Video of the Day: Commander Shepard Saves the Earth (Sort Of)

Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

In which Commander Shepard is kind of a dick

You can fight like a Krogan, run like a leopard, but you'll never be better than Commander Shepard. At least, that's what Miracle of Sound said. Still, you know it to be true. That guy's a freakin' hero, right? (Especially when you make him make the really heroic choices in Mass Effect.) And he's definitely a powerful, motivational speaker.*

Let me burst your RP bubble for just a moment to point out that the voice of Commander Shepard belongs to a real guy, voice actor Mark Meer. While the folks from sneakyzebra were at the MCM London Comic Con, they enlisted Mark's help in motivating a guy with a shovel to do his part in saving the planet from invading aliens that may or may not have ray guns.

Thank you, Commander Shepard. (Or Mark Meer, as the case may be.) Thank you for leading and inspiring us. Earth is safe as long as there are good men and women with shovels and golf clubs willing to take up arms at the sound of your voice. Lead on!


* I know there's a female version of Commander Shepard, but he's a dude, damnit. I'm a girl, and even I want The Shepard to be a dude.
