By Your Command: FemShep Lives

God forbid we'd post yet another Mass Effect 3 trailer, but... well, here's another Mass Effect 3 trailer. It stars, at long, long last, the female version of Shepard, finally getting just a tiny fraction of the official marketing acknowledgment she deserves. You will, I trust, understand.

Seriously. Come on, seriously. Why does anyone play as BlokeShep? That voice! That is the voice of authority. I'm a bit :/ about the new, more glamorous look, but as far as I can gather it's not going to be forced onto us, and hopefully we can make female Shepards that remain very much in the not-here-for-your-entertainment vein of our ME1 & 2 characters.

I do hate the portmanteau 'FemShep' by the way, but it is part of popular culture lexicon now, so I suppose I can't ignore it.
