Here's my FemShep: Commander Caithlin Shepard, Infiltrator, Earth-born, orphaned street urchin and later veteran Alliance Marine and survivor of Akuze.

Her hair is dyed red, one of her few concessions to vanity, and perhaps a reminder of the gang colours of the Red Street Gang of her youth. She wears her scars like badges of honour. Disciplined and usually playing by the book, she almost always tries to do the right thing; cutting corners or playing foul is rare for her. Usually, the Earth first movement makes her uneasy, and while the Council hasn't impressed her, she tries to look at the larger picture. After her current cooperation with Cerebus and thwarting the Reapers, she plans to find some quiet corner of the galaxy and perhaps raise a family. I mean, the Reapers wouldn't try anything big now, would they?

In ME1, she wooed Kaidan; she wasn't really comfortable with Liani. In ME2, she's just been revived and introduced to her new crew. Somehow, she hit it off with Kelly, but it remains to be seen where that goes.

If a Kelly Romance can be done in ME 3.. i may have to do yet another playthrough...

Right now having a terrible, Liana/Garrus triangle going... And it's a shame Tali is only after Mr Shepard...

In the 'insanity' walk through I watched, although Shepard was a total paragon, he wooed every female he could! It was really quite amusing and even a bit endearing. There were only the two on-screen consummations, Liara in ME1 and Miranda in ME2, but he got drunk with Chakwas, had a fling with Liara and had Kelly to his cabin. He also definitely tried his hardest with Samara, but she demurred.

I watched an ME2 LP where the Femshep wooed Garrus. I found that very touching.

I myself, however, would definitely go with Thane (if I were playing a Femshep); for a male Shepard it would be a hard to choose between Liara and Tali. Or possibly Kaidan...I've seen a hacked YT Kaidan/Shepard romance for ME1 and I think I heard that that will be a possibility for ME3.

I read that it will definitely be an option for a male Shepard to romance other males in ME3.

Then I wonder if James (the new squad mate) is a possible romance option... Probably is, for both sexes.

Hey, Nora, why not succumb to the dark side and get a computer you can play ME on? Now it sounds pretty much like viewing internet porn for your part...

:lol:

Unfortunately I'm a devoted Mac fan. And can't afford a computer just for games at the moment...

Plus, I find these RPGs just totally mind-boggling, not so much the shooting, but the upgrading and choosing the weapons etc etc.

Yep.

That's the Normandy's shuttle pilot, Steve Cortez, who is only available to male Shepards. I hear Kaidan is an option too.

One thing I like in ME2 is that Shepard is allowed to smile and even kick back a bit. S/he was rather grim and serious in ME1, but now a bit more personality has crept in. Shepard and the doctor knocking back a bottle of brandy and sharing memories was a nice thing, Shepard being woozy afterwards and the doctor happily asleep on one of the sickbay beds. The writers of the game are really good, but I wish there had been a dialogue option where one could be personal without being flirtatious.

I loved that scene with Chakwas as well. There is also some really sparky dialogue between squad members, and @Joe09 (oops, I think that's a different thread), can I please recommend that you keep checking up with Joker in the cockpit in ME2. There's some great exchanges there as well with you know who (for those of you who indeed know who, lol!)

Shepard can indeed be flirty with everyone, but he can also be very empathetic.

I am SO looking forward to ME3, however I have to wait until someone records it! And my favourite LP'er still hasn't finished his ME2. (I love his because, as I said before somewhere else, he does it 'blind', so you get to share his shock/surprise/laughter.)

My first character on KoToR 1 was dark side all the way and it was utterly hilarious. On the first planet you basically tear-arse it across the upper city burglarising every apartment you can and can slaughter the majority of the membership of both sides of a gang war.

By the time you join the Jedi you already look more evil than Darth Vader did pre-suit and yet they let you join anyway. At one point they send to a cave with another Jedi and you can even try lying to the council saying you found nothing when you actually found something very important. The other Jedi is there and immediately corrects you which means you told a blatent lie you knew would fail and there are no consequences.

They also send you to mediate peace between two families. Despite my best efforts, I almost succeeded until I lied saying one family murdered a member of the other. Also, saying "Go on! Kill them all!!" may not have been particularly conducive to the goal of brokering peace. :lol: Despite all this, they STILL send you on a quest to save the galaxy. It's a miracle this Jedi Council even made it to adulthood alive, let alone to the time of the games events. In real life, anyone this stupid would have died of penile blood loss trying to do up their flies. (Maybe this is why the Star Wars universe doesn't have zips).

Way of the Samurai 2 has very little in terms of character customisation (other than a load of weapons) but is pretty good for the fact that you can go evil at almost any point in the game. You could play halfway through as the good guy and just go "Fuck this shit!" and kill one of the good guys for absolutely no reason. Evil is so much funnier when it's out of character. I wonder if you can revert back immediately afterwards. "Thanks for saving us. You're a great guy......except for that time you cut down a bunch of civilians for no reason. Seriously, that blacksmith was kinda your friend. it's his spare room you're staying in. Why the hell did you slice him to death while he was working? He has children you know.....who will never see their father again because you decided to take a break from foiling that crime syndicate to stab him for shits and giggles."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My character in Neverwinter Nights is an extremely pale axe wielding barbarian called Ars Moriendi (the name is awesome, it's just a shame I didn't come up with it). Unsurprisingly for someone named after one of the horsemen of the apocalypse from Fall From Heaven 2 he is somewhat omnicidal. I've barely played the game but I have responded to at least one civilian's request for help......by helping them die. It was self defense! (against boredom)
He must be at least KIND of an arsehole. Why would Superman bite him if he wasn't?

Behold,

A nice view of the Presidium, and my male Shepard, whose appearance I'm actually satisfied with, for the first time. We had to reach consensus on the color of hair. Black or the one on the pic. I chose the latter for a more, unique and perhaps wilder appearance, given his rogue nature.
