Bioware ruined default Fem Shepard's appearance in Mass Effect Legendary Edition!

Since I play a male Shepard this has zero impact on me. Although it does leave many concerns for the rest of the game. I didn't watch the full vid but I won't buy day one until I know they have not changed the main game as much as fem shep.

That's what you get for playing as Fem Shep

Have you ever heard Fem Shep saying "we will bang, ok?"

Thought so

Original and Remaster both look like a face you'd find in bad Eastern European porn. Still, I think the remaster is slightly better than the original or at least slightly more feminine

These are the same people who brought us the delightful faces of ME: Andromeda.

Not at all surprising.

People are saying that's the default femshep look of ME3 but did she allways look that bad? or is it just the angle?

This is from an oficial ME3 trailer:




There's also some other weird changes in that video.
Look at 6:37. It goes from an apocalyptic end of the world look with the red sky and the lightning, to a nice sunny day.

That mod you linked looked like a 16 year old, do you really want to play with a 16 year old? You can always create a face to your liking lol

For some reason, they couldn't get the face right.

this was from the Mass Effect 3 trailer, even this face feels off.



even the user-created Shepard faces feel off.



I dunno, but all these faces just feel off.

I want the face to look similar to this art.

Not what we were given:



even the older ME3 look was more appealing.



This was a fan mod and it looks better than the Legendary edition version.


The character creation version that were imported looks terrible in the original trilogy.



Things can be reworked.

Really just summarizes the talent pool at western studios, just wait and see, game will be filled with bugs and the original games will be the best way to experience it

This reminds me of when Square-Enix changed the character model in the Remastered edition:

The remastered version feels fucking off and this Mass Effect Legendary edition is giving the same fucking vibes.

I wonder if there's a correlation between men who choose to play as female characters in RPG's and men who decide in their late 40's that they were actually born a woman and are in the wrong body. It wouldn't surprise me if there was some overlap there.

Jesus, I realized the similarities with Fem Shepard Legendary Edition and Borderlands 3.




Both faces look horrible, Lilith from Borderlands 1 had a much better face compared to Borderlands 3.

She gained weight in B3.

I made countless threads on faces.

Here Bungie fucked up Guardian faces.

So it's going to be the same look for all 3 games? Seems like in 3 she looks battle hardened and in 1 she would normally look fresh cut.

Preorder Cancelled, they fucked up the default face.
It's like what Square-Enix did when they changed Lara's Look in the Remastered Edition.

You fucked up Bioware.
Honestly, the face should be more aligned to: https://www.nexusmods.com/masseffect/mods/178

Honestly, it looks like a fucking intern worked on the remodel, we didn't ask for.

Fucking hell...

Not only is it ugly, but it looks more like X360 graphics than the original game on the X 360. But maybe her face is tired.

She looks better lol. Her old face looked like a no name NPC. This has been a huge point of contention in the series for fans since the first game came out. MaleShep in the first game had a dedicated model while FemShep was an afterthought render.

Now all of a sudden the devs finally fix it and some of you claim they ruined it? LOL

Not that it matters. MaleShep GOATShep

I don't know who the fuck can take this seriously, because FemShep looks like his teenager fucking daughter. It was just bad.

And new one looks like 50 year old milf, well not really my type of milf.

But yeah they have pretty nice pick and it's still weird to me that the dude actually exists (Sheploo, I mean)
