Their normal behavior: Dead Space forces Isaac Clarke into deadly situations, while Army of Two’s Salem and Rios jump into danger with gusto. Whatever the reasoning, all these guys have killed thousands in the line of duty, finding a wide variety of ways to dismember and behead humanoids. Mass Effect’s Shepard is no slouch when it comes to dealing death, and the Commander also finds time for the kind of outer space hookups that makes Fox News freak out. Clearly, EA has all its M-rated bases covered.
Why are they in this? MySims is what happens when you try to make Sims even more kid-friendly, with Lego-style adventures that star dopey, character created secret agents. Perhaps in a bid to get older siblings to play the kiddie game in co-op, EA leveraged its most popular franchises to spice up the game with cameos by Dead Space, Army of Two, and Mass Effect characters. Their MySims reimaginings are cute and all, but without the ability to chop off limbs or sleep with aliens, their appearances feel a tad incomplete.
