The Fans Responded, And Fem Shep Has Been Chosen For Mass Effect 3 [Updated]

The fans have spoken, and at the moment, the blonde bombshell will be our new default female Commander Shepard in Mass effect 3. The contest is roaring forward, and thousands of fans have locked in their votes. For those of you who weren’t with the times, BioWare held a contest on the official Mass Effect 2 Facebook page where fans “Liked” the image of their favorite model.

ME3News on Twitter announced that  blondie is in the lead so far, as she racked in 19,816 votes. This is more than twice as much as the second place design. I personally didn’t vote for this one, because I don’t want another Samus Aran in a video game. I have Metroid for that. A plus, though, she kind of reminds me of Natalie Portman, and that, my friends, is awesome in its own right.

What do you think about the contest so far? Did you vote for her? Which one do you think should win? Does it even matter in the end? Tell us your opinions in the comments below.

[Update:]  After doing some research into the contest, we have discovered that it is, in fact, not yet over with. Right now the blonde Shepard model is in the lead, with 23,611 votes total. There is no news on when the contest will end, but we’re looking into it. Sorry for the inconvenience, readers!
