With discarded audio files, the community is getting discarded content from the trilogy to be adapted.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition has recently hit stores , giving many users the first opportunity to get closer to the saga, or an excuse to revisit its vast universe, never better. One of the characteristics that have most triumphed in the saga has been Shepard’s relationships with the members of the crew. To be successful, a series of circumstances had to occur and now the modders have found audio files that are not in the final version of the game , with which they can recreate romances with people of the same sex.
It is common for voice actors to record more voice scenes than are later used in the final result, with the aim of giving developers more options for last minute changes. This was said by Jonathan Cooper, a former animator at Bioware , earlier this year, detailing that some homosexual scenes were animated, but changed because “America was not prepared for it.” It seems that, fortunately, things have changed and, even through modders, these wishes can come true in the game.
In subsequent tweets, Cooper says that “we compared ourselves to Brokeback Mountain so it was not unacceptable, but I suppose there are different rules for movies and games . Personally, I still believe it was a wrong decision to cut this down, as we protested in the team at the time. . People who have a problem with this can go to hell, they do not deserve to play our games “, firmly sentences the creative.
Now, through modders like Ryan ‘Audemus’ Ainsworth -via TheGamer-, quite recognized among the community, we know that these romance options exist in the audios of the remastering of the trilogy, with dialogues to have relationships with the characters of Jack, Jacob, Kaidan, Ashley, Miranda, Thane and Tali.
