    I don't really see featuring a trans-gender person as problematic. I see his or hers bad-writing as a problem, as well as of any other character in the game.

    Where is your source for this? Because Mordin (at lease in ME2 that I know) was written by Weekes.

    Eh, you're not that off the mark. Gaider is literally SJWing over this issue on tumblr, for example: http://dgaider.tumblr.com/post/69901751396/on-character-appearances-and-mods. It has been brought up repeatedly by Bioware fans - thereby proving, on one hand, that they are not complete drones, and on the other, that they are in it to virtual fuck these NPCs - but to no avail.

    Nobody knows what goes on at Bioware headquarters but the SJW crowd looks to have immense creative control within the DA group, to the degree that they are able to dictate art design and characterization completely.

    A Bioware post. But I've learned yet again to distrust them. Let me check into it.

    yes you can hold rmb for constant attacks. in tactical view there is auto attack.

    they looked like that on xbox360/ps3/low settings on pc. check any video on jewtube comparing graphix on platforms. some people are to retarded to even check graphic options in game menu.i am playing on high and hair looks ok. although beards are fucking terrible and loading times are shit

    you are trolling right? comparing very first tutorial area with 3rd person shooter where your character already at the beginning is fucking commander Shepard? did you also complained about lack of targeting body parts in DAO or any fucking crpg in last 20 years? FYI you can target body parts of bigger enemies(giants/dragons) like in Dragons Dogma

    You really can't know how fucking horrible it is until you actually play it.

    This is one of the biggest pieces of shit I have ever played. Skyrim and Fallout 3 are masterpieces compared to this crap - i'm not kidding.

    The funny thing is that you don't need to make a character look like an ugly facemelt to avoid objectifying them. A character can still look good/normal/presentable without being pimped out like a porn star, it all depends on their presentation.

    They made Sera's sexual orientation her dominant character trait, and her appearance is entirely defined by this one-dimensional, arbitrary trait. They are still objectifying her. She's Bioware's Token Lesbian, to complete the SJW ensemble.

    Checked into it, made the correction. Weekes is indeed responsible for Mordin, though my sources still say Carver was written by Kristjanson.
