Remember last month when I told you that Japanese figure house Kotobukiya teamed up with BioWare to design a statue of Mass Effect's Liara T'Soni? That discussion devolved pretty quickly, didn't it? Let's try that one more time.

At NYCC, Kotobukiya was displaying it's upcoming Bishoujo figurine line, with the completed Liara model among them. As you can see in the gallery images below, compared to the unpainted prototype, Liara has undergone some slight revisions as per fans' criticism. Most changes are subtle, such as how her face is a bit more slender, while others are obvious, like her boob reduction. Of course, the added detail thanks to paint job is able to accentuate or downplay features that were understated or too pronounced previously. Those who were concerned over the prototype's "baby face" should be pleased to know that Liara looks a bit more aged now. The floatation device deflation ought also to minimize the "oxersexualization," although how well you think Kotobukiya addressed the issue is up to the individual.

Is this remodel, which has been priced at $59.99, something you would be willing to buy? Are you fearful of the news that two more Mass Effect Bishoujo sculpts are being planned? If anything, you should take solace in the knowledge that, sometimes, if you complain loudly enough on the Internet, changes will be made.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel's new downloadable character is out this Tuesday

The inaugural PAX South is wrapping up today, and Gearbox's panel just ended. We heard about the plans with Homeworld earlier, but the studio's cash cow for the past several years has been the Borderlands series, so of course...more

Gravity Ghost is pretty so I took a bunch of screenshots

I just finished playing through Gravity Ghost (expect a review later today), and as I tend to do with less action-focused titles or sequences, I took a lot of screenshots along the way. Not only does Gravity Ghost's planet-or...more

Toukiden: Kiwami has better abs on PlayStation 4

Between Toukiden: The Age of Demons and Freedom Wars, I'm slipping way behind on hunting/action games. Probably for the best, in the former case: Omega Force is coming out with an expanded version, Toukiden: Kiwami, that incl...more
