Mass Effect 3: Female Shepard leads a small army of new trailers to your eyes

February is exploding with releases (just look at this release calendar), but you need to remember to clear your gaming schedule by the first week of March if you plan on playing Mass Effect 3. BioWare’s finale to the trilogy comes to the US March 6 (UK March 9), and in preparation for that EA has released one final, huge wave of videos for the title. Chief among them is a fancy new trailer showing how the single player might look (and sound) for the many fans who know their Shepard as the toughest woman in the galaxy.

She isn’t taking crap from anyone, least of all Keith David! Additionally, BioWare posted five more videos detailing the many new aspects of the sequel, including multiplayer and the reworked gunplay. Hopefully these will prep you for the game when it hits retail in less than four weeks on 360, PS3 and PC.

    Jennifer Hale has, IMO, given one of the most consistently excellent performances in the Mass Effect series. I really can't wait to see her finish her fight. Oh and for those criticizing the dialogue, I think we should wait for the context before we start hating.

    Is Shepard... did Shepard take a blow to the head? It's not about tactics or strategy, it's about survival? Since when did survival not take tactics or strategy? Then suddenly "we're coming for the Reapers?" Wait a minute Shepard, just a minute ago you said this was about survival, not Reaper genocide.

    I think we need a little more context for that dialogue before we start criticizing it.

    i love jennifer hale but i havent liked her as femshep in the first two games. i do think she sounds a little better here though.

    I've actually found her to sound more badass than male Shepard's. I enjoy both of their voices equally though.

    It's hard to imagine FemShep as not canon.
  • Person5 - February 10, 2012 3:23 p.m.

    There is no canon Shepard though

    I will survive this. Then Garrus and I will live until we're 150 and die happy and in bed together.

    It's cool that FemShep gets her own trailer finally, but did anyone else feel the dialogue in the trailer was kind of... bad? In the beginning she sounds kind of derpy, and the "Tell ya frieeends, we're coming for them!" had me cringing pretty hard. Nevertheless, I'm really looking forward to this game.

    Actually, I got chills down my spine when she said that. I'm not even a fem shep fan and there is no way the male shep could deliver that line any better. I imagine her speaking to a dying reaper that she's about to kill.
