The Five Sexiest Chicks in Gaming – #3: Liara T’Soni

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Mass Effect was a groundbreaking game in many ways. It gave choice and dialogue depth never seen before, and breathed life into a massive galactic universe. It also gave us hot softcore lesbian alien sex. Yes, not necessarily lesbian, I’m aware, but who seriously plays as a male Shepard?

But Dr. Liara T’Soni is not just sexy in the way she displays sideboob during her optional romantic encounter with Shepard. She is also thoughtful, intelligent, and honest if you take the chance to listen. Liara is young for her race – only 106 when you first meet her – and so her ensuing innocent excitement and nervousness when faced with her first real romance is extremely endearing.

Flash forward to Mass Effect 2, and Liara shows her multi-dimensional character when she becomes a hardass information broker tracking down an entity known as the Shadow Broker. This Liara has a thick shell due to the nature of her work, and the likelihood of her conversations being recorded, and it’s a little shocking. She even quotes her mother, who was a semi-villain from the first game. Still, this side of Liara just makes her more real and proves she can hold her own.

Speaking of, similar to…well…everyone on both these lists, Liara can kick some serious ass. She’s a powerful biotic, able to toss enemies all over the place with just the power of her mind. Factor in her seductive voice and cautiously flirtatious nature from the first game, and Liara was an easy pick for this list.

Plus, I’m pretty sure I had you all sold at lesbian alien sex.
