BioWare’s latest Mass Effect game has been the subject of widespread online ridicule—and it hasn’t even come out yet. The game contains broken walking animations and facial expressions that make the game’s heroes walk and talk like they could take a dump at any moment.

But that’s not the only reason to not buy the game. If you’re the type of person that gets really upset about a video game character you think is gay actually not being gay, CANCEL YOUR PREORDER NOW!

Yep, apparently one of the side female characters, Cora Harper, says she doesn’t like chicks at one point in the game. Uh oh.

This pissed off a lot of people on Twitter. Like dozens of men and women are super mad online. One guy even said he’d kill himself after finding out about it on Tumblr.


Many believe this is an injustice by BioWare because Cora looks super gay because of her haircut. According to Twitter randos, who seem to know what they’re talking about, this haircut and her generally butchy appearance are examples of “queer code.” Just like this same haircut worn by a white dude is an example of “Nazi code.”

Sexuality is important to Mass Effect because your character can go around fucking all their co-workers as part of the game. You can be either a boy or a girl, and your relationship options are affected by your gender.

But there still are lesbians in Mass Effect: Andromeda. This ugly blue alien is apparently a girl, and you can have sex with her as a girl. You can also have lesbian encounters with a few other women.

The real question, however, is why would care about sex in Mass Effect at all? As Heat Street reported in February, the characters in the game are mad ugly and the facial feature bugs make them look even worse.

Only fake gamers with fake libidos would want to get their rocks off to this game. Me and fellow l33t gamers like me will be taking our chubs elsewhere.
