Take earth back


For years the domain for keeping earth safe has landed in the hands of men. However, with earth falling into Reaper control, and the Covenant destroying the planet Reach. The job of being the savior of the galaxy has now landed into a female’s hands. Whether it is taking Earth back, or guiding Master Chief through enemy Covenant forces, these women have been propelled to front lines for battle.  So grab some popcorn and enjoy the ride. As these women are no strangers to gearing up for battle. It is now time to show the world that these women can really handle their own.


Fem Shepard

Mass Effect was the first game of its kind to really shine when it came out back in 2007. This science fiction action role-playing third person shooter series centers on your character Commander Shepard in a mission to save the galaxy from Reapers. In addition game allows the individual to choose which gender the player wanted to be. However, what makes this game shine is Fem Shepard, as the majority of the game players prefer to play Shepard as women. What constitutes Fem Shepard as such an amazing character are the emotions you feel when playing her. In addition, the aspect of just kicking butt as a female character is pretty awesome. Fem Shepard allowed the players to take earth back by creating and designing your own female character and deciding what she chooses to say. This allows the player to become more evolved in the gameplay experience.

See what I mean, who wouldn’t want to play as Fem Shepard and follow her into battle? Saving the world one female at a time, because a female fighting at the same level as a male is just more badass!



Being praised as one of the best first person shooter on a video game console. Halo changed the lives of many individuals. In addition, one of the most memorable is Master Chief’s companion Cortana. Cortana is an artificial intelligent or AI from the Halo game series. Cortana helps guide Master Chief through a battle against humanity and the Covenant. Cortana is responsible in preventing the activation of the Halo installations, which would have destroyed all sentient life in the galaxy. So why is Cortana such an amazing character? Without Cortana where would Master Chief be? Cortana throughout playing the Halo series plays an important role while playing the game. For an example, Cortana destroys four Covenant targets; Cortana monitors the communications channels, help direct human survivors, deactivates bombs, oh and stops the Halo rings from destroying the galaxy. Its safe to say that without Cortana not sure where Master Chief would be or how he would make it without her.

See what I mean? Without her could Master Chief ever had stopped the war?
