    I always thought the original blonde option in that Bioware poll looked like Joffrey from Game of Thrones. So yeah, I'm definitely agreeing with the prepubescent boy call.

    She was also 'remade' at the start of ME2, which is why she looks so undamaged.

    I'm not sure even reconstructive surgery can take the world-weary look outta one's eyes.

    I'm sure it can if it basically gives you new eyes.

    FemShep (And ManShep) were almost completely destroyed at the start of ME2. It's explained their gender was unclear (In the comic) and if you look at the in-game cutscene and think about how much damage Shep suffered, it's amazing they could piece him/her together again.

    Which, if anything, is even worse. With that much damage and that much reconstructive surgery, there should be even more scars and knackeredness.

    I still think it is such a shame that you don't have a little blue bastard child in ME2 if you made certain decisions in ME1. I mean it is a pretty rotten eugenics program that passes up the chance to incorporate shepard: savior of the universe

    Can we just blanket ban the use of the word FemShep? It sounds like a brand of ladies intimate hygiene product.

    I don't think "intimate" belongs in the same sentence as "feminine hygine product"

    Agree, my femsheps in ME1/2 were always attractive, but never something you'd see in a Guess™ advert. Sort of a Lucy Lawless function before form, cute but no mistaking she means business.

    There may be a small chance that somehow this fShep's in-game appearance wouldn't result in a too much cringe-worthy disparity between her looks, voice and actions. It just might work, I think, although there's not much hope for that. Still, one cannot but wonder what Bioware were thinking.

    (Rii, you're my gynophilic hero! That sounds a bit weird, but I mean it in the best sense possible.)

    Despite being basically reconstructed? The wobbly plot device with the facial scarring was that "Good Shep" encourages regrowth and healing, whereas "Bad Shep" doesn't, hence the more robotic and evil appearance, but it was like that because Shep was prematurely put into action at the start of ME2. He/She didn't have as much time to recover as they needed.

    The medical technology in the ME universe is able to remove scars (You know, that massive Med-Bay upgrade?), so why you find it "worse" is beyond me.

    A "world-weary look in [one's] eyes" is talking about the set of a person's expression, how they carry themselves, basically the non-verbal cues they put forward.

    You... you knew that, right? I just stepped on a joke, right?

    Perfectly acceptable forum behavior.

    I usually just treat everything as if it were written in guise of the most base form of sardonic puffery, but then I hit the literalists, and my mind is blown.

    He literally wants me to fuck off and die? Wow that is a bit extreme, well I was planning of fucking off later this evening anyway but dieing afterward will be a bit of a pain to organize.
