RULES
[QUOTE]
There will be NO Male Shep/Fem Shep or Jennifer Hale/Mark Meer bashing here. This only leads to flame wars and we wish to avoid. Offensive sexist remarks of any kind WILL be reported.
Do not quote any offensive remarks and/or start a fight over them. Simply ignore them and hit the report button.  If you must go off topic, do it in our group.  Also, the new forum rules state that this thread cannot be used as a chat room such as saying 'hi and bye' to other posters.  Also, do not even mention the page counts of this thread either here.  Thanks and if you have any questions, feel free to send me a private message.
[/QUOTE]

This thread was created in the hopes of getting more recognition for Female Shepard. Her fans eagerly awaited seeing what she would look like in ME2 and all we received were a few pictures scant days prior to the release of the game.

We understand and accept that Sheploo is the poster boy for the series but we would really like to see her get the recognition we believe she deserves before the series concludes. The following poll certainly indicates that FemShep players are a substantial part of the BioWare community.  Also, this article  was recognized by Bioware and posted on their official ME2 Facebook page.  The writer voices what most of us have been saying in regards to our Female heroine.  It's a great accomplishment that Bioware has taken notice, so much thanks goes to the writer!

A Better FemShep For Future DLC and Mass Effect 3
[QUOTE]
  • FemShep needs better animations, reduced clipping, no bugs, and to be worked on as much as her male counterpart is.  To see proof that she needs more time dedicated to her character model read the first post of this thread. Jesse Houston stated to FemShep players that "Our goal has and will continue to be to ensure that female and male Shepard have a truly equitable experience and that no one group of people feel left out."
  • FemShep screenshots need to be released simultaneously with MaleShep's whenever new DLC armors are announced.
  • FemShep screens should be released simultaneously with Sheploo for ME3.  We don't need to overshadow him, we just want to be able to see how she looks in the next game.  This also ties in to showing what she will look like in exclusive pre-order armors such as the GameStop 'Terminus Armor' of ME2.
[/QUOTE]

We, the fans, are not the only ones. The talented voice actress Jennifer Hale also urged her fans to start asking for more Female Shepard. This thread is also an appreciation for her amazing performance in giving voice to our Shepards.  She has actually replied to a fan letter before!  " it means a lot that the Female Shepard has connected with people and i love that you guys are bugging bioware to give her more recognition, awesome!   Read the letter here as well as more of her response.

So use this thread to tell us why you love playing as Female Shepard. Discuss what you would like to see Bioware do in showing some recognition for the game’s female protagonist.  Do you have a fan trailer you would like to share?  How do you roleplay your FemShep?  Fill out your Shepard's character survey or read others.  Thanks to jlb524 for the template. What are some of your favorite Jennifer Hale lines?  What needs to be improved on or implemented in order to have a better FemShep experience in the future?

Love Jennifer Hale's voice acting.



Love the chance to play a strong, confident, complex woman in an intriguing military sci-fi setting.



Love FemShep. That is all.

I also happen to love the ability to play a strong, capable and confident female protagonist, the likes of which are extremely rare, sadly enough. Plus, Jennifer Hale's voice acting happens to be outstanding!

I would very much like for BW to release screens of FemShep in armor pre-DLC, so I know what it will look like on my Shepard before purchasing it. Like this last DLC armor purchase...we had no clue what it looked like on FemShep, until another forum poster provided some screens.



Same happened pre-ME2 release...they had all these screens of the freebie armor you could get with a pre-order...Inferno armor, Blood Dragon Armor, etc., but none showing the FemShep version. I still have no clue what Inferno Armor looks like on FemShep, tbh.

This.

It's not every day that you get to play a female leader in a game.  My RL friends are always asking me why I love ME so much and I tell them I get to play a female Commander who saves the galaxy.  The usual response is, "I didn't know you could play as a female."

Most definitely this.

How difficult is it for Bioware to take screen captures and post them online?

I would also like to perhaps advocate unique content for Female Shepard. Dialogue in certain interactions with NPCs, for example. I know this already exists in-game, but it is so sparse and rare it is virtually unnoticeable.



On a related note, I'd also like to see unique animations for FemShep. Whilst she looks absolutely gorgeous in her formal dress included in Kasumi's DLC, her run and walk does not suit her attire at all.

Yeah, I just want one screen of the Female version, just one.



And, yeah, it's funny (and sad) the amount of people that don't even know you can play the game as a female Commander Shepard.

One of my favourite pieces of Jennifer Hale's voice acting is when Shepard asks Liara "Are you going to be okay?" on the Normandy after Benezia's death. She absolutely nails that line, and she sounds so concerned and caring. Brilliant voice acting.

One of my favorite, unique interactions is with the Batarian in Garrus' recruitment mission in ME2.  I like the Renegade interrupt when you can pull out your gun and say, "Mine is bigger than yours," when he is being smug.  haha!

I am yet to use that Renegade interrupt. My Shepard just gives him a death stare, as if she is saying "STFU, jerk!". Haha! It is an awesome moment, however, and I wish that there were more lines of dialogue exclusive to FemShep like in this instance.
