Gaming Fact of the Day

Most Advanced Character Face Generator

The videogame with the most advanced character face generator is the Bioware creation Mass Effect. Blending together over 150 different facial features, the system offers over 1 billion permutations for the face of lead character Commander Shepard. Most impressive is the software that animates the full range of face options, turning a lifeless doll into an expressive personality, a character that acts her lines rather than simply reading them aloud.
