Mass Effect 3: Take Earth Back trailer premieres!

02.20.2012

In case you weren't watching The Walking Dead last night on AMC (seriously, why weren't you watching?) then you likely missed the premiere of the MASS EFFECT 3 cinematic trailer, which is pretty awesome as these types of trailers go.

Check it out:

Pretty cool stuff.  I played MASS EFFECT 2 and enjoyed the shit out of it, so I'll definitely be picking up this one.  Part 3 looks to be another nice entry into the  action/sci-fi game genre that you can enjoy either individually or on multiplayer.  Since I'm not into 12-year-olds calling me an asshole on a headset, I just stick to the RPG-based gameplay on my own, but I know a lot of people enjoy the online environment.  It's a win-win for all, I suppose.

If you're really into this, then check out the 40-minute gameplay demo here.

The videogame property has been moving forward in a translation to film and anime, so there's no shortage of Mass Effect entertainment on the horizon (there's even a monthly comic).

Here's a synopsis of the game:

Mass Effect 3 will follow from the events of the Mass Effect 2 DLC expansion Arrival and follows Commander Shepard's mission to save the galaxy from the Reapers by rallying civilizations of the galaxy together, while also having to deal with Cerberus, who have decided to turn against him/her.

MASS EFFECT 3 hits the shelves on March 6, 2012

Would love for this series to be turned into a trilogy. However I think it would be alittle hard to pull off. First off the casting of Shepard is hard since everyone literally has their own vision of Shepard. No matter who you pick someone is going to get pissed off that it doesn't live up to "their" Shepard. Also the different outcomes would be hard to pull off without once again pissing off fans. Who will they decide will live Kaidan or Ashley? Lots of difficult choices the filmmakers will

I actually think this is a pretty solid cast list. Seth Green is obviously the only choice for Joker. I like Olyphant as Kaiden and Dafoe as Garrus. And it's always good to get Keith David in a movie. Except I'm not too keen on Matthew Fox as Shepard.

Mass Effect movie? Hmmm.....my dream directors would be either Ridley Scott of James Cameron due to their experience and pure awesomeness with this genre. If they were to give the project to a younger director, I would say either Duncan Jones or Neil Blomkamp.

Good call on Blomkamp. I think he could work wonders with this.

Colour me unimpressed

What started out as a unique production and turned into a bland, brooding, blockbuster.

Mass Effect 1: Matthew Fox as Shepard, Michelle Rodriguez as Ashley Williams, Jeremy Renner as Kaiden, Michael Clarke Duncan as Wrex, and whoever voiced Tali should reprise her. It'd be hard to copy that voice.

Mass Effect 2 is a lot easier: Yvonne Strahovski as Miranda Lawson, Martin Sheen as Illusive Man (both voiced and lent their likeness to these characters). Alan Tudyk as Mordin, Milla Jovovich as Jack, and Doug Jones as Thane Krios (he was good as Abe Sapien, and Thane's pretty much a

Alan Tudyk as Mordin, Milla Jovovich as Jack, and Doug Jones as Thane Krios (he was good as Abe Sapien, and Thane's pretty much a slightly more badass version of him). There's a lot more roles to cast in both films, but I got the basics.

As for director, I know it'll never happen becuase he's already got Star Trek, but my first choice is JJ Abrams.

Ironically enough...

I like Matthew Fox for Shepherd. Just get him ripped up a bit and he'll do nicely.

2nd choice: Jeremy Renner

Hmmm....so you're saying Matthew Fox is only ever allowed to play characters named "Shepherd"? :)

Yvonne is stunning, but they definitely took some artistic liberties with Miranda's body. Still she's the only one who should play the character, but that won't be until the sequel, hopefully. Otherwise they're just rushing the story.

What was wrong with thermal clips? I'm pretty sure they're going to be in this game too.

I'm sorry to say, Kill Billionair, but judging from the demo, they're in the game.

Thermal clips are basically ammo, and 9/10 shooters have ammo-based shooting. So why go generic? The overheating system gives you more choice/control: you can have as much ammo as you like but don't go John Rambo on everyone's ass or you're fucked.
