As most of you are aware, Bioware decided to allow fans to choose the official appearance for the female Commander Shepard on Facebook and I was lucky enough to be at the Bioware-Base when the six candidates were announced. The scene was utter-mayhem and I can honestly say there were almost as many females as males present at the event. However here is where things get a bit tricky.
Today marks a pretty special day for Mass Effect Fans everywhere, N7 Day! November 7th will (hopefully) forever be associated with one of the great space operas of our generation, Mass Effect. Our love of the Mass Effect franchise here at Nerd Appropriate is well known. Over the past few years we’ve gushed about the series on our podcast, gotten friendly with the voice cast, and even managed to chat it up with some of the writers and creators. Having grown up on tales of galactic bad guys and colossal space battles, we feel as though the Mass Effect series reinvigorated the genre through the successful integration of gun slinging, romance, and role playing. The good news is that the Mass Effect franchise is here to stay, and from what we’ve been seeing N7 day is an wonderful celebration of all things Mass Effect. Take a look at some of the great things the maniacs at Bioware offered up to fans today.
