Mass Effect: Paragon Lost

For those that have played or are playing Mass Effect 3, you are pretty familiar with James Vega. For those not James Vega is your newest team mate in  ME3. In my opinion he's more of a replacement of having a Krogan in past games. You meet Vega right off at the start of the game, and becomes playable in your first mission on Mars. As you talk to Vega during the game, he tells you of his last mission to fight the collectors. A mission that didn't go all that well in the end. And a lot of his own crew were lost. In Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, you get to witness first hand exactly what happened to Vega and his fellow soldiers during that time and see how those events affected him going into Mass Effect 3. From the looks of the animation it is nicely done, but would have expected more especially since this is Mass Effect and it's from the same studio that did I.G (Innocence, Kill Bill: Vol.1 (Animation Part), BLOOD-C The Last Dark (2/6/2012 Theatrical Release). Hopefully the storytelling itself will be what makes this movie. Slated for release in December 2012.

"Mass Effect: Paragon Lost is the prequel to the highly-anticipated Mass Effect 3 and follows the early career of Alliance Marine, James Vega. Vega leads an elite Special Forces squad into battle against a mysterious alien threat known as The Collectors. Stationed at a colony in a remote star system, Vega and his soldiers must protect the civilians from a ruthless invasion determined to capture the population for unknown purposes.
