Last month, following Comic Con, Bioware asked Mass Effect fans to vote for the face of the new default Femshep after protests of the lack of Femshep Mass Effect promotional items, despite the series being playable through as either female or male Commander Shepard.
Bioware provided six variations of Femshep, each of a different race in egalitarian fashion. Perhaps heralding back to Metroid, Mass Effect fans chose Femshep #5, AKA Aryan Femshep.
More protests ensued, probably because Mass Effect fans are picky bastards (myself included), and Bioware put up another vote after determining that fans chose Femshep #5 not because… WHITE POWER… but because Femshep #5 didn’t have a butch lesbian haircut. Between the choices of brunette, dirty blond, red, or blond Femshep #5, fans overwhelmingly chose the red head.
So there it is folks, the new Femshep is a firecrotch. Enjoy.
