more sexually explicit." In the interim, largely as a reaction from an offended gaming community, her latest book attracted a number of customer reviews on Amazon.com which rated it one star out of five

well, think i've just found my class... although i still believe it'll come down to what they've done to the Soldier class that defines it, must be a case of them saving the best until last.

:lol: We're gonna lose you after this game comes out, aren't we? We'll have to do weekly check-in calls to make sure you've at least showered once a week.

Mass Effect Awareness and Support Group...
Are YOU going to be playing Mass Effect? then STOP! Be aware of the multitude and versatility of this game. The MEASG is here to bring understanding for those who have been blighted with what is being regarded as Spectre-itis. Symptoms include...
-The person will only answer in sentence they determine will effect their Paragon / Renegade Status.
CLERK: Would you like Salt & Vinegar with those chips?
EXAMPLE PERSON 1: No thank you, my reward is knowing those chips are well cooked and taste great my friend.
EXAMPLE PERSON 2: Do you know how many people i killed getting here! Put some salt and vinegar on those chips before i leave your brain scattered on the floor!
-The Person will refuse to accept technology fearing that if they use it they might bring about the return of the reapers.
PERSON 1: Turn on the TV would you darling?
PERSON 2: Sure, i do that and we'll bring down human society, the galaxy will become enslaved and we're all be doomed to lifetime a torment and despair.
PERSON 1: I only asked you to put it on X Factor.
PERSON 2: Near enough the same thing.
-The Person will believe all of their dreams are the result of being connected to a Prothean device.
-The Person will only wear clothes that they believe will effect their stats and figures.
-The Person will hear Seth Green's voice and immediately reply "Cut it Joker! now get this bird in the air!"
Finally, The person may also believe that their conversation choices may result in their romance options with members of the opposite sex. Be warned, even though the person may in the end choose you as his respective mate, he may all the time be thinking 'i wish i had been created as a female character, just so i could bang the blue chick'
Be warned, Mass Effect has already struck once, it will strike again. A good early warning symptom to look out for is if the person mutters to himself... "I wonder if i should have gone with a Sentinel instead of Engineer?" Contact us immediately and we will be there to bring them back to reality*

This has been a ad for the Mass Effect Support Group, saving the world from Bioware and its creations, 1 video game at a time. We aren't some religous nut group, we just don't like people having too much fun in the world. Terms and Conditions may apply, so if you have a complaint. guess what? your right out of luck. We can disregard any offer and on any terms, even down to your characters face. Also anyone who complains about Mass Effect not being available to Playstation 3 players will be loaded into a van and forced to play Dragon Age: Origins until they realise their mistake.

*Please note that your version of reality may differ from the reality of Mass Effect Support Group and its subsidaries, please check with your local causality spacial continuum for further information.
