    Damn these are awesome and the comments within them make it even better "Just imagine the deafening squeak of a thousand asses rubbing on glass." hah

    As someone who love the indoctrination theory on Mass Effect, I find that Reaper Shep ball-numbingly awesome.

    Amazing how many redesigns are done to come up with a final product to please the masses. I feel bad for the artists how draw these, their hands must hurt >.<

    I love the "goofier" Cerberus concepts, I can see understand why they decided not include them in the end but I really wish they had!

    This was a great article. I love to see and hear the thoughts of the people that make these games we all play and enjoy. Not to mention seeing some of the early ideas they had for the games. Loved the Shepard turn Reaper tech one the most. That would have been a great idea if Shepard had died in ME2 and he was salvaged by the Reapers and turned into that hybrid between ME2 and ME3. Then in ME3 you took control of a new character and had to fight Reaper Shepard at some point in the game; the possibilities this series has.

    The human reaper designs are pretty cool and morbid, as is the reaper shepherd. The rest are just...interesting

    I am so infinitely happy they didn't go in the direction they originally planned to take the Illusive Man confrontation. The final debate was a lot more faithful to his character. Tali looks really interesting, all exotic and alien like compared to her more human final design. Kinda wished they had preserved that look or elaborated on it in some way.

    This was fun to look through and read. It really makes me pine for another adventure through that universe. I'm mostly pleased with the final game versions than these concepts though, Shadow Broker especially. I really like that last one he included with the Synthesis option species. That was how I viewed that ending too, mass relays destroyed or not. It also makes me sad that he had to basically beg the Internet to not overreact over the final battle art. He just shouldn't have to beg people to accept concept art as concept art. Alas, that's not the world we live in.

    The skeletal baby reaper thing is kind of cool. In a creepy, messed up kind of way.

    That second concept art of Kai Leng is closer to what I envisioned him to look in my mind rather than the final in-game version. And y'know what? while I'm definitely on the camp that the Quarians should have looked weird and alien-like, and not like drop dead gorgeous humans like they ultimately did, that design here feels kinda lame to me, mainly because it looks very much like that super clichéd design of the aliens with the little bodies and huge eyes and heads. Here being more proportionate of course, but still.

    I'm not a fan either. That design looks very much like the classic Martian alien that's been around for years.

    I think it looks like a shorter Kaminoan.
