No no, it's cool you guys, I'm sure "sexy" is more important to your survival than "armor" or "protection from the unloving vacuum of space should even a teeny bit of this mission go wrong". You're the professionals. Somehow.

No, there will never be a day when I will not be annoyed with... certain character design aspects.

I think Mass Effect justifies this relatively well because most defense is from either biotic barriers or shields.

@Norgrath: but then when the barriers and shields drop you're left completely exposed without any other line of defense.

@zenat: I feel the same way. Their designs actually keep me from ever using certain companions because its just irritating to look at.

@Shaleene: The excuse is that weapons tech has developed so far that conventional armor is pretty much useless against it anyway, although then you kinda have to wonder why Shepard and other N7 get custom armor at all.

Well, at least Zaeed is wearing a helmet when he's in space. Not some... what the hell that plastic thing all others wear is.

Damn Zaeed, this whole saving the galaxy buisness is doing wonders for your skin.

@Norgrath: Maybe the people making armor should get on it and up their game :p But for real, biotic barriers and all, we're still looking at boobs falling out at any given moment here.

@Shaleene: It... is a contributing factor when I decide who to bring. I love Samara, but...

@4mation: Good point. I suppose... some armor still do its job...? But everyone can't use that technology because...?

@davesin: Yes, but, like, his arm. Vacuum of space. You suit up as if you were a quarian, Zaeed, I intend to keep you alive throughout this damnit!

@Sharp-Claw: ... I forgot wrinkles. Damnit. But hey, if they don't have noses then surely the loss of wrinkles is a minor issue?

@zenat: Touché.

i'm less bothered with the lack of armor and more with the fact that miranda and and samara run around in high heels.. you are in fucking combat!

@Blazypika2: I think those two go hand in hand really. But hey, at least the heels aren't built into their feet... like poor EDI :I

@zenat: EDI can't feel it, so it probably not that of a concern for her and she can change the model if she wants.

generally, there are two things about female characters design in video games i don't like, when their protective "armor" is just a metalic bra or something slutty of a sort and when they fight with heels. i mean if it's so hard to walk with heels (from what i'v heard anyway) can't see how running around shooting or hacking people will make sense with heels. look at shepard, she kick arse and wear full armor while doing so. i'll take practical over sexy any day and frankly, practical is more sexy anyway =P
