Watch out! Here come the Reapers
Editor's Note: Set those up in a nice gallery!
The Mass Effect series is one of my favorite video game series of all time. And I wondered what would happen if the Reapers got a hold of other alien species? Now you no longer need to imagine what they might look like thanks to Andrew Ryan.

Concept artist Andrew Ryan decided to come up with his own ideas on what the different alien creatures would look like Reaperfied. Check out the pics below for this awesome art. The Salarian is definitely one of my favorites, and the Volus is just awesome to look at. Check out Andrew Ryan’s DeviantArt gallery for more and be sure to let him know how much you like these in the comments.
Remember that one part in the game where you're talking with the Elcur ambassador and he tells you that he needs you to save his home world, while going in to detail about the Elcur warriors and how they fight. My eyes just lit up and I got really excited to see these guys in a war. So I flew all the way to the home world, launched a probe... and that was it. Bioware really should have put more time into developing the various planets and races in 3rd game. Aside from the main races and the Citadel. I mean we only saw Earth, EARTH, in a few missions.
SPOILER ALERT?: The Bioware team really did miss an oppurtunity with the Reaper invasion. It's been quite evident that some species were more important than others such as the Turians, Asari (aka the Hotsari), Humans (aka...Humans), etc. Because of this, I felt that the galaxy was smaller than it was originally drawn out because these other species never appeared anywhere besides the Citadel.
Hence, why not have these indoctrinated versions of the Vorcha, Batarian, Hanar, Quarians, as the main enemies or grunts of the litter and the Turians (Maruaders), Asari (Banshees) be the special enemies, like the special zombies of Left 4 Dead? I would've been more intimidated facing a Reaper Elcor, than those generic Brutes anyday. Whose the minority now bitches?
This is great!
