So she looks like Joanna Dark

I don't mind them trying to give the old characters some new visual flourish, but I don't dig this.

Ashley in Mass Effect 3

What's the problem?

#3 Edited by Dallas_Raines (2158 posts) -

How else can you make a space racist appealing? Plus, it makes sense for a bit more femininity to shine through since she's no longer a marine.

#4 Posted by newhaap (421 posts) -

I think her facial features are pretty much the same. She's just wearing more make up it looks like. Is that the problem?

#5 Posted by OllyOxenFree (4970 posts) -

Too bad she's dead to me... LITERALLY! Jajajajajaja.

#6 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Bloody insult to Joanna.

#7 Posted by Cornman89 (1579 posts) -

I don't see it.

#8 Posted by Spoonman671 (4596 posts) -

Joanna Dark is your wallpaper?

#9 Posted by adoggz (2064 posts) -

if by "looks like" you mean "they are both white girls" then yeah.

Considering how I think every human in Mass Effect looks like a lump of sculpted, shiny plastic with greasy but hard hair that sounds like a compliment. Seriously, Bioware can't do people at all.

I read this then looked at the pic again and laughed for a good minute

@eroticfishcake might want to get your eyes checked
#13 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5143 posts) -

Nah Ashley got way more polygons.

#14 Posted by eroticfishcake (7783 posts) -
@Tim_the_Corsair: They certainly look better in ME3 but it doesn't change the fact they've always looked pretty wooden to me.
#15 Posted by Hailinel (24405 posts) -

Well then.

Hmm.

I mean, their hair is parted in the same direction, and they're both wearing catsuits, but that really describes any number of sci-fi ladies, you know? Beyond that, I don't really see a resemblance.

#16 Posted by believer258 (11794 posts) -

Wait... that doesn't even look much like the Ashley I remember from ME1? 
 
Besides, she's:

so I don't really remember her features. Only beat ME1 once...

So? She's dead in my timeline. So long as Kaiden doesn't look like her, I don't care.  
 
Also, Mass Effect 1 spoiler in there.

You should. it'd make you less lame.

They are both white women with blue suits. Beyond that, no ...

#25 Posted by Hailinel (24405 posts) -

@HandsomeDead: Classy as ever, I see.

But the real reason I posted the PDZ version was because her hair looks at least a bit more like Ashley's than the original Joanna.

@Hailinel: No, it doesn't. Don't try to retcon. And, yes; there is a certain class in being honest.

I laughed because I'm in the same boat.

Yeah, what?

The only thing even slightly similar is they are female and they are in weird future blue suits. That's about it.

Their hair is parted the same way. No, it's not the exact same style, but PDZ Joanna's hair bears a closer resemblance to Ashley's.

she's no longer a marine? what did I miss between the last DLC for ME2 and now?

Court martialed for space racist tendencies?

Or for quoting Tennyson for no reason. You get a dishonorable discharge for that.

The side sweep doesn't invalidate the different colour, style and general attire and lack of likeness in the characters.

I can't work out which of you two has the biggest vagina.

I'm still annoyed people didn't vote for the Natalie Portman look-a-like female Shepard.

I guess they look the same in that they both look like generic video game characters.

#43 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11625 posts) -

Well, I still killed her off in my main playthrough, because obnoxious space racism is racist. Of course, they could pull an Anders and rewrite her so much that she practically isn't the same character. Bioware isn't above doing that, I mean they managed to trivialize the roles of Specter and Grey Warden in ME2 and DA2 respectively despite those practically being the apex of the first games' plots.

I don't see it, and Ashley's eyes look fucked up

I never thought Ashley was a good character. At least now she's mildy attractive

#47 Edited by Simdrew1993 (1 posts) -

I don't really see too much of a resemblance, only minor, maybe the nose and expressions. But if you really want to see a Joanna Dark for your Mass Effect 3 game then here is my code: 741.76F.CJ7.G7R.T6A.35W.1N6.7HN.PE8.495.DF5.625 she is rather popular with Perfect Dark fans and even many Mass Effect Fans. If you are a fan of the character then this is a must for any die hard PD and Mass Effect Fans. When making her I based her on the XBLA Perfect Dark remake In-game screens, concept art, Perfect Dark N64 In-game art and concept art, as well as Perfect Dark Zero in-game art and it's concepts as well to create the ultimate Joanna.

Here are a few images:

And this shows you how I made her armor, you can use Gibbed's save editor if you wish to have all armor and start out with everything at the beginning. Feel free to use her for anything you wish, pics, videos, stories, anything, but if you use her for anything don't forget to credit me, Simdrew1993

Thanks.

Here is the code again: 741.76F.CJ7.G7R.T6A.35W.1N6.7HN.PE8.495.DF5.625 Enjoy! ;)
