BioWare has altered some camera shots from the Mass Effect series for the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition remaster package.In an interview with Metro, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition's Project Director Mac Walters said that the team changed certain camera angles that were deemed gratuitous. "Kevin [Meek] actually called out some camera cuts that were just.... why was that focusing on Miranda's butt?," Walters explained. So in some cases, we said, 'Okay, we can make a change there'."

People really need to tell me about the obsession with Miranda, she looks like Michael Jackson with a fat ass. Complain all you want about what naughty dog did to the bodies of people but BioWare REALLY fucked up Yvonne.

Ok, but you can still see people violently shot, crushed, burned, frozen, stabbed, poisoned, electrocuted, exploded, medically experimented on, impaled on alien spikes, driven insane by alien chuthu, black holed, melted alive into gray goop.

Why don't they remove all of that also? That sounds much much worse then some gratuitous ass shots.

If I want some ass I'll get it in the real, only neckbeards complain about devs removing fake ass because they aint getting any and its the closest they've been to a woman.
how very resetera of you bro, I do just fine, just not a fan of the woke left coming in and ruining any form of sexualisation in media. it's okay if you wana bend down and take it in the rear quarters, but I will protest until i am forced to play as a transgenered pig woman!

They made a new game with no butt shots and it was a technically incompetent and buggy mess. Why insult those who worked on the original games by making a statement about how their artistic decisions were immoral? Man, they love to rewrite history. Make a new game that people actually want to play.

Also, Netflix is pretty progressive yet they have shots of that weird eyed chess girl running around in long shots with no bra and titties bouncing up and down. They're woke but they still give you chicks to look at. Video games seem to be disposing of pretty women while movies and TV can still have them.

Gratuitous shots are funny. In movies and video games. Just let the content stand on its own. If you want to drag the devs through the mud do it for that Tali reveal. They didn’t even do a cutscene for her face.

Fuck you Kevin Meek for being a woke cuck, fuck you Mac Walters for being spinelessly complicit to retroactive censorship. Asshats like these two are why we can't have nice things. Put them on the list.

That shot is more comical than sexy tbh.

But just in case you thought Bioware might redeem itself I hope this serves as a reminder that it will never do it. Not because the scene is a big deal, but because it's symbolic of the SJW mind-rot that infects this studio now. The only way it gets better is if they burn it to the ground & start over. It's also a very strange sense of perverted puritanism, where at the same time promiscuity is promoted at all turns and yet sexualisation is also strictly prohibited in many instances. A very schizoid and sick form of thought, somewhat reminiscent of the self-flagellation that used to be so popular with some religious individuals.

Good thing the modded version on PC is even better than this remaster, so we have the choice.

I can make a change with my wallet since I hate any kind of censorship in previously uncensored material. ME remasters are currently in my 'deep sale' wishlist, but who knows what else BioWare or EA will censor or "modernize" until May release.

Also, does anyone else see the hypocrisy when it comes to "this is sexist/exploitation because...." but then the same people crying about it are also like, "Duuuude, did you see the new Cardi B video? She's breaking boundaries for women!"

Complete clown world.

But you don’t understand. Sexualization is bad unless it’s an ugly lady being sexualized.

Honestly, I always thought it really odd the way they shot some scenes.

That being said, wasn't she genetically engineered to be seductive? I can't remember. In that context it makes as she would emphasize it her self. I really don't recall the specifics though.

Eh, don't care about some virtual ass

If you are older than 17 and care that much about virtual bottocks, get out of your parents basement and go try to get some in real life, you weirdo
Sure you say that but what about people screaming as they are melted down to form the flesh and body of a horrific alien fetus?

Years ago gamers of all stripes were unified in their opposition to attempts to censor games. It was so fun back then to just shoot the shit, play games, and tell the book burners to pound sand. And out of no where this great schism appeared. And suddenly it became fashionable to call gamers all sorts of names if they did not follow a certain political outlook. And here we are today, with people arguing over whether sex appeal belongs in videogames, even though countless people from both sides of the argument probably start and finish their day watching pornhub.

Anyway, here's my two cents on this topic. I played the hell out of the ME trilogy. It was, in my opinion, one of the best video game experiences of all time. If you never played these games, and the tech results of the remake look good in the reviews, I highly recommend giving it a go (but wait a bit, the cost should drop really fast). I think its absolutely stupid that the puritans were allowed to get their mitts on it, but the occasional gratuitous butt shots were not what made this trilogy so great.

You don't find it disturbing they are more concerned with removing ass shots then people literally being impaled or melted alive?
its been like that forever, this is nothing new. Nudity and or sexualization's has always been seen as bad compared to violence, thats a North American thing.
how very resetera of you bro, I do just fine, just not a fan of the woke left coming in and ruining any form of sexualisation in media. it's okay if you wana bend down and take it in the rear quarters, but I will protest until i am forced to play as a transgenered pig woman!
how very alt-right of you. You sure you do fine? You're the one who came at me because I dont give a damn about it and your all butt hurt because you cant see video game ass. Sounds like your life is worse off than it it is when a brother gets mad because he cant seem them pixels compared to eating ass in the real.
Sounds like something a neckbeard would say.
Nah, only the neck beards complain about getting pixels

We're human, we like seeing nudity and violence is the media we consume, sexualisation is great, men and women both like it, it's in murica where its been demonized, first by the christian right now by the woke left. this ain't about real life dude, stop trying to flex that you had sex once, it adds nothing to the convo

Yeah, I guess we are puritans because we don't care about pointless shit in the shooty bang bang space game.

Or maybe we just aren't 15 year old boys who jerk off to video game tittys?

I don't know, which one could it be?

You people are so predictable. You're screeching of "CENSORSHIP" is so funny. What censorship? Nobody is forcing them to make these changes. Hell I'm sure EA would have been fine with a cheaper "just uprez this shit" remaster. You people delusionally like to play the "creative freedom" card, but only when it lines up with your views. But unsurprisingly, not when it doesn't. Because that's what it is here. Maybe you don't agree with their point of view, but it really is just creators looking back on the creation and deciding to change something they now don't like a decade later. They are allowed to do that and as long as the originals still exist (for you I guess to jerk off too), there's really no problem.

So please follow the same advice you give to people when they voice disapproval on these things that trigger you. Don't like it. Don't buy it. As you have no right to tell these creators what they can and can not do.

Me? I'm looking forward to revisiting this series. Never played the DLC and find ME1 super rough to play now. Can't wait to see all the solid storytelling and gameplay(you know the things that actually matter about this game) in higher fidelity and better presented. I'm sure I won't even notice less of Miranda's butt. Which honestly, since I'm not a neckbeard and wasn't back when ME2 came out, I stopped noticing pretty much right after the scene that lives on in gif form. I said to myself "wow she has fitt ass, surprise that they modeled that" and then went on with my life.

I agree, however if you're getting off on some pixelated shit compared to the real thing, I'm starting to look at you sideways bro, if thats how you get it and get off thats great however realize your bitching and moaning about FAKE nudity vs the real thing. I really think you really need to know the difference. I am not going to complain about gaming nudity because its fake. you do you though bro.

Does that question even really need to be asked?
