Just a few days before its release, the launch trailer for Mass Effect 3 has surfaced, on that greatest of info dumps: the internet. As one might expect, said trailer is awash with epic battle scenes, epic music, and the ominous specter of death - a noble sacrifice for the cause of righteousness - rearing its ghastly head in the cold vacuum of space. Familiar faces make their respective returns, inspired words paint a harrowing picture of man's darkest hour, and as always, Captain Shepherd storms the S.S. Poonany like a true champ.
As anyone with a computer knows, there's been an onslaught of advertising, announcing Captain Shepherd's return like he/she is some kind of interstellar Jesus. Yet hype aside, I have a sneaking suspicion that ME3 has a great deal of promise. I missed out on the first Mass Effect - it remains on my "to play" list to this day - but I thoroughly enjoyment of ME2. Story and gameplay were solid, characters were well-realized enough for you to care about them, and overall, It just seemed that a good deal of care was put into the game.
So check out the above video, and feel free to share your thoughts about ME3 in the comments section below!
