Mass Effect 3 will have gay romance
Posted: 16.05.2011 19:38 by Comments: 22
In an interesting twist, it seems that same sex relationships will be possible in Mass Effect 3, which is a switch from the earlier claim that no new romances will be possible. And no, Liara doesn't count as "same sex" because she is a unisex species.

Casey Hudson, Bioware executive producer of the Mass Effect series, tweeted: Happy to confirm #ME3 supports wider options for love interests incl. same-sex for m&f chars, reactive to how you interact w/them in-game.

It was originally possible for a male Shepard to romance Kaiden Alenko and a female Shepard to romance Ashley Williams in Mass Effect 1, but the option to was removed. However, hacked copies can restore the gay option.

Ah hell no!...was my first reaction. Then again on reflection, Bioware is treating it's gaming audience as more adult and mature-minded. Chalk one up for treating the gamer as a thinker (and one for Gay Rights).

@Illusive_serb: Sick?

@herodotus: There's been gay romance in Jade Empire and Dragon Age, while hinted at in KOTOR.

Anyone who decides they don't like this game because people can choose to be gay needs to grow the ---- up and realize that it won't affect their life one way or another.

@Jonah
I haven't played the games you mention (tho I own "KOTOR") so excuse my ignorance. I don't excuse anyone else's ignorance in this approach, though. Tut-tut.

It's no big deal. If you don't want to chose the option, DON'T.

People need to stop complaining over the simplest things.

@JonahFalcon: Did I misspell?
And I don't remember Jade Empire have this this thing. I guess people see what they want to see. As for DAO, when I saw it, the game impression dropped.

I don't mind and I don't overly care. Since it is a free option - you don't like it - just don't do it. Simple as that - to think that the freedom of choice should provoke and bring so much troubles - yet people are willing to stand in front of tanks just to get that one moment to say what they want... ;) weird world...

If it remains as an optional thing in the story, then I guess it's ok. But if it was made as an essential part of the storyline, I'd never buy the game.
By Knave (SI Core) on May 25, 2011

Why would they make it an essential part of the story line? This isn't some sort of erotic thriller guys... it's just a choice for people who want to have a choice. If you don't want to see it you won't.

Of course, I said it's ok for me if it stays optional :D Just like it's ok to perform explicit gay sex in Fallout 3, but only if you use the proper mod for it xD

Hmm, I can see the controversy right now: fanbased gay-mod banned in x - countries... Government MP's state: "This is worse then the hot coffee mod for GTA!"
