I actually forgot that Shepard can look or act any other way. Now that's impressive.
I totally know what you mean by this! It was actually really, really weird to see the default Shepard with that voice and not my Shepard's face instead. I was like, "Hey! That's not Gregory Shepard!" cause it ain't!
Also, to further the "I know what you mean" of all that, it was drastically different jumping into Dragon Age for that reason as well, because your hero, even though it's you, is more of a shell - you make all the same Shepard-ly choices, but there's not character really behind it unless you feel like voice-acting it all aloud, which I've been known to do but not when I'm playing a female dwarven rogue...
@Yoda and kyuusai - Multiplayer is pretty rad and awesome - my buddy and I have been rockin' the demo for all its worth. I'll happily jam with ya', Yoda!
Anyways, this game looks like it'll be a promising finale to the series, and I do really like what they're showing already for the multiplayer. It'll be a good time to run amuck with my Krogan with my friends.
Oh, amusing anecdote: I first jumped into the demo with my bud a few days ago, and he was like, "Go check the shop because you get a free kit with random stuff in it!" which I promptly did and one of my goodies was a level 3 Krogan Soldier. Rock on. My buddy, however, not so thrilled, since he'd been playing for a few days now, spent some money on the $5k pack and still hadn't managed to unlock a new race haha! Then yesterday, another of his friends joined us and in his recruit pack, what does he find? An Asari of somesort. You can only imagine my friend's good-natured frustration and cussing of our names. The End.
