When people think ‘Mass Effect’ and ‘controversy,’ the first thing that typically comes to mind is the commotion around the endings, but that wasn’t the only thing fans took issue with. Remember the whole thing around Tali’Zorah’s romance? (NSFW and spoiler warning.)
Here she is, and doesn't she look adorable? This is Tali'Zorah, and that is indeed her entire full first name. She was born this weekend to a couple in North Carolina and yes, she is named for the Mass Effect character. BioWare, the studio behind Mass Effect, tweeted out her picture as a tribute this afternoon.
"Tomorrow my daughter is scheduled to be born," wrote a soon-to-be-dad named Adam last night. "Since day 1 her first name was always going to be Tali'Zorah. ... My wife fell in love with the name during our first playthrough of [Mass Effect] many years ago."
Check out this rad Mass Effect 3 print by Courtney Billadeau, now available for preorder from the Bioware store here. It's called "No One Left Behind."
We are 8 months from Mass Effect 3's release and still unaddressed is one critical detail everyone expects the trilogy will at last reveal: the unmasking of Tali.
