The New Mass Effect Lead – Who Will it Be?

Fernando Blanco from Electric Avenue said - "Those who have played through BioWare’s Mass Effect games know that the story of Commander Shepard has apparently come to an end. Of course, that doesn’t mean that the Mass Effect franchise itself is all over. We’re talking about one of the most popular game franchises available right now, so it would only make sense that BioWare would keep it going. However, BioWare will need to find a new lead character if they want gamers to explore the Mass Effect universe."

I have a strong feeling that James Vega might be the new lead

nrvalleytime1772d ago

You mean the Vega from Street Fighter, yeah? Because claws in space would be awesome.

Seriously though, just no. :-)

James Vega One of the most uninteresting characters in the entire ME universe ? That would be an awful game! even more than ME3

Knight_Crawler1772d ago

They should hire Jade Raymond...she did a good job with AssCreed.

I HOPE EA RELEASES TATTOO DLC FOR IT TOO. I just want to buy new tattoos for the guy for 5 bucks each.

JBallerX1772d ago

I can't say how much I dislike the idea that Vega would be the new lead. That would be such a disservice to this franchise...

coolbeans1772d ago (Edited 1772d ago )

I think they'd shoot that down because of design purposes. It would be a bore for the player to see him work out before and during the beginning of each conversation throughout the entire span of the game. :P

Feels like they're just spinning their wheels.

fblan0011772d ago

I know this is out of topic but thats an awesome avatar you have, did you draw it yourself?

Godmars2901772d ago

If I could draw like this I'd hardly be hanging out on N4G.

I'd be kickstarting my own game. With mechs. And Hookers. And booz. And gambling.

Actually, forget the booz and the gambling...

tigertron1772d ago (Edited 1772d ago )

The following would be good:

- Shepard (seriously, I don't consider Shepard's story finished, there is plenty for Shep to do, providing it follows the destroy ending, which I consider cannon)
- Garrus (because he is awesome)
- Miranda
- Liara
- Tali
- The Illusive Man
- Ashley

BigPappaPump1772d ago

Your Shepard is but mine isn't.

tristanwerbe1772d ago

My Shepard always lives you must have picked the moron options

SpideySpeakz1772d ago

Sign*.. What I mean is, if Bioware says he's dead, then he's dead. No need to whine and pus about it. Move on, losers.

BigPappaPump1772d ago

Bioware confirmed that Shepard lives at the breath scene. There's no need for you to act like a bitch by insulting those who don't agree with you.

aLucidMind1771d ago (Edited 1771d ago )

Who is whining? Nobody, you're just insulting people for stating how they interpreted the Destroy Breath scene. The only "pus loser" in this thread is yourself, the only one in this thread acting like one.

DOMination-1772d ago

It will be a new character Im pretty sure and hopefully a new trilogy. The illusive man back when he was Jack Harper and an alliance soldier would be a pretty cool spinoff single game though.

jrbeerman111772d ago

Yes but I am tired of prequels, they just don't work because you always know what it eventually leads to.

that being said, if it had to be prequel, then you nailed it.

linkenski1772d ago

Just someone who isn't a character we already know please.

Blasto obviously, duh

Seriously though, i would absolutely LOVE a game about Saren!

fblan0011772d ago

Or they could go on the other direction and create a prequel, god forbade.

Harmonizer1772d ago

Im not a big fan of prequels, but a Prequel involving Saren would definitely be of interest to me.
