Mass Effect 3 E3 Trailer

It’s no secret that I am a fan of BioWare’s Mass Effect trilogy.  As many times as I’ve played Mass Effect 2 it would be safe to say my addiction to BioWare RPGs remains firmly in place.  BioWare and Microsoft made it a point to showcase the game at E3 this year and while there was a lot of news that came out, it’s overshadowed by the trailer.  The trailer showcases the Reapers attack on Earth as well as the more refined combat that has been introduced in the 3rd game of the trilogy.  Also, Shepard gets some pretty badass energy blades.

Very good trailer, it looks like it’s designed to try to bring some shooter fans in as well.  And I have no problem with that.  March 6, 2012 cannot get here soon enough for me to play this game.

I’m planning on putting together a more comprehensive listing of Mass Effect news from E3 but until then I did want to provide a link to an article by IGN.  The author was lucky enough to receive a chance to play a demo Mass Effect 3.  Their reaction just continues to prove that BioWare gets it.  By that I mean they know that an overarching in-depth story that gets you invested in characters and situations can really resonate with you.  There are some minor spoilers for the beginning of the game, but I encourage you to read Mass Effect 3 Made Me Cry: And you would have too on IGN.

Update: Just saw that BioWare has put together a live action trailer to tease Mass Effect 3. It reminds me a lot of the live action Halo trailers that were released for Halo 3.  That being said, its pretty cool to see a live action husk.
