My, Female Shepard, How You've...Changed

Reader Sgt.LulzJager has kept the same female Commander Shepard model across all three Mass Effect games. That's a lot of time spent with the same character. So it didn't take long for him to notice something different about her in Mass Effect 3.

Beside a few tweaks to her face, he didn't make any changes to the rest of her physical appearance. That all just...happened.

I noticed my Shepard's arms had gotten bigger, but figured, hey, he's been in what's essentially a prison for a while. And dudes in prison pump iron.

I may not watch enough documentaries on women's prisons to be an authority on this subject, but I'm pretty sure women in the slammer don't come out with complimentary cosmetic surgery.


    Clearly she has been going through puberty throughout the series, which explains why the new femshep would look more in place at a mall then a battlefield.

      Reverse puberty, perhaps.

      It's just Mass Effect models being shitty. The same story was with Dragon Age: Origins.

    She got a new space bra big whoop wanna fight about it

    She's just wearing a push up bra is all.

      And butt pads? For hard landings?

    Is it just me or is ME2 mostly graphically superior in the character department?

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it?

    I always thought femshep in ME1 and ME2 wasn't very realistic. Even though he's a little more 'perky' in ME3 she's definitely not built like a Barbie doll like a lot of other female characters,

    Noticed the same thing happening as graphics get updated in Runescape; female characters are getting boobier. Yes I'm using that word.

    i hate you luke

      Nice to see you again name! I noticed you're still bashing Plunkett.

      name, go post on the US site so Luke will actually see your crap.

    To be fair, the first image has her wearing her armour. The other two are in casual.

    It always irritated me in ME1 and 2 that her boobs sat so low! They look so saggy and unnatural to me, ME3 they did good work to make it look like they weren't grandma boobs hanging almost down to her bellybutton.

      Generally... that's how boobs work. Unless you wear a push up bra.

        That's not really true. As somewhat of a boob afficinado, not all boobs sag down to the navel. Also, for them to hang that low, they'd have to be unsupported - which is kind of ludicrous if you think about it.

        I don't know if there are special "N7 Space Bras" or what not, but definately something in that order is warrented, unless Femshep likes slapping herself with her boobs while trying to run across the battlefield to get into position.

      Yeah pretty much, maybe not at her breast size, but 1 and 2 are pretty realistic otherwise, while 3 is an obvious push up bra...or looking at them like that, obvious boob job.



    start of ME2 and an option in ME2

    Her arms are still too damn skinny.

    ME2 model looks the best and most natural. As someone with boobs i can say ME1 is realistic, if you note that she is slouching quite a bit. Generally smaller boobed people don't need to wear bras, particularly if they have some kind of figure hugging spacesuit on. I do agree that it would be uncomfortable to do that much running around braless though, no matter the size.

    "Gentlemen, we can rebuild her. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic femshep. Sgt.LulzJager's avatar will be that femshep. Better than she was before. Better, stronger, faster. "
