Ever since Friday night, I had spent the entire weekend ranting & raving about my excitement upon two things: The Walking Dead new episode which aired last night, and the world premiere of the new Mass Effect 3 trailer which would show during the commercial break. It was just too much excitement for me to handle, but I think I behaved myself very well. Yes, I did walk around the house like a little kid yelling and shouting my sentiments on how awesome Mass Effect is in general, and how much I can’t stand Shane on The Walking Dead. But at least I didn’t call up all my guy friends and engage in hour-long video game talks (I was too tired for all that.)
So, The Walking Dead was surely an awesome episode last night (duh, it’s always great.) But the best moment of last night was that simply stunning cinematic trailer for Mass Effect 3. Us gamers had been teased with a hint of the trailer on Wednesday, but it wasn’t until last night that we got to experience the full trailer with a run time of 2 minutes & 3 seconds. I was a little disappointed BioWare just teased us with a piece of the trailer earlier in the week, but I was extremely happy to have that early access to the Mass Effect 3 demo. If you haven’t played it yet, then totally go download it!
I was literally glued to the TV the entire hour while the new episode of The Walking Dead premiered, and when the ME3 trailer premiered, I think I lost all the sensation in my nerve endings; I went completely numb. I had no idea that I could ever be so excited for a game, but apparently Mass Effect 3 has this insane pull on me. I could probably ascertain that is has something to do with my love for sci-fi (I stayed up till 2am finishing the second book in Ultimate HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy.)
So, I basically love sci-fi/futuristic themes, even a hint of fantasy doesn’t bother me. The entire Mass Effect series has such a powerful story line, and the RPG elements infused with action make it such amazing game. It’s the best of both worlds! I had already beat Mass Effect 2 (never finished one on my first Xbox 360,) on my current Xbox 360, but it’s at my brother’s house. So I decided to buy it on Ps3 and play it over again in order to be ready for Mass Effect 3. I’m almost done with the story and all the side missions, so I should be ready for March 6th launch of Mass Effect 3.
If you missed The Walking Dead last night & the world premiere of the Mass Effect 3: Take Earth Back trailer, then watch the cinematic trailer below. It’s truly a mindblowing trailer that Mass Effect fans will surely enjoy. Dude, we’ve got to “Take Earth Back!” Haha, seriously, I’m uber stoked! It’s hard to be disappointed with this trailer, unless your just an ultimate hater (a lot of those on Twitter last night.) Either way, watch the trailer and see how awesome it is for your own eye. It’s pretty spectacular, right?! Okay, let me stop before the ranting begins….
So for now, I’ll keep enjoying the coverage of this upcoming game, and I’ll try to keep my geeky ranting to a bare minimum. :)
P.S. You totally
need should watch the trailer in HD. It’s even more stunning when watching it at 1080p.
