Mass Effect 3 Romance Options

I’ve only been playing for a few hours, but without giving spoilers, I am happy to see that there is a female character that is exclusively a romance option for FemShep and a male character that is exclusively a romance option for MaleShep, and they make it pretty clear right off-the-bat.

Also, both of them are people of color. It’s like this game just knows how to make me happy in every possible way.

A Role-Playing Game About Growing Up Gay

Have you ever been so frustrated, so fed up with where you are, that you just want to throw it all away and run off to somewhere new? In A Closed World you play as a young person who has decided to do exactly that. This console RPG-like game puts you in the shoes of a young resident of a village just outside a forest that everyone says is a place of no return. Supposedly home to hungering demons and a beast that would destroy the village, the forest is forbidden and nobody knows what’s on the other side. However, our hero’s beloved — tired of the oppressive attitude of the villagers — decided to go there, as anywhere would be better than home. Now it’s your turn to follow after. Are you willing to risk everything to find out what’s on the other side?

A Closed World is a unique experience, functioning as a metaphor of the journey that many young gay people go on. In the game, you play a young gay person who is trying to get through a forest, facing demons that represent obstacles queer people may have in their lives. Your goal is not to kill or wound these demons, but to use logic, ethics, and passion in order to persuade them to understand you and to dismantle their prejudices.
