The next Mass Effect might be about you and yours

The next Mass Effect will not revolve around Commander Shepard and crew, according to a BioWare Comic-Con panel. However, Phil Hornshaw of GameFront tweeted that the game’s hero will have “something to do” with N7, the military designation for special forces soldiers with the highest levels of proficiency in badassery, which Shepard was a part of before becoming savior of the galaxy.

So if the game isn’t about Shepard, who is it about? Andrea Rene of The Escapist snapped some offscreen pics of a customizable hero labeled “your hero,” as well as a picture of a new version of the Mako landrover from the original Mass Effect. Interestingly, this Mako was referred to as “your Mako.”

Does the “your” imply customization options? Are we playing as ourselves? Unfortunately, such questions won’t be answered for awhile, if ever. Hornshaw reports that the BioWare panelists caution that the game is years away, and things can change between now and then.

(Male Edition coming soon)

I feel that there should be more female protagonists in video games. The gaming industry in my opinion is such a sausage fest.

I’m Commander Shepard, and These Are My Favorite Names In Mass Effect 3

BioWare analyzed player data from Mass Effect 3 to determine the most popular names for Commander Shepard. The most common choices by far were the defaults, John and Jane, but for those players who ventured off the beaten path, these are the top five names for each gender.

For myself when I played Mass Effect I just used my name, Shawn, but apparently my name just isn’t popular. :(
