Every time I hear about this, my first thought has always been to watch Ghost in the Shell again, and maybe read the cliff notes of what happened in this whenever it comes out.

Man no one gives Vega any love. The guy functions a good tank, basically replacing Grunt. And he is surprisingly genre savvy and sarcastic if anyone actually decides to take him on missions. He actually acts like real soldiers do. He obviously has had a difficult past not that anyone will give him 5 minutes to hear it. He acts exactly as he was designed to be, a relative newcomer tank with surprising intelligence.

Vega aside this doesn't look too bad but its the type of anime people aren't used to seeing in 2012.

I took the time to talk to Vega, and while his overly meathead persona annoyed the hell out of me, along with that loco shit, I AM YOUR COMMANDING OFFICER AND THE SAVIOUR OF THE *bleep*ING GALAXY YOU ASSHAT! I found his backstory to be slightly interesting.... But seriously who the hell was out there clammering for a Vega anime?

*In the Bioware headquarters*
Hey guys let's license an anime that takes place before mass effect 3 that stars one of the squad!

Hmm lets see, Garrus? Too popular. Tali? Waaaaay too popular. Liara? Too popular + she's actually perfect for the anime and has the perfect drama. Legion? Too popular. Grunt? Too popular. Wrex? Too popular.

You know what screw the squad! Hows about someone else from the universe!
Aria? hmm an anime on how she loses Omega or retakes it would be perfect! So no. Anderson? BAHAHAHAHA too popular.

Hows about we make an entirely new teammate that doesn't have the history and popularity of any of the cast and star him instead!


With this train of thought I can see now why they chosed to go the starkid route. Vega wasn't "bad" but in the final game I (and others) would much rather prefer having a vet on our side that we've actually shared history with. An anime about him won't change how I feel in the slightest, I'm just not interested in him.

What? Vega?

Who the hell green-lit this?!

Just in case anyone doubted that BioWare has lost touch with their fans, this should prove it. No one asked for this. No one wants it. No one likes Vega.

The hell.

Pretty much.

Could have been a good idea if executed differently though I think. If there was lead up material (anime or whatever else) that got spread around before the game was released that could have made him easier to attach to, and less "OH BY THE WAY HAVE THIS GUY" when the game started.
