Are there really that many people who are so insecure about their sexuality they won't even touch a game with a female only character? Well than they've missed several very good games over the years.
I actually prefer rolling female characters in RPGs. I figure if I'm going to spend a fair amount of time looking at a digitally rendered backside it might as well be female.
Anyone who went through that game more than once and DIDN'T roll a female missed out on some of the greatest dialog in the whole game.
I just finished reinstalling. I'm going to play down the male paragon path once, then female renegade. I need to do the good side of the game again since I've probably forgotten large portions and I want to see how things change.
On topic: video looks solid, but I'm sad to see the return of the typical forced cover system that every single console based shooter uses. It probably has regenerating health still as well. But the whole forced and artificial feel to the cover system in the last (big blocks of stone in the middle of a path, hallways having waist-high steel walls staggered through out the hallways, etc. I find those kinds of systems extremely boring. Give me a real time collision system ala Far Cry 2 any day of the week!
Agreed. As good as ME1 is there are design choices that were made to serve consoles and hurt the PC port. Then again, it was a well done PC port so I can't complain too much.
