DAY 98: The New Crew  
DAY 98

As the release of ME3 looms nearer and nearer, I'd like to take a moment to talk about the eleventh hour character announcements: Diana Allers, Steve Cortez and Samantha Traynor! Finally, new people to love!

Do you have any strong thoughts or feelings about these new characters, or are you waiting to experience them in-game before you form an opinion? Do you want to romance any of them? What kind of technical skills do you think they'll bring to Shepard's team? Out of all the new announcements, is there one in particular that you're the most excited to meet?

Stupid question: Do we have pics of Steve yet? I'd rather not see anything too spoilerific, so I've been avoiding videos and such. Would anyone happen to have a simple screenshot of this guy's face?

I don't know anything about him yet, but I really hope my main Shepard likes him. Because if he doesn't, he's not romancing anyone. At all. ´ n´

Is that Samantha in the banner? She's incredibly pretty~

I'm actually very excited about Allers because of her role as a journalist! I can't wait to see how her interactions with Shepard might influence people outside the Normandy. Don't know if I'm going to like her character much, but her role is very interesting to me.

I think this is the best screenshot that we have of Steve's face right now. I like him a lot. ♥

And yes, that's Samantha! I think she's beautiful. I can't wait to meet her! She seems very sweet, much like Kelly Chambers.

Thanks for the pic! My reaction to it was about as neutral as a reaction can get. :'D He looks like a generic background character to me. But that's fine, I'm sure my opinion will change when I actually get to talk to him. (It's not like all other major characters have super unique faces, either. And that's good!)

Must... Avoid... Spoilers... GAH!

I want to get a better feel for Samantha's character. I'm totally running a Shepard just for her. And also going through Liara's romance... trying to see it from Ellie's point of view, give it a fair chance... She does look rather pretty... And you seem to have missed the N in Traynor?

And Steve, too. I want to get to know him, too... Maybe see how my also to-be-completed-boy Shep gets along with him...

... But, I'll be honest, I'm not excited to see Diana at all. As I understand it, she's a self-insert character based on a real person? And that doesn't seem to end well... If I know Bioware at all, I feel like she's just gonna be a terrible thing... Just... Awful, really... But, hey, maybe she'll prove me wrong... *sigh*

Now, back to not existing on the internet for fear of spoilers! ♥
