I was watching "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" on Netflix the other night. Jennifer Hale pretty much does her Cmd. Shepard voice for Ms. Marvel. Which was only more highlighted in a scene where Captain America is standing right beside her and says "we hold the line".

Lord Kefka... you're insatiable.

Ha, nice.

Social Media Coordinator talks about being a fan of Mass Effect.

I'll be honest, it wasn't until 3 or 4 years afterwards before I ahh, didn't agree with Wrex! NOOO I'm sorry bro, what have I done... but ya gotta do it - that's the coolest thing about the series, all the different outcomes based on decisions prior.

It's funny that they got so many "execute him!" responses. Especially considering that after ME1 came out, people voted Wrex as their favorite character for that year.

I've been reading the 'talks' from the Bioware team this past week and that one is one of the better ones. If not simply for his Faunts shout-out at the end.

Did you guys see the Normandy/N7 medallion that Casey Hudson gave everyone on the team? What I'd do for one of those........unspeakable things......

As a staunch supporter of the original ME3 ending (I am one of few), I don't usually partake in end-game theory discussion, but this one has an interesting take on it that takes into account the Citadel DLC. It's an interesting read and probably the last we'll get at this depth at this point.

Hey guys - so yes the servers and challenge systems will keep running as long as we can keep them up but there will no longer be any organized weekend events.

Perfect timing, my son was born late Monday night so my gaming isn't on my list of things to do right now

Look, there's no easy way to ask this so I'm just gonna do it...

Does anyone want to be gay lovers with me in Fable 3?

Thanks for posting that, Arikado! I asked Robyn Thebarge, who put that together, if they'd show it to the public and she said they were thinking about it. Glad they did.

There's all kinds of interesting little bits coming out of the PAX seminars. Stupid stuff, like how Patrick Weekes lobbied to have Tali as a squad member in ME3 when she originally wasn't supposed to be one.

Have you guys seen this? I totally missed it. Had no idea there were class specific interrupts. Suppose this could be the only one for what I know though.

Didn't even look like a class specific interrupt. Pretty neat.

I can't believe they actually were going to keep elevators as "gameplay" for ME3 and only didn't put them in because they ran out of time. Seriously, I thought they learned their lesson from ME1. The guy in charge of that said he wanted to make the elevators faster, worked and worked on the system and they were just as slow as the ME1 ones. lol I also liked how Casey Hudson, when asked what's your favorite location, totally talked about characters and the stories you can create in Mass Effect. Wow, soooo is he a politician, lol.

I'm not sure how I felt about the elevators. Sure, I hated them in ME1, but then they went to generic loading screens. Break the immersion or keep it and have a long ride up?

It's a tough call, honestly. I wouldn't have minded the elevator rides if they had WAY more banter though. Or side quests. Or random bits of information. Really, anything to keep it from being a silent ride for a full minute. Hell, give me stock updates from the Mass Effect Stock Exchange! The Illium and Poor 500! Something.

You can't handle the Tech Armor! That's was actually pretty interesting. New theme night idea? Nothing but tech armor and powers could be interesting.

I am actually learning to LOVE tech armor. I have been going back and trying a lot of non popular characters and getting power cycles down with them. was mopping up reapers hard with Krogan Soldier power build with grenade + V. I started a tech armor Krogan Sentinel Melee build too that is quite fun. I am up for tech armor night.

Maybe others have seen this already, but the New Yorker did a profile of Jennifer Hale in 2011 that has a lot of interesting info on Mass Effect and voice acting in general. I somehow hadn't read it until today.

One amusing anecdote, during a VO session for Mass Effect 3, Jennifer Hale had to be reminded of whether Shepard had heard of Cerberus before. :lol: It's weird, in one sense Hale has a more intimate relationship to Shepard and the Mass Effect story than almost any other person; but at the same time, she hasn't played the games and the role is just one of hundreds of characters that she performs every day.
