Anyone else, during playing Mass Effect. start finding themselves considerably attracted to their Commander Shepards?

I didn’t really like the face of my Shepard in the first game, She had a bit of a square face and wouldn’t be considered “conventionally attractive”.

But partway through mass…

I admit it. I totally crush on my Shepard. I replay the game so often because I start to miss her. Jennifer Hale did a fantastic job. 

Say ‘Hi’ to Calico - http://caeric-arclight.tumblr.com/search/my%20shepard

Oh my god, that is so AWESOME! I’m jealous that you even have gifs of your shepard! Although the saucy ones did make me totally blush. XD

Calico Shepard eh? My one’s name is Kaidence Shepard.

How did you take the screencaps? I’ve got the game on PS3.and apparently you can’t take screencaps on it, so I think I gotta try to work something out with my phone camera.

She’s pretty cute though! :)

Thanks. I’ll try and get some GIFs where everyone has their clothes on when I get some time.   ;)  

When I first started playing ME1, I’d just rented the first one for the 360 because I’d heard good things about it. Since I was only going to have it for a couple of days, I didn’t put any major effort into her look. I mainly just poked at the sliders to see what the options were, got someone I thought had a strong look about her tho not, as you said, “conventionally attractive”, and started playing. 

By the time I had to return the game, I knew I had to buy it. And when I bought it, I couldn’t bring myself to start over with another Shepard, despite certain angles really showing some bits that needed work.

The graphics update in ME2 helped, but it did something kinda weird to her in ME3, plus I wasn’t happy that Traynor had copied her hairstyle (headcanon - Traynor literally copied her hairstyle. After the Battle of the Citadel and stories of her re-appearance and victory over the Collectors, lots of people wanted ‘Shepard Hair’.)

When I finally got a PC made in this decade, I bought the games again and made a few small tweaks to her look - changing her hair for ME3 - and the screencaps and GIFs are all from that. (Now that I’ve got a PS3 too, I’m having a hard time not buying the trilogy yet again. I’m messed up.)

From what I can tell, screencapping from the PS3 (or 360, for that matter) would include buying hardware to run it thru a computer and capturing that way. Unless you have a DVD recorder or DVR you can run the PS3 thru, maybe.

Using a camera, which I did some with the 360, works best in a dark room (no flash, of course) and with scenes where not much movement is happening. If the camera has a self-timer, set it and put the phone on something so you don’t get any movement when activating the shutter.

Hope to see Kaidence soon.

I just remembered that I have an A/V capture card from when I was gonna do LP’s, which I never ended up doing. So I could run it into my laptop through the A/V. It’ll be worse quality but it’d probably still look better than a camera phone… maybe.

On the topic of Jennifer Hale though, she also did the voice of the main character of the game that’s been on the the top of my favourite games of all time list since I first played it in like 2006.

It might be a bit hard to come by these days. But if you like horror, it comes highly recommended.

One of the problems a couple of friends of mine had with Firefly was that, to them, it was just too American. 

While you would say “Of course it’s American, it’s a Western in space” it is a nice little reminder of cultural differences. Westerns resonate very strongly with Americans but probably less so with, in the case, Germans. 

The theme of people living free away from the watchful eye of a central government really rubbed one of them the wrong way. It’s a common American theme, but I think he missed the point. Some media have agendas, but Firefly doesn’t really. The setting is neat, but what sells it most is the ensemble of characters. The show is described as being about nine people who have nine different views of the world. Mal is driven by his sense of the right of ordinary people to live their own lives, but not everyone feels that way. 

Joss Whedon, from what I can tell of his politics, is pretty liberal by American standards, which means that he does actually believe in the value of government so long as it doesn’t interfere in terms of personal freedoms. Therefore he’s written a sympathetic character who doesn’t necessarily align completely with his own values… but that’s okay. The characters you create and the stories you write don’t have to be completely you. 

One of the things to consider about the politics of firefly is that it’s inspired by a very specific period of American history.

The war in the first episode, and referenced several times during the show, is an analogue for the American Civil War. But in a twist, the Alliance (counterparts for the union) are seen as the “bad guys”, whereas the Independents (representing the confederacy) are painted as noble martyrs.

I just bought the Mass Effect Trilogy earlier this year and I am so addicted to it now. I totally regret not playing it sooner. This game is perfect.

I know, I think I might get sad when it’s all over.

I’m already sad and I just started playing Mass Effect 3.

Aww. Tell me about your commander Shepard. Do you have any pics of them?
