Two standout similarities between the Mass Effect 2 characters featured in the following trailers: they both enjoy killing, and they both sound like they’ve been up all night smoking cigars. Check out the new story trailers for Grunt and Thane.

Shepard sure does get slammed up against the wall a lot in these videos. It’s nice to see the return of healthy internal conflict, although knowing BioWare, it’s probably just a form of space flirting. Thane seems appropriately immoral, and Grunt might end up making Wrex look like Gandhi. Both videos end with a “Fight for the Lost” banner, which probably points to the en masse abduction of humans referenced in prior story videos.

Fire up the Normandy with Thane and Grunt on the 26th.
