My female Shepard came out really good... VA really fit her. It's weird seeing pictures of the generic male Shepard on commercials and such because that is just not the Mass Effect I know.
I tried to make a male adept... thought it was funny the name was Shepard so I tried to make Jack from Lost, but it's fucking impossible. And even if I was able to get it right the VA is so bland for the guy character...
found the pics. this is the gal i made back when i got the game at launch. she looks better in motion when she's talking and stuff. looks like everyone else thought this hairdo was the best as well :lol
If you don't have broadband, it's a certified nightmare. *raises hand*
Not to mention I refuse to deal with almost all activation-required software, it's a personal issue here, I don't mind it in the case of consoles, but "portal" software is a big ugly to me i'll never accept on PC's.
It creates a boatload of issues and is, simply put, a pain not worth dealing with. I'm sure it's improved since I've used it, but it won't change my feelings on the issue of activation/portal software on PC's. Only 2 games I ever bought that had such a feature were Half-Life 2 and Two Worlds (nobody said it required activation!). And unfortunately for me, this is one kind of game I can't play with gamepads.
