glitch romance

when the whole fandom is loosing it but you’re actually a few chapters behind:
Same-Sex Romances at Mass Effect Nexus - Mods and community

Bless this modder! You can finally have a same-sex romance with Kaidan or Ashely without twiddling around forever with the mod manager. ^_^


  • Fully-voiced dialogue: Through the restoration of unused dialogue, every line is voiced and animated properly.
  • Anti-flirting: In the vanilla game, simply talking to Ashley or Kaidan would initiate a romance. The mod changes this so the player will have to consciously flirt with Ashley or Kaidan in order for a romance to begin, allowing them to avoid a romance while also not missing out on conversations.
  • No misgendering: Ashley and Kaidan will not refer to Shepard as the wrong gender, and neither will any other character.
  • Functional romance scenes: The previous method of making the romances available resulted in major immersion-breaking glitches during the romance scenes. With this mod, Shepard will appear properly during the scene.

The mod maker, rondeeno,also has said that they’re planning on one for ME2 as well!

Dragon’s Dogma, Capcom’s RPG about dragons and shit, proved that combining video games and romance isn’t always a good idea … especially if the developers don’t know what romance actually entails. What started as a perfectly innocent attempt to bring love into the game ended with thousands of players helplessly seeing their characters molested near a campfire.

Dragon’s Dogma had the rare ability of allowing you to “romance” any character in the game by doing things like giving them gifts or drawing your sword in front of them (in real life, that usually gets you arrested). However, due to a glitch in the system, the only requirement for raising someone’s “romance level” was talking to them – meaning the game would unilaterally decide that whoever you talked to the most must be your lover, whether you liked it or not. So, upon reaching the crucial part of the game where you have to fight a dragon that has kidnapped your beloved, many players were surprised to find out that their beloved was … the guy who runs the inn. Or the old shopkeeper. Or even the mustachioed midget in the jester suit you kept talking to because you were stoned and his voice seemed amusing.

Naturally, after you rescue them from the dragon, that person you talked to a bunch of times wants to give you a reward. A sexual reward. This leads to the aforementioned molestation by firelight.

And all through that, the players could do nothing to stop what was happening to their character, while simultaneously refusing to look away in case some vital game-related information was dropped in the middle of the lovemaking session. Bear in mind that at no point does the game indicate that there’s a romance blossoming between you and a complete stranger – even players who actively pursued romances with different characters ended up with random dudes. At the end of the game, there's another romantic scene where your character wakes up on a beach and your unwitting lover runs to your arms.
