James Vega is being voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr.

Accolades to those who guess this already. Also, more good news for Vega fans, there's a character spotlight for him from GameTrailers. Be sure to check it out. And for the people who are still either "meh" or on the fence about Vega, check it out anyway.

There are some slight spoilers in the clips seen. Nothing ground-breaking and certainly nothing people haven't already deduced from ME2.

Thank goodness for YouTube mirrors. www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqxCaM…


Next, we have the GT.TV special on Mass Effect 3. Now, some of this people may have already seen, but this also shows a ton of new footage. And some of which people will definitely regard as spoilers. A main story mission from early in the game is discussed and some clues are given regarding the main plot. I only watched pieces of a third of it, myself. For those of you who want to brave the spoilers, here are the videos:

The videos are from the Bioware Russia YouTube channel, note the subtitles. The reason I did not link to non-subtitled versions was because I couldn't find any that might not be taken down due to copyright issues.

Now, if you do watch these, I'd ask you to refrain from posting any spoilery comments in the comments section in respect to others.

Were you to ask me; I think James Vega has promise. There's people who rag on the human squadmates for being boring, but I think there's a appeal in the mostly grounded-nature of the human characters. Especially ones like Jacob and Ashley. They keep the story tethered to a more relatable level than if all the squad were flashy aliens or veritable superheroes like Miranda and Jack.

What has me the most excited in the JV video is the boxing-scene. Mass Effect 2 had characters walking about the room with conversations, and that was really engaging. But this seems to indicate Shepard and whatever character or characters you'll be socializing with will be 'hanging out' as it were, rather than solely conversing.

But what got my heart literally beating faster was the music I heard at 1:53-2:04 in Part 1 of the ME3 GT.TV demo. www.youtube.com/watch?v=_B6Sa3…

Maaaaannnnnnn...

Oh yeah; screenshots.

I'd actually already seen the James Vega featurette by the time I saw your comment, but I nonetheless appreciate you keeping your ear to the ground.

I just have to say it: if they will make a similar "sparring" sequence for Garrus and Shepard (mainly, fem!Shep), they will be fulfilling the fantasy of every Shakarian fangirl out there! :iconirapeitplz:

Nah, Garrus will be too busy worrying that his sister will cut his assets off if she finds out he's seeing a human.

I was really iffy on Vega for awhile, but after seeing this I believe I've warmed up to him now. Can't wait to 'see' him for myself when the game comes.

(almost two months...just finished paying off my pre-order...:heart: :heart: )

Love the fact that Freddie Prinze is a gamer as well and played the franchise. I really feel like his addition is great. Shows how the game is getting around to even celebrities. :D

As far as his character though I'm glad to see Vega get the spotlight. Wish he was modeled after Prinze though. I get a feeling of him being a total serious soldier at first who just says "this is just a job." then turns out to be quite the character later on. Plus the boxing thing really connects instead of Vega just talking and Shep just standing there like "durr hurr I'm listening."

Plus he has shotguns and assault rifles. Also great to see the old Mass Effect 1 power "Carnage" back. Looks so badass and I hope I can use it. :iconawesomegarrusplz:

Hopeully Prinze Jr can do an English accent. Still if they'd hired someone like Vinnie Jones it's sound like it was put on, haha.

Tali: Shepard, you have finally saved our people and the world from certain destruction, helped me in times of need, now I think it's time you saw what I looked like...
Shepard: Sure, Tali. Whenever you're ready...
Tali: I have waited so long to let you know that--

I'm ready to be blown away by this game. Can't wait to have some fun at the inevitable midnight release! And hey Bioware, show us FemShep already... I'm sick of seeing male Shepard all the freaking time.

Freddie Prinze Jr was one of my teenage celebrity crushes. Of course, I grew out of celebrity crushes when I got older but now my teenage self can swoon again over FPJ and my adult self can swoon over Vega's character.

I just hope it's at least half as good as Mass Effect 2, because then it would still be considered a masterpiece.
