Remember how frustrating it was that there was no helmet toggle in Mass Effect 2? Wouldn't it be great for BioWare to fix this? Well, too bad. But BioWare will be putting helmet toggle in another game: Star Wars: The Old Republic. From last Friday's Community Q&A:
- Q: Can I turn my helmet on/off?
- A: Helmets will be on a toggle so you can show or not as you like. The cinematic team has an additional override control they can use to turn it off in conversation (in case you like to keep your Trooper helmet on with the awesome voice processing). That way they can override it occasionally to keep you from wearing your helmet during your romantic kiss scene (bonk!).
So there you have it. The take-away for us ME fans is that perhaps Mass Effect 3 will have helmet toggle too. One can hope, right?
